#rockbox log for 2007-09-06

00:00:46 Join ddalton [0] (
00:01:32ddaltonHow does the radio display numbers with a decimal? For example "87.9"? Doesn't rockbox only use ints?
00:02:32bluebrotherit uses two ints afaik: the part before the dot and the part afterwards.
00:02:45BigBambiSpeaking of compilers, running rockboxdev has given me a few problems. On kubuntu 64bit, all targets selected, there seems to be a gcc related problem, yet apt-get says gcc is the latest version. Could someone take a quick look for me?
00:02:59linuxstb_ddalton: or (x / 10) and (x % 10)
00:03:01bluebrotherand no, Rockbox doesn't only use ints: it uses fixed point calculatoins
00:03:06linuxstb_(where x = 879)
00:03:06ddaltonhow is the calculation done?
00:03:29bluebrotherthe frequency is stored in Hz internally. So you need to divide to get the displayed value anyway
00:04:26saratogaddalton: rockbox can't use floating point numbers, but it can still use decimal numbers (fixed point)
00:04:32BagderBigBambi: you have build-essential installed?
00:04:42BigBambiBagder: Will check, one mo
00:04:59preglowsaratoga: anything new about ffts?
00:05:24saratogapreglow: nothing new on the ffmpeg lists, though they have submitted some code for various other types of ffts
00:05:24BigBambiBagder: Hmmm, I thought so, but it appears not. Thanks for the help, sorry for the bother!
00:05:44Bagderno problemos
00:05:54ddaltonok I have written a little c program here. It asks the user for a number and then trys to work it out in a decimal. So if on the radio the frequency is 1019 what would be displayed?
00:06:35Bagderif that is 1019 Hz, just do the math
00:06:45Bagderyou want KHz? divide with 1000
00:06:55*bluebrother forgets a usb_find_devices() and wonders why no devices are found :/
00:06:59Bagderand the decimals with %1000 then
00:07:20BigBambiWell oddly enough, with build-essential, building works!
00:07:27*BigBambi slaps forehead, hard
00:07:37DerPapstpoor forehead

00:14:49ddaltoncan someone tell me what needs to be done so when you enter 1019 it will print 101.9 I am just trying to work the calulation out.

00:15:36Bagderddalton: x = i % 10;
00:15:50delYsidddalton: modulo 10 and loop!
00:15:53Bagderif y = i /10;
00:16:21delYsidddalton: with every mod you pull out one digit and divide by 10
00:16:33delYsidits really simple
00:17:20ddaltonit displays 101.1 for 1019
00:17:23ddaltonis that right?
00:18:04ddaltonwhat is wrong now with it? I changed it to %10
00:18:21delYsidprintf("%d.%d", i/10, i%10)
00:18:35delYsidlinuxstb_: you beat me to it :-)
00:18:56linuxstb_delYsid: I even had a time to type \n
00:19:45delYsidlinuxstb_: and I saved one byte :-)
00:19:51bluebrotherwho of you did a typing class? ;-)
00:20:20linuxstb_ddalton: Is that working for you?
00:20:48ddaltonI wrote printf("\n%d.%d", i/10, i%100);
00:20:51ddaltonis that right?
00:21:03ddaltonand it says 101.19 for 1019.
00:21:13japcddalton: % = modulo, the remaining of the integer division by something
00:21:16bluebrotherno: you need to take the same modulo as you divided
00:21:17japc10 !!
00:21:48japcint i/10 = 101 ; i % 10 = 9
00:21:51japcthus 101.9
00:22:05ddaltonyep thanks for all the help working as expected.

00:28:55pixelmapowr-toc: and you are really sure you took the 30GB one?
00:29:03JdGordonI meant to ask last night.. where on the hidden partition is the bootloader that needs hacking on the e200?
00:29:12JdGordonor should i just do a dump and find it manually?

00:31:33JdGordonlinuxstb_: ok, and sansapatcher doesnt move that at all right? I shouldnt have any problem getting this all going on my sansa?

