A better solution perhaps would be to have the window manager uses the GNUstep code to decorate the window. If I remember, Yen ju started a wm using -gui ?..


Yep, it was called StepBox and it did almost work...
If you need the code let me know.

Frankly StepBox is not in a good shape because I failed to work out the WM protocol.
So it is a proof-of-concept that we can use -gui for drawing
and intercept NSEvent for window management.
The rest would be interpret each NSEvent and XEvent,
which require the knowledge of WM protocol.
And hackedbox is not really a good template because it doesn't work very well with GNUstep application.
WindowMaker would be a better choice (than hackedbox).
