Woho, so from 3.8, gnome has one executable, that serves as desktop, window manager, compositor (all these already in <=3.6) and (new) screensaver. Long live modularity!
And the "inhibition" thing drove me crazy when using vlc in kde. All those damn answers from vlc-devs "it's kde's fault, not our", when kde supported the most recent inhibition draft. And now finally gnome will support it - and magically it will work on kde :/
Wow, Gnome actually supporting a FDO standard they didn't create? It is a sign of the end-times, I tell you. I wonder how long before they decide to brea...*ahem*...modify it for their purposes in an incompatible manner.
I hope they fix the gnome-shell lock screen first, because as it is know its a buggy piece of shit. It doesn't even respect "lock after" in system settings, and sometimes it starts to get super slow (it will lock like 1 min after you hit ctrl alt l). Gnome-screensaver always worked reliably even if it wasnt pretty.
At least they are finally supporting FD.o inhibit. Now gnome, just STICK.WITH.IT. I am so sick of them fucking breaking screensaver inhibit with every fucking release. As it is right now in several popular media players this is still broken in gnome because they removed what they were using before (gnome-screensaver -p), so mplayer/mplayer2/smplayer are broken when it comes to this in gnome 3.6. afiak the only media players with working inhibiting in gnome 3.6 is totem/vlc and gnome-mplayer 1.0.7+
>Screensaver now part of the Gnome Shell executable
Why on Earth would you do that?
So now all *box and Unity users would need to use the fugly XScreensaver?
Ubuntu would of course come up with an alternate solution... Either stick with the old gnome-screensaver for a while, fork it, roll their own etc... I believe linux mint has already forked it. Afiak ubuntu already had plans to eventually use the lightdm greeter as the lock screen instead of gnome screensaver.
Please Gnome Team, for the love of god give me an option to make windows start in the center of the screen instead of the top-left corner.
Please. I know this is a little thing to some people, but it annoys me to no end. This is especially true because the Activities hot corner is the left corner and reaching for new windows to drag them can lead to unwanted overview activation.
