GTK+/QT QuickLink Patch

This patch adds a Quick Link (QL) feature to the GTK+1.2 and QT standard file selection dialog. You can store commonly used directories in your QL List, such as /mnt/cdrom or /home/user/mp3.

ATTENTION! This is still beta software! It may crash or corrupt your data or system!
It seems that many programs don't need a recompile to work with the new file selection dialog. If programs don't behave properly after you have patched GTK+, please try to recompile the program. If is does not work by then, please submit a bug report to the authors.

  2. go into the GTK+ source directory (e.g. /usr/local/src/gtk+-1.2.10)
  3. apply the patch: patch -p1 < /path/.../quicklink-gtk-1.2.10.diff
  4. now go on configuring GTK+ (see GTKs INSTALL for details)

It seems that many programs don't need a recompile to work with the new file selection dialog. If programs don't behave properly after you have patched GTK+, please try to recompile the program. If it does not work, please submit a bug report to the authors.
