Provides automation of configuration needed for projects using pkg-config, such as GTK+ and gtkmm. Pkg-config utility outputs the necessary options needed to build a given package(s) that can be passed as compiler options.
Pkg-config support will set compiler and linker flags automatically that GCC needs to build selected packages - specifically includes, libraries, and some other GCC flags.
Project can be held in a version control system and even if the packages have been selected in Linux, pulling the project in Windows will automatically update the flags (file-system paths etc).
Pkg-config plugin configuration is now per-project configuration rather than a global configuration. Path to the pkg-config binary can be set per-project.
Used to select packages and set pkg-config configurations.
Find Pkg-config settings in project properties -> C/C++ Build -> Settings -> Pkg-config tab
Select packages that your project needs to build correctly. Under Advanced dialog you can set path to pkg-config utility and adjust the path with your custom parameters if you wish.
* Pkg-config utility installed
* Libraries you need (e.g. gtk+, gtkmm)
* For Windows: MinGW or Cygwin
* CDT 8.0 and Eclipse 3.7.x (Indigo) or newer
If you are having problems installing it is most probably because of not having CDT 8.0 or above.
Windows users: Do not install Gtk+ or Gtkmm in a path containing spaces, because pkg-config does not support spaces in paths.
