GNOME AppData status page

Hi all,

I've uploaded a page with the AppStream metadata for Fedora 22 --
quite a few GNOME applications are missing easy-to-add things like
desktop keywords and some are missing HiDPI icons. It's awesome so
many GNOME apps are shipping AppData and I'm hugely grateful for that,
so we're really polishing things up now.

The page is here (warning 964k HTML page!), and is updated nightly:
https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/screenshots/f22/matrix.html

I'd appreciate it if you could have a look there and check your
application is green. If there are any false-positives or missing
applications then please let me know. I'm going to fix up the
applications I maintain now. Thanks!

GNOME 3.15.3 tarballs due

Hello all,

Only a quick reminder in case you missed this:

Tarballs are due on 2014-12-15 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.15.3
unstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which
were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule
so everyone can test them.  Please make sure that your tarballs will
be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that
will probably be too late to get in 3.15.3. If you are not able to
make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late,
please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll
the tarball for you!

For more information about 3.15, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.15
page:

Initial 3.16 Target Bugs

Hi all,

As promised, here is an initial list of 3.16 target bugs. These are
being maintained by the Release Team and me, and will be used as the
basis of the 3.16 blocker list.

For this initial round, we're focusing on the most annoying bugs, on
presenting content nicely, and making sure that we have a good out of
the box experience. Some maintainers will need help getting these bugs
fixed before the next release, so please consider helping out.

I'll try and post regular updates as the list evolves, but you can
also follow along via Bugzilla [1].

Thanks,

Allan

Availability of action when using ActivateAction

Hi,

In Maps I have implemented sharing of locations. So that I can share a
location to Weather and Clocks. I do this by using the
org.freedesktop.Application.ActivateAction method.

(cast of the functionality:
https://bug728117.bugzilla-attachments.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=291168)

For Weather I activate 'show-location' and for Clocks I activate
'add-location' with my location
as a parameter.

Right now I determine if the application is available for sharing by
checking if I can get an g_desktop_app_info for the APPID.

The problem is I don't know how to check if the actual action is
implemented. For Clocks I added the action at the same time that I
added the functionality to Maps. So if a user has a newer version of
Maps than Clocks, Maps will happily say that you can share to Clocks
but the action will silently fail. If we treat the release of GNOME
apps as one joint release this is not a big big issue since having
3.16 of Maps would mean that we expect the user to have 3.16 of Clocks
as well.
But it would feel better for me if there were some way for me to
verify that the action is there.

On Irc Ryan suggested using the Implements= key of the desktop file.
But what interface should I use? Implements=share-location? And then
check for that interface in Maps?

Taquin

Hello,

Looking at the screenshot
 <at> https://wiki.gnome.org/ThreePointFifteen/Features/Taquin /
https://people.gnome.org/~mcatanzaro/gnome-taquin.png

the start over button there is a bit odd / out of place.

Would't it be better on the left side of the window close button?

Qt programs in GNOME allowed?

Hello guys,

If there is some Qt program out there that integrates into GNOME libs
like gvfs, gsettings,gmenu and follows the GNOME Interface Guidelines
would it be possible to get included into GNOME?

GNOME/GTK App Patterns

Hello all,

Writing here to check if anyone is working on anything similar atm..

Right now I'm experimenting with Material Design in my own desktop,
and it occurred to me the same problem will manifest there as currently
exists within GTK applications.

I remember talking to Allan Day about patterns in applications before.
Essentially it would simplify the creation of "apps" by using standard
patterns, such as for selection, content, etc.

I first encountered this problem when trying to emulate the look of
gnome-tweak-tool. Part of this problem was solved by the introduction
of GtkSidebar, however the overall look requires tweaking, by using
a GtkSizeGroup, a layout and some custom CSS to get it working.

In my mind, it seems simpler that a gtk call to create a predefined
pattern could be used instead, defined in an enum of currently supported
patterns. These could easily be implemented using GTK templating.

My other thought on this would be to make it extensible, allowing
custom implementations of these patterns at runtime, possibly
via an environmental variable or configuration file. This would allow
custom desktop vendors to provide their own look n feel for these
common patterns, enabling greater integration in their respective
desktops, while following standard patterns that could greatly
simplify the implementation of apps.

Its not too hard to imagine a generic pattern interface, with

gnome-control-center - Adding natural scrolling support for mouse

Hi,

My name is Diego Giagio, I'm a software developer and this is my first email to this list. I want to contribute a patch to gnome-control-center to add support for natural scrolling to mouse devices (currently there's support for natural scrolling on touchpads only).

I've done some research and I found out that a good way to implement this would be to use evdev's X11 driver property "Evdev Scrolling Distance" in a way similar to what's already implemented for touchpads, thus reusing some already written code.

Since this patch would involve changing the Mouse & Touchpad settings user interface, I'm linking two screen shots[1][2] with the current and suggested interfaces. I'm basically moving the "Natural scrolling" checkbox from "Touchpad" to "General" pane as it's related to both mouse and touchpad. Another way of doing that is to add another checkbox with the same label on the "Mouse" pane.

I'll be happy to hear your thoughts so I can start working on this.
Thanks.
