atkmm 2.36.3
atkmm Reference Manual


atkmm is the official C++ interface for the ATK accessibility toolkit library.

Basic usage

Include the atkmm header:

#include <atkmm.h>

This includes every header installed by atkmm, so can slow down compilation, but suffices for this simple example. Assuming that your program source file is, compile it with:

g++ -o program `pkg-config --cflags --libs atkmm-2.36`

If your version of g++ is not C++17-compliant by default, add the -std=c++17 option.

If you use Meson, include the following in

atkmm_dep = dependency('atkmm-2.36')
program_name = 'program'
cpp_sources = [ '' ]
dependencies: [ atkmm_dep ]

Alternatively, if using autoconf, use the following in

PKG_CHECK_MODULES([ATKMM], [atkmm-2.36])

Then use the generated ATKMM_CFLAGS and ATKMM_LIBS variables in the project files. For example:

program_LDADD = $(ATKMM_LIBS)
