[06:06:54] <CIA-48> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/configs/common/configurable_options/pyvcp/m5i20panel.xml: fix typo
[06:17:41] <CIA-48> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/pncconf/pncconf.py:
[06:17:41] <CIA-48> EMC: fix test panel so it works again. Should also work for 5i22 and 5i43 for GPIO
[06:17:41] <CIA-48> EMC: and some other component combos. I don't have the hardware to check them.
[06:17:41] <CIA-48> EMC: still need to fix the conversion from one firmware to another sometimes you
[06:17:41] <CIA-48> EMC: have to click it twice to get it to fully convert.
[18:04:26] <skunkworks> ken ken ken...
[18:16:49] <cradek> argh
[18:17:22] <cradek> we're still working on the rationale/announcement/request for input regarding the proposed switch to git
[18:26:35] <skunkworks> I figured
[18:29:50] <micges> cradek: have few minutes ?
[18:32:39] <micges> yesterday discuss about 2009-05-29 12:01:58
[18:33:37] <micges> there is question for you
[18:48:51] <micges> cradek: question is: is there any way to change velocity of moves that are in motion queue?
[18:50:12] <jmkasunich> feed override
[18:52:01] <micges> jmkasunich: in real time based on value of float hal pin
[18:52:11] <jmkasunich> adaptive feed
[18:52:21] <micges> (see yesteday discuss)
[18:53:08] <micges> I've tried AF, every move has different velocity :|
[19:13:50] <alex_joni> what micges means is that the calculation for using AF are complex/not possible
[20:53:26] <cradek> my answers are the same as jmkasunich_'s, those are the only existing ways I know to change the feed of queued motions
[20:54:22] <cradek> bbl
[20:55:20] <alex_joni> well, since it's the devel channel you might also consider non-existing ways ;)
[21:16:46] <micges> good night all
[21:22:55] <skunkworks> Nice email on git.
[21:23:30] <skunkworks> logger_dev: bookmark
[21:23:30] <skunkworks> Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emcdevel/2009-05-30.txt
[21:35:44] <jepler> skunkworks: let me know if you have any trouble with those commandlines
[21:35:57] <jepler> I triple-checked them, but it's still possible one is wrong
[21:36:26] <jepler> and you'll want to get to know git anyway
[21:38:26] <skunkworks> Ok. question.. - do spaces still cause a problem with stepconfig for the machine name?
[21:39:02] <skunkworks> like 'big mill' vs big_mill
[21:39:36] <jepler> I don't know offhand
[21:39:52] <jepler> I know it was never fixed in 2.2, but I dunno whether I found and fixed all the problems in 2.3.
[21:40:55] <skunkworks> would this be the error? http://cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=81821
[21:41:05] <skunkworks> (Can you see attachments in cnczone?)
[21:41:45] <jepler> doesn't ring a bell
[21:41:58] <jepler> stepconf doesn't let you enter spaces anyway
[21:41:58] <skunkworks> ok
[21:42:02] <skunkworks> oh
[21:42:04] <skunkworks> heh
[21:44:05] <jepler> I wonder if his Desktop directory is called something besides "Desktop"
[21:44:56] <jepler> I wonder how to determine the path of the desktop directory..
[21:51:13] <alex_joni> skunkworks: that would be my guess too
[21:52:19] <alex_joni> since he's writing in norwegian, he might have it localized
[21:53:09] <alex_joni> although the screenshot from the previous post doesn't suggest that
[21:55:11] <jepler> "on, Mai 27" is localized text
[21:55:25] <jepler> maybe the localization for norway is really shitty and doesn't cover much (but not even 'Applications'?)
[21:56:01] <alex_joni> I suspect the on, Mai 27 might be because of location
[21:56:26] <alex_joni> but it's just guessing ;)
[22:07:44] <jepler> is that background from something newer than hardy?
[22:09:19] <alex_joni> looks like jaunty to me
[22:09:20] <alex_joni> http://www.blogcdn.com/www.downloadsquad.com/media/2008/11/jaunty-softpedia.jpg
[22:09:59] <jepler> huh, this site claims that's intrepid: http://www.penguinway.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/ubuntu_ibex_wallpaper.png
[22:10:27] <jepler> though I'm not sure I can tell the difference between a jackalope and an ibex when they're made out of brown smudges
[22:11:25] <alex_joni> I think it's intrepid
[22:12:07] <jepler> the way to find the desktop path is g_get_user_special_dir(G_USER_DIRECTORY_DESKTOP), except this isn't supported in the gtk version that's in hardy (2.12)
[22:12:34] <jepler> http://library.gnome.org/devel/glib/unstable/glib-Miscellaneous-Utility-Functions.html#g-get-user-special-dir
[22:13:01] <jepler> the workaround will be to create a directory called Desktop, or to symlink Desktop to the localized name for Desktop
[22:13:10] <jepler> or to use a supported version of ubuntu, or to contribute patches for this problem
[22:13:48] <alex_joni> hopefully nobody thinks of doing _("Desktop")
[22:13:54] <jepler> that would be absolutely wrong
[22:14:02] <alex_joni> I know..
[22:14:10] <jepler> good thing we discussed that now
[22:14:18] <alex_joni> exactly
[22:14:23] <jepler> this will be a problem for pickconfig "make shortcut", but at least that is optional
[22:15:38] <alex_joni> well.. finished packing, so I'm done for today ;)
[22:15:42] <jepler> see you
[22:16:02] <alex_joni> on thursday if I don't find some internet access sooner ..
[22:18:02] <jepler> echo ${XDG_DESKTOP_DIR:-$HOME/Desktop}
[22:18:06] <jepler> aha here's the low-level way to do it
[22:21:07] <jepler> ugh, it's not as simple as that :(
[22:26:06] <jmkasunich_> jmkasunich_ is now known as jmkasunich
[22:29:08] <jepler> and for this guy there is a checkbox somewhere to skip creating the symlinks .. he could also turn that off
[22:31:28] <jepler> http://osdir.com/ml/svn-commits-list/2009-04/msg04707.html looks like the python-gtk people didn't get around to adding this call until after intrepid shipped
[22:31:37] <jepler> probably even jaunty
[22:31:56] <jepler> the two-line version shown at http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/xdg-user-dirs works for me on jaunty in vmware
[23:55:50] <lerman_> skunkworks: You invoked my (first) name three times. Did you mean to raise my spirit? :-)
