135ApplicationBug ReportLowOOM Killer causes loss of items in xfce4-panel configur...Unconfirmed
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.
222ApplicationBug ReportLowLogin Screen does not accept all symbols of the form Fn...Unconfirmed
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.
246ApplicationBug ReportMediumClipboard content of closed app gets tossed instead of ...Unconfirmed
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.
258ApplicationBug ReportLowMiniMenu: Pressing key multiple times only cycles focus...Unconfirmed
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
262ApplicationBug ReportMediumMiniMenu: 1) "Notes line" cannot be deleted. 2) Note li...Unconfirmed
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!
265ApplicationBug ReportMediumMiniMenu: Flawed tab display of sub-categories if they ...Unconfirmed
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 ----------------------------------------------------------
335ApplicationBug ReportLowEvince 2.30 crashes when fullscreenUnconfirmed
Task Description


Evince 2.30 often crashes with the following error message:

(evince:2834): EvinceDocument-CRITICAL **: ev_image_save_tmp: assertion `GDK_IS_PIXBUF (pixbuf)' failed
Segmentation fault

How to reproduce: open Evince,  select a PDF file, go into fullscreen mode, then click into the body of the document.

105ApplicationFeature RequestVery LowNubs feature requestNew
Task Description The 'Nubs' application needs a setting for deadzone. Using the nubs in First person shooters the nubs trigger in directions when not even touched. An adjustment for deadzone would eliminate accidental movement caused by vibration. Also, application profiles for the nubs would be very useful. Different apps use the nubs in different ways and it would be great to not have to go and change settings before launching each application.
106ApplicationFeature RequestVery LowAppData corruptionUnconfirmed
Task Description The appdata folder was corrupted on my SD card from an unclean eject this made the folder read only until i ran a repaired it. MiniMenu still displayed all my PND files. When clicking to launch the app would try to load crash and then return to MiniMenu without any visible error. This was pretty confusing and i thought it might be a good fix for a troubleshooting guide.
217ApplicationFeature RequestLowAdd Mounting and unmounting context options for PND'sUnconfirmed
Task Description It'll have to be in the SKEL. /etc/skel/Applications/Settings/Thunar/uca.xml People can replace the contents of their current uca.xml file with the following to gain this functionality now. /home/[USERNAME]/Applications/Settings/Thunar/uca.xml Terminal Open Terminal Here exo-open --working-directory %f --launch TerminalEmulator Example for a custom action * emblem-symbolic-link Mount PND /usr/pandora/scripts/ -p %f -m && thunar /mnt/utmp/ *.pnd;*.PND gtk-jump-to-rtl Unmount PND /usr/pandora/scripts/ -p %f -u *.pnd;*.PND
238ApplicationFeature RequestLowQuick key access to OK in dialoguesUnconfirmed
Task Description PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In many GUI dialogues the default action button (OK, ACCEPT, YES, …) cannot be triggered with a simple key press. Pressing ENTER triggers the element which has focus (usually the first dialogue element), but not the default action, as most computer users would expect! MY WORKAROUND MEANWHILE: Press ALT plus the underlined letter of your desired action. But that's not very convenient as the underlined letter needs to be looked upon first, as the button label can differ from situation to situation (ACCEPT, OK, YES, …) and then 2 keys need to be pressed. SUGGESTED SOLUTION: The custom of many operating systems should be adapted on the OpenPandora as well. SPACE triggers the currently focused element (whatever that may be: list item, radio button, checkbox, etc), and ENTER triggers the default action of that dialogue. Or even better use the Pandora specific A/B/Y/X keys cleverly in those dialogues/selections. I don't know whether there is a standard functionality assignment within this key-group, in MiniMenu "B" is start/confirm, I do not know of any other standard assignments yet.
239ApplicationFeature RequestLowMiniMenu: New option: Grid stop horizontalUnconfirmed
Task Description I am suggesting the new option "Grid stop horizontal" for MiniMenu with the following possible settings and their effect. Yes -> If the boundary is reached the focus remains there. No -> If the boundary is reached the focus starts at the opposite side again. Jump to next/prev line -> If the boundary is reached the focus jumps to the next/previous line and the opposite side.
240ApplicationFeature RequestLowMiniMenu shall return into full screen mode (more quick...Unconfirmed
Task Description If you set MiniMenu's option "Live (not exit) on app run?" to YES, and you quit an application and return to the still running MiniMenu, it runs in windowed mode, and takes about 2 seconds until it goes into full screen mode again. This delay should at best be not noticeable at all, at most 0-1 seconds.
