Hiya!

Im doing some Mendel development (http://blog.arcol.hu), and I have a
working 3D printer.
Here is my offer:
I can print you prototypes for free.

You still need to pay for the shipping, so I dont loose too much money on it.

If you are interested, shoot me an email.

Also the machine has its limitations, so I doubt the final product can
be made on it.

Best regards,
 Laszlo

I highly doubt about the selling numbers of Nokia N900. It is the most
expensive
model from Nokia, with no other alternatives (from Nokia).

For example here in Hungary, none of the providers offer Nokia N900, so
paying the full price (590EUR) is pretty much a non-option for an average
person when he can get an iphone for 35 EUR
(plus 70EUR/month minimum talk).

I also doubt if it runs smoothly on a weaker device (processor-wise). Today
on the train I saw a guy with nokia N900. He was reading some texts on it.
Oh dear, the scrolling was awesomely laggish. As an openmoko user I
know a bit about laggish scrolling;-) It is really sad such a highend
device still suffers from it. (not as bad as openmoko though)

An iphone had never such problem, and it has a weaker hardware...

So Im back to my waiting position. In a year or so, my decision will be
crystal-clear;-)

 Likely. It uses basic GNU/Linux, and the modem interface is at least

What I fear about N900 is that it always stays as one single high-end
model to nokia.
There were always single model in the past: n700, n800, n810
No other phones appeared using the same software on it.

So I doubt if it will or want to become a widespread platform, or

 Somewhat disappointing. Although some progress is being made (and we're

I had asked, because Im waiting to a device to replace my freerunner.

I want to run fso on it, and 3G.

I hoped such device surfaces within a year (ie. until 2011) or even Palm Pre

 Do you use FR as your daily/primary phone?
Still yes.

 Do you use FR as your primary PDA?

Define PDA. I use it uniquely for listening music with lyrics, and my
own developed dictionary.

 What distribution you run most of the time?

SHR-U from september.

I learned the caveats. I use my modified paroli too. It has bugs,
problems, but I know almost all of them.
If it starts with cant init wifi service, I will not able to pick up
the incoming call for example.
The above bug I figured out in 2 months (why dont appear the incoming
call screen in paroli).

So there are bugs like this, but as I know all of them (never hang up
the same time as the other party, because paroli/fso just freezes), I
can workaround all of them.

 If you don't use FR as your daily phone/PDA, what phone did you change
 over to, and why?

I began seriously thinking to switching back to a normal phone. The
audio quality is unreliable and poor.


 The largest issue currently is sound quality during call. I have
 managed to get rid of buzz and echo but sometimes people complain that
 they can't hear what I am saying and sometimes the sound is amplified
 so much that it gets distorted. I have not been able to identify why
 this behavior seems to change.

My biggest issue too. It never really worked. I have awesome quality
with Motorola old Razor
phone (my gf has it), almost never have any issue (buzz, echo, etc)
and she is at the
same provider.

But for example with almost all Samsung phone, they can hardly understand me.
I have also problem with Nokia 6300, sometime my voice get chopped,
and the other party
too. So I hear from 1 sec only half sec, then nothing, another half
second, then nothing.
If I speak slooowly the other party can understand me. But I pretty
often need to guess what the
other party wanted to say.

Also I have problem with people who have different provider then me
(pannon vs. vodafone)

What is worst, it has a serious social impact. There are people, who
simply refuse to call me,
because, my phone is shitty.
When the above chopping occurs, the other party starts to be really
angry, and starts
talking faster and louder, which makes the effect even worse.

Talking to landline has no issue in general.

So in my humble opinion the audio (hardware+software) on the
freerunner is seriously fucked up,
and what is worse, the key people never admitted the fact.

I tried everything, I fighted with the issue more then 6 months now
for a feature which is supposed
to JUST WORKs. And I think my settings are the best possible what can be made.

As the audio quality depends on the other party's phone (motorola is
the best in general), and
also the other's provider too, I dont think it can be ever adjusted
from software...


I only kept using this phone, because of the dictionary and the music
listening with lyrics.
Thats the only reason. And thats why I cant switch to an other phone

I also hate the fact that I need to charge every day my freerunner. I
will look into #1024 fix,
just the situation is so frustrating.

I also miss times to times the incoming call, because Im unable to
hear the ringing...

 Laszlo

 Sure, I'm interested in that. But it is needed to design a CAD model. I may
 try to make one if I have enough spare time. Then I'll email you. Or you may
 help with designing too?

Im a beginner too (in CAD modelling). I imagine the workflow something
like this:
you model it, I print it. Then I post pictures of the print, how is it
looks like on the
freerunner, where are the design faults, and printing faults.
Then we fix it, and print again. And again, and again.

