At the Desktop Architects Meeting 3, beginning of December last year, Waldo
asked me if I could write a proposal for extending the XSETTINGS registry
I've written a small paper where I look at the Gtk+ and Qt settings and color
palettes to find where they overlap, and where the common subsets need to be
extended to be useful. The result is a proposed set of new settings keys for
the XSETTINGS registry.
The document is available here:
Just a couple of points I want to clear up:
* This document is intended as a basis for discussion.
* The proposed keys do not cover every conceivable setting. The idea is to
find a set of keys that will be useful when trying to integrate with the
* The Qt toolkit does not have support for the XSETTINGS mechanism. I'm
working on a prototype implementation for this (Disclaimer: This does not
mean that Trolltech has committed to adding XSETTINGS support in Qt. It's
just a prototype).
* I'm not a Gtk+ expert. If you are, your input is very welcome!
