First desktop cut on CVS
I've just returned from vacation and commited first cut for the desktop
plugin i've been developing. It's still incomplete but I hope you would give
me some feedback about what you like/dislike on it. There is one little trick
that is needed to make it work, you should edit the lg3d-core/build.xml file
to include the jar with the plugin to the classpath so it's available when
the plugin is loaded (I will probably file an issue on this soon). For now
you should edit that file and make it look like this (without text in
brackets of course):
[line to add]
This workaround only works when you use ant (or netbeans wich uses ant) to
call the "run-dev" target, so it won't work when called from the lg3d-dev
script. Once you get to load the plugin correctly you'll see one box in the
upper-left corner of the screen, you can click on it and it will grow to use
almost all the screen, there you can play around, and launch any program that
you have in the desktop (only .desktop based ones i.e.: direct acceses
created from kde/gnome).
Hope you don't find problems with it and please post your thoughts here.
It's far from complete, but as I'm back from holydays, i'll work hard to catch
up this week.
