Because of the skin?

Asked by Kristoffer Grundström

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)


Can you help with this problem?
