Re: Replacing Workbench ComboBox

Yes it will be done (partially) this way in the future but i do not see this as something that will make Combo Box obsolete it can only improve/complement it if done right or it could introduce additional frustration. I did experience something like that in the past with other software. For example ...

Re: Exception handling

In the MS/Windows development style the developer/company has the responsibility/freedom to compile and package all components and deliver them to the user. In the GNU/Linux, and especially in the Debian ecosystem each software is really part of an ecosystem that all developers/community are respon...

Re: Replacing Workbench ComboBox

The plan was to offer this all along it just took them some time to get it right. http://blog.3v1n0.net/informatica/linux/ubuntu-introducing-locally-integrated-menus-to-unity-7/ Therefore i do not agree it was demand driven decision to bring LIM back because it was intended from the beginning for LI...

Re: PPA failure

And what is the strategy for future PPA builds? Something like:

Code: Select all

CFLAGS = -Wall -g -O3

#ifneq (,$(findstring noopt,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS)))
#   CFLAGS += -O0
#else
#   CFLAGS += -O2
#endif

Re: PPA failure

Hm if we explain why we need it, I think they might agree to give us more space, no? It's good for ubuntu after all :) It does not hurt to ask and in the end it makes sense to have OCE on daily PPA. About separate OCE PPA well because for FreeCAD purposes OCE build will be maintained anyway i guess...

Re: FCGear: a gear generator using Bezier curves

I have been fighting Windows bugs for most of December, and wow, I've seen the dark side of Windows development with regards to working outside Microsoft's preferred tool set. sorry triplus, this is a different case, Thomas from OpenShot refers to developping in Windows with MinGW, not with VS. Jür...

Re: PPA failure

Well we could ask politely for more disk space and that would be ideal solution if approved? https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/173276 https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/165877 https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/186640 https://answers.launchpad.net/launch...

Re: PPA failure

If size would not be an issue it might make sense to use single daily PPA with OCE included but maybe in the future some other package will be available on Daily PPA or stable PPA will be based on latest OCE and it could complicate things i do not know... In the end it might make the most sense to u...

Re: PPA failure

Well, it worked. I built a deb package, uninstalled FreeCAD along with all python-pyside-* packages, and installed the deb package using GDebi - it forced the installation of python-pyside. I'm again in your debt, and piling up quite a tab... ;) Great. You're sure about it being standard procedure?...
