00:06:11dfktwould it be possible to have album art as backdrop, a semi-transparent layer over it, and text over that?
00:06:31dfkthaving text in the same viewport as the transparent layer eats through the layer:
00:06:49dfkthaving it in a different viewport cuts it off:
00:07:04dfkt(but scrolling lines don't affect the backdrop album art ;)

00:27:23OzzieJacksdfkt: in your second example by "cuts it off" do you mean that the new viewport is cutting off the semi-transparent layer?
00:29:26OzzieJacksdfkt: how big is the viewport with the text in it? Is it cutting it of or cutting through it (eating through it like the text did in example 1)?

00:32:47dfktOzzieJacks, right, the text viewport wasn't limited... limiting it to 20px height gives this -
00:33:28dfktso i guess it needs 3 layers to achieve thant :/

00:55:56kugelchanging lcd size at runtime isn't as simple as I thought
00:56:32JdGordonget it working for boot time first
00:56:59kugelthat's easy and working
00:58:01JdGordonand also look at
00:58:19JdGordonwhich is zagors uncommited changes to his svn tree for te lcd stuff
00:58:28kugelthe problem is all the viewports are initialized with the boot time resolution, when it switches the vps are wrong
00:59:02JdGordoniiuc Zagor added a SYS_ notification so things can sort them selves out when that happens
01:00:09kugelthat's not going to work well
01:00:26 Quit Rower85 (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
01:00:55JdGordonwhy not?
01:00:59kugela) SYS_* is handled in misc.c and not where the viewports are, b) a callback for every shitty viewport is a waste
01:04:37kugelI wonder if it would be possible to fix viewports at lcd_set_viewport()?
01:05:03 Quit DerPapst (Quit: Leaving.)
01:05:25JdGordononly if it is obvioudsly wrong
01:05:45JdGordonI tihnk you are worrying baout a non existant problem
01:06:02JdGordonthe skin engine *must* be reinisialised, so that snot an issue
01:06:13JdGordonand just about all other screens reinit all their viewports on entry
01:06:18JdGordonso the SYS_callback is enough
01:06:21kugelboot time res might not be sufficient on android. if coming from an activity that shows the statusbar (and we hide it) we get the wrong res from the system (IIRC)

01:13:24 Join passstab [0] (
01:14:45kugelJdGordon: depending on how far we go the screen res change could come in at any time (thinking resizing the sdl window), like when a screen that initialises it vp on entering is running
01:17:19kugelI don't think we can do that any time soon though :)
01:17:35dfktgevaerts, the album art loading line in wavy is %Cl(0,0,100,100,c,c) - i know a "c" centers it - but what's the second "c" for?
01:18:35JdGordonkugel: right, so the current screen needs to handle the SYS_ notification in its event loop and then send it to the default handler to do the reset
01:21:51kugelJdGordon: with my current work I don't even get to the main menu. android gets a new res somewhere during the init procedure and then everything just goes horribly wrong
01:22:36JdGordonits broken then :)
01:23:38kugelJdGordon: btw I found your lcd_framebuffer pointer has 2 problems. 1) it can't work on android because it doesn't call FBADDR on lcd_update(), the system always draws from lcd_static_framebuffer. 2) it doesn't fixup lcd_backdrop_offset

04:36:01[Saint]Patches welcome.
04:37:12[Saint]In all seriousness, probably because no plugin uses volume keys as control keys.

04:40:38[Saint_]From what I know of the targets key layout, it shouldn't have to at all.
04:41:23verbtimup is for pause/start, down changes the layout, left and right is for the axes
04:41:52[Saint_]doesn't it have a center key?
04:42:12verbtimit's for highspeed.
04:43:05[Saint_]Off the top of my head, I can't remember how the iPods (and all similarly layed out DPAD based targets do it), but it _should_ do the same.

05:31:37[Saint]GIMP, IrfanView, etc.
05:31:48[Saint]"Image editors that don't suck", basically.
05:32:51[Saint]You can also just use any old bitmap you want.
05:33:01[Saint]Transparency isn't a necessity.
05:33:42[Saint]You can also use FF00FF as "transparency" in a "normal" bitmap.
05:33:45OzzieJacksThe wiki also needs updating since it states that the icon files are 16-bit and color <255,0,255> is transparent but doesn't mention being able to use files with actual transparency.

