Simple / quick GUI on the command line ?


Hello,

I want to make a little app that gets run from the command line of a Linux box. I would like to make this app presentable and contain a GUI.

The app also needs to be able to run local system commands.

I was looking at dialog but it does not offer what I want ...

I thought using links with -g would be good ... the app could be web based ... but I can not run system commands locally then ... which is a must.

Any ideas ...

Michael.

You probably want to use something like gtk:

Thanks for the reply ...

I though GTK only worked in X-windows ... this app is strictly run from the console.

Michael.
