Well, what u need is a build time flag, which should first get rid of
all X11 headers.
Then you end up having to define or mapping the missing structure /
defines in npruntime,h & npapi.h to appropriate DFB equivalents
Now, after that, you will get stuck with gtk_socket_new .. a well
known issue with DFB windowing which is currently not implemented in
the gtk/dfb backend.
I remember some how the mozilla guys managed to get DFB SWFDEC player
plugin working.. wonder how ?
I think mostly they rendered the plugin on a different Window !
I heard that gtk_socket_new may get fixed in DFB-2.0.. untill then DFB
plugins will have to wait !
Not sure if there is a better way to render DFB plugins on to
Webframe/view 's surface directly !
