Re: stable version - windows installer

Hi list,
thanks to Jared and Wolfgang I was able to make some progress (er, I
thought) installing tomboy on a windows 7 machine.  I was pretty sure
I'd done all the steps correctly (as described here -
https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy/Installing/Windows ) .. I
downloaded the version Jared kindly shared here, restarted, and then
installed it. But, alas, it won't run..

instead a message saying "tomboy notes has stopped working"
and an .. error log.. that lists these details:

Files that help describe the problem:
  C:\Users\my-user-name\AppData\Local\Temp\WER1FFE.tmp.WERInternalMetadata.xml
  C:\Users\my-user-name\AppData\Local\Temp\WER3321.tmp.appcompat.txt
  C:\Users\my-user-name\AppData\Local\Temp\WER3351.tmp.mdmp

hmmm.. I suspect this is not enough information for anyone to tell me
where specifically I went astray, but..  i'd take even general advice
; )

sort-of-separately:   do I *have* to have  the newer version?  could I
try one of those older  windows installers found by following the link
on the instruction page (
https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy/Installing/Window )    Will all
versions sync via dropbox if I set it up correctly?

Many many thanks in advance,
really appreciate work that goes into this awesome software which I
miss using very much!

note format

Hello everyone,

My name is Ray and I've been a long time user of Tomboy. I was a list member many years ago but rejoined again just now.

First, I'm really happy that Tomboy exists. The contributors have done excellent work and I've very thankful!

Onto business!

Would people consider modifying the current schema of .note files?

I ask because currently the .note file is not conducive to storage in VCS repositories due to the fact that the files change so frequently even in the case that a note is opened and unmodified. Several changes might occur. The window position might change, and or anything else which might trigger the timestamp of the note to change.

I'd like to suggest that .note schema be broken into two separate storage units.

a) that which is shared across machines (the actual note data)
b) that which is only interesting to the local machine (ui position, etc.)

for a) the schema could deprecate the following elements:

  <last-change-date>
  <last-metadata-change-date>
  <create-date>
  <cursor-position>
  <selection-bound-position>
  <width>
  <height>
  <x>
  <y>
  <open-on-startup>

for b) the elements above could be moved to a peer schema.

Each note would be stored into to files effectively, the .note and (in a separate directory) the .metadata or some such.

Migration would be easy to automate and could be easily done on first launch after an upgrade.

Then with this change, one could easily create a sync hook which could connect to any git repo like a private bitbucket git repo (unlimited storage).

This would greatly improve the current state of sync in my opinion removing the need for specialized storage servers.

Thoughts?

stable version - windows installer

Hi everybody,

I'm using tomboy in version 1.14.0 since several years under Windows. 
Now I wanted to use it also on my Laptop, and was looking for the newest 
version on the tomboy website.

There I found out, that the newest STABLE version  with windows 
installer is 1.10.2. Even the 1.14.0 is not available anymore. The 
1.15.4 tarball archive doesn't contain any windows executable.

Is there any chance to get a windows installer of a recently released 
stable version ? It would be really a pity, if I could not use tomboy 
any more under windows. Even not thinking of transferring my several 
hundred notes to a new program.

Thanks Wolfgang

Switchng notes folder on Tomboy 1.15.4

Dear all,

I have just installed Tomboy on Ubuntu 15.04. I use it in sync with
various other systems through ownCloud, i.e. with the tomboy folder
stored at a place like /home/user/ownCloud/tomboy.

Heretofore all I needed to get Tomboy using this alternate folder was
to set up the TOMBOY_PATH environment variable. With this latest
version of Tomboy (1.15.4) this is not the case anymore. How can it be
done now?

Thank you,

Luís

Re: Building Rainy

Thank you. This was indeed much easier to do. Unfortunately the result
throws a System.NullReferenceException. I've tried this under both Linux
and OS X.

With debug information enabled, I get:

$ mono --debug Rainy.exe -c settings.conf 

Unhandled Exception:
System.NullReferenceException: A null value was found where an object instance was required.

