Jaffa|tbb|: built-in one.00:48
Jaffa|tbb|: At the moment, the load is such that there's no reason for it not to survive indefinitely.00:48
*** _matthias_ has quit IRC00:52

ajturnerwhen did the N770 nav kit come out?03:11
timelyxrecently :)03:14
ajturnerthat's what I was thinking - not sure when I missed it03:14
ajturnerlooks interesting, what are they using for mapping?03:14
ajturnerteleatlas's stuff or something?03:14
timelyxthe vendor is responsible for it03:15
timelyxit's not nokia's03:15
timelyx(navicore)03:15
timelyxhttp://www.navicoretech.com/Consumer/NewsEvents/news/en_GB/NokiaNavicore770/03:15
ajturnerright, i assumed nokia was just repackaging something03:16
timelyxi don't think nokia's repackaging i03:16
timelyxt03:16
timelyxbut maybe i'm wrong03:16
ajturnerwell, selling it from their site03:16
ajturnerhrm, I would like to be able to do the same w/ Maemo mapper03:17
ajturnerby storing up large sets of mapping tiles03:17
* timelyx did that03:17
timelyx1gb mmc + lots of free time on my hands03:17
timelyxi'd suggest not doing that03:17
Juhazand you wouldn't actually get off-line routing that way, just maps03:18
timelyxhttp://www.europe.nokia.com/EUROPE_NOKIA_COM_3/Accessories/flash/data/xml/others/770NavigationKit.html03:18
ajturnertimelyx - what did you do?03:19
timelyxtraveled to the states w/ my 770, maemo mapper, and a bluetooth enabled cell phone or two03:19
ajturnerah, so you d/l'd enroute?03:19
ajturnerthat's my point - would be nice to precache03:20
timelyxand tried to slurp maps for large portions of the world manually in order to have a demo of the 770 w/o internet access03:20
timelyxi did precache03:20
ajturnerI'm hoping OpenStreetmaps makes it into Maemo Mapper03:20
timelyxi spent at least half in an hour @ LHR manually precaching by walking around the world03:20
ajturnerdemoing where?03:20
timelyxto random people i visited03:20
ajturnerwell, doing realtime nav using googlemaps is against the TOS03:20
timelyxi wasn't doing realtime anything03:20
ajturnermake it to michigan? ;)03:21
timelyxnot this trip, only silicon valley03:21
timelyxi was in michigan in 2002 and 200303:21
ajturneroutside detroit?03:22
timelyxann arbor both years and grand rapids the second year03:22
ajturnerah, yep03:22
ajturnerbut obviously SF is the place to be03:22
timelyxkinda depends on your definition of outside i suppose03:22
ajturnerheh03:22
ajturnerright- AA's don't think they're near Detroit, but they are03:22
ajturnerI live about 10 miles outside AA03:22
timelyxi took a greyhound bus back through detroit the first year, so i guess "not safely" would be one answer03:23
ajturnerheh03:23
* timelyx grumbles03:23
timelyxnokia's needs to pay people who speak English to write their text03:24
timelyxs/'s//03:24
ajturnermost of the people from Nokia I've met *aren't* finnish, so I wonder where they're from03:24
ajturnermost have been english, some italians03:24
timelyxrandom european countries+the far east03:25
timelyxvery few from the new world03:25
* timelyx wonders if india is considered far east03:25
* timelyx sighs03:26
timelyxi hope this article was written by a finn03:26
timelyxbecause if it was written by a native speaker, I'm really ashamed03:26
ajturnerI wouldn't be surprised03:26
timelyxthey can't even spell United States Government correctly :(03:28
*** _follower_ has quit IRC03:28
timelyxi suppose a brit could have written it, but i highly doubt that a brit would make such a mistake... oh well03:29
JaffaWhat's the text?03:32
timelyxurl i pasted a few screens ago03:33
*** matt_c has joined #maemo03:34
JaffaDefinitely non-native speaker. The lack of definite and indefinite articles is the giveaway.03:36
*** KrnlKlink has joined #maemo03:37
* timelyx sighs03:37
timelyxit's really unprofessional03:37
glasssometimes people who do speak native english write it not so well03:37
timelyxsometimes people who speak English natively can't write their way out of a paper bag03:38
timelyxthat doesn't make you a native speaker.03:38
timelyxthe mistakes native speakers make are very different from the ones non native speakers make, at least in general03:40
timelyxNote that in English, you're supposed to capitalize proper nouns, and languages, such as Finnish are proper nouns. This is unlike certain languages, such as Finnish.03:41
* timelyx rarely capitalizes anything on irc03:42

tigerttimelyx: we have lots of non-finnish people at nokia, but not _that_ many native english speakers. :)07:44

inzLots of words, but seemingly no action.12:25
sebas_crap12:25
sebas_thats the only thing keeping me from getting this phone12:25
inztis not a phone12:25
sebas_sorry12:25
sebas_i would use it as a phone anyways12:26
inzWell, technically it is a VoIP phone nowadays12:26
sebas_but i want to be able to develop software to it12:26
sebas_simple things12:26
sebas_and i dont wanna code c or c++12:26
sebas_that would be a waist of t ime12:26
sebas_...if you ask me12:26
sebas_are there anyother good handheld devices?12:27
sebas_with linux12:27
sebas_and java?12:27
sebas_that are as good as the 770? i cannot find anything like it12:27
sebas_only old crappy ones12:28
sebas_i should become a hardware manufacturer. i could please all of you *grandness*12:28
sebas_heey12:29
*** jonty has joined #maemo12:29
inzIf you don't wanna do C or C++, try python =)12:29
sebas_you can run c# on it12:29
sebas_i want to run something OO12:29
inzpython is OO12:29
sebas_and not c++12:29
sebas_yes12:29
sebas_but i dont code python12:29
sebas_hmm12:29
inzMe neither =)12:29
sebas_that would be a good challange though12:30
sebas_:P12:30
sebas_but it runs mono12:30
inzyeah12:30
sebas_so thats atleast something12:30
sebas_i could code mono12:30
sebas_thats java in a way12:30
sebas_not really12:30
sebas_but i could pretend12:30
inzC# = Java run through a simple sed script ;)12:30

sebas_i will not do python12:37
sebas_not for a phone12:37
sebas_hehe12:37
sebas_it does not look like fun12:37
bilboedsebas_, means you've never used python12:38
sebas_yes12:38
sebas_10:29 < sebas_> but i dont code python12:38
sebas_i was scrolling though some tutorials12:38
bilboedsebas_, the only downside to python on small devices is the startup time... but there's work being done currently to speed that up12:39
sebas_hmm12:39
sebas_but i mean python does not seem to be antying like java, c# etc12:39
sebas_very diffrent syntax12:39
sebas_very diffrent everything12:39
sebas_i would be able to learn it12:40
sebas_but i need to be motivated due to my autism.12:40
sebas_and i dont think i would buy a phone to learn to code.12:40
sebas_python12:40
sebas_i rememeber once i bought a 286 to learn to code c++12:40
sebas_those where the days12:40
dwdsebas_: I have a fairly large Python project running at reasonable speed on a 770.12:41
sebas_hmm12:42
sebas_well12:42
sebas_still12:42
sebas_they should not exclude java12:42
sebas_thats just bizzare12:42
sebas_i mean even if it was slow12:42
sebas_770 would get a lot of apps that would work12:42
*** tenshiKur0 has quit IRC12:43
suihkulokkinobody excluding java..12:43
suihkulokkijust nobody bothered enough to do it themself12:43
dwdsebas_: I think it's more that Java is excluding the 770, not the other way around.12:43
sebas_suihkulokki: haha12:43
sebas_dwd: yes12:43
sebas_true12:43
sebas_dwd: lets say 770 and java should be better friends.12:44
sebas_good diplomatic awnser.12:44
JaffaSomeone needs to just *try* porting phoneme - that'll start a Java ball rolling12:44
sebas_phoneme?12:44
JaffaThe new open source version of a Java ME (aka J2ME) stack12:45
sebas_looks intetestibng12:45
sebas_http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoneme12:45
sebas_heh12:45
sebas_its not that is it?12:45
suihkulokkisomeone got quite far porting java to the device, but got stuck doe to a xserver bug12:45
JaffaNo12:45
sebas_hehe ok12:45
suihkulokkiwhich has since been fixed12:45
Jaffasebas_: http://phoneme.dev.java.net/12:45
Jaffasuihkulokki: that was JamVM, wasn't it?12:45
