installing GTK+ 2.x should be easy, since there are all-in-one-installers
for windows on http://www.gtk.org (for GTK+) and http://www.pygtk.org
(for Python+GTK+).

Installing GTK+ 3.x on windows is currently a bit more complicated, but this
situation should improve soon.

I never was happy with QtDesigner -- I always struggled *a lot*
(in contrast to Glade, where most things worked like a charm).

I not even achieved to rename the tab of a notebook (?!) or to create
a button with an icon above the text, or a grid layout without a fixed
layout. It even seems that the QtDesigner doesn't even provide standard-
icons (e.g. for open, close, exit etc.) or a file dialog. Am I doing
something fundamentally wrong in QtDesigner, or is QtDesigner really
that bad?
