Yes Pyside must be installed before guibuilder can start up correctly, if you let me know what distribution you use I can try to find more in-depth instructions for installing pyside for your specific set up. Once Pyside is installed guiBuilder should start up without issue.

I have released another issue to fix the bugs you found. I'm currently relying on the github issues page: https://github.com/timothycrosley/GuiBuilder/issues
but have only started the process of making others aware of this tool, so as you can see no issues as of yet - your testing has already been very helpful.
Thanks for your comment on the design! currently I have not found a good way to enable drag and drop into the main view - currently you must drag and drop into the tree, and can only select items for editing from the main view.

Thanks for finding this issue, It was caused by an incompatibility with the latest python version - and I have made a patch to fix the issue:
a simple pip install guibuilder --upgrade and you should be good.

It means alot to get encouragement from someone who has contributed several pieces of great art to KDE, as you have :).

I appreciate the time you took to comment; but am sorry you did not like my icons. I'm sure you realize though, that I can not please everyone :). When I started to post my icons over A year ago, I saw -- like you said -- only 2 major Icon designs. So I decided to create something different -- an icon-set that was simple enough not to distract the user, and cause too much noise -- but with enough detail to allow the user to instantly recognize the object the icon represents. I did not want to make an icon set to fit into a pre-defined mold. And so far the wonderful users of KDE have encouraged me to finish this icon set -- through high ratings, and a large # of downloads -- as long as this is the case I will do so.

If you right click on a folder->go to properties-> and then click on the current folder icon: you will see several variation of the folder icon(different colors and such).

I tried the download on 2 seperate connections and it worked on both. The download is hosted by sourceforge(which may have been down when you tried to download it, though this doesn't happen often).
Thank you for your concern :),

Thank you for your comment, I am working on a gnome version for my 0.5 release :). ~Timothy - Nov 13 2006
If you enjoy making icons just keep working at it, and you will get better. When I started out my icons were laughable:
(and thats just the oldest pic I can find, they used to be even worse!).
Heres a few things that have helped me:
1.Before I draw a difficult icon I sketch it twice. The first time very rough, and then more detailed. It gives me a feel for how the icon should look.
2.I draw my icons really large (300x300). That way if theres small mistakes - they wont show up when I scale the image down.
3.I Look at real world objects for inspiration. If im drawing a Peice of paper, I have a piece of paper right on my desk - and I look at it constantly as a point of refrence.
4.If I make a mess of an icon I dont sweat it. I just leave and come back to it latter.
I am not near the best icon designer. Far from it. But hopefully these tips will help :).
Have a nice day

You are right the trash-bin looks very odd without a third-person perspective. This is probally becuase this is the perspective you see it from in real-life.
This was a style decision I made early on.I had noticed that most icon sets have icons in varying perspectives and decided to experiment making an icon-set in which all icons were in the same perspecive. I did this becuase I thought it would make the icon set look more clean.However I may have been wrong O:-).
I will however - finish this IconSet with this same style -- After which I may start a new one (with a normal looking trashcan perspective ;)).
Thank you for your adice :),

I have worked on it the last few days, and I believe that it is much more polished now -- though it is still not perfect.

I believe that you are talking about the 3 cover icons -- in which case you are right ;-). I had particular difficult makin1g these icons, and was glad I finished them at all.
I do however believe that if you look at the other icons, you will see that as a whole they are smooth and very symentricaly correct. though they still lack outline(I plan to add outlines to the smaller icons in the next release). - Sep 20 2006

I appreciate the time you spent giving your honest opinion :). You are right the interface is radical, it is different. Its not yet another clone of a clone of something else ;).
But think about this for a moment, I put 5 different users(ranging from completely computer illiterate to an average Windows user) infront of this application asked them if they could figure out how to create and edit a few contacts. They all had no problem, & said they loved the interface.
I put the same people infront of kontact, evolution, & outlook(2003 I think), every one of these people had trouble, some couldn't even figure out how to make a new contact, let alone edit it.
As far as it looking like a video game interface, thank you! Interface designers have needed to take a hint from them for awhile: the wii is alot easier then windows ;).
And also keep in mind this is a 0.1 alpha release ;), some widgets are just plain broken right now.
