Some of the things (in very short form) that need to be done to E17...
(These are in no particular order)
* BUG: in general fullscreen needs work, cleaning and testing. dont allow
desktop switches for the desk a fullscreened window is on, nor allow windows
to be raised above the fs win etc. ie the app must seem to be entirely fs for
that zone.
* BUG: on font apply borders need to be adjusted for size changes
* BUG: font apply doesnt seem to keep working (edje problem?) unless you
* BUG: if i downclock my machine to like 400mhz (make it sloooow) or load it
down with lots of load and then hold down ctrl+alt+right for a while
windows on desktops vanish... there must be a race condition with a
map/unmap event and something else... they still are around in x- just e
hides them and never shows them again
fullscreen. is this correct?
* BUG: sometimes the mouse gets locked to a window with a mouse grab of some
sort in x (it gets the down event and not the up?) so e thinks its down but
it isn't - happens a lot in click to focus.
* BUG: maximised apps when e restarts are not recognised as maximised
* BUG: client windows list somehow doesn't unref its list of borders in the
free callback set on it. why? is this callback never called? or is the
data pointer on the menu object null for some reason?
* BUG: if you have 2 zones and you fill up zone 2 (right) mostly and then run
a big xev (xev -g 1280x1024) that wont fit it gets placed offscreen to the
right of zone 2
* BUG?: pager problems. Seems to loose or mess up windows sometimes.
* BUG?: xine's ui window/panel is under its video window when u go fullscreen
* add fullscreen support (e16 xvidmode or xrandr style)
* implement thses maximise/fullscreen modes:
Which of these should be different modes, and which should be options for
a mode? i think they all should be distinct actions of their own bound
to a key, button etc. which one of these the maximize button on a window
will execute should be a configuration value though :)
1. fullscreen (no border - resizes to default screen res). window is locked,
no mouse bindings work. any focus change out of thsi window will go out of
fullscreen mode
2. zoom (changes screen res to match window, or closest res thats bigger
than the window, centers it - no borders/title etc). window is locked, no
mouse bindings work. any focus change out of thsi window will go out of
zoom mode
3. maximise (only title is displayed - program fills the rest of the screen)
disable resize, shade, move etc. in this mode. iconify is ok.
4. maximise2 (maximise window up to the edge of panels, gadgets etc. -
disable all resizing and moving just like 1, 2 nd 3 (maybe make border
thinner to indicate this). disable stuff like 3.
5. expand (just resize window to fill the same space as 4. - but it still can
be shaded, resized, moved etc.)
6. fill (expand to the nearest window edge or screen edge)
for 5 and 6 u want to able to do this independently for width and height as
well as for both at once. for 1. & 2. if window max size (or aspect
adjusted size) is smaller that screen max size, fill in space in between
with black. for 3. we want to fill the inbewteen space with some theme
defined image data
* implement a better dialog for things like "do you want to do X - yes or no?"
* dialogs for generic contents too
* netwm window types and states need addressing (do special/appropriate things)
for each of them.
* netwm frame extents request (_e_manager_cb_frame_extents_request) needs
to properly choose the border based on client window properties.
* do something with the icccm urgency field hint
* different borders for non-resizable windows, shaped windows etc.
* break out ipc to set names for desktops (and get names/list them)
* some sort of gui display of a desktop name (in the pager?)
* window icons should be able to be chosen if e eapp icon overrides netwm
icon or the other way around.
* transients should have option to always follow parent
* actions to make current zone different (warp mouse to there)
* actions to make the current container different
* titlebar/border expansion/gadget panel for modules to put window widgets in
* break out desks x/y size config so you can have a different desktop size
per zone - right now there is a signle global (use this later as the default
for new/unconfigured zones)
* language packs: need to have a tool to load/setup a language pack (which
means .mo compiled files from a .po, an optional font and a config file that
specifies the locale and font) and then install the font(s) either as a user
or superuser, and the .mo in the system or a user locales dir.
