Broadway on Ubuntu 14.04

Hi all.

Reposting from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2301869 ... (
I'm not getting any takers there ).

I'm a long-time Gentoo user, and attempting to get an application
running on a Ubuntu VM ( 14.04 LTS ) for work. I'm using gtk's
broadway backend, which in Gentoo can be enabled by setting the
'broadway' USE flag. It's proving to be quite difficult with Ubuntu,

First, I tried using the binaries from:
https://launchpad.net/~malizor/+arch...u/gtk-broadway. This package
doesn't install cleanly. I get strange errors about incompatibilities,
and I end up with a broadwayd binary, but with gtk+ build without
broadway support.

Next I followed instructions at:
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/rebuild...inary-package/. I edited
debian/rules in the gtk+ source folder, and added
--enable-broadway-backend. I then continued to build as per the
instructions ( ie fakeroot debian/rules binary ). This almost works.
It dies right at the end:


dh_install -plibgtk-3-0  --sourcedir=debian/install/shared
dh_link -plibgtk-3-0
dh_installmime -plibgtk-3-0
dh_installgsettings -plibgtk-3-0
dh_gconf -plibgtk-3-0
dh_icons -plibgtk-3-0
dh_translations -plibgtk-3-0
dh_langpack: processing files to add translation domain 'gtk30'..
# Install the binaries with a -3.0 suffix
mv debian/libgtk-3-0/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgtk-3-0/gtk-update-icon-cache \
mv: cannot stat
No such file or directory
make: *** [binary-install/libgtk-3-0] Error 1

I have no idea why this error occurs.

Does anyone know how I can get broadway support in gtk+ in Ubuntu 14.04?

Thanks ...
