GTK3 will slowly replace the “old” gtk2, and of course, if we don’t want to be left behind we have to move to gtk3 eventually.
Even if slowly (we need horse power! –> yes we need you too!!) LXDE is being ported too. Nothing has been released yet, but a good deal of work is actually into git repositories.
Right now, only five packages don’t want to build with gtk3 and they are: gpicview, libfm, lxmusic, lxpanel, pcmanfm. Everything else builds fine. As a side note, lxdm gtk greeter build but seems to crasch.
Please test those packages and report in our mailing list or even better upstream your issues.
To conclude, right now i don’t feel comfortable to push into factory gtk3 packages, so 12.1 most probably will stuck with the well know stable gtk2 packages.
Also, i’m actually working to use obs, to provide gtk3 enabled git nightly build not only to openSUSE (actually only >= 11.4) but also to Fedora 15 (already building with many successful packages) and Ubuntu/Debian. So if you are .deb packagers, please let me know, i need your help. Contact me and the lxde team using our mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great day,
