Description

The gtk.Settings object stores the values of the global settings associated with a gtk.gdk.Screen. The gtk.Settings object for the default gtk.gdk.Screen can be retrieved using the gtk.settings_get_default() function. The gtk.Widget.get_settings() method returns the gtk.Settings object of the gtk.gdk.Screen that the widget is displayed on.