00:31:36XavierGramiconn: I am sorry which part of the code are you referring to? It's been some time since I looked that part.
00:31:42BagderI wrote that info in the wiki
00:32:02linuxstb_JdGordon: No, sansapatcher only modifies the main firmware part of the partition.
00:32:06JdGordonits too early in the morning to be reading wikis :)
00:32:19JdGordonok great.. hopefully ill have some good news this arvo after uni
00:32:49powr-tocpixelma: I still get the same error with the new build... I'm trying to upgrade from a previous build.... Is removing the old .rockbox folder and copying the new one to the ipods root enough?
00:32:51linuxstb_JdGordon: Also, it would be worth writing a test app that dumps the partition table (sector 0) to disk, and ask scorche to run it on his E200R. I don't think we know for sure what it will look like.
00:33:10JdGordonyeah, I was going ot do that...
00:33:25JdGordonthe code is there #if 0'd out so thats no problem
00:33:26linuxstb_The E200R firmware appears to fake the MBR via USB...
00:34:42pixelmapowr-toc: you should really only need to unzip the build directly over the old one
00:35:27powr-tocpixelma: sure... I'm effectively doing that, but ensuring there are no old files there first.
00:35:53linuxstb_powr-toc: When do you get the data abort? Is it before the file starts playing, or afterwards?

00:37:46linuxstb_powr-toc: And is this a new problem? i.e. have you played the same mp3 file with older versions of Rockbox?

00:38:18powr-toclinuxstb_: though I've not upgraded for quite some time

00:39:53 Part hcs
00:40:08linuxstb_Follow the instructions in the manual - upgrading the bootloader is the same as installing for the first time.
00:40:25powr-tocpixelma: this said, rockbox seems to boot ok... i.e. I can navigate the new menus etc

02:31:58linuxstb_What is "it" ? The original Toshiba firmware?
02:32:26yoyah56yea the original firmware
02:33:11RudManI'd remove all the music files from the device and then re-load them using the approved toshiba method
02:33:43linuxstb_Then I'm afraid I can't help. As krazykit said, you will be better of asking in a forum devoted to that firmware - most Rockbox users have never used Toshiba's firmware.

03:49:12nowayxgood evening
03:50:26nowayxi wrote a new game/plugin. What are the steps to have it on rockbox?
03:51:28FebsSubmit it to the Flyspray patch tracker.
03:51:50nowayxOk.. and from there? What happen? Patch it until it runs on all players?
03:52:31nowayxHmm I will wait for some feedback.
03:52:44FebsIf you want to get it accepted into Rockbox, then yes, it would almost certainly need to run on all supported players, or at least all that have hardware that support whatever your plugin is.
03:53:03FebsIt also needs to be submitted under a GPL-compatible license.
03:53:13nowayxOk, great.. I tested it for a few players (with lcd)

05:02:53rockoit won't wok Febs :(
05:03:38rockoit says my bootloader is up to date
05:04:02FebsIn that case, what version of Rockbox did you put on the ipod?
05:04:11rockothe newest
05:04:18rockoI don't think the bootloader is up to date though
05:04:25rockoipod video 30g
05:04:54FebsWhat is the actual build version number. Look at System−−>Rockbox Info.
05:05:04RudManat what point does it say data aborting
05:05:39rockowhen I start to play a song
05:05:56 Join bb [0] (n=bb@unaffiliated/bb)
05:06:06Febsrocko: first, check the version number as I described above.
05:06:19RudMandid you try initializing the database again?
05:07:14rockowhat does that mean RudMan
05:08:51Febsrocko: that is NOT "the newest" version. Install a current build.
05:10:47RudManhow bizarre...I just started the sim and there is no .rockbox dir below it
05:11:08krazykitdid you make install?
05:11:32RudManno, this is not on the dev image
05:11:39EnterUserNamehey all has there been anychangesd for battery life for sansa
05:11:47RudManit's like the .rockbox dir was deleted or moved
05:11:48EnterUserNameis it better than sansa's firmware?
05:11:54EnterUserNameim looking at a comparison
05:12:00RudManno - it is worse than the OF
05:12:03LloreanRudMan: Or you're in "supported" mode so you don't see the hidden folder?
05:12:07EnterUserNameoh ok
05:12:28krazykitEnterUserName, but the features of rockbox make it worth the battery life difference
05:13:16RudManllorean:no,no this has nothing to do with rockbox, this is a windows issue
05:13:27rockook I got r14624-070906
05:13:29LloreanRudMan: I thought you said you couldn't see it in the sim?
05:13:35rockosame problem with the errors.
05:13:44rockodata abort*
05:14:35rockoI don't think the bootloader is right
05:14:36RudManllorean: yeah, I couldn't see it in the sim but it's because the actual directory in windows is gone.....this is not a rockbox issue so I'll cease

