Graphical Scripting with Kommander

Post date: April 13, 2005, 02:04 Category: Programming Views: 3458 Comments
Tutorial quote: Kommander is a simplified and modified version of Qt Designer which lets you add scripting abilities to the dialogues it makes. It saves the result as a designer UI file which can be run with Kommander Executer. It is the easiest way to make simple programmes, I like to think of it as graphical shell scripting.

Konstuct is a program to download and install KDE from sources. This tutorial takes us through using Kommander to make a graphical program to configure and run Konstruct.
