IDCategoryTask TypeSeverity  descSummaryStatusProgress
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.
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).
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.

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).
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.
124Base OSBug ReportLowifup doesn't like dhclientUnconfirmed
Task Description I added: iface usb0 inet dhcp And ran: ifup usb0 But dhclient simply prints usage.
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").
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
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
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?
12CoreTo Do (Reminder)Lowfile association for .pndNew
Task Description Build the xml file and defaults.list so that pnd_run is file-assocated to .pnd
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):
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.
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.
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.
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.
65CoreFeature RequestVery Low.desktop files, be nice if they included the non-englis...New
Task Description .desktop files only include the English stuff right now (using the .desktop default tags.) Be nice if in addition to 'title', we also include 'title[de]' type extras, whatever is in the PXML.xml pnd_pxml_t includes all the goods, but pnd_disco_t has only the summarized english stuff.