242ApplicationFeature RequestMediumPressing SHIFT + any key in sequence creates the modifi...Unconfirmed
Task Description ISSUE ENVIRONMENT: If you hold your Pandora in your hands, you only have your thumbs for typing, hence your typing abilities are quite limited. It is hard to press more than 2 keys, and hard to press 2 keys on the same side, as your second thumb does not reach the opposite side all too easy (except you have a basketball player's hands). The modifier keys Start/ALT Select/CTRL Pandora/(META, I guess?) are in the middle of the keyboard, hence the can easily pressed together with another key. But SHIFT lies at an ergonomically problematic side (left boundary). Hence hard to press with other left side keys. SUGGESTED SOLUTION: I suggest that Pandora OS offers an optional and configurable input help. [1|2|3 presses | hold for duration x] SHIFT [timeout y] [modifier key 2] [timeout z] key Produces the same result like SHIFT + modkey2 + key Very likely modifier key 2 and timeout z are not necessary, as you can trigger the SHIFT hold (by your defined action), and then press the modifier key 2 and the other key at once, as the other modifier keys are laid at a central (ergonomically better) position.
243ApplicationFeature RequestMediumMiniMenu: Pressing successive character keys should com...Unconfirmed
Task Description Imagine this tab content: Nubs, Pandora Input, PNDstore. CURRENT BEHAVIOR: Pressing "P" and "N" is succession jumps to "Nubs" eventually, as it first jumps to the first "P" item ("Pandora Input"), then to the first "N" item, "Nubs". DESIRED BEHAVIOR: That it acts like in most Linux file browsers or the Mac OS X Finder. In detail: Pressing "P" and "N" within a certain time limit should combine them to the string "PN" and jump to the first item which starts with that string, i.e. "PNDStore". If no item matches, reduce the combination string by one character, try to match again, if that doesn't match, try matching again with one character less, ... , until only one character is left, and if that one doesn't match jump to the nearest previous lexicographical character, which matches.
244ApplicationFeature RequestLowInclude man and the manpagesUnconfirmed
Task Description The command line environment of the default OS does not include the command "man" and the respective manpages of the installed programs. I personally often use manpages, as I hardly remember the syntax/arguments of all programs I use. Having them would be very convenient! EVALUATING NEEDED STORAGE AMOUNT Some may argue that storage space is quite limited on the NAND. Yes I agree. Hence the number of included programs is limited too. Hence it would not be all too many manpages. When I press TAB into an empty Terminal prompt, I get 1406 possibilities, which is about the amount of available commands/programs if we ignore aliases, etc. Multiply that with an average of 20 kb per manpage, and you get about 30 MB in total. With compression this could possibly be brought down to 15-20 MB. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS A) Store into the NAND the manpages of core OS CLI programs only, and not all the library/system/etc documentation. B) Include only the man command into the core OS, and compile/configure it in such a fashion, that it finds the manpages within non-NAND media (SD card, USB volume, etc). b1) Specify that it simply looks into a certain path within the /media/*/pandora/ structure. b2) Or offer PND packages like man-core.pnd, man-extended.pnd,... you get the idea or even man-custom.pnd (which would look into its appdata or a certain path for custom added manpages, to somehow get the b1 approach within the PND approach).
250ApplicationFeature RequestMediumFile Browser Thunar - Trashing file crosses filesystem ...Researching
Task Description Trashing a file/folder seems to MOVE it to a certain trash directory on the MAIN VOLUME, rather then the ORIGINATING VOLUME, hence this can result in a COPY RATHER THAN A MOVE operation, if the trashed file originates from a filesystem other than the main filesystem! This is very inefficient and faulty as it is: a) Very time consuming b) And in case of large files this operation can even fail due to not enough free space on the main volume.
253ApplicationFeature RequestMediumSwitch GUI: Intelligent automatic choiceUnconfirmed
Task Description If only 2 GUIs are available, skip the user selection and switch right into the only other GUI. What else would the user want?! Right! If more than 2, already set the focus in the GUI list to the next possible item.
