Gnome app stack needs packaging

Asked by Dimitri John Ledkov

I dream of a day when the whole Gtk+/Gnome stack can be easily deployed in msi components such that I don't have to have a bundled copy of libs in each Gnome app i want to run on Windows e.g. evince & gedit.

Gnome needs packaging using this thing when it's done =)

Congrats on the first bug? =)

That's kind of the idea.

However, I'd probably classify this as "feature request" rather than "bug".

Congrats. :p

Just for completion sake, can you articulate what all the dependencies are (static or dynamic) to satisfy this type of thing.

Perhaps the example data for this could be constructive in ensuring we don't miss something (design-wise).

For the dependencies, you could look at the SuSE build server, which provides Windows binaries compiled with mingw:

Jernej Simončič thanks I'm already using that =) but i wasn't quite happy with those so I'm making a jhbuild modulest to create a different toolchain. Hopefully will start publishing soon on launchpad and then later on the opensuse buildservice.

=) but it would be greate to be able to cross-compile CoApp binaries & publish repositories.

Closing for now as I will keep an eye on CoApp =)
