Multiple questions (font rendering, GUI, file system)

Postby pawelk » 2013-12-28 14:58

Hello

I have a few questions to you, first, what if i wanted to totally redevelop the font rendering system in Debian so it looks similiar to lets say OS X ? and so it works for whole system, like fonts in browser, in top menu bar etc.
I have no idea where to start so some tips would be nice.

Example;

Image

2) is it possible to redevelop GUI so every program looks similiar (like its made on Mac) , i dont really like the look of ALL Linux distros, and i dont know if the reason is that this is so hard to develop?

3) is it possible to change the file/partition system in Linux somehow, so its much easier to handle for a beginner user? Like in OS X you dont have to create swap partitions etc, you just create partition, format it and install on it.

Thank you in advance

It doesn't look like OS X at all, i guess you have never used it.

Why do I need to use it? I haven't used many things. Another multiple question:
5. Is it possible to prevent Mac developers from using open source for their proprietary modifications?

Is it possible to make a Mac OS X Maverick system look, perform, taste and smell like debian with KDE?
I gotta try!

Anyway, I want some cotton candy, I miss the feeling of sticky fingers... it reminds me of childhood.
How can I configure my debian system to make it give me back my youth?

If you want OS X, install it. Google hackintosh for more info.

Similar yes. Identical, no. Google qtcurve for more into.

Oh, BTW... you aren't "entitled" to anything here. Trying to demand your answer on your terms is a suboptimal strategy.

Oh don't worry. No problem. If you want " OS X look", here we go: http://www.apple.com/ca/osx/?cid=wwa-ca-kwg-mac-com

I have never said i want to copy OS X, OS X look was just an example.

I want to know how is it possible to completely change the GUI, like font rendering, changing the windows look etc.

And i dont mean installing some cheap looking themes, i want to know what define how programs windows look etc.

Ok, I know what you're up to, but I'm gonna pretend you are not, and I'm gonna answer to you seriously.

The point is that what you are asking is not something like "how do I change a light bulb?" that can be answered by something as simple as "you switch off the powerline, unscrew the old one, screw the new one on, turn the powerline on, flip the switch and enjoy the light!".

What you are asking is more like "How do I build light bulbs, how do I make them with different shapes and wattage, how do I craft the glass and the other components, how do I build lamps over them and entire electric systems and the houses these systems are into?".

You understand that even if your question didn't smell like a blatant attempt at stirring emotions, answering would really require starting from "It's a warm summer evening in Ancient Greece...".

If you really want to do that, you will have to study hard, because is not just a matter of someone telling you which is "the setting for that".
You are looking at ways to do a complete overhaul of the GUI (and "which one" would also change everything) and possibly the system as if it just required flipping a few switches.

These are things that you cannot do without, sorry I have to say it, reading a lot of ****** manuals. A lot.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I go back to my cotton candy.

Take care.
