The forms designer as supplied by caldera distros 2.2/2.3 and redhat 6.0/1 is slightly out of date missing some good bug fixes (and documentation).
If you are into C(++) programming and need a 'dialog box' gui interface for your applications, then fdesign, alias xforms, alias forms designer is the way to go.
Step 1) unload the existing installed xforms version 0.88 as follows
rpm -e xforms-devel-static-0.88-2
rpm -e xforms-devel-0.88-2
It is important to get these packages out of your system as KDE links will get confused with old vs new.
Step 2)download .089 from
or, from www.rpmfind.net
Step 3) extract the source in the 'traditional' manner
tar -zxvf bxform-089-glibc2.1.tgz
from the directory produced (xforms) type
the magic incantation is 'fdesign', you can make a link to this on your desktop and you are also advised to use the mime types for a clean browsing application.