suihkulokkiso someone who *cares* about java just needs to pick up the pieces and continue12:46
sebas_suihkulokki: are you looking at me?12:46
sebas_^^12:46
suihkulokki:P12:46
sebas_hmm12:46
sebas_i dont "care" persay about java12:46
sebas_i could do it with mono12:46
*** mgedmin has joined #maemo12:47
sebas_its not like i am planning to code apps to the 77012:47
JaffaMono's not much further than Java on the 770, TBH.12:47
sebas_i was just thinking if i have a 770 i would one day want to make stuff for it12:47
sebas_i made a schedualar for my last PDA12:47
sebas_cos i keep forgetting stuff12:48
sebas_*signs*12:48
JaffaGPE Calendar, GPE Todo?12:48
sebas_i want to make my own12:49
dwdsebas_: Python's a handy language to learn. Runs nicely on the 770, runs nicely on the desktop, runs nicely for webapps.12:49
JaffaAh.12:49
sebas_with my stuff12:49
sebas_dwd: you mean i should learn a new language just for this?12:49
sebas_heh, i like your way of thinking12:49
sebas_a bit annoying and it gives me OCDs but still... it would be a good reason to learn pything12:50
sebas_python12:50
dwdsebas_: No, I mean you would benefit from learning the language anyway.12:50
sebas_excatly12:50
sebas_hehe12:50
sebas_good point.12:50
dwdsebas_: If it were just for this, I'd agree that'd be a quirky way of thinking.12:50
sebas_ok then12:50
sebas_well, i always think quite quirky in the eyes of others12:51
sebas_that is why they put this stamp on me "high functioning autistic."12:51
sebas_it really only means my brain works in a diffrent manner.12:51
sebas_ok12:51
sebas_i will do some reading then i guess.12:51
sebas_see if it is fun or not12:51
dwdsebas_: FWIW, Python isn't interpreted anymore than Java is. Python can compile itself, but it also stores the results, and typically the device itself wouldn't do compilation.12:51
sebas_dwd: thnx12:51
suihkulokkiappears someone already did pick up java: http://www.internettablettalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=289612:52
sebas_what about databases12:52
sebas_or where should information be stored on the 770?12:52
sebas_just in a file?12:52
JaffaLot of people are using SQLite12:52
sebas_there is a SQLite server for 770? hah12:52
sebas_nice 112:53
inzSQLite doesn't have server12:53
florian_kcinz: s/have/need ;)12:53
inzflorian, s/have/use/ could be better12:53
inzbut anyway12:54
florian_kc:-)12:54
sebas_inz: hmm, i have never used it, i assumed it was like sql or mysql12:54
sebas_but lighter12:54
sebas_:P12:54
inzsebas, it's a bit like them, but all "server operations" are run in the client12:54
sebas_yeah12:54
sebas_i am reading about it now12:54
florian_kcsebas_: its similar, yes... and for sure you can use it to store data :-)12:54
sebas_so _thats_ why its light12:54
sebas_heh12:55
inzsebas, the other way(tm) of storing (simple) data is gconf12:55
inzsebas, and gconf is backed up by default, so you need not worry about telling backup sw about what files to backup12:55
sebas_the log of the java discussion will prolly have a bigger file size then the actuall code i will write all together12:56
inz=)12:56
sebas_^^12:56
sebas_so i should go out and get a 770 then.12:57
sebas_and learn python.12:57
sebas_i will go through som tutorials today12:57
inzhave phun12:57
sebas_see how i have missunderstood everything.12:57

* Jaffa wonders how easy it'll be to get Classpath's GtkWindows to be HildonWindows.13:29
JaffaFor that matter, given the Gtk fork for the 770, why hasn't the behaviour of GtkWindow changed, making porting trivial? (probably one for tko, probably one I've asked before)13:30
*** benzea has quit IRC13:31
florian_kcJaffa: That's one of the major ideas of object oriented software development: inherit instead of change things. For the HildonWindow this solution is absolutely correct.13:34
*** jserv2 has joined #maemo13:35
Jaffaflorian_kc: except it's also one of the fundamental flaws. No-one should be using GtkWindow on Maemo (unless I've missed something), and there's no factory to give you a window (which would abstract the production of the appropriate *Window and therefore make it correct). So porting *anything* requires code changes. Given code changes have already been made, to change the behaviour of input boxes and checkboxes etc. it'd've made sense to replace GtkWindow wi13:36
Jaffa(and whilst at it, changing adding GtkMenuBars to transparently implement the dropdowns)13:36
florian_kcJaffa: that would be much more complicated to maintain and is likely to cause trouble in future. adding bindings for new widgets should be easy...13:37
* Jaffa shrugs - I'd prefer the balance of maintenance to be on Maemo's side, rather than mine.13:43

JaffaI keep meaning to remove work stuff from it, scale it down a bit, and put it somewhere...15:25
_follower_Jaffa: Yes please! :-)15:25
_follower_wot hardware are you running the vmware player on?15:26
JaffaA very nice new laptop from work: Dell D620: dual-core, 2GHz, 2GB of RAM15:26
_follower_how much hard drive space does ubuntu + sbox need?15:27
JaffaHmm, the disk image is currently about 8.5GB - but it's a full Ubuntu system.15:28
JaffaMay well make it unfeasible to share15:28
_follower_is it practical to have a gui-less install if i'm just wanting to compile?15:28
*** _matthias_ has quit IRC15:29
JaffaGUI isn't too hard if you get the Browser Appliance for free from VMware and then run the Maemo installer shell script15:29
_follower_my issue is performance15:29
JaffaYeah15:29
_follower_i'd be running it in QEmu on 1.67GHz PPC mac with minimal hdd space :-)15:30
JaffaShould be feasible. There are bound to be basic Ubuntu VMware images out there which only provide text-mode.15:30
JaffaAh :)15:30
JaffaCan QEmu handle VMware images?15:30
_follower_not sure. i've managed to boot two Ubuntu Live CDs, one was practical one not so much--about 1 hour to boot :-)15:30
_follower_actually, for that matter does anyone know if ubuntu live CDs allow text-only installs (for the actual installation process)? i assume so...15:34
JaffaThey do.15:34
_follower_i should try that... is it possible to install only the compilation side of sbox?15:35
JaffaDon't think so, but the GUI bits won't take up much space (since you need the libraries and headers etc. to compile against)15:36
_follower_hmmmm.... maybe i'll have to continue my search for some more hdd space... :-/15:37
_follower_Jaffa: thanks for the feedback15:37

jurop88hi all16:41
jurop88I am upgrading my 770 now and just get caught by the '770 flasher missing page' bug16:41
jurop88fortunately I found a previous saved copy of it in my HDD :)16:41
jurop88anybody has some good tricks to update without reinstalling every app?16:42
X-Fadejurop88: https://maemo.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=858 Please complain there :)16:42
jurop88I found some threads on the subject but nothing really useful16:42
jurop88@x-fade: I'll do it, also if I don't need it thx to my habit to have lots of backups16:42
sylwarekoen: this flasher attack seems malicious16:44
jurop88I read something about python and PIM progs16:45
jurop88all that I can say is that I am regularly using winzig16:45
jurop88IMHO it's the best working pim app on N77016:45
jurop88really FAST, if you leave it ever open it works with palm speed16:46
jurop88@x-fade:ok, complained for it :)16:48
ajturneris there  PIM app that supports CalDAV?16:48
koengpe-calendar16:49
ajturnerhow good is sync now with it?16:55
sylwarekoen: what are the differences between calDAV and iCal?16:55
koenical is just a .ics file afaik16:55
koencaldav is an .ics file on a webdav share16:55
koenagain, afaik16:55
sylwareajturner: I think you have a sync framework, opensync with the multisync ui.16:55
sylwarekoen: ok16:56
ajturnerreally, I want my mobile, laptop & n770 to all have the same sync'd data16:56
koenI never tried pushing to a webdav share, since my 770 is for 'read only' PIM16:56
sylwarekoen: the good idea would 3 ways sync: google PIM/Workstation PIM/Mobile device  PIM16:57
