Pushed the stable version of screencast code to the sand box
Fix for when focus is outside of xserver window
2 places where window focus transfer does not happen and popup remans open
Tried several 3rd party apps and they behave the same so this OK (is it ? - phil)
Working on build changes to build OpenJDK using screencast on OL 7
Have dynamic loading of functions working. Still relying on the pipewire and spa header files.
On RHEL/OL 8 it does not work when try to run screenshot -outdated pipewire
missing xdg portal support.
So probably can't support such older releases as they will never get all the fixes needed.
Last time when trying to take screenshot on RHEL/OL 9 found does not have xdg portal -
Jonas : said xdg portal gnome backend was there in RHEL 9.0 but lost in 9.1
but this was fixed (9.2) ? Alexander would have to check what version he was using
but this is probably the issue
Alexander: we should talk to jtreg folks about not cleaning out various desktop related
variables from the environment that become more important for wakefield
(DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS, XDG_SESSION_TYPE and WAYLAND_DISPLAY)
Phil: agreed but our CI system cleans some of these out too, before jtreg even has a chance.
So multiple things to address.
Jonas : how important is it to support restore tokens in persist mode on RHEL9.x/OL9.x
Phil: This is the support to allow permissions to do screen capture to persist across sessions.
It is very much needed for our automated CI testing systems which reboot after every test task.
Would be hard to support a release where it isn't possible
On Ubuntu 22.04 have pipewire-0.3 and spa-0.2 - are these API stable ?
Jonas (or was it Olivier?) replied pipewire was api stable as of v 0.3.1.X. So probably fine.
The build work Alexander is doing is important so that we can build on our CI systems
Otherwise a blocker to integrating even xwayland compatibility support into wayland
We build one binary for many distros and versions .. so there's a LCD requirement.
Talked with Nikita Gubarkov who has been working on hidpi on wayland
(see posts on list at https://mail.openjdk.org/pipermail/wakefield-dev/2023-February/000081.html)
Where should he push this ?
(1) Probably into its own branch at https://github.com/openjdk/wakefield
(2) he isn't a project committer so you will need to do it for him
Maxim will hopefully be back soon and will pick up where he left off on wakefield work.
