00:38:05 <smurfsmurf> Hello! I have what I am sure is a pretty simple question. I cannot figure out in 1.1 how to either A) Change the sound that is played on a new message, or B) make it so that the sound is played only on the first message received. Any ideas on how to do these 2 things?
00:42:54 <-- chrisccoulson has quit (Ping timeout)
00:47:52 <clokep> smurfsmurf: I don't think either of those are possible currently.
00:48:01 <clokep> They could be done easily with extensions.
00:55:39 <-- Mook_as has quit (Quit: gone)
01:01:09 <smurfsmurf> :(
01:01:18 <smurfsmurf> thats sad. doesnt look like an extension exists yet either
01:02:15 <clokep> No. I don't think so.
01:02:22 <clokep> There's one to remove the sounds. ;)
01:02:34 <clokep> I don't think I've heard anyone requesting just playing it the first time though.
01:02:37 <clokep> Perhaps you could file bugs?
01:03:16 <aleth> https://addons.instantbird.org/en-US/instantbird/addon/306 ?
01:04:19 <clokep> aleth: Doesn't do that. (And is 1.2 only btw!)
01:12:37 <smurfsmurf> yeah, playing the sound only on the first message received is fairly basic, every IM app I've used has that as an option
01:13:01 <smurfsmurf> makes sense too when you think about it, to me I use sounds for alerts. I don't need a sound for every incoming and outgoing message
01:14:36 <clokep> I've never seen that option before, but OK.
01:14:44 <clokep> Yes, so please file a bug. ;)

01:17:15 <-- aleth has quit (Input/output error)
01:32:50 <Adamodell> I really prefer the "only play sounds when unfocused" style options
01:34:09 <clokep> The way sounds are done is very extensible.
01:34:17 <Adamodell> and I don't think there's one of those either in Instantbird
01:34:32 <Adamodell> while some of the more user specific features would make sense as a plugin, some of these would probably be best integrated right into it
01:34:46 <Adamodell> I'm not really in a hurry for such a feature anyway
01:34:56 <Adamodell> you get used to the behavior after a while and don't even think about it

08:36:38 <Mic> I wanted to print a Forbes article and the print preview sucked. Adding a column-count:2 and width: 100% fixed that :)

09:34:48 <flo> I've installed DOM inspector in my default profile to be able to check what's going on the next time I see these aContactB is null errors
09:35:28 <flo> I don't know who maintains that add-on, but the overlay is on blist.xul instead of the file containing all the menus, which means that on Mac the "DOM inspector" menu item is only available when the blist is focused :(
09:36:15 <aleth> Clearly hasn't been tested on OSX then...
09:36:22 <aleth> When does that error arise?
09:37:30 <flo> aleth: some contact elements aren't correctly removed from the blist, they are hidden, but something remains, and that something causes trouble when trying to find a position to add another contact element

12:43:45 <clokep_work> flo: Because I'm writing a blog post in between doing other things.