jurop88i am using winzig both on the 770 and PC16:57
dwdkoen: CalDAV is rather more than just an iCal file on WebDAV - the WebDAV server provides lots of searching stuff etc.16:57
jurop88and using unison both on the pc and 770 on a daily basis works like a charm16:57
dwdkoen: Basically it's a full calendaring protocol, that happens to use WebDAV as the core syntax.16:57
ajturnerjurop88, I run mac, and use iCal. Winzig says "reported to run on mac, but no details"16:58
jurop88I think Winzig will works everywhere Python runs16:59
jurop88uh-oh17:00
jurop88perhaps not17:00
jurop88it uses pygtk bindings17:00
ajturnerbah!17:01

jjazzajturner: Let me put it this way.  With closed source, only Nokia can improve it.  If they open the source, Nokia and thousands of others can improve it.  Odds are that Lithuanian input would exist if the input code was open.21:30

ajturnerso core stable functionality is there, and very easy for any/all users to extend - like new input methods21:33

mgedminalso, I would like to have a custom virtual keyboard map with these letters on the first screen, and not hidden in a tab21:34

mgedminif it is a simple command-line app that is already packaged for Debian/Ubuntu, I can try to build an armel package for it21:50
|tbb|it does change ur macadress21:51
|tbb|its a commandline app21:51

* mgedmin found /usr/share/libimlayouts/fileformat.html in his scratchbox21:52
timelessyeah, that's what i'm reading21:52
* timeless stops reading it21:53
mgedmindoes the handwriting engine pick up a set of acceptable characters from a .vkb file?21:53
timelessum21:53
mgedminor are these just for the virtual on-screen keyboard?21:53
|tbb|mgedmin: http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/macchanger/?M=A21:53
timelessnot sure how to figure that out offhand, gimme a bit21:53
* timeless goes to figure out what simpliwrite is21:54
timelessit has help!21:55
timelessok, simpliwrite looks like it's harder21:56
mgedmin|tbb|: http://mg.pov.lt/770/dists/mistral/experimental/binary-armel/macchanger_1.5.0-1_armel.deb21:57
timelesslithuanian you said?21:57
mgedminI've just built it, I haven't tested it21:57
mgedmintimeless: yes21:57
timelessnot sure how this works, but it might work21:57
timelessi certainly don't see any list saying "this will not work with lithuanian" :)21:58
mgedminheh21:58
mgedminthank you for all the help21:58
mgedminum, I'd appreciate a pointer to some sample xml files for gen-vkb21:59
roopehandwriting has separate files than vkb.21:59
*** manaPirat has quit IRC22:01
timelessi can't figure out if the blob is something that is custom tailored to some list of supported inputs22:01
timelessit's quite possible it is22:01
timelessif it is, you'd probably need to figure out who or what simpliwrite is and buy a new blob :)22:01
timelesswww.nuance.com/handwriting/simpliwrite/22:02
timelessdoes 'a result in a single character when you try it?22:09
roopebtw, for some accented characters, for instance ä, it uses the base pattern for a and then just puts ¨ there. So you can't train ä, but you can train a.22:10
roopee gives é, è, ë etc.22:10
mgedmin'a results in either a or 'a, depending on the distance between ' and a22:11
* timeless grumbles at having to specify the language for input22:11
timelessactually, the recognition is fairly good imo22:11
roopeIt tries to optimize recognition by decreasing thje amount of possible candidates.22:11
roopeSo that if you're writing finnish it doesn't even try to match against some weird patterns.22:12
mgedminwhich is a good idea22:12
roopeFor 2006 there's the ... hwr training, if you remove a large amount of unsuitable patterns, the end result is quite good actually.22:12
timelessok, let's see what we have22:13
timelessok, looks like the rest of this stuff isn't gpl :(22:13
roopeYeah, it's the engine as shown in the link, which is a commercial product.22:13
timelessactually22:13
timelessyou're in luck, i think22:13
timelesslemme see if i can verify22:14
