[00:00:05] <SWPadnos> heh
[00:00:42] <cradek> I've got more happy feedback about that two-line fix than I did about all of cutter compensation or my entire new gui
[00:00:49] <cradek> * cradek shrugs
[00:01:28] <SWPadnos> I imagine there aren't a whole lot of people using touchscreens at the moment
[00:01:41] <cradek> yeah for good reason :-)
[00:01:43] <SWPadnos> and it's hard to evaluate a touchscreen GUI when all you have is a mouse and keyboard
[00:01:47] <SWPadnos> yeah :)
[00:01:51] <cradek> maybe over time people will find and use it.
[00:02:13] <SWPadnos> one day, I may try installing a newer version of Linux on my touchscreen PC
[00:02:14] <cradek> and this one really needs you to make a panel with certain controls on it.
[00:02:28] <SWPadnos> then again, I may try getting a newer motherboard that can drive it instead
[00:02:31] <SWPadnos> yeah
[00:02:38] <cradek> that thing ran AXIS so touchy should be easy on it
[00:02:42] <SWPadnos> do you think it could run OK in 800x600?
[00:02:47] <cradek> certainly
[00:02:52] <SWPadnos> ok, coo,l
[00:02:53] <cradek> it works great at any size
[00:03:07] <cradek> (a main design goal)
[00:03:22] <SWPadnos> well, it's the lack of more or less every feature found on modern PCs that could be the issue, with the exception of PCI slots)
[00:03:48] <cradek> heh, who cares?
[00:04:19] <SWPadnos> well, no flash drives (no working USB) and no CD-rom
[00:04:32] <SWPadnos> the network interface is probably 10/100, but I'm not sure
[00:05:09] <cradek> network, touchscreen, pci slot = emc machine
[00:05:24] <SWPadnos> yes, once it's calibrated
[00:05:41] <SWPadnos> it's meant to go into a cabinet, which makes the edges even worse
[00:05:47] <cradek> the remote desktop thingy built in to hardy is nice
[00:05:55] <SWPadnos> (ie, once there's a bezel, it will truly suck at the fringes
[00:06:25] <SWPadnos> I guess I should hook that thing up and get updates before I can't any more
[00:06:28] <cradek> bbl
[00:06:37] <SWPadnos> I think it's already too late to get X-related updates
[00:06:38] <SWPadnos> see you
[08:00:49] <SWPadnos_> SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
[08:03:32] <SWPadnos_> SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
[08:08:47] <SWPadnos_> SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
[19:43:28] <SWPadnos> micges, thanks
[19:43:38] <micges> np
[20:01:08] <micges> cradek: touchy hang up on ubuntu 9.04
[20:01:42] <cradek> more information
[20:02:14] <micges> today I've pulled
[20:03:13] <micges> running touchy config and it hangs on: Issuing EMC_TRAJ_SET_ROTATION -- (+226,+20, +0,0.000000,)
[20:03:40] <cradek> does the gui appear?
[20:04:06] <micges> and tochy got 60% of cpu and gui dosn't appeat
[20:04:07] <micges> r
[20:04:17] <cradek> strange!
[20:04:40] <micges> I've puller from weak ago and the same result
[20:04:46] <cradek> I think that's the OS I have, and it works OK
[20:04:49] <micges> week*
[20:05:02] <cradek> maybe attach with the debugger and see what it's doing
[20:05:03] <micges> sure I'll try dome debug
[20:05:11] <cradek> thanks
[20:24:14] <jepler> do you mean it used to work but doesn't now? in that case, it would be informative to know what commit broke it. 'git bisect' can help do that.
[20:38:06] <micges> I didn't learn bisect yet, but touchy hangs on if on line 64
[20:38:48] <micges> I mean it didn't reach my debug line after that if
[20:39:34] <jepler> this? 64 if gtk.gtk_version >= (2, 10, 0):
[20:40:01] <micges> yep
[20:42:09] <micges> http://www.pastebin.ca/1675323
[20:42:20] <jepler> http://lists-archives.org/gtk/09825-gtk-color-scheme-in-gtk_rc_parse_string-not-like-the-current-theme-leads-to-infinite-loops.html
[20:42:40] <micges> it never prints "TOUCHY 3"
[20:43:08] <micges> oh
[20:47:10] <micges> cool, at least it is known behavoiur
[20:47:21] <micges> :P
[20:49:42] <jepler> bug
[20:49:42] <jepler> bug14:07:05 <cradek> thanks
[20:49:44] <jepler> argh
[20:49:48] <jepler> https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=523328
[20:50:50] <jepler> to get touchy running, you could try deleting the gtk_color_scheme line, or changing the if gtk.gtk_version...: to if 0:
[20:51:23] <jepler> either of those should avoid the bug 523328 but possibly make touchy look less like intended
[20:53:32] <micges> it works thanks
[22:26:30] <micges> cradek: in touchy mdi commands are sended in inches even if gui is set for mm
[22:29:59] <cradek> GUI setting only changes the DRO
[22:30:03] <cradek> if you want mm, program G21
[22:30:13] <cradek> same for AXIS
[22:31:58] <micges> ah, yes.
[23:01:07] <micges> good night all
