Description Vincent Untz 2006-07-30 12:32:56 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #349256 +++

Please help kill libegg. Your module contains some egg code that is now deprecated thanks to new features, most probably the new GTK+ 2.10 features like:

 + GtkRecent* (deprecating EggRecent)
 + GtkStatusIcon (deprecating EggTrayIcon and EggStatusIcon)
 + GtkCellRendererAccel (deprecating EggCellRendererKeys)
 + GtkAccelGroup now has features to deprecate EggAccelerator (see bug 85780)

Also, egg-screen-exec stuff has been deprecated: see*checkout*/libegg/libegg/screen-exec/README

Also, EggIconList has become GtkIconView in GTK+ 2.6.
Comment 1 Neil Williams 2009-04-04 19:18:08 UTC
The relevant features for drivel are GtkRecent in place of EggRecent and GtkStatusIcon instead of EggTrayIcon. These are still in 2.1 (trunk) in src/libegg. With the upcoming GNOME 3.0, drivel will need to get rid of libegg in 2.1 or 2.2 at the latest.
Comment 2 André Klapper 2009-08-04 14:14:53 UTC
The sooner, the better.
Comment 3 Neil Williams 2009-08-19 17:51:44 UTC

Closing the bug - deleting libegg from SVN but actual RecentView changes are pending.
