Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description When the taskbar is set to autohide, the Pandora button does not bring up the menu anymore.
315OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportMediumPairing bluetooth SPP devices doesn't work with XFCEUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description Hi, sadly the XFCE bluetooth manager seems to have problems with pairing simple SPP devices (an BT GPS mouse here). 1. Enable BT 2. BT Manager -> Add new device 3. Confirm Dialog and wait for scanning 4. Pick device 5. Select PIN options -> "0000" (here for me) In next step the dialog still asks you to enter a random PIN at your BT device (which is impossible here). Thus it seems, that the XFCE dialog makes troubles, I tried it with 2 different GPS. Pairing the GPS manually works fine: sudo rfcomm connect rfcomm0 00:18:E4:26:5F:14

Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description When the Pandora runs out of memory and the Out-Of-Memory killer fires, the Applications/Settings/xfce4/panel/panels.xml loses the entries for the menu button and the power monitor.
330OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportLowNetworkManager crashes after suspend to RAMUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description

Suspend to RAM uses less power than the low power mode, but the NetworkManager crashes often after the Pandora woke up from suspend to RAM.

This could be fixed with an update of NetworkManager.

178OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportLowMount-loop when booting from SD-cardUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description When booting the pandora-OS from sd-card by using the official tar, you will end up with your sd-card being mounted twice: once as / and once as /media/. I solved this by adding "/dev/mmcblk0" to "/etc/udev/mount.blacklist". Maybe this should be added to the default tarball? I'm not sure as it might be used in other ways maybe (beside SD-card-installation)? Background: I ran "updatedb" as root and have been notified by a message that there was a mount-loop. After adding the above modification the system still booted fine and "updatedb" ran nicely without a warning.
301OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportMediumMissing X keybinding for colon symbolUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description As verified with xev, an attached bluetooth keyboard can not generate colon (shift semicolon). xmodmap shows that (unlike a standard Linux system) shift-semicolon is mapped to NoSymbol. While it's find that there's a special symbol to get semicolon on the built-in keyboard, the other binding really should be there in support of attached keyboards.
258OpenPandora Main OSApplicationBug ReportLowMiniMenu: Pressing key multiple times only cycles focus...Unconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description EXAMPLE: MiniMenu with the option "Subcategories as folders" YES, and the current active tab i.e. "Game" lists: Subgenre folders: ActionGame, AdventureGame, ArcadeGame, BlocksGame, … App items: Abuse, Amoeboax, Arkaniod, Bloqus, … THE BUG: Pressing "A" multiple times only cycles the focus between folders (ActionGame, AdventureGame, ArcadeGame), but never reaches the app items (Abuse, Amoeboax, Arkaniod). BESIDES THIS BUG in the current keyboard item selection logic, I kindly inquire to implement: FS#243
265OpenPandora Main OSApplicationBug ReportMediumMiniMenu: Flawed tab display of sub-categories if they ...Unconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description I assigned personal subcategories to some of my games. Some of those subcategories share the same beginning string, i.e: Shooter, ShooterBallistic ShooterScoller. MiniMenu displays those subcategories with flaws! See the ASCII screenshots below. Note: The star symbols indicate the currently active selection. The main category tab "Game" being active: ---------------------------------------------------------- | All | Audio | AudioVideo | Education |*Game*| Graphics | ---------------------------------------------------------- ActionGame AdventureGame ArcadeGame BlocksGame ... Shooter ShooterBallistic ShooterScroller ... GameA GameB GameC ... ---------------------------------------------------------- Now if I navigate into the sub-category "Shooter", everything normal: ---------------------------------------------------------- |*Shooter*| ---------------------------------------------------------- .. ShooterA ShooterB ShooterC ... ---------------------------------------------------------- But if I navigate to the sub-category "ShooterBallistic", strangely MiniMenu shows 2 tabs, "Shooter" and "ShooterBallistic", and jumps right into "Shooter". ---------------------------------------------------------- |*Shooter*| ShooterBallistic | ---------------------------------------------------------- .. ShooterA ShooterB ShooterC ... ---------------------------------------------------------- In order to reach my intended tab "ShooterBallistic" I need to navigate to it again. Annoying. There the contents are as expected: ---------------------------------------------------------- | Shooter |*ShooterBallistic*| ---------------------------------------------------------- .. ShooterBallisticA ShooterBallisticB ShooterBallisticC ---------------------------------------------------------- The flaw is the same for all other sub-categories beginning with "Shooter...". All have the flaw as shown in the example "ShooterBallistic", only that it is themselves instead of "ShooterBallistic". One more example to be perfectly clear: ---------------------------------------------------------- | Shooter |*ShooterScroller*| ---------------------------------------------------------- .. ShooterScrollerA ShooterScrollerB ShooterScrollerC ----------------------------------------------------------
