zerojayIt's something most French people do.03:13
zerojayPutting a 20 before the 21s like that.03:13

zerojaypupnik: It's something you learn when you do a lot of text translations... and because our game would see the space, if it was at the end of the line, it would wrap so that the 21 was at the bottom of the next line all alone.03:16
zerojaySo I spent a good amount of time adding in A0's instead of 20's for those cases.03:17

czrA-port I think is the connector type15:18
czrso basically just a full size connector.15:18
GeneralAntillesActually, no.15:18
GeneralAntillesThat's not a full-size connector on there.15:19
GeneralAntillesScales are a bit off. :D15:19

GeneralAntillesIt does, but compare it to the one on the N80015:20

czryou're right15:20

cosmo469€ price for 810 in finland (was in
czrin a purely platonic manner of course15:25
lardman /usr/local/ is probably the place one should install things, but it's not in the path afaik15:25
*** fsmw has joined #maemo15:25
cosmobut where is the stylus?15:26
_Monkeyit has been said that the stylus is madness15:26
lardmanso use /usr/bin  etc15:26
czrlardman, /usr/local/ is for modifications done by the local administration which fall outside package management (in FHS)15:26
czrlardman, so in this case /usr/bin would be more correct imho (when speaking about packaged software)15:26
lardmanczr: is it? I thought it was for packages added ontop of the standard ones15:27
czrlardman, well, not sure whether maemo is FHS compliant or not15:27

GeneralAntillesNokia isn't going to flip a switch and turn it off.15:35
revthe n810 sure looks tasty!15:35
GeneralAntillesApp development has continued just fine for the 770, even with the N800 on the market.15:35
GeneralAntillesThey've already stated that the N800 is good for at least two more OS updates.15:35
pupnikU4so now ppl have the choice between an 800 w/o kbd and an 810 with kbd.  good news!15:36
GeneralAntillesHopefully we get the specs soon.15:36
revGeneralAntilles: has the api changed enough that that would matter? i always saw the 770 2005/OS2006/N800 binary thing as being a matter of abi or something15:36
solmumahaGeneralAntilles: they are bad, money wise ;)15:37
revwhich is to say, in the few external apps i've moved up for myself, i never had to do anything more than recompile, it seems, and notthing with my own app15:37
* GeneralAntilles is a poor nooblette with very little coding experience.15:37
revahh ok15:37
GeneralAntillesI just like to talk out my ass a lot. ;)15:37
revdon't we all?15:37
sciboyNooblette, gosh that's cute.15:37
pupnikU4rev you know that 2005-2006 switched from arm to armel, 2006 and 2007 are binary compatible tho15:38
* sciboy adds it to his vocabulary15:38
sciboyDoes any of the browsers, (opera, microb, minimo) have the option to call a url from the command-line and possibly jump directly to fullscreen mode?15:39
revpupnikU4: but are there any other substantial differences? dev-wise? other than not using the camera, say.15:40
revsciboy: i think there's a way to do it via dbus, but i can't recall15:40
revsciboy: not sure about the full-screen part, though15:40
sciboyrev, Well thing is I'm making a game for the n800 using javascript etc. all the toolbar options etc. are completely unnecessary and want to design for that extra screen real estate.15:41
revi need to upgrade/flash my N800. i tried installing microb a while back, hosed the browser, and for the last 6 weeks or so haven't been using it nearly as much, because of the non-functioning web browser. uff.15:42
pupnikU4yes some things have been changed between 2006 and 2007 but for the most part, 2006 apps seem to run on 200715:42
sciboyI still have to wait for my n800 to arrive, or even news of when it may arrive. =/15:42
revsciboy: yeah, fair enough. have you tried making a popup to ditch most of that stuff?15:43
revsciboy: or, you could just write a shell containing the HTML widget from opera, microb, etc, that'd probably be easier15:43
sciboyrev, I recall some javascript to push for fullscreen in IE, not sure about Mozilla or Opera.15:43
TPCsciboy, can't you just make a simple gecko frontend that behaves like you want it?15:43

