xpra toolbox

Description

Make it easier to launch our examples and diagnostic tools.
There are many very useful test applications that are just hidden from view. (ie: all the exe tools installed with the win32 binaries)

Provide a subcommand and a GUI for this.

Started in r24881 + r24882.

Still TODO:

  • many examples look wrong under wayland because GTK3 under wayland breaks the window geometry + paint API
  • add a harness to catch and show launch errors (ie: opengl test failures), most useful on win32
  • theme is missing from win32 bundle, shows default icons in header bar
  • win32 needs a script runner command
  • add more scripts from the tests apps folder
  • opengl test rendering
  • audio playback and capture tests
  • clipboard tool
  • keyboard, webcam
  • display info
  • test images + force encoding, quality and speed (via window props)
  • remove most of the win32 exe wrappers and macos helpers? (can always use toolbox to launch them)
  • man page, etc

Updates:

  • r24887: show toolbox button on main gui screen
  • r24885: opengl rendering test tool, keyboard and clipboard tests
  • r24887: add buttons for launching toolbox from the main gui header bar
  • r24893: win32 workarounds

It currently looks like this on win32 (with local icon theme so icons do show up...):
