Do you have a list of outstanding tasks for Gtk3 conversion?
You mentioned that the selectors are not yet converted. I
found problems with Tags, the Attribute editor, the busy
cursor and the
status (pixbuf) column in the database manager.
I'd like to help, but want to avoid working on the same thing
The general script has run to convert things. That touched
The rest is converting by trial and error it seems. If you
find a type of problem not converted, then you should off
course try to convert everywhere where used.
About the editors, not converted are those who don't have
their .glade file converted to gtk3 (just open and save in
glade editor will do the conversion). So you can convert any
Currently, when I have time for Gramps hacking, I try a piece
out of gramps I did not try before and that has GTK
components, convert, and commit the same day. Most of the
time, the fixes are really very minor, just a small change,
So there is very little risk of working on the same thing at
the same time. For the larger parts (pdf output reports via
cairo, pedigree, fanchart, ...), I would suggest the person
starting with that to just mail the devel mailing list, to let
others know. Those are the only parts where I expect more than
an evening hacking to fix.
Concerning the glade files, some parts about expand have
changed. It can be difficult to find the expand and fill value
to change so as to obtain correct resizing of editors. In GTK3
there is some inheriting of glade components, which was not
the case before. Some editors also require sane defaults
widths to be usable.
Thanks. I'll start by making small changes.
