yeah, I meant libglibmm-2.4-dev.

Thanks. I want to try new IT2006, but without gtkmm it is useless to me.

I was trying to build libgtkmm-2.4 myself at first by downloading
libgtkmm-2.4 (2.4.10-1) sources and applying Debian patch 
(gtkmm2.4_2.4.10-1.diff) from

But compilation fails:

Hmm, that's interesting. How would I know if it is your package or not?
I searched maemo repository and am pretty sure apt-get picks up packages
from here:


Package: libgtkmm-2.4-dev
Priority: optional
Section: libdevel
Installed-Size: 5620
Maintainer: Bradley Bell <btb at debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Source: gtkmm2.4
Version: 2.4.10-1

Sounds like both you and Bradley are trying to get this issue resolved?
