I've got together a tarball that contains the stuff needed to compile gtk-5250 on recent versions of gtk. Since my machine is pretty recent, the existing gtk-5250 stuff didn't work for me. My changes work, but there are color problems. The problem is that gdk_color_context_* functions are gone in recent versions of gtk. So I rewrote it using gdk_rgb_* functions instead. Performance seems to suck, though. I didn't make a Makefile for it, since I don't know autoconf. Instead I put together a little script that compiles it for you. This is required since new gtk uses pkgconfig, which current gnome-5250 doesn't have. I made some other changes that may or may not be needed, but I don't remember now (it's been a long night of reading/hacking). Get the tarball at:


Someone with new gtk please try this out. If you know gtk+-2.0 better than me maybe you can fix the color issue.
