What do you have on your computer?

Thanks, Henning Nielsen Lund:

I have added 'gtk-list' back into the address.
Ups, always forget ;O)

Slackware9.1 'everything' installed from packages
a, ap, d, n, f, g, k, x, and xap.

Slackware 9.1 does use GNOME 2.4.0 ... GNOME 2.4.0 does include
GLib-2.2.3, Pango-1.2.5, ATK-1.4.0 and GTK+-2.2.4

So there should be no problem with GTK+

what they mean with gtk2 is gtk+ >= gtk+-2.0.0

If you have GNOME2 installed you allready have it ...

How can I tell?

My window manager is Gnome and when I right click on
a blank place on the title bar and select 'about Gnome',
it indicates version 2.4.0, but what does this have to do
with 'gtk2' or 'gtk+' ?  What is 'Pango' ?  What is 'Glib' ?

:-|  Chuck

Gnome uses GTK+ (Gimp Tool Kit), GTK+2 uses Pango (layout and
rendering of internationalized text) and ATK (Accessibility Tool Kit)
and Glib (the lowlevel core library).

You don't need to upgrade them, to use Bluefish. But what you need to
install is libpcre, it should be on CD2 of Slackware 9.1

Made a little search ...  ./l/pcre-4.4-i486-1.tgz

Thanks,Henning Nielsen Lund:

I found:


So, I think that I have everything necessary to run Bluefish.

Thanks everyone.

But you could upgrade to the newest version:

Glib-2.4.0 --> Pango-1.4.0 --> GTK+-2.4.0

Howdy, Everyone:

I have found an application that I want to try; Bluefish.

The documentation for Bluefish says that it requires 'gtk2'.
"It requires gtk2 <>, libpcre
<> and (optional) libaspell
<> for spell checking and (also
optional) gnome-vfs <> for remote files."

I found this mail list at, but there seems to
be references only to 'gtk+'.

How do I obtain 'gtk2' ?
