Talk:GTK3

From GnuCash
Jump to: navigation, search

There should probably by sections for each main OS supported by GnuCash. Users on *nix may come here but see only Windows specific info. I'll be happy to create and populate the sections if the OP is only focused on Windows.

Absolutely. The idea is that people add related info to the page. I currently have only a Linux VM at home and can't confirm if things run the same on Linux. From my understanding, Adwaita Dark is included in GTK but I couldn't switch to it on Windows.
We could divide the sections per OS, as was done in the linked articles.
That said, there's not much that's Windows specific on this page yet. CSS and GTK settings should work pretty much the same on any OS.

Yes, but I would prefer the following form:
GTK will search the content of the environment variable XDG_CONFIG_DIRS for ... That means under
Linux
/etc/xdg
MacOS

Windows

First name the freedesktop standard and then its OS dependend default. See also Wiki Conventions

What categories would you suggest for this page? Geert's instructions for GTK3 theming work on Windows so I find the page more-or-less complete in terms of functionality. --Cicko (talk) 10:54, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

I am still experimenting to get useful category trees, but I think Customization might be a good keyword.

--- Thanks, John, for the instructions on customizing the keyboard shortcuts! Very useful. --Cicko (talk) 07:45, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Structure

I think you should reorder the sections and obey a few different dimensions:

  1. General System settings (/etc) affects all users e.g. from GTK,
  2. Application specific sytem settings (/etc/gnucash/ or similar)
  3. General User settings ~/config/... overwrite system settimgs e.g. with the config tools of your desktop environment
  4. Users and application specific settings ~/config/gnucash/ or similar with
  • containing also document stuff like .css files

Distinguish another dimension GTK affecting rc files and document affecting elements like CSS files.

Does this also apply on Windows? --Cicko (talk) 10:31, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Yes. John Ralls (talk) 13:36, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
