I dunno, I ran into the same basic issues as you, but gave up after I
realized gtk wasn't supported in the released sources (this was the
project, btw, that gave me such a bad impression of premake).

You might try Wolfgang Oertl's lua-gtk though, I found it to work quite

There are still a few bugs in random functions, but he's very responsive
to bug reports (it seems the few things I've reported are already fixed
in CVS).

It's also a package in debian (sid), if you run that.

Lua-gtk's interface is somewhat lower-level than IUP, being based on gtk
(though slightly nicer than the raw gtk C bindings; it's more like gtkmm
maybe).  It does seem like an IUP-like "describe nesting with tables"
interface wouldn't be hard to build in Lua using lua-gtk as a base