05:59:05[Saint]As a side note to there any harm in clearing the registered users that never created pages (and therefore never logged in, ever) from WikiUsersGroup?
05:59:20[Saint]I can see there's a large handful of such users.
06:00:48[Saint]If they do indeed want edit rights, asking them to re-apply isn't too much of a big deal is it?
06:02:58[Saint]A rough count gives me 42 users given edit rights that never actually completed the registration by actually signing in.

10:51:55JdGordonwe switched because it is in every way better than FS

10:58:02*[Saint] doesn't see gerrit as being any better than FS for the "dump it and run" style authors.
10:58:24n1sin this case it's easier to just revert one other change for now
10:58:39kugelnext question is how the author syncs his clone with your changes

11:00:38kugel[Saint]: in this case gerrit will auto-abandon after a timeout
11:02:32n1sgevaerts: i think i'll revert 0cc6ba0 for now and kill that file later
11:02:34[Saint]Which is what I liked about flyspray...a 2 year old patch not suitable for commit can still prove a useful starting point for someone else.
11:02:43bluebrotherwe have auto-abandon on reviews? Since when?
11:03:10kugel[Saint]: this is exactly the bit rot we do not want anymore
11:03:26bluebrother[Saint]: it will still hang around in the repository.
11:03:47[Saint]kugel: No...what you guys didn't want was the air of responsibility.
11:03:54[Saint]them being there did no harm.
11:04:26bluebrother[Saint]: the problem is that it gets too much data to keep any kind of overview
11:04:57bluebrother(and people not wanting to feel responsible, but that's both for contributors and committers)
11:05:09kugelit does harm in that there are so many of them that nobody wants to have a look at them
11:05:27[Saint]search by date. done.
11:05:30bluebrotherthe same will happen with gerrit
11:05:50bertriksearching in FS is rather limited, like you can't search by target IIRC
11:06:11bluebrotherthe main difference is that gerrit encourages contributors to work on their patches while FS didn't
11:08:04[Saint]I'm having a hard time trying to think of how...but, ok.
11:08:22 Join DerPapst [0] (
11:08:56[Saint]New patches are relatively easy to miss in FS, but in time that will happen with gerrit too I imagine.
11:09:05kugelI think we have already by now committed a lot more external contributions than ever with FS in the same time
11:09:32[Saint]I put that down to "new toy" syndrome.
11:10:33kugeln1s: I don't suppose you want to wait for wtachi(?) to sync his work?
11:10:38n1swell, the barrier to push a change from gerrit is much lower but i don't think it will help much with people just dumping changes in and leaving them there
11:11:45*bluebrother agrees with n1s
11:11:53kugelI expect you can update it for him (and I won't complain if you do) but wtachi will probably get problems to incooperate your update in his local tree
11:12:19JdGordoni got the impression he did the dump to be rid of it
11:12:21bluebrother[Saint]: one of the nice things is that gerrit makes it much easier to actually do a review. No need to download a diff and apply it first −− then changes are in git so you can use gitweb to browse them
11:12:38 Join lebellium [0] (
11:12:50[Saint]bluebrother: thats the only real benefit I see so far.
11:13:10kugelJdGordon: if that's true we should even more wait for him to update, to see if he's going to work further on it
11:13:11bluebrotheryou want to comment on a specific part of a change? Add a comment in the review. No need to write stuff like "I don't like the change made to file foo.c in line x"
11:13:17n1skugel: sure i can ask him to do that, i wasn't planning of taking that route btw, as the only problem is that the standalone makefile was deleted by gevaerts yesterday i was just going to revert that and apply the two changesets that touch it before removing it
11:13:23[Saint]I just need to convince myself that its worth the loss of the archive of potentially useful non-applied patches on FS
11:13:34bluebrotheryou want to merge a review? Just press a button. No need to download a diff, apply it, and thing of a commit message for yourself
11:13:46bluebrother[Saint]: the archive is still there.
11:14:16 Join MethoS- [0] (~clemens@
11:14:22[Saint]bluebrother: But, it won't increase. Rejected patches are rejected now, poof, gone.
11:14:45[Saint]though amusingly you can still upload patches to FS ;)
11:14:52kugeln1s: moving all the codecs is really invasive. we should wait to see if JdGordon is right before doing it, shouldn't we?
11:14:54[Saint]maybe we should stop that?
11:15:16n1skugel: is right about what?
11:15:36kugel"< JdGordon> i got the impression he did the dump to be rid of it""
11:15:49kugeli.e. that he dumped his gsoc work to be done with it and never come back