revsciboy: i think that, time total spent, you could make something happen with a simpler browser shell faster than trying to go down the path you are15:47
revwow, that was poorly woorded, eh?15:48
revsciboy: that is, doing it the way TPC and I are talking about could be done even by someone without much coding experience, with a few pointers from folks like us in the channel, or perhaps an actual dev helper15:48

blkhawk[work]well it probably will only power a usb flash stick but its cool nonntheless15:50
sciboyrev, I guess so, first though I need to know what resolution I'll be working with, all the content has to be actual-size in order to help performance, so what part of 800x480 is actually usable by the application?15:50
GeneralAntillesI don't think that's a USB A port.15:50
GeneralAntillesThe scale is wrong15:50
revi don't think that's a USB port, not one capable of histing15:51
GeneralAntillesCompare it to the port on the N800.15:51
revi think it's the same little guy on the N80015:51
GeneralAntillesI thought it was A when I first looked at it, too.15:51
revsciboy: well, if you actually had it full screen it'd be a full 800x48015:51
revsciboy: though you might want to have some sort of toolbar, giving you the ability to quit15:51
pupnikU4engadget must be lurking here15:51
sciboyrev, Can the user still switch between apps if one is fullscreen?15:52
revsciboy: yeah, but not as easily (e.g. there's no bar w/ icons)15:52
TPC[14:50:32] <blkhawk[work]> well it probably will only power a usb flash stick but its cool nonntheless15:52
GeneralAntillesIf anybody missed it.15:52
TPCwould be cool if it could power a usb 3G modem15:52
GeneralAntillesIt's not an A port15:53
GeneralAntillesSo I don't think it's going to be powering much of anything.15:53
sciboyrev, If I can use the whole screen that'd be pretty desirable since that means I have more control over the experience. But users must have the freedom to pause, quit and switch applications.15:53
TPCthey can just push the fullscreen button and get out of fullscreen mode15:54
pupnikU4'All your sdl keyboard problems magically wiped away... along with most of your personality.'15:54

pupnikU4so the packed yuv format means less bandwidth needed for screen updates? (assuming the stuff to be drawn is in that fmt)?17:04

mgedminthe muchness depends on whether you want a hardware kb20:39

GeneralAntillesGPS is just gonna be a battery waste20:40

mgedminlugging around an external gps is not convenient20:40

shaprYeah, I really want fewer things to lug around.20:40

mgedmin(whether the convenience is worth an extra $480 is a good question)20:40

GeneralAntillesGet the N80020:41
shaprYeah, I want to know that!20:41
mgedmingiven that it also says "Supports cards up to 8GB. "20:41

shaprWhere does it mention the card slots for the N810?20:41

mgedminzeenix: it was, for a while22:35
wumpusbecause most of us probably already have a n80022:35
mgedminsnowmoon: you can't please everyone, either people will complain about update wimpyness, or other people will complain that their brand new n800 became obsolete overnight22:35
mgedmin(or both)22:35
wumpusI'll probably skip this one, maybe go for the n900 when it's there :)22:36
alteregoTak, not yet. There will be soon :)22:36
HGFBI'm not sure how they can complain. Apart from the keyboard and gps the N800 is more capable :)22:36
wumpusunless they finally activated powervr and it has great 3d support, then I might consider buying one, but I doubht  it22:36
* Tak nods22:36
snowmoonI'm just hoping that the 810 will drive down the prices on the 800 so that I can justify it as a toy22:36
HGFBEspecially since OS2008 is going to be released very soon22:36

MDKthere are very complex issues involved, if it was simple, we would have done it22:38

