Thanks Jon and Shantanu - I managed to get gtk on and the application now
seems to find everything.

It doesn't do anything and thats because I based the starting thread code on
what I know of ms.net and so I'm guessing it's

How did you guys learn this ? The docs are well non existant as far as do
you use glade or something else or art? Maybe it will help if I tell you I
want to develop a gui that doesn't conform to any present standards but must
run inside gnome.

thanks a lot
