Chipacapopey: you still there?00:51
Chipacapopey: the wording is funny, but you should be able to revert it easily00:51
Chipacapopey: not sure what you meant by that however00:51
popeyChipaca: i pressed the enable button and it disappeared00:56
popeyso i didnt see a button that would let me revert00:56
popeywhich made me panic00:56
Chipacapopey: the wording is wrong, we're working on that. The placement was wrong, but has been fixed (if you're on the nightlies), so now it only appears on places that make sense. Still in more places than some people will want, however.00:57
Chipacapopey: what it does is sync that folder with u100:57
popeyyes, i understand that00:57
popeybut what if i dont use u1?00:57
Chipacapopey: so once it's synced you should get a 'disable' button, which would stop syncing. In the middle, it might be broken right now00:57
popeybut it will never complete a sync in my case00:58
popeythe folder i clicked 'enable' on is 3.5GB00:58
popey(i am on the 2G plan)00:58
Chipacathere's *another* bug about warning you about that situation :)00:58
popeygood good00:58
Chipacawe can't do much more than warn you right now00:59
popeyI'll do some more testing and follow up with bugs00:59
popeythanks for letting me know the situation00:59
Chipacayou can check in the case mapper to see how it's supposed to work00:59
Chipacathe case mapper stuff isn't set in stone, but it's pretty darn close :)00:59
popeywill the u1 bar always be there, even for people who dont use u1?01:01
Chipacapopey: define "don't use". Probably, yes.01:01
popeyhaven't signed up to it01:01
popeyugh, thats a bit.. spammy01:02
Chipacapopey: yes, it'll be there01:02
Chipacapopey: yes, it is01:02
popeythats gonna get us some negative press IMO01:02
ChipacaI'd love a well thought out bug report in that direction01:02
popeyI am trying to envisage any similar situation on other platforms. All I can think of is things like MSN messenger nagging you to join up01:03
popeyi realise there are value add features on the mac for example that require a mobile me account01:04
popeybut I'm pretty sure none of them are that in your face01:04
popeyhmm, will have to think more on this.01:04
Chipacano, thank you!01:05

mkarnickiCardinalFang: ping15:35
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: ping15:36
CardinalFang_mkarnicki, hi15:37
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: hi! got few minutes for me for Android related chat :) ?15:37
CardinalFang_mkarnicki, sure.15:37
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: few apps is more then me ;) hehe15:39
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: have you written a Service on Android?15:39
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: I started the implementation (remote process), though I'm not sure what would be the best choice15:39
CardinalFang_mkarnicki, yes.15:39
mkarnickiremote process with AIDL IPC, or a local binded process15:39
mkarnickiU1Service could, potentially, be used later by 3rd party apps, if15:40
mkarnickiI would start playing with couchDB, but for know AndroidU1 would be the only app15:40
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: since connecting + authenticating is costly (in time and memory), plus15:40
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: the user will have an option to leave the process in the background for real sync15:41
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: do you think that I'm complicating my life, or remote service with IPC interface is a good idea?15:41
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: U1 has it's Java client written by verterok, it uses concept of Deferred(s), scheduling task that will execute sooner or later. they are async, so that's their point.15:42
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: Android has AsyncTasks, which are cool for blocking operations, but I can't use them, as Deferreds run on their own thread (sic!) :(15:43
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: ok I think 2 simultaenous questions is enough for now.. ;)15:43
CardinalFang_mkarnicki, I'm working on the first answer!15:43
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: cool :)15:43
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: I've reserached it pretty well, so you can ask me Service related questions15:44
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: (local binded service runs in the same .apk process [as Activities, etc]; remote process runs on it's own, so that other applications can communicate with it through inter-process communication interface, with which they bind to the service whenever they e.g. need to schedule a download, upload, sync, whatever)15:45
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: however, I think I have checked that local binded service got killed when I left the main Activity.. I'm pretty sure that was the case. and we don't want to interrupt the service (unless the user does it him/herself by killing it with a task manager or what not)15:47
CardinalFang_mkarnicki, yes, you want a Service + AIDL, if you want synch to continue outside an Activity.  If the user switches away, then they system is likely to kill any local threads in the activity.  AIDL+RPC is not hugely expensive, but you should not make unnecessary in-out or out parameters.15:54
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: good :)15:55
mkarnickiyes, that's what we want, I'm pretty sure.15:55
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: the user will have choice to not sync in background, but if he want is, the service will run uninterruptedly15:56
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: good to hear it from an Android-aware person. I really struggled on which version to choose15:57
CardinalFang_mkarnicki, right, I think it should still be in a service, but the service can kill itself if the user wants when it's not used.15:57
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: exactly15:57
CardinalFang_Let the activity ask for some binding to start it up, and when work is finished, shut down.15:57
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: so I'll move the U1Client into the SErvice15:57
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: that's delicate. as long as the user doesn't sync every folder he wants to browse (which would be expensive in cost of battery life-time and possibly $ if not on WIFI)15:58
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: then we have to keep the service alive to let the user browse the cloud15:58
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: every tap on a folder creates that folder on the device and caches it's content (meta data, not the file contents themselves)15:59
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: so the service should run at least as long as the activity is in the foreground15:59
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: if it's in the backgroud (and it's not performing sync), then it can shutdown, but it will have to reconnect when the Activity resumes16:00
CardinalFang_mkarnicki, right, but expect many reconnects anyway.  phone connectivity sucks.16:01
CardinalFang_or, if you mean reconnect to the service, yes.16:01
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: true, it may be the case16:01
mkarnickiCardinalFang_: nono, I meant to the server. connect + auth16:01
mkarnicki"cold" connect takes up to 5-7 seconds16:01
mkarnickiwhen you connect second or third time, it's somewhat faster16:02
CardinalFang_That seems long.16:02
mkarnickilet me verify (note: on HSDPA)16:02
CardinalFang_Is it expensive on the phone end, or data latency, or server?16:02
mkarnickicrap.. I can't check right now, I'm during development. umm, it's authentication16:03
mkarnickiI'm not sure what takes so long, but I see small allocations and GC kicking in16:03
mkarnickiwhen U1Client performs .authenticate()16:03

