Hello Ron,

There is "d-apt" <> where there are dmd and gtkd deb for Linux Mint.

To add this repository to your Linux Mint just run this two lines from command line:

$ sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/d-apt.list

$ sudo apt-get update --allow-insecure-repositories && sudo apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated install --reinstall d-apt-keyring && sudo apt-get update

After that you can install all the packages on "d-apt".

To install dmd compiler, dmd doc, gtkd devel and gtkd doc packages just run the next line:

$ sudo apt-get install dmd-compiler dmd-doc libgtkd3-dev libgtkd3-doc

Then you can compile/run a GtkD example contained on gtkd doc archive. To do that just run the next line:

$ dmd `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtkd-3` -run /usr/share/libgtkd3-doc/demos/gtkD/TestWindow/*.d -ofTestWindow

To run the compiled example just type:

$ ./TestWindow

There are more examples at /usr/share/libgtkd3-doc/demos/

Hope this help you.
