Hi

Do you know any other programs, beside GIMP, Abiword, Dia, Glade, GnuCash and Gnumeric. that runs using GTK+ ?

Supporting thread for the GTK+ 2.x (The GIMP Toolkit) port bounty.

Probably not what people are really wanting, but I've starting working on porting gtk+ 2.x for use with an Xserver like Hoblink or xfree86.

The hope is that this will make it possible to build a newer Gimp...

... maybe it is possible to use the win32 backend instead of the XWindows backend. dmik is actually using the odin32 library for compiling Java. As far as i understood there were a lot of changes and adjustments to odin32, especially headerfiles are improved to work with gcc. So its worth a try....

Yeah ultimately that may also be wortha  try - for now I'll try the X11 route.  Mucking around with X11R6 is something new and interesting for me :)

Hi Paul,
   It'll be really cool if you can port X11R6, we really need a new xserver. The XFree86 version that we have is really old.

Hi Paul,
   It'll be really cool if you can port X11R6, we really need a new xserver. The XFree86 version that we have is really old.

Initially I'll be using the X11R6 port from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/xfree86/X.org/

This doesn't include the xserver currently - from Dave's readme:
"The Xserver does not compile, same with XDM and Xload."

My initial testing will be using Hoblink.  Some of the gtk+ test apps are displaying, others don't work yet due to problems with glib and/or pango.

Once all/most of gtk+ test apps work, I'll try build gimp

I'd look at Everblue on Netlabs... it was never fully completed but may have some helpful stuff for select() on sockets and such in it.

Well I don't need that yet - I'm happy with the hoblink solution for now :)
