Re: Compiling gtk+ as user (non-root)

Hi Torsten,

	Sorry, but I don't know about gimp, but I have installed GTK+ as a
non-root user, so I'll try to help.

	Ok, two things I set you which you have not.  I don't know if you
really have to set it, but before I installed it, I set:

GTK_DIR - the directory where gtk is installed
PATH - to include "$GTK_DIR/bin"

	Yes, AFAIK, you need to install the following five in this order
(perhaps you can mix up the order a bit, but I use this order and have
installed the latest 1.3 successfully):


	That is, do the config, make, and make install completely for one
before going on to the other, due to the dependencies.

	Our system has an older pkgconfig as well and I installed
pkgconfig-0.8.0 in my own directory using the above instructions without

	I got this pretty much from someone else answering my question a
few months ago.  AFAIK, I don't think there is a documentation somewhere
about installing GTK+ as a non-root.  Perhaps there is, by now, but
hopefully, the above will be enough for you.  Let me know if you need more
help; good luck!
