Hi I am struggling with this, been trying to install on mingw64 for a week.

Anyone had any joy recently?
various issues tried compiling one by one and glib fails with symbols error

I've been working on a repository that takes all the work needed to
install Gtk3 on different platforms and put it into one repository (I'm
also working on making .dmg and .msi installers --- these work but have
a couple cases I need to address):


The file you'll want to use for MSYS2/MINGW is

and what you want to do is add it to be loaded automatically via the
PERL5OPT environment variable

    export PERL5OPT="-Ipath/to/perl-gtk3-starter-basic/maint -MEUMMnosearch"
    cpanm Gtk3

What this module file does is detect when it being run under an
ExtUtils::MakeMaker installation and then run some hacks around the
arguments and build so that EU::MM knows where to find libraries and
generates a file that allows one XS module to link with another (the
comments in explain what I'm doing).

Ideally this would be fixed upstream in ExtUtils::MakeMaker, but I have
not had time to see what I can do.

Hope that helps.

P.S. The script in there also handles the same thing in a
self-contained way. See the commands listed under the "run:" keys in
for how to use that.

Hello everybody,

I have created a little tutorial about perl-Gtk3 and Windows/MSys2.
Especially I show there, how to create an installer for your perl-Gtk3
application. Perhaps this little How-To is helpful for some people.

You can find the files on