=== jumpa is now known as JUMPA
mkarnickiCardinalFang: operation of going into a folder (by tapping it on the list) also needs communication with the client (thus service), even if the content was cached it should be refreshed. on that end, isn't it an overkill to communicate with a service for a simple "hey, fetch that folder and update me ASAP!"? that's why I had doubts about the service (though I knew it had other advantages)16:24
mkarnickiCardinalFang: please tell me what you think. that IPC shouldn't be a terribly visible overhead, right?16:25
CardinalFangmkarnicki, I wouldn't block on it.  Display what you have from before, and ask service for updates, and when the service returns info, use the new info to update the view again.16:28
mkarnickiok, but if the directory hasn't been cached before, shouldn't I pop a "loading" dialog? just a toast?16:28
mkarnickiCardinalFang: ^16:29
mkarnickiCardinalFang: but what you wrote is almost right - *if* I have it cached, I display, ask service for update - Service updates ContentProvicer, ContentProvider updates the ListView16:30
CardinalFangmkarnicki, not toast, probably.  A special line with update spinner in it.16:31
mkarnickiCardinalFang: ahaaaa!! right!16:31
mkarnickiCardinalFang: the indeterminate spinner at the top right16:31
mkarnickiI forgot about that, though I have it in the code already xD16:32
mkarnickiCardinalFang: great, thanks for hints :)16:32
CardinalFangmkarnicki, hrm, can one update the provider in another process and see the results in this process?  I didn't think so, but I may be nuts.16:32
mkarnickiCardinalFang: if you call on... what was it..16:32
mkarnickionDataChage... umm.. something like that. then the ContentProvider will update the cursors, if they have registered obervers on their uri's16:33
mkarnickilet me check what was it16:33

lordbahI'm trying out the music store. I can see via web browser songs are in my cloud now. But I have no ~/.ubuntuone directory on my system, which is apparently where they are supposed to sync to.23:22
beunolordbah, they sync to ~.local/share/ubuntuone/Purchased\ from\ Ubuntu\ One23:23
beunoyou should see them in rhythmbox23:23
lordbahI have .local/share/ubuntuone, but within that there is not a Purchased* directory. Only shares and syncdaemon.23:24

lordbahSo something in the setup forgot to mkdir this folder?23:28
verteroklordbah: I don't think so, I think the folder is created by the music store plugin23:28
verteroklordbah: execute this: dbus-send --session --print-reply  --dest=com.ubuntuone.SyncDaemon --type=method_call /folders com.ubuntuone.SyncDaemon.Folders.refresh_volumes23:30

lordbahWORKING_ON_BOTH and a dozen lines of just the word "Query".23:32
verteroklordbah: ok, the client started to work on the sync23:33

verteroklordbah: ok, that's good! :)23:34
lordbahThe banshee plugin now shows useful stuff under My Downloads as well (download progress rather than just "Queued" as it had before).23:35
lordbahShould we do something to get that dbus-send command into a FAQ or something?23:36
verteroklordbah: it's u1sdtool --refresh-volumes23:37
verteroklordbah: I think it's available in the ubuntuone-client @ lucid-updates23:37
verterokand via the ppa23:37
lordbaherr, what is available there?23:38
verteroklordbah: the dbus-send command, is bundled into u1sdtool as the --refresh-volumes option23:38
verteroklordbah: u1sdtool is part of th ubuntuone-client package23:38
lordbahOkay, but nothing I found in a FAQ caused me to run it.23:38
lordbahThus I had to come here and bother you good people.23:39
verteroklordbah: ideally you shouldn't need to run the command, but sure it can be added to the FAQ23:39
verteroklordbah: eventually the server would notify the client about the Purchased folder and it will start downloading23:40
verterokbut it seems that the server is under load (just guessing)23:40
lordbahMaybe. This morning I was browsing and added stuff to the basket and went to checkout and it got stuck "Connecting to music store...". 8 hours later it was stuck in the same place. Had to kill banshee since there was no reload button or anything similar. Have to say, amazon has never done that to me. Started back up, and my basket was empty - amazon has never done that to me either. So maybe it is overloaded.23:42
