ParaGUI
« on: November 13, 2004, 06:30:57 AM »
Has anybody got ParaGUI 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.
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(

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.

-edit-
There doesn't seem to be much activity here 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 :)

@Abraxis

There's a rapid application development software package available for Qt called LavaPE 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?
