GLIB/GTK 101

Postby mem16421 » Fri Aug 23, 2002 12:31 am

I downloaded glib, and gtk from the OpenQNX project. I installed glib and gtk into /usr/lib, /usr/etc...... etc. But I can't seem to get any apps to see them. I am used to the ease of use of Linux, not all this manual stuff :D ..... I'm kidding..... I'm kidding.

Anyway, if you have a suggestion please let me know.

The binaries from OpenQNX project should be installed:
su
cd /
tar zxvf /the/downloaded/file.tar.gz

In case of gtk/glib, you will need to add /usr/openqnx/bin to your PATH, and /usr/openqnx/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

You should also download/install the XFree86 from the same place so that you will have the X libraries and XPhoton. You can then use the XPhoton instead of the stock Xphoton that comes with your QNX 6.1. You can do so by modifying /usr/bin/ph to change all references of /usr/X11R6 to /opt/X11R6, and Xphoton to XPhoton

BTW, your question should really go to the GUI or Applications group. glib/gtk has nothing to do with the OS :)

Thanks I will give it a try.

Yea.. it was a toss-up on if GTK/GLIB was an application or a system library.

:D
