    GTK+ fails to install

    Ubuntu 11.04
    Code::Blocks 10.05

    Installed codeblocks and GTK using synaptic. Opened a GTK template project and it failed to compile. Problem is that GTK when installing doesnt register its include paths with codeblocks, and codeblocks seems oblivious to newly installed libraries.

    Other than adding dozens of additional include and link paths to the settings, is there a way to get codeblocks to recognize the GTK libraries. I'm assuming it will have this issue with every other library I install, such as libwebcam etc. and i really dont want to have to manually add, in addition to guessing what to add, every new path.

    Sad to say, but that's kinda the way it works... Do it right and you only have to do it once...

    Only under linux apparently. I'm beginning to see why Microsoft can hold market share against a free OS

    Not having used Code::Blocks before.. But one would think it should be possible to get it to use gtk-config or pkg-config to avoid having to add paths and libraries manually?
    And visual studio isn't any different. You still have to add search paths and libraries yourself most of the time.

    Yes, this is possible to do under Code::Blocks/Linux for wxWidgets; so, it should work for GTK.

    Closest directions I could find. NOTE: You must use the correct tick marks.
