#2434 closed enhancement (wontfix)

replace Sugar-specific activity startup notification protocol with XDG startup notification

Reported by: sascha_silbe Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Major Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS:
Bug Status: New


By replacing our custom startup notification protocol with the XDG startup notification protocol we make it easier to interoperate with Sugar. It means one thing less to implement when modifying existing applications to run under Sugar (i.e. as an activity).
It's also a step towards better integration of non-Sugar ("legacy") applications.

FWIW, we don't need to change anything on the activity side: GTK already automatically handles the "launchee" side as long as at least one window gets opened and startup notification doesn't get explicitly disabled on that window.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Integration with "plain" X applications hasn't really improved in the last few years. We are moving towards a web based toolkit. I don't think this is worth the effort at this point. Still patches welcome etc.
