I'm almost a complete newbie with linux and GTK and I'm working my way through the online reference manual (https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/ch01s05.html
). I had no problems with the simple examples but as soon as I started through the more complex ones, I'm lost because I can't build them.
The version 3, "application 1" example has 5 source files: main.c, exampleapp.c & .h, and exampleappwin.c &.h. There's a makefile.am and a zipped makefile.in. I can't figure out how to generate/extract a makefile from what's there and I can't "manually" (command line) figure out how to build this thing.
I'm working with the latest versions of Ubuntu and GTK.
