Then let's reject this ticket?

#4 Updated by intrigeri 11 months ago

Current blocker: the lack of an applet that's well integrated into GNOME Shell.

One could argue that ASP will solve this but I don't think ASP work for things that get auto-started with the GNOME session (does it?).

It doesn't. I install gnome-shell-pomodoro and have to enable it
manually each time and then restart GNOME Shell.

It doesn't. I install gnome-shell-pomodoro and have to enable it manually each time and then restart GNOME Shell.

FTR this is another, additional/different problem than the one I was referring to: even if gnome-shell-pomodoro was installed (but disabled) by default, you would have to enable it and restart GNOME Shell anyway. While parcimonie installed via ASP — once it has a GNOME Shell extension — would be affected by two problems: 1. the parcimonie daemon would not auto-start; 2. the user would need to enable the GNOME Shell extension + restart GNOME Shell.

And in passing, I think that currently on Wayland there's no way to restart GNOME Shell without restarting the full GNOME session, which we don't support in Tails. If that's a blocker for the move to Wayland in your opinion, or you feel the need to discuss this meta aspect, please file a subtask of #12213 :)

Actually I don't think we need to wait for a GNOME Shell extension: even if parcimonie was refreshing keys in the background with no UI, it would already be useful.