262OpenPandora Main OSApplicationBug ReportMediumMiniMenu: 1) "Notes line" cannot be deleted. 2) Note li...Unconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description Steps to reproduce the bug(s): 1) In MiniMenu select an arbitrary app. 2) Press SPACE to bring up the contextual menu. 3) Select "Edit notes line 1". 4) Insert your string and confirm. 5) Now at a later time you may decide to remove your note line again. Therefore you select the same app again in MiniMenu, then repeat steps 2-3, but this time: a) Erase all characters so that you get an empty string and then confirm. RESULT: Your change is simply ignored! There should be a possibility within MiniMenu to remove/reset note lines, the simplest being to simply accept an empty string as an input, that's what an average user will try if s/he does not find a dedicated "Delete note line" command. b) As a workaround I tried something and detected yet another bug! As I could not create an empty string, I simply created a note line only containing 1 SPACE character (=the string " ") and confirmed. This got accepted. If MiniMenu is in detailed view mode (press the A-button or TAB in order to bring it up, if it is not already there) and you slide over an app whose note line is " ", MiniMenu crashes! Maybe the bug is connected with the writing to / the parsing from the .OVR (override) files which MiniMenu creates for the affected files, as the separating value in OVR files seems to be TAB, and SPACE is also WHITESPACE, therefore some parsers probably skip/misinterpret this, and MiniMenu then catches an unexpected situation! WORKAROUND: If you ran into the problem, that you cannot get rid of the note lines anymore, simply start a file browser of your choice, navigate to the location of the affected .PND file and find its sister .OVR (override) file and delete it or edit it accordingly!
295Additional ApplicationsApplicationBug ReportLowMaking the pnd file executableUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description Hi there, it would be neat if an rc script containing this could be added to the os (and run on startup) : if [ ! -e /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register ];then modprobe binfmt_misc mount -t binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc fi echo ":squashPND:M::hsqs::/usr/bin/pnd_run:">/proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register That render all the SquashFS executable directy by clicking them on the icon. Sadly there is no way to pass the arguments to the apps (as pnd_run dont support that). A similar line could be added to support iso pnd.
260OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportMediumLow Power Mode: Input (keyboard, nub) still taken. Appl...Unconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description This is the related documentation: (Please update accordingly as part of the issue resolution) FROM MY USER EXPERIENCE: If you put the Pandora into Low Power Mode, then press some keys, and then wake the Pandora back into Normal Mode, your input (both keys and nubs, haven't tried with USB input yet) seem to have triggered something while the device was in Low Power Mode! What does really happen in Low Power Mode concerning execution and input? a) Input is received AND triggers as application execution continues or b) Kernel/driver queues the input signals into a buffer, and executes them on wake? If supposition a) or b) is true, then this would be one more reason to properly implement:  FS#259  OBSERVANCE EXAMPLE 1: 1) Start MiniMenu. Mentally note down your active tab. 2) Put Pandora to Low Power Mode. 3) Press shoulder button R once. 4) Wake Pandora to Normal Mode. You are now one tab to the right of where you left. Input must have been caught in Low Power Mode, but wether execution of it happened while Low Power Mode or later after wake in Normal power Mode is unclear. OBSERVANCE EXAMPLE 2: 1) Start gedit (a text editor). Insert the digit "1". 2) Put Pandora to Low Power Mode. 3) Press: CTRL-N 2 CTRL-N 3 CTRL-N 4. (Without the spaces) 4) Wake Pandora to Normal Mode. 5) For a fraction of a second you see the tabs building up. Either the input was really received AND executed while Low Power Mode and what you see is just a delayed window manager refreshment, or the input was queued in Low Power Mode, and only executed on wake.

Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description Problem - Login Screen does not accept all symbols of the form Fn+char Reproducibility - always Actual results - the characters :?#|$€"‘£¥@!_ do not work on the Login Screen with the Pandora's keyboard. When fn then the corresponding character is pressed, nothing is added to the string. Expected results - these characters should appear just like any other character Work Around - an external keyboard was able to enter these characters Aditional Information - While the characters :?#|$€"‘£¥@!_ do not work, the characters ;/\'-+=`() work just fine.

325OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportLowImpossible to not set password at first boot Unconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description

The Wiki states that the Pandora can be used without setting a user password on first boot. But when the password and password confirmation field are left empty, an error pops up saying that there is a password missmatch.

(Please don't fix this bug by just changing the statement in the Wiki ;-)

Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description I added: iface usb0 inet dhcp And ran: ifup usb0 But dhclient simply prints usage.
331OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportMediumHold switch key continuously sends X11 KeyPress events ...Unconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description

When put into Hold mode, X11 handles the power switch as if it's being pressed, and it generates lots of keypress events, passing them to the foreground application. Since /dev/input/eventX does not seem to continuously trigger, I'm guessing it's due to key repeat.

To reproduce:

  • Install xev and open it in the terminal
  • Put the power key in HOLD mode
  • Notice the "time" value changing rapidly

In addition to causing more work to X, it also floods the active application with key presses, resulting in increased CPU usage. In my test, switching to HOLD while Firefox is in the foreground causes it to use 6% CPU and X an additional 2.5%.

In addition, the key-press events continue even after the switch is taken off HOLD until another key is pressed.

A possible solution to this is to blacklist the power-button event device, to prevent evdev from listening to it (the key is handled by pndevmapperd).

290OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportMediumgnome-mount not availableUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description In GTK applications, such as Truecrypt, NoteCase Pro or Mousepad, the file open / file save dialogs have shortcuts to mounted file systems on the left side. If clicking such a shortcut entry, the corresponding file system's contents are shown in the right dialog pane. This works for file systems, which were available at boot time. For file systems mounted after booting, e.g. by inserting an SD card or connecting a USB drive, when clicking such an entry, an error message appears saying "Could not mount [volumen name] Failed to execute child process 'gnome-mount' (No such file or directory)" This is healed by sudo opkg install gnome-mount (which instals gnome-mount, nautilus, gvfsd-ftp, gvfs (upgrade), and a lot of libs (upgrades).. This has been seen in SuperZaxxon release 1.5, not in Beta3 (but Beta3 is the only choice in Flyspray's dropdown currently). I reported that error for HF6 I think, and it seemed to be fixed in SuperZaxxon Beta5. A regression?

229OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportHighEnable wake on alarm interrupts Unconfirmed
All Task Description Found I'd kept some notes about making the Pandora's wake on alarm function work... drivers/rtc/rtc-twl4030.c twl4030_rtc_remove (for when the driver is removed) and twl4030_rtc_ shutdown (for when the system is shutdown) functions need to change. Or at least the shut down does. oh YUK who's been using goto.... changes in drivers/rtc/rtc-twl4030.c twl4030_rtc_remove commented out //mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_ALARM_M); twl4030_rtc_shutdown replaced // mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M | // BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_ALARM_M); with mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M); twl4030_rtc_suspend replaced // mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M | // BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_ALARM_M); with mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M); twl4030_rtc_init added (before return!) twl4030_rtc_alarm_irq_set_state(true); Should probably check reg 0x2B with mask 0x08 to see if alarm should be left enabled or not ? but only in twl4030_rtc_shutdown and ?remove? NOT in twl4030_rtc_init should remove ever happen ??? I'm guessing it's best to not enable the alarm irq's all the time???

Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description If you hit the function button, then hit it again to lock the function keys, it doesn't lock the function key. The delete key, hold shift and hit the back space button, it won't delete, meaning it won't remove the character to the right of the cursor. I saw this on the forum, and confirmed it on my pandora also.
155OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportMediumCritical problems after rescaling GLES2 X windowsUnconfirmed
All Task Description When a X window which is displaying GLES2 render output is: - Either dragged out of the visibile screen region (?) - Is made larger than it was at the creation time of the GLES2 context then: - The performance will drop significantly as the EGL buffer swaps won't occur as fast as before, - The render output will be corrupted and flicker - In rare occasions crashes the application or locks up the entire system (which forces you to remove the battery) The problem can not be solved without restarting the application (Possibly forcing players to complete the same goals again as they were unable to reach a savepoint or similar things). This was confirmed in Mupen64Plus and the PowerVR GLES Samples and some of my own projects (which are, however, based on the PowerVR samples). As I didn't see any other reports about this problems (but had it confirmed by other Pandora users too) I would expect that it can be fixed by using a newer X, kernel or combination of them as other OMAP users would be effected too.
246OpenPandora Main OSApplicationBug ReportMediumClipboard content of closed app gets tossed instead of ...Unconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description FLAWED BEHAVIOUR: Copy and paste only works between 2 active applications. This is very limiting! If you are in the single task oriented MiniMenu you have no chance at all to share the clipboard between apps! If you are in the multi tasking oriented XFCE desktop environment you can only share between apps running in parallel! Not with apps which started after the source app has been terminated. DESIRED BEHAVIOUR: The clipboard content (within reasonable limits of course) should remain, regardless of the source application, so that you can paste at any later moment into any application.
236OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportLowCannot unmount SD-CardUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description SD-Card in Pandora can only be unmounted by guest (uid=1000) but not by jgeiss (uid=1001). Steps To Reproduce: Insert SD-Card (or boot with SD-Card inserted), Login as jgeiss (uid=1001), Try to unmount SD-Card via XFCE-Popup-Menu (right mouse click on SD-Card-Icon and select unmount).
292OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportLowCan't seek in ogg files using pygame / SDLUnconfirmed

I've tried the same code in a debian (sid) chroot (from extend utils) and it works correctly, as it does on my pc (debian wheezy). I suspect that the issue may be present also in .next (I've done a very quick test on a friend's pandora). Some relevant version numbers: * (on debian * (on debian
320OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportLowBluetooth connection lost after wake-up from sleep modeUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description

When an internet connection was established through a mobile phone (Android, tethering) via bluetooth, the internet connection will not be re-established when the Pandora was sent to sleep and woken up again. The Pandora seems to be connected to the mobile phone, but no internet connection can be established, not even when manually trying to connect. The only way out is to disable bluetooth and enable it again.

I had similar problems with WiFi, before notaz tweaked the system (—-power-saving-is-clearly-the-culprit/?p=249036).

94OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportLowBacklight control by lid sensor not detected after bootNew
All Task Description If you boot the system with the lid closed, the backlight will still be on when you get to the desktop. You have to lift the lid for an instant and then close again to shut it off. Perhaps this is because of the lack of trigger for an interrupt since the sensor is already activated. Can there be one extra check of the lid sensor after boot to cover this static position?
225OpenPandora Main OSCoreBug ReportMediumads7846 reports odd pressure valuesUnconfirmed
Release 1 (Zaxxon) Task Description using evdev xorg drivers and not the tslib drivers you can receive pressure axis data however there is a problem with the values reported by the ads7846 module and the evdev driver has no calibration property for pressure using xinput test touchscreen you can see the pressure axis ranging from 120-ish for hard press to about 150-170 for light press (low pressure values can be quite erratic) I could possibly hack the evdev module to possibly do something with this odd and narrow range of values, but I rather think looking at the source that the ads7846 module needs some work. is there a git tag that has a known working configuration? as I've had problems getting the kernel to compile the last few times I attempted...
