@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnar Arian: yeah, looks like the datadir is hardcoded: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gdm/-/blob/358825d4cf08c7e28d7c8364325a6a68649522de/daemon/gdm-launch-environment.c#L957 17:38:53
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnar maybe you could start stuff using systemd (e.g. WantedBy=display-manager.service) but not sure if it would work 17:40:33
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnarprobably will depend on what you want to start17:40:42
@arianvp:matrix.orgArianI want to start e.g. an accessibility tool17:41:59
@arianvp:matrix.orgArianE.g. on screen keyboard17:42:07
@arianvp:matrix.orgArian(yes I know there are some on the options menu but that list is not configurable I think)17:42:33
@arianvp:matrix.orgArian* I want to start e.g. an accessibility tool17:42:44
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan TojnarI would try to start it with systemd but it probably will not work on Wayland17:46:39
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnar or maybe patch gdm to support XDG_DATA_DIRS 17:47:06
@piegames:matrix.orgpiegames The first GNOME update with the automatically packaged extensions, how to proceed? So the broad plan is that pkgs.gnomeExtensions always points to a more or less curated and up-to-date extension set that matches pkgs.gnome-shell. Since the merge of GNOME 41, this is not the case anymore. 21:00:41
@piegames:matrix.orgpiegamesMy biggest issue with "simply bumping" is that a lot of extensions don't have declared support for GNOME 41 yet (actually, a lot of extensions I used to use have still not made the bump to 21:01:43
@piegames:matrix.orgpiegames * My biggest issue with "simply bumping" is that a lot of extensions don't have declared support for GNOME 41 yet (actually, a lot of extensions I used to use have still not made the bump to 40). They would not be included in the package set, causing massive evaluation failures.21:02:15

@arianvp:matrix.orgArian Jan Tojnar: but the GDM greeter is a Wayland session these days no? 08:22:38
@arianvp:matrix.orgArianah no. it's X apparently08:23:55
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnar Arian: yeah, probably would need to be disabled 15:07:21
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan TojnarI have not been able to use onboard with wayland15:07:58
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnarsqueekboard supports "Wayland virtual keyboard protocol" but I am not sure how well supported that is15:08:53
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnarespecially since gnome does not support layer-shell15:09:19

@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnar piegames: hmm, that is right – though previously, we used to mark incompatible extensions with meta.broken = true so that would have caused similar failures 15:13:34
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnarbut then again, mass breaks were not that common15:14:20
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnar piegames: but maybe we could have `gnomeExtensions = map markBroken gnome38Extensions // map markBroken gnome40Extensions // gnome41Extensions) 15:17:13

In reply to @jtojnar:matrix.org
piegames: but maybe we could have `gnomeExtensions = map markBroken gnome38Extensions // map markBroken gnome40Extensions // gnome41Extensions)
Yep, I'll aim for something like that. Don't bother with 3.38 though, since it's guaranteed to be incompatible. Also I'm a bit conservative on marking extensions as broken, since GNOME nowadays has built-in version checks.

@piegames:matrix.orgpiegamesIs there a reason one needs moderator privileges to invite new users? Would be cool to lift that19:20:44
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnarpossibly to reduce spam19:56:25
@jtojnar:matrix.orgJan Tojnarlooks like it can be changed in permission settings19:58:06
@piegames:matrix.orgpiegamesI've also encountered this on IRC before. It always weirds me out because I can still DM that person and tell them to go into that channel. So nothing's gained20:02:07
@piegames:matrix.orgpiegamesAre the room settings managed globally for the entire Space?20:02:52

hpfr: flatpak update https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/141913
thanks. unfortunately https://nixos.org/channels/nixos-unstable is still behind https://status.nixos.org, which I didn't even think was possible. shouldn't the status page wait until the channel itself actually updates?

@hpfr:matrix.orghpfrapparently that's currently an issue https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-org-configurations/issues/16900:36:47
