Xfdesktop porting plan:

Branch: http://git.xfce.org/users/eric/xfdesktop/log/?h=gtk3 Feel free to request commit rights if you'd like to push patches to help with porting.

Port xfdesktop/settings

  • Completed: 10% - it compiles and runs.

Port xfdesktop/src with –disable-desktop-icons

  • This way the focus is just on the parts that render the background
  • GdkPixmap is gone
  • Completed: 0%

Port the rest of xfdesktop/src

  • The iconview is a custom widget, replace it with a GtkGrid packng the icon and a GtkLabel? Or use cell renderers?
  • Completed: 0%

Additional items:

  • Switch to using GNotification and drop libnotify dependency
  • Switch to GDBus and drop libdbus dependency
  • Remove the old fallback code for supporting old Gtk/Glib versions
  • Use Garcon-gtk for the right-click menu and drop our own custom version
  • Completed: 0%