As far as modelling is concerned, this is the open source toolbox:
- blender
- openscad
- qcad
- inkscape

Inkscape is great for the logo for example (import it into blender,
extrude it, etc).
qcad +openscad is great for accurate modelling. qcad for 2d, openscad for
3d (extruding 2d, boolean it, etc).



 I assume you meant a separate case for gamepad addon, but it also would be
 great (as arne anka said) to have a full replacement gaming case for
 Freerunner, or at least a LCD cover with integrated buttons.

As arne have asked too, I own a reprap machine. So there are some limitations,
namely:
- the printing process is achieved layer-by-layer printing. About 0.5mm layers,
so you can feel them with your nail. At least 2 layers required to
really bond together.
- some postprocessing is required, polishing the plastic, to get rid
of the layers,
and have a better look
- no overhangs less then 45 degree. (ie. I cant print a standing
letter T because,
there is nothing under the top part of the T. Or the roof of the
house. (ie. four walls
plus the roof).

So summing up, we need at least 2mm thickness. So printing out the original
case is impossible, because it has less then 1mm of wall thickness.

But for prototyping, or having a gamepad, what you posted does not impose
such a strict limitation. So nobody really care if it is 3mm or 5mm thick.

When intone running the ringtone is double as loud

2009-11-01 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
Hi!

I was always wondering why I miss sometimes phonecalls.
Then today, I discovered, that when intone is running, and
I level up the volume, the phone ringing is much more
louder when intone is not running.

I tried to level up the volume through fso-simplemixer.py,
but even at '101' percent, is not as much loud as with intone
running.

If I launch intone while the phone is ringing, then the ringing
become louder, and if I quit then it get quiter.

What is really stranger, that intone set the volume through amixer:
src/dbus-stuff.c:100

sprintf(cmd, amixer -c 0 set PCM %d%s, vol, \%\n);


And in my /usr/share/shr/scenarii/stereout.state file,
 the PCM value is already at maximum(255):
control.1 {
comment.access 'read write'
comment.type INTEGER
comment.count 2
comment.range '0 - 255'
iface MIXER
name 'PCM Volume'
value.0 255
value.1 255
}


What I miss? Any idea?

Best regards,
 Laszlo

ps: since I discovered this, intone is always running.

 Hi,
  I've thought of doing something similar. The only problem I face is
 creating the edje files. But :-

 1.  If we're looking at going the edje way - which does give far better
 layout options (something I had thought about for intone anyway) it would be
 better if intone's look could be overhauled.

I agree. Completely alternative displays could be implement as simple
.edj themes.

  What I mean is, for eg - we could have rounded buttons (play/pause),
 simple animation for sliding out the vol control etc.

We can play with it yes. However I cant imagine what you mean under
simple animation for sliding out the vol control.

  The only reason I haven't moved to edc files is my limitation with the
 layout. Your help (or anyone else's) will be welcome in improving the user
 experience.

We can go with an incremental approach. So no need to implement all at once,
but develop always a little.
If you implement what I posted above, we are already at the .edje theme.
So no extra voodoo is required, we can replace other elements with our
custom design step by step.

So the first step is definietly implementing elementary layout.

 2.  I'll look at implementing the mplayer error reporting part soon. That's
 something that causes most of the remining hangs (if they do occur) - since
 right now intone doesn't respond to mplayer crashing / hanging / getting
 killed. And this is a drawback. The right behaviour should be to pause, tell
 the user something, re-start mplayer and continue playing from where the
 error occurred or move on to the next song.

Seems an important feature.

 3.  Then - I will add the auto-scrolling feature for karaoke.

I think it can be the first step, as it is only a minor programing challenge,
and only requires elementary layout, which is required anyway.

 What do you think?

I can help you, yes. BUT, I was never able to compile anything for the
freerunner, I could not modify any program which was written in C.

So unless someone can invest time to teaching me for compiling,
developing setup for C, Im unable to help in the programmic part,
basically because, I cant touch the code.

And I also lack C knowledge. I only can code in python and I know a
little elementary/edje programming (embryo scripting).

(Btw, I dont really understand why programming in C is required in
intone, as all the speed critical part is provided by third party
(mplayer, enlightenment). Besides intone does not launch fast.
It launches 6 sec for me on the freerunner, while my own python program
launch 6 sec too. So no speed improvements either.

Im not campaigning for python or anything, just dont know the main
motivation. Python is definietly easier, and development cycle is
much shorter (no compilation required).

If you are willing spend on me multiple days on irc, then I can involve
more into intone, if not I can provide example codes for specific feature.
Thats my offer;-)

 why double click ? for me, i am using double click for a menu and a single

Because when sliding, you can have accidental clicks. I know it from

  I will :-D Thanks!
  There are a few pending things to be done in intone. Will do them soon.


