actually eclair might not be active - BUT, unlike a lot of apps, it works
fairly well.

Re: [E-devel] Patch for disabling confirmation dialogs

I actually was speaking to a few people about this.  If each dialog has
its own disable checkbox then you can disable per dialog.  Then all you
need to do is add a button somewhere in the config panel to re-enable
all dialogs.  Of course this is a bit more complicated then a global
enable/disable, but might not be too bad.  I don't know how the dialog
code is setup though so not sure if this can be added in a generic way
or not.

	I'm not certain wether or not you'll be able to do this,
in that kind of generality, with respect to the windowing system.

	However, starting with OpenGL 1.5 there is available
the "framebuffer object" extension which seems to allow for much
of this. Here's a link to the spec:

	Maybe you could use this approach to construct a fairly
generic gl engine, and presumably support fast 'render-to-texture'

Re: [E-devel] DR17 Korean Locale and Theme (0.16.999.037)

Did some testing with this - managed to work out how to get additional
fonts recognised as "Sans" style fallbacks by fontconfig and then set
up E17 to use "Sans" across the board, but its a bit of a fiddle.

I remember once getting fallbacks going with the fallback setting in
the E17 font configuration menu, which effectively did the same thing
- but this seems to be no longer functional? I really liked this setup
- was quick, easy to understand and no hassle. And allowed you some
flexibility. At least, in comparison to the fontconfig "sans" way.

Thanks for the fonts too Michael - I hadn't known about them, and they
seem to be better than the Baekmuk ones.

[E-devel] ecore_dispatcher


I had to change my edje GUI from a thread. After some help here I found
a way to do that with pipes. I've created some helper functions to easy
dispatch an GUI update from a thread. Perhaps it's usefull for anyone.
Maybe this functions or anything similar could be inserted in ecore for
easier use in threads.


#include "ecore_dispatcher.h"

void dispatcher_init (Dispatcher *dp, int (dispatcher_async_handler) (void *data, Ecore_Fd_Handler *fdh))
  int fd[2];
  Ecore_Fd_Handler *fd_handler;

   /* Create the file descriptors */
  if (pipe(fd) == 0) 
    dp->fd_read = fd[0];
    dp->fd_write = fd[1];
    fcntl(dp->fd_read, F_SETFL, O_NONBLOCK);
    fd_handler = ecore_main_fd_handler_add (dp->fd_read,
                                               NULL, NULL);
    ecore_main_fd_handler_active_set(fd_handler, ECORE_FD_READ);

Yes, this was the reason. With 11 px minimum it looks good.

I'm just started with EFL, being used to GLib, maybe this could be
also done by adding some timeout or idle function to be executed by
ecore, and since ecore processes these queues from the thread
ecore_main_loop_begin() (also considered "main" or "graphical"
thread), these would run from this.

However, Ecore is not thread safe and this may bring some problems
using "as is", but providing a patch to use mutexes around critical
areas seems to be easy. Would it be accepted? If so I can provide
them.... since in few weeks I'll have to integrate GMainLoop with
ecore, this can help with the job, replacing GMainLoop primitives with
Ecore using LD_PRELOAD instead of the other way around (as I was
planing to do).

[E-devel] Look who's back

Heya ppls,

Just kinda wanted to ping all ma ppls and fellows of the raster harem 
(yup... we're all beyatchiiiiis!). I'd gotten pretty tied up on a lot of 
fronts and lots of changes have happened in a short while - I got 
friggin married!!! :)

Anyways... things are beginning to slow down again, and I'll be able to 
get back to some keyboard punching and head banging...err... code design 
and development :P - on entrance and entrance_edit_gui

I noticed that while I was away... we got the brand new spanking server 
we'd always wanted (yay!) and the new website effort is underway (double 
yay!). I wanted to find out what's the current status (if there is 
anyway) of a plan for a bug tracker for enlightenment, or a central 
bugtracking system which the various different projects can use.

I'm asking because I wanted to request for all that have sent bugs to 
the mailing list concerning entrance/entrance_edit_gui to submit them to 
a central place, for easier management.

If i remember well, there's been some hints and suggestions of bug 
tracking before, though i can't remember the conclusion(s) of those 
discoursions. I do think though that now we have a server, we *may* want 
to look seriously into it. I personally have to particular preference, 
so anyone will do, just the fact that we're using it is more important 
(i think).

Anyways... so much bandwidth used up just to say... wassup peeps.
