The module sends messages which the theme displays. Thus, the
module requires a theme with an implemented edj script to be
Currently EFL 1.26 includes a basic text label for this...
Usage is recursive...everything under the window is included.
Rudimentary, as usual...please do something pretty...

This is currently using libinputs gesture recognition. And offers a
config screen to setup new gestures.
1. No default gesture bindings are setup
2. When libinput is not available the module is not going to be loaded,
and nothing is recognited.+
3. Only swipe gestures are recognized yet.
4. For now, you are required to be part of the input group, otherwise we cannot
get the libinput events. (See Todo 1)
5. The visual representation is not really good. In terms of UI, it is
visually showing a value coming from left to right, which is
indicating a direction, which is not always the direction of the
gesture, which is kind of bad. More improvements needed here.
Some things that still can be done:
1. The whole libinput things should be handled by elput, either with the
input group hack, or logind, or simply by root. The ideal idea would
be that e_sys is creating the elput context, which also listens for new
devices etc.. When all this is done, and it recognizes a new device, it
can simply sent a message from e_sys to e, that there is some new
device, with a opened fd. (However, this all needs to be locked up in a
way that e_sys cannot be abused)
new feature - polkit auth agent support partly in core (need to have
the pam setuid root auth tool respond via dbus) and partly a module
(the agent dbus protocol handling and setup as well as auth gui). this
took me a while even with all the docs to work out how polkit works...
it was really fussy and its data structs are an extra pain in the butt
to craft with eldbus, but i managed it. not everything is supported
but the core basics are there and this can be built on.
right now the gui is really basic, but does the job.
bluez4 support is now basically dead. nothing ships it anymore. bluez5
is a new api that is rather different so new code. also a new gui with
more complete features etc.
not everything is done as i'd like. need:
1. many more icons for device types (60-70 maybe?)
2. a few specific custom icons for some action buttons (like
3. icons for group headers
4. gadget status - the gagdte itself displays zero status. it's a
button to display a popup. that's all.

find_program() did not detect the eldbus-codegen binary in a given
prefix. Which is a situation we have on Jenkins builds. Make it an
option that can be set like we already do with edje_cc.
If there is a more meson-like approach to this I do not know feel free
to enlight me.