11:16:49n1smaybe, i don't see why that matters though?
11:16:51[Saint]How does one determine correctness here?
11:16:59n1s[Saint]: wait forever
11:17:06[Saint]Ahhh ;)
11:17:13[Saint]Yes, silly me.
11:17:41kugeln1s: do we want this in if he isnt going to maintain it at all? who will do it?
11:17:48bluebrother[Saint]: git ls-remote git:// refs/changes/*
11:17:52JdGordonyes, we do
11:18:07n1sif this modularization is something we want i don't think it matters if the original author is no longer around
11:18:35[Saint]bluebrother: thanks for that.
11:18:57kugelthere's also the "abandoned" link in gerrit
11:19:11n1skugel: how does the maintenance of the codecs change when they are moved to a different dir with mainly some difference to build system and api?
11:19:14kugeland I think you can filter the reason it was abandoned
11:19:24bluebrotherit's the same as with people contributing a single patch: if we want the feature someone needs to maintain it. We can't expect the original author to maintain his code forever.
11:20:07bluebrotherotherwise "committers" would need to do everything.
11:20:23n1sthese patches are mainly moving files and improving the separation of the codecs and dsp from the rest of the core
11:20:25bluebrotherand if the patch contributed is actually a larger patch series ... well, what's the difference?
11:20:37n1sit's not really a thing to maintain imo
11:21:05kugelokay then
11:21:18[Saint]n1s: I just aught myself wondering how much "maintaining" this would actually need also.
11:21:30[Saint]presumably its a "commit and it works" thing.
11:21:40[Saint]*caught myself
11:21:52kugelI just fear the librbcodec thing is going to rod like e.g. the theme editor
11:22:09bluebrotherand if we have tests there will be even less maintainance work since there's an easy way to proof it's not broken.
11:22:32n1skugel: it is in use by all our builds
11:23:01[Saint]the theme editor got neglected because the builds needn't care if it functions or not.
11:23:13[Saint]if this breaks, we'll know about it, and want to fix it.
11:23:30bluebrotheryeps. If the theme editor had been part of the commit builds it would have been fixed long ago
11:23:31n1sand with gevaerts' changes the warble tool can be added to the automated builds
11:24:19kugel[Saint], bluebrother: I don't mean "it compiles" only. many new tags aren't handled by the theme editor too
11:24:54[Saint]because they were added after the theme editor fell badly out of sync.
11:26:22bluebrotherthe Theme Editor is broken because of (a) buflib, (b) new tags, (c) nobody caring (and noticing?)
11:26:46[Saint]I understand the concern you have, and it would apply to pretty much anything else...but not here, people will notice /pretty/ quickly if playback breaks.
11:26:50bluebrotherif it would be only new tags it should simply ignore them. But right now it doesn't compile at all
11:27:21[Saint]bluebrother: I believe you're correct. It happily ignores tags it doesn't understand iirc
11:27:48bluebrother[Saint]: at least IIRC it's been designed in a way to do that.
11:27:53JdGordonbluebrother: and d) beiber dissapearing and it being c++ and i tinhk only me with an interest in having it work (though i wont touch it as it is)
11:28:23[Saint]as cool as it is, "themers" seem to like coding by hand.
11:28:40JdGordoni tihnk because there really isnt anything better
11:28:44[Saint]it'd be great for newcomers, but I imagine they'd switch to "by hand" eventually too.
11:28:47JdGordonthe editor could have fixed that but alas
11:29:00bluebrother[Saint]: isn't that what the Theme Editor is for? At least it's some kind of editor with some auto-preview :)
11:29:17bluebrotherJdGordon: any list of things that need to get adjusted to make it work again?
11:29:39[Saint]It was never quite 100%, and the C++ bit scares me right of :)
11:29:42bluebrotherI'd really want to have it working but right now I'm having trouble to find time for maintaining Rockbox Utility ...
11:29:58bluebrotherC++ isn't that much of a problem ...
11:30:10bluebrotherat least once you get a bit used to the OOP approach.
11:30:13JdGordonbluebrother: honestly I never liked the apporach and i think if someone wanted to fix it they should only use the UI and rebuild the tag handlers from scratch
11:30:36bluebrother(which is something you can use in C as well −− though the language doesn't have OOP functionality built-in)
11:30:57kugelJdGordon: we had the other appraoch too. it equally rotted
11:31:05JdGordonat the very least it should be using a factory pattern and a single Tag class
11:31:18JdGordonkugel: ?
11:31:42kugelif you mean do everything with rockbox up to drawing to framebuffer
11:32:43JdGordonanyway, I fully expect LUA to make the entire skinning engine irrelevant in the coming year
11:32:53JdGordonthe entire UI should be lua driven :)

