I think the idea was to do it in X11 native. Since he's making an
installer, the libraries available on the target machine cannot be
I'd use 'Xdialog', but that cannot be trusted either..

The bulk of the problem is designing the UI. The recommended way to do
this is to use some sort of GUI painter; Glade is the one I use for
GTK and Gnome, there's a similar one for Qt. Once you've done this,
all your program has to do is to load the UI, initialise any
components with dynamic content, attach callbacks to various trigger
components, and go.
The only UI I've dealt with non-trivially is GTK, which is pretty
straightforward to use and C based. I haven't used Qt, which is C++
That said, if you're used to wxWidgets, stick with it --- there are
GTK and Qt backends for it, and there's nothing like working in
something you know.
