= About GTK+

from http://www.gtk.org/

GTK+ is a highly usable, feature rich toolkit for creating
graphical user interfaces which boasts cross platform
compatibility and an easy to use API. GTK+ it is written
in C, but has bindings to many other popular programming
languages such as C++, Python and C# among others. GTK+ is
licensed under the GNU LGPL 2.1 allowing development of

license fees or royalties.

= About GNOME

from About Us – GNOME

The GNOME project provides two things: The GNOME desktop
environment, an intuitive and attractive desktop for
users, and the GNOME development platform, an extensive
framework for building applications that integrate into
the rest of the desktop.


What is the easiest way to get all of ruby-gnome (the bindings available
above) installed? I assume that with

gem install gtk3

I would only get gtk3.

Sorry for the noobish question but I am still only slowly transitioning
into modern age. I have not even finished cleaning up all my old
ruby-gtk2 code yet either, just too many other things to do. :slight_smile:
