Description Leonardo Augusto Pereira 2012-10-19 06:00:36 UTC
The Pixbuf constructor Pixbuf(string filename) wraps gdk_pixbuf_create_new_from_file, which will fail to load certain filenames on Windows ("C:\\áéíóú.jpg" for example). In those cases, gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file_utf8 should be used, however I could not find any method which wraps that Gtk+ function. Meaning it is probably missing.
