First thank you for hard work on Wayland/X.
As I understand, there is no window placement on the client side in Wayland.
Because of that, a desklet application can't place its desklets on the
desktop. Currently in Weston, they are automatically placed (randomly, each
time at a different position).
How is this going to be addressed by Wayland ?
Another similar problem is that when receiving a Configure event, the
position is not in the event. So for instance in GTK the coordinates are
This is problematic, because the application might want to display things
differently depending on where it is.
For instance, on right-click, the desklet would pop the menu above it if
it's in the bottom half of the screen, and vice-versa.
It seems that xdg-shell is to bring answers to these kind of
desktop-specific problems, so is this planned to be added in this interface