07:15:22amiconnHmm, but that looks automatic...
07:15:44scorchecould be a script that does the same thing
07:16:15scorcheamiconn: just curious, but do those "next-gen" NiMH require the use of their own charger, or can regular chargers work as well?...many i saw "recommended" the use of their own charger, and i was wondering if it truely made a difference
07:16:48amiconnRegular NiMH charger is sufficient
07:17:31amiconnBut it should be a good one.
07:18:04scorcheis this "good" measurable with a multimeter?
07:19:33amiconn "- No special charger required!"
07:19:57scorchesome i saw said it should, some disagreed depending ont he site and battery
07:20:10amiconnNo it's not.
07:21:03amiconnOne property of a good charger is that it handles single cells. Cheap chargers often charge cells in pairs, which is bad
07:22:31amiconnAnd its electronics should be able to fully charge the cells without overcharging. That requires proper monitoring.

08:15:45LloreanLinusN: Yes. If it's about my loss of temper earlier, I'm feeling pretty bad about it already.
08:16:00Lloreanivan`: As they're not out yet, there's not much information on 'em. :)
08:16:16Jangarithey're bringing out 160 GB players?
08:16:27LloreanI would guess that they won't be, though.
08:16:56Jangarii suppose eventually, hard drive space will be such that you won't need compression,
08:17:13Jangarimm, sweet
08:17:16ivan`people will still compress anyway to fit in 20K tracks that they don't listen to
08:17:24Jangariwell, yeah
08:17:42LloreanWith flac you can maybe approximate to an average of 1/2 gb per CD, meaning 80cds already.
08:17:55ivan`flac is more like 300GB
08:17:56Jangarii have only 10GB of my 30 used, if it was uncompressed it'd be roughly 90-100GB

09:39:43fm2I'm not talking about battery, my concern is the delay before the backlight turns on. In the OF, it tirns on immediately. So this must be a RB "artefact".
09:39:53GodEaterB4gder: which flavour, Gnu, or X ?
09:40:15GodEaterI always preferred X for some reason
09:40:31B4gderI come from a time long before the X one existed ;-)
09:40:34GodEaterprobably because you could load a wallpaper into the text buffer, or some pointless rubbish like that

10:00:50woodensouli typed svn revert -R ./ and it worked
10:01:05woodensoulsvn status gives me a list of files, but no M designation
10:01:11GodEaterddalton: yes - it's the current directory
10:01:11ddaltonits working thanks.
10:02:05linuxstbwoodensoul: Yes, "svn status" shouldn't show any modified files after you type svn revert...
10:03:00woodensoulthen possibly not all the files were reverted?
10:03:13woodensoulthere is a question mark next to the files listed by svn status
10:03:29GodEaterwoodensoul: no, ALL the files were reverted, that's why there's no M next to any of them
10:03:36B4gderwoodensoul: those are files not controlled by svn
10:03:48B4gder"svn -q status" hides those
10:03:58woodensoulthey are all either .exe or .orig files
10:04:34linuxstbYes, as B4gder said, those are new files you've created which are not part of SVN. The ? means svn doesn't know those files.
10:05:06woodensoulI see.
10:05:20linuxstbYou can delete them if you wish, or just leave them - they shouldn't cause any harm.

