ali1234i seem to have found a bug with wide character support in C programs. against which package should i report it?00:08
penguin42can you describe the bug?00:29
ali1234penguin42: yes. printf("%lc", 0x2701); does not print the unicode character "Upper blade scissors" like it is supposed to :)00:34
ali1234at least my interpretation of man 3 printf leads me to believe that should work00:35
penguin42hmm - that could be broken in so many places!00:35
ali1234it's not my terminal, python outputs utf8 just fine00:35
penguin42if you run that program and pype it through od -tx1   does the hex look correct?00:36
ali1234because it outputs absolutely nothing00:36
ali1234however i wrote my own utf8 encoder, and that outputs the symbol correctly00:36
ali1234see: http://ideone.com/oQoCA00:36
penguin42nothing? That's curious00:36
ali1234yeah that's what #glibc just told me too00:36
penguin42well, printf is in libc, so I'd file it against that00:37
ali1234#glibc figured it out... i need to setlocale(LC_ALL, ""); to get the locale from the environment00:42
penguin42ok, I wonder what it was trying to do without the locale00:44
ali1234without a locale it just bails out as soon as it sees %lc00:48
ali1234so eg printf("-- %lc --", foo); and you'll get "-- " as output00:48
penguin42nice of it to let you know !00:49
ali1234yeah it was a little bit unhelpful00:49
Terminushello. i'm not sure if this is the right channel or not so i'll just go ahead and ask the question. i'm experiencing an issue with vim and sql on lucid but this page says release fixed --> https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/vim/+bug/58479705:36
ubot4`Launchpad bug 584797 in vim (Debian) (and 1 other project) "vim loses left/right cursor keys in insert mode when editing SQL (affects: 4) (heat: 25)" [Unknown,Fix released]05:37
micahgTerminus: it's been fixed in natty05:38
micahg!sru | Terminus05:38
ubot4`Terminus: Stable Release Update information is at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates05:38
micahgTerminus: you have to follow the stable release update procedure if there's a simple patch that can be backported05:38
Terminusmicahg: i see. so i assume it's still in updates-testing?05:39
Terminusor is it a "won't fix" bug? i'm not terribly familiar with the SRU.05:40
micahgTerminus: no, it's in the development release, we generally only backport patches for high impact issues05:41
micahgTerminus: it does seem like an annoying bug, but I'm not on the SRU team, so I'm not sure if it qualifies05:42
micahgTerminus: you could try asking if it's worthwhile in #ubuntu-devel in a couple hours05:43
Terminusmicahg: i see. i thought usability would be in the "high impact" issue category, and as long as there's no regression with other packages, it would be ok.05:47
Terminusmicahg: anyway, thanks!05:47
Terminusbtw, why in a couple of hours? is that the time canonical people report for work? =)05:47
micahgTerminus: well, normally people are around by now, but I don't see them, so I figure give them time to get settled Mon Morning instead of jumping on them first thing :)05:48
Terminusmicahg: hehe. forgot it's monday. thanks again! =)05:50
micahgTerminus: well, almost Tuesday for some folks :), but Monday for most of the people in these channels05:51
Terminusyeah, it's 2pm here. =)05:52
micahgalmost 1AM for me05:52
Terminusmicahg: seriously? are you right next to the date line or something?05:53
micahgTerminus: no, midwest US05:54

patrickmwbdmurray: yes, we tried that15:27
bdmurraypatrickmw: okay, I thought we had only made 1 of the symlinks mentioned there15:30

patrickmwbdmurray: I will try both symlinks now15:31
patrickmwbdmurray: I'm having trouble booting into Unity.  The last time I updated caused Unity not to start properly.  Problem is, the account is set to automatically login, so I don't get the option to select Classic mode15:38
patrickmwI can get into tty, but I'm having trouble finding where gdmsetup sets the automatic login properties15:38
bdmurrayseb128: How can one switch between the classic desktop and unity at a command line prompt?15:41
seb128bdmurray: you can't15:42
seb128where what do you mean? from a running session?15:42
seb128or when starting the session?15:42
bdmurrayseb128: see patrickmw's question above.  Unity isn't working out well for him and he has chosen auto login15:43
seb128edit .dmrc in your user dir15:44
seb128the Session= line15:44
seb128set it to classic-gnome15:44
bdmurrayclassic-gnome or gnome-classic?  mine has gnome-classic15:45
patrickmwseb128, thank you. I've been trying to find that all weekend15:45
seb128patrickmw, otherwise you can edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf to disable autologin15:46
jcastroI always just alt-sysrq-k myself back to gdm15:47
* jcastro 's way is totally hammer15:47
seb128bdmurray: could be gnome-classic, I'm under an unity session now so I can't check15:47
seb128the .desktop is gnome-classic.desktop, the session classic-gnome.session15:48
seb128yeah for consistency15:48

strycoreMarking this as "Won't fix" is wrong in every possible way20:14
strycoreFirst I'm going to check on my Win7 and MacOSX what are their behaviors concerning this20:15
psusistrycore: why?20:39
psusiit isn't a bug20:39
strycoreyes it is20:41
strycorean a quite severe one20:41
strycoreOk, so I've checked Snow Leopard, Win7 and KDE20:42
strycoreGnome is the the worst regarding this issue20:42
psusistrycore: how so?  if the user set it to do that, then it isn't a bug21:03
psusigranted, it is probably a dumb user interface to have the box checked by default, but it isn't a bug that you get what you asked for21:04
strycorepsusi, i'm almost finished commenting on the bug, it's more detailled there21:05
strycorepsusi, software should be forgiving21:05
strycoreyou can't just go "haha you asked for it"21:06
psusistrycore: how do you propose that ( other than changing the default state of the checkbox )21:07
