lost files


I am trying to determine how to find the following files, they are not
presently on my machine and ws wondering if they are downloadable.

libgdk.a
libglib.a
libgmodule.a
libgtk.a

I am not a programmer, and have very limited knowledge of the UNIX/LINUX
environment,, so basically if your mom wold not understand what you are
writing neither would I. I am just trying to get a program to work, and
it needs to find these files.

Thanks

James Borrone

Those are the static libraries for gtk and glib. You can find these
files on /usr/lib directory since linux distros bundled already these
packages and that if you installed the gtk.You can create these files by downloading the gtk source atwww.gtk.orgOn 12/8/05,James Borrone<> wrote:I am trying to determine how to find the following files, they are notpresently on my machine and ws wondering if they are downloadable.libgdk.alibglib.alibgmodule.alibgtk.aI am not a programmer, and have very limited knowledge of the UNIX/LINUXenvironment,, so basically if your mom wold not understand what you arewriting neither would I.  I am just trying to get a program to work, andit needs to find these files.ThanksJames Borrone_______________________________________________gtk-list mailing listgtk-l***@*nome.orghttp://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gtk-list_______________________________________________

lib*.a are static libraries which are useful when building a
statistically linked executable. They are not used at run time. Many
distribs ship them in dev packages.
