[Bug 1316384] Re: After upgrade from Lubuntu 13.10 to 14.04, color customization is ignored

GTK3 windows and widgets cannot be colorized anymore. Only GTK2 apps keep
this feature. Forthcoming GTK4 libs won't be able to do that neither. So
it's not a 14.04 or 14.10 bug, it's simply a widget lack of features.

Also, the theme has change, now windows' background are almost white in
contrast with "old" versions that were more gray(ish). Now the Lubuntu
default theme follows Ubuntu's Light Themes design guides.

Tooltips visibility problems should be fixed by now if you add the Lubuntu
Artwork Daily PPA or download the standalone version of the theme. More
info here:
