Scala and GTK+ Rungime on Windows XP SP2
« on: February 13, 2009, 08:18:37 PM »
Hello,hope someone can help me here[traded my new PSR-e413(!) for an old(?) PSR-1500 and  I do no regret it one byte !

I want to use SCALA but you need GTK+2 Runtime..I tried all possibilities.even older versions of Scala,GTK+ and no can do..

Thus with the latest version of Scala v 2.25s with GTK+ Runtime v2.14.7 I get "PROCEDURE entry point g-dgettext could not be located in the dynamic link library libglib-2.0.0-dll"

I did try to adding g-dgettext as well as libglib ...

As you install Scala you have 3 choices-tried them all with different versions of Scala and GTK+ ,I even used GTK development with binaries.  a)  installdir\bin   b) installdir\lib  and  c) installdir\   
Also tried using Scala in a subfolder of GTK+

Note that Megamid seems to be working(it comes with Scala)

Posted on the GTK+ forum but little response so far..I do suspect that crowd not be musically inclined to begin with..(???!!).

Main reason I want to use Scala is to retune all of the  PSR-1500 that is  based on the  freq 440Hz to the 528HZ one

Scala website is here at

And why do I want to be tuning to  528 Hz ?

Well go here

And to    better sound/video quality is available at:

Note: I am not  professional,just an old(!) beginner and thus time for music and out the politicos..

I'm not familiar with the programs you refer to, however, you can easily tune the keyboard to any frequency you wish. Merely press Function/Master Tune/Scale Tune and the tools are at your fingertips.

Hope this helps,

My problem with Scala is solved to a degree.It appears that there is a conflict between GTK+ libraries- as Scala is using it and the other program that I had  on my pc, LilyPond ,was also using GTK+ libraries

So I had no choice but to delete LilyPond if I  want to use Scala

Solution if you run Windows-put LilyPond on another pc(if you have one-not my case) or better run your pc on linux !

Both SCALA and LilyPond that are derived from linux and ported to Windows..are FREE (not shareware,etc..)
Link to LilyPond  (you dump in it   a midi file and presto you get  the sheet music notes)
