Davyd Madeley added some more things to his list today.
This is one of 'm:


This one of these features I always missed in Gnome. Most desktop-oriented distributions ship there own utilities herefor, now I also have this on my Debain :D. Hooray !

He also added type-ahead functionality in the GTK filechooser as a new Gnome 2.10 feature, I already have this in my 2.6 though, anyone who hasn't ?

See you !

As much as I like Gnome, I really dislike the ugly xscreensaver, yuk :(. Really, my whole desktop has a sexy gtk2 interface with antialiased fonts, while that xscreensaver screen looks plain horrible.

I thought there was some mention of it on the desktop-devel mailinglist to replace it with a gtk2 counterpart. Anyone knows if it actually will be replaced? Thnx!

I think he's not talking about the configuration of xscreensaver, its rather that bad looking password dialog (fire on monitor) when your screen gets locked.
+1 - are there any alternatives yet?

I'm very sorry for the confusion. Yes, it was indeed the password dialog I was referring to. The screensaver setup is beautiful :)

Check http://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/toolkits.html for the xscreensaver issue.

Quoting http://live.gnome.org/GnomeLove:
"Write a new Screensaver app: Only for brave hackers. It should use the xscreensaver hacks, but the core app should be a new gnome app"

Rewriting xscreensaver is a very tedious task, and the maintainer is not willing to add new stuff in xscreensaver (http://blog.eikke.com/index.php/ikke/2005/01/09/p66)

I see. It sucks. Maybe some distribution will push the developement ? Maybe Novell ? :p

We were doing some work in replacing the Xscreensaver authentication dialogs with our own hooks, so that we could run any authentication dialog we wanted.

Something pretty, translatable, accessible and secure.

It's proving quite difficult however.
