I’m using openSUSE 11.2 GNOME, and when I start Virtualbox and try to add the virtual hard disk I see it opens the KDE style file browser. I know its QT based application but if I use same version in Ubuntu or Fedora it opens the GTK file browser also its look&feel and behavior is not good in openSUSE GNOME.
Does anybody know, why its different in openSUSE gnome compare to Fedora or Ubuntu?
The VirtualBox GUI is QT based. This shouldn’t cause problems. I haven’t used VB in the distros you mention, but it’s possible they’ve provided a GTK-based frontend.
Well I know its QT based and there is no GTK front-end for VirtualBox, but there is a big time difference between opensuse version and Fedora version for GNOME.
I have used Virtual Box in Fedora and don’t recall it being any different, mind I was using kde even there.
It shouldn’t affect how well it performslol!
Caf is right, there shouldn’t be any performance issues. What’s the guest OS? Is it the same as on Fedora and Gnome? Where are you finding the time lapse?
Well there is no performance issue, I’m talking about the look & feel. I use openSUSE Gnome (no KDE) on one of my computer and Fedora on another and default is Gnome. When I install VirtualBox on openSUSE (GNOME) it uses KDE style file open box whereas on Fedora it opens Nautilus File Browser also sometime I feel rendering issue on openSUSE that I really cant explain, but file browser is definitely different.
