Re: [Evolution-hackers] Issues in porting evolution mail client to directfb backend :Help Nedded.....

Hi ...

Thanks for your valuable insight regarding this issue.

As regard with the broken bonobo build..my make log /install log shows
no errors.n gets built smoothly.. and even evolution runs but with
many things missing in the UI as mentioned earlier...
So i understand that this strikes out the possibility of a bad/broken build
in bonobo..

I wanted to Know what will be the implications of removing/decoupling bonobo
from evolution package.
Is it possble to replace Bonobo functionality by appropriate substitutes at
the Gdk layer..

I need a deeper understanding in this regard...Plzz help...

 Your Bonobo/ORBit is broken.  Whether this is due to a bad build, broken
 configuration, or it just doesn't work on DirectFB, I don't know.

 Hi,
 I am trying to port evolution mail client to Directfb backend.

 I have replaced X11 calls with  corresponding Gdk/Gtk function calls,
 found in evolution
 and its dependent libraries so as to remove  linkage to xlib.

 Now  I can run the application  with DFB backend  but  when there is a
 requirement of 2/3
 windows(like Edit box,folder view  etc) to be displayed all together , i
 am not able to see these together.

 Also, Tool bar is not displayed properly , certain icons in the tool bar
 are missing.
 *even while composing email _message_ edit_ box_ is missing.*
 while configuring the email client,Preferences part is not working
 properly.

 Pls give some pointers for the same. Any suggestion or Links in this
 regard will be of great help.

 Thanking you'll in advance...

Bonobo probably uses GtkPlug/GtkSocket, which have no implementation on
DirectFB.  I suggest you dig into bonobo to see if that is correct, and
then implement these (if possible at all).

One of the long-term goals is to remove Bonobo entirely, but it's a lot
of work.  Your best bet is to add some debugging hooks into the stub
GtkPlug/GtkSocket source to see if they are being called, which would
explain your problem.

No need to post twice, remember that people often live in different
timezones.

You might just have a broken install of gtkhtml, which will make itself
obvious with errors on the console.  Alternatively you are probably
hitting widgets which use Bonobo, which as far as I'm aware uses widget
reparenting which will either never work or needs to be implemented on
DirectFB.