12:49:11lebelliumHello JdGordon, gevaerts, [Saint] and the other, I simplified the most possible my SBS to find where is the issue but still can't find it does someone understand why the menu viewport disappears when it skips to the next track?
13:01:45 Quit [Saint] (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
13:03:49lebelliumI also tried with a single viewport (not conditional) and the same occurs
13:08:28[Saint__]There's an issue with conditional ui vieqports that means you used to need a beeline between %Vi this not the case anymore?
13:08:53[Saint__]Damn autocomplete.
13:09:10[Saint__]There's an issue with conditional ui vieqports that means you used to need a *newline* between %Vi this not the case anymore?
13:10:45kugelwhat issue?
13:11:17[Saint__]"It didn't work" :)
13:12:08[Saint__]Conditional ui viewports needed a newline between the %Vi calls, and I never recall this being (deliberately) fixed.
13:12:24kugelis it on flyspray?
13:13:34kugel"Someone" should also report blank line issue
13:13:46kugelthe problem is probably simple test cases
13:13:50[Saint__]Nope, its in the "don't put it on flyspray, I'll remember it and get around to it eventually (but you might need to remind me)" bank of knowledge that is Mr. Gordon.
13:14:22*kugel wonders why he says something like said
13:14:43kugela missed report is much worse than a superfluous one
13:15:01[Saint__]Its usually when I "discover" something he already knows/knew about.
13:15:33[Saint__]This seems to have either been fixed and I missed it, or it fixed itself, though.
13:15:43lebelliumI'm sorry but I don't really understand "newline between %Vi calls". What should I modify concretely to get it working (if ever possible)?
13:16:38[Saint__]Well....%Vi calls used to require a newline to separate them. That might be a good start.
13:17:31[Saint__]Your code is a little backwards, but, it _should_ work fine still.
13:18:28lebelliumyou mean a blank or commented line between %Vi(X..) and %Vi(Z...)?
13:19:27[Saint__]I suspect that's not actually the problem here if it works at all though.
13:19:41lebelliumindeed that doesn't seem to fix the issue
13:20:51[Saint__]It just caught my interest as that used to be the only way to get conditional ui viewports working. And I don't recall it being deliberately fixed (though it may well have been).
13:22:22lebelliumwell I also have these conditional UI viewports on my clip zip theme and it works fine but it doesn't include the new layering (no %VB tag)
13:26:04[Saint__]Your code looks benign enough for me to suspect this is an internal error, not one you're creating.
13:26:31[Saint__]Post the example sbs and a description on flyspray.
13:27:12[Saint__](Then poke Jd with the FS# in here after doing so)
13:28:04kugelhah, backtrace in panicf, very useful
13:28:29[Saint__]The only issues I see with your sbs are purely cosmetic, and even then, its mostly personal preference.

