Use Qt, It provides you with a really good, easy to use, Rapid Application Development interface, some thing like Delphi interface.

Hi

I think there are very different approaches on writting GUI (Dialog Windows) applications on Linux:

A. The finest way is JAVA

1. h**p://java.sun.com
Write your applet/application in windows and run it on linux/solaris/...etc or reverse.


B. The next way is write with Perl/Tk

2. h**p://www.perltk.org/


C. The other way is write with Tcl/Tk

3. h**p://www.tcl.tk/
In tcl you have the chance of using a fine tool called visual TCL too.
4. h**p://vtcl.sourceforge.net/


* -> t

tnx

if you are using delphi or familiar with object pascal, then kylix is the best soluction for writing gui application on linux.

Hello

If you use Kylix v3, you can also write in C++ (instead of delphi) and it's compatible with clx applications in Borland builder v6.

If you would use Qt, you had to give your complete source code of your application with it. Why? Because the Qt is licensed under GPL. Read the license on their site.
To avoid such situation I would suggest to use wxWindows toolkit instead. It is similar to MFC and is licensed under LGPL license. More on http://www.wxwindows.org

For most applications, python is a sensible choice.

I will urge you to learn python and use it with WxPython (http://www.wxpython.org). Users have been saying it is as easy to learn as it should be, and you get all the power of WxWindows and the speed of development of python.

In case any of you wonders, I use PyGTK when I build a python user interface. But I tend to write most of the atomic widgets in C. Please see http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-wrap/ for reference on wrapping a GObject in python.

Quack
