    I don't think GTK 3.xx is easy but you can start here. http://worldofgnome.org/making-gtk3-...ets-css-files/

    Are you wanting to remove the whitish part in the image? Most everything else is purple.

    Which theme are you using? Which desktop environment? In any case, I'll take a look.

    To my mind, it appear that you need to look at bg_color in ~/.themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0/gtk.css or the same file in /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0.
