          With KDE desktop GTK is much slower, this depends on

          which window manager you use.

          Good work with f4l!
          I am very lucky to read, that there is such a project. Me and some of my friends were waiting a long time for this, but i was a little bit disappointed, that you use the qt-lib and C++. I personally dislike C++ and i think the qt-lib is much slower then GTK and it's a bit blown up. Maybe you'll decide to use C and GTK one day. I would be glad to hear that. I do a lot of tests with your software on my boxes and hope, a can help you one day.

          Anyway, thanks for your work and good luck with your project.
