Re: Failed building GTK with the DFB backend


we are already working with DirectFB and GTK 2.9.4(released)

we will start work with GTK 2.9.4 from CVS as suggested by you.

we will get back if any issue arises.

A couple of days ago mike checked in the patch that excludes from compilation some extra code that requires DFB 0.9.25 in the case DFN 0.9.24 is used. Use CVS sources or apply to GTK 2.9.4 gdkdirectfb.h and gdkwindow-directfb.c from current SVN. If you're a Debian user and run on i386, simply install cairodfb and gtkdfb packages [1] which were made recently available (other archs will follow soon).

Hello Attilio,

Thanks for the quick update. However, the problem goes away when we added
the following:

gdk_screen_is_composited (GdkScreen *screen)
  g_return_val_if_fail (GDK_IS_SCREEN (screen), NULL);
  return FALSE;

is added to gdkscreen-directfb.c (from ).

We will definitely try building gtk+2.9.4 and will get back in case there
are any issues.

One more thing: we would be really interested in gtk+-2.10. Any idea when
this will be out?

DFB support in was broken: you should try 2.9.4 or follow instructions
in the wiki page to build from sratch.
If you're a debian user, you can also use precompiled i386 official
packages that were built this week <-cairodfb <-gtkdfb
