Novell and Ximian Rumors circulating that Novell is going to kill off its popular Linux desktop lines are completely false. [However,] Novell is making one large strategic change. The GNOME interface is going to become the default interface on both the SLES and Novell Linux Desktop line. KDE libraries will be supplied on both, but the bulk of Novell's interface moving forward will be on GNOME. "The entire KDE graphical interface and product family will continue to be supported and delivered on OpenSuSE."

Ali, just stop please. The more you talk the more you expose your ignorance.

If the GTK+ toolbar object was designed correctly then it would allow us to do this (out of the object itself)

a) describe whether we want handles or not (to drag the toolbar out of the app or align it horizontally, vertically, at the bottom or the top or inside other toolbar elements)

I have written GNOME apps, and I know the GTK+ toolbar class/object allows you to set this up.

b) allows us to globally set the icon size (as KDE offers this possibility by right clicking on the toolbar object)

Are you kidding me?

c) allows us to globally edit the toolbar and save the results in a configuration file so it stays permanent.

No shit! What is UIManager is GTK+ for? There is even a library that gives you a toolbar editor for free.

d) react on global changes set through control center.

You don't even have to write any code for this. It is the default behavior.

But of course, if you knew what you were saying to begin with, I wouldn't be writing this comment.

You are a sad case, truly.
