03:44:53micahi've been happily using my new rockbox'd ipod to listen to podcasts that I put on there with gpodder. Works great, kudus to everyone who worked on rockbox
03:45:08micahwhat I'm looking for is a way to tell that I've listened to an episode
03:45:44micahi might put 10 episodes of a particular podcast on, listen to three of them and then go listen to some other podcasts and then when I come back to listen to more of the original ones, I can't remember which one I last listend to
03:45:58micahI end up listening to the beginning of a few of them until I remember that I'd listened to it
03:46:13micahi thought maybe there was a way to handle this in rockbox so I've been looking around for any ideas
03:49:23[Saint]You could /probably/ do this with a custom tagnavi file filtering by play count.
03:49:48[Saint]http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/DataBase#tagnavi.config_v2.0_Syntax
03:50:55[Saint]so, basically, you'd have everything with a play count greater than 0 appear in a "Listened To" directory in the Database or something.
03:51:05[Saint]mind you, this assumes you even *use* the Database.
03:51:17[Saint]...you may not. :-S
04:00
04:03:09*[Saint] gives up
04:03:48[Saint]It is *far* too difficult (and voluminous) to get skinned lists to act anywhere near the built-in list system.
04:04:11[Saint]wrt: behavior in regard to respect of system settings for display
04:04:46[Saint]I basically need to reimplement the lists for each case :-S
04:05:08[Saint]icons, no icons, scroll bar left, scroll bar right, no scroll bar...
04:05:30[Saint]scroll bar width is just impossible :)
04:05:49[Saint](though you could make a case for each pixel in width :P)
04:06:10[Saint]Nup. Nuts to this. I give up.
04:07:33*[Saint] should listen to JdGordon more often

04:10:04[Saint]skinned lists are great, but only if you're prepared to completely rob control of the assets from the user.
04:10:44[Saint]I thought it could be done. And it can be done. It just isn't worth it. :)

13:57:53[Saint]copper: What type of modifications did you make to the iBox theme?
13:58:06copperfor the blinking bug?
13:58:08[Saint]I am trying to get an idea of what users want, that the Apple OF doesn't have.
13:58:14copperah
13:58:43copperwell, I didn't take user input for it, I simply made the theme that I, personnally, wanted
13:59:07copper1) numeric values for volume and battery life, because a pretty icon is way too inaccurate
13:59:14copper2) HDD activity indicator
13:59:27[Saint]I just added an optional "gas gauge" for the battery level in percentile that functions from the settings - theme settings - battery - graphical/numerical display settings.
13:59:33 Join ZincAlloy [0] (~Adium@pD9EEBBE2.dip0.t-ipconnect.de)
14:00
14:00:09[Saint]that will show the battery level in a percentile next to the icon if the setting == numeric
14:00:10copper3) no lost real estate for the sbs, I wanted the menu to take all the usable space, although with decent margins from the 4 sides
14:00:24 Join lebellium_gs2 [0] (~lebellium@80.215.0.203)
14:00:57copper4) tracknumber, track duration, title, artist, album, year, and just because I had some space left: codec and bitrate
14:01:34copperoh, and current position in track (in minutes:seconds) and remaining time left
14:02:00copperI didn't include a play / pause icon, mostly because I don't really need it, and I couldn't be arsed to figure out something pretty
14:02:16copperHDD activity is the one thing that's missing from most themes, IMO
14:02:16[Saint]I initially made me "iLike" theme ~98% faithfully accurate to the Apple OF, but now I am going through and adding usability back into it.
14:02:49copperit's very useful to tell the user not to overwhelm Rockbox while there's already heavy HDD activity
14:03:39[Saint]Lots of the clones I have seen of iLike ended up screwing up the HDD access animation by cut/paste errors. :)
14:03:43[Saint]There's supposed to be one.
14:04:04[Saint]One of the reasons I stopped working on this theme is because it got cloned and butchered by a bazillion people :)
14:05:25[Saint]Anyhoo, thank you, copper - the input is appreciated.
14:05:39coppernp
14:05:43copperbrb
14:05:53[Saint]I will prod you for testing when I am done here, if you would like.
14:11:49[Saint]The finished product is essentially my best effort at a complete clone of the Apple OF for the iPod Video, but with the "missing bits" added in to it and making sure that it respects user settings.

16:06:26copperand I use viewports
16:06:39copperbut yeah that's basically the same thing
16:07:12*[Saint] nods
16:10:25copperI kinda want to make new themes for the Classic and the Fuze+, notably for the Classic, that doesn't look like the OF, but I'm no graphics designer
16:10:36coppermuch easier to copy and modify, than to create
16:11:21copperI really like http://themes.rockbox.org/index.php?themeid=1857&target=ipodcolor

16:16:32[Saint]Is that a directory? IS it an audio file? AN image? A plugin? :)
16:17:56***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
16:18:02[Saint]That is the reason I stopped using the skin engine to draw the lists and use the built-in list mechanism instead, it makes it much much easier to switch between icons/no icons.

