This explains how to install Gtk2Hs on Macs using the native [http://www.gtk-osx.org/ GTK+ OS X Framework], a port of GTK+ to the Mac that does '''not''' depend on X11, and hence, is better integrated into the Mac desktop - i.e., menus actually appear in the menu bar, where they belong. It also avoids the often tedious installation of GTK+ via MacPorts. However, it misses support for optional Gtk2Hs packages that are currently not supported by the [http://www.gtk-osx.org/ GTK+ OS X Framework], most notably support for Glade. It does include support for Cairo, though.
+
== Installation Notes ==
 
Here is how to install the library:
 
# Download and install [http://www.gtk-osx.org/ GTK+ OS X Framework] (this uses the standard Mac package installer).
 
# Install [http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/ pkg-config], either by compiling it from source or via MacPorts.
 
# Download and unpack the Gtk2Hs tar ball from the [http://www.haskell.org/gtk2hs/downloads/ Gtk2Hs download page] (I tested 0.10.0).
 
# Configure with (you may want to remove the two backslashes and put everything on one line)
 
env PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/Library/Frameworks/Cairo.framework/Resources/dev/lib/pkgconfig:\
 
/Library/Frameworks/GLib.framework/Resources/dev/lib/pkgconfig:\
 
/Library/Frameworks/Gtk.framework/Resources/dev/lib/pkgconfig ./configure --disable-gio
 
# Build with
 
make
 
# Install (to <tt>/usr/local/</tt> unless a <tt>--prefix</tt> option was passed to <tt>configure</tt>) with
 
sudo make install
 
 
The library is now registered with the package database of the GHC you used for compiling.
 
 
NB: Thanks to Ross Mellgren for his post on the gtk2hs-users list that outlined the use of <tt>PKG_CONFIG_PATH</tt>.
 
 
==== Article as of Mid 2008 ====
 
Installing Gtk2Hs on Mac requires some finesse, at least until Haskell Libary Platform is built or ghc-6.8.3 is
 
available in macports. (These are planned for late 2008.)
 
 
* Install [http://macports.org MacPorts]
 
* Install dependencies:
 
sudo port instll glade3 libglade2 gstreamer gst-plugins-base gtksourceview cairo librsvg gtkglext firefox
 
* Update PKG_CONFIG_PATH (for libraries)
 
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig
 
* Update ghc to use macports libs: Edit your main <tt>ghc</tt> driver program and change the last line to:
 
exec $GHCBIN $TOPDIROPT ${1+"$@"} -L/opt/local/lib -I/opt/local/include
 
* Download Gtk2Hs following instructions at [http://www.haskell.org/gtk2hs/downloads/ Gtk2Hs Download page]
 
* Check configuration:
 
./configure --enable-docs --enable-profiling
 
 
...
 
   
**************************************************
+
See [[Gtk2Hs/Installation]].
* Configuration completed successfully.
 
*
 
* The following packages will be built:
 
*
 
* glib : yes
 
* gtk : yes
 
* glade : yes
 
* cairo : yes
 
* svgcairo : yes
 
* gtkglext : yes
 
* gconf : yes
 
* sourceview : yes
 
* mozembed : yes
 
* soegtk : yes
 
* gnomevfs : yes
 
* gstreamer : yes
 
* documentation : yes
 
*
 
* Now do "(g)make" followed by "(g)make install"
 
**************************************************
 
* Build and Install:
 
make
 
sudo make install
 
==== Recent experiences ====
 
I successfully installed the latest version on Mac OS 10.5 by:
 
* Installing Macports.
 
* <tt>sudo port install ghc</tt>
 
* <tt>sudo port install gtk2hs</tt> - which does not complete successfully. It does however, install the appropriate dependencies. Note that there are so many, you may need to install a couple of times due to time outs etc.. The build of Gtk2HS will fail, but that is ok - continue as below.
 
* Remove the build directory under <tt>/opt/.../build/gtk2hs</tt>
 
* Download Gtk2Hs via darcs as per [http://haskell.org/gtk2hs/development/#darcs the gtk2hs download instructions]
 
* do a <tt>sudo port install automake</tt>
 
* do a <tt>sudo port install alex</tt>
 
* do a <tt>sudo port install happy</tt> (Note this also fails and must be built from source. See the [[Happy]] page for details.)
 
* Follow the build instructions on the [http://haskell.org/gtk2hs/development/#darcs the gtk2hs download page]. I would suggest using <tt>./configure --prefix=/opt/local</tt> to get it in the same place as ports - personal preference though.
 
Good luck - as usual, your mileage may vary.
