      widgets at fixed positions and with fixed sizes, given in
      pixels. GtkFixed performs no automatic layout management.

At the moment, I didn't tested GtkFixed yet, but it seems very simple to use. I hope Glade gives a good support for it.

Anyway, my choice based
on my limited experience is Tkinter.  Here is a good place to

Ok, thank you.
