If you just want to enter a couple a Greek characters, I would find their Unicode character number and use Unicode composition. For example: U+03D0 GREEK BETA SYMBOL Ctrl+Shift+u+0+3+d+0+<Enter> ϐ

If you are trying to learn Linux, don't use Cygwin. Cygwin is primitive compared to modern Linux distributions. The Cygwin package manager (setup.exe) is horrible, and has needed a new UI for ages. Cygwin is different enough that you will spend a lot of time troubleshooting silly issues. Installing Xwindow and QT apps on Cygwin can be difficult and a waste ...

Simply add the Greek layout to your keyboard layouts. Then add the "Keyboard Indicator" applet to one of your panels and use that to switch between layouts. It seems to work for me.

Check QGtkStyle, a project to create a GTK+ layer for Qt-based applications (like KDE) running on GTK2-based desktops (like Gnome). There are other ideas and scripts in the discussion on this topic at Ubuntu Brainstorm: Idea #1744: GNOME themes should affect Qt themes, and more of them in this discussion Idea #1714: GNOME QT integration (and the numerous ...

If your distribution doesn't provide Qt 5.3, Notepadqq expects it to be located at ~/Qt/, in your home directory. So, when you run ./qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.3.0.run and it asks where you want to install Qt, use the path /home/<your_username>/Qt. A symlink will work too. By the way, you might want to use the currently latest Qt version (5.3.2): ...

I think to install PyQt4, first of all you need sip. Information can be available from the riverbank computing website. or if you are using Ubuntu/debian, you can get easily from the repositories : sudo apt-get install pyqt4-dev-tools

KDE doesn't use registry tools such as gconf everything done by system settings, but you can try kwriteconfig to set global environment for KDE applications. But I'm not sure either. You can read Hidden KDE Options and Features tutorial.

You can have both Windows and Linux on the same disk, by using Linux as an application within Windows. This way, you don't disturb Windows at all. I suggest the Wubi linux distribution, since it's a variant of the very popular and easy to use Ubuntu Linux. Wubi allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu as any other Windows application, in an extremely ...

Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework. It includes a cross-platform class library, integrated development tools and a cross-platform IDE. Using Qt, you can write web-enabled applications once and deploy them across many desktop and embedded operating systems without rewriting the source code. Source and sdk can be downloaded here

It would probably be distro specific. In ubuntu you can download by typing in a command line or using synaptic search for qt-designer sudo apt-get install qt3-designer qt4-designer Try googleing for the qt-designer rpm or deb to get a distribution specific download which will sort out dependencies for you.

I would advise to create a local portfile for qt4-mac-devel and add your changes as a patch that is applied during the build process. Create a local portfile repository: howto Copy the qt4-mac-devel portfile directory (a directory called "qt4-mac-devel" (path "/opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/ports/aqua/qt4-mac-devel/") containing ...

Your options are pretty much twofold: Have your system administrator install the libraries in the "normal" location for you, or check the documentation for how to install them in a directory to which you have write access (probably under your home directory) and then link your application against that.

If you have uploaded your shared-object (.so*) libraries to your home directory, modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable[1] might work. On my system, this variable is empty, which indicates that I would add /lib, /usr/lib, and any other default system library paths to this variable first, like export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib/:/usr/lib:/home/user/lib ...

Getting a Linux system You could get an Linux live CD for Ubuntu or Knoppix and play around with it. That way you can start Linux from the CD without touching your current Windows system. The problem with that would be that your changes are not saved when you shut down. If you want that, perhaps install a Linux system to a USB drive and boot from there. ...

Sure. You can install Qt and Jack separately, but I wouldn't recommend that since they will probably have dependencies that you'd be missing. Instead, you can install Macports (http://www.macports.org) and then install QjackCtl from there. Pretty easy.

X as well as each widget toolkit has its own compose table. GTK+ gets its mostly from X, whereas Qt has its own mappings located... elsewhere. I'll update this when I find them.

I wouldn't expect any particular distribution to have the absolute latest versions of any package, unless it's a rolling distribution specifically based on Debian Unstable (sid). The newest packages usually get into Debian Unstable (sid) first. Ubuntu is based on Debian Testing, so is supposed to have more stable, better tested packages. Linux Mint (their ...

If you go up two levels, you can access later versions. http://download.qt.io/archive/qt/ If you go all the way up, you'll see official_releases. https://download.qt.io/

Generally in POSIX systems it is not true, that killing parent process also kills it's child. Especially if you use kill -KILL, after killing parent process child process became orphan processes. You can kill whole process group or search processes by parent pid before killing parent. In shell it can be done using: ps --ppid <parent_pid> In ...

Reliably killing a process tree is not a simple matter, there are a few gotchas, like: killing a parent doesn't typically kill its children killing by process group usually fails if the killer process is in the same process group because the killer is itself killed as well, typically before finishing its job identifying all descendants of a process is not ...

First of all openSUSE:Tumbleweed is the repo that will always contain what the openSUSE KDE packagers consider is the most stable version. There are other repositories that may contain later versions of kde but these are still under development/testing so shouldn't be considered stable. The manual way of doing this is by looking at patterns, In yast if you ...

Input methods and X have a long, complicated history. Story made short, on your machine Qt and GTK are using different X input methods. The KDE wiki has a page on getting both Qt and GTK to use the same input method (xim, in this case). tl;dr for Debian/Ubuntu-based distributions: sudo update-alternatives --verbose --install ...

Not sure if there is a way to get exactly what you want, but you can coerce both gnome & kde into using Qt by using QtCurve. Try sudo apt-get install qtcurve-kde4

This is specific to Opera, but you might want to try the qt4-linked version of Opera rather than the qt3 version the deb.opera.com repository provides. The qt4 version looks a bit better (the menus and widgets in particular), and thus not quite as out-of-place in a GNOME environment as the qt3 version. To get a hold of this version of Opera you actually ...

Qt Creator is available on the bottom-left corner of the Qt Downloads page. You will likely have to compile that from source if you want the 64-bit version. Use the -arch x86_64 flag or -cocoa flag, as advised at the Qt Labs Blog. Recompiling ports using the +universal variants would require uninstalling and reinstalling the ports in question, along with ...

Mhh .. it looks a bit like your program depends on Qt 3, not Qt 4.
