ryeyes, test_dash.py file is broken, there is a tab before the docstring10:53
sil2100Good catch10:55
sil2100Let's fix that ASAP10:56
JohnLeajussi; this is a weird corner case.  The keyboard navigation in the Dash is completely spacial, and only one element can be focused at a time.  The search box is always the focused element while you type.  If you then press the down arrow, the next element below the search box is highlighted, and this is frequently the Category Header.  That is the standard rules.  The "pressing enter to action the first search result" is a handy sho10:57
JohnLeartcut, but it doesn't fit into the "Dash is completely spacial, element most recently interacted with has focus" framework.  However it is a handy shortcut so we have it in, but it breaks the rules10:57
JohnLeapopey ^10:57
jussiJohnLea: I understand your point, but it doesnt have to be focused, just highlighted, no?10:59
JohnLeajussi; at the moment 'highlighted = focused', this would be swapping one broken rule for another, and 'highlighted = focused' is an important rule.  Also if we were to do this what would happen if a use presses the down cursor arrow after typing a search term?  Instead of the item directly below the search box being focused, the focus would jump to the item below the highlighted 1st search result which would also be very weird.11:02
JohnLeaThis would then break the spacial navigation11:02
jussiJohnLea: again, fair points. the way I would have expected it to be is there are 2 levels of highlight. 1 may just be a single line around the box, and then the other a full highlight, so there would be a "highlighted, but not focused" annd a highlighted and focused. I _think_ this behaviour is similar in nautilus, although I am currently on KDE at this second (my wife is using my UNity machine). It is the way how Dolphin in KDE works though11:06
jussi(Dolphin uses an underline)11:07
jussisee this image for an example: http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/17uuilz9as6u1jpg/original.jpg11:08
=== mmrazik is now known as mmrazik|lunch
JohnLeajussi; Nautilus has loads of different states:  mouse over, keyboard highlighted, keyboard highlighted and focused, keyboard highlighted and mouseover, keyboard highlighted and focused and mouseover, and also has even weirder things like two different search boxes (if you type something while a file/folder is focused a search box pops up at the bottom of the window, if you press search you get a search box at the top of the window).11:12
JohnLea Also If the search box at the top of the window is focused, you can shift the focus to the last focused and currently highlighted item in the Nautilus window by pressing the down arrow, but you cannot return the focus to the search box by pressing the up arrow.11:12
JohnLeajussi; all in all very complex - we have managed to simplify the a lot which is a very good thing, but the cost so far is this one corner case where we have broken one rule11:13
jussiJohnLea: sure, but I don't think that invalidates the 2 state item I mentioned earlier?11:13
JohnLeajussi; two states is still adding a bunch of complexity, and in the Nautilus implementation of this you have the issue that when the user presses the down arrow the focus jumps to the highlighted item, not the item immediately below the search box.  And it adds a bunch of complexity, reducing everything to a single 'highlighted = focused' rule makes everything easier.  If there were two cases where we were breaking the rule we might11:19
JohnLeaneed to think about changing it, but I think one corner case that breaks it is an acceptable compromise for the reduction in complexity.11:19

sil2100luv: excellent, thanks! I linked it against your bug15:19
sil2100luv: it would be best if someone running raring could take your patch, build and test if it works - does it apply cleanly to lp:unity trunk?15:20
luvnah, it wont apply cleanly15:21
luvI am a bit afraid of pulling latest trunk and then installing and eventually reverting my workstation back to 5.0. How I wrote the patch was that I got the debian srcpkg with apt-src install, did my changes and then installed with dpkg-buildpackage and sudo dpkg -i , well a bit awkward but the big advantage is that everything gets installed and set up exactly the same way it does when installing the official unity package, and it's agn15:41

JohnLeaTrevinho; well I would have preferred something more along the lines of Windows 7 which is more graphical, but someone has done this so we have the opportunity of getting it for free.16:14
sil2100mterry: the quicklist failure causes a few tests to fail, since something seems sometimes broken in unity and it cannot detact that a quicklist is open - so it doesn't clean up properly, and the opened quicklist stays and breaks all following tests until it finally gets closed by accident16:15
TrevinhoJohnLea: yeah, mee too. But as first thing16:15
TrevinhoJohnLea: on the other side, we should avoid to have the quicklist too much crowded...16:16
sil2100mterry: and the ibus thing well, it's broken since quite a long time, since we want to make the tests 'better' - but ibus python support seems strangely broken, so it takes time to poke upstream about that16:16