13:32:07lebelliumwell drawing the menu viewport fullscreen when the mini-player is OFF was indeed a personal obsession, just cosmetic and I'm happy to get that done with your help yesterday But I guess the menu viewport disappearing is not a matter of personal preference, it's an annoying bug for anyone. I'll try to report it on flyspray as you say. Never did that so I *try*
13:34:43[Saint__]Oh, I didn't mean the sbs (as in visually), but rather the layout of the sbs code itself.
13:34:59***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:35:13[Saint__]I have some (probably very personal) slightly different conventions.
13:37:38lebelliumah the code itself... I hate mine too, it doesn't look nice and clean at all. It's a pain for me to read my own code ahaha
13:39:15[Saint__]I'm a fan of the theme, for what its worth. A while ago I went to a ridiculous degree of effort to recreate the Apple iPod OF for a few different targets.
13:39:24[Saint__]So, I feel your pain. :)
13:40:11lebelliumWhat "reported version" shoud I select in the bug report?
13:41:26[Saint__]Add the version ID in the description if its not a release build (which it isn't).
13:43:01[Saint__]It should allow you to select "current build", then make sure you state the vetoing ID in the description.
13:43:18[Saint__]*version ID

14:25:55JdGordonwhat is really needed is for someone with the inclination to copyy the stock cabbie themes list and make it a sbs with as few lines as possible
14:26:17JdGordonthen we can actuallly use the skin lists as *the* list drawer and makesure it works 100%

14:28:40fs-bluebot [Fuze+] The SD card is not reported in usb mode (bugs, new)

14:30:08 Join dfkt [0] (dfkt@unaffiliated/dfkt)
14:31:26rarogAt least this is some part of configuration/information that OF provides while rb just ignores...
14:39:15rarogAnd I sill wonder, how to read information from dmesg"(Mode Sense: 0b 00 00 08" from RB vs. OF "Mode Sense: 3e 00 00 00". I can't find proper source of information, I think that this is jus another collection of flags.
14:40:34pamauryums is scsi based, the spec is really huge, there are bits everywhere unfortunately
14:43:01rarogdoh, I hoped for some proper documentation of a standard...
14:43:31rarogbut perhaps it's only given out to people paying license fees
14:45:25bertrikoh I think you can download the specs for free (or at least the draft specs), but you have to know exactly which specs to combine
14:46:05bertrikand to know which parts of the specs are actually used by the host OS
14:47:23raroga hard and fine bit of work to do then. :/
14:48:26bertrikwe should have documented the source documents already
14:51:02pamauryrarog: basically that's usb + usb mass storage + scsi, you need at least scsi SPC (primary commands) and probably block commands (SBC) or reduced bloc k(RBC)
14:54:45rarogsound like some voodoo to me. :D
14:55:04pamauryyeah I know, give me a minute to find links to them

