Looks like the web page is down
I ryesterday have undergone the process of converting the encoding on my system for international characters from iso 8859-1 (which limits me to characters in English and western Europian languages) to UTF-8 (Unicode; which allows character encodings in just about every single written language that people have conceived in the history of mankind).
I noticed that GTK 1.2.x had no support for utf-8; when I set the encoding to UTF-8, GTK 1.2.x was still encoding directory names as if they were in iso 8859-1; and, in fact, eould crash when trying to enter a UTF-8 encoded directory name.
After doing a web search on UTF-8 and GTK, I found out that the development branch of GTK has UTF-8 support. Alas, www.gtk.org has been down all day, and, looking at the freshmeat record, there does not appear to be any development with GTK since last summer.
What is the current status of GTK and UTF-8 support?
I love GTK. Butt many others think that it does not look good... Why? Because in most (all?) distributios default GTK theme is simple and not to attractive. Well we can change it to very beautyfull ones, butt many people dont know that. When they use other desktop than Gnome, they do not open Gnome-control center and do not know that this is possible. Thats all 8)

a couple of things :
the tarballs generally install to /usr/local/
whereas (for example) redhat installs stuff under
/usr. configure is probably still looking at the
one in /usr.
to fix this: rm /usr/bin/gtk-config
make sure /usr/local/bin is on your
and /usr/local/lib is in
before running configure you should be able to
type `gtk-config --version` and it should return
with the version number you just installed.
alternately, you can reinstall the gtk pacakges
and glib under /usr by doing
'configure --prefix=/usr' but you have to
remember to do that for all the pacakges and it
seems like most packages want to go under /usr/local/.
hope it helps
Not so fast!
Yes, GTK+ is great and the development is going at good speed, but this is 1.2.7, not 1.2.27 (as appeared in the news page).
Can't get programs to recognize GTK+-1.2.0
I resently d/l the Enlightenment WM v0.15.5 and I wanted the e-conf program, but it needs gnome-libs so i d/l that when I tried to compile it, it said that i needed gtk+-1.2.0, which i have. It gave me an error about the libraries not matching the header files. Headers= v1.0.2 and Libraries=v1.2.0
What should I do to resolve the problem?
The last few releases of GTK/GLIB totally refuse to work on my Solaris boxes. I get segmentation faults each time.
