Quick Question


Just a quick question--

When installing GTK+: it requires Glib, Pango and Atk libraries. do I need to untar all four (4) programs into the same directory or should the set of three programs be installed into subdir's under the main GTK directory, or what should I do?

I wasn't sure if I should have posted this under this forum or in the Newbies...but here it is. I hope that somebody will be able to shed some light.

Many thanks.

You need to install them before trying to install GTK+. It doesn't matter where you unpack them, as when you install them they will be installed in a default directory specified in the makefile. You can override this using the "./configure --prefix=/directory/where/you/want" argument, but it is usually best to leave it, as programs will look for libraries and other files according to the defaults.

Read the README and INSTALL files for more info...

Just to make sure I go this right, GTK will look for those programs wherever they might be installed on my HD?

Thats right. GTK+ is dependent on these other libraries...
