Customizing the button layout doesn't work


Description Mike Massonnet editbugs 2010-11-14 12:23:05 CET
When you try to customize the button layout (xfwm4-settings) you get a corrupted layout that you can't repair. Well you can but it's tricky.

I can reproduce this with latest git master.

I found out two things:

1. From GTK+ 2.20 on we have to use gtk_buildable_get_name() instead of 
   gtk_widget_get_name() to obtain the ID of the buttons in the glade file.
   This can be fixed easily.

2. Dragging layout buttons results in a number of warnings. Something seems 
   to be broken here as well.

Ok, the drag source and target IDs were also obtained using gtk_widget_get_name() which is wrong. Fixed in master:

    Fix broken button layouts by obtaining button IDs correctly (bug 6824).
    Since GTK+ 2.20, gtk_buildable_get_name() needs to be used instead of
    gtk_widget_get_name() (which always returns 'GtkButton' in this case).
