    Would like to try gtkdialog examples, but gtkdialog-0.8.3 will not install on ubuntu-16.04.
    Installer looking for gtk2, but ubuntu 16.04 uses gtk3.
    Is there a fix for this?

    I recently developed an interest in gtkdialog, spent time working with it. The main gripe I had was the relative scarcity of entry-level documentation and use case discussion.

    As I work with gtkdialog I document what I am doing and what I am finding out. As a consequence, I have new material on the topic to share.

    Will the programs created in linux with gtkdialog installed, also run on windows?? if so, what version of windows can it run on.

      Good question, but to be fact we really don’t know whether it should work on Windows or not, I think you should create and test it under Windows..

      Hello “hello”! :-)

      Yes it won’t work on any Linux distribution that doesn’t have gtkdialog installed, gtkdialog is a dependency to run gtkdialog programs, they can’t live without it.

      Thank you for your reply.
