    Default Build cairo-dock from src - underfined references to GTK_WIDGET_REALIZED, GTK_WIDGET_NO_WINDOW

    Since I could not find the cairo dock package on packman for openSUSE 11.3, I decided to build the package from source.

    I ran the configure script first and then gave a build using make.

    I get undefined reference errors for the following symbols while linking.

    Code:
    /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.5/../../../../lib64/libgtkglext-x11-1.0.so: undefined reference to `GTK_WIDGET_REALIZED'
    /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.5/../../../../lib64/libgtkglext-x11-1.0.so: undefined reference to `GTK_WIDGET_NO_WINDOW'
    I searched on google for this error message, but couldn't find any useful pointers other than the fact that these symbols could be deprecated. If that is the case I should have got a compiler error, why just a linker error ?

    Any pointers would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Thumbs up Re: Build cairo-dock from src - underfined references to GTK_WIDGET_REALIZED, GTK_WIDGET_NO_WINDOW

    Hello people.

    I had the same problem with cairo-dock in my brand new openSuse 11.3.
    Well, i solved it uninstalling the original library gtkglext-1.2.0-182.1, and instead I had to download an old version from here: RPM Search OpenSuSE gtkglext-devel-1.2.0-141.37.x86_64.rpm.
    Once done, I did run the commands:
    ./configure
    ./make
    sudo make install

    And it works like a charm!

    I hope I help you.

    Bye.

    Thanks... Installing gtkglext and gtkglext-devel RPMs for 1.2.0-141.37 version (from rpm.pbone.net search results) did the trick....

    Though I ended up with compilation errors for one of the plugins....
    It was a one line change in C-code to fix it - so finally have got my cairo-dock running.... AWN is nowhere close to cairo-dock

    Also switched my DE from KDE to gnome with gnome-shell - so really useful with the dock to see my list of running apps easily...

    Just if anyone else faced a similar issue as me:

    In the file mail/src/cd-mail-applet-etpan.c and line number 266

    Change this sequence of lines:
    Code:
    	if( !pUpdatedMailAccount ) return TRUE;
    	CD_APPLET_ENTER;
     	CairoDockModuleInstance *myApplet = pUpdatedMailAccount->pAppletInstance;
    to:
    Code:
    	if( !pUpdatedMailAccount ) return TRUE;
     	CairoDockModuleInstance *myApplet = pUpdatedMailAccount->pAppletInstance;
    	CD_APPLET_ENTER;
    Basically nothing but swapping the two lines....

    I also had one more problem - my /usr/lib/libGL.so was getting picked up by the linker for some reason although I had the 64-bit libraries in /usr/lib64 directory. I then had to replace all instances of -L/usr/lib to -L/usr/lib64 in all the makefiles of the cairo dock plugins.... There could have been an easier fix - but I didn't have the patience to figure that out - as a grep | cut | xargs vim and a search and replace in vim - was easier for me
