Including other directories g++ & gtk

I am having a problem with compiling g++ with other directories. I am on a university server, so have no changing system rights.

Using glade, made source code and could get g++ to see and process files by writing

bash-2.05b$g++ -I/usr/include/gtk-1.2/ -I/usr/include/glib-1.2/ -I/usr/lib/glib/include/ -lgtk -lgdk -lglib

However, I forgot this won't compile other .cc files that needs.

So I tried to write a Makefile to include other files, and added the -I's and -l's to CXXFLAGS line, but g++ can't see them.

Can anybody help?

Try installing GTK2 to a directory in your home area. GTK2/glib2 use pkg-config which automates a lot of this stuff. Also learn to use autotools. The GTK2 manual shows you how to build using pkg-config. That will let you build projects that don't need to touch the system.

Cheers anyway, in the end I found out you can compile them together in shell window like bash-2.05b$g++ -I/usr/include/gtk-1.2/ -I/usr/include/glib-1.2/ -I/usr/lib/glib/include/ -lgtk -lgdk -lglib.
This works fine. Lucky shell remembers previous inputs, or would be hell tedious.