10:05:48morrijrapart from the chip port issues, do folks see the lack of buttons/controls to be a problem for rockbox? It'll be a totally different type of interface won't it?
10:06:14linuxstbYou're talking about the ipod touch?
10:06:30B4gderI don't consider that a real problem
10:06:34Zagorme neither
10:06:34B4gderjust a challange
10:06:35pixelmaGodEater: I believe the "tvg" in the forum had problems with later revisions of rockbox and posted in this nano thread too...
10:06:46Zagorwe discussed this about a week ago
10:06:49linuxstbYes, that's just a programming problem which is solvable...
10:06:59GodEaterpixelma: I know - I'm just getting fed up of his whining
10:07:08linuxstbThe encryption and completely new hardware is the problem...
10:07:31GodEaterand the lack of docs
10:07:56linuxstband the roads, and education, and wine, and ...
10:08:11GodEaterkids these days
10:08:19morrijrZagor: must have missed that conversation; sorry
10:08:20GodEaterall this were fields etc etc
10:08:28Lloreanpixelma: It's still pointless to report bugs that happen in a 500 revision old version, even if he's unwilling to update to the current version. Odds are decent his partition was corrupted by the main Nano bug, or he's experiencing the main Nano bug in a lesser form, anyway
10:08:41Zagormorrijr: come to think of it, it was probably several weeks ago. never mind.
10:11:08linuxstbB4gder: Do you think it's worth adding the new ipod models as unsupported on the front page? I'm not sure - the list is growing longer than the supported list now...
10:11:35B4gderhm, let's wait and see
10:11:48B4gderit'll be a bit annoying with a long list of unsupported ones
10:12:56linuxstbMaybe change what is in brackets to "2nd Gen Nano and later ipods are not supported" ?
10:13:00scorchelinuxstb: i wouldnt think so...the unsupported list is to avoid confusion, and as long as they call the new ipod "classic", we shouldnt worry...although nano 3rd gen might be added
10:13:03peturremove the unsupported list and just write "if your model is not in the list, it is not supported"
10:13:34Zagorscorche: actually, many people will likely think "classic" means it's an older model and thus supported...
10:13:48B4gderyes, we should perhaps make it clear that *only* the mentioned models are support and all others are not
10:13:52Zagorbut I think we should move that whole section to a wiki page and make a big nice chart with images and all
10:14:15B4gderalso because for some reason people don't look for this kind of info on the front page
10:14:24B4gderthey need a different page for it
10:14:25peturwith bright green and red indications
10:14:42LloreanZagor: We already have a nice big chart with pictures... Maybe just some clear text saying "Only these players are supported"?
10:15:08B4gderthe build one isn't as explicit
10:15:16B4gderlike there's no e200R on it
10:15:17Zagorunfortunately I don't think it's clear enough...
10:15:20B4gdernor x5l x5v etc
10:17:24LloreanWe could make that page more explicit too then.
10:17:32linuxstbI have to say that I like the "Quick Links" table on home page...
10:17:33LloreanFor one thing, so people aren't uncertain what to download
10:18:22Zagorlinuxstb: yeah our front page is a bit cluttered
10:18:52woodensoulI deleted my entire rockbox directory and check out the source again. The build seems to be going fine now.
10:19:32woodensoulIf I want to change the gigabeat WPS keymap to what it used to be. Do I need to change any source files other than gigabeat-keymap.c?
10:19:50ZagorIPL says about the iPod Touch: "Will probably not be supported because homebrew software is already possible." anyone know what they mean with that?

10:20:05ivan`it means that apple won
10:20:24LloreanZagor: I imagine they expect the same hacks as work on the iPhone to work on it.
10:20:31linuxstbI asssume home-brew is possible on the iphone, so they're guessing the touch will be the same... But I know nothing about the iphone...
10:20:41B4gderipl isn't exactly jumping to new targets very often anyway
10:20:56Zagorso they won't support it because ... it's possible? makes no sense.
10:21:08B4gderipl is not like rockbox
10:21:15B4gderthey don't do a music player firmware repalcement
10:21:35linuxstbI think the IPL devs see it as a supplement to the Apple firmware, rather than a genuine replacement.
10:21:35B4gderthey make a platform to run custom applications on
10:21:53B4gderand if the OF can run custom applications, there's no point in using ipl

