Description Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2014-10-19 02:08:33 UTC
Created attachment 148452 [details]
patch, marcuscom version (3.14.3)

Allow users to have Gtk desktop without DBus. AT-SPI bridge isn't required for accesibility with gtk20 and gtk30 and also cannot be used without X11. This should cut the number of dependencies and unused IPC for a minimalistic desktop.

The option was originally removed due to lack of testing i.e., "no core developer is gonna run X11 with atk-bridge disabled". What that means in context of running Gtk apps without Gnome (or Gnome defaults) is unclear.

COLORD and CUPS disabled to not accidentally bring devel/dbus in case gtk30 implicitly depends on it.

No -P (PREFIX!=LOCALBASE) as it's not a generic "update" bug to try fixing unrelated stuff.

patch, ports version (3.8.8)

Obsolete since ports r372768. Attachment 148452 [details] doesn't need rebase yet.
Comment 10 Martin Wilke freebsd_committer 2016-01-17 10:49:08 UTC
Jan, Can we close this one?
Comment 11 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2016-01-17 14:37:03 UTC
No, it's still relevant. I may need to rebase the patch, though.

Comment 13 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2016-03-09 06:13:32 UTC
Long past maintainer timeout. files/patch-atk-bridge-option didn't require rebase since comment 0. I'm using it daily on my lightweight setup:

  $ pkg info -r gtk3

Ping!  Any word on this?  More and more applications are moving to gtk3-only, making a working 'without dbus' option an imperative.
After a brief chat on irc.gnome.org #gtk+, it seems as though gnome devs are actively against pulling any such patches upstream.  Can we just attach it to the port?  Any testing required let me know.

patch (4.0.0) for reference

x11-toolkits/gtk40 doesn't exist yet but to adapt one can

- Apply x11-toolkits/gtk30 changes
- s/_CONFIGURE_WITH=atk-bridge/_MESON_TRUE=enable-atk-bridge/
- Replace files/patch-atk-bridge-option with the attached patch
Comment 17 Andy 2018-12-17 15:31:53 UTC
I can confirm that on the lastest this patch continues to work.
Considering upstream inflexibility in making atk optional, I'm very much in favour of adding this to the port.  I think after over 4 years of waiting, some feedback from gnome@ might be warranted...
Comment 18 Andy 2019-08-17 14:29:16 UTC
I have a patched version of the patch, minus the index information you include.  Seems to work for me so far, on -current.
If you don't mind, maybe check that it works for you, or rebuild it.

If you're on Wayland see also bug 247039. For example,

  $ cat ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini


  $ cat ~/.config/glib-2.0/settings/keyfile

  x11-toolkits/gtk30: optionalize at-spi2-atk dependency

  AT-SPI bridge requires DBus and is limited to X11. As upstream plans
  to rework accessibility only in Gtk4 revert to make the bridge optional.
  And Gtk 3.26 isn't on the horizon yet.
