# ePrivacy Screen and GNOME ### Basic implementation - **mutter** - monitors the changes to the DRM property and exposes it via a DBus property to the rest of the desktop - monitors `org.gnome.desktop.privacy`'s `privacy-screen` gsettings value and try to reflect the option on the device (if it supports software-changes) - ~~Emits a `privacy-screen-changed` property with a purpose argument when changes happen (if trigggered by us for security purposes, hotkey or gsettings)~~ - Emits a `show-osd` signal to make the shell to show the relative popup - **~~gnome-settings-daemon~~** - ~~via a new gsd-display-daemon (?! - to be discussed, but ideally it's like this to be reused by brightness settings too)~~ - ~~synchronizes the value with gsettings~~ - ~~tells the shell to show an OSD~~ - ~~**gnome-shell**~~ - ~~Reacts to mutter signal and based o that shows the relative OSD~~ - **gnome-control-center** - shows a related option if there's a screen in the system supporting this technology (can be unsensitive if the hardware has not software toggle support). ### Branches - https://gitlab.gnome.org/3v1n0/gsettings-desktop-schemas/-/commits/privacy-screen - https://gitlab.gnome.org/3v1n0/mutter/-/commits/eprivacy-support - ~~https://gitlab.gnome.org/3v1n0/gnome-settings-daemon/-/commits/display-manager+privacy-screen~~ - https://gitlab.gnome.org/3v1n0/gnome-control-center/-/commits/privacy-screen ### Merge requests - https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gsettings-desktop-schemas/-/merge_requests/49 - https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/-/merge_requests/1952 - https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/-/merge_requests/1032
