Eets Alive!

After weeks of fiddling and false starts, this was the scene on my screen some 120 seconds ago:


Banshee on Windows, baby!

Awesome, good work!

Default gtk theme on Windows = gross.

ChilliCoder said...

Congrats! It just great news! :D

Ignacio said...

Someone needs to work on how gtk looks in Windows. The theme is just horrible.

Anyway, congrats.

quark said...

Wow, that's excellent! Congrats! Is the goal to have official and stable Windows builds alongside the Linux builds in the future?

Patrick said...

Good stuff! How much hacking did it take?

Sandy said...

Schweet!

Thanks for the congratulations, everyone!

Yeah, we'll defiantly be shipping with a nicer theme and icon set.

Is the goal to have official and stable Windows builds alongside the Linux builds in the future?

Yes

How much hacking did it take?

The solution I went with was relatively straight forward. See a log of everything I tried at http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=ah4grsjk7k4c_68fpnbd7

Do you have a screen shot of how this looked before you started to fiddle with it?

Can someone say with some amount of specificity what exactly looks "gross" about the gtk theme on Win32? There are actually people out there who are trying to improve gtk on Win32, but if you only vaguely say that it's "gross" you're not really helping them.

I'd like to kindly point you to bugzilla.gnome.org so you can file bug reports on the GTK Win32 theme. Please include screenshots and detailed descriptions of your bugs so that they'll be useful.

Umm, reading the http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=ah4grsjk7k4c_68fpnbd7 document, do you mix up GLib and other stuff for Cygwin with Mono which runs on "bare" Windows (no Cygwin involved). (The fact that *building* Mono on Windows requires Cygwin is coincidental here.)

Don't do that, it will not work properly. But maybe you only had that mixup in the beginning?
