xx Linux screenshots
« Thread started on: Jun 17th, 2006, 3:30pm »

I promised that I would put up some Linux screenshots, so here they are!

This looks familiar:

This is just a preliminary debugger. The pane on the upper left shows simple stack information.

This grid doesn't do much more than what you see, but it will!

Some simple graphics!

Looks like a much better gui library than the one used in the other
programming language I use.

Looks good. smiley Thanks Carl,

The appearance of the widgets emulates Motif, which more or less defines what Unix GUIs are 'supposed' to look like. There are several higher level toolkits for Linux, but they tend to look different from each other, so there is no real standard. On the other hand, there is no real standard for Windows either since it has changed shape a couple of times and is about to morph again into Vista sometime next year as long as the release date doesn't slip again. ; )

Speaking of release dates....

Ubuntu Dapper Drake is slick enough to support this, I think. Do the widgets work under GTK2 (Gnome)?

Will the linux version have a console type mode where it can access the environmental variables such as the ones set by web servers and such? Also, will it have access to hardware I/O ports as well as USB gizmos which have the appropriate drivers (such as USB to serial adapters)?

The difference, at least on Windows your program will utilize
whatever the system has set for the gui, but on linux you don't have
that luxury. On linux you have to take into consideration what library
to use, Gnome(GTK), KDE(QT), FLTK, or in your case a library that's
small enough to integrate and pass along with the program itself.

Linux is cool and all, but is still a pain in the arse when it comes to
the GUI situation. If people could settle in on one standard gui system
for linux, it would be whole lot better off. But as it is now, it will never
be capable of being a main stream desktop system for the average
user. It's a failure in the open source concept. It also adds to bloating
in linux systems since you have to have several windowing libraries
installed.

Ehhhhhh.... Ok, going too far off topic now. Sorry about that.
Anyway, the motif library you're using looks good. smiley

Any Linux that supports XLib (and AFAIK they all do) will work with LB5.

I will do all that stuff if I can, but I still have much to learn about Linux. The console part will definitely happen.

LB (natively) on Linux is in da house! Nice grid widget. When are we going to be able to kick the tires? v4.03 on Linux via WINE isn't very good.

The beta testing will be open so anyone will be able to participate, but it just hasn't started yet.