I also figured out a rough way to autoscroll lyrics based on the music:
1. We know the current position and the length of the music:
t_percent = t_cur/t_length

2. We can scroll an elementary scroller:
(x_cur, y_cur, x_max, y_max) = scroller1.region_get()

y_cur = int(y_max*t_percent)
scroller1.region_show(x_cur, y_cur, x_max, y_max)


It will be not accurate (so when we scroll with our finger, we should disable
the autoscrolling feature), but should work most of the time;-)
(also reenable when songs changes)


Also I have thinked a bit about lyrics timing function.
We should display the lyrics as normal edje TEXT. So
we can change each line's color. Also we need some buttons (preferably
over the text).
No scrolling required in this scenario. We see the current line and
past two lines and the
following two lines.

I can cook up a proof-of-concept gui for this, if you have trouble.


If you have trouble with my precedent example, I can finish the intone gui
(I already did a hbox with some buttons;-), just didnt want to confuse you.
But the idea is simple, we are using edje for the same as you used vbox.

 Why do all of you insist on using scrolling as the only metaphor to present

 hardware constraints (touchscreen jitter, for a start... not going to comment
 on the Glamo) I think this is very questionable. There are other metaphors
 available that would fit the device's strengths much better. What about 
 paging?



Or discrete scrolling. (ie. only scroll by lets say 48px height).

Also text only scrolling would be useful to speed up.
(most of our scrolling happens on the text).

Or dont load the whole text only the first 20 lines of it, and when you hit
at the bottom, load the rest of the text. (Im implementing this approach,
and I expect better speed of this *workaround* then what elementary
provides by default)

I do believe that scrolling can be speedup. Especially for texts.

I also think that a zoom in/zoom out interface can be also speedier
than what the current scrolling is. Ie.you zoom out the texts, and
zoom in the other part of it...

What I think our hardware shows really its limitation is the animations.
But I dont think scrolling falls in that category.

Strange behaviour of elementary entry and illume keyboard. Did anybody noticed it?

2009-10-28 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
Hi!

Have anybody noticed, when you type some text in a elementary entry,
then you click on any other element (a button for example) and you
click again on the entry.

Now the cursor is still at the end of the text. But when you send some
chars using illume
keyword it inserts the chars *before the last char*.

And what is really strange: The backspace button (or swiping left on
the keyboard) does erase the LAST char.
Even after you inserted some chars already before the last char. The
backspace still erase the last char.

Once you erased one char from the end (using backspace), you are back
to the normal behaviour.
The cursor is at the end, when you type chars, it inserted at the end,
and the backspace deletes the last
char too.


Any possible explanation?

Best regards,
 Laszlo

Lets count the elementary apps here. How many of them written for the

Sad true: almost all usable elementary app are written for the Freerunner.

Where are the other future devices to developing for? There is none.
Maybe Palm Pre reverse engineering will change things a little,
but its only a hope right now. (and also a dead-end, as the Palm Pixi
is a no-go, and
probably the future devices will be also)

So fixing some annoying things because of the Freerunners actually makes sense,
as we are a huge e userbase with a couple of *usable* real world apps.
Not demos;-)

In my personal view, even the Freerunner would be 10 times better
hardware-wise,
would not change to many things. As the lowlevel apps is getting in
usable shape
just now. I can use my phone like a month *reliably* thanks to frameworkd.

I think in a year or so we will grow out the Freerunner. But until
then there is a lot
of small usable apps to write!;-)

True USB plug and play experience

2009-10-16 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
Dear list,

I have using my laptop+2 Freerunners since more than a
month now with this setup.

I have written down this tutorial, because I have promised
to Paul Fertser:-)

http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/User:Klaszlo#True_plug-and-play_experience_using_usb_networking

It is working fine with ubuntu 9.04(jaunty), but I have difficulty
with 8.10 (intrepid) my gf's laptop, maybe
it is dependent on the Networkmanager version, maybe my
memory is a little bit fuzzy, as I setup a month ago originally.
So please test it and report.

What are the achieved features you may ask, here it goes:
* manually assigned IP to the freerunner (no DHCP wait)
* each freerunner recognised and separate name is assigned to it. (ie.
when I plug my freerunner in my laptop, it displays Laci's moko)
* a script is executed when the freerunner is plugged in
 (it set up the iptables rule currently for the network, but it will
 (in the future) also auto-sync some stuff with my laptop))
* I can access the internet from the freerunner without problem (no
need any manual command typed in the terminal)
* Each freerunner is recognised individually, and the appropriate part
of the script is executed


Please respect this work, as it took several days,
and some heavy help from NetworkManager's developers (namely dcbw,
asac and NoelJB)
to fully setup and debug it. It had various problems and headaches.


