Gajim - 2017-04-30


  1. Marzanna Why do I need to downgrade protobuf like described here?: https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim-plugins/wikis/OmemoGajimPlugin
  2. lovetox you dont have to
  3. lovetox only if it does not work with your current protobuf version
  4. lovetox it depends on your distribution and how you installed protobuf, on debian systems i generelly dont have a problem with any protobuf version anymore
  5. Marzanna lovetox, thank you. But does protobuf version affect imagepreview plugin behaviour?
  6. lovetox no image preview is not depending on protobuf
  7. Link Mauve lovetox, is the Help > Features > Network-Watched indicator up to date?
  8. Link Mauve I think you now have another backend, for a network thingy I actually use, but it’s not checked here.
  9. lovetox in gtk2 branch yes, in gtk3 i wait for jo-so to also implement it
  10. lovetox i didnt port it from 2, because i dont want to push it without having the possibility to test it
  11. Link Mauve Have you asked them to do so?
  12. lovetox but i guess we have it in a few days in master branch
  13. lovetox yes i asked him and he agreed to do it
  14. Link Mauve Ok.
  15. lovetox Link Mauve, we import GUPnPIgd from gi.repository
  16. Link Mauve Oh, hmm, then why isn’t it checked in Help > Features?
  17. lovetox the text in features is not ported
  18. lovetox the package mentioned there is wrong
  19. lovetox you need gir1.2-gupnpigd-1.0
  20. Link Mauve I don’t use Debian, this text is always wrong anyway.
  21. lovetox i dont think this can be solved
  22. lovetox with a package name people can at least google and see what it contains in debian
  23. Link Mauve IIRC there was some new global way to solve this issue for all distributions, but I don’t remember what.
  24. Link Mauve Something based on polkit.
  25. bot Philipp Hörist pushed 1 commit to branch _refs/heads/master_ of _gajim_ <https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim>: *d06ba96a* <https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim/commit/d06ba96a89c18f93cd983f06280c50dc5f623cf9> Update dependency in features window gir1.2-gupnpigd-1.0 is the correct python3/GTK3 dependency on Debian
  26. Link Mauve Thanks. :)
  27. lovetox Link Mauve, what is your opinion on importing the xep namespaces from nbxmpp?
  28. lovetox i dont like that, we always have to depend on a higher version only because we updated a string
  29. lovetox a string thats not even used in nbxmpp
  30. lovetox it makes sense with stuff that is implemented in nbxmpp though
  31. lovetox like smacks
  32. Link Mauve lovetox, why would it be an issue?
  33. Link Mauve What makes less sense is to have most of the logic implemented in Gajim instead of in your library.
  34. lovetox thats beside the question
  35. lovetox also what i wondered
  36. lovetox the lib poezio uses
  37. lovetox did anyone use it with gtk?
  38. mathieui nope
  39. lovetox i thought so
  40. lovetox when i looked into it, i saw it uses its own loop and depends on that async io api of python
  41. Link Mauve mathieui, wasn’t there some guy who started a GTK+ client with it?
  42. lovetox maybe i try it out, the thing that i thought about, when i have two main loops then, one gtk one python
  43. Link Mauve lovetox, apparently you can use gbulb to do everything using asyncio.
  44. lovetox Known issues Windows is not supported, sorry.
  45. lovetox the nbxmpp socket usage for windows is actually horibbly bad
  46. lovetox its so damn slow
  47. louiz’ one of the main goals of slixmpp was to use so standard loop where anyone could add their own events, including the gtk loop
  48. louiz’ if it doesn’t work easily, that’s a bug, and we should fix it
  49. lovetox louiz’, if i would start a new xmpp client, i surely would try slixmpp
  50. Link Mauve lovetox, or you could help us and base it on xmpp-rs!
  51. Link Mauve That way, your bugs would be actually caught before the user has to execute the program!
  52. Link Mauve lovetox, btw, you should remove the configurability of the presence priority imo, it would unclutter the interface a lot and make it way more user-friendly.
  53. lovetox where do you mean, you mean that i cannot set a priority anymore?
  54. Link Mauve Yes.
  55. Link Mauve The current recommendation is to avoid this altogether and to use carbons instead.
  56. hermann Can Gajim connect to every XMPP server via http or https? I've seen proxy options, but I'm not sure how to configure this. Is there some help file describing this. I've looked and couldn't find something
