BX PRO 5.0, the leading GUI Builder for Motif, is now available for beta
This beta test release *only* supports Red Hat 5.1+ (5.0 does not
work!). Support for S.u.S.E. and Slackware are forthcoming.
This is a large download (~20mb), so it is suggested that only those
with a speedy internet connection participate. The current software will
expire February 28th. Before it expires, a final beta release will be
made available with a later expiration date.
BX PRO is built from the same sources as our versions for Sun, HP, IBM,
SGI, et. al. and includes:
- Builder Xcessory: GUI Builder
- ViewKit: C++ Framework for Motif written by Doug Young
- EPak: Collection of 31 advanced user interface widgets
Full documentation is available online at http://linux.ics.com
Motif is *not required* to run Builder Xcessory. And as long as you do
not use ViewKit or EPak widgets, it is reported that the generated code
works with LessTif. (We are especially looking for feedback from LessTif
users during the beta test). However, to use the widgets provided by
ViewKit or EPak, you will need a Motif library derived from the OSF
sources. MetroLink Motif is recommended, but others should work.
- Red Hat Linux 5.1+
- 100MB disk space for full install
- 32MB RAM
- OSF Motif (for ViewKit and EPak)
