Midori Development PPA

[En] Launchpad provide recipes so let’s use them. Midori development PPA is here !

No need to wait for the next stable version to test the ongoing development.

As usual, to add this repo on Ubuntu :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:midori/midori-dev

Like the Stable PPA it’s built with the Webkit PPA.


[Fr] Launchpad nous permettant la création de «recipes», pourquoi se gêner ? Voici donc le PPA de développement Midori !

Plus besoin d’attendre ou de compiler pour profiter des derniers développements.

Comme d’habitude, pour ajouter ce dépôt sur Ubuntu :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:midori/midori-dev

Tout comme le PPA stable il utilise le PPA Webkit.

V4l-utils/Libv4l Development PPA

[fr] Tout nouveau tout chaud, voici le PPA de la version de développement de libv4l.
v4l-utils Development PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libv4l/development

Créé grâce au service recipe de launchpad, il permet d’avoir la dernière version de développement de la bibliothèque libv4l (et donc ainsi la dernière liste des webcams de portables à l’envers).

[en] Brand new, libv4l development PPA.
v4l-utils Development PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libv4l/development

Created with recipe from launchpad, it gives you the latest developement version of the libv4l library (and so the latest list of upside-down webcams for notebooks).

Gspca Snapshot

[Fr] Jean-François Moine nous offre maintenant sur son site des «snapshots» du driver gspca v2, ce qui rend encore plus facile l’obtention de la dernière version.

Pour ce faire, avec Debian/Ubuntu, il nous faut les paquets build-essential et linux-headers.

sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-headers

Ensuite direction Jef Moine sur Free.fr et récupération de la dernière archive :

Snapshot Gspca

Snapshot Gspca

Décompression, un make puis un sudo make install plus tard vous aurez la dernière version 🙂

[En] Jean-François Moine is now offering on his site «snapshots» of the gspca v2 drivers.

To build them on Debian/Ubuntu you need build-essential and linux-headers packages.

sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-headers

Then go to Jef Moine on Free.fr and get the latest archive or check below the download link.

Uncompress, make then sudo make install and that’s it 🙂

gspca-2.15.18

Changelog :

VERSION=2.15.x

#18: gspca – sonixj: Adjust the brightness for sensor mi0360b
# The images could not be bright enough under low light.
# gspca – ov534/ov534_9: Fix sccd_read/write errors
# The ov534 bridge is too slow to handle the sensor accesses
# requested by fast hosts. A small delay fixes the problem.
# gspca – sn9c2x: Change the default values of blue and red
# The default values of blue and red (40) were too high for the
# green values (32).
# Also, as these controls are sensitive, their ranges have been
# reduced to 16..48.
# gspca – sn9c2x: Have a bigger luminosity in autoexposure
# Without this change, the images remain too dark.

#17: gspca – sonixj: Fix a zero divide in isoc interrupt
# In case of short marker, the number of received packets was not
# incremented doing a zero divide when computing the filling rate.

#0: zc3xx: fix crash due to reg08 overflow

# 2.14.x

#8: alignment with git

#7: gspca – zc3xx: Initialize the registers reg07 and 08
# These registers were not initialized at start time for some sensors.
# gspca – zc3xx: Adjust the JPEG decompression tables
# As the bridge register 08 defines the JPEG compression quality,
# it must be changed on JPEG quality change and also, the decompression
# tables must be adjusted when the register varies.

#6: gspca – main: Fix bad computation of the available bandwidth
# The bandwidth must be divided by the frame interval ‘bInterval’.
# Reported-by: Hans de Goede

# gspca – zc3xx: add test control of the registers 07 and 08

#4: gspca – sonixj: Change color control for sensor po2030n
# Adjustment of the colors by the po2030n is finer than by bridge controls.
# gspca – sonixj: Add exposure, gain and auto exposure for po2030n
# The auto gain uses the knee algorithm.
# Adding the setexposure control function forced to:
# – rename of the previous function setexposure
# – add a specific auto setting function

#3: gspca – zc3xx: mode inversion of some values for zc0305/gc0303

#2: gspca – sonixj: Bad sensor mode at start time.
# The ‘open-drain’ mode was not reset when starting the webcam
# so that the webcams could be not correctly initialized.
# This problem was introduced by commit 0e4d413af1a9d.
# gspca – zc3xx: Bad initialization of zc305/gc0303.

# gspca – main: Fix the isochronous transfer interval.
# For USB speeds different of ‘low’, the bInterval value is logarithmic.
# gspca – main: Handle the xHCI error on usb_set_interface()
# This patch is adapted from a patch from Sarah Sharp (2010/05/03).
# The xHCD handler checks the USB bandwidth on usb_set_interface()
# instead of on usb_submit_urb().
# Now, the same treatment is applied in case of error of both functions.

# gspca – main: Better values for V4L2_FMT_FLAG_COMPRESSED
# In vidioc_enum_fmt_vid_cap, the ‘compressed’ flag was set from the
# pixelformat, and all pixelformats were not treated.
# Now, images are said as compressed when the image size is smaller than
# its number of pixels.
# gspca – benq: Remove useless function sd_isoc_init
# The sd_isoc_init() did only a set interface which is done in gspca main.
# gspca – main: Use a better altsetting for image transfer
# Previously image transfer used to use the highest altsetting, which, most of
# the time, took the whole USB bandwidth.
# Now, the altsetting is chosen according to an estimation of the bandwidth
# needed for image transfer.

