I'm writing a desktop. I already know the basics of Qt and GTK+ through Python but I don't understand how to display the finished Desktop. How do you make it the root window of a Window Manager, or is there a method for displaying the desktop I'm not familiar with?
There has been an impressive change in tools and techniques which writers can use for the good. It is easy to locate one (or more) for individual needs. Whether it is writing a novel, graphics applications or tutorials, these writing tools can serve multipurpose. Writing skills can gain unmatched dimensions on integrating with these advanced techniques.
I am looking for common functions for writing/reading key=value configuration files.
Perhaps something like the WritePrivateProfileString() functions for modifying .INI files used by Windows.
I specifically want to edit .desktop and .directory files as described by http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/desktop-entry-spec
So I need functions in some (C/C++) that conforms to the freedeskto
