Re: Gtk+ 3.0 and MS Windows

> Hello!
> I understand that there is a lot of work still needs to be done for Gtk+ 3.0 . However I would like to use some of its functionality now if possible. The problem is that Iâm using gtkmm and msvc++ to compile my code under MS Windows. I wonder about win32 builds of gtk+ 3.0. Is it not buildable under MS Windows yet?

The windows project on the OpenSUSE BuildService has a package for gtk3:
It seems to build correctly. I haven't tried it, but at least the gtk2
binaries produced by the OBS run great on Windows.

> I decided to give it a try and build it myself with MinGW and gcc (4.5.0), but I got stuck in the very beginning. I used binary dependencies/prerequisites available from ftp to satisfy ./configure complaints since I had old prerequisites bundle installed. However ./configure got stuck saying that I have no cairo_pdf.h, though I can see it with ls /usr/local/include/cairo/ . Oh well, I commented out this check. When I executed make V=1 I got this:

It appears that gcc is not in your path.

Also I corrected GlibEtcInstallRoot path and added dash after Gdk into include Gdk-Pixbuf-2.0. However this time it is getting stuck on GDK_TYPE_CURSOR_TYPE and alike in gdkcursor.c while gdkenumtypes.h doesn't contain anything useful as in binary gtk+ 2 I have.

In my experience cross-compiling on Linux using the mingw headers is
_much_ easier than on windows with msys+mingw. I have never tried
