I'm working on an open source openvpn client for linux with a gtk gui and some cool features i have in mind. I wrote most of it's daemon and now i'm going for the gui. But,... the problem is..., i'm not a ui dev, so every ui i make is awful. I feel like i'm either stuck or have to choose one of my bad ui designs. what do you think i should do? how can i get some help?

    @Charon92 Haha. That's a pretty good idea.

    Have you ever heard a Linux user complain that an app has an ugly UI?

    Slap something together and ship it. If it's got legs, someone will eventually clean it up.

    As long as it has a good CLI interface, no one is going to give a shit. I've opened up god awful UI's and went for the CLI and they had an even shittier CLI implementation.

    Besides, i think i remember reading somewhere that over 50% of linux is ran headless/without a GUI, so there you go.

    @platypus Good point. I hadn't thought about it.