mgedminit wouldn't be too bad if the language definition files were open22:14
timelesshrm, you're mostly in luck22:14
timelessi just don't know what vcs this stuff comes from22:14
timelessroope: is it safe to say that none of these files have changed since 2005?22:15
timelessmgedmin: it wouldn't help22:15
timelessthe app hard codes mappings22:15
timelessyou're either lucky or unlucky22:15
timelessin this case, i believe you're lucky22:15
* mgedmin wonders what that means22:15
roopethe language files, yes I guess.22:16
timelesseither the app hard codes your language, or it doesn't22:16
timelesswell, no, the mappings22:16
roopeHWR patterns?22:16
timelessif the language file doesn't exist, it could be added22:16
timelessif the mapping from language name to file isn't in a configurable place22:16
timelessthen you need to reinvent a binary application22:16
timelesswhich is much harder than a data file22:16
|tbb|could it be that i cant reboot my device while chargin?22:19
timelessum, i do that all the time22:20
mgedmin|tbb|: you can kinda reboot it, but not completely22:20
mgedminmost of the processes remain running in the background22:20
mgedminif you want a full reboot, you have to unplug it22:20
|tbb|i cant start the application manager any more22:21
timelesshrm22:21
timelessdoes gconf have human readable descriptions for its prefs?22:21
mgedmingconf schemas usually have them22:21
timelessbecause if it does, i bet you could figure out how to pick the language you want22:21
mgedminsomewhere deep in /var/lib/gconf22:21
timelessyeah, i'd suggest you grovel through the schemas then22:21
mgedmin/etc/gconf/schemas/hildon_inputmethod.schemas ?22:22
timelessroope: is it ok if i give a hint?22:22
timelesssounds likely22:22
* timeless tries to figure out how these things are sorted22:24
* mgedmin wishes he knew how to use gconftool22:24
* timeless doesn't :)22:24
mgedmindo you think I can add lt_LT to /apps/osso/inputmethod/available_languages and it will start working?22:27
mgedminor should I set the secondary_language?22:27
timelessi wouldn't try messing w/ primary if i risked not being able to use the machine again by doing so :)22:27
* mgedmin discovers gconftool-2 -a /apps/osso/inputmethod22:28
timelessok, at some point i suspect you're going to need a magic number22:30
timelessthe magic number for today is it_IT+722:31
mgedminonly I do not see a place to put it22:31
timelessyeah, well, some people have problems :)22:31
*** Pio has quit IRC22:31
timelesswhat keys were you considering?22:31
mgedminavailable_languages and secondary_language22:32
timelesskeep in mind, that i've never been foolish enough to delve into gconf22:32
timelesshrm22:32
* timeless wonders what available_languages looks like22:33
*** jait has joined #maemo22:34
roopeI was actually positively suprised by HWR when I tried it recently. It worked better than from the last time I remember using it.22:34
* timeless too22:35
timelessum, where's gconf?22:35
mgedminif you log into a 770 and type that gconftool-2 command I wrote earlier, you will see the current values of all settings22:35
mgedminthey are stored in xml files under /var/lib/gconf/, but I do not know if you can edit them there22:35
* mgedmin did gconftool-2 -s /apps/osso/inputmethod/available_languages -t list --list-type string '[pt_BR,en_GB,fr_CA,it_IT,de_DE,fr_FR,es_ES,sv_SE,pt_PT,es_MX,en_US,el_GR,ru_RU,nl_NL,fi_FI,da_DK,no_NO,lt_LT]'22:36
* mgedmin did gconftool-2 -s /apps/osso/inputmethod/secondary_language -t string 'lt_LT'22:36
timelesspersonally not that ou need to, i'd reboot my device :)22:36
mgedminI can now select lt_LT in the input method's Language menu, but none of the shapes I write are recognized22:36
timelessi'm certainly not going to stick a debugger up and follow the full code flow22:37
mgedminthere is certainly a mapping from locale names (en_GB) to something the handwriting engine uses22:37
mgedminsomewhere22:37
timelesscan you possibly dump a full gconf tree into a pastebin?22:39
