If it runs properly, why should you need a tutorial?

If you have problems with gtk2, I suggest also trying with Qt which will 
require the libqt4pas-dev (Debian) package. Please keep us updated since 
you're the local expert: I didn't even know that Raspbian had progressed 
to Jessie, and am far too busy to play with it at the moment.
