PostPosted: Fri 14 Mar 2014, 14:56    Post_subject:  Vala gtk+ compiling problem  

All the little apps I written so far compile no problem so I thought it was time to try a gui program. I installed gtk+3-3.4.4 but when I try:

valac --pkg gtk+3-3.4.4 "gtk-app.vala" -o gtk-app

I get this error:

error: Package `gtk+3-3.4.4' not found in specified Vala API directories or GObject-Introspection GIR directories

I guess I'm missing something or it's in the wrong place or not in the path... can anyone help please?

TIA

Paul

Don't expect much help here. Maybe there is a better forum to get basic information? I tried that programming language on Fatdog64 but it just flaked out at the end of the project wizard. Puff-it was gone. I guess that is what a wizard is supposed do. Including Linux ones-perhaps in a combinatorial explosion of command line options. It is always a good idea to disappear after you have led someone up the garden path.

How did you install that GTK? And why? I guess your Puppy doesn't include GTK3?
I think there is a long-running vala programming thread - maybe try posting in it.

Thanks for the replies... I think I've given up on this (for now at least) although I'm still using Vala on a Mint machine.

Cheers
