Description of Problem:
Legacy Applications capplet is missing from Gnome Control Center

This is a very handy capplet especially if you use Qt programs under Gnome.
Though it did not work very well in previous versions, I hope RedHat will
include a working one in the final release.

Comment 1 David Mason 2001-10-01 15:16:36 UTC
this is a capplet provided by Ximian (or others) we have never provided it. This
is based on software that changes the look and feel of many different widget
sets which we do not want to do as most users do not need the extra options.
Thanks for the input.

Comment 2 Ecmel Ercan 2001-10-01 15:22:24 UTC
But without this capplet, Qt uses a very big font.  (Try using Kylix under Gnome)

Then how can I change the font of Qt under gnome?  I don't have KDE at all.

Comment 3 David Mason 2001-10-01 15:28:25 UTC
Kylix does not use QT it uses its own widget set - you will need to ask Borland
- we do not use (or even have) it here. Kylix attempts to match QT and GTK+ -
there is probably some dot file it stores somewhere in your home dir - but that
is a guess.

Comment 4 Ecmel Ercan 2001-10-02 07:48:52 UTC
Then try using Kylix compiled programs, or Eagle layout editor or any other Qt

Comment 5 David Mason 2001-10-02 14:03:06 UTC
I use QT apps all the time in GNOME and they look just fine. Again, Kylix and
apps created with Kylix do not use QT or GTK+ they use a Kylix-specific widget
set because Borland could not choose between the two.

Comment 6 Ecmel Ercan 2001-10-02 14:19:35 UTC
This is wrong.  Kylix compiled applications uses Qt and depends on it.  Please
refer to borland.com

On my RedHat Roswell and previous versions, applications using Qt under gnome
displays big fonts.  With legacy applications capplet, they use what ever GTK+
theme uses. This makes my desktop unified and makes Qt apps more usable under Gnome.

Comment 8 David Mason 2001-10-02 14:30:01 UTC
Sorry - that is not QT in your screenshot - if anything it looks like GTK+.  I
am also sorry, I do not know of any way to change the fonts in a QT-only app - I
also know very very few apps that are QT without KDE - we dont ship any that I
am aware of. If it relies on any of the KDE libraries it is rather easy to do in
their control center or in a dot file. We have never shipped any tool that would
alter the look of QT-only apps. I do not know where you got the control-center
capplet you did - but if you find it I assume you can use it here.  Please try
contacting the maker of that Eagle application (we also have never shipped that
application) - they can probably tell you.

Comment 9 Ecmel Ercan 2001-10-07 13:29:47 UTC
This is a Qt application.  

Qt default theme resembles Gtk.  Anyway thanks a lot for your time.
