Version gtk

Hi everybody,
I checked version of gtk and result is:

gtk2-2.18.6-0.1.3.x86_64

My gtk version is 2.18, is it right? If right, how to update to GTK+ 2.2 or later?
My OS is openSUSE 11.2, KDE 4.4.
Thanks for reading

The question really would be why? As I suspect this will include a lot of other dependencies to unravel. But if you so wish to look on obs software.opensuse.org: Search Results your best bet will probably be one of the gnome stable branches but you will be pretty much on your own if it all breaks.

The best solution would be to upgrade the OS rather than just a small component, certainly with such a lib that so many other packages will depend on.

I’m interested in version of GTK because as SUN said that “System Look And Feel for Linux is GTK if version is GTK+ 2.2 or later”. But in my system, System Look And Feel for Linux is Metal, not GTK

Agreed, and it appears that OpenSUSE 11.3 has this already. From my system:

It really was a rhetorical question, which makes me even more inclined to suggest an OS upgrade over a lib upgrade.

Put it this way you may well get away with it but for a cosmetic change you’re prepared do an architectural one as well. Just because I wanted blue walls wouldn’t be enough of a reason to go around re-arranging the structure. YMMV and for that it seems OBS can do it as for the out come I wouldn’t like to guess(I also suspect a java production environment so that would rule me out with common sense).

Thanks for help,
I’ll install OS 11.3 in near future :slight_smile:

It (the oracle web page) says version of gtk+ 2.2 or higher and not 2.20 or
higher, your current version 2.18 already fullfills that 2.18 > 2.2 !!

So this is most likely not your problem (esp. if you keep in mind how old
this behaviour is and that nobody knews when it was introducced in java that
something like a version gtk+ 2.20 will ever exist).

Is your java code something you programmed yourself? Then you should
consider adding explicit statements for changing the theme in the code to
the gtk style.

Otherwise are you sure that sun/oracle java is in use and not openjdk (which
differs in its behaviour slightly from the proprietary version)?
