gtk-config man page

gtk-config — script to get information about the installed version of GTK+

Synopsis

gtk-config [--prefix[=DIR]] [--exec-prefix[=DIR]] [--version] [--libs] [--cflags]

Description

gtk-config is a tool that is used to configure to determine the compiler and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use GTK+. It is also used internally to the .m4 macros for GNU autoconf that are included with GTK+.

Options

gtk-config accepts the following options:

--version
Print the currently installed version of GTK+ on the standard output.
--libs
Print the linker flags that are necessary to link a GTK+ program.
--cflags
Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a GTK+ program.
--prefix=PREFIX
If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that GTK+ was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option is also used for the exec prefix if --exec-prefix was not specified. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.
--exec-prefix=PREFIX
If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation exec prefix that GTK+ was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.