timelessi'm using a 770, and trying to find what i'm looking for w/ it is a bad use of my time22:39
timelesspastebin.mozilla.org is reasonably responsive22:39
mgedminfull XML dump?22:40
mgedminof the /apps/osso subtree?22:41
|tbb|for what is this ? ->  gconftool22:41
timelessyes22:41
mgedminjust a sec... I'd like to strip my account passwords from it22:42
timeless:)22:44
timelessah22:44
* timeless finds the next roadblock22:44
timelessdid you create a vkb file?22:45
mgedminnot yet22:45
* timeless would suggest copying some random locale22:45
timelessgo for italian or russian22:45
timelesssomething you'll recognize22:46
mgedmingladly, if I could find an xml file to copy22:46
mgedminhmm ah, it would work with a binary one too22:46
timelessright, just steal an existing binary22:46
*** Pio has joined #maemo22:46
timelessyou need to get used to the way reverse engineering works22:46
timelessfeed things you have that work to things you think will use them22:46
timelessthen corrupt the data as needed22:46
timelessalthough my guess is that the open tool we mentioned earlier will solve half that problem22:47
timeless(kinda silly that the xml files aren't open though...)22:47
mgedminan interesting observation: if I select lt_LT as the language from the popup keyboard menu, then the Input method submenu shows both keyboard and handwriting options as disabled22:47
timelessit would22:47
mgedminperhaps I should compile a system loale?22:48
timelessit's not going to let you use them because it didn't find the vkb22:48
mgedminlocale22:48
mgedminI created a lt_LT.vkb -> ru_RU.vkb symlink22:48
mgedminmaybe I need to reboot again22:48
timelessok22:48
* timeless reads carefuly22:48
timelesssorry22:48
timelesshrm22:49
timelessactually, there are some regulations about reverse engineering22:49
timelessi hope you're not violating the terms of the license22:49
timelessyou did read the nokia license, right? :)22:49
mgedminuhh22:50
* timeless likes "You may not ... tranlsate ... the Software ... except as expressly provided in this Agreement."22:50
mgedminI think the laws here explicitly allow reverse engineering for interoperability purposes22:50
timelesswhat interop purpose do you have?22:51
mgedminmyself interoperating with the device?22:51
mgedmin:)22:51
timelessdoes that count?22:51
timeless(seriously)22:51
mgedminIANAL22:51
mgedmincan poking around in gconf be called reverse engineering?22:51
* timeless frowns22:51
timelessnah, but munging the vkb file probably would be22:52
timelessthankfully using the publicly available generator shouldn't be22:52
timelessand since you have the source for that, it's pretty safe to say that you're fine as long as you just use it22:52
mgedminmaybe I should just file a wishlist bug22:52
timelessmy guess is that you'll be stuck tryiing to generate an equivalent of the english keymap22:52
timelessyou should be able to do that and once you've done that you can generate a more useful map22:52
timelessthat /should/ be ok, but IANAL either22:53
timelessfeel free to wishlist, but unless you're offering $$$$$$ and users, i don't expect it to go somewhere22:53
timelesshrm, make that EUR not USD :)22:53
* timeless can't figure out this license at all22:54
timelessit seems to be talking about things that don't make sense22:54
timelessanyway, i think you should be able to figure out how to write an xml file22:55
mgedminactually, about that vkb generator: its documentation documents the binary file format, but not the input XML schema22:55
timelessthe source you have shouldn't be that bad22:56
timelessyeah, i saw that22:56
mgedminwhich is a bit strange22:56
timelessyeah, that was my thought at first22:56
timelessanyway, it looks simple enough22:57
mgedminnot without documentation/samples/sources22:58
mgedminlibimlayouts-generator is in the non-free section22:58
mgedminanyway, big thanks for the support22:58
mgedminit's time for me to go home22:59
timelessyeah, i'm still trying to figure out why it's in nonfree22:59
timelessoh, cute22:59
