I download and try to compile the source code for GTK2:
sudo apt-get build-dep libgtk2.0-0 sudo apt-get source libgtk2.0-0 cd gtk+2.0-2.24.6/ ./configure --prefix=/usr make
And I get an error:
In file included from gtkquery.c:26:0: gtkquery.h:31:2: error: #error "gtkfilechooserprivate.h is not supported API for general use"
Interestingly, I can compile GTK3 with no problems at all with the same steps above. I am using Oneiric.
If i try
debuild, I get thousands of
dpkg-source: error: cannot represent change to gtk+2.0-2.24.6/something/something: binary file contents changed