13:11:52 <clokep_work> It does not seem to...but http://pastebin.instantbird.com/29475 does. ;)
13:12:32 <flo> clokep_work: the link works only when logged in to wordpress
13:14:53 <clokep_work> flo: Right, so I figured you could view it...but I don't think like aleth has an account.
13:15:18 <flo> if he doesn't, someone should help him have one
13:15:30 <flo> I don't see why he shouldn't be allowed to draft blog posts
13:16:00 <-- Kaishi has quit (Quit: Kaishi)
13:17:13 <flo> clokep_work: you missed a space between "Code." and "You"
13:18:06 <flo> "natural" doesn't seem the right word to describe an algorithm
13:18:41 <flo> "to show when you last viewed a conversation." -> "to show which messages arrived since you last viewed a conversation"
13:20:09 <flo> I'm afraid I still don't know why my vCard code doesn't work :(
13:20:24 <flo> "you — the user — wants it" want or wants?
13:21:05 <flo> "it looks like this feature will appear in Thunderbird 14." more likely 15.
13:24:54 <clokep_work> Thanks. :)
13:25:03 <clokep_work> Does it seem like I covered the relevant points from the last 1.5 - 2 months?
13:28:15 <aleth> Hi :) Do you want to add 'JS-IRC will allow some interesting improvements in the future' or something like that?
13:29:12 <aleth> Maybe it makes no sense without listing them...
13:30:38 <flo> clokep_work: it does!
13:31:07 <flo> clokep_work: although I really think some of the improvements mentioned in one line deserve full blog posts
13:32:25 <aleth> Hmm, XMPP vCard support is misleading as for the user, it's not XMPP, it's gtalk and fb only
13:32:39 <flo> +fb won't support that
13:32:45 <aleth> Nice summary :)
13:32:46 <flo> maybe drop that point? :)
13:33:54 <clokep_work> You just want to be modest. ;)
13:33:55 <clokep_work> But OK.
13:35:38 <clokep_work> aleth: Would you be interested in doing a blog post on the tab completion behavior you've improved at all? :)
13:38:44 <aleth> clokep_work: I could do that, but I'm not sure we decided it's completely final yet?
13:39:22 <flo> aleth: I read your last sentence as meaning "now is a great time to send us some feedback"
13:39:55 <aleth> Feedback is always good ;) 
13:40:16 <aleth> I meant mainly the last two patches, where we weren't totally sure the ping one would not get in the way
13:40:55 <flo> I think this (http://jnd.org/dn.mss/natural_user_interfaces_are_not_natural.html) is what I was implicitly referring to when I said that "natural" isn't a word to qualify an algorithm, although I'm not sure, as that article is long and I haven't read it again today
13:41:23 <flo> aleth: is it in your way?
13:42:53 <aleth> No... but I don't think I've used it at all in fact. Just coincidence of how the nicks work out...
13:43:27 <clokep_work> flo: I changed it so the algorithm is "smarter".
13:43:36 <flo> :)

13:53:42 <clokep_work> aleth: Yeah, we don't know if they'll stick, but it's good to tell people that, tell them to test it, say we want there feedback. :-D
13:53:49 <clokep_work> Plus it shows the amount of thought / care we put into things. ;)
13:55:01 <aleth> Oh, I didn't mean take them off your list :) Just possibly to early for a "feature post". Atm the feedback is best of the kind "this doesn't work as I expected" before you tell people what to expect, I guess
13:55:28 <flo> anyway, it shows activity
13:56:48 <flo> aleth: "the too early for a feature post" trap is terrible. It's too early to write a feature blog post until the feature is old enough that you no longer notice it and don't have any enthusiasm about it any more; at this point it's way to late to write a feature post that shares the enthusiasm we had about that feature when it landed
13:57:28 <instantbot> Just appeared in Blog@instantbird.org - http://blog.instantbird.org :

13:57:31 <aleth> Hmm, good point.
13:58:02 --> skeledrew has joined #instantbird
13:58:21 <flo> it's the bad (but probably quite real) reason why I've never blogged on many of Instantbird's feature

16:03:54 <aleth> Well, we have some time to think about it, at least until the current remaining ruler patches land...
16:05:13 <aleth> Yay, my restore-from-sync-when-zapping-places FF bug is getting some initial attention at least :)
16:08:51 <flo> which bug is that?
16:09:25 <aleth> bug 745706
16:10:10 <aleth> The main consequence of history loss is that the awesome bar is suddenly a lot less awesome ;)
16:11:20 <flo> "getting some initial attention at least :)" and it seems to be attention from the right people :)
16:11:28 <aleth> yes ;)

16:25:11 <flo> I'm really not sure about that patch. I think I will r+ but I "feel" r- without having a clear explanation for that feeling :-S
16:25:59 <clokep_work> flo: The tooltip one?
16:26:03 <clokep_work> I don't really like that patch. :(
16:26:40 <aleth> I don't either.
16:27:05 <aleth> It's a stopgap really, it brings the IRC tooltips to the level of what we have for other protocols.
16:27:50 <aleth> But tooltip redesign is a different (set of ) bugs...
16:27:54 <clokep_work> What it probably means flo is that we need to redesign that interface. ;)
16:29:12 <aleth> Also I don't like the way (for the nicklist too) the tooltip "jumps" visually even if some (possibly outdated) info is already there.
16:30:04 <aleth> It's not always noticeable thankfully.

