window : a GdkWindow, used for communication with the server. The window must have GDK_PROPERTY_CHANGE_MASK in its events mask or a hang will result.
Returns : the time stamp.

gdk_net_wm_supports ()

gboolean    gdk_net_wm_supports             (GdkAtom property);

This function is specific to the X11 backend of GDK, and indicates whether the window manager for the default screen supports a certain hint from the Extended Window Manager Hints Specification. See gdk_x11_screen_supports_net_wm_hint() for complete details.

property : a property atom.
Returns : TRUE if the window manager supports property

gdk_x11_screen_supports_net_wm_hint ()

gboolean    gdk_x11_screen_supports_net_wm_hint
                                            (GdkScreen *screen,
                                             GdkAtom property);

This function is specific to the X11 backend of GDK, and indicates whether the window manager supports a certain hint from the Extended Window Manager Hints Specification. You can find this specification on http://www.freedesktop.org.

When using this function, keep in mind that the window manager can change over time; so you shouldn't use this function in a way that impacts persistent application state. A common bug is that your application can start up before the window manager does when the user logs in, and before the window manager starts gdk_x11_screen_supports_net_wm_hint() will return FALSE for every property. You can monitor the window_manager_changed signal on GdkScreen to detect a window manager change.

screen : the relevant GdkScreen.
property : a property atom.
Returns : TRUE if the window manager supports property

Returns the name of the window manager for screen.

gdk_x11_window_set_user_time ()

                                             guint32 timestamp);

The application can use this call to update the _NET_WM_USER_TIME property on a toplevel window. This property stores an Xserver time which represents the time of the last user input event received for this window. This property may be used by the window manager to alter the focus, stacking, and/or placement behavior of windows when they are mapped depending on whether the new window was created by a user action or is a "pop-up" window activated by a timer or some other event.

Note that this property is automatically updated by GDK, so this function should only be used by applications which handle input events bypassing GDK.

window : A toplevel GdkWindow
timestamp : An XServer timestamp to which the property should be set

Since 2.6

visual : a GdkVisual
xcolormap : The XID of a colormap with visual visual
Returns : the GdkColormap object for xcolormap. Free with g_object_unref(). Note that for colormap created with gdk_x11_colormap_foreign_new(), unref'ing the last reference to the object will only free the GdkColoramp object and not call XFreeColormap()

Since 2.2

Registers interest in receiving extension events with type codes between event_base and event_base + n_events - 1. The registered events must have the window field in the same place as core X events (this is not the case for e.g. XKB extension events).

If an event type is registered, events of this type will go through global and window-specific filters (see gdk_window_add_filter()). Unregistered events will only go through global filters. GDK may register the events of some X extensions on its own.

This function should only be needed in unusual circumstances, e.g. when filtering XInput extension events on the root window.

event_base : first event type code to register
n_events : number of event type codes to register
