I'm feeling lazy .. but here's the log anyways: http://188.8.131.52/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emcdevel/2006-10-12#T02-46-53
SWPadnos: even though I think alex put motion-sync IO back in, I don't see the code
I don't know where it is either, but I remember the conversations
only in HEAD, I'm sure
incidentally, lxr won't do a freetext search on HEAD, says it's not indexed
I actually thought he put it in before 2.0, but it's long ago and I don't trust my memory
I think there was something more recent than 2.0
ie, it may have ben there, but now it works
yeah I couldn't figure it out, it isn't generating the swish indexes correctly
I'll poke at it some more, maybe today
the docs/install instructions for lxr are not great
heh - "by programmers for programmers" ;)
and I think the move to swish was pretty recent (more recent than the instructions)
yeah no kidding
argh, the tkemc optional stop button turns green, blue, or white depending on how many times I click it and where the mouse is
that's interesting but I wonder which color means "on"
does it change color when you mouse over it?
yes it turns white or green
when the mouse isn't over it, it's blue or green
white when the mouse is over it
well if it's green, it doesn't turn white anymore
I suspect that green means don't stop, blue means do stop, and white means that the mouse is over it ;)
it stays green but the label turns blue instead
does it look at all gnme-ish?
I don't know what that means...?
I've noticed an unrelated issue with gnome on ubuntu - buttons that appear under the mouse don't work until you move the mouse pointer
SWPadnos: I saw that also.
oh - on the default dapper/breezy install, buttons kind of "hilight" when the mouse is over them - does that happen with buttons in tkems?
yes they change from blue to white
but only if they're not green :-)
ok, so the mouseover makes the non-obvious operation of the button even more unintelligible
because you have to mouse away from it to see its state, which is only represented by the color it turns when you move away
I don't understand why one wouldn't use a checkbutton for this.
because one has no checkbuttons?
there are other checkbuttons on the window.
are there? - I hadn't noticed
there are radio buttons
but believe me, tk does have a checkbutton widget
which should be similar, but ...
sure- I suspect that they just aren't used due to programmer style
the other thing that should be a checkbutton (override limits) is another button that has three colors, but they are blue/red/white
why must the cat sit on my lap every time I'm in a chair?
our cats find where ever we where sitting. stand up for 30 seconds and a cat is curled up in your place.
heh - and this is a Texas kitty living in Vermont (in the fall :) )
cradek: those *are* checkbuttons, but with "-indicatoron 0"
well, I may be wrong
but that's nearly the behavior you get with "-indicatoron 0"
I wish I hadn't said anything because I don't want to fix it, and I don't want to not fix it
line 2320 and thereabouts is where the optional stop button is colored
green if on, "normal" if off
* cradek hdies
(normal being one color when active and another color when inactive)
what do you want it to look like? I can probably do some change and paste it here (still without an emc2 dev machine)
you can run sim on any linux now
well, that I can't do :)
I have no Linux machines other than my laptop at the moment :(
and no space to put that in my office, unfortunately. I really need to clean
now I'm getting depressed
I just cleaned my desk off/out at home, it was quite an experience
(got a new desk)
I'm not sure there's a garbage truck big enough for this job ;)
still trying to sort out the issues with (a) the big old file server machine and (b) the power supply issues with my dual opteron
hardware problems suck
at least I managed to fix the openGL/ATI driver issue on my wife's machine today - now she can run OpenOffice again
openoffice uses gl?
strange that OO needs openGL
dunno what for
this power issue is really weird. if I use my nice PC Power&Cooling supply, I can't boot with the PCIe firewire card installed
it works fine with the SuperMicro power supply (which has a couple of other issues that make me not want to use it)
wow that does sound strange
yeah. I just got the motherboard RMA'ed, and the new one has the same problem
and I've tried the next larger PCP&C power supply as well
