This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- A lovely copy of
Component Based Software Engineering, nice to see ones name
in print - and lots of other chapters to read, learn and inwardly
digest, now to try and encourage 6bn people to buy it.
- Tried to build
GStreamer, no joy downloading the somewhat huge auxiliary
packages - doh.
- Committed bonobo-config and libgnome changes.
- Onwards with libgnomeui, seemingly this is not building
with the latest Gtk+, chunks of API been renamed / removed - great,
helper apps renamed too.
- Found a nasty bug in the canvas / gnome-print, assuming
realloc didn't move memory, hit a pango issue instead.
- Owen pointed me at the best pangoft2 setup docs
in gtk+/docs/README.linux-fb, managed to get a semi-working (
not complaining ) pangoft2 setup on a stock RH 7.1 system with:
FontPath = /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1:/usr/share/fonts/default/ghostscript
AliasFile = /opt/ngnome2/etc/pango/pango/pangoft2.aliases
sans normal normal normal normal "urw gothic l"
serif normal normal normal normal "urw palladio l"
monospace normal normal normal normal "nimbus mono l"
- Phone call with Bill ( working on Atk+ with Sun ), having
issues with getting ORBit to play ball with him.
- Read the
Desktop entries spec, a strange place to store mime information if ever I saw one.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
