I've just installed Glade and when I tried to open a GTK2 project I

guidelines and it's clearer to me. I don't understand where that "3"
First: Glade has it's on versioning.
Second: Glade version is not equivialent to GTK version.
Third: Yeah, it's a PITA.
Here: Glade Version 3.8 (package glade3) is for GTK Version 2
IMHO either tack on a _gtk[2|3] (e.g glade3_gtk2) or make sure that the

Not so good for the image.
As openSUSE has a lot of people with great ideas, but apparently not so
many taking the initiative to start an editor and just fix stuff the way

referencing GTK+ 2 of course.. not 3).