216ApplicationTo Do (Reminder)LowToDo - SD manager tool (backup homedir/restore, prepare...New
Task Description Should make up a simple zenity script tool .. - backup -> pick SD -> backs up current user's homedor to SD. (tar.gz format so permissions can be kept; not cpio/etc, too annoying for user.) -> keep rolling, or just one copy? - restore -> pick SD -> pick user -> confirm -> wipe home and restore with version from tarball? (or just unpack in-place, so existing new files are kept) -> prepare SD -> pick SD -> mkdir /pandora/menu and /pandora/desktop
104Base OSBug ReportLowAAC decoder libfaad doesn't appear to be compiled as fi...Unconfirmed
Task Description FAAD2 appears to not be compiled with fixed point decoding. My version of libfaad compiled with fixed point used 2-3x less cpu than the provided one. It's not enough to provide the switch to the configure script. the file libfaad/common.h has to be edited and a define uncommented. Line 68 in the v2.7 source. /* COMPILE TIME DEFINITIONS */ /* use double precision */ /* #define USE_DOUBLE_PRECISION */ /* use fixed point reals */ //#define FIXED_POINT

Task Description PyGame is damn slow (games with scrolling are not at all playable). Would be nice if Hardware surface could be used :)
124Base OSBug ReportLowifup doesn't like dhclientUnconfirmed
Task Description I added: iface usb0 inet dhcp And ran: ifup usb0 But dhclient simply prints usage.
158Base OSBug ReportMediumRefresh rate and BPPUnconfirmed
Task Description On OS Zaxon (hotfix 3). With "xfconf-query", the resolution is 800x480@60 Hz. But with the tool in the menu "Settings" -> "Display", the resolution is 800x480@0 Hz. With Java (opensdk-6-jre 6b18-1.8), GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getDefaultScreenDevice().getDisplayModes() return 1 display mode that is 800x480@0 Hz with a BPP of -1. It seems to be the reason that GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getDefaultScreenDevice().getDisplayMode() return null and when closing a java application that goes in fullscreen mode to throw an exception (invalid display mode).
159Base OSBug ReportMediumSystem > Run PND Application menu item does nothingUnconfirmed
Task Description With both Hotfix 3 and Hotfix 4 Beta the Run PND Application menu item fails to do anything. Possibly related problem is that PND files newly copied to SD card are not recognized and entered on desktop as expected. When you go to Thunar and right click - execute the PND file, nothing happens. Possible fix by copying the PND to another folder on the SD card with Thunar. This makes at least two PND files I had work. Still no response with "Run PND Application" menu, though.
118Base OSFeature RequestLowadd sdl-perl to the base OSUnconfirmed
Task Description Hi there, Many games depend on sdl-perl. Perl and sdl are part of the base OS, but not not the connection between the two. Cheers, sebt3
123Base OSFeature RequestLowSuggestions for the Pandora-ButtonNew
Task Description My suggestion instead of a full menu, would be to have a tiny overlay over the current running application which allows you to: - relogin (to close all running applications) - quit (stop the active application) - shows the last notifications / toaster messages which you missed while being in a fullscreen app. - possibly even something like plugin support or icons to check out the wifi-strength etc. from fullscreen apps. Implementation wise this could possibly be done using - a topmost window and the same content rendered in screenspace in a GLES hook (which should draw over most applications) or - one of the DSS2 overlays maybe It's definitely something to consider as it was requested on the forums a few times (~"xbox like menu in games").
156Base OSFeature RequestVery LowAsk to format SD CardUnconfirmed
Task Description When I have received my Pandora, I got an SD Card but it was not formated. I didn't have any card reader so I didn't now what was wrong (the Pandora or the SD Card). When an unformated SD Card is inserted in the Pandora, it should be nice to ask if we want to format it.
94CoreBug ReportLowBacklight control by lid sensor not detected after bootNew
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?
110CoreBug ReportVery LowBattery percentage static in MiniMenuUnconfirmed
Task Description Battery remaining percentage in MiniMenu does not update unless you change tabs back and forth. This is only really an issue when leaving the unit charging and not using it. It gives the appearance that it is not charging until you swap tabs around.
138CoreBug ReportLow'del' key (shift+backspace) not workingNew
Task Description The title says everything: The 'del' key does not work. In theory you should have a del "event" when hitting shift+backspace. This is not the case in all progs I tested so far (terminal and default text editor with gui).

Task Description cat >/etc/
155CoreBug ReportMediumCritical problems after rescaling GLES2 X windowsUnconfirmed
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.
178CoreBug ReportLowMount-loop when booting from SD-cardUnconfirmed
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.
179CoreBug ReportLow.vimrc-preset for user but not for rootUnconfirmed
Task Description I am running PandoraOS from sd-card installed with the official tarball "pandora-rootfs.tar.bz2". I noticed that the control/keyboard-mapping in vi does not work correctly after switching to root (for example sudo su-). I solved this by copying over my users .vimrc to root-homedir. This should already be included in the tarball.
