Hi Stefan!

Both the interfaces will be present for 11.3 at least. So there is the
qt interface for you (not by default if you are a GNOME user, but you
can set it so).

Please don't. The GTK one was completely unusable for me the last time
I tried it accidentally (a year ago?).

I am very interested that you try out the yast2-gtk version from factory
or 11.3 M5 and let me know what you miss and how you would rather want
the interface. You can keep using the qt version as default and just for
the sake of testing try the gtk version and let me know. Let me know if
your experience is better than the last time you used it or worse.

As much as I hate to kill a nice flamewar: Yes, the experience really
is better (the last time, it did a big pacakge icon for every package,
leading to lots of wasted screen real estate and it did not display -
at least not easily found - details for each package).

So yes, it is really better and maybe I should keep away from zypper
for a few weeks and instead try it more often (to be honest - I have
been hardly using any yast2 software management module at all for the
last year, since zypper is even more user friendly than all that GUI

The only thing I can complain is the depressive dark black toolbar
theme, but maybe that's configurable somewhere. I simply did "su -;
yast2 --gtk". And I like the QT control center better, but that's
surely a matter of taste.

I believe the version coming with 11.3 will be much better than the
earlier ones, and if we can all help the developer with our useful
inputs, so much the better!

Yes, It is a huge improvement. Everything else would not be honest.

Have fun,

Stefan Seyfried
