"GTK+ and Gnome are growing in popularity and for good reason.
GTK+ is a free GUI library released under the GPL and Gnome is
growing better and more stable by the day. GTK for those that do
not know is the Gimp Tool Kit and is a package of tools to allow
easy GUI development under X Windows."
"There is actually quite a bit of information available to learn
GTK+ or Gnome programming. One of the best ways is to read the
source of available programs. Since both Gnome and GTK+ are
released under the GPL the source for both is available. However,
many people (me included) do not like to read off a computer screen
or would rather have a reference book available to supplement
"This book attempts to explain the process of coding a Gnome
application using GTK+, the Gnome libraries and other GNU tools. It
does a good job but be warned, the text and the examples are not
for beginners! You must know C and you should be pretty
familiar with it. A bit of knowledge of GTK+ to begin with would
also be good."
