crossposting like a maniac, sorry - I do not think lxde-list is working
We had a discussion yesterday night (CEST) on IRC regarding the shape of
LXDE components and when to release and stuff.
Support for building for GTK3 is in place for most of the components but
not all. These should be the ones to look at.
It might just need the correct build things and so on, I have really no
clue here - I am just the messenger.
Not related to the above we also talked briefly about doing releases of
the other components. I will put together a list of changes for the
components that we can work with to decide of a new release is needed
sooner or later for a specific component.
I told earlier that I am interested in doing l10n-only releases if
needed be, that will be one of the metrics in this.

Disclaimer : I worked on LXDE components which are included in Lubuntu,
so I didn't have a look on, for example, lxpolkit, lxmusic and
Currently, I ported most of "simple" components to build and run with
GTK3. They probably need a bit more testing.
There are still work to do on the following components :
Currently, GTK3 theme is not updated on all windows, because the API
which is used was removed from GTK. I didn't find a way to do the same
with another API. Maybe it's possible to use XSendEvent, but I didn't
find a way to send a message to all windows.
It could be done with a Dbus backend on lxsession, by calling it to
restart the Xsettings manager, but the problem will be the same when
lxsession is not used.
Also, lxappearance show all GTK themes, even if they don't have a GTK3
theme. This one should be fixable.
It's building, but the preview of the obconf theme is broken. The change
I made need adjustments to work properly.
Support is incomplete, work in progress.
* libfm / pcmanfm
I didn't start it yet, but it should be one of the most long and
difficult to do :-/
This one also could be long. First changes I made seems to broke some
parts of the panel, and the work is not finished :-/
It's also a component without a maintainer, and I don't know if we need
to spend time to convert it, or use another panel which is more
In the short term, I plan to finish gpicview if I don't find any big
problem. I hope I can also fix lxappearance-obconf and lxappearance.