MDKdon't ask me, I can't talk (I wish I could)22:38
wumpuswell, if it was technical I'd gladly help :p22:38
lardmanMDK interesting none the less, thanks for the hints22:39
guerbyI don't see why Nokia would not release new hardware for N800 as fast as they release phones: everyone knows product are replaced every 6 monthes by something better22:39
alteregoonion, depends what you mean. The platform is so open I'm sure developers could, on their own, compile root filesystem images from the latest releases. Though I imagine that OS2008 which uses main stream Gtk etc will be very slow on a 77022:39
guerbybuying one of these gadget and complaining that something better is out after a few monthes is not logical22:39
lardmanis H.264 supported on the n800?22:39
MDKalterego: the "mainstream gtk" is not slower in OS200822:40
wumpusguerby: because a stable platform is good for software development, especially if you rely on open source22:40
alteregolardman, will be with OS2008 I believe, not sure if it is now. Should say in the spec docs.22:40
MDK(than it was in OS2007)22:40
alteregoMDK, it will be on the 77022:40
onionalterego: developing... I can't afford to get every model that comes out22:40
lardmanalterego: I was just thinking that the IVA is supposed to decode that22:40
alteregoThe issue here is not with the N800 it's continued OS images for the 770.22:40
guerbywumpus, software has to adapt to platform change continuously (especially in the UI world)22:41
wumpuspeople writing OS won't buy a new device every few months, so might get tired of it.. of course, they can release incrementally better devices (like the N810 seems to be)22:41
alteregoThe N800 will be supported until OS2009 I believe.22:41
wumpusbut breaking compatibility again this soon would be a bad idea22:41
wumpusalterego: great22:41
MDKguys, remember there is a developer program (or is going to be soon)22:41
alteregoMDK, you really think they'll have on for the N810? I'm personally not so sure about that .. ;)22:42
MDKso you can get discounted device if you have a nice maemo development history22:42
guerbywumpus, it looks like N810 will not break compat, but I've no problem if they do break22:42

alteregoI wonder if ruby-maemo will give me enough credits to be accepted into the program ^_^22:43
MDKalterego: ah, you're the guy doing the ruby stuff?22:43

wumpusand phones have JME applets anyway which have been working for a long time22:43
alteregoMDK, indeed :)22:43

alteregoWhy do you think it's obsolete?22:45
czryou can always make a small gtk-program to turn the 770 into a wireless picture frame ;-)22:45
alteregoThe 770 still has oodles of potential :)22:45
wumpussuihkulokki: yes, there will be less reason why an OS might not work on the n880, unless maemo pulls a vista/aero kind of thing, but that'd drain battery like hell22:45
MDKtimeless: gtk hasn't broken API compatibility since years22:46
suihkulokki..ofcourse, the chinook gtk is still patched and has dozens of unstable #MAEMO_CHANGES things22:46

mgedminone month battery life without recharging...23:33
VReBut I think the design-guru & hw-team has already cooked up the next device..23:33
mgedminbuilt-in coffee machine...23:33
VRemgedmin: sounds like emacs23:33
timelessin practice it seems the hardware designers design 2-5 devices in the future, refusing to ever talk to anyone to get feedback23:33
mgedminI wouldn't know, I use vim :-)23:33
Larisoso with a menu shell script: i write a shell script, that runs fine from command line with "sh /root/"23:33
Larisowhat do i put as command in .desktop file to run this?23:34
VRetimeless: I have noticed that before too.. that ought to be changed23:34
timelessthere are lots of things that should be changed23:34
timelessvre: i think you'll find just about everything i'm describing is much less than ideal23:35
VRewe'll that is just a sign that there is more paychecks coming down in the future.. =)23:35

Larisoi just noticed the top of my script.. #!/bin/bash23:36
timelessoh, that'll work well on our devices :)23:36
pauliukasAlright guys.23:36
VRetimeless: I think the software will start to rock sooner than later - now the same teachings should be applied to other areas aswell23:36
pauliukasHow can I install OS 2007/8/whatever hacker/cracker edition?23:37
timelessthe sofware processes still need a lot of work, but yes, we'd love to see useful innovation wrt hardware design23:37
mgedmingoogle results for os2007he don't seem to point to the official page23:38