I hope you enjoy using it, and report back how is it going.
I personally love the plug and play experience.

 Laszlo

 About the information density  4 lines text too small - Why not use

I like this idea.

Also soon, a suspend button will appear on the launcher at the bottom
right corner (in the current git, there is already a picture, but not
a real button).

The reasoning is simple, when you use your phone everyday (as I am),
you want to suspend it *fast*. Without going to the illume icon view.

So I think the design should include it.

Until now I requested the following things from Jon:
1. put each topbar icon as a separate .png file online with an
appropriate license.
2. show me one screen with unsmoothed text (whatever it means)

(3) optional: make texts larger (its future work, as we are talking
about quite a number of screens here)

I have been thinking about implementing a bit more. I will read
one more time throughly the proposal, and write a summary letter,
how I think we should proceed, and how others can dive
into e gui development.

Jon: Can you redraw the home screen using inkscape? Just that one:
http://jonkristian.no/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/main.jpg

Here is a barebone .svg file, to get starting:
http://laszlo.krekacs.googlepages.com/concept_drawing.svg

Dont concentrate on the small details, ie. the gradients between the rows.
Use simple rectangles, also for the icons you can use your already
 separated .png files.

I will be offline for the weekend, so my detailed letter will come on
monday the latest. Until it's plenty of time for inkscape learning;-)

Best regards,
 Laszlo

ps: For gui development we will use inkscape. The reasoning is simple:
it is the best (open source) program for the purpose. So if we would
use photoshop for example, its a huge (financial) barrier for others to enter.

Also with inkscape, with a little training, you can exactly feel how
the gui will be build. In edje, the gui is drawn on a canvas, just like
in inkscape. Only limited thing is, we dont have that many tool (ie.
we only have rectangles, images, texts, etc in our repertoire, and not
the more advanced things like vector circle, spiral or bezier curve

Nice to see, that there is an another attempt. I hope you will done it right;)

I have only one suggestion:
Please implement a help button on every near every group, where you
explain shortly the most essential infos about the options.

I just launched your program and it picked up the stereout .state file, and
displayed the sliders. Screenshot:
http://laszlo.krekacs.googlepages.com/fso-mixer-screenshot.png

The screenshot is a bit wrong, because it does show the Stereo Out string,
in the middle (above Microphone). So it looks normal in real life,
dunno why the
screenshot didnt included it. (maybe it was rendering while captured the screen)

I would like see the following help buttons:
Stereo Out [help]
Microphone [help]
Speaker [help]

Help of the Stere Out page should be something similar:

Stereo Out state is corresponds, when the phone is idle
(ie waiting for incoming call, or playing music).
Microphone is disabled in this state, and Speaker corresponds to
the speaker at the bottom near to the Neo text.
[Should show a picture with a neo indicating where the microphone and
the speaker are.]


Help of Microphone page should be something similar:

Mic2 corresponds to XXX alsa settings (or group of alsa settings)
Mono corresponds to XXX alsa setting
Mono Sidetone corresponds to XXX alsa setting.
Microphone can be altered also by this alsa settings: XXX,YYY, ZZZ
However it is strongly discouraged to touch them.

Advices:
The monoside tone is used for XXX. You should hear XXX, when you
raise it. Highest state does not automatically means better/louder
voice transmitted.

Also some other advices how to correctly adjust the sliders. Like on
the wiki page:
reduce #5 by some 15..30 steps
do testcall:
you get very low volume at far end. but tone should be clear, no
clipping (sharp agressive noise)
if there is clipping: reduce #48 by one step (i.e. to 2)
then adjust #5 to your preferences and taste



Keep in mind that your program should be self-explanatory and
useful for even for the first time user.

If you want the explanatory pictures, Im sure somebody can draw it
for you. If nobody step up, I look into what can I make;)


There is also some AT command to affect the voice quality.
Mickey told me, that on his freerunner, value 4 works better then
value 5 (the default).
I think it should also be included in your program, to give the
ability to play with it...
(if the user are still not satisfied with the result).


Usability reports:

IT is nice, that your program switch the display automagically when the
incoming call happens.

However I think these are defectives:
1. when clicking on save there is no report what you did exactly, and was it

I think on shr, you should save the .state file to /usr/share/shr/scenarii/ dir.
So I expect something similar:
Copying /usr/share/shr/scenarii/stereout.state to
~/.simplemixer/backup/stereout-20091002-1424.state... Success!
Overwriting /usr/share/shr/stereout.state... Success!
Saving was successful, even after reboot you should have the same
voice experience as now.

2. When you adjusted the microphone while talking, and other hangup,
your program automagically switch back to stereout.state display
- no ability to save the adjusted gsmhandset.state (the state file
while talking)

We should be able to switch between states, and adjust/save them invidually.
Also you should display which one is active currently (bold text, or
something similar).

