As i announced, i'm continuing your Hopman project and today i pushed
the code of the new interface in Gtkmm-2.4,
keeping yours the same original folder GTK2. The code is available at:


There have been some changes in the watch directory too. For example,
the original C code didn't manage removable
sata, ssd... hard disks connected via usb, because the integer storaged
in the corresponding "removable" file [*] was equal to "0"
in such cases. On the other hand, trying to figure out how to get the
hotplug partitioning data in the most efficient way,
i ended up involved in the helpers of vdev (stat_usb.* and common.*
files in  the watch directory):


I had wanted to upload the packages of hopman throughout the past week,
but i've had issues related to some, already resolved,
GdkMouseEvents. Therefore, they'll be available as soon as posible.



[*] Have a look at the lines nº 25-30 of hotplug_partition.c:
