MinGW is minimalist GNU for Windows.[1]

One lives in hope....


  1. building of relevant libaries
  2. building of GS itself

Setting up MinGW

A tutorial for how to set up a MinGW build environment.

Follow these instructions carefully [2]

Get these packages from here

  1. pkgconfig
  2. gettext
  3. glib2-2.18.2-1

Download Gnome binary packages from here. Under gtk+ there is a bundle that has several you need. These get installed in c:\MinGW\

and I'm currently stuck here. Running aclocal in the gnomesword directory appears to work, autoconf has an error error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_INTLTOOL
     If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
     See the Autoconf documentation.

and automake says

     cannot open < gnome-doc-utils.make: No such file or directory

configure then gets confused on

    line 2622: syntax error near unexpected token 'GNOME'

so for some reason it isn't actually calling pkg-config

Articles found so far

  2. (has good tutorial to set up MINGW compiling on windows
  3. (Order of commandline options for GCC is important)

Building of other GTK/Gnome projects


Other stuff

  1. Allows compiling and cross compiling of GTK applications
