So I have decided to make a gnome extension that draws a border around all open windows as if
border-width: 0px 1px 1px 1px; was set in gtk.css. While that sounds quite boring the plan is to evolve it into a plugin that would allow Qubes os to render colored VM borders.
After going though a bunch of extensions and gnome code I got to the point where I got something working but running get_allocation_box() on the window actors returns a box inconsistently larger then the window so that probably not what I want I’m wondering wheres the code for alt+esc in gnome or what should I be calling to get the height/width of window as you see it on the screen and not the actor object.
Code is here. it’s pretty hacked together, just a experiment at this point.
what it looks like
