martheh :)07:55
Riddellmotaboy: froud was just wondering how kdebluetooth was coming along07:55
SonerasI see you're discussing the implementation of qt-alternatives to the ubuntu programs. I've a little question about such; did somebody already look into the possibility of a 'personal-' kind of firewall for one of the next releases? I think I've read Ubuntu looks into using firestarter (good one) some time - but i can't find a decent Qt alternative (besides guarddog, which is a more complex solution).07:55
motaboyRiddell: I think that kdebluetooth is ready for release, only that Fred and me doesn't have much time in these days.07:56
froudmotaboy: installed it here and it works a treat, thanks07:56

RiddellSoneras: it's not something I've looked in to.  firewalls arn't high priority for kubuntu 07:57

froudRiddell: http://lnix.net/~froud/kquickguide/C/ch03s07.html07:57
froudI will now add kdebluetooth07:58
Riddellfroud: nice07:58
froudRiddell: the quick guide is a good place to outline a tour of kubuntu desktop and nice to help define what needs more docs in the User Guide07:58
martSoneras: I just tried guarddog yesterday, it's not a tool for a complete newbie, but maybe it would be worth talking to upstream as it's not far off?07:59
froudRiddell: r there any other changes, other than kdebluetooth, that will be in kde-system settings as a part of the stock install07:59
martSoneras: (I mostly liked it, but I see your point)08:00
Riddellfroud: I don't think so except I should look into why it doesn't pick up the theme manager08:00
froudOK I would not know, so if you find problems like tings missing or stuff that will be added it would be good if you could update me08:01
Sonerasmart: I do like guarddog too, but I think the purpose is different from firestarter and the second is more what users might expect - I guess. Just something I've been wondering about today08:01
froudSoneras: good example is SuSE Firewall08:01
froudeasy to use, no fuss, just works08:02
martSoneras: http://www.simonzone.com/software/guarddog/guarddog2_protocol.png08:03
Sonerashave to take a closer look, didn't really use the SuSE Firewall yet. somehow I like the firestarter aproach. but might not be such a big issue for kubuntu yet08:03
martSoneras: I reckon that could be improved by making Zone, Logging and Advanced menu options, leaving user with just enable/disable protocol08:04
martSoneras: most users have only one NIC anyway, so hiding "zone" not an issue, until you want to do something complex08:05
froudRiddell: I will document this log on lnix.net/~froud if it changes, please update me so I can plan it. This way I can direct contributors on what to do and what not08:05
froudSoneras: SuSE Firewall is very simple, just the basics08:05
froudblock all08:05
Sonerasmart: I've guarddog in the background but didn't configure it yet. does it have some kind of an 'agent' that tells the user whats going on / allowing him to accept/block requests on-the-go?08:06
froudopen all08:06
froudif you want to do more you need to stop it and use SuSE Firewall 208:06
martSoneras: ah, clever feature.  no, it doesn't have that.08:07
martSoneras: I think I properly see your point this time :)08:07
Sonerasmart: don't know if you've seen firestarter lately (no I don't want to make an ad here), but this is very close to what I'd consider perfect for kubuntu08:07
Sonerasmart: only it's gtk :(08:08
froudRiddell: does kandy work now08:08

froudanyone got opinions on what Kubuntu User guide should be08:09
froudI dont think we want another KDE User manual, the upstream one is good08:10
froudOf course there are those things kubuntu desktop specific08:10
Sonerasfroud: btw. I wanted to ask some time, if there already is some kind of internationalization of your documentation going on? Maybe it's something I could help out with.08:11
froudSoneras: we upload to Rosetta use kdesdk xmlpo to make pots08:11
Sonerasfroud: I think it should mostly focus on the thinks specific to Kubuntu - like configuration utilities not available in vanilla KDE and such. And then take the other parts from upstream.08:12
froudk, go one08:12
froudgo on08:12
Sonerasfroud: ok, I'd have to sit down and read up on those things first, but maybe I can do some translation / language-specific screenshots (german that would be)08:13
froudgreat, we freeze with ubuntu release schedule08:13
froudand then upload to rosetta08:13

