Thanks for the replies, guys...

I quoted the above line because it's just about the only thing I 
understood. Let me explain...

It's been almost 20 years since I used Linux and my notes are 
long gone. A ton of things have changed. Like, for instance, it 
found all my hardware this time, without me getting involved. But 
also the software installation managers and lots of other things 
are completely unrecognizable. On top of that, my brain has 
(unfortunately) been molded into the Windows/Microsoft way of 

I guess what I'm hoping for is a step-by-step, 
full-on-hand-holding, large-print with pictures tutorial for how 
to get GtkD and (I guess) dub working. I know the stuff you wrote 
is probably helpful, but I'm not well-enough versed in Linux or 
any flavour of UNIX ATM to understand it, pick which option I 
should use, and to put these commands in proper order.

So far, as I said, dmd is working. Up until now, I've avoided dub 
because, with so many code examples (more than 70 at present) dub 
would bring in a lot of file/directory clutter.

But you're saying that dub will make it easier to keep up with 
future changes/updates in all the various bits and bobs, so if 
that means I finally have to do dub, perhaps someone could point 
me at a good tutorial for that?

Sorry if I sound ungrateful or cranky, but I have a lot on my 
plate ATM and I'm getting frustrated.
