I want someone to port "gcolor" to the later gtk releases. and yes, I know this is not porting. I've tried gcolor2, but it just doesn't do it for me. I like to have the background and foreground selection of the original. I'm even thinking of further hacking "tcolor" to include a second colour selection, but it doesn't even read modified rgb files without barfing at the moment.

again I say, it was easier with rh8.

I don't know what fedora has in it's repository. You'll probably have dependency issues compiling it from source, but if you want it, then find out what you need to do to get it running.

There is absolutely nothing like Apple's new version of Final Cut Pro X on any other platform. But for intermediate level video editors, it is heaven. I would like to see it on Linux.

Exclamation What programs I want to see in Linux?

A good (working) webcam monitor program that can monitor several webcams, that support access via the internet, allow snapshots/video clips to be sent via email/posted on a website/upload to a website etc. I know if a Windows program called Active Webcam that have these facilities but there is no Linux (Fedora) version available.

probly now the wrong place, but ....

thanks teckk,

I went back and had another go at gcolor-0.4. pretty much the same every time I type
"./configure", this time it failed with

......
checking for ANSI C header files... yes
checking for gtk-config... no
checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gtk-config.

considering the following are all installed

gtk+-1.2.10-70.fc13.i686
gtk2-2.22.0-1.fc14.1.i686
gtk2-devel-2.22.0-1.fc14.1.i686
gtk3-2.90.5-1.fc14.i686
gtk3-devel-2.90.5-1.fc14.i686

I dunno what more to do. now I look at it, I guess you're going to say install gtk+-devel-1.2.10, or words to that effect. I did manage "gtk-config" on rh8.0, way back, but it wasn't easy then, and I don't remember how or what I did.

any hints?

NetFlix

I want to see software to allow Linux users to be able to use Netflix on their computers too.
I tried the free 30 day subscription they offered but it only worked on Windows 7 and when I cancelled my free subscription I was asked why and I told them, get Linux compatibility and I will come back but not until then.

As my Ubuntu is a little slugish, I want to try a new distru, so this seems to be a good time to try fedora! Will remort back later.

words to that effect

"now I look at it, I guess you're going to say install gtk+-devel-1.2.10, or words to that effect."

and so it was. gcolor works, just like it used to. now I need to find how to name the widgets in the .gtkrc files to change their colours ......

johnh10000, fedora just makes me angry, but I have no access to other distros, and little inclination to go through all this setting up carp again.

unix - windows common roots

Have to comment that it makes good sense that software that is made to run in UNIX will likely be more stable than software originally built on the Windows platform for the simple reason that UNIX was created first, and was built with multi-tasking, sharing resources, and ownership/permissions built into the design of the OS.
When the original makers/users needed a dumbed-down version, to run only one thread at a time, for only one user on the CPU, they created DOS.
Eventually, humans wanted the interface to be more intuitive and friendly, so, following Apple's leadership, the Windows community was born. By strapping on networking and sort of facilitating the complexities related to file sharing, Windows began to be a usable OS.
Following the seeming debacles of NT and follow-ons, I think Windows is finally getting more usable for most people, or at least sheer volume necessitates we humans to learn to accomodate.

Sorry if this was a bit of a rant. Guess all my years at Sun, trying to get the world to understand that UNIX is the better OS, and networking applications and sharing information securely was the way to work overtook my shyness this morning. At least I'm ranting on a technical topic related to this forum.

Another point, is that such software ported from UNIX tends to be much more stable than software originally built on the Windows platform.

I recall in the past coming across Scribus, but then getting sidetracked and not taking time out to give it a shake, and for my daughter, 'R' seems like something she can begin using next fall when she begins her Algebra II when entering 9th grade and also Bio I at the community college, as recommended by her counselor.

I love following these threads, as they tend to help me stumble across little gems like this.

Thanks @ceedeedoos!!!
