    I think the Gnome Developer Center tutorials are excellent and you'll struggle to find better for gtkmm. The gtkmm tutorials have screenshots and examples for most of the controls, which is the bulk of what you need really.

    You'll probably find GTK2 books but GTK3 is relatively new. GTK is almost a programming language in it's own right, so any GTK2/GTK3 tutorials will give you useful techniques in any language. You just need to validate any deprecated controls against the GTK3 reference.

    Gnome Developer Center tutorial is good but not excellent.
    it is not complete and have described the gui programing not all the widgets
    i`m looking for something else even worse but there is just one source to learn gtkmm. why?
    does anybody have had wrote any program in gtkmm?

    I have but it was a long and difficult journey. I wouldn't have gotten anywhere if the kind people on this forum had not helped me on many occasions. There is a lack of really good tutorials for Gtkmm (imo), so I think you will find it tough regardless.

    Best thing to do is start on a couple of mini projects and ask questions if you are stuck on something.
    Projects: PhotoFiltre LX | Xwii | URT-2D | TTM

    Looking at other peoples code is one way to learn. If there are any opensource programs/applications that are similar to what you want to do you should be able to get the source code to study and learn from.

    I have written an application called gbzadmin, it's a gtkmm gui for bzflag server administration. You are welcome to view the source code here:

    As r-senior pointed out the Gnome Developer Center tutorials are excellent, but they won't teach you everything. DevHelp has support for gtkmm and is an excellent resource. You can get it from the ubuntu repos if you don't already have it. I find that once you have an idea of how gtk/gtkmm works you can code most anything you need to with the DevHelp reference and Google.

    thanks pbrane
    i find your description so helpful
    i`m at the beginning and need more information
    i have installed Devhelp already. i`m sure it will help me
    i think the best way is the first step.
    i will ask more in future

    thanks anyone who commented
