Is there any great diagramming tool for Linux?

The driver issue is unfortunately a bit of a chicken-and-egg game. Not as many people use Linux so vendors don't write Linux drivers so users don't use Linux as much. It usually takes the Linux community itself to write an open source driver for lots of hardware. I had a quick Google for your specific hardware as it happens and it can be made to work on Linux, but it requires more messing around than I think is necessary. The issue of the way Linux apps look and feel I think is down to two issues which I'll talk about separately. 1) Window managers and widget toolkits 2) The Linux community is comprised mostly of engineers, rather than designers. So for the first issue, the single biggest fundamental problem with the Linux ecosystem as a whole is an excess of choice. For any given thing you want to do (as a developer) there's a two dozen ways to do it on Linux, v.s. a much smaller number of ways on other platforms. And one of these things a developer might want to do is display dialogs, forms, buttons and other widgets. The problem is there's a dozen different widget toolkits. None of them compatible, all of them looking different. The two most common are known as GTK and Qt. Some Linux distributions try and deal with this by having matching themes for both, but this only partially alleviates the problem. There are other widget toolkits and t can't all be made to match. This can cause an environment that feels mismatched and ugly, lacking any consistency or finesse because everything is trying to be shoehorned into a subset of functionality supported by all of the systems being used, rather than fully going one way or the other as a global, Linux-community wide standard. As for the second issue, the Linux ecosystem is pretty difficult to contribute to if you're not a programmer. Someone who is very good at UX design would have an extremely hard time improving the user interface for an open-source application, partly because there's a good chance the UI is being built in code rather than being in a separate editable file (like you get with WPF on Windows or when using the XCode UI designer) - there's virtually nothing in the way of visual editors for applications on Linux. The result is that the user interfaces are built by engineers. T can build something that works, and that t personally can navigate because t know it, but unless t specifically consult a designer to improve it - chances are it's going to be on the 'functional' side rather than 'usable'.

Rearrange PDF Pages: All You Need to Know

As for the community side of things I haven't seen anyone who can make widgets work or that can have anyone who can improve them, so in terms of 'who' you should be following on the forums. If you really like the design language it is, and you want to develop apps for it, there's not a lot to go on but look for a few people that are active on the forums (with relevant knowledge and tools) and ask them about their particular widgets. Most of all, if the problem at hand is a widget, don't ignore it as a problem in and of itself. If you follow the right people and get a few answers then you may find out just how wrong the problem is, or whether what the community is doing is working. If you want the widget to look nice, but don't know how or don't.
