The BSD CI builds fine. And this does surprise me, given that
signal_source has nothing to do with the inotify code.

Re: [PATCH] Updated wlr-layer-shell to v4 + corresponding keyboard interactivity change 3 months ago

From Leon Plickat to ~leon_plickat/lavalauncher

I finally got around to apply this, in light of the coming Sway
version 1.6 updating the supported layer shell version. Once that
releases, I will issue a point release (2.1.0, which will probably be
the last release for major version 2).

I had to make some small changes (I was wrong, the protocol is still
at v1. Unstable protocols have two versions, one with a 'v' prefix and
one without.)

Thanks for your contribution.

No one is denying that there may be some issues. What matters is
what people do when they find that their use case is apparently not
supported in Wayland.

If Wayland or rather some implementation does not support your use
case and you feel like it should, you could just contact the developers,
/respectfully/ making them aware of your problem. If you are willing to
listen if the answer isn't a direct solution but rather suggesting

Thanks for the patch, review below.

I am still not too sure about this, though I am not totally opposed to an
"orientation" option.

However, the way hiding is currently implemented, the size of the hidden bar
depends on the orientation, making the hidden bar awkward to use if the
orentation of the bar does not match the orientation of the screen edge it is
docked to. This needs to be changed before I can accept this patch.

Thank for the trust.

I'll do it in multiple patches then.

I initially had this idea as well, but have not yet come up with a way
to integrate it with the current approach of using an additional
touchpoint and the casa_surface_touch_{up,down}() functions for the
axis stuff.

Although I guess for discrete input devices the progress can be
manipulated directly, bypassing all of that.

I am just not sure about continous devices which are not guaranteed
