This may have been asked before, if so, I apologize...
Is there a wxWindows or GTK+ port of the front end to linux?
Even Tk, or perl/Tk would work too.
If not, want some help?

There's an extremely limited and little maintained (and I'll bet even
less used) Tk front end in the source tree. It's not exactly a model

We can crank Linux binaries of the realbasic front end that we ship for
Mac on Linux. I'd much rather pool efforts on that one. It's progressed
I've never published such a binary becuase RB for Linux has been pretty
broken in the versions I originally looked at, but it seems to be more

I have had good success running GPSBabel+ under RH with the Quick
window. Functionally it works just fine. It needs some cosmetic
adjustments. The Advanced window is another story. I have some time
off over the next couple of weeks. I'll work on it a bit.
And for those who would be interested in helping with a Linux port, RB
for Linux is free.

I should add some shots of the Advanced window. Good idea.
