I would really like to design for gtk-3.0, but I just didnt comprehend the Syntax yet. gtk-2.0 may have been Buggy, but it was much more comprehensive and easier most of the time. I hope, that there will be one gtk Kit remaining, so designing would become much more easier. As Long as gtk is a mess and qt doesnt Appeal to me, I am not going to spend my time on this Topic. Although I have so many Ideas - I just couldnt realise them yet!
I know what you mean.. I heard it so many times from themers .. I Never did themeing before. started not long ago so I don't have what to compare with.. I'm not even know what I'm doing, coding wise,I mean .. Just took the time to look at some other themes codes and red a lot of instructions on the net.. about engines and stuff. all the rest is hard work with trial and error all the way.. Funny as it sounds, I tend to understand the Gtk3 part better..
