Converting a shell script with dialog boxes into a GNOME application


Hi,

I have a bash shell script which basically runs shell commands and uses "dialog" command to interact with users.

I am now thinking to make this utility more pretty by converting into a GNOME based (graphical) application. What is the easiest way to do this? What development environment should I be using?

Note that I not talking about Xdialog thing by which I can convert into a X-based application.

the TK toolkit is more universal...I wouldn't restrict it to one GUI, that way you have more support(if you added it to sourceforge, etc)

Did you mean GTK toolkit? I see your point. So if ones wants to develop it for KDE and GNOME then what IDE one should use? I am very new to this GUI programming in Linux world so sorry for my ignorance..

It doesn't matter. Use any.
