xfce4-settings 4.10 Roadmap

[FINISHED] Rework the settings editor

Make the settings editor easier to work with.

Difficulty: Easy

[FINISHED] Make Settings Dialogs Netbook Friendly

A couple of dialogs are quite big, we should make sure they fit properly on netbook screens, so say a maximum size of 800×500 pixels. This will imply work on xfwm4's settings dialogs too.

Because pluggable dialogs are enabled now, this shouldn't be a problem on any screen setup.

Completed: 100%

Difficulty: Easy

[FINISHED] "Solidify" the Keyboard Shortcuts

People have reported a lot of problems with the new keyboard shortcuts system. Apart from fixing these issues, I think we should also implement proper .Xmodmap support. Consider a port to libkeybinder if we require gtk >= 2.20.

[FINISHED] Improve the Pointer Settings

In the end we should support device properties. The device property handling (general, for all kinds of properties) is implemented in xfsettingsd. Specific synaptics and wacom settings have been added in xfce4-mouse-settings.

Completed: 100%

Improve multi-head configuration

Add visual preview of the current configuration with possibility to drag&drop the monitors to edit it. Also add advanced settings like gamma correction.

[FINISHED] Easy themes installation

Currently, users have to extract themes to ~/.icons/ or ~/.themes/ which is not exactly straightforward and not easy to discover. We should provide an easy way to install new themes. A good UI will have to be found: GNOME does this by allowing to drag&drop tarballs to their 'Appearance' window but this is also hard to discover.

Difficulty: Moderate

[FINISHED] Merge xfsettingsd and xfce4-settings-helper

Because xfsettingsd in the beginning was part of the xfconf package it moved directly to the xfce4-settings package. However this means on a normal Xfce desktop, always 2 daemons are running to handle the settings. To avoid this we're going to merge xfce4-settings-helper in xfsettingsd (because we like the name better).
