[Deskbar Applets] Integrate USBDeskbar Deskbar Applet Into Codebase
|Reported by:||CodeforEvolution||Owned by:||nobody|
In an age where essentially all external peripherals are connected through USB, I think that including USBDeskbar in the Haiku release image would be very handy for a user dealing with lots of connected devices (especially since the Devices preflet currently does not enumerate connected USB devices). Not to mention, USBDeskbar already handles USB connect and disconnect sounds which is currently not implemented within Haiku itself (ticket #16674).
USBDeskbar is currently available to install from HaikuPorts on both x86_gcc2 and x86_64 architectures.
Additionally, the code for USBDeskbar is currently available here at HaikuArchives: https://github.com/HaikuArchives/USBDeskbar
- The code is currently under a GNU GPL V1 license
- Device info display is partially broken
- The code needs to be cleaned up for Haiku styling