However I like your program! Keep it up!

Would be nice to create a googlecode project for this.

 Now these are just mock-ups, but ihmo pretty god ones. I've spent quality
 time thinking about user friendliness and what I'd like to see:) Ofcourse
 I've probably missed

Just some remarks;)

1: Try to put these pictures on the Freerunner, to see how it feels.
There are view
image viewer out there, or you can even write a simple elementary
application for it.

On my 15.4 laptop, the freerunner screen is equal to a 176x235 pixel rectangle.
So if you scale your images to this size, you can observe a few things.
Lets talk about the main screen:
http://jonkristian.no/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/main.jpg

Apart from the clock, none of the texts are readable. I can read some,
if I seriously
try, but my mom cant read it for sure.
To demonstrate it, here is a resized, blurred image (just apply
gaussian blur in gimp):
http://laszlo.krekacs.googlepages.com/paroli-ui-proposal.png

So there are some key texts which are not readable at all. There is no
rule (yet), for the
minimum text size on paroli, but I try to avoid all small texts.

So could you please repost your proposal with much bigger texts?;)

Its a huge rework I know.

2. Button sizes
Also there should be some rules for the minimum size of a button. Currently
the back buttons are 159x69 pixel, and the calculator has a button size of
96pixel at least in one direction. so I would say 96x48 pixel should
be the minimum
of a button.

Even if the button is not looks like as 96pixel wide or tall, the
clicking area should be
that big. An excellent example your own gallery site, where the PREV and NEXT
buttons' clicking area are 240x640pixel rectangle.

3. No idea what is the 23 number of the upper left corner of clock.
Should be 42, no?;)

4. Although Im not a designer at any means, but I think the pixelized
icons does not really
much with the smoothed texts.

5. The displayed numbers of incoming and outgoing calls are almost
unreadable. Should be way bigger.

6. In the current paroli gui, there are quite a big role of sliding
left and right. Its a nice screen size saver.
I think its totally lacks your design.

7. If you are seriously thinking to implement this gui in paroli, I
really suggest you, to try to draw some of the screen
in inkscape. It helps the implementation a lot.

8. There are many eyecandy in your image, which takes *time* to
implement it, and also slows down the gui a little. Im thinking about
all the gradient at the edge of each button, or the sms text view.

Other than that, I really like your proposal, there are some aspects
on which Im already working.
For example the background image:
http://jonkristian.no/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/main_custom_background.jpg

I also like some of your icons a lot, especially for the toolbars.

Im working (right now) of putting the paroli's topbar at the bottom to
be a bottombar;)
It is because the top is reserved for illume topbar, and two topbars
does not make sense. Especially, when its hard to touch the edge of
the screen. Would you mind to put the topbar at the bottom in your
proposal?

Are you also interested in implementing your gui? I would be more than
happy to mentoring you.

 I believe your approach to this is wrong, my mockups contains elements that
 for sure needs to be taken care of in the code,
 this includes, if im not mistaken, text styles, sizes, shapes of boxes
 etc...

In your proposal there is no place for bigger texts. It is that simple.
It needs to rethink some part of the gui. No code will help here.


 Have you layed out a plan for this, I am interested to see what you come up
 with.

Sorry I dont understand it. Plan for what exactly?

 Btw, out of curiosity, are you with the dev team?

Cant comment here.

3. No idea what is the 23 number of the upper left corner of clock.
Should be 42, no?;)

 Just second indicator. It could be 42 if it was 19 seconds later:)

Updating the gui in every sec, is a no-go on a battery equipped device.


 I disagree here. However, I see now that I should've turned off smoothing,
 just for the sake of visualization.

Could you show one screen with turned off smoothing ?

 See my first comment. Text size should be considered at a later stage, also,
 this is easy to change in code.

Cant. If there is no place for bigger texts, than there is no place.;)


6. In the current paroli gui, there are quite a big role of sliding
left and right. Its a nice screen size saver.
I think its totally lacks your design.

 :)

:)) Was it a serious answer? :)



 I used photoshop for the mockups. If paroli devs are interested in working
 on this, i will provide vectorized variants of what is needed,

If you *seriously* want to see this implemented you should wrap your
mind around
coding. I can help you get started. But you can't expect developers
implement all these proposals as soon as possible. Most importantly, because
paroli lacks some every-day feature, and has some serious bugs.

 but as my first comment states, there are alot of things here that should be
 taken care of by the code.

I think the best proposal is what matches 99% of the final look.

 As stated in my post, I am not sure about the limitation of the toolkit, I
 am unsure if gradients and shapes might be taken care of by it.

Ok.

