Please excuse me for asking such a common question. I am unable to
search the archive because it is being re-indexed.
I'm looking for a good book on GTK+ 2.0
We are porting an embedded GHS INTEGRITY application to an embedded
linux platform. I'm porting the UI task to GTK+ 2.0. For rapid
development I'm creating a version that runs on GNOME as well as one on
the embedded system that writes directly to the frame buffer. I need to
receive data on a POSIX messesage queue. This data is everything from
barcode data with which I'll fill in GtkEntry fields to proprietarty
screen descriptions with which I redraw the entire screen or do things
that don't affect the screen at all. So, I want to understand how to
convert those incoming messages to GTK/GDK/GLIB events and/or signals.
I can see all the pieces in the references and I can read code to see
how the libraries themselves achieve similar things. However, I'm
desperate for an overall understanding.
I've already got:
"Understanding the LINUX Kernel"
"Embedded LINUX System Design and Development"
I looked at:
"Gtk+ Programming in C" by Syd Logan but it appeared to cover GTK+ 1.2.
"Developing Linux Applications with GTK+ and GDK" by Eric Harlow was
published two years earlier.
"The Official GNOME 2 Developer's Guide" by Matthias Warkus is recent,
but I don't know how deeply it goes into POSIX and GtkFB
