It's not a blog, it's a thread in the forum... ?

Never mind, I thought there was more of a connection than just "if you post in my blog I'll block you" because after that, the fact that it goes against both rules was pointed out. Apparently I just took it as being more important here (in the forum) that it goes against the blog rules, if you see what I mean.

I posted this thread because I wasn't certain what to do. I, however, do have to build ClutterSmith from source <yawn> because it isn't in the Ubuntu repository.

But that's beside the point: I will try this tool and see how it is. Thread marked Solved.

I built every package on my system (including X.org and KDE) from source from ports on here (FreeBSD) just recently. It took me more than a couple of full days of it running non-stop...
I used:
Code:
make config-recursive
make fetch-recursive
make install clean
for the largest packages (like KDE and X.org) so I could just sleep through it and do whatever else when possible. I played Modern Warfare 2 online on Xbox 360 a lot while it was building.

Does ClutterSmith have actual UI elements like buttons, text entries, combo boxes, etc. that you put in the window?

Yes - Try building the Linux kernel from source only to find your SSD filling up. That's what happened to me.

As far as I know, it requires a JavaScript engine (either Gjs or Seed) to design a UI, as well as probably Mutter. But I believe it's designed for programming whole GUIs, not just applications.

At first, I had about one-third of my hard drive dedicated to FreeBSD and it filled up, then I just split it more evenly between FreeBSD and Kubuntu and started over.
Code:
[prdeltoid@home /usr/home/prdeltoid]$ df -h
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad4s3a     34G    7.1G     24G    23%    /
devfs          1.0K    1.0K      0B   100%    /dev
linprocfs      4.0K    4.0K      0B   100%    /usr/compat/linux/proc
procfs         4.0K    4.0K      0B   100%    /proc

I'm impressed with the difference in speed. Everything is very noticeably faster and smoother when compiled.

Yes, prdeltoid, but when you only have 8GB of SSD space to allocate you have a problem. Good thing my desktop has a 500GB hard drive. However, slight problem: My CMOS battery is dead on that desktop's motherboard, which means that the computer won't boot past the BIOS. This means I'm stuck with the netbook.

Why not replace the battery?

My mother is going to replace it (already bought a new one), but she is busy until Monday.