16:48:23 <aleth> clokep_work: You don't when calling requestBuddyInfo - it doesn't matter. You do need to listen for the normalized name though.
16:50:05 <flo> would probably make more sense to expect a notification for the username you requested info for
16:51:09 <aleth> Well, no. That's what normalization is supposed to be for. You don't want to have to store whatever was passed to requestBuddyInfo, right?
16:52:12 <flo> stupid normalize function :(
16:52:59 <flo> uh, I don't even know what we are discussing, actually
16:53:03 <aleth> Yeah... I guess it was necessary
16:53:27 <flo> the normalizedName getter used in the patch seems OK

17:13:56 <aleth> Right.

17:21:34 <aleth> Maybe it just seems like it
17:23:42 <flo> about the normalize call, we have definitely discussed that (unproductively) before
17:23:58 <flo> has anybody asked you something about duplicating that code? :-S
17:24:08 <aleth> no, I wasn't referring to the duplication
17:25:50 <flo> when the observer fires, aren't all the existing info removed anyway?
17:26:05 <aleth> No, that's not how you wrote it ;)
17:26:44 <aleth> Whatever is returned is appended by appendTooltipInfo
17:27:07 <flo> I didn't expect it to be called for something that isn't a chat buddy

17:31:29 <Mic|web> Localizable should be fine, hopefully. If we get complaints, we can tweak the strings or in worst case, really make them customizable.

