Setting up ruby-gnome2 for win32 with new Gtk+ and Glade releases

There are quite recent releases of Gtk+ and Glade for win32 up on

http://gladewin32.sourceforge.net/

Does anyone have any experience using them with
ruby-gnome2-0.16.0-1-i386-mswin32.exe? That exe was released over one
and a half years ago. Will we see a new release soon? Or are we
waiting for a One-Click-Installer built on msys?

AkitaOnRails has created an installer using Luis ruby one click
installer 3. Please check his website
[http://www.akitaonrails.com/2008/7/26/still-playing-with-ruby-on-windows]
and download the installer from
[http://www.akitaonrails.com/files/ruby_devkit-186-p279.msi]

This installer come with msys and mingw so that you can compile your own
native ruby gems if the gems doesn’t come with binary.

If you like to, you can compile the ruby-gnome your self. Please
download the gtk + gtk-dev from the gtk
website[http://www.gtk.org/download-windows.html], I will suggest the
bundle download
[http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/gtk+/2.12/gtk+-bundle-2.12.11.zip]
Extract it to c:\gtk, then add the windows environment Path [c:\gtk\bin]
Download the latest ruby-gnome trunk and follow the steps on wiki to
compile it. There are some file copying needed for the rcairo if you use
the latest rcairo(the version on the wiki is very old). You should able
to compile some of the ruby-gnome package(gtk, glib, gnomecanvas…etc).
If you like to have extrac package like the Gconf or the gtksourceview2,
you need to download the binary and library from the gnome ftp site
[http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/].(You can download each
package manually instead of using the bundle from the link I provided)
For the gstream, you need to download the binary and library from
gstream website[http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/pkg/windows/releases/].
However, for the library, they only provide .lib but for gcc, we need
lib
.a, so you may need other tool to convert the .lib to lib.a. Then
you should able to compile the gstreamer package.

This is very brief overview on how to compile it on windows. They might
be few glitch on the compilation.
