Re: GTK frontend - New milestone reached

With the help of excellent groundwork and instructions from Davide, I have
successfully created a cdebconf-gtk udeb compiled against libraries
created from Alastair's gtk+2.0-directfb0 source package.
I've just uploaded a new version of gtk+2.0-directfb that includes -dev
and .deb packages. With these, it should be possible to build the frontend.
With that, the only major thing currently missing is the option to build
the frontend against official gtk+2.0-directfb0 library packages.
Alastair: can you give us a status update on this?
They haven't been fully tested yet, but I'd like comments and testing
please. The libgtk+2.0-directfb0.deb package puts the libraries into
/usr/lib/directfb so as to not conflict with gtk+ on a build system, and
-dev then depends on these. Ditto the includes are placed in
/usr/include/directfb/* ; the .pc files for pkgconfig reflect these
changes and should just work.
Comments particularly welcome on the locations/ paths, etc. they differ
from the normal tarball in order to not conflict with standard X gtk+
libraries; this I think is the least invasive and surprising place to put
them, but other suggestions welcome.
