- Download a bunch
stuff. You're going to need both gtk+
itself, as ported to Win32,
and a suitable C-language compiler. In parentheses I show the
specific software versions I have used, but presumably later versions
just as well.
(In fact, since the time this section was written, I have used later versions of most of
these libraries. Forgive me for not providing exact links, but as
you can imagine,
these are likely to change so often that I would have a tough time
keeping them up to date.)
- From www.mingw.org,
download the MSYS (1.0.9) and MinGW (3.1.0-1) exe files.
- From www.gimp.org,
download all of the following zipfiles: atk (1.2.4), atk-dev
(1.2.4), gettext-runtime (0.12.1), gettext-tools (0.12.1), glib
(2.2.3), glib-dev (2.2.3), gtk+ (2.2.4), gtk+-dev (2.2.4), jpeg lib
(6b-1), jpeg bin (6b-1), libiconv lib (1.9.1), libpng lib (1.2.5),
libpng bin (1.2.5) pango (1.2.5), pango-dev (1.2.5), pkgconfig (0.15),
tiff lib (3.5.7), tiff bin (3.5.7), zlib lib (1.1.4-1), zlib bin
- Install MinGW.
This is simply a matter of running the exe
file you downloaded above, and answering the prompts. For the
sake of argument, I'm going to assume that you have used the
installation directory c:\mingw.
- Install all of the zipfiles you downloaded above.
them under c:\mingw. After doing so, you should see directories
such as c:\mingw\bin, c:\mingw\usr, c:\mingw\etc, and so on.
- Move the file(s) libatk*.dll from c:\mingw\lib to
- Install Msys.
Again, this is just running the exe file and
following the prompts. It doesn't really matter what
install-directory you use, but at the end you will be prompted to tell
which directory MinGW was
installed under. (The answer will be
