Hi.

I installed gtk-2.2.4-sol7-sparc-local.gz from www.sunfreeware.com and expected to find gtk-config in /usr/local/bin.  It isn't there.  What do I need to install to get gtk-config?

Thanks.

From the pkgadd man page....

 -R root_path
           Define the full path name of a directory to use as the
           root_path.  All files, including package system infor-
           mation files, are relocated to a directory tree start-
           ing  in  the specified root_path. The root_path may be
           specified when installing to a client  from  a  server
           (for example, /export/root/client1).


This should do the trick.

pkgadd -R /usr/local -d name_of_pkg_file

There wasn't a gtk+-devel on sunfreeware, but there was a source code tar.  Close enough.

I'm having the exact problem this person's having, only I can't find a link to the gtk devel package ANYWHERE.  Does ANYONE have a working, current link to where I might find this?  Going mad here...thanks...

I finally found my own answer, but it's kind of tricky, as the answer isn't readily apparent from the sunfreeware site.

The link to older gtk+ packages (which contain gtk-config) is here:

ftp://sunfreeware.secsup.org/pub/solaris/freeware/sparc/7/

(Substitute your favorite sunfreeware mirror for "sunfreeware.secsup.org", which happens to be my choice.)

The one I chose was gtk+1.2.10.sol7.sparc-local.gz, which I then installed on my Solaris 7 box.  Presto, all apps complaining that they couldn't find gtk-config were happy.