VReI was thinking that the 3rd device could be worth actually buying when I saw 770 - got that more or less right. 3rd gen is usually where the device starts to be stable enough for massmarket23:38
* mgedmin is waiting for a science-fictiony hard resizable screens23:38
Takanybody using xchat plugins on the device?23:39
*** dolske has joined #maemo23:39
Larisook even with #!/bin/bash fixed the ui does nothing when i click23:39
Larisoi assume i'm able to just run a shell script as a command just like a compiled app would23:40
VRebtw, is the date/time dialog/elements as hard to use still with the new maemo as with old (just check gpe..)23:40
czrLariso, you launching it with just the script name or with multiple parts with spaces in between?23:40
Larisojust the script name23:40
czrat least back in 770 days, the desktop file didn't support spaces23:40
czrno sh in front of it?23:40
Takah, plugin support is disabled :-(23:40
mgedminLariso: is the .sh file executable?23:40
Larisoand yeah, 755 i think23:41
czrhmm. add some echos into some file in /tmp/ to see whether the script is run at all23:41
VReczr: and everything had to be installed under some obscure subdirectory..23:41
czrVRe, /var/install infact. was trying to find out the proper new directory to install just today ;-)23:42
czrkind of funny how none of the docs actually mentions anything about the proper directiories to install into now.23:42
VReczr: you have been away long..23:42
czrVRe, yes. I tried to get out, and each time they keep on pulling me back in.23:43
VReczr: it's debian defaults.. ./configure --prefix=/usr23:43
czrVRe, well. I know now.23:43
*** pdz- has joined #maemo23:43
Larisodoes a service need to be restarted whenever i change a desktop file or will it take effect immediately23:44
t_s_ohmm, maybe i should just regard my wsod 770 as a expensive paper weight and look for a price drop on the N800 now that the N810 is out?23:44
VReThe new menu seems to be quite big by looking the pics, I hope it'll handle nice those 40 programs I have installed so I don't need to scroll around23:44
czrbtw, any nokians want to hint what should I call the application installer component in bora? Application Installer, Application Manager, or Application manager? the docs are contradictory23:44
mgedminthe n810 won't be sold before november, but otoh there already was a n800 price drop23:44
timelessApplication manager23:44
_Monkeywell, Application manager is maemo's GUI over apt23:44
timelessbut what do you mean call?23:45
czrrefer to. in text.23:45
timelessexactly as i wrote23:45
timelessnote the lowercase m23:45
*** mgedmin has quit IRC23:45
czrI did note :-)23:45
t_s_owell i have yet to see the local web shops that carry the N800 display any kind of price drop...23:45
timelessand i blame roope and the rest of Nokia style for the insane spelling/case23:45
* timeless washes hands23:45
czrtimeless, there are still some docs which use Application Installer too.23:45
czr3.2 ones.23:45
timelessczr: file bugs23:46
timelessi mean, there's no harm23:46
* timeless filed that one23:46
czrI'm collecting a list of stuff in the various docs and will submit that.. via.. other channels. detest using bugzilla for each small bug23:46
timelesssure it's a dupe, not my fault, that's life23:46
czrnice number :-)23:47
timelessthanks :)23:47
Larisoooh it is running the script23:47
timelessi was supposed to be 399998, i messed up the math and the bug i wanted was 400002 :(23:47
Lariso"/tmp/foobar" exists23:47
pauliukas"The same way it works in 2007, it integrates with the system /usr/bin/browser, you can still switch back to Opera (8.0 in the case of 2006, instead of 8.5 on 2007) at any time." How?23:47
czrtimeless, 400k is so much more.. convenient to remember :-)23:48
timelesspauliukas: when it works, there's a set engine menu23:48
timelesswhen it doesn't work, you can edit ~/.browser and fix hidden=123:48
timelessand then run the browser to see the menu23:48
pauliukasSee, that's the problem it doesn't23:48
timeless(won't do anything useful if you use os2008)23:48
pauliukasAnd I uninstalled it.23:48