* gadman gadget menu needs icons :)
* gadman edit mode for simple gadgets activate with a button bind (eg
alt+click on module like windows) or a pure key binding
* gadget containers (shelves?) using popups as well as in-line in a canvas
* add key input focus control for desktop modules
* finish off icccm support
* finish complete netwm support
* make the cursors an edje buffer canvas for changing cursor depending on
* different cursors for different parts of the screen
* add a "taskbar" module
* add cpu load module
* add a way to access "all" apps app dir
* ibar need to handle drop from other places (xdnd, drop from window etc.)
* dnd from pager to other pagers/ to desktop/ibox etc.
* ibar should enable user to select different dirs to view per bar and allow
new bars to be created or bars to be deleted
* ibar need to support label pop-ups
* ibar should support subdirs with pop-up icons...
* borders need to be able to change border theme on the fly by menu or app
* add window glueing <rephorm AT rephorm DOT com>
* add setup/install wizard to seed eap files etc. etc.
* support text and color classes
* add clientinfo pane/popdown for borders
* add sliders, radio and check buttons for clientinfo pane
* make xrandr support get rotation and store it
* add separate app menu bars at top of screen support
* add really nice "about" box with theme, authors credits list etc etc.
* "immortal" windows (e will not allow that window to be closed or will
refuse to exit as long as the immortal flags is set until it is unset to
stop users from doing silly things like logging out while important stuff
is happening in that window -a menu option for this woudl be nice)
* need to be able to remember client positons/etc.
* with remember need to be able lock in attributes so the app (or user or both)
cannot change them (eg this window is a fixed size and location - app cannot
ask for a new size or location)
* gui config tools for bg's, keybindings, etc. etc. etc.
* "control panel" app to launch the gui config tools
* make it possible to disable border buttons/actions (tell theme what is
* modules need config executables with proper widgets (sliders, check boxes,
radio etc. not massive menus)
* remove module config menus (make them part of the module control panel and
as separate executables)
* winlist should support place for window "screenshot" in list as well as
app icon
* winlist should in theory allow horizontal list layout not just vertical (set
by the theme)
* winlist could divide windows up into blocks - sub-lists within a container
pwer desktop (with stick windows considered to live on the "current" desk
when winlist starts)
* make it easy for modules to hook into ipc and extend it for themselves
* gadman needs some changes to virtualise the canvas/container the gadget
ends up in (eg in popups or border)
* perhaps we should split focus and "selected" windows. selected window is
what ocused is now and focus is something only affectinbg keyboard input. if
the focus window becoems another managed window it becoems the selected
window - otherwise click to focus or pointer focus will chose the selected
window that may get the focus if it allows it...
* module api needs to move label and icon to data file (.eap file?), not api
* make e17 re-locatable (ie use e_prefix.c stuff instead of #defined paths)
* ibar lamp needs short timer on mouse out for hide before hiding (and del
the time on mouse in)
* allow object paranoia to be a runtime option too
* tip/hint/suggestion dialog app (textblock etc.)
* add tooltips
* add locale and encoding fields to eapp files (to launch eapp in that
* add input method selector stuff to eapp - same as locale
* "run command" typebuffer thing
* icons should be able to be overidden from the theme (eapp and menu stuff
* setup configs for gnome and kde (as options) if they are installed (eg
run gnome-settings-daemon).
* check evas has eet support early on.
* pagers should be able to be configured to control more than the current zone
(select which zone they control)
* start module needs to have a way to alert users to "click here" and back
off alerting users as they learn what it is (over time)
* non opaque move/resize
* add window tabs (multiple clients in 1 border)
* add a button area expansion for borders ???
* add template button for expanded buttons ???
* maybe add systray module/support?
* add "osd" subsystem for things like volume controls on keybboards, etc.
that overlay the screen
* file icons on the desktop (people ask for it) - xdnd for these
* could speedup dropshadow's gaussian blurr with mmx and sse by doign 2 or 4
rows at once
* optimize clock theme (speed/cpu) (rotation in edje??? or evas???)
