Installing GTK+3.22

Post by apondeirews » Wed Aug 05, 2020 9:46 am

I am having issues with installing GTK+ 3.22 on my laptop.

At first I tried downloading GTK and all its dependencies from here.

I ran ./configure && make && sudo make install to install the libraries above, but that did not work. I had a lot of undefined references and icons were missing so I uninstalled all the libraries.

After that I tried installing GTK again and made sure that I have every dependency installed correctly (even sub-dependencies). This time however I ran ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && sudo make install to install the libraries because I was following this guide.

The above broke my system completely, I couldn't do anything so I had to resort to safe-mode and reinstall the old GTK available on the apt repositories.

My question is, how can I install GTK+ 3.22 and make sure it works properly?

I am using Debian 8.
