08:54:53 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
08:56:54 <Mic> I wonder what I should do about the Linux look
08:57:38 <Mic> A good deal of people (that's just a guess!) might have the Ubuntu default theme but that's it :S
08:58:23 <Mic> And if I don't know the look of the theme .. any color is as good as the other. :(
09:00:31 <aleth> Linux doesn't look too bad atm
09:00:51 <aleth> The red roughly matches the red used for "unavailable" already
09:02:32 <aleth> I thought that was the idea ;)
09:03:45 <Mic> It should be the same red as the text on your tabs has when there's an unread message.
09:08:28 <aleth> That makes sense :)
09:20:23 <Mic> flo: is there a way to create everything that goes into omni.jar (or the unpacked equivalent) from the repository without having to compile Instantbird?
09:20:29 --> mmkmou has joined #instantbird
09:22:18 <Mic> I've found a Chrome packaging section in rules.mk (http://lxr.instantbird.org/instantbird/source/config/rules.mk#1788) but honestly I'm pretty lost in these files
09:23:14 <Mic> And I've got mozilla-build installed but no compiler
09:26:42 <flo> Mic: no.
09:26:50 <flo> But on linux you can do it without having to compile mozilla
09:27:04 <flo> if you can find a xulrunner sdk of the right mozilla version
09:27:54 <flo> I'm not sure that's really interesting though, as except if your machine is over 5 years old, compiling is relatively fast on Linux.
09:28:06 <flo> so compiling would take less time than figuring out how to avoid doing it
09:28:11 <flo> (this is not the case on Windows of course :-D)
09:28:16 <Mic> Linux might be bigger problem than the speed of the machine ;)
09:29:04 <Mic> I've compiled IB on Linux already (about a year ago, it was fast and easy) but Linux is just not what I use
09:29:51 <flo> Mic: then it's an additional reason to not try to do odd things there ;)
09:33:22 <Mic> Maybe I could strip away everything that's not related to chrome packaging and make sure the necessary variables are defined.. I feel adventurous today ;)
09:34:04 <flo> you seem to have time to waste
09:34:11 <flo> what's your goal exactly?
09:37:30 <Mic> I want to be able to edit the css/xul/js files in place (the repository) instead of having to copy changes I made on an unpacked Instantbird back to the repository (and trying to get preprocessor stuff correct and to try what I did there
09:38:11 <Mic> (there should be a closing bracket before the last "and")
09:39:35 <flo> and why can't you just compile it?
09:41:37 <Mic> I can only answer that with a rather facile "admin issues" answer ;)
09:42:02 <Mic> Thanks for trying to help, though
09:42:35 <flo> you aren't sudoer on your linux box?

12:04:02 --> mmkmou has joined #instantbird
12:13:24 <Mic> updateFileMenuitems() calls goUpdateCommand() for the two different commands and is itself called "onpopupshowing"
12:13:42 <Mic> Does this goUpdateCommand() automatically happen when trying to use a command with a keyboard shortcut?
12:46:24 <flo> http://www.zdnet.nl/ (second item on the front page)
12:51:08 <clokep_work> Google Translate really didn't like that page very much. :(
12:51:39 <aleth> didn't realize IB supported the string-and-two-tins protocol ;)

12:52:02 --> jb has joined #instantbird
12:53:34 <flo> it's enough to understand the article. It says: having friends on different IM networks? Install each clients or install Instantbird. Instantbird is what is called a multiprotocol chat client, it supports <protocol list>. Then it talks about merging buddies into contacts, about the tags with a contact allowed to be in multiple tags
12:53:51 <flo> finally, it says as it's a XUL interface, it benefits from the mozilla extensibility, like Firefox.
12:55:17 <flo> Mic: goUpdateCommand isn't called when using the keyboard shortcut. goDoCommand (http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/content/globalOverlay.js#91) calls controller.isCommandEnabled though, so we get the desired behavior.