15:17:24*[Saint__] isn't fond of the idea of drawing very basic lists with the skinned list theme magic
15:17:32[Saint__]There's no call for it.
15:17:50[Saint__]Too much code to do something *very* simple.
15:18:25[Saint__]If cabbie did anything fancy, I might agree...but, it doesn't, nor should it (IMO).
15:18:49kugelthe idea is to make it work so that the legacy list code can be removed
15:19:02kugelnot to make basic lists more fancy
15:19:22[Saint__]And break ~99% of all themes?
15:19:50kugelwhy break them?
15:20:01kugelI would assume a fallback sbs would be provided
15:20:31kugelmuch like the current classic statusbar is drawn using skin code now
15:20:51[Saint__]Well...iiuc, removing the in-core list drawing would break any theme that used its own sbs but didn't use skinned lists.
15:21:04[Saint__]Which is a LOT.
15:21:17kugelbut hardly 99%
15:21:30kugelbut I think compatiblity for those can be provided as well
15:21:45harrydehengstHi, rockbox on my sandisk clip zip crashes when I put in my 16GB microSDHC card... any ideas?
15:21:47[Saint__]And in all honesty, skinned lists are a bloody nightmare.
15:22:24kugelI'm surprised you say this :)
15:22:59[Saint__]"Providing compatibility" for themes not using skinned lists == leaving in-core list drawing in place.
15:23:08[Saint__]So, its kinda pointless.
15:23:43pamauryrarog: mass storage class:
15:23:44[Saint__]I'm not sure how it could be some otherwise without breakage.
15:23:55[Saint__]*be done
15:24:06kugelshould be simple. you can detect if a theme uses the skin list tags
15:24:17harrydehengstIt says "*PANIC* Stkov dircache bt pc: 0x3005950 A: 0x3005956 bt end"
15:24:35kugelif not act as if it would by calling default tags
15:24:57[Saint__]kugel: and what draws the lists if it doesn't? Or, what...refuse to render the sbs and draw some default?
15:25:13kugelthe skin code
15:25:37kugelthe skin code can easily draw the list even if the sbs does not specify skin list tags
15:25:59kugeljust needs to be implemented
15:26:13[Saint__]Isn't that what's being proposed to be removed? Or am I misunderstanding.
15:26:15kugelbut first of all the skin lists need to work properly, without regressions
15:26:41kugelno, currently the normal list code (not skin code) draws the normal lists
15:27:07kugelapps/gui/list.c, as opposed to apps/gui/skin_engine/*.c
15:27:28pamauryrarog: this might be of interest:
15:27:38[Saint__]I took "remove the inbuilt list code" to mean "skinned lists and only skinned lists will render lists from this point"
15:27:43rarogpamaury: Thx.
15:27:52[Saint__]Otherwise, what would be drawing the lists?
15:27:58pamauryrarog: they try "Reduced Block Commands" on google, there are several drafts, you want version 2 at least
15:28:06kugelyes, that doesnt necessarily mean the skin has to provide skin list tags
15:28:56pamauryrarog: as for primary commands, try "primary commands spc-2"
15:29:28[Saint__]kugel: but I'm not sure what would be drawing the lists if it didn't.
15:29:37[Saint__]I'm confused.
15:30:30kugelthe skin code
15:30:31 Join kevku [0] (~kevku@2001:470:28:773::)
15:30:52kugelwe could sort of hard code skin list tags for the case the skin doesn't provide them
15:31:38gevaertsrarog: do any other rockbox usb devices work for you?
15:32:03kugel[Saint__]: see how;a=blob;f=apps/gui/statusbar-skinned.c;h=fc9735da21d0fe69e4e2f9144e4d551a8e6afd00;hb=HEAD#l203 has the classic statusbar embedded
15:32:11[Saint__]Are the inbuilt lists *really* that bad that this is needed? Or is this just change for the sake of change?
15:32:29gevaerts[Saint__]: maintaining two separate bits of code?
15:32:45raroggevaerts: what do you mean? if you mean hardware, I have only fuze+, if you mean drives, they all work (with linux)
15:32:53[Saint__]To be really honest, to me, skinned lists are a novelty and little more.
15:33:30[Saint__]Too much of a nightmare for me to bother with. Its a lot of effort to do something really simple.
15:33:51[Saint__]Its really cool if you want a fancy sbs, but a but needless otherwise.
15:33:53kugelnothing is going to happen until the skin list work properly, with the same feature set as normal lists
15:34:12[Saint__] I wont hold me breath ;)
15:34:16kugelonce that's done you shouldn't notice the transition
15:34:35kugelit would be all internally
15:34:49gevaertsrarog: also, did you try with a different PID?
15:34:57 Quit nexea (Quit: nexea)
15:35:02kugel[Saint__]: nobody is working on it currently yes
15:35:04***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
15:35:45kugelnot even JdGordon who was heavily advocating them
15:37:14raroggevaerts: didn't try different PID, as my OF reset its settings and was trying MTP mode, after I reset it to MSC I didn't have the difference between RB and OF.
15:37:40[Saint__]I think the reason for that might be because its only really useful for rather extreme themes. Gevaerts style themes :)
15:38:09rarogin msc mode OF of fuze+ doesn't report PID.
15:38:13[Saint__]To draw just a simple list, its a lot of code to do something the core can make "just work".
15:38:42[Saint__]But...if you want to skew your lusts across the's awesome!
15:39:34gevaertsrarog: (a) a USB device *always* has a PID, and (b) the reason I asked you to try it was to make sure the problem isn't tied to the OF PID being treated differently somehow
15:41:34[Saint__]Another reason it didn't "take off" is the other useful thing skinned lists can do was negated by your list height patch, kugel.
15:42:02[Saint__]That's speculation of course, but it means skinned lists are useful only for very extreme cases.
15:42:36gevaerts[Saint__]: the reason they didn't take of was that they've bascially been broken until earlier this week
15:43:12[Saint__]gevaerts: I'm not so sure about took this long for someone to notice how broken they were.
15:43:15kugelthe item height itself was also the only thing that works (when I tried), skin lists are completely broken on touchscreen
15:43:47gevaerts[Saint__]: well, they were more broken than they used to be since the buflib change, but they didn't work well at all before that
15:43:56raroggevaerts: Ah, you mean idProduct, RB uses the same as OF does. Only bcdDevice differs (0.01 in RB and 1.00 in OF) and with iSerial (0 in RB and 5 in OF)
15:44:08gevaertsrarog: I KNOW IT USES THE SAME
15:45:11rarogI'm sorry and confused. :/ I can retest it with different PID in windows.

