What distro do you have ? (I assume Debian or similar)
It looks just fine on a MDK 10 here.
Anyway GTK2 is in plans :)
Lazarus has already been compiled with GTK2 but it's too unstable to be used yet, be patient ;)
The future must be... Fast and OpenSource so...
Think Open and Lightning Fast!

Hmmm... BTW, are there any changes in the Lazarus' GUI planned? :) IMHO IDE as good as Laz deserves a better GUI ;)

mikiwoz,  what do you have in mind ?
Most users seem to be happy with the current interface.

Oh, well, you know... ;)
Just some minor polishing, changing the button images, and so on. Nothing important, really.
I have a friend, a Delphi freak (such as myself until I found Laz) who is just trying to find every stupid little disadvantage of Laz.
Well, everyone must agree, that compared to Delphi Laz is quite an ugly duckling... I was just wondering if, as GTK2 support is being added, the change into the swan can start. :)
Actually I am quite happy with the interface too; nevertheles... Ah, how I wish I knew the art of computer-art... ;)

I've compiled Lazarus with GTK2 and it looks much better. Here it is with GTK1:

And here it is with GTK2:

In particular, the text rendering in GTK2 is much better. And it's nice to have a GUI consistent with all my other apps. But like Lightning said, the Lazarus+GTK2 combination is still quite unstable.

I think it also depends a bit on what theme you use. In my case the differences are not that big.

What theme do you use? Can you show me screenshots of GTK1 version and GTK2 version? Email them to me if you like: cragwolf AT yahoo DOT com
