    Question Graphics

    I've read the part about graphics in the toturials section but it this how GUI's are made? For instance is KDE written using similar code?

    Best regards

    see http://www.trolltech.com or http://doc.trolltech.com KDE is made with the QT Library (not the Quick Time apple movie players) . gui programming in linux is quite easy and the qt library is very well documented and if you want to learn install KDevelop
    ftp://download.uk.kde.org/pub/ with qt (3 library ...do not install qt2 as it is being depleted and few applications are now being ported to 3 for the upcoming KDE3 in march second week) there are really good examples in the documentation .


    cheers

    I don't really get it. Is Qt a programming language?

    Cheers

    C++ is the programming language while they charge for the library/api/tools etc...

    Qt is a c++ toolkit that aids in the construction of graphical user interfaces (as opposed to GTK, qwhich does it in C). I don't know exactly what it stands for, but my guess is that it's supposed to be a phonetic play on "cutie".

    The Dec 01 issue of Linux Mag (www.linux-mag.com) had a pretty nice into to using it.

    KDEvelop

    howdy,
    i have RH 7.2 and it came with KDEvelop.
    does it contain all of the libraries and tools you speak of?
    i have considered Kylix (im a real borland builder fan) but im not sure it will do the same thing as KDE...

    any good links will be apreciated.

    M.R.

    yes it contains everything you need other then the sql and database connectivity lib so you can install the new ones without dependencies

    with

    rpm --force --nodeps yourrpms


    what i would suggest is

    wait till 18'th march(kde 3 will release date ) and then download qtdesigner3 rpm with qt3 + kdevelop it will kick ass seriously ... qt designer 3 is really cool with astonishing features .


    or download the unstable ones for mandrake - suse for current appraisal . ftp://download.uk.kde.org

    i have not tested the beta qt(s) rpm for redhat

    play safe
