README for GDK-DirectFB
------------------------
This is a developers snapshot of a GDK backend based on DirectFB.
It requires GTK+ version 2.0 (see http://www.gtk.org/) and DirectFB
(see http://www.directfb.org/).
This is the GDK backend that allows GTK to work on top of DirectFB.

DirectFB is a hardware abstraction layer on top of the Linux
frame buffer that provides drawing functions, a window stack and
support for input devices. The code you find here is a backend for
GDK, the drawing kit used by GTK+.
To give it a try, you first need DirectFB (at least version 0.9.17)
available from http://www.directfb.org/. Then you need to get your
hands on a recent version of GTK+-2.0. The latest release (gtk+-2.8.10)
should work.
Here are urls for the current for all the source needed to build the current latest gtk release
ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v2.8/atk-1.10.3.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v2.8/glib-2.8.5.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v2.8/pango-1.10.2.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v2.8/gtk+-2.8.10.tar.gz
If you don't have tiff i.e stock debian is a the url.
ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff/tiff-3.8.0.tar.gz
The default build will fail without it.
You also need the latest version of cairo from CVS it contains
support for a DirectFB backend and should be avialable in the next
cairo release.
cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/cairo co cairo
Alternatively checkout GTK+ from CVS. Place this
directory into the gdk subdirectory of your GTK+ tree and rename it
to directfb. Then change to the toplevel GTK+ directory and apply
gtk-directfb.patch there is now a mkpatch shell script which should
correctly automate creating the directfb target via:
./mkpatch apply
cd ../../; make && make install
If this fails the older instructions are still available. Note that several
file must be regenerated with the auto tools.
patch -p0 < gdk/directfb/gtk-directfb.patch
Regenerate the configure script and the Makefiles by calling automake
and autoconf. Then rebuild GTK+ using the '--with-gdktarget=directfb'
configure option.
Alternatively you can download a version of GTK+ that includes the
DirectFB GDK backend and has the patches already applied, see
http://www.directfb.org/download/GTK+-DirectFB/
As DirectFB provides drawing functions, a windowing stack and manages
input devices, this is a lightweight GDK port. Some parts of GDK