tvoRiddell: I was still wondering though, what's the best behaviour of locate protocol?09:26
tvoRiddell: there are 3 options IMHO:09:26
tvoRiddell: 1) it behaves like it did originally, ie. if a dir contains more than a certain number of hits, than it's displayed as "(%d Hits) %s", %s being the full path09:27
Riddellthat does seem quite nice09:29
=== Riddell wonders what options 2 and 3 are
tvoRiddell: 2) the current behaviour of my local copy, ie. each hit is shown. It is shown as a file if the pattern matches the filename part, shown as a directory if the pattern matches the directory part09:30
tvoheh, it's quite difficult to explain09:30
Riddellwhat happens in 1 if a directory matches?09:31
tvoRiddell: 3) Like 2), but each directory hit is added twice, once like 2) and once as "Search for <pattern> in <directory>"09:31
tvonothing special, it gets counted as a hit in it's parent directory09:32
tvoand if this parent directory contains too many hits (configurable) the parent dircetory is displayed09:32
Riddellif you locate foo and you have a directory with lots of items called foo then it returns results for all those items just because they're in a directory called foo09:34
Riddelldoes that happen with any of the options above?  (seems to me it should just return the directory)09:35
tvothat happens only with 109:35
tvowith 1, if there's a dir foo with N-1 files in it (with N is the max-hits-per-dir-threshold), it shows the list of files09:36
Riddellthat seems silly09:37
tvoif there would be one more file in foo it would have been collapsed into a "(%d Hits) %s" like directory09:37
tvoyeah, that's my opinion too09:37
tvocurrently I have 2 and could go for 309:37
Riddell3 sounds fun but might end up with usability issues09:38
Riddelltvo: do you know Sander Koning askie?09:39
RiddellI believe he's at your uni09:39
Sonerasfroud: still around? I've a small question regarding the docbook format of the docs09:39
tvoactually, I know quite a lot of Sander's, don't know the surnames though:)09:40
tvoso maybe I should check09:40
tvoRiddell: I'm going to fix local-to-a-directory searches now: this would allow 3 (I could make it configurable..)09:44
Riddelltvo: sounds good09:46
Riddelltvo: do you know baz?09:47
tvoRiddell: no, what's it?09:47
Riddelltvo: bazaar, the version of arch made by canonical09:48
Riddell(I don't know it either) but if you did it would work as a short term revision control system09:48
tvoRiddell: of the versioning systems, I've only used CVS.09:49
tvoRiddell: you mean with a local repository?09:49
Riddellyeah, but it probably isn't worth it09:49
RiddellI guess ask the locate author if he has a repository and if not apply for a KDE account09:50
froudSoneras: yep I am here09:50
froudRiddell: think you should find solution to svn :-)09:52
=== tvo is now typing a mail to the locate author
froudSoneras: ping09:57
Sonerasfroud: sorry. back09:59
froudquestion on docbook09:59
Sonerasfroud: I'm wondering about the docbook format. with which app will they be viewed`khelpcenter?09:59
Soneraspassing the docbook to the khelpcentercommand came up with an unformated view09:59
froudno you need to transform it10:00
Sonerasand while editing, do you simply use a text editor?10:00
froudkate will do it10:00
Sonerasso there will be now yelp like docbook viewing in breezy for kde?10:00
Sonerasnow = no10:01
froudSoneras: no kde ships html10:01
froudif you want you can transform the xml on your machine10:01
froudyou need the following; docbook, docbook-xsl, xsltproc10:02
froudthen you should just do a checkout of the directories needed10:02
Sonerasok, did both10:02
froudboth what10:03
Sonerasinstalled the tools you said and did a checkout (did that before)10:03
Sonerashow would I transform into html?10:03
froudoK  but you only did checkout of the core parts10:03
froudyou need10:03
froudand https://docteam.ubuntu.com/repos/trunk/kde10:04
Sonerasah, I see. only got kde10:04
froudok then look at the Makefile in kde/10:05
froudbtw common/ libs/ kde/ must all be in the same dir10:05
froudto build all the docs that will go into kubuntu-docs-0.1ubuntu1-all just do make kall10:06
froudOh do make a folder build/kde relative to those dirs10:06
Sonerasoh, wrong window =)10:07
froudthe make will build the html there10:07
Sonerasshould build/kde in the same folder as kde/libs/common, or one folder above?10:08
froudthose three folder should be relative to each other10:08
froudmkdir build10:08
froudmkdir build/kde10:09
froudthen cd kde10:09
froudmake kall10:09
Sonerasah ok, got it wrong at first10:09
froudlet me  know if it works for you10:10
=== Mez [~mez@cpc2-lich4-3-0-cust115.brhm.cable.ntl.com] has joined #kubuntu-devel
Sonerasfroud: ok, it worked. got some nice html in build/kde. I had to checkout generic as well though.10:22
froudOooh yes, sorry10:23
froudOK that is how you build it to view it10:23
froudto edit it you can use any text editor10:23
froudkate works10:23
froudyou will also need to validate your xml for well-formed and valid10:24
froudcheckout https://docteam.ubuntu.com/repos/trunk/validate.sh10:24
froudto the root of those folders10:24
froudnow you can just do ./validate.sh path/to/foo.xml10:25
froudand it will check that your docbook is valid against the dtd and well-formed10:25
Sonerasok, I'm reading the docs at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DocteamStepByStepRepository as well, so I hope I'll be fine. bause I got to go for today.10:26
Sonerasthanks for the quick help getting me started10:26
froudsure no problems10:26
SonerasI'll be sure to come back with more questions tomorrow ;)10:26
froudhe he no worries10:26
=== Soneras [~chris@p50887B97.dip.t-dialin.net] has left #kubuntu-devel ["Kopete]
froudnight all10:33
Riddelltvo: if you want to use arch/baz I'm told you can set up a local repository, get an account on launchpad then publish to the supermirror10:47
Riddelltvo: it's been suggested that if you want to do something uber-cool you could alter locate to update on inotify events rather than on a daily crunch10:48
tvoRiddell: ok, in that case, I'll wait for the reply of Armin Straub (the kio_locate author), and if he doesn't use a versioning system, I'll teach myself arch/baz10:50
tvoRiddell: I'll add it to my todo list and read a bit about inotify10:51
=== pef_aw is now known as pef

Riddelloh cool, it made it to revu11:05
Riddellwhat's he on about, it has a .desktop file11:06
pefRiddell:  but why " Needs .desktop entry" in the comment ?11:07
=== crimsun [~crimsun@crimsun.silver.supporter.pdpc] has joined #kubuntu-devel
Riddellpef: no idea, the .desktop works for me.  possibly it doesn't work on gnome for some reason or possibly he's just nuts11:30
tvoRiddell: I've created an intial version of a wiki page, in case you're interested: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KubuntuFileSearch11:44
