Because of the skin?

Asked by Kristoffer Grundström on 2010-05-31

I just downloaded the latest version of Linuxdcpp & I see a huge difference between the Linux-version & the Windows-version 0.762 which just has been released.

Why is it so different gui-wise?

Is it because of the skin in each OS?

Linuxdcpp uses the GTK toolkit in Linux, Windows DC++ uses it's own (I guess it was some mutant SmartWin?) and anyway the look-and-feel of windows widgets is a bit different.

You can try different GTK themes, if they make the LinuxDC++ to look more like the Windows version if that is what you want. (Themes only change the UI of the widgets and icons, you can't restructure the UI with them)