10:23:59GodEaterthis is essentially the same as the Rockbox "port" to that motorola phone then
10:24:09GodEaterso if someone can get SDL running on the new touch
10:24:11Zagorgosh, their latest code is from may???
10:24:14GodEaterthen you can have "Rockbox" there too
10:24:16*Zagor stops looking there
10:24:51B4gderZagor: i believe ipl is much more distributed so there are activities on other areas that are more recent
10:25:11linuxstbPlus their svn server has been unavailable for a few months...
10:25:15Zagorp2p development :)
10:25:37Zagorlinuxstb: yeah and the link to download source contains the last svn revision - from may
10:25:41linuxstbI believe they're in the process of finding and migrating to a new server.
10:26:15linuxstbBut yes, even with an svn server, development seems to be very widely distributed - the opposite to Rockbox.
10:28:03*linuxstb googles and finds lots of download links for third-party iphone apps, but no technical details...
10:29:32Zagorcan you write macosx apps without actually owning/using macosx?
10:30:23linuxstbIt just uses gcc, so you should be able to setup a cross-compiling environment.

10:31:16Zagorwhat about the libraries? part of their GUI is proprietary, isn't it?

10:34:23linuxstbOr the "hack" would be porting the SDK to linux, rather than linux to the device...

11:48:40bluebrotherassuming it's a chip without public available documentation, most likely yes.
11:49:05advcomp2019one thing i did read is that the new nano can do videos
11:49:37LinusNi also expect the new ipod to be a lot better protected, with signed binaries etc
11:49:42mikae1my bet is either get one of these and hope there'll be a rockbox release or modding a 2g mini. 16 gb flash and new battery.
11:49:58mikae1i think i'll go for the latter then.

11:56:28mikae1why didn't they try harder with the 5.5g ipod?
11:56:50LinusNbecause it's the same platform as 5G

12:44:07jbr-loverhi all
12:45:13jbr-loverI have a problem concerning my DC connector. follwoing situation..
12:45:36linuxstbI assume you have an Archos Jukebox Recorder?
12:45:53linuxstbIf so, which version? If not, which device?
12:46:10jbr-loverI am blind, and therefore requested a repair facility near me to solder the DC connector, cause it fell into the device.
12:46:22jbr-loversorry.. Recorder V1
12:46:24jbr-lover20 GB
12:46:39*linuxstb pings LinusN and amiconn in case they can help
12:47:31jbr-loverthe guys at repair said, impossible without a spare part, but they were unable to locate spare connectors. the man explained to me that the plus pole is inside, while the rest of the connector could be gotten out. but the plus is broken, and they say it cannot be resoldered...

12:51:57jbr-loverthanks, I will hang in here. other then that, no problem with rockbox or the jukebox, has always wororked fine. and it is super that menu items can be made to speak.

13:13:09B4gderI don't have any strong opinion since C is the primary language we use
13:13:10linuxstbamiconn: Are you thinking of the VB code?
13:13:29linuxstbI looked at that yesterday, and thought the same...
13:13:55amiconnThe vbscript sticks to the indent-by-4 and line length conventions, but not to the variable names
13:13:57B4gderit isn't stricly necessary that the C rules are the best suitable for other languages
13:14:15linuxstbI think it would make sense to do what VB programmers normally do (for better or for worse)...
13:14:43amiconn(even though vb isn't format free and wrapping a line needs a continuation character - the _ )
13:21:44Zagorjbr-lover: the guy could be right, the connector might be discontinued. one solution would be to use another dc-connector connected with wiring. then you'd get it ugly hanging on the outside, but at least it'd work.
13:22:31Zagorjbr-lover: another option is to search for an old broken archos to strip that part from

14:13:51Dark_ApostropheIs the iAudio X5L any good?
14:14:15B4gderit is fine

14:14:44Dark_ApostropheI live in Norway - finding stuff here isn't exactly a walk in the park.
14:14:49linuxstbDo you want flash-based or a hard disk?
14:15:15Dark_ApostropheIf there are any that have ridiculously large flash drives, that's ok, but I'll probably need a drive

15:29:40B4gdertime to sprinkle with printf()s...