16:58:35 <clokep_work> flo: Is there much more to do before release or should we start thinking release notes?
16:58:59 <flo> we need the release notes way before the release, as translators need to have time to translate them
16:59:27 <flo> so yes, it's time to start writing release notes
16:59:29 <clokep_work> ...so you'd like someone to work on release notes then? :P
17:02:57 <clokep_work> I'll see what I can do...
17:03:21 <flo> the first step is probably to hg clone the website repository ;)
17:04:09 <clokep_work> I have that at home already. :P
17:07:07 --> linuxwizard has joined #instantbird
17:13:09 <clokep_work> Bah actualy I need to do a few things. I'll look into it tonight.
17:13:27 <flo> does that patch with the controller look ok to commit right now?
17:14:06 <clokep_work> I have no tested it but it looked OK to me. (And it seemd like Mic looked over it too)

17:27:49 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1041 maj, --, ---, nobody, NEW, "more info for this update" links don't work
17:30:36 <flo> I worked on it a bit today (added a few comments there with what I've found)
17:31:24 <clokep_work> Yes, I saw that. If you have a partial patch then I won't worry about it though.
17:33:46 <flo> I haven't touched any code
17:33:59 <flo> ah the various ideas go in totally different directions
17:36:27 <clokep_work> Yeah it seemed that way when I looked at it.
17:36:33 <clokep_work> If we can just grab an overlay that would be easy though. :)
17:36:50 <flo> s/ah/and/
17:37:24 <flo> the content handler solution sounds interesting, because it would also catch the cases that we don't know about yet, or that would be introduced in future toolkit changes
17:38:05 <-- rikki has quit (Ping timeout)
17:38:11 <flo> what I dislike about it is that the URL is loaded by Instantbird, which then decides, when it has receive the content type header, that another application should take care of it
17:38:54 <clokep_work> So you load the same page twice.
17:39:00 <clokep_work> That's non-ideal. :(
17:39:09 <flo> only the html file
17:40:46 --> rikki has joined #instantbird
17:41:53 <clokep_work> I guess that's not terrible then.
17:53:29 <flo> there's nothing preventing us to do both ;)
17:54:16 <flo> but I don't think the link from the update dialog is clicked often enough for doubling the request count to be a threat for our servers.

18:31:38 <aleth> I've been trying to fix a niggling little display bug on Linux
18:31:47 <aleth> http://i.imgur.com/Jx4pp.png
18:31:59 <aleth> and failing miserably due to my lack of CSS skills
18:32:20 <aleth> The bug is the missing line across the top of the conv-top
18:32:31 <aleth> The problem is drawing a line such that it doesnt run across the tab
18:33:01 <aleth> Any ideas?
18:34:37 <-- chrisccoulson has quit (Ping timeout)
18:34:43 <clokep_work> It needs to be the border of the background behind the tabs.
18:34:54 <clokep_work> I haven't been able to get it to work properly in Vertical Tabs.
18:34:57 <clokep_work> Did you check Firefox code?
18:35:16 --> chrisccoulson has joined #instantbird
18:36:07 <aleth> No... I don't know my way around the FF code, it would be like looking for a needle in a haystack
18:36:38 <clokep_work> You'd need to look in tabbrowser.css most likely.
18:36:47 <aleth> So you mean it has to be fixed in instantbird.css rather than conversation.css
18:38:01 <clokep_work> aleth: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/themes/gnomestripe/browser/tabbrowser/
18:38:07 <aleth> thanks
18:38:52 <clokep_work> aleth: Probably needs to be fixed in http://lxr.instantbird.org/instantbird/source/instantbird/themes/tabbrowser-gnomestripe/
18:39:19 <aleth> I assume this bug does not exist for Win or Mac
18:39:30 <aleth> or it would be fixed ;)
18:40:30 <aleth> Thanks, I will dig around a bit
18:44:37 <aleth> Hmm, I can't find tabbrowser.css in the FF tree, though it looks like it should be where your link points

19:27:00 <flo> it may be easier to just explore the CSS rules of all elements with DOM inspector
19:27:07 <flo> in both Firefox and Instantbird, to compare
19:27:15 <flo> (that's what I usually do for that kind of bug)
19:27:17 <aleth> I've already fixed it
19:27:39 <aleth> clokep's advice to look in the FF source was great
19:27:51 <flo> cool :)
19:28:39 <aleth> my confusion was due to the FF theme is split up slightly differently to IB

