To be clear, I am pretty serious that I think we can keep the menu
entries to 15 or less and that the main capplets should be on the
toplevel not in subdirs.
It was flat-out too hard to find things in the old setup. Especially
when navigating via Nautilus instead of the menus.
There are a couple things in the current toplevel Prefs menu that can
go to make space:
- "Setup My gdm Face" can/should become "User Information" or something
and also cover your email address, GECOS, etc.
- "Save current session" should come out
Maybe those are just artifacts of an old install and aren't in a clean
install of HEAD though.
Anyway we have 6 or 7 slots still available. I don't see how we're
going to fill those up.
Of what's in Advanced:
- the theme capplet should become fonts/appearance/whatever and go in
- panel settings should not be in here
- file types and programs and default applications should presumably
- Sawfish stuff should become one capplet with focus mode and
a couple other crucial things, perhaps
- session properties should probably be a utility or something
instead of a control panel
For accessibility I think one capplet with tabs as in Windows XP would
So anyhow, there's still lots of cruft cluttering things up and we
should be able to make space for useful stuff pretty easily. And
again, there's still space left even with all the cruft in there.
