Thumbs down GTK programs refuse to compile


hello,

I'm getting a serious problem with GTK+. All applications refuse to compile, even the simplest.
It never worked out. I'm using a 64-bit version, so I think he doesn't find his labraries. SuSE sucks really as they move things to other locations. I noticed two GTK versions too. Does anyone have a solution for this?
thanx all.

Ronald

If you posted the errors you're getting, it would be alot easier. The last 20 lines or so when you execute 'make' is usually sufficient. Also tell us what package(s) you're trying to install.

Gtk+

Hello,

Well... It was a sample demo of GTK+ which I tried to compile and run without makefile, just using g++. Adding the library in the command-line of g++ doesn't help. This is the code :

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

int main (int argc, char **argv)
{
/* Initialize i18n support */
gtk_set_locale ();

/* Initialize the widget set */
gtk_init (&argc, &argv);

/* Create the main window */
mainwin = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);

/* Set up no GUI elements */

/* Show the application window */
gtk_widget_show_all (mainwin);

/* Enter the main event loop, and wait for user interaction */
gtk_main ();

/* The user lost interest */
exit 0
}

Calling the compiler with g++ testgtk.cpp gives (last lines) :

/usr/local/include/gtk/gtkuimanager.h:144: error: expected constructor, destruct or, or type conversion before ‘*’ token
/usr/local/include/gtk/gtkuimanager.h:145: error: variable or field ‘gtk_ui_mana ger_ensure_update’ declared void

It seems it doesn't find its libraries. Should I remove and re-install GTK or is there a 64-bit problem (e.g. pointer format 64 bits instead of 32)? Is the compiler call OK?

Thanx

Ronald

still GTK...

Hello all,

Checked installed packages : some parts of glade were missing. I Wonder if GTK is complete. Building a GTK-application with glade seems ok, except... After closing the main window it doesn't kill its process... (did ps -A). I only provide a main window. Checked C++ builder under Windows but the structures seem to be the same. However I can't check the code for the widgets there. Any ideas for the reason of this hanging?

Thanx

Ronald
