#emc-devel | Logs for 2009-12-19

[00:26:55] <cradek> touchy doesn't have any protection against loading a new file while one is running
[00:27:18] <cradek> task gives the right error, but the touchy gui shows the new file as loaded anyway
[00:27:37] <cradek> I never made the connection with axis-remote
[00:34:52] <cradek> I noticed recently that xemc just honors status->task.file. even if you open a new program some other way, it redoes its "preview" (listing)
[00:35:08] <cradek> I think that's pretty clever actually
[00:37:57] <dgarr> jepler: thanks -- i'll look into those improvements
[00:38:18] <dgarr> unrelated: a minor patch that removes an unwanted printf: http://www.panix.com/~dgarrett/stuff/0001-change-print-to-stdout-to-logDebug.patch
[02:40:58] <jepler> dgarr: thanks, will apply that one as soon as I can untangle my working tree
[02:59:06] <Dave911_> Dave911_ is now known as Dave911
[03:08:11] <jepler> cradek: I rebased the 'glrefactor' branch at git://git.unpy.net/emc2-jepler.git to be on top of origin/master; it was stale enough to have some conflicts, but they were easy enough to resolve
[03:09:36] <CIA-83> EMC: 03jepler 07master * r3f6baca0ec18 10/src/emc/rs274ngc/rs274ngc_pre.cc: change print to stdout to logDebug
[03:49:27] <cradek> jepler: neato
[04:04:43] <jepler> cool, and it merges with tlo_all_axes, which I was a bit worried about (since that branch touches preview generation)
[04:05:09] <cradek> we should talk to micges about merging tlo_all for 2.4
[04:09:20] <jepler> hm, is this an improvement over the bitmap dro? 'courier bold 11' is fairly similar in height, but it looks .. cramped
[04:09:29] <jepler> and actaully it is a bit taller isn't it
[04:09:44] <cradek> did I miss an image url?
[04:09:54] <jepler> http://emergent.unpy.net/files/sandbox/axis-antialiased-dro.png
[04:09:55] <jepler> oops
[04:10:40] <cradek> hmm...
[04:10:47] <cradek> too bad we can't have a pony^Wfont chooser
[04:11:49] <cradek> I think it's bizarre that I think it looks better AND is harder to read
[04:13:26] <jepler> ugh, I was just reminded of the fact that ubuntu 9.10 has broken Tk send, so axis-remote (among other things) doesn't work
[04:13:29] <jepler> grngrng
[04:13:48] <cradek> fff
[04:15:31] <jepler> % send wish expr 0
[04:15:31] <jepler> X server insecure (must use xauth-style authorization); command ignored
[04:15:38] <jepler> $ xhost
[04:15:38] <jepler> access control enabled, only authorized clients can connect
[04:15:38] <jepler> SI:localuser:jepler
[04:15:38] <jepler> SI:localuser:gdm
[04:15:38] <jepler> SI:localuser:root
[04:16:17] <cradek> wonder wtf SI:localuser is
[04:16:30] <cradek> some terrible sudo-enabling hackery I suppose
[04:17:20] <jepler> yeah that's what the internet is telling me
[04:17:32] <jepler> also the redhat folks have decided that ~/.Xauthority is insecure, so they're going to get rid of it in favor of SI:...
[04:17:41] <jepler> (bugzilla.redhat.com seems broken at the moment)
[04:18:50] <jepler> on the one hand, what is wrong with these people that they break X applications that have worked for decades .. on the other hand, what is it about the tk people that keeps them perpetually 5 years behind the curve on stuff like this?
[04:19:11] <jepler> 'night
[04:19:53] <cradek> looks like proliferation of dhcp caused this
[04:20:15] <cradek> hard to blame the X guys for that
[04:20:16] <jepler> yeah i saw that was part of their excuse
[15:19:07] <micges> I don't understand what impact have removing of tlo_along_w to 5axis configs and vismach
[15:21:04] <CIA-83> EMC: 03micges 07tlo_all_axes * rca3d29a79620 10/ (configs/sim/sim_mm.tbl src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/axis.py): Allow all axes tool length offset to be set from touch off window
[15:22:48] <cradek> micges: I don't think there's any impact except the tool table has the offsets W1.234 instead of Z1.234
[15:24:12] <micges> ok
[15:25:14] <jepler> yay, tk people have fixed [send] .. http://tktoolkit.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tktoolkit/tk/unix/tkUnixSend.c?r1=1.20&r2=
[15:25:18] <CIA-83> EMC: 03micges 07tlo_all_axes * rc536dd8b721c 10/configs/sim/sim_mm.tbl: Fix accident modification of tool table
[15:25:19] <jepler> too bad ubuntu didn't pick this up!
[15:26:00] <jepler> umm, but their patch is wrong.
[15:26:00] <jepler> ugh
[15:27:31] <cradek> fundamentally I don't see why it's tk's job to worry about this
[15:28:26] <jepler> wellllllll
[15:28:43] <jepler> they mean well
[15:28:51] <cradek> haha
[15:31:07] <jepler> sf is so slow
[15:31:18] <jepler> somebody should buy them one of those new dual-core machines; I hear they're real screamers
[15:32:46] <jepler> and I can't comment on the closed bug that they closed because of the flawed patch
[15:34:09] <cradek> micges: about your last patch: why not just remove the tests that no longer make sense?
[15:36:28] <micges> looking..

[22:43:51] <micges> z axis, setting tlo in touch off window on master dosen't work
[22:47:50] <micges> only when tool is not loaded.. (it seems to correct behaviour)
[23:06:16] <CIA-83> EMC: 03micges 07tlo_all_axes * r0d7845915848 10/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/axis.py: Remove not needed tests from touch off window
[23:08:33] <micges> good night all