20:31:08amayerdo you have a condition inside a viewport? i experienced blinking when i did that but when i moved the condition out of the viewport it stopped

20:32:21coppermy fix is to put all the viewport code on the same line
20:32:25copperugly, but it works
20:37:58amayercopper, try taking the condition out and see if the blinking stops. ill bet that is whats causing it. my theme works way better now that i changed that. and inbetween songs is smoother (theme wise) also
20:43:42copperHow? The condition decides whether to display metadata or "unknown"

21:21:20amayercopper: hmm... you could have 2 viewports and use %?cond<%Vl(a)|%Vl(b)> and %Vd(a)%metadata %Vd(b)unknown
21:21:38amayernot saying its pretty but it might stop the flickering
21:22:12amayeri usually do those conditions like "has artist tag" and "has album title" in the viewport too

21:28:51lorenzo92we have an inconsistency in rbpaths, I discovered it while fixing screendump for hosted targets...
21:29:17lorenzo92for ypr0 we have HOME_DIR "/mnt/media0", while for the other ports simply HOME_DIR "/"
21:29:48lorenzo92so the question is: does rockbox care of double // in a path? if unix "compliant", it should, can you confirm?
21:34:29lorenzo92kugel: ^
21:39:04[Saint]regarding fonts, personally, I think we should generate a GNU Unifont of the required size for each cabbie port and axe the rest.
21:39:43[Saint]perhaps an antialiased version and a bitmap version.
21:40:07*[Saint] has just given himself something to do...
21:40:19lebelliumI can't wait [Saint] :P
21:42:41ZincAlloythe problem with pixelfonts is that they tend to come out nice looking only at certain sizes. at least the way I created mine
21:44:56ZincAlloymy approach was rather primitive, though
21:47:22 Quit EstebanMonge (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
21:51:24amayerwhen was Cabbie v2 created?
21:51:37ZincAlloy2007/2008
21:51:51ZincAlloywe made additional unifonts version then
21:52:45[Saint]Coincidentally, I started generating some GNU Unifont 5.1 .fnt files last night.
21:53:16ZincAlloyto make it more accessible. it looks much more pleasing with helvetica (which has plenty of glyphs, too)
21:53:46[Saint]there's no font that even comes close to the coverage of GNU Unifont.
21:54:04[Saint]ANd ideally, the default font should "Just Work" in the users language.
21:54:09Tornemisc-fixed is pretty good ;)
21:54:26Torne6x13 and so on
21:54:30Tornehttp://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs-fonts.html
21:54:41[Saint]As no part of the documentation says that the user must have the forethought to check the glyph coverage before switching from Eng. :)
21:55:11*gevaerts can confirm that
21:55:41gevaertsI'm using misc-fixed for terminals, and while it doesn't have *everything*, only rasher seems to be able to find the missing glyphs
21:55:57[Saint]I'll have a look.
21:56:15[Saint]One assumes it is permissibly licensed?
21:56:56gevaertsX
21:57:20Torneit's a monospace font, though
21:57:26Tornealready bitmap
21:57:28Tornein various sizes
21:57:37[Saint]Whatever font we pick, I still think its a good idea to try to use it throughout all the ports and axe the other fonts.
21:57:58Tornemgk25 is the man who makes unicode work. :)
21:57:59[Saint]The default theme having different fonts per target is weird.
21:58:40ZincAlloywhy axe the other fonts?
21:59:05[Saint]Same reason as we got rid of the other themes.
21:59:14ZincAlloywould make the creation of themes more of a pain
21:59:29[Saint]No it wouldn't...
21:59:30ZincAlloyand compromise the useability of existing themes

21:59:40[Saint]No.
21:59:47ZincAlloyah, so they would still be included in the font pack?
21:59:57[Saint]Yes.

22:00:13[Saint]There's just no point in shipping more fonts than needed, IMO.
22:00:16 Quit amayer (Quit: Leaving)
22:00:41ZincAlloyhow many fonts does rockbox come with? I never installed it witout the fonts pack
22:04:00[Saint]Only one, sorry, I have been unclear. Its the fact they differ per device that bugs me.
22:04:22[Saint]per-port, rather.
22:05:50[Saint]But, yes, if all the cabbie ports were made to use the same font - the other fonts would still be available via the font pack.
22:08:52[Saint]I actually thought that a default install shipped with more than a single font, though, guess not.
22:09:10ZincAlloyunifont is rather tall. I think that was one of the reasons we went for helvetica.
22:09:35[Saint]only glyph coverage concerns me.
22:09:56[Saint]users can easily change the font if they find it ugly.
22:10:03ZincAlloyit's always a compromise
22:10:14[Saint]my primary concern is it working with as many locales as possible.
22:10:32ZincAlloyno. themes tend to work only at specific font sizes
22:10:33 Join EstebanMonge [0] (~emonge@200.110.251.210)
22:11:09[Saint]What's your point? I am aware of this.
22:11:11ZincAlloyit's first visual impression vs. working with any locale
22:11:37ZincAlloycabbie was created out of the need for a nicer first visual impression
22:11:39[Saint]I can generate a .fnt file from Unifont of any arbitrary height.
22:11:47ZincAlloybut will it look good?
22:12:22[Saint]That shouldn;t be a concern.
22:12:37[Saint]Usability trumps prettiness.
22:12:48[Saint]And frankly, cabbie isn't pretty to begin with :P
22:13:14ZincAlloyoh, I like it a lot. haven't been able to come up with something prettier
22:18:02***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:18:50[Saint]The only reason I am against using a font like Helvetica, is that it is extremely non-obvious to a user who speaks CJK or some form of Left-to-Right dialect that they would need to first change to a font that they may not even have installed before selecting their language or face the possibility of rendering the UI completely inoperable if they don't happen to have voice files installed and selected.
22:19:38[Saint]That creates a terrible first impression.
22:19:58ZincAlloyyeah, it's quite a bummer
22:28:15ZincAlloydoes deja vu cover all the glyph sets we need?
22:30:10ZincAlloyoh, wait, the font generator makes it look like such a mess..
22:31:03[Saint]rasher.dk/rockbox/fontstats/">http://rasher.dk/rockbox/fontstats/
22:31:45[Saint]unifont wins by a massive margin.
22:35:43ZincAlloyof course it does. will it actually be readable in all languages once brought down to target size?
22:38:44ZincAlloybtw, why were unifont versions ditched?