18:15:40 <Tomek> Hello :)
18:15:40 <Tomek> is it possible to have profile+history folder while dualbooting windows and linux? or would it be as easy as using -profile /path/ argument?
18:15:52 <Tomek> to have single*
18:16:27 <Mic|web> clokep_work: *ping*, you've done this already, if I'm not mistaken?
18:17:37 <clokep_work> Mic|web: Yes. I have.
18:18:01 <clokep_work> Tomek: It should work fine as long as you give -profile /path/ (Or even easier run it with -ProfileManager and then set up your default profile to be the correct path).
18:18:07 <clokep_work> If you have no binary extension that'll work fine.
18:18:24 <-- Even has quit (Quit: Instantbird -- http://www.instantbird.com)
18:19:40 <Tomek> what is precisely binary extension? i guess i have none, I just have some manually added addons not shown in addon manager
18:22:28 <Tomek> ...also my history is broken on windows since I tried nightly once there, I can see history only for new contacts, for those present while it got bugged history is inaccessible (even if new messages were sent)
18:22:55 <clokep_work> Tomek: I doubt you have any binary extensions.
18:22:55 <Tomek> losing histry isnt bothering me too much, can I just delete it manually?
18:23:02 <clokep_work> You can delete history manually.
18:23:11 <clokep_work> We changed the format in the nightlies, so that's why it isn't working when you wnet back.
18:23:13 <Tomek> ok, thanks a lot :)
18:27:33 <clokep_work> Tomek: Although...is it still producing broken history?
18:27:38 <clokep_work> Sounds like a pref might have been flipped then.
18:29:33 <Tomek> well, from that moment till now, new conversations with "old" contacts are inaccessible (nothing happens if I try show logs)
18:29:47 <Tomek> but I didnt try the deleting yet, must reboot
18:30:07 <clokep_work> OK
18:30:49 <Tomek> but I guess I will use the new unbroken linux history in the end :)
18:31:18 <clokep_work> You could just switch ot nightlies. ;)
18:32:11 <Tomek> well, in nightlies, contact list was a bit broken when I tried last time (a week ago?)
18:32:47 <Tomek> it wasnt using full vertical space and two scrollbar appeared (linux), is it known issue?
18:32:59 <Tomek> I have no screens though
18:35:04 <clokep_work> Tomek: No, that's not a known issue!
18:35:06 <clokep_work> Please file a bug.
18:35:23 <Tomek> I will asap
18:35:45 <Tomek> if it will be reproduceable
18:38:03 <Mic|web> Tomek: when was that?
18:38:49 <Tomek> about a week ago I guess, but I remember it appearing much earlier too
18:40:15 <Tomek> also contacts were a bit cut off (covered by white) on the lower side, as far as I remember... noticeable with letters like g, y, ...
18:40:34 <clokep_work> Please file ubgs on all these issues. :-/
18:40:41 <clokep_work> Linux has a lot of variations. :(
18:40:50 <aleth> Screenshots would be helpful too.
18:40:59 <Tomek> I use openSUSE 12.1 with Gnome 3.2
18:41:15 <aleth> This could be interesting, I don't think anyone has tested the nightlies on gnome 3
18:41:28 <Tomek> Gnome 3 is not well tested I guess :-P
18:41:30 <aleth> So any feedback would help!
18:41:33 <Mic|web> I think I saw the bottom of contacts being cut off when trying different default font-sizes on Windows. Maybe something similar?
18:42:06 <aleth> Tomek: By the way, does the nightly tray icon look OK on gnome 3? That would also be good to know.
18:42:20 <Tomek> well, I just noticed it (cut contacts) on IB 1.1 here on linux...
18:42:42 <Tomek> it does :)
18:43:01 <aleth> On the latest nightly? Good :)
18:43:45 <Tomek> once happened taht the text wasn't clickable, just the icon, but I gess it was gnome bug not IB (it was while using  live version)
18:44:06 <Tomek> and just once, even other time on live it was ok
18:44:21 <Tomek> not the latest, but i will try it :)
18:44:30 <aleth> Thanks!
18:45:22 <Tomek> Ill try immediatelly, just have to backup my profile ;) :-D

19:12:55 <Tomek> however, contacts are stil cut, so should I file that? isn't there somewhere a bug for it already?

19:21:41 <Tomek> hmm it seems to be just temporary, ok at nightly too now...
19:21:49 <aleth> The tray icon is OK?
19:22:01 <Tomek> yes
19:22:06 <aleth> Good.
19:22:28 <Tomek> at firts start, It the text part was unclickable as I mentioned before, but now it is just ok
19:22:54 <Tomek> I'll try deleting profile and trying again...

19:26:40 <clokep_work> Yes, you'd think...
19:26:52 <Tomek> well, the tray icon isn't absolutely ok... but that's something I've seen also with other programs
19:27:12 <aleth> Gah. And I just resolved it :-/
19:27:28 <aleth> Could you add a screenshot to that bug above? (bug 1351)
19:27:32 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1351 nor, --, 1.2, florian, RESO FIXED, Tray icon missing after moz11 update
19:27:33 <Tomek> context menu is partially hidden behind the icon with text in tray
19:27:53 <Tomek> it isn't readable (quit), but still clickable..
19:27:57 <aleth> Strange
19:28:43 <Tomek> I have seen it somewhere else too, but all gnome native programs are ok with it, the context menu is just a bit pulled up
19:29:17 <aleth> IB is a gtk app though, so fairly gnome-native ;-/
19:29:53 <Tomek> and rhythmbox for example has entirely gnome3-like dark context menu, but I guess it's just speciall case
19:30:29 <Tomek> banshee has that similar to IB, just not hidden behind, it's a bit higher placed
19:30:40 <Tomek> still talking about the tray context menu
19:30:50 <aleth> It's possible rhythmbox is built against gnome 3 libraries
19:30:55 <aleth> I really don't know
19:31:07 <Tomek> it's not important for sure
19:31:32 <aleth> Still, screenshots would be very useful. Since this hasn't got anything to do with the icon itself, maybe it should be a new bug after all
19:31:42 <aleth> ^^ just so we can track it
19:32:20 <Tomek> but I think that context menu placement would be hard one...
19:32:31 <Tomek> I have no idea what could affect it :-D
19:32:58 <Tomek> I was suprised when I noticed that some programs are ok with it and some are problematic
19:33:27 <clokep_work> Tomek: I'm pretty sure we like place it manually somehow in the mintrayr code...
19:33:53 <aleth> And we place it over the tray. And maybe gnome 3 doesn't allow that
19:34:18 * aleth mutters something about tray icons
19:34:18 <Tomek> possibly, I've seen none context menu over it

