Alternative for BIG programs - nl2stk - 01-19-2012 03:44 PM

Sad but true, some programs requires a lot of Gnome or KDE (qt) dependencies).
That's not exactly light, and you could ask yourself if it's worth it.
So I thought it would be handy to share alternatives :]

A good example is a recipe manager, I count 3 options in Ubuntu Gourmet for Gnome, another one for KDE (qt alert!) and one in the French language.
Since most recipes are in the meal-master format and alternative is to use Mealmaster for MS-DOS in DosBox (dosbox is in the Delicate repos). It might not be the most prettiest solution, but if it works?
Mealmaster can be found at: http://episoft.home.comcast.net/~episoft/
