    Re: Suggestions

    Python is easier than Java and a good choice to start, but Java is still pretty simple (too simple according to some academics: http://www.regdeveloper.co.uk/2008/01/10/academics_slam_java/ )

    Re: pc emulators

    VMWare is definitely the way to go, and is pretty easy to install if you follow the guides on this forum (ie. just use the repositories, don't try to compile it yourself).

    I think Wine now almost...

    Re: setting up netbeans 6.0 with tomcat

    $CATALINA_HOME (if I'm not mistaken- it's been a while) should just be the install directory of tomcat.

    Re: RP N Calculator Test

    Pretty nice- tried to stump it but seems pretty robust- even differentiates between +ve and -vi infinity.

    Out of curiosity what do you use RPN for so much you would make a widget from it?
  5. Re: can't compile math program with cosine algorithm in x64

    I should probably explain further- including the header file is not enough- you need to actually link against the math library also (-lm = link math)
  6. Re: can't compile math program with cosine algorithm in x64

    try

    gcc -lm test.c

    Re: app icons?

    Yep it is possible. I use glade for most of my development, and when creating the main window, you can just point to a graphic to use for an icon (I make my own SVG icons).

    Sorry, I don't know...

    Re: Glade to C++?

    If you want to use Glade with C++, you have to use Glademm, rather than vanilla glade. From my experience Glademm is a bit rough around the edges, so I just stick with C and Glade.

    Re: Choosing a Programming Language

    In that case maybe Java is worth looking into- obviously a huge library out there, scales per CPU, good IDE & GUI tools, good community, and can run directly on Windows/Linux with no changes.

    Re: gtk toolbar question

    In Glade, create a toolbar and right-click it, select "Edit" and it takes you to a screen where you can add buttons, dividers, etc.

    Create some buttons, select them and change the type to "Radio"....

    Re: Help with Glade 3.4.0

    I don't have Glade installed on the machine in front of me now, but I think from memory there is a button down the bottom on the right called "add" or something where you can add items to the toolbar...

    Re: Why???

    When you say you want to develop for Gnome or KDE, do you mean ON or FOR?

    You can develop C++ apps on Gnome using gtkmm.

    Re: Choosing a Programming Language

    Learn C/C++ with pthreads- scales to use all CPUs automatically. Quite easy to learn the basics too (I learnt using just web tutorials)

    Re: Help with Glade 3.4.0

    Like most things, it takes a bit of practise and getting used to. I used to find it quite frustrating at first too, but now I can whip out GUI C programs without too much effort (well, all effort...
  18. Re: errors dont get shown to users except from terminal

    Interesting idea to maybe implement for all apps (rather than Wine)

    Maybe when running something from a Launcher in the GUI, have the ability to display any output to stderr in a visible window? ...

    Re: Help "Creating my own GUI"

    I would use Glade + GTK for this, but rather than make my own Widget, would probably just use a Pixbuff and draw on as part of the program
