If you want to hack on the GTK+ project, you'll need to have
the following packages installed:
- GNU autoconf 2.52
- GNU automake 1.4
- GNU libtool 1.4
- indent (GNU indent 1.9.1 is known good)
- GNU gettext 10.40
- GNU autoconf 2.54
- GNU automake 1.7
- GNU libtool 1.4
- indent (GNU indent 1.9.1 is known good)
- GNU gettext 10.40
These should be available by ftp from ftp.gnu.org or any of the
fine GNU mirrors. Beta software can be found at alpha.gnu.org.
In order to get CVS gtk+ installed on your system, you need to have
the most recent CVS version of glib, pango, and atk installed as well.
Up-to-date instructions about developing GNOME applications and libraries
can be found here:
http://developer.gnome.org
including information about using Subversion with GNOME:

In order to get SVN gtk+ installed on your system, you need to have
the most recent SVN versions of glib, pango, and atk installed as well.
The installation process of these libraries is similar to that of gtk+, but
needs to be fulfilled prior to installation of gtk+.
To compile a CVS version of gtk+ on your system, you will need to take
If at all possible, please use SVN to get the latest development version of
gtk+ and glib. You can do the following to get glib and gtk+ from SVN:
$ svn checkout http://svn.gnome.org/svn/glib/trunk glib
$ svn checkout http://svn.gnome.org/svn/pango/trunk pango
$ svn checkout http://svn.gnome.org/svn/atk/trunk atk
$ svn checkout http://svn.gnome.org/svn/gtk+/trunk gtk+
To compile the SVN version of gtk+ on your system, you will need to take
several steps to setup the tree for compilation. You can do all these
steps at once by running:
cvsroot/gtk+# ./autogen.sh
gtk+$ ./autogen.sh
Basically this does the following for you:
cvsroot/gtk+# aclocal; automake; autoconf
gtk+$ aclocal; automake; autoconf
The above commands create the "configure" script. Now you
can run the configure script in cvsroot/gtk+ to create all
the Makefiles.
The above commands create the `configure' script. Now you
run the `configure' script in `gtk+/' to create all Makefiles.
More information about that in `INSTALL'.
Before running autogen.sh or configure, make sure you have libtool
Before running `autogen.sh' or `configure', make sure you have libtool
in your path.
Note that autogen.sh runs configure for you. If you wish to pass
options like --prefix=/usr to configure you can give those options
to autogen.sh and they will be passed on to configure.
If at all possible, please use CVS to get the latest development version of
gtk+ and glib. You can do the following to get glib and gtk+ from cvs:
$ export CVSROOT=':pserver:anonymous@cvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome'
$ cvs login
(there is no password, just hit return)
$ cvs -z3 checkout glib
$ cvs -z3 checkout pango
$ cvs -z3 checkout atk
$ cvs -z3 checkout gtk+
options like `--prefix=/usr' to `configure' you can give those options
to `autogen.sh' and they will be passed on to `configure'.
For information about submitting patches and committing changes
to CVS, see the README and README.cvs-commits files. In particular,
don't, under any circumstances, commit anything to CVS before
reading and understanding README.cvs-commmits.

GTK+ is part of the GNOME CVS repository. At the current time, any
GTK+ is part of the GNOME Subversion repository. At the current time, any
person with write access to the GNOME repository, can make changes to
GTK+. This is a good thing, in that it encourages many people to work
on GTK+, and progress can be made quickly. However, GTK+ is a fairly