16:01:34gevaertsIt's there. "SDL Application - warble"
16:01:55gevaertsIt's cut of at "war" though
16:02:19n1sah yes, that's nice i missed that bit
16:02:39n1sdid you drop the -DDEBUG or fix the warnings?
16:03:29gevaertsThe warnings were caused by too much hackery in the __PCTOOL__ vs. SIMULATOR situation
16:03:44gevaertsThat's what I spent most of my time on last night
16:04:07gevaertsActually moving warble to the regular build system was minor in comparison
16:04:55n1soh, i only saw that they were for printf style formatting but i guess one of those defines implies some debug mode or other
16:05:47n1sthat's a mess i don't like either, the DEBUGF vs logf vs the various custom *debug macros/functions that just get redefined into each other in a big tangle
16:06:05gevaertsOh, right, that one. Not sure...

18:49:21amy_56Hi, I tried playing a .mpg file on my Sansa and it basically shut off. It displayed no video, played no audio and I had to press the power button for forever to get it to /really/ turn off. Is it just not fast enough to play video?
18:49:45bluebrotherthat depends on the video file
18:50:15evilnickIf the video is the correct dimensions/bitrate/codec for your sansa, then it should play fine
18:50:30bluebrotherfirst, it needs to be mpeg2 with mp3 audio. Second, you can't expect it to be powerful enough to scale the video. That means that you need to transcode your video.
18:50:35bluebrotherunless you already did that of course

23:17:54jlbiasiniI would like to work on gesture but on a more systematic approach that would allow to have it also on any touch device
23:18:03jlbiasinibut I'm for from it
23:19:11jlbiasinimy plan would be first to see if I can find a way to have a stable double touch on the rmi driver that pamaury wrote
23:20:24kugelstrange issue. I see some pixel garbage with %pv and transparent images (both image and backdrop). the garbage is not there when displaying the images individually
23:20:35jlbiasinithen I think that I would write some interface that any touch device could use unstead of virtual botton and implement gesture on it
23:21:28kugelbingo for the imagebin id!
23:21:31jlbiasinithen I will have to find a way to pass touchdevice info through USB to uisimulator
23:21:46jlbiasinifor test purpose
23:22:02saratogajlbiasini: ok that seems sensible, and would probably allow for changing how the lock function works in a neat way
23:22:03jlbiasinithen I would start implementing gesture
23:22:31jlbiasiniyes probably
23:22:51jlbiasiniand it' about works for years!! :D
23:23:08 Quit hillshum (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
23:25:44jlbiasiniIf this seems reasonable to ask I would ask on the dev about those locking stuff. But I'm a bit intimidated because of the history of the volume in hold...
23:26:10jlbiasinibut anyway I would like first to finish what I started on PLA

