in thread where are all the files I need?

I know its a far stretch.. its written in Perl..

perl2exe builds a platform specific executable, and like the perl Packager, it bundles files and unbundles into a folder before invoking the perl app.. these will dynamically be loaded into the executables path.. (and all cleaned up on app exit).

so, yes, I am bundling the runtime sos (dlls on windows) just enough to make this work, self contained. (I already do this for the commandline version of my app)

this is a support assistance app. I cannot modify the platform configuration that the user is having trouble with (I can use the ONE folder the app is installed in and ONE folder in /tmp. My app is distributed in a zip for windows and gz for everything else)

so, I was asking, does anyone know how the default gtk theme engine, used by the wx code, works, so I can find the missing file(s) I need to add to my bundle.

I ask here cause the spread of talent and experience is wider than anyplace else I've seen..

if this is too non-perl then please delete this thread.

    You just might want to wander over to Google Groups and possibly find the WX users group there and ask. While your app might be written in Perl the libs you speak of are not. I know myself that if I tried to do what you are doing the air in my cubicle would turn a nice shade of blue.
