Re: Uniform look-and-feel on GNU/Linux




But what about to promot a Standard Look &Feell, say in Freedesktop. It can suggest how graphical objects should look, no matter of toolkit?

Actually there is a GTK+ 2 "backend" for Swing [1]. It draws all buttons
and text fields and so on like GTK+ does, but it does not always work
well. For example, some text input fields that work well with the
default Java Swing look are very small with the GTK+ look.

It also is no more accessible to blind users than the default look. How
could it be?
