So since ive upgraded my OS to Ubuntu 12.04 I haven’t been actively working on the
project. However recently I came back to it and found that since the upgrade my
toolpalette has become a Ninja. You can’t see it but it does exist.
I don’t know is this a bug in GTK3 or what but I concluded it could be the way the
toolpalette was developed. If im to be honest the code was quite hack-like but back
then it was necessary.
Now the toolpalette is finally supported in Glade, so once I figured out some things
the toolpalette was created in the .glade file. The code used previously has been
removed and this will now be used by default.
As a result of all this we have the following advantages:
- About 200 lines of code have been removed.
- PhotoFiltre LX starts up faster.
- The toolpalette has proper Gnome style tooltips. (inherits from your theme)
- I have more control over the toolpalette appearance.
