    GUI building help please?

    Hi,

    How would I go about building a GUI for a command line program for ubuntu please? I have no experience with this so if anyone can point me to a tutorial would be great. I only have experience with autoit in windows which I use to build guis for windows cl tools.

    Thanks

    Aaron

    I have been tying to teach myself python with both qt & gtk, but if you just want a gui for bash:

    Whiptail is a program that allows shell scripts to display dialog boxes

    zenity, kdialog for kde


    Lots of links on scripting in this thread

    Zenity is another option. It is installed in Ubuntu by default.

    For help:
    Code:
    man zenity
    or
    Code:
    zenity --help
