GNOME TODO

Below is a list of things we would like to have but due to time constrains haven't gotten around to. There might also be other issues involved like software written with linux udev for example.

Task

Notes

Contact

Status

mate-power-manager

port the backlight support to FreeBSD. The code is based on linux /sys.

{o}

FreeBSD volume monitor for gvfs

Add a "light-weight" volume monitor to gvfs to replace the hal volume monitor.

{o}

gvfsd-trash

starts monitoring mount points, thus making them unmountable. This is actually a issue in glib's monitoring code.

{o}

framework improvements: plist

Turn gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders/gio-guerymodules/others? plist @exec/@unexec lines in @keywords like @glib-schemas

{o}

Switch MATE to GTK+ 3

Build MATE against GTK+ 3. Our mate development repo has already a switch to enable the GTK+3 build. But this is mostly a upstream issue at this point. Please see MATE GTK+ 3 status page

Gnome ports that use /proc

*list is possible outdated* It is known Gnome ports need /proc mounted to work. Below is a list to keep track of these and perhaps in the future replace them with something more modern and that will works beter for FreeBSD. This is because our procfs only does a subset of what linux procfs does.

GNOME 1 leftovers Decommission

Coordinator: KoopMast

Progress: In progress

There are still some leftovers in the port that have relation to GNOME 1.

Remove gnome1 components from bsd.gnome.mk, and update the example to use GNOME 2 macros. Also update the gnome website to use GNOME 2 examples.

GNOME 1 ports, scheduled for removal

graphics/gdk-pixbuf

print/freetype

Not really gnome but still depricated upstream
