GTK libraries

Thunderbird 2.0.x and Firefox 2.0.x use the new open-source windowing toolkit Gnome 2.6 GTK+ libraries on the following HP-UX 11i versions:

    • 11i v1 (11.11)
    • 11i v2 (11.23)
    • 11i v3 (11.31)
  • HP Itanium®:
    • 11i v2 (11.23)
    • 11i v3 (11.31)

You must install the windowing toolkit before installing Thunderbird 2.0.x and Firefox 2.0.x.   It is not necessary to install the GTK+ 2.6.8 depot to run either Firefox or Mozilla.

The GTK+ 2.6.8 release provides support only for Thunderbird 2.0.x and Firefox 2.0.x on HP-UX 11i.   This product is not supported outside Thunderbird 2.0.x and Firefox 2.0.x; therefore, it is not recommended for mission-critical or production environments.
