            Re: Message from the Owner
            This comment does not apply anymore. When starting on the development of OpenLDev, I was sure it was going to take a lot longer to reach the point where it was ready for production use. While the application is still in beta, it has the functionality needed by most C/C++ programmers.

            Re: default gtkmm project build did not work
            It will be fixed in version 0.4.1. Thanks! As for your "p.s.", that may very well be added in the future. For now, you can add libglademm-2.4 to the PKG_CHECK_MODULES line to include glade files.

            In the future, could you please direct bug reports to our SourceForge bug tracker at ( Thanks. - Andrew Krause

            default gtkmm project build did not work

            very fine ide, especially for gnome. better than anjuta. i'm sure that vs. 0.5 will also be very good, maybe better.

            little problem:

            my first test to make a gtkmm project produced errors. can't find this and that.

            so i compared the template with that of sysinfo (from the examples page).





            PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GTKMM, gtkmm-2.4,,exit)

            into from the template/gtkmm.tar solved the problem. now it works.


            p.s.: it would be fine to have an option for including glade-files or (better) have an included ide-builder.

            Re: How about autoconf/autobuild tools?
            Well, naming your firstborn might be going a little far, although my name is Andrew ... anyway. I have plans on doing more integration with standard tools very soon. And do not worry, my goal is to keep everything as easy as possible.

            If you have any more ideas, comments or bugs, feel free to post them to (

            How about autoconf/autobuild tools?
            This project looks great. If there was any chance that the gui could find an easy way (as in, easy for a c/c++ beginner to understand) to implement autoconf/autobuild etc., I'd name my firstborn after you.
