View Full Version : How to start playing with GTK+2.8 my attemps failed

September 15th, 2005, 02:36 PM
First i tried to install all the packaged related close or far or gtk programming with synaptics, then i tried to start a gtk+ c and gtkmm c++ project with Anjuta.

however it doesnt recognise this : #include <gtk/gtk.h>

Then i went on Gtk website followed the istruction and get it compiling
from command line with : g++ base.c -o base `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`

what is this `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0` ?
Do i had to really install the gtk tolkit from sources like a did (make make install)
or it is anywhere in the ubuntu repository,

If i wan to make it compile straight in anjuta wiht #include <gtk/gtk.h>,
how can i do ?

thank you

libgtk2.0-dev is the package in ubuntu with the devlopment files for gtk.

pkg-config is a nifty program that finds the correct includes, cflags and libraries to use for compilation.
