Portable GTK+

Just a thought, but wouldn't it be simpler to have a separate "App" for the GTK+ libraries which people can download and carry around, and which other portable apps can run from instead of having separate GTK+ copies for each App (I'm thinking Gaim and GIMP here).

yes, 4Mb isn't a lot of space, but it can make a difference.

just a though.

thanks for all the great apps John!

This isn't something I agree with doing, but I really do think this issue should get some consideration:

John will likely create a \common\ folder for libraries shared by apps in the PA Suite sometime soon.

Working on it...

I didn't have time for the 1.0 release of the suite. But I had a test release of Gaim up that did this. I'm planning on having the launchers support:

\PortableApps\CommonFiles\GTK

That way if there's no GTK within the app itself, it'll look there. Gaim and GIMP will have this added in. As will a couple other GTK-based apps I'm working on.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Oh no

Microsoft style! Run!
(I'm referring to the fact that some MS apps keep stuff in \Program Files\Common Files)
