The stuff below talks about the "core" functionality. You can also extend the Deskbar with your own "Handlers" or plug-ins - look at DeskbarApplet/Extending.
Also see our dev Roadmap: DeskbarApplet/RoadMap
Getting the Code
We're in the GNOME git module "deskbar-applet". For anonymous access:
git clone git://git.gnome.org/archive/deskbar-applet
If you have a developer login (commit rights) use:
git clone ssh://ACCOUNT@git.gnome.org/git/archive/deskbar-applet
substituting ACCOUNT for your login. See Git/Developers for more details.
Building, Installing, Running
It should be as simple as
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
You can also test it uninstalled by running
in the source directory, this will create the search bar in a standalone window.
- In IRC-land, we are at #deskbar on Gimpnet (irc.gimp.org)
- Use drag and drop where applicable. Drag file hits into Nautilus windows to copy or move files fx.
- Use galago python bindings for IM integration
