Lojban and Hacking

Filed under
Misc

I had recently discovered the Lojban language while I was surfing the net. The characteristics of this language greatly appealed to me as a debater and so, I decided to heavily invest my effort into studying this language. Consequently, I came across two free software tools that could aid my study of Lojban: KVocTrain and Mnemosyne. These are two excellent programs that definitely have a place my studies.

These two programs are functionally adequate, they both do everything I would need to help me learn Lojban. However, I have a problem with the look of these programs; they are both written to target the Qt3/KDE3 platform and so, the look of these programs are inconsistent with the look of the rest of my GTK+ based Xfce system. At first, I thought I could install QGtkStyle to get a more consistent look. Upon installation, I realised that QGtkStyle wouldn't work on programs that target Qt versions older than Qt4.4 .

As I have a right to freedom, I know that I don't have to tolerate this minor inconvenience...
