Make Geogebra look more native on Linux

A non-exhaustive list of nice to have features


- Honor Gtk style settings (instead of apparently forcibly overriding them https://bbs.archlinux.org/v...) for widgets and windows styles

- At least use the Gtk file picker (or better, a native file picker, e.g. on Plasma use kdialog)

- Same for the other common dialogs (at least for print)

Sorry, we won't be doing this. GeoGebra is open source, so feel free to submit a patch though.

Well, the widgets at least should be easy enough, AFAICT it's only a switch to pull at https://github.com/geogebra.... I wonder why the decision to use metal was taken, tough.

Hi,


to "pull the switch" you can run

geogebra --laf=system

on Linux. If you like the result, feel free to keep using it that way, but there is a lot of stuff broken in the system look on Ubuntu.


Cheers,
