Today was less of a coding day but more of a preparation day.

From tomorrow I am going to work on my next milestone of updating gtk+ library from gtk+2 to gtk+3.

What I found regarding setting up the development environment is that:

For compiling with gtk+2 we use something like “gcc $(pkg-config –cflags –libs gtk+-2.0)”.

And to compile with gtk+3 we just need to change that to gtk+-3.0. There is no need to uninstall gtk+2 from the system. Although we do need to have 3 installed on our system along with its development packages.

Here are some interesting reads that I need to follow:

Migrating from GTK+ 2.x to GTK+ 3
