As sent to author me AT davidsansome.com:
Against the 0.3 source download. I don't know if you have a FreeBSD box at
your hands but the PR is at
The patches can be derived from there or once/if the port gets comitted or
from me if you like.
It seems to work OK on FreeBSD-5.2-RELEASE and 5.2-CURRENT, I don't have
many GTK apps installed as I use maily KDE; tried it on gimp-1.3 and that
worked and tried on a wx-python/wx-gtk2 app of my own (the "OK" button looks
weird or has no image/text at all, most widgets seem OK, some, like
textfields lack the frame border when looked at with one of the Plastik
themes). Gimp may hang, but I doubt it's because of the engine (FreeBSD
recently changed pthread libs and I think that's the cause here). Of course
it requires some testing on other FreeBSD versions to see if it works at all
It was a simple port. I submitted it to ports at freebsd without requesting
maintainership myself. This is better off with the overall KDE or Gnome
port/package team IMHO. If it gets into the tree I'm sure people will try it
and complain if it doesn't work.
Thanks for your software! Would appreciate a headsup if the major version
changes. I'll be happy to provide more feedback if you desire so.
