cjwatsonevand: hmm, I tried the new zoommap changes out00:09
cjwatsonevand: the problem I have now is that, when you try to move the mouse towards your home region, it tends to zoom to the edge of the map where you entered, typically some polar or ocean region00:10
cjwatsonevand: I don't recognise polar regions very well, and the effect of this is that I suddenly have no idea where I am00:11
cjwatsonevand: so I'm not sure this has helped, unfortunately :-(00:11
cjwatsonevand: I wonder if a delay before zooming would help? Or maybe just go back to requiring a click before zooming?00:11
cjwatsonhuh, actually it seems to zoom to the top-left edge, or maybe the last place you zoomed to, or something; very oddd00:12
cjwatsonanother problem is that the edges are small enough that it's easy to exit the zoom area by mistake, which I can then understand would require the zoom area to return to the last place you zoomed to01:06
cjwatsonOK, I think this bit is uncontroversial01:22
CIA-19ubiquity: cjwatson * r2654 ubiquity/ (debian/changelog ubiquity/zoommap.py): * Allow diagonal scrolling in timezone map.01:22
cjwatsonevand: the rest of what I've been playing with is http://paste.ubuntu.com/6948/01:23
cjwatsonevand: it stops it from instantly zooming in, and instead waits half a second, which seems to make it a bit easier to get to about the right area of the map before it zooms01:24
cjwatsonevand: it also arranges for the zoomed position to be where you were on entry (or wherever you got the mouse to before the timeout fired)01:25
cjwatsonevand: I widened the hover-to-move areas to 50, which felt a bit less fiddly to me, especially given that it now loses your zoom position when you move the mouse out of the map (the main downside of this change)01:25
cjwatsonevand: but I left the step size at 20, since 50 was far too jumpy01:26
cjwatsonevand: this feels better to me, but I haven't compared it with either the old map or the old-old map; please try it out?01:26
cjwatson(obviously this is on top of r2654 above)01:28
cjwatsonevand: actually, the other thing that would make it a lot better would be if it only zoomed in by a factor of two; as it is, it zooms in such that the displayed image is exactly the size of the source image, which comes out as around 3x zoom, which is too far01:45
cr3cjwatson: man, you're there at a late hour. might you be up for a quick installer question :)01:46
cjwatsonno, sorry01:47
cjwatsonI need to focus on this so that I can get to bed01:47
cjwatsonfeel free to e-mail me though01:47
cr3cjwatson: sure thing01:48
cjwatsonevand: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6953/ is what I have now. I adjusted the zoom (4.5x seems OK, though probably not quite perfect; to me, zooming out by much makes the points too close together, while zooming in too much makes it hard to see context)02:35
cjwatsonevand: and I changed the hotspot selection to find the closest hotspot if there are several nearby, which allows vastly increasing the hotspot size, which makes it much easier to land on points if your coordination isn't perfect (this fixes a regression relative to the old map implementation, IMO)02:37
cjwatsonevand: (actually, hotspot sizes are pretty much unnecessary with that, but never mind)02:37

evandhi xivulon, reading through your email14:17
xivulonI see cjwatson already took care of 4, thanks!!!14:17
xivulon3 is the only point that might be worth discussing14:19

evandok, do these still require the new nsis?14:21
xivulonI used the new nsis in wubi-installer.org build14:21
xivulonas usual I cannot guarantee the fixes are enough, to avoid segfaults, but should be an improvement14:22
evandhow many reports of it (new nsis and your code changes) fixing the problem did you get?  Just the one on Ubuntuforums, or were there others?14:22
xivulonbut no reports of segfaults so far14:22
xivulonon 2000+ downloads14:22
xivulontest it first on XP since I only tested on vista14:23
xivulonI'd like some feedback from bdmurray too14:24
xivulonwhen he is up14:24
evandI'll test it myself once I'm done with the tzmap stuff, but provided that goes OK, I'm happy seeing it merged and a new version uploaded to rookery.  I imagine we should let slangasek know whats up though.14:24
evandBut he's on PST, so it will be a few more hours.14:24
xivulonrev 486 has a fix on rev 483 so whatever happens that should be in14:25
xivulonfeel free to merge the 2 branches14:25
xivulonon the website I have 487 but did not push the code, that basically uses early_command to add "set -x" to autopartition-loop14:26
xivulonto help debugging point #114:26
xivulonthat is why did not upload the code14:26
evandcjwatson: if you'd like to have that call, I believe I am prepared for it now.  Please call my VOIP extension though, as it wont be until wednesday until my replacement phone is working.14:49
CIA-19debian-installer: cjwatson * r910 ubuntu/ (33 files in 2 dirs): * Update help text translations from Launchpad.14:51

ubotuLaunchpad bug 215347 in ubiquity "freeze exception: clear_partitions warning." [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/21534714:51
evandcjwatson: your changes to the tzmap widget had not occurred to me when I was fixing it but are nevertheless fantastic.14:53
xivulonevand when you test wubi, can you please uninstall selecting "backup iso" and check that the iso ends up in ubuntu-backup (217126)?15:09
TheMusoevand: I tried changing ubiquity code to run all bits as root, i.e the window manager, gnome-settings daemon, jat-spi-registryd, orca etc, and orca still zombified. Hell I even tried putting in code to kill pulseaudio, and while that worked, orca still acted the same.15:18
TheMusoevand: I'm wondering whether moving the accessibility code to be earlier than say the window manager will work? I'll try that tomorrow in any case.15:18
evandTheMuso: I'll try to work through it tonight.  I believe today is my last day to do my taxes, so I have to take care of that after my core hours, but hopefully it wont take too long and I can give the code a look.15:21
evand(assuming of course that I don't find the time this afternoon)15:21
TheMusoevand: No worries, as I said I'll have another dig.15:26

mario_limonciellthanks :)17:56
evandugh, FTTP cannot come soon enough.  Comcast is terribly slow today.17:57

mario_limonciellevand, based upon the number of fixes going into ubiquity trunk, are you planning one more ubiquity release pre-rc?  If so, were you planning it against trunk, or a temporary RC fork?22:43