 Can you elaborate? The background image is just used to show how it looks
 with custom bg.

Of course. If we broke down your proposal into smaller steps. Then
you have one proposal, where you propose custom background image.

I just mentioned Im working on it. And it is intead possible to change the
background of the homescreen in paroli (although it is hackish right now).


 :)
:)


 Would you mind to put the topbar at the bottom in your
proposal?

 Yeah, in my posts I had an entry about that, I would mine, as it breaks the
 normal flow.

Care to elaborate?


Are you also interested in implementing your gui? I would be more than
happy to mentoring you.

 Sure, but I am not a programmer, I would love to work closely with someone
 who wants to do this.

Nobody born as a programmer. The question is, are you ready to devote
2hours/day until it is implemented?

 I want feedback from devs and maybe set up a meeting. This needs to be
 planned out.

Not much to be planned. The most simple way, is break down your proposal
into small steps. Like:
- easily changable background image.
- adapt your topbar icons
- make the homescreen a list with icons
- etc, etc

Then implement this small steps.

 Someone on this list has already mentioned that they don't belive this could
 be re-programmed into paroli.

Hmm. We should rephrase this question, to something like this:
- Is it possible to implement that complex gui using enlightenment's libraries?

And it turns out, its a rhetorical question;)

(although there are some part of your proposal, which are almost impossible
to implement. Im thinking about your top shelf's sliding idea for example. We
cant interact with illume topshelf, and I dont think, paroli want to go to the
fullscreen direction (again), as it generated too much resistance from users
in the past.)

 It's also possible to discuss this more up-close on my site's comments, or
 you can find me on #paroli, #openmoko-cdevel, #openmoko

Hmm, you are not online...

Mokomaze and incoming call

2009-09-26 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
Hi!

Although I love Mokomaze, its just addictive, could it be modified in a way,
when an incoming call happens, it stops itself (like when you touch on
the screen),
to prevent CPU abuse?

What happened to me: Mokomaze was running when incoming call happened,
the call screen came up way longer then usual (ie. about 3 sec), and when
I hit the accept button it could not accept the call, and the vibrator
just rerun for a few ms in every sec or two sec. Really strange.

Then the other party hang up. Mokomaze, came back, I stopped it, and
recalled the guy who called me. So it was really a minor annoying issue,
but it costed me 1 min of call;-)


And btw, what happened with the mokomaze's dreams like:
* 2 player mode (I play, then i pass to her to play, then I play again)
* number of lives
* some score system
* some cheetings
* enemy ball or teleport doors or having multiple balls when you hit
a magic hole, just like what flippers do.

Calm me, that the development didnt stopped ...;)

So I dont know the right place of wifi enabling/disabling, managing
is in paroli settings. Maybe we should reduce the settings to
change wallpaper(not implemented), color costumization (not implemented yet),
ringtone, volume adjustement, pin code enable/disable, roaming settings,
gprs settings, and thats about it.

Time settings, wifi Im not sure at all, paroli has any business in

Anyway I should raise this question to the paroli mailing list, and see
what other paroli developers think.

In short: Im not really interested fixing wifi management inside paroli,

Can you manage to get wifi working by other method? (shr settings, anything).

Hi!

I just want to notice the list that the 2.6.31 final kernel is out.
Everybody was
waiting for it, to be able properly merge all patches floating around.

So I expect with the new kernel the following features:
* KMS
* BFS scheduler
* imporved wifi
* improved gprs
* improved resume time
* improved battery management, aka dump battery support
* No WSOD anymore for sure (not even in cold/warm or temperature change)
* improved everything.

Can the kernel developers let the community know, when new important
things happens? Is the new git structure is already in place?
Is the patches are revisited and cleaned up for the new kernel?
What patches didnt go upstream?

There are *many* interesting questions, which can be interested
to us, non kernel hackers.

Btw, who are the people behind it, who is responsible for what?
Some kind of summerization, and updates about the process
would be more then welcome on this link. (I think others agree
with me).

So start flow a bit of information to us, mortals;)

When the package will be upgraded more, there will be only one package (I hope).
IF you have a calculator app, then it is already the newest package.

Angus is working on paroli packaging, however he is really busy these days,
so there are some delays of the package update.

If you want to try out the newest thing you can always check out the git
version, and copy the folder as is to the phone, and cd into the scripts/
dir and run: ./paroli -e fso

((you need to build the gui, which is ./build.sh in the scripts dir. You have
to installed edje-utils for it))

As far as shr integration, paroli works pretty good, most urgent things
was already fixed. If you want to disable shr telephony app, you should
disable ophonekitd from starting. (ophonekitd is not part of frameworkd!,
just name coincidance)

To disable it, you want to comment all lines in:
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/80ophonekitd

After you need to start paroli manually after each boot.
You can also create a similar file to 80ophonekitd.