                                        uihandler.CheckAndProcess,
                                        fontshandler.CheckAndProcess,
                                        swagger_handler.CheckAndProcess
                                },

I need to refresh my memory on using GDB before I can dig into this
further, but I thought I should write with a couple of questions:

a) Has anyone else run into this error?

b) In order to turn on the debugging information, I had to dig into the
Makefile and the solution file to figure out how things work and then
modify the Makefile. If I were to create a make target of 'debug', how
would I contribute that back to the Rainy project?

Regards,
David

Fwd: Building Rainy

Hi David,

You should just type "make" in the folder of rainy after cloning the
rainy source code. this will fetch all required dependencies via git
submodules and NuGet. There is no need to add anything manually.You
probably want to checkout from the stable branch, although current
master might work and has newer version of the webinterface.

Greetings,

Timo

Suggestion: Move the "quit" command off the bottom.

I have my toolbar with Tomboy on the bottom of the screen.  I'm thinking you developers must have it on top.

Most every day I "accidently" "quit" tomboy because I open up tomboy to look at my list of notes, but simply lifting up my mouse button (without moving it), the quit command is executed.

May I suggest moving the "quit" command higher up (or have a confirmation) so that this volatile command is not so easy to execute?

Building Rainy

Hi folks,

I'm attempting to build Rainy. I'm currently running a version from
about a year ago. I'm noting some issues. Perhaps they have been fixed?
If not, the first step to being able to find and fix them is to be able
to build the software. Either way, I should build it.

I'm using MonoDevelop. (Perhaps that is part of my problem?)

I got Rainy, which needed DevDefined.OAuth, JsonConfig, and
tomboy-library. I got all of those and dropped then into the Rainy
directory tree as specified by Rainy's solution file. Building this got
me errors regarding missing assemblies:

JsonFX, ServiceStack, IDbConnectionFactory, JsonServicesClient

I got the JsonFX source from github and attempted to load its solution
into MonoDevelop and got:

	Could not load Silverlight project 'src/JsonFx/JsonFx.csproj'.
	This project type is not supported by MonoDevelop.

Is there some other tool I should be using to build an assembly? Should
I be getting these assemblies prebuilt from somewhere?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
David

Tomboy always crashes when trying to enter preferences - fresh build - new Mac

Dear all,

I've just built Tomboy on my new MacBook (I'm new to Mac) following 
these steps:
https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy/Building/Mac
Got no errors during the make in Terminal and the build-process in 
Xamarin Studio.
As a second attempt I've also downloaded the pre-built package from 
https://www.dropbox.com/s/h8i69aguo9467x8/tomboy.osx-0.3.4.pkg
Both with the same result: Tomboy opens nicely, but always crashes as 
soon as I'm trying to enter the preferences.

These are the tools and exact versions I'm using:

MacBook
     OS-Version:    OS X 10.10.2 (14C109)
     Kernel-Version:    Darwin 14.1.0

Xamarin Studio Version 5.7 (build 661)
Runtime:
     Mono 3.12.0 (detached/a813491)
     GTK+ 2.24.23 (Raleigh theme)
     Package version: 312000068

Apple Developer Tools
     Xcode 6.1.1 (6611) Build 6A2008a

As I seem to be the only one experiencing this fundamental problem 
please could someone give me any hint about where I'm basically wrong or 
what I might be missing?
Many thanks in advance.

Regards, Klaus

Tomboy sync failure on Android 5.0.1

Just as I was getting used to having Tomboy/Tomdroid working...

AT&T helpfully upgraded my Galaxy S4 to Android 5.0.1 and suddenly I
cannot synchronize notes. The message I get is:

	"Error parsing response from Online Syncronization"

Is there some log that might have more detailed information so that I
can make a more complete report?

I can see from work that my Rainy server is up & running.

Thanks,
David

Feature request: menu item "close all notes"

Hi,

Sometimes, I get dozens of open Tomboy notes.

When this happens, I'd like a menu item 'close all notes', for instance
by clicking on the tomboy icon in the notification area.

What do you think?

Best regards,

--Martin
