Gtk3 Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies Gtk3-0.038.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Perl bindings to the 3.x series of the gtk+ toolkit.  This module allows you to
write graphical user interfaces in a Perlish and object-oriented way, freeing
you from the casting and memory management in C, yet remaining very close in
spirit to original API.


To install this module type the following:

   perl Makefile.PL
   make test
   make install


Gtk3 needs this C library:

  gtk+-3.0 >= 3.0.0

and these Perl modules:

  Glib::Object::Introspection >= 0.002

Web bug submission via's bugzilla:

Please do not contact any of the maintainers directly unless they ask you to.
The first point of contact for questions/problems/issues should always be the
mailing list.


For help with problems, please contact the mailing list (above).  If you
already know you have a bug, please file it with one of the bug trackers
below.  With any problems and/or bug reports, it's always helpful for the
developers to have the following information:

- A small script that demonstrates the problem; this is not required, however,
  it will get your issue looked at much faster than a description of the
  problem alone.
- Version of Perl (perl -v)
- Versions of Gtk2-Perl modules (Glib/Gtk2/Pango/Cairo)
- Optional, but nice to have: versions of GTK+ libraries on your system
  (libglib, libgtk+, libpango, libcairo, etc.)

There are multiple project bug trackers, please choose the one you are most
comfortable with using and/or already have an account for.

Request Tracker:
- submitting bugs via the Web (requires a PAUSE account/Bitcard):
- submitting bugs via e-mail (open to anyone with e-mail):
  bug-Gtk3 [at]

Gnome's bugtracker:
- report bugs to the 'gnome-perl' product (requires login)


You can send us patches by...
- E-mailing it to the mailing list (above); please use a pastebin service of
  some kind for longer patchfiles (over say 20k in size).
- Those with Git ID's can push trivial patches to git directly; if
  you're not sure what a trivial patch is, please ask first on the mailing
  list prior to pushing your commit.


Assuming you already have the 'git' command installed on your system, you can
use the 'git://' protocol:

 git clone git://

Or, read-only access via HTTP:

 git clone

To update an existing clone of the source:

 git pull

Most Linux distros package the 'git' command in a package called either 'git'
or 'git-core'.
