if the 'emc' script exits with an error, it will pop this up and show everything to the user
I guess I'll take a chance and check this stuff in
I'd support that.
Long ago we had a similar report run from tickle. Your setup here is much more detailed.
I don't think I knew about that.
That was way back.
jepler, Do you have image magic on your default ubuntu install?
a command "convert -v" should give a pile of reply.
well one of my machines has it and another doesn't, so it must not be installed by default
I don't think it's installed by default
why do you ask? Did I write something that requires it?
we can add it to the requirements for the emc2 package if necessary
Okay. I instalaled it for my LyX program but was going to suggest another ubuntu user compress images with it.
by the way, if you're running emc from the shell, you can trigger the new graphical error window by adding "< /dev/null" to the commandline
when stdin is a terminal, it just prints a note about the failure and tells you where the files are; if not, it assumes it's running from an icon and pops up the little wish app
someone with systems other than ubuntu should add regular expressions to recoginze the first kernel message logged by emc when it starts; I hardcoded a string that the adeos.ko module prints when loaded.
