Cross hair theme configuration

completed by: Cezar Mocan

mentors: Dennis Nienhüser

Your task is to create a configuration widget to choose alternative cross hair themes in Marble. The cross hair themes are available from an earlier Code-in task. Similar code for the compass plugin is available to get you started quickly, see

The following subtasks need to be done:

  • Setup a development environment for Marble, see
  • Apply this patch. It implements the configuration dialog for the compass item
  • Get the cross hair themes from here
  • If needed, use inkscape to resize them to a useful size (around 20x20 pixel)
  • Implement a configuration dialog for the cross hair plugin similar to the one for the compass plugin (see patch above)
