[Glade-users] gtk-builder-convert

Thanks Tristan,
     I am new to Glade though I have written and run a couple of dot.c 
programs using gtk+  I have both gtk2.0 and gtk3.0 on my machine.

     I guess I did not explain that I was following a tutorial 
http://www.micahcarrick.com/gtk-glade-tutorial-part-3.html and it is 
stated as "GTK+ and Glade3 GUI Programming Tutorial" but looking more 
closely there are a few loose ends.  After generating tutorial.glade, 
run builder then generate the file main.c and compile.  It compiled best 
with gtk+3.0 and generated an executable that could not find gtkObject.  
If I save a new glade fileas tutorial.xml and recompile the new 
executable gives the same error. I think that I am nearly there.

     I have at the moment not succeeded in doing useful work with glade 
but It looks like it will be really good once I get the process of what 
to do with the glade file that I have generated. I'm sure all that I 
need is a push in the right direction? Regards Ian.

Why are you using gtk-builder-convert ?

gtk-builder-convert is a script which was distributed by GTK+ to help
migrate from libglade -> GtkBuilder - if your Glade file did not
have <glade-interface> to begin with, then it was NOT a libglade file
to start out with.

I have to guess that you are trying to convert something that is
already a GtkBuilder UI file.

Furthermore, I should note that I would not recommend using the
gtk-builder-convert script, Glade 3.8 provides a migration path
for libglade format to GTK+2 GtkBuilder files - if you must
convert from libglade I would recommend using Glade 3.8 to do
it, and try to ensure that your project only uses widgets that
are not deprecated in GTK+ 2.24. After this you can use a newer
version of Glade on your GtkBuilder XML which was targeting
GTK+2... newer versions of Glade will then give you access to
newer widgets/properties/signals introduced in GTK+3

      the above is what I get!  Tristan did send me Glade 16 and I was
having a similar difficulty.  Once I generate a glade file what do I do
with it???  The tutorial runs out of steam with the above and I think
it's all compatibility issues.  I do not know what version the tutorial
was based on but Glade 3.14.2 seems to have improved on the way bits
drop into place.  I hope that you can help.  Regards Ian.
