How do you install a version of Gtk+ 2.x along side with Gtk+ 1.x without messing up the apps that use Gtk+ 1.x?
i think that you can install gtk2 normally along side 1.2.x i have both installed on my arch system. They are kept apart by how the directories are labelled. well at least i have not found any troubles with having both on my system.
as far as i know i don't think the 1.2 apps can use 2.0
I don't think you will mess gtk-1.x up because the two are so totally different. I have them installed side by side with no troubles. If you follow this: http://beyond.linuxfromscratch.org/view/cvs/x/gtk2.html then you'll be sweet.
yeah you can, but its a bit different. Goto gnome2's page and take alook at the garnome tool. It installs gnome2, gtk2 and all alongside of gtk1 and gnome1.xx. and, it compiles everything for you. So if you have 5 or 6 hours to burn, you can build it yourself.
