Components in the online-desktop package
Currently the online-desktop subversion module contains a number of components.
The Online Desktop session differs from the traditional GNOME session in the following ways:
OnlineDesktop/Sidebar is started by default
- Firefox is started by default
- Pidgin is started by default
- Bottom panel configuration contains sidebar toggle, task list, clock, and tray area
The web login driver is a small daemon which is intended to solve the problem of logging in multiple times to web-based services. Essentially, it watches passwords which are entered into Firefox, and notifies other components of the desktop like Pidgin and sidebar widgets.
Pidgin D-BUS plugin
Adds a new D-BUS interface to Pidgin which addresses design flaws in the default API.
Mailto handler script
This script is intended to handle mailto: links by using your preferred web mail service, but it is not yet complete.
