Of file dialogs and customizable toolbars


Hi all

This is my first post - so apologies if I'm merely repeating something
obvious.

I was just reading this:

http://www.linuxworld.com/site-stories/2002/0628.kde.future.html

The author gives examples of the KDE customizable toolbar and advanced
file selector widgets to show why Qt/KDE apps are much more
user-friendly (esp. for power users).

It really annoys me that such trivial features should lead to the
'superior toolkit' stuff. Balsa already has the customizable toolbars
feature and GIMP File selector with Ximian GNOME is pretty close to the
file dialog (The Anjuta file dialog also has some of the features). It
shouldn't be that hard to make a couple of generic widgets, borrowing
code wherever possible to solve these problems.

However, the fact is that currently, there are no such widgets. It is
also true that having such widgets available (with a simple API) makes
adding these features much easier and gives a consistent look and feel
to the applications. For example, balsa, galeon and anjuta2 all
implement toolbar customization in slightly different ways but the end
purpose is the same.

So, my question is: is anyone working on this ? By 'this', I mean a
library which contains advanced versions of some basic GTK/GNOME

	The entire backtrace is needed, of all the threads, and all their stack
frames. This kind of bug is also best filed in bugzilla. Please CC me;

Read the "filesel notes" thread on gtk-devel which Havoc 
Pennington started March 9. 

If I remember correctly the first thing to do was to make a 
survey of the file selectors of other toolkits (Havoc made a 
brief one) and then list the requirements for one in gtk+/GNOME.

I have a vague recollection that one of the Anjuta developers 
was looking at this, but I might be wrong.

The library you are looking for might be "libegg"

Read through it (also 'new file selector dialog' in the gnome-devel list
by mdew 7th march). Is there any concrete API/code anywhere ?

I suppose you mean Phillip, who AFAIK wrote the gtkfileselection stuff
for Anjuta. I have gone through the anjuta/widgets/gtkfileselection.*
and anjuta/widgets/gtkdirselection.* - also did some fixes (mainly
leaks). However, what I have in mind is something more advanced. IMO, we

No, no one has started yet. There is some work on an icon list in libegg.

Prototypes should go in libegg, then when they are stable they move to
one of the existing libraries (e.g. gtk, libgnomeui).

using Gnome from a library


I want to call some routines in gnome-mime and gnome-mime-info from a C++
library. If Gnome is not running, I don't want to start it. How do I do this?

This is for possible inclusion in my JConfig library, which is part java
and part native code. Alternatively, is there a way for java to link to Gnome?

Send Sun a Message!       Vote for JConfig here:

See the 'Best Class Library', 'Best Component', and 'Most Innovative
Product' categories. Thanks!

Get JConfig here: http://www.jconfig.com

Use JConfig to: enumerate the user's hard drives,
launch processes, get the file type of a file,
launch the user's default web browser, and much more.

I have some patches in Bugzilla against Jacob's file-sel that does just
this (it has both per-user and per-app bookmarks)

This is the GNOME filesel I assume (since you're using GConf) ? What
about the default GTK+ filesel then ? BTW, what's the bug no. ?

yes, cvs module 'file-sel'

#59510 (but it's rather dated, maybe it has bit-rotten since then)
