    Cool Can anyone please tell me how to compile a gtk program ?

    I have made a program that uses gtk for GUI interface
    It can be successfully compiled in codeblocks before when I was using Ubuntu 11.10. But when I upgrade to 12.04, I have to re-install the gtk dev package. And when I compile the program, it says some headers can't be found, For example, gtkconfig.h, cairo.h.

    I have found that some of those lost headers are in another directory that codeblocks doesn't include those when I created the project with default settings for gtk program. I want to change the search directories but it says that I can "use project options only". How can change it, or is there any other solution ?

    Thank you ^_^

    Are you able to compile a GTK+ program from the command line?

    hello.c
    Code:
    #include <gtk/gtk.h>
    
    int main( int argc, char **argv)
    {
    	GtkWidget *window;
    
    	gtk_init(&argc, &argv);
    
    	window = gtk_window_new(GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
    	gtk_widget_show(window);
    
    	gtk_main();
    
    	return 0;
    }
    Then, to compile:

    Code:
    gcc -o hello hello.c `pkg-config --libs --cflags gtk+-2.0`
    If it doesn't work, the packages you need for GTK2 are:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential libgtk2.0-dev
    Obviously if you are working with GTK3, things are slightly different.

    If all that works, you can concentrate on the setup of the IDE, or other packages.
