Hey! Could someone package the latest GTK+? The next version of the Gimp is just about ready to come out and it requires GTK+ >= 2.10.13. Also I believe that pangocairo needs to be compiled in. It would be nice to have this ready before Gimp 2.4 comes out so that it will be really easy to upgrade to the next sweet version. I don't have time to compile this right now so could someone do it for me? Thanks!

Last time the gtk2  on 5.8 was upgraded dependency hell was unleashed. I really don't like the idea of anyone trying to replace the default Slack gtk2 package, as it goes wrong time and time again. IMO there is no app (not even the gimp) that justifies this.

Maybe it's time for an unsupported repo... Wink

Could someone build it for VL 5.9? I think 5.9 should have all the gtk apps built against the latest version of gtk anyway.

Heck no! IMO 5.9 should come with the default slack package, which is 2.10.13. This because slack packages of gtk are very good, and to make sure slack packages that need gtk will work on VL.

gimp 2,4 can be built on gtk 2.10.13, which is on the pseudo vec (5.9). I am running 2.4rc1 and its rock stable. I can send you a package of it if you want to. Tongue

No that's fine, thanks though. I guess I didn't see that VL5.9 had the latest. Thanks!