21:11:05 <aleth> Should I add review? to those two patches? They are intended as suggestions as they don't fix proper bugs, just change the look a little
21:12:41 <aleth> Personally I think they make for a slightly cleaner theme
21:12:57 <aleth> (but this may be due to the way it appears for me on Linux/KDE)
21:16:19 <-- aleth has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.1a1pre)
21:16:27 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
21:16:40 <flo> aleth: have you noticed you can add an attachment when creating the bug? (that reduces the number of emails sent for each bug report you file with the intent of attaching a patch ;))
21:17:04 <aleth> flo: I saw that, but there was no 'patch' checkbox
21:17:20 <flo> really?
21:17:22 <aleth> so I thought it might misinterpret it somehow
21:18:04 <flo> when I click the "add an attachment" button, I have a frame labelled "add an attachment" that appears, and contains the "[ ] patch" checkbox
21:18:05 <aleth> ah, I see what I missed: "Show advanced fields"
21:18:19 <flo> ah, ok
21:18:27 <aleth> Missed it cos it was up top
21:18:51 <flo> I guess I've been "advanced" for too long ;)
21:18:56 <aleth> :)
21:19:06 <aleth> You probably get it in emacs
21:19:41 --> jb has joined #instantbird
21:20:17 <aleth> There are another one or two details in the Linux theme I would like to track down in the CSS if I can
21:22:14 <aleth> But those details may only be "wrong" with KDE and correct in Gnome, or worse (OS-theme-dependent) - I will have to check
21:22:54 <flo> I don't think I would like to remove these horizontal lines (on Mac at least). If it really looks better on linux without them I guess we can ifdef
21:23:19 <aleth> I should probably add a screenshot
21:23:25 <flo> I was about to say that
21:23:55 <flo> if you can screenshot before/after and put both in the same image (for easy comparison) like Mic often does that would be great
21:24:09 <aleth> The problem is, it will of course look different again for someone on ubuntu/unity (e.g.)
21:24:18 <aleth> This is hard for me to test atm
21:25:11 <flo> I think the "chat icon" on the conv-top bar was supposed to mean "topic" (= this line in this conversation is a topic, rather than a status message)
21:25:35 <aleth> Right.
21:25:38 <flo> of course no "topic" icon was designed and I took what I had at the time :-D.
21:25:44 <aleth> It is duplicated on the right hand side though, and just takes up space
21:25:53 <flo> I'm not sure it's particularly useful, but it looks quite good (on Mac at least).
21:25:55 <aleth> Especially as topics tend to be loooong ;)
21:26:08 <flo> except on the right hand side it's the protocol icon
21:26:16 <aleth> Yes, that made sense to me
21:26:17 <flo> IRC, 2 bubbles, MUC -> 3 bubbles
21:26:31 <aleth> That carries info
21:26:32 <flo> we could really have a better IRC icon, by the way
21:26:56 <aleth> Is there an established IRC icon?
21:27:04 <flo> I don't think so
21:27:20 <flo> I think someone filed a "too many bubbles" bug
21:28:03 <flo> bug 804

21:30:18 <aleth> I'll add a screenshot of those two suggestions. I can probably do it for gnome2 as well, but not unity or gnome3. The drawbacks of Linux window manager inflation...
21:31:08 <aleth> flo: You are a Mac user - you decide ;)
21:31:13 <flo> I guess we could use red (as proposed in bug 1035 comment 0) for maximum visibility

21:33:19 <aleth> Btw on that first patch today, did I select the correct field for review-requested?
21:33:37 <aleth> Wasn't sure about the meaning of ?/+/-
21:35:46 <flo> ? is to request a review (and you should specify the email of the requestee, if you know who should review it)
21:35:49 <flo> + is to grant it
21:35:52 <flo> - is to deny it

21:52:11 <flo> it really really sucks that facebook arbitrarily decides that some messages of conversations are not IMs but regular messages that are going to be visible only from the website.
21:53:03 <flo> if they wanted to make the XMPP gateway appear broken on purpose, they probably couldn't do better.
21:54:35 <-- aleth has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.1a1pre)
21:54:57 <EionRobb> which conversations?
21:55:04 <EionRobb> you talking about the group ones
21:55:06 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
21:58:40 <flo> EionRobb: regular IMs, with a single person, when the other person is talking from the website.
22:00:12 <EionRobb> oh really? interesting
22:02:24 <flo> EionRobb: also, the conversations are flooded with unsignificant (and impossible!) presence changes
22:02:54 <flo> for example the conversation goes like: A is now offline. A starts typing. A: "blabla" A is now available.
22:03:51 <flo> facebook XMPP buddies seem randomly offline for a few seconds, even while they are talking and their messages are delivered
22:07:59 <aleth> Do they not like clients that are not their own?
22:10:45 <flo> they may just be incompetent ;)

22:37:36 <clokep> flo aleth There's no "real" IRC icon I've found (I spent some time looking a few months ago).
22:38:09 <clokep> And for bug 977, what does like Mail.app use for new messages? We should just use the same thing.

23:05:44 <aleth> Making screenshots takes longer than patching the code :|
23:17:21 <clokep> Patch backend code. ;)
23:18:32 <aleth> I guess :D but those little UI details were bugging me for some reason
23:38:14 <clokep> Yeah, UI is kind of rewarding. :)
