[GNC-dev] Customizing GnuCash's Appearance and the Wiki

GnuCash - Dev mailing list
Hello,

I am hoping to clean up the FAQ section on customizing GC’s appearance, but I need a little background information first. My hope is to gather appearance customization into two separate pages. The first has already been created for GTK3 (which is appropriately named “GTK3”). I would like to think it should be possible to create another page for customization prior to GnuCash version 3 called “GTK2.” So, my first question is: is it accurate to say that all customization for earlier versions of GnuCash used GTK2? I certainly don’t want to mischaracterize the tools.

Once I have determined this, I plan to move information to these pages, and strip down the FAQ to refer readers to the appropriate page based on their GC version. Thus, the question on register colors and the question on the gtk resource file will have their information pushed into the two GTK pages.

Cheers,
David

It’s not quite true but it’s close enough: GnuCash started using Gtk2 with GnuCash 2.0.

John,

Thanks. Given that we have decreed that the wiki should cover current versions (which are defined as 3.x, 2.6.x and sometimes 2.4.x), then my assumption is true enough for wikiland.

David