16:15:50Jdgordonok, the I wont bother puting a call out on the mailing lists for a guienea pig :p
16:15:55linuxstbJdgordon: I think you need a dump of the partition table (MBR) though - to see what it actually looks like.
16:16:02B4gderah yes
16:16:21linuxstbSomehow you need to locate the start of the firmware partition...
16:16:29 Quit _m4yh3m ("dreaming in digital - living in realtime - thinking in binary - talking in IP ::--:: Welcome to our world")
16:17:05Jdgordonthe mbr is the first few sectors or something isnt it?
16:17:20linuxstbThe very first sector - 512 bytes.
16:21:39low_lightlinuxstb: regarding the ram on the c200...according to the image here the ram is Infineon HYB18L256160BF
16:22:14low_lightthe product brief ( says its "256 Mb"
16:22:25linuxstbOK, so the standard 32MB then.
16:22:51linuxstbI just wondered, as I can't remember how the bootloader is using RAM - it could be trying to use something in the 2nd 16MB region.
16:23:09 Quit kubiixaka (Connection timed out)
16:23:22Jdgordonis there an app which can turn the mbr.bin into something simple to view? or do I need to find the format somewhere?
16:23:34linuxstbRockbox can...
16:23:43linuxstbJust display the partinfo information in your app...
16:24:23low_lightlinuxstb: what do I need to get sansapatcher to work on the c200?
16:24:52linuxstblow_light: Firstly, is there a second, firmware partition on the disk?
16:25:35low_lightyes (Rockbox sees 2 partitions)
16:25:48linuxstbAre you using Linux?
16:27:22low_lightNot at the moment...I'm going to try to boot a livecd later and image the drive with dd
16:28:59linuxstbIt's going to be a little work to get sansapatcher working with the c200. It's based on ipodpatcher, which supports installing different bootloaders to different devices, but that functionality wasn't included in sansapatcher.
16:29:55linuxstbSo it will require a bit of copying and pasting to add that to sansapatcher as well.
16:30:35linuxstbYou'll then need to work out how the firmware partition differs from an E200, and modify it appropriately.

20:35:57linuxstbThen create a new build directory (e.g. mkdir build-boot) and then cd into it.
20:36:21linuxstbThen you run ../tools/configure, select the c200, then b for bootloader, then "make"
20:36:38linuxstbThat should give you a .mi4 file you can install on your c200.
20:37:03linuxstb(assuming low_light has checked all the required changes into SVN - I haven't been following his commits)

20:52:41eigmafrom what I've seen, there are two types of USB support in devices: dedicated hardware (firmware just flips a switch and suddenly the HDD is handed over to some kind of USB MSD controller) and software (the firmware bridges between the HDD and the USB MSD standard). which does Rockbox support, and how well?
20:53:08eigmaI suppose the former is trivial to support once you know where the switch is.

20:55:50eigmalinuxstb: I see. thanks.
20:56:49linuxstbWhere Rockbox doesn't have USB connectivity, you need to use the original firmware. On some devices (e.g. ipods), Rockbox detects a USB connection and automatically starts the disk mode of the original firmware. On others you have to start the OF manually.
20:57:18eigmaI see. that's still a nice fallback (automatically starting the firmware)

22:36:37LloreandelYsid: Your computer can't run it, or the accessibility features in QT don't meet your standards?
22:37:00delYsidLlorean: on linux (which is what I use) Qt is not accessible at all, so I cant use it...

