Arrow [CentOS 5.8] GTK2+


Hey All,

I'm having some annoying problem with GTK2.

As I'm trying to run some application, I receive the following error:

Code:
dfxshell: symbol lookup error: dfxshell: undefined symbol: gtk_builder_new
My guess would be that I need to upgrade my gtk version to a newer version than:

Code:
rpm -qa | grep -i gtk2
pygtk2-2.10.1-12.el5
gtk2-engines-2.8.0-3.el5
gtk2-engines-2.8.0-3.el5
gtk2-devel-2.10.4-21.el5_7.7
libswt3-gtk2-3.2.1-19.el5.centos
gtk2-2.10.4-21.el5_7.7
gtk2-devel-2.10.4-21.el5_7.7
gtk2-2.10.4-21.el5_7.7
pygtk2-libglade-2.10.1-12.el5
so I tried downloading gtk2-2.18.9-6.el6.x86_64.rpm, along with the -devel package and it shouts for many missing dependencies.

I'm aware to the fact the package is for CentOS 6 but I couldn't find any newer version than what I already have for CentOS 5.

What would be my option? btw, it happens on both KDE and Gnome environment.


Thanks in advanced.

Nir.

Does this happen with several programs, or with just one? If the latter, which one?

"gtk_builder_new" is a symbol found in a later gtk2 version.

A later gtk2 can be installed to a hideaway location, see post #4 here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ound-933946/#4
Dependencies : Appropriate versions of glib2, atk, cairo, pango.

Using a special gtk2 version, example :
'export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/glib226/lib && <application-start-command>'
(Easy to use : Make a start script with the command(s)).

The export command will put the new libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 first in the "library path".

You can't. No packages available.
The libs must be build manually, ref. the text in the link.

The Fedora 12 = CentOS 6 versions will do : glib2 atk cairo pango gtk2.
Or you can use the Fedora 14 versions, I guess.

I guess I'll just use the latest Fedora version, which uses GTK 2.26

Many thanks for your kind help.
