There are two issues here, you need to properly escape the slash:
Pixbuf p = new Pixbuf(r"C:\\a.jpg");
Thanks. Why do I need 4 slashes? Is that standard with gtk because
strings are interpreted twice or something? Seemed to work though.
Nothing specific to GTK but in D and other programing languages the \ is
used as an escape character, so you can use special characters in your
sting like `\n` for a newline. But this means you will need to use \\ to
get an literal back slash.
I think you missed the point of the question.
In the end, the path should contain only one backslash. But with
`"C:\\\\a.jpg"` and `r"C:\\a.jpg"` you get two. Why do you need two?
Does the library do another round of escape sequence handling?
