gnome-desktop contains the libgnome-desktop library as well as a data
file that exports the "GNOME" version to the Settings Details panel.

The libgnome-desktop library provides API shared by several applications
on the desktop, but that cannot live in the platform for various
reasons. There is no API or ABI guarantee, although we are doing our
best to provide stability. Documentation for the API is available with
gtk-doc.

Installation
============

See the file 'INSTALL'. If you are not using a released version of
gnome-desktop (for example, if you checked out the code from git), you
first need to run './autogen.sh'.

Bubblewrap, installed as the bwrap binary, is a non-optional dependency
on platforms where it is supported and thumbnailing will silently fail
when it is not installed at runtime.
