Is there a way to change the tooltip background color by editing the gtkrc file of the Redmond theme? I want to change it to yellow (it's gray right now).

If I'm not mistaken, the themes get modified using the CSS files, not the gtkrc. Also, what version of Ubuntu you are using, from where you installed the theme? Please, edit your question and include the information. –  Braiam Aug 11 '13 at 17:32
I'm using Lubuntu, and Redmond theme is a gtk-2, not gtk-3 theme. –  sashoalm Aug 11 '13 at 18:14
