Progress report

I've got a basic working shell going.

I'll make another report when there's been sufficient progress. Don't forget, I'm open to ideas and suggestions, as well as still not being convinced about the name (Touchwood, with a toad for an icon), so if you have a name suggestion then that's most welcome.

Cheers.

That looks really good so far on both dark and light themes. Could I be a bit cheeky though and ask how the program's label is presented for the titlebar to display? What I mean by this is did you set this explicitly or is it read from some config file? The reason I ask this is that sometimes incorrect program names show in the titlebar, in the course of my experimentation.

You can be cheeky, several others have been today :)

Code: Select all

#include "mainwindow.h"
#include <QApplication>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    QApplication a(argc, argv);
    MainWindow w;

    w.setWindowTitle("Touchwood");
    w.show();
    return a.exec();
}
I use a non-translatable string and explicitly set it in main().

That looks really good. Would fit in well with my KDE theme too.

Also, thanks for your previous post; sorry meant to reply before. Busy on here, isn't it!
