Message1. widgets not appearing correctly with wxGTK
#4063
Posted by: berre 2004-05-07 21:09:38
Hi,

is just me or is it impossible to skin wxGTK applications? No matter what I do, all widgets appear as they are bare-bone X11 applications, no GTK widgets are in sight...

All apps builds correctly, no error messages, wxGTK is compiled and installed and I can't seem to find any information telling me how to do this... :(

Greatly appreciated if anybody can help!

(Using Debian sarge and wxGTK 2.4 btw.)

I have noticed the exact same thing on my config (debian sid, libwxgtk24).

I think it's because wxWidgets use GTK+ and not GTK2. The style of the applications is GTK, but the old one, not the current one. :-/

Hi!
Check wxWindow::SetThemeEnabled(bool b). Not sure but maybe this is the solution. Otherwise: You can compile wxWidgets with support for GTK2 instead of GTK+.

Thanks for the trick upcase :)))))

But I saw this in the wxWidgets help :
Dialogs, notebook pages and the status bar have this flag set to TRUE by default so that the default look and feel is simulated best.

So I think the SetThemeEnabled is activated by default and as we see it doesn't work well. I really think it's because it's compiled for GTK+ and not GTK2.

The problem : I think there's no debian package for wxGTK2 ?

Hi!
Quoting from the INSTALL file:
* The GTK+ 2 case
-----------------

wxGTK 2.4.2 has support for the new version 2.0.X of GTK+. This means
that wxGTK apps can now make use Unicode as the underlying encoding
for all text operations. This is a very fundamental change and will
need time to stabilize, so be careful. Anyways, after installing a
recent version of GTK+ 2.0, do this

> ./configure --with-gtk --enable-gtk2 --enable-unicode
> make
> su <type root password>
> make install
> ldconfig
> exit

If you are adventurous, you can install the FcConfig 2.0 package
and the Pango library from CVS (or a very recent snapshot from
the upcoming 1.2 series) and set do "export GDK_USE_XFT=1" so
that the display as well as the printing code will use render
using the same FreeType code even for Far Eastern encodings.
and
* GUI libraries
---------------
wxWindows/GTK requires the GTK+ library to be installed on your system. It has
to be a stable version, preferably version 1.2.10 (at least 1.2.3 is required,
1.2.7 is strongly recommended).

You can get the newest version of the GTK+ from the GTK homepage at:

  http://www.gtk.org

We also mirror GTK+ at my ftp site. You'll find information about downloading
at my homepage.
Good luck :)
