Task Description That still need to be configurable, but chris_c does a good job I'ld like to see integraded in the main image : and :
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 :(
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.

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").
121Base OSBug ReportMediumPyGame Hardware supportNew
Task Description PyGame is damn slow (games with scrolling are not at all playable). Would be nice if Hardware surface could be used :)
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
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.
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?
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.
