Front end on Unix


I would like to develop a user interface on Solaris. Can anybody throw some light on currently available software utilities/ packages..?

Thanks in Advance ..

# 2  
By 'user interface' I am assuming you mean some kind of window manager. Sun released a test version of GNOME 1.4 for Solaris 8 which is quite customisable, and might be a starting point. Check out and for more information.
# 3  
Just a mere fraction of what's available...

Sun SPARCstations running Solaris 2.x

X -- MIT X-Windows version 11 release 5
gnu -- GNU packages, such as gzip, gcc, g++, etc.
infosys -- information utilities (gopher, mosaic, etc.)
openwin -- SUN OpenWindows for Solaris 2.3
openwin3.4 -- SUN OpenWindows for Solaris 2.4
tcl -- TCL 7.3 & TK 3.6 (with X extensions)

I had created some widgets using Tcl/Tk.
Is it possible to convert those widgets in an Executable package.

I am working in HP Unix Workstation.

To be honest, I don't know. Smilie

Perhaps one of you Tcl/Tk guru's out there
can answer this... Smilie
