View Full Version : ParaGUI

Has anybody got ParaGUI (http://paragui.org) to work under Linux on the AmigaOne or Pegasos? I think it would be really handy to have a multiplatform compliant GUI utility around... :-D

I haven't a PPC to test with, but most Linux already come with GTK, Qt and more.

I've looked at QT but it looks like it would be a bear to port to AmigaOS. ParaGUI, on the other hand, uses SDL for its graphics engine. It should be much easier to port. Nonetheless it would be nice to see a port of GTK on the Amiga.
There doesn't seem to be much activity here (https://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk-amiga/) however.

There's nothing to stop a Qt port to MorphOS or AmigaOS; the basic class structure, would translate VERY easily to a BOOPSI-based (method/dispatch) and Exec Device (commands via DoIO()) framework. Qt bears a good resemblence to MUI enough to even layer on top of that.
What you'd get on Qt however is a complete loss of some of the more advanced features; MIME clipboards and so on.
I don't know how many Qt applications rely on them, you would have to find an app to port as a test :)

There's a rapid application development software package available for Qt called LavaPE (http://lavape.sourceforge.net/) that I'd like to see on Amiga sometime but it's nowhere near as complete as I'd like...
What do you think of the Q Public Licence (http://doc.trolltech.com/3.3/license.html)?
