Programming in C with Gnome/GTK
I am not sure this is the right forum for this question, but if not free free to bump me to the right one.
I am running Ubuntu 12.04. I have been trying to learn how to use graphics in C. I have the Gnome 3 development files installed on my machine, which include all the GKT3 files. However, when I try to complile the following code I get a 'no such file or directory' error message referring to the gtk header files. I am sure I am missing some simple thing but I am not experienced enough to know what it is. Can someone point me in the right direction?
int main (int argc, char *argv)
/* Create the main, top level window */
window = gtk_window_new(GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
/* Give it the title */
gtk_window_set_title(GTK_WINDOW(window), "Hello, world!");
** Map the destroy signal of the window to gtk_main_quit;
** When the window is about to be destroyed, we get a notification and
** stop the main GTK+ loop by returning 0
g_signal_connect(window, "destroy", G_CALLBACK(gtk_main_quit), NULL);
** Assign the variable "label" to a new GTK label,
** with the text "Hello, world!"
label = gtk_label_new("Hello, world!");
/* Plot the label onto the main window */
/* Make sure that everything, window and label, are visible */
** Start the main loop, and do nothing (block) until
** the application is closed
Re: Programming in C with Gnome/GTK
You might get better advice in the programming subforum... but at the risk of making an idiot of myself how are you compiling? are you using pkg-config to add include / link flags?
g++ -c ... `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-3.0` ...
g++ -o ... `pkg-config --libs gtk+-3.0` ...
