There are two issues here, you need to properly escape the slash: "C:\\\\a.jpg".

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?

That's me not being a Windows user shining trough, i somehow got it in my head that you needed two backslashes after the C:.

But indeed just "C:\\a.jpg" or r"C:\a.jpg" will work as expected.
