[Glade-users] Application Project - Gtk+/GNOME

   First, is there a reason why you are using Glade 2 instead of Glade 3 ?

Just to make sure you got your answers... from your first question...

Gnome vs. Gtk+: Gnome is a set of libraries formerly developed
as the gnome platform libraries and had some functionalities not
provided from the platform (gtk+), this is no longer really true,
and generally people preffer to stick to raw gtk+ for a higher level
or portability. Many projects are trying to eliminate use of the whole
libgnomeui bundle that drags in lots of depricated code and also
has a big impact on application load time.

Languages: User interfaces are built with libglade (or the new GtkBuilder),
dont fool yourself with generated code - there are little to no benefits of
using generated code, using libglade or builder you will only have a few
lines of code to write to load and run your interface.

Bindings to libglade are provided in pretty much every language that
gtk+ has bindings for.

Is that you mean?

GNOME is a Desktop Manager and Glade is a GUI Builder. GNOME is build using
GLADE and GTK+ Libraries.

Actually, we are developing an application for the OLPC. So I think it
uses GNOME environment, so will it better to use GNOME project rather than
Gtk+. But anyways we need to do the gtk+ programming,right. Or is there any
change in the coding part of GNOME project?

Its not using GNOME, OLPC is using XO-Sugar User Interface made using GTK

  This is more important to me - Is the coding in GNOME project similar to
the Gtk+ project?
If you need to make a thing working for the OLPC, you have to make it using
the GTK libraries. The language that I suggest is Python as it is more
widely used with other developments.

    Yes, I know that. The callback functions need to be written by us.
Here I mean that the code for the GUI is generated by Glade itself.

You are designing a User Interface using Glade, and code in a language. If
you are using Python, its PyGTK what you need.

So that is generated in C as per the widgets that are connected with some
signals & handlers no, ie what i mean, may be its not correct.....
For a software developed for OLPC, the best place to clarify your doubts
will be the sugar mailing list. (You need Sugar for testing the software for
OLPC : http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Category:Installing_Sugar)