19:38:45 <Tomek> I will take it with mobile phone :-P
19:38:48 --> mmkmou has joined #instantbird
19:39:52 <aleth> One more thing: When you right-click on the IB tray icon, does a corner of the context menu appear *exactly* where you click or not?
19:40:57 <aleth> (I mean, obviously you can't see the corner, because it's hidden, but...)
19:41:34 <clokep_work> Wondering if we position it based on click?
19:41:44 <aleth> We do, I think.
19:41:59 <aleth> (haven't checked though)
19:43:27 --> BYK has joined #instantbird
19:46:07 <Tomek> everywhere the context menu seems to be under the pointer, but in tray there is not enough place...
19:46:35 <Tomek> could altering this cause problems somewhere else?
19:46:45 <aleth> Tomek: I mean, click once with the mouse pushing against the top of the tray bar, and a second time at the bottom of the tray bar, is there a difference?
19:46:59 <-- Tomek has quit (Quit: Instantbird -- http://www.instantbird.com)
19:47:25 --> Tomek has joined #instantbird
19:47:40 <Tomek> oh... I just accidentaly quit while trying
19:48:37 <Tomek> cecond click on the tray while context menu is open causes quit cauce it is just under it and the tray is clickable through
19:48:49 <Tomek> nothing changes, still in the corner
19:49:09 <aleth> Oh, I didn't mean the second click while the context menu is already open, sorry
19:49:16 <Tomek> well, I managed once
19:49:33 <Tomek> that it was all placed higher
19:49:42 <aleth> Click once, then make the context menu go away, then try again with the mouse pointing further down
19:50:01 <aleth> OK, so the positioning of the context menu does depend on where you click to make it appear
19:50:04 <Tomek> when clicked on the top pixels of the _icon_
19:50:22 <aleth> Sure. You just can't see the bit of it covered by the tray.
19:50:32 <Tomek> but just few pixels down and it is again in the corner
19:50:59 <aleth> I'm not sure I am picturing it right... Hard to tell
19:51:35 <Tomek> when clicking the text, all is the same, on the top half of the icon, it seems to be depending on the cursor position
19:51:45 <Tomek> will make more screens :-D
19:51:49 <aleth> OK. That makes sense. :)
19:52:09 <aleth> well, at least I hope it does...
19:53:01 <clokep_work> Can you file a new bug for this actually? It doesn't seem related...
19:53:43 <aleth> Yes, it's definitely not related to anything we've had before I think.
19:53:58 <aleth> New with gnome 3, yay
19:54:26 <aleth> Who knows what it does with unity, that's gnome3 under the hood
19:56:03 <Tomek> hmm the context menu is invisible while invoked by click on the icon part and moving cursor at least a tiniest bit (so the menu item is highlighted), strange :-D but when not moving at all, i can take them

