Thanks for the addition GTK info...looks interesting...by the way I Googled some GTK gui control panels & everything looks gray is there a special reason for that? I'd expect color to be used quite a bit for backgrounds, button colors, etc.
Gtk+ is quite conservative in the use of colour. This was very obvious years ago when Qt first appeared and it's default was to prodice applications that where brightly coloured (and consequently looked like they were designed for 5 year olds
I write Gtk code in C and Python, and both flavours run unmodified on Mint on x86-64 and on Raspbian on Pi. So you won't find any Pi specific tutorials or documentation.
You might find it a little bit slow on a single core Pi, but on a quad core (PI2,3) it's fine.