22:38:13LloreandelYsid: Well, are you saying the functionality doesn't work at all?
22:38:17LloreanIt just does nothing?
22:38:27delYsidLlorean: correct.
22:38:41bluebrotherwell, some of the kde guys seem to work on a Qt-ATK bridge
22:39:09n1sMyAdler: did you have to do the UMS trick to install rockbox
22:39:14delYsidbluebrother: I am very involved with the accessibility stack on linux, I know it will at least take 6 months or more.
22:39:18MyAdleryes i do
22:39:19LloreandelYsid: I seem to recall people having some success with it, so I'm tempted to think it's more likely something not configured properly. Have you gone to QT support channels and sought more information on this?
22:39:26bluebrotherunfortunately that web page seems to be down.
22:39:32delYsidthey are discussing this since *years* and nothing usable emerged yet.
22:39:41bluebrotherah. And what's the current status?
22:39:53bluebrotheris there any web site giving an overview?
22:40:10delYsidLlorean: please believe me, it does not work. I am really quite involved with a11y on linux.
22:40:50delYsidbluebrother: the AT-SPI/ATK uses corba, and Qt/KDE does not want to use this, that is the status since about 3 years now.
22:40:52LloreandelYsid: Well that's the thing, I've heard people claim it's worked for them.
22:40:56delYsidbut they keep claiming they support it.
22:41:04LloreandelYsid: So claiming that it is completely unfunctioning seems to be going a bit too far, to me.
22:41:16bluebrotherI googled around a bit the last days and as far as I found Qt wants to use dbus.
22:41:17n1sMyAdler: then you should hold down a button when connecting the USB while in rockbox, I guess it's the select button
22:41:18LloreandelYsid: Or are you saying "It doesn't function with my system"?
22:42:12delYsidLlorean: no, the problem is Qt implements an API since Qt4, but there is no screen reader (a program that can use the API) yet.
22:42:18delYsidso it is effectively not working at all.
22:42:46delYsidjust believe me, I really know what I am talking here.
22:43:03delYsidanyway, I'll write myself a script that does it.
22:43:08Bagderon linux that is
22:43:19Bagdersince clearly it speaks on windows
22:43:39bluebrotheryou might want to look into adding the command line interface to rbutil ;-)
22:43:42Bagderjust wanted to clarify
22:43:48delYsidwell, maybe, I dont use windows.
22:44:00bluebrotherwhich is somewhat planned but needs quite some work
22:44:06Bagderstill, saying "qt4 isn't accessible" isn't completely true
22:44:22Bagdersince it is qt4 on linux that has the problems
22:44:24delYsidBagder: you sound like a trolltech guy :-)
22:44:44MyAdlergreat thanx, seems to have worked
22:44:45LloreandelYsid: My googling suggests at least Orca claims to support AT-SPI?
22:44:45BagderI consider the fact that many people don't use linux
22:44:59delYsidBagder: that, doesnt help me :-)

22:45:34 Quit pepie34 ("Ex-Chat")
22:46:00delYsidLlorean: yes, Orca supports AT-SPI, but Qt has no bridge to AT-SPI yet
22:46:32LloreandelYsid: QT4 claims to. Is the documentation incorrect?
22:46:44delYsidLlorean: yes, the documentation is incorrect.
22:46:50bluebrotherby what means?
22:46:56delYsidI was baffled as well when I read that.
22:46:59delYsidits just a lie
22:47:05bluebrotherI read about two different approaches AT-SPI
22:47:13delYsidif you ask the KDE people, they will confirm it, but they will be reluctant about it :-)
22:47:45delYsidanyway, thanks for your info.
22:47:51LloreandelYsid: What about Gnome people?
22:48:07delYsidLlorean: GTK2 is accessible via orca since about 2 years now.
22:48:26delYsidGTK2, openoffice and java use AT-SPI
22:48:43delYsidbut Qt does not want to use CORBA, so they implemented an API without a bridge to anything on linux.
22:48:57bluebrotherso what is Qt using? The docs claim it's AT-SPI
22:49:11delYsidbluebrother: yes, I know, and that is false!!!
22:49:30bluebrotherbut what are they using if it's not AT-SPI?
22:49:39delYsidnothing :-)

22:54:55bluebrotherLlorean: yes, at least on windows.

22:55:55delYsidLlorean: on linux, currently, "nothing at all", at least from an end-user perspective.
22:56:13bluebrotherI haven't done test on linux, but information about screen readers on linux are really hard to find.
22:56:26bluebrotherat least if you're not familiar with that "scene"
22:56:37delYsidthere is only orca really on linux
22:56:51delYsidand I know that code, I patched it in the past, and there is no Qt support at all in orca.
22:57:06Lloreanbluebrother: I was just curious if the functionality is "enabled" in the linux binary on the wiki page
22:57:19delYsidand as long as Qt provides no AT-SPI bridge, that means nothing works.
22:57:32bluebrotherLlorean: the functionality is provided by a Qt plugin which needs to be compiled in when build statically.
22:57:48delYsidLlorean: ideally, an app should not have to care, the accessibility part is enabled in the toolkit, not app-specific
22:57:52bluebrotherI had the impression that there's something fishy about this on the linux binary but I haven't investigated yet.
22:57:58*bluebrother found an interesting web page:
