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."

Care to explain where I lied ?

Sure, I'll point one of your numerous attempts.

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)

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

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

d) react on global changes set through control center.

If you have actually really written a GNOME application as opposed to copying and pasting code of the internet, you'd know GKT+ allows you to do all these.

What was wrong about the toolbar issue ? I mean everyone with brains can test the same stuff on their own machines.

What's wrong is that it is stupid for all toolbars to have the same attributes because different applications are constrained by different needs. Something your 24 years of programming should have made obvious to you.

I think you are the one here who don't know anything about the GNOME framework, but then you are just hacking along a silly editor in python while we already have Gedit which is much more powerful. Do you have users for your tools ?

Scribes is one of my pet GNOME projects. And yes, it is has a lot of features that Gedit doesn't have it will have more. And yes, I do have a community of users with thousands of downloads. And for someone who doesn't know shit about how the GTK+ toolbar class/objects work, you have a lot of nerves questioning my knowledge about GNOME. I don't claim to be a GURU, but even a toddler knows GTK+ allows you to do everything you say it doesn't. Quit copying and pasting code from other projects, and actually go read the GTK+ manual sometime.

a) I don't need to fix anything,
b) I write my stuff for my own needs,
c) I don't owe you or anyone else unaccountable of what I do.
d) 0.1.4 don't suffer from the things you said but it's not released.

This is the same person who tells everyone GNOME developers are jerks, don't fix bugs in their software and don't listen to users. It is worthless wasting my time with you. Good day.
