gtk2 and gtk3 code for the same thing
> I know already vlc developper's answer : complaint to your distro maintainer. This is only to warn openSUSE packagers, since there is not really something to do :

> Anyway, don't spend to much time on this. I had already problems with gtk 3.0 on another project using libvlc and GTK3 : Freetuxtv, whereas API detection was OK :
> I had to switch back to GTK2.0 on openSUSE 11.4, and I got angular appearance like motif interfaces on openSUSE 12.1, with same binary, which is the lesser disadvantage.

> openSUSE 12.1 offers GTK 3.2.1 and is OK. You should refine GTK3 best version for most distributions.