20:29:39 <flo> clokep_work: so you think I'm writing comments that have nothing to do with the bugs?
20:30:47 <flo> clokep_work: that bug is that you can't change the spellchecker dictionary from the textbox's context menu until you have more than one dictionary installed, so basically we would need to add an easy way to add more dictionaries from the textbox context menu
20:31:03 <clokep_work> Right...I understood that part.
20:31:10 <clokep_work> Seems like you were saying we shold make it restartless too. ;)
20:31:16 <flo> but if you are interested in changing the language for the textbox you are currently typing in; installing a dictionary and having to restart is definitely not helpful
20:31:17 <clokep_work> Which is related, but not really the same bug.
20:31:42 <clokep_work> Hmm...I see.
20:31:46 <clokep_work> So it's confirmed then?
20:31:59 <flo> because what you want is sending the damn message, after the spelling is fixed! :)
20:32:20 <clokep_work> Not from what I've seen! People just let the spelling mistakes go. :(
20:32:34 <flo> I wonder if dictionaries haven't been made restartless in recent mozillas

21:45:03 <instantbot> New Instantbird (UI) bug 1383 filed by tomaskom.cz@seznam.cz.
21:45:06 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1383 nor, --, ---, nobody, UNCO, Contacts being cut a bit from the lower side
21:48:25 <Tomek> Should I mention in comment some details about the environment, like that the tray bar is hidden and shows up only in overview or when bottom-right hot corner is triggered? or is it irrelevant?
21:48:58 <Tomek> because I guess not much people have experience with it yet
21:49:10 <aleth> I don't know, maybe leave it for now, and if there are questions we can ask via the bug
21:49:21 <Tomek> ok
21:50:24 <aleth> Tomek: One thing it would be interesting to try regarding the last bug: If you change the default gnome font to Sans serif or Bitstream Vera Sans (rather than the default Cantarell) and then restart the nightly, is the contact list better?
21:50:49 <aleth> Just to figure out if it's something to do with the new gnome font...
21:52:48 <Tomek> hmm none of those are installed here :-\
21:53:15 <aleth> Oh strange. Droid Sans or Lucida grande maybe? Not even just Sans? 
21:54:46 <Tomek> seems a tiny bit better, but still g and such are cut (Droid Sans)
21:55:02 <Tomek> no need to restart btw, it changed immediatelly
21:55:20 <aleth> Oh well, it was worth a try...
21:56:18 <Tomek> also all contacts are a little bit smaller with it, while I have more of them it is very noticeable that it spared some place
21:56:34 <aleth> There are often small differences between fonts
21:56:41 <aleth> Does changing the font size help?
21:56:47 <Tomek> so it scales somehow well, but not enough
21:56:53 <aleth> (just trying to narrow down the issue)
21:57:50 <Tomek> well the more I enlarge the text, the worse it is, at 15 (default is 11) half of the text is away
21:57:58 <aleth> :(
21:58:10 <aleth> And at 10 or 8, is it OK then?
21:58:34 <Tomek> with 9 and Cantarell it's ok
21:58:47 <Tomek> 10 not
21:59:08 <aleth> Seems like it is not quite getting the right vertical size...
21:59:11 <flo> on your screenshot the "Available" text of the status selector is also mis aligned
21:59:49 <flo> the root cause for these issues is that we are mixing improperly sizes that are in px and sizes that are in em (proportional to the current font size)
22:00:12 <aleth> That could be it.
22:00:35 <flo> and I'm afraid fixing that is a lot of tedious work
22:00:38 <aleth> But if that was the only cause you shouldbe able to reproduce it on OSX
22:00:45 <Tomek> seems like ALL the text (except group headers) is misaligned
22:00:54 <flo> aleth: if there's a way to change the default font size, yes
22:01:44 <flo> aleth: I think it's quite easy to reproduce on Windows with the "large fonts" setting (and I think Mic even said that earlier today)
22:02:15 <aleth> OK. Yes, I suspect that would be a lot of work to fix :(
22:02:44 <aleth> I'm just surprised it hasn't been filed before then.
