gtk application without x server?


Hi,Is it possible to have a GTK application with windows that are not
visible on the screen that can run without an X server? Ie the windows
have their content rendered off-screen (in memory) and you can call
window functions on it.I tried creating a window and called gtk_widget_hide() on it, but it doesn't work.Thanks,-Adnan._______________________________________________

No, GTK needs a display connection to work.

You can use some of the lower level libraries like glib, gobject,
gdkpixbuf etc without an X connection.
