The goal of Developing Linux Applications is to provide a handbook for developers who are moving to the Linux platform. Linux Application Development covers the GTK+ library including GLIB and GDK using C. You'll find information covered no place else--information that Linux developers need in one comprehensive development book. All of the applications and code the author developed for the title have been released under the GPL.

In Developing Linux Applications with GTK+ and GDK, Eric Harlow provides a comprehensive explanation of how to program with the GIMP Toolkit (GTK+) and the Graphics Drawing Kit (GDK). These tools dramatically ease the process of building graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for Linux applications.
Harlow takes a didactic approach to his subject, revealing its details one at a time with a careful explanation of each. He first explains how to build a plain, one-window application and then shows how to enhance it with the help of event handlers, additional GTK+ widgets, and some little-used interface elements. He presents complete examples to illustrate concepts, including a calculator and simple word processing application. Along the way, he does a great job of clearing up often confusing tasks, like creating menu bars and managing layouts.
Before wrapping up, Harlow explains the GDK, which you can use to create custom graphical elements. In a particularly grin-inducing section, he reveals how to write a version of the classic arcade game Defender with the help of the GDK. There's also a segment on creating your own widgets, so you can craft a customized yet consistent look for the programs you create. --David WallAbout the Author:
