[CM] i want that nice gui too

it's that time of the year (or is it every other year?) when i say to myself
_this time_ i'm really going to learn snd.

now, if you could spare a little patience and understanding with a novice
completely guile/scheme ignorant and who doesn't even use emacs, i'd like to
ask for some help with this business of configuring the gui.

1) what's supposed to be in the .gtkrc-2.0 file mentioned by Herrn
Barknecht? i didn't have such a file at home, and copied one i found in the
system, but it's empty, leer, vacío, nada, just a lonely commented line
saying that this is the default theme. 

anyway, copying the Snd.gtkrc frank sent to the list to my home directory
shows a difference.

2) now i would like to load snd_conffile.scm, which i understand is
responsible for the nice looking gui seen in the famous screenshot, but the
message i get is:

gui.scm needs the xg module: xm.so: no se puede abrir el fichero
del objeto compartido: No existe el fichero o el directorio

mmm... is this motif related? i'm mystified, isn't all this about gtk? i
compiled snd thus:

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-alsa --with-gtk --with-jack --with-ladspa
--with-guile --with-float-samples
