2003-10-12 Havoc Pennington <> Merge reduced_resources mode patch from the branch. Offers wireframe and no-animations. * src/window.c (implement_showing): no animation if we are in reduced resources mode * src/prefs.c: add REDUCED_RESOURCES pref * src/window.c (meta_window_update_keyboard_resize): fix to modify grab_anchor_window_pos to grab_wireframe_rect if appropriate instead of window->rect * src/display.h (struct _MetaDisplay): add grab_start_serial used to avoid responding to events that occurred prior to the grab initialization. Still broken in various ways, specifically EnterNotify that occurred prior to XGrabPointer is processed as if it occurred after. * src/window.c (meta_window_update_keyboard_move): add this instead of meta_window_warp_pointer() crack * src/effects.c (meta_effects_update_wireframe): draw a kind of grid for the wireframe, instead of just a rectangle, like twm * src/screen.c (meta_screen_new): line width of 3 for the XOR gc "Reduced resources" mode based on wireframe patch from Erwann Chenede. Still pretty buggy. * src/keybindings.c (process_keyboard_move_grab) (process_keyboard_resize_grab): add gruesome wireframe hacks * src/display.c (meta_display_end_grab_op): end wireframe (meta_display_begin_grab_op): begin wireframe * src/effects.c (meta_effects_end_wireframe) (meta_effects_update_wireframe, meta_effects_begin_wireframe): routines to draw the wireframe stuff * src/window.c (window_should_be_showing): hide window when doing wireframe, commented out as it breaks grab * src/window.c (meta_window_refresh_resize_popup): handle wireframe * src/screen.c (meta_screen_new): create a screen->root_xor_gc for use in drawing wireframes * src/frames.c (meta_frames_push_delay_exposes): repaint everything before we delay
