The old gtk-perl is not just out of date, its usage is deprecated. gtk+2 has
been out for a while, and the bindings are different.
I suspect that the problem you're having is that you're running gtk-perl
(i.e., version 1) with the Gtk+2 libraries, and gtk-perl can't find its
Compiling the module from source isn't too hard, though. If you have the
Camel book, there's a hand-holding walk-through for how to do it in there.
gtk2-perl is available at http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/
(As an aside: Are there any plans to get gtk2-perl onto CPAN? I suspect Suse

modules are way easier to install; probably we'd see much less usage of
gtk-perl if it wasn't the only module on CPAN; think of the lazy coders. :)
