Re: Gnome-terminal gets on the bus

2006/6/3, Iain * <iaingnome gmail com>:

Not really sure who to send this to: does gnome-terminal even have a
maintainer these days?

First there was Bonobo, and it was good for certain things, and sucked
fairly majorly for others, but it was not cross-desktop and all that
stuff that people like, so the good bits of it were replaced by DBus.

Occasionally programs used Bonobo to implement unique program
instances. gnome-terminal was one of them. In the spirit of using DBus
pervasivly throughout the desktop I have ported gnome-terminal to use
this new system

Very cool. Seems to launch way faster than bonobo version too after a
quick test :)
(though that might be 2.14.1 vs CVS too I guess)

The patch is here:
and is also attached.

lots of love
