I will have to wait till gnome-music gets stabilized to write its help. In the mean time my mentor Ekaterina Gerasimova (kittykat) suggested me to work on gedit (GNOME text editor)or evince (Document viewer). I simply typed the command jhbuild build gedit in the terminal. I could successfully build gedit 3.12. As its user interface has undergone a huge change its help will have to be updated accordingly.
When I run the command jhbuild run gedit, a new window opened as shown below in the screeshot.
Yes, It is a screen shot for gedit 3.12. A brand new, cool and a simplified look. The gedit’s new avatar does not include File, Edit, View, Search, Tools and Documents menus. Instead it has buttons to open, create and save files and all the other important functions are included in the gear icon button as drop down list. I am wondering can I use mouse to perform cut-copy-paste. It could be very difficult for new users as they may not know the keyboard shortcuts for cut-copy-paste. Our documentation help can reduce this tension to a great extend. 🙂 UI for new version and the older version of gedit could be easily compared with the image below:
whatever are the differences I am enjoying updating the help for gedit’s new UI.
