 Advanced Geocaching Tool for Linux has all important features to make
 your
 geocaching life easier:

 - download geocaches for offline use with full text, hints  images on
 your
 freerunner
 - map view with icons for nearby geocaches (uses openstreetmaps and
 tangogps
 map directory, downloades missing tiles automatically)
 - search the internal database for geocaches by name or type
 - target selection: selected geocache, one of its waypoints or manual
 input

 more at http://www.opkg.org/package_268.html
 Testing the latest version 0.1.2:
 - I do not seem to get a GPS fix (other GPS applications do get a fix)
 - I try do download caches, the console does show some caches are 
 downloaded (I recognize names from the neighbourhood) but they are not 
 shown on the map.


 
 Hans, please test the new package. I did not experience problems with GPS
 fix in 0.1.2, but maybe restarting the app can help. 
 The second bug you describe was indeed there. Should work by now.
 

I both upgraded shr-unstable and AGTL and everything is working great now!

Yes, the crosshair is intentionally. I plan to integrate an option to switch
it on or off. 

Map drawing will never be as fast as the map drawing in tangogps. This is
indeed a python limitation, although i don't know if it is already as fast
as it can be. Maybe we have some python expert here who can look over my
implementation?

Sorry, but i absolutely don't want these icons in the app, for some reasons:
- the licensing issues you already mentioned
- but more importantly, these icons are very big. You don't see where the
geocache is actually located. Therefore i choose the square (so you can
easily spot the geocache) with the little crosshair in the center (so you
can see where _exactly_ the geocache is located).
- drawing the icons would be slower than drawing simple squares and lines
- it's easier to make the squares and lines translucent, so that the user
can see underlying streets

After several requests to l...@groundspeak.com and cont...@groundspeak.com I
finally got permission to include the cache icons in my geocaching
enhancements to TangoGPS, so that isn't an issue anymore - you just have to

Can be resolved, see my other mail

I find it more intuitive to see the original pixmaps, and as they stay the
same size (32x32px) as I zoom in to let's say level 20 when near a cache
that corresponds to just a few centimeters on a map, thus much less than the
general accuracy of the GPSr ...

- drawing the icons would be slower than drawing simple squares and lines


Is that so?  It's on my Todo-List to benchmark these different approaches,
but not necessarily a major slow-down from my expererience.

- it's easier to make the squares and lines translucent, so that the user
 can see underlying streets


That is a valid point in my opinion, plus it offers several posiibilities
(nice to see the names on the map, btw!)

So to me there are no apparent technical difficulties to do so, but of
course this depends entirely on the intended design of the SW, and the
result is most likely merely a cosmetical one. Nice to see some
alternatives, though, and the online features and the database browsing is a
real plus here!

Re: Towards paperless geocaching - Advanced Geocaching Tool for Linux

2009-09-01 Thread Dan Staley
After using this app for a day of geocaching, I have to say it works quite
well!

My suggestions:
Request the 'Display' resource (or at least the CPU) while the program is
running.  This will keep frameworkd from blanking the screen/suspending when
you are looking for the cache!
Perhaps allow the user to mark whether they found or didn't find the cache,
and then allow the user to send all the data to geocaching.com later.

Thanks again for this app and introducing me to this hobby!
I'm having a blast!

Re: Towards paperless geocaching - Advanced Geocaching Tool for Linux

2009-08-31 Thread D. Fett

I just made an update to the opkg.org package, we are not at version 0.1.0.
Some of the improvements:
- added option to control whether images will be downloaded
- added option to set up map tile path
- improved drawing if map tile is not available
- added notes text field for each geocache
- speed up map display
- show filter indicator
- field-tested the app
- colors on non-standard themes should look right now :-)

Happy geocaching!

  - speed up map display

 It may be just me, but it feels slower than the last version...
 Especially reaching the map view the first time after starting the app
 takes very long.

  - colors on non-standard themes should look right now :-)

 Works in principle. :) You still seem to set the text color once on the
 map view tab, after having had that visible all the text gets black on
 black again...

 Thanks for the update, it's getting better and better!

Thanks for this app!  I never looked into geocaching beforeand i just
downloaded your app and see there are TONS of geocaches hidden around my
city!
I'm extremely excited about going out and using this app to help me find
some!  Thanks!

I'm trying to try this ;), but I cannot seem to download caches. Does
downloading require me to have a gc.com subscription to make mass cache
downloads? AGT keeps telling me my user/pass (definitely correct) are
wrong...

It should work with a regular user account. Are you sure your network
connection works?

Re: Towards paperless geocaching - Advanced Geocaching Tool for Linux

2009-08-28 Thread Marcel
Yes, I'm sure about that and now as I tried again it worked. Strange.
Does the program need a restart first to write the data to a config
file? Just guessing here...
Anyway, next issue :) Downloading works quite fine, had to create
~/caches first and wondered why it won't work...
Could you please make the Maps dir configurable? I luckily have a
symlink ~/Maps - mapdir, but someone else won't...
Do you somehow set the font color(s) yourself? I use the gtk-theme-neo
(black bg and green borders/text) on which the black text in AGT is
unreadable.

Still being able to get the cache descriptions right on the neo is
great, now I don't have to print pages and pages of caches anymore. :D

Exactly this may be the case. Will check that later

Should be created automatically, but apparently that doesn't work. 


Marcel-2 wrote:

That should be no problem. Until now, I only know about tangoGPS downloading
maps automatically, to the ~/Maps folder. Which application expects the maps
somewhere else and does it have the same folder structure?

Yes, for lazyness reasons I set the color to black. Works for everyone...
well... or maybe.. just for me. Changing this in the next release :-)

I don't know where it expects the map data (probably also in ~/Maps),
but omgps also uses the folder/map data structure created by tgps.
My point was just to be able to set the map root, the location of the
Maps folder. Data structure in it is the same for omgps, gps and agt
afaik.

I didn't experience a single crash the maybe 15 minutes I was playing
round (clicking options at random) with it, that's a good omen :)