23:29:34saratogawith new platforms we have to reevaluate old design choices
23:29:39jlbiasinioh I have a question regarding cabbie theme: on fuze+ the arrow that represent random never get lighted even when random play is on. Is it on all target so or is it another problem with fuze+
23:30:10funmanLambdaCalculus37: USB is still broken for some nano2g, i remember my last commit worked for you but not for saint. and apparently even with that commit reverted there are still problems
23:30:21funmanfirst thing would be to find what is the last working commit
23:31:01jlbiasinisaratoga: the problem with gesture will be to see how or if we can/want to combinate the gesture with the old button way or simply start on a new interface system
23:31:04funmani could do that easily if i had one in my hands. how much is shipping to eastern Canada?
23:31:33jlbiasinibecause the button way can be really a problem to implement gesture on it
23:31:53saratogajlbiasini: couldn't you implement gestures as button presses?
23:32:06jlbiasinilike any _repeat button would conflict
23:32:18saratogabasically have the driver detect that you swipped right and then have it press the button corrisponding to right in software
23:32:56saratogayes you'll still have to go through and come up with a keymap, but provided you can get things like gesture detection working i don't see that its a huge problem to come up with a keymap
23:33:58jlbiasiniwell for examp a quick turn around would be to simply move all long press button to double click on gesture device
23:34:58jlbiasinibut as i said there really no use discussing this because it's like in year that I might be ready to start something on this. There is a lot of work to do before
23:35:13***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:35:23jlbiasinithe implementation of a testing method is mandatory
23:35:36saratogabecause it would take too long to test on device?
23:36:28jlbiasiniyes there are a buch of value to test individualy if you want to have it working properly
23:37:21saratogaif getting USB HID working is difficult, you could probably also log the output of the sensor to disk when making certain gestures and then develop code to recognize the prerecorded gestures
23:37:26jlbiasiniespecially if your code has to make difference between several stuff like virtual button, gesture and so on
23:38:00jlbiasinithat a good idea
23:38:08saratogawhat does the output of the sensor look like?
23:38:16saratogado it give you absolute position?
23:39:28pixelmajlbiasini - wasn't the issue with the repeat icon and solution to this mentioned in the anythingbutipod forums? I seem to remember something like this and thought the fix was committed but I could be wrong (or maybe it was for another screen size with a similar problem)
23:39:44jlbiasinion fuze+ we have alot of stuff absolute, relative, even gesture like double click, tap and hold... But if we want to have a general interface to handle several device only relying on absolute would be better I guess
23:40:05saratogayeah but what is the format of the data you get back from teh sensor?
23:40:30pixelmaa wrong image positioning in the viewport it was, if I remember correctly
23:40:35jlbiasiniint? I guess
23:41:46jlbiasinianyway if we build this interface uppon the driver we can set it to be what ever we want
23:44:59saratogai mean, what is the sensor actually telling you when you poll it? a bitmap of touched pixels, a preprocessed list of motions, something else?
23:45:08bluebrother^gevaerts: good point :)

23:50:24jlbiasinisaratoga: I didn't looked precisely yet. Like I said this is only long term plan - And most of wich I will have to learn before starting. the sensor get handle through the rmi driver into the button-target driver for what I see in the code of fuzeplus-button.c this is mostly int but I must admit that I'm not even sure that it is what you're talking about...
23:51:08saratogaany sensor is going to return integers (since sensor outputs are by definition integers until they're processed)
23:51:41saratogabut does the sensor give you raw data, or is it doing processing on the data before spitting it out?
23:51:42jlbiasinigesture are preprocessed list of motion
23:51:48saratogaah ok thats what i'm asking
23:51:59saratogaso its not even really a sensor you have access to, but some signal processor?
23:52:49jlbiasiniI'm not sure I prefer not to say anything because I really don't know more
23:53:18saratogawell if the sensor is doing a lot of the hard processing to figure out the motion for you, then implementing basic gestures might be pretty easy
23:53:21jlbiasinipamaury wrote the stuff, you would better ask him
23:53:59jlbiasinisaratoga: yes but the idea would be to write a general interface
23:54:02saratogafor instance if it just gives you a motion vector, detecting a swipe or a circle motion might be very little code (although probably getting it to work very dependably might take a lot more effort)
23:54:54saratogayes this could be implemented as a more generic gesture interface that receives motions from a touch driver and then maps them to button presses that the rest of rockbox understands
23:55:24saratogaso that things like rockbox on android could also use gestures
23:55:24jlbiasiniI think the button-target of any target using the gesture system should implement some absolute position fonction that the interface would use to interpret gesture over it
23:56:14jlbiasinibut like I said only idea for now
23:57:41jlbiasiniok bedtime
