Spent the morning looking how much work the move of #phosh to #gtk4 / #libadwaita will be and it turned out better than expected.

Needed to stub out some dependencies (libcall-ui, gcr, libgnome-desktop) and hack back support for custom wayland surfaces into #gtk4 but with that things start to work and we can go widget by widget:

@agx will a move to GTK4 bring swipeable top and bottom bars to Phosh?

@dubstar_04 That is unrelated. Would be nice if we'd get it that easily. Some of my #phoc work is somewhat related to that though.


@agx my apologies. I thought that the swiping wasn't currently possible with GTK3 but a move to GTK4 will make it possible. I didn't mean to suggest that it would magically start working. 🤣

@dubstar_04 Just for context: It's possible with GTK3 too. It's really more a #phosh / #phoc interaction thing.
