Re: Gtk3 on Windows

I'm guessing this is both Strawberry Perl + GTK+3 (C libs) + Gtk3
(Perl libs), not just GTK+3 and Gtk3 that you drop on top of an
existing Strawberry Perl install?

In other words, this would replace an existing Strawberry Perl install?

Hi all.

As I mentioned previously, I was interested in posting a bounty to "make
stuff compile" on Windows. I've done this, and the developer has given me
binaries, patches, and detailed build instructions :)

So now I'm happy to announce the 1st version of Gtk3-Perl support on
Windows. It's based on the latest version of Strawberry Perl & Gtk-3.14.3,
and has a bunch of other things I needed built which I knew would be
difficult ( DBD::ODBC ). A 150MB binary is available at:

There are a couple of visual issues. Lots of icons don't render ( using
stock names ), but *some* do. There is even a 'broken icon' thing for the
little arrow in combo boxes, which looks bad. Also the default Gtk3 theme
which is now included across all platforms and which I was getting excited
about doesn't really look the same as on Linux. It's on off-colour which I'm
"not so excited" about, and things ... hmmm ... it's hard to describe ...
but it's not the same as on Linux. Anyway I assume most these things are
relatively easily fixable - I'm just throwing it out there in case someone
can immediately say "oh yeah this is because of xyz".

As time permits, I'll upload his very good documentation, and everything
else involved. At this point, I'm concentrating on repeating his process, so
we can continue to build later versions.

If people want to test and report issues back to the list, the guy has
offered to support any build-related issues for a reasonable period of time.