185CoreBug ReportLowXorg driver should not be dependant on user environmentUnconfirmed
Task Description The patch implementing screen blanking uses the /usr/pandora/scripts/ script to control LCD backlit:;a=blob;f=recipes/xorg-driver/xf86-video-omapfb/pandora_backlight_dim.patch;h=4a0b8432d083c6e7297192a2920c7a777ae3d098;hb=16f3fff44323bd6b4349d909667b51a2fef3f278 The same result can be achieved by using the sys interface: /sys/devices/platform/twl4030-pwm0-bl/backlight/twl4030-pwm0-bl/bl_power This approach makes driver independent on particular distribution. The proposed patch is attached.
190CoreBug ReportMediumRemoving desktop-shortkeys does not workUnconfirmed
Task Description Try clearing shortcuts in Start->Settings->Window Manager->Keyboard. That doesn't work (for me). This is a problem because these shortcuts are blocking key-combination in apps, like for example the keymapper in dosbox (CTRL+F1) or refreshing content (CTRL+F5). I tried manual editing or even deleting the configuration file, but changes are not recognized and the file recreated on reboot.
204CoreBug ReportMediumfonts issuesUnconfirmed
Task Description Ok, I just want to say that there is something missing about the font on the base image. I cant get what (at least for now) Here is an issue : With my current Ogre build I get : Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font Error: Aborting: no font found I've googled but so far no solution :(
223CoreBug kills gles contextUnconfirmed
Task Description opengles and don't like each other very much. whenever returning from low power to full power mode again, opengles rendering is just dead. the reason for this issue are following 2 lines within 18 echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/omapfb/graphics/fb0/blank ... 66 echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/omapfb/graphics/fb0/blank if these lines are removed/commented, the gles rendering just resumes fine.
225CoreBug ReportMediumads7846 reports odd pressure valuesUnconfirmed
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...
227CoreBug ReportLowDelete button won't delete, and function lock doesn't w...Unconfirmed
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.
229CoreBug ReportHighEnable wake on alarm interrupts Unconfirmed
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???
236CoreBug ReportLowCannot unmount SD-CardUnconfirmed
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).
257CoreBug ReportMediumTV Out script breaks XV/SDL Video playbackUnconfirmed
Task Description This seems to be the case with Hot-fix 5 and 6 alpha 4. I've been able to repeat this bug by re-flashing.. On a fresh re-flash.. installed community codec pack.. Videos will play fine on Panplayer, VLC and Gnome-Mplayer with default settings, which I believe is XV or SDL out in the case of VLC. Run the TV-out script it will cause a blank black screen during playback.. Disabling TV-out, switching modes, rebooting.. battery out, nothing seems to allows it to work with XV/SDL out again.. I know If I switch to X11 it will make it "work" again, but I notice a bit of lag during playback using X11 compared to XV/SDL out.
260CoreBug ReportMediumLow Power Mode: Input (keyboard, nub) still taken. Appl...Unconfirmed
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.
269CoreBug ReportLowThunar Slow ExitUnconfirmed
Task Description Thunar takes a long time going back to minimenu on exit. You don't notice this when in XFCE but then you are always in the GUI not returning to it. This started in Hotfix 6 Alpha4 I believe
270CoreBug ReportVery LowPower-slider & lid-close events: XFCE observes user set...New
Task Description STATUS QUO: If you are in XFCE and hold the power slider for 3 seconds, you thereby trigger the shutdown command. For 3 more seconds a dialogue box gives you the chance to abort the shutdown ("Shutting down in 3…2…"). Now in MiniMenu no direct shutdown key is available. You first have to quit the running app (via PANDORA key), then call up the menu (via SELECT key), and then navigate to "Shutdown" and confirm it (by B or ENTER). INQUIRED BEHAVIOR: 1) Thanks to the very recent MiniMenu speedups, these 4 consecutive user interaction steps can now at least be be executed a lot faster. Nevertheless, offering a 1-button-interaction (via power slider) too, would be nice. Could you please make that available to MiniMenu? And in general: Make this power-slide-event available to any possible GUI, so that not each GUI has to implement this by itself, but rather the OS catches this event and handles it uniformly, except if a certain GUI WANTS to establish an exception to the rule. 2) Also the "Lid-Close-Settings" seem to be ignored by MiniMenu. MiniMenu seems to have the action "Turn off screen" hardcoded to that event. Please make MiniMenu observe the user settings from "Lid-Close-Settings". RELATED SOURCE CODE FILES (to my knowledge):
290CoreBug ReportMediumgnome-mount not availableUnconfirmed
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)..
