Fedora is the thing that's terrible, not Sineshaper.

I've had people with these problems numerous times with Om as well
(which also depends on Gtkmm), exclusively with Fedora.  I can't
possibly understand how Fedora doesn't have the very widely used
official C++ bindings to GTK.  How many packages do they have?  12?

Try switching to a distribution that actually ..distributes..
 things people need.