I use it since 2 days now, without any serious problem.
Although the automatic suspend is broken. I need to suspend it
manually each time. (it seems ophonekitd provided this feature).

You can find out how to configure oeventsd to do it.

In om2009, I always suspended via the power button, as it was not
reliable there either. So to restoring it, you want to disable e popup window
(suspend, shutdown, etc).

To do this, go into wrench-Input -key bindings
And delete all the two keybindigs (power button, aux button).

Then copypaste these rules to rules.yaml:
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/138541/

Then restart frameworkd to take effect.

Im glad there are interested people in paroli, and got their hand dirty
to try it out!

Best regards,
 Laszlo

Re: [SHR-U] Paroli working now

2009-09-09 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
FYI, paroli can be also run on the desktop. Just start:
cd scripts
./paroli -e fallback

So it does not want to reach freesmartphone nor want to use dbus.

You only need python-elementary installed. packages.enlightenment.org is
the right place to gather all required packages. (I got ubuntu packages there)

Hi!

Using **pending_return in dbus_connection_send_with_reply_setup()
without pending_setup is deprecated and strongly discouraged

When will shr get rid of this annoying message? It just makes
development (on the phone)
a real PITA. Or there is already an updated dbus package which fix this issue?

If the root cause cant be fixed, at least should be dbus patched to not output
this f*cking annoying message every line.

Look at this output:

The real thing is burried into this dbus warning. Just slowes everybody down.

Why frameworkd starts automatically playing ringtone, aka. how to debug frameworkd?

2009-09-06 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
Hi!

It looks like frameworkd plays the ringtone file by itself.
I requested before it in the program, but always got AlreadyPlaying
exception.

I checked the rules.yaml file, but there is no rule for playing ringtone.
I also observed the dbus line using mdbus -l -s, but it does not
print out from where the signal arrived (it only indicates, that a
service received the signal).

I checked ophonekitd too, and there is also automatic ringtone
playing, and looks like it is not ophonekits who requested it.

Im a bit lost at this stage, I dont know how to debug further.
Could somebody shred a bit of light?

Small improvements suggestion to intone

2009-09-05 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
Hi c_c!

Here is my list, what I would like to see to be improved in intone:


1. In the song list, switch between
filename/Artist/Song Title/Album view

Because there are cases were filename is preferred over
title, for example for precompiled hits, where the order
is seen in the filename. Example:
001 - Bob Dylan - Like A Rolling Stone.mp3
002 - Rolling Stones - (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.mp3
003 - John Lennon - Imagine.mp3

2. Different ordering possibility, aka. improve the shuffle button

The current play in order or play random should be improved:
I never liked the random function, because you can predict
what will be the next song:
http://xkcd.com/221/

I would prefer a list manipulating button. Where you click on
the button five different possibility button would appear:
* Order by filename (as it does currently)
* Order by album
* Order by Artist
* Order by Title
* Shuffle the list
* Party mode

The Shuffle the list possibility would replace the current random
button. It randomly reorder the list, but you can  see what
will be the next one. I think its superior solution.

Party mode:
You can interactively reorder the list. Like people come to
you at a party, please put XY as the next song,
please put a slow music next, etc, etc.
Dunno how to solve interactivity in elementary, ie.
drag and drop the list elements. Its not *that* important feature.

3. Improve the play once the list, play all button.
A third state would be also useful:
* play the list once
* play infinity
* play only the next song, and stop OR
play one song infinitely

So would be a three state button. Dunno if its really useful,
and so which one. Others?
(implement last;)

4. When adding new songs dir, should be a list view,
where it lists all added dir, and could also remove add to it.
(I already suggested it)

5. Implement minimal lyrics editor (MOST IMPORTANT;)))
(I already suggested)

Mark bold the current line, and a button, when
the music is there I push the button,
and it saves the time when it should jump to this line.

It would be also really usefull as it could autoscroll the
list. Currently I always need manually scroll the lyrics, and
it has a drawback: if I dont follow the music, I need to
search where the singer is. With autoscroll feature, I
could always look at the view, and it would mark the current
line for me. Timing is not an issue here, +- 1-4 sec has no
importance.

6. Implement in the lyrics view zoom in and zoom out button

I would consider this pretty important also. Not everybody
has a good eyesight, and the text are small enough in the
lyrics view. But my primary reason not this for suggestion.

I select words in the lyrics, what i dont know for later
look up in dictionary (read my recent mail with title
'My new possession'). The current text is small enough,
that selecting is really difficult. I would like to zoom in when
I want to select the texts.
With autoscrolling zoomed in would pose no problem, as
it would always scrolling for me, so no need to see
11 lines all at once.

