Yes, the window manager cannot open any windows that are handled by the window manager. In the context of GTK+, that means that you can only open GtkWindows of type GTK_WINDOW_POPUP from mutter/gnome-shell. So as far as I can see, your options are delegating the file chooser to an external process (like `zenity --file-selection`) or indeed reimplement a file chooser in gnome-shell. (A word of advise: I'm not very excited about the latter option, so you will need very strong buy-in from the GNOME design team to convince me to accept it) Cheers, Florian _______________________________________________ gnome-shell-list mailing list email@example.com https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-shell-list
