Using GTK+ from languages such as Perl and Python (especially in combination with the Glade GUI builder) provides an effective method of rapid application development. However, the licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all developers, including those developing proprietary software, without any license fees or royalties. Understand who started it, the basic architecture and why we use the license we do.
If you want to contribute, you are more than welcome.
You will need to get the GLib, GObject-Introspection, Pango, Gdk-Pixbuf, ATK and GTK+ packages to build GTK+.
You may also need some of the external dependencies that are also linked for each version listed below. For additional help, the FAQ is a good starting point.
3.10 I've googled around but only seem to find things that point to tutorials on compiling it from source.
If necessary I will follow them but I'm a bit afraid of braking something.
NB: I use Debian-based Kali that's why the GTK appears so outdated.to avoid a lot of system call and disk seek overhead when the application starts.Since the format of the cache files allows them to be mmaped shared between multiple applications, the overall memory consumption is reduced as well., or the GIMP Toolkit, is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces.Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application suites.GTK+ is written in C but has been designed from the ground up to support a wide range of languages, not only C/C++.