The zoom in, zoom out buttons would fit nicely in lyrics
view next to the current Artist name/Song title text.
Zoomin on the right side, zoom out on the left side of the
text.
You could also hide those buttons, when switching back to
cover view, list view. And no need to manipulate layers,
as other views dont use this space at all.

7. Future idea: Implement effects for the music.
I already suggested karaoke effect. Others said,
the implementation is rather simple, you mix the
left and right channel in the way it lowers the singer
voice.


By the way c_c, do you also need this layer manipulating
demo program? HAve you difficulties implementing it?

 Laszlo

I envision an FSO daemon for it. I would execute simple script

Directories:

So we could put our script in usb (for usb net) and in wifi.
And we would simply write in our script, that delete the other
script from usb dir (if our script is executed in wifi dir).

The timeout script would simply correspond to
'launch this program at 16:00', and we could simply
implement a alarm application;). Than in the script would
simply launch fso-alarm through dbus.;)))

It would be dead simple and robust implementation.
No need extra voodoo, only put the right dir your program.

Re: Small improvements suggestion to intone

2009-09-05 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
  Can you check if there is no intone / mplayer process hung in the
 background? That could lock up the db.
  Then rm -rf .intone and run intone.

I will also reboot the phone. But there is no intone for sure.

 now if you want to disable the shr phone apps without removing them comment

If you comment out 80ophonekitd, there will be no sound when you
are on line. So the ringing works, but no sound either on the callee
side nor on the caller side.


However if you dont disable it, it will bring app shr's white screen with the
tiny phone number in the middle. Dunno how to disable it.

Would be nice to know how a proper calling sequence are built.
So what exactly is needed to send on the dbus.

Im really lost here.

Re: intone and symlinks

 Try with img.smoot_set(1/0) and see if it changes

  Well, I've committed the source with changes to get a (smooth) image for
 cover art - and yes, it does make a huge difference.
  Thanks.

np

 PS: Here's the intone binary for the impatient. (not ipk - just the
 /usr/bin/intone binary)

Thanks, I will report asap.

Report about symlinks:

It seems, it has bugs. I could added some of the music once from symlink,
but most of the time it just does not add it at all.
Im testing it more then 2 days now, and can not really see the pattern,
but does not work as expected.

So Im proposing this solution:
1. Forget about symlinks. User can add multiple directory anyway (I didnt
know this feature, thats why I whined about symlinks)

2. Implement a list view where we can simply add and remove directories.

Thats it. Should be dead simple, because intone likes to crashes, and
I suspect most of the crashes are related to path handling/database.

So implement this simple approach. No more no less;)

Best regards,
 Khiraly

I really suggest you to keep it. On my freerunner the power button are

to wake up the device from suspend.
I highly bet this is a custom part.


Really 70$ is not much, for me, the shipping cost would be about the same.
So really, keep it (if you are planning to buy a new freerunner).

My new possession: Lyrics and vocabulary learning with intone

2009-09-04 Thread Laszlo KREKACS
Dear list,

I thought I share my newest hobby using the Freerunner.
I downloaded lyrics to my musics automatically[1], and when I
listen to the music, I mark the words, which I dont know,
and later I download them from wiktionary.com with the
pronounced .ogg file. And I put them into a 'dict'
directory like:
-rw-r--r--1 root root15122 Sep  3 18:41 assured.ogg
-rw-r--r--1 root root  368 Sep  3 18:44 assured.txt
-rw-r--r--1 root root12086 Sep  3 18:41 hound.ogg
-rw-r--r--1 root root 1464 Sep  3 18:41 hound.txt
-rw-r--r--1 root root12443 Sep  3 18:41 possession.ogg
-rw-r--r--1 root root  316 Sep  3 18:41 possession.txt


For learning the vocabulary, I select the 'dict' folder from
the folders/playlist, and I hear again, and again the
words until I memorized enough.
In the lyrics view I have the definition of all words.

Later, when I learned more or less the words, I
put newlines into the definition, so I only
see the word (what is pronounced), but I
need to scroll for the definition. Thats way
I only check the words, which I forgot.

I think Freerunner became an ideal language learning platform.

 Can you send me a link - or put up the script on Intone's wiki page. Th
 should help people.

Ok, here is my quickdirty script. Feel free to contribute, and make
the script better. It works for me(TM).
It has problems, if the lyrics contain utf8 char (example: dash), it fails
to download.
It happened 12 times from 500 music files. So I didnt care to fix it.


1. Download lyric: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/lyricwiki/0.1.9
2. Put into a dir and make the 'lyrics_downloader' variable
accordingly.
3. Save the script into the same dir as your downloadable
music files are. call the script with no argument.

Hope it is useful to someone.

Best regards,
 Laszlo