#1: gspca – ov519: change again the ovfx2 bulk transfer size
# Use 7 * 4096 as bulk transfer size for 800×600 only.
# gspca – kinect: add its generation in build/Makefile
# gspca – stv06xx: Set a lower default value of gain for hdcs sensors

# I set back the value which was found in the original qc-usb driver (50).
# gspca – sonixj: fix about the auto JPEG quality
# gspca – stv06xx: Remove useless debug messages.
# This subdriver displayed information already displayed by the gspca main

# gspca – zc3xx: Don’t probe the sensor hv7131r at start time
# gspca – zc3xx: Set the exposure of hv7131r at start time
# gspca – main: Set a correct interval for input polling
# The interrupt intervals of USB2.0 and USB3.0 are logarithmic.
# gspca – main: Limit the input polling interval
# The input polling does not need to be very precise.
# Restricting to 4 or 5 times per second seems enough.
# gspca – ov519: Fix a regression for ovfx2 webcams
# By git commit c42cedbb658b, the bulk transfer size was changed to a lower
# value for a resolution != 1600×1200, but the image extraction routine
# still worked with the previous value, giving bad truncated images.
# gspca – ov519: Change the ovfx2 bulk transfer size
# The ‘normal’ bulk transfer size did not work for 800×600.
# By git commit c42cedbb658b, this ‘normal’ size was used for 1600×1200 only.
# It will now used for resolution greater than 800×600.

En vrac

Après quelques bêtises en provenance de posterous, il est peut-être temps de parler de logiciels 🙂

Donc voici, en vrac, quelques informations :

La version 0.2.0 de Parole media player est sortie le 5 Janvier. Ubuntu PPA

Vala est sorti en version 0.7.9 le 19 Décembre dernier. Ubuntu PPA

Yorba en a profité pour sortir la version 0.4.2 de Shotwell le 4 Janvier. Ubuntu PPA

WebKitGtk est passé en version 1.1.18 le 5 janvier. Ubuntu PPA
La mise à jour n’ a pas été sans mal et j’ai réussi à tout casser en étant obligé de «downgrader» libsoup pour pouvoir installer cette nouvelle version. C’est d’ailleurs la raison pour laquelle la 1.1.18 est disponible pour Karmic mais pas pour Lucid 😛

Côté microblogging un nouveau client Statut.net/Twitter codé en C est apparu : Get2gnow (c’est encore en phase alpha, paquets Ubuntu). Un autre client écrit en Vala mais actuellement uniquement pour Twitter, Pino-twitter, est disponible en version 0.1.2; il permet néanmoins après quelques petites modifications d’utiliser identi.ca.

Sur le Web les choses bougent aussi et l’un des plus grands concurrents de Google vient de sortir la forge libre CodingTeam en version 0.9.2

Xfce Weather and/et weather.com

Xfce Weather Plugin

Xfce Weather Plugin

[en] Since July 2009 Weather.com changed his platform and xfce-weather-plugin need version 0.6.3 to work. The version is still 0.6.2 in Jaunty.
To watch the wonderful weather we have now in Paris I just uploaded version 0.6.4 of the package in my PPA.

xfce4-weather-plugin_0.6.4-1 for amd64
xfce4-weather-plugin_0.6.4-1 for i386
xfce4-weather-plugin_0.6.4-1 for lpia

[fr] Depuis Juillet 2009 Weather.com a changé sa plateforme d’accès et le greffon xfce-weather-plugin nécessite la version 0.6.3 pour fonctionner. Nous avons toujours la 0.6.2 dans Jaunty.
Pour surveiller le magnifique beau temps que nous avons actuellement sur Paris, j’ai téléversé la version 0.6.4 du paquet dans mon PPA.

xfce4-weather-plugin_0.6.4-1 pour amd64
xfce4-weather-plugin_0.6.4-1 pour i386
xfce4-weather-plugin_0.6.4-1 pour lpia

Chromium : un navigateur ou une distribution ?

Je ne parlerai pas ici de l’annonce par Google de son futur Chrome OS, mais bien du navigateur Chromium.

Fabien Tassin a créé un dépôt PPA Chromium Daily Builds.
En regardant le paquet je me suis aperçu que le code source original (compressé en tar.gz) faisait 114 Mo !

Pour remettre les choses en perspectives, le code source de firefox 3.5 trouvé dans les dépôts du même Fabien fait 42 Mo.
La dernière version de WebkitGtk faisant 6 Mo et Midori 0.1.7 640 Ko.

Je me demande vraiment ce qu’ils livrent avec leur navigateur. Pour seulement 98,58 Mo vous pouvez télécharger une distribution Linux complète : Toutou Linux 😛

Gdm : Human Jaunty List

gdm-jaunty-human.list

[en] : New Gdm Theme with user list based on Jaunty background and Pandemonio Arancio gdm theme.

Far from perfect but it’s a first draft.

Get it here.

[fr] : Nouveau thème Gdm avec liste des utilisateurs basé sur le fond d’écran jaunty et le thème gdm Pandemonio Arancio.

C’est loin d’être parfait mais c’est un premier jet (et moins pire àmha que le thème de base).

À télécharger ici.

WebKitGtk+ 1.1.8

[en] : After Midori 0.1.7 it’s WebKitGtk+ 1.1.8 time \o/

And, of course, it’s available in the Webkit-team PPA.

[fr] : Après Midori 0.1.7, c’est au tour de WebKitGtk+ 1.1.8 de pointer le bout de son nez.

Bien évidemment cette version est disponible dans le PPA Webkit-team.

Midori 0.1.7

[en] : Christian Dywan announced it, Midori 0.1.7 is out.
If you’re using the git version from the midori PPA, you won’t see many changes.
For the newcomers, here the improvments :

Midori now remembers which extensions are activated and which aren’t. Panel detaching works a lot better than it did before. A Feed Panel extension was added, that lets you read news feeds in a panel in Midori. Spell checking and custom fixed font sizes are supported now. Middle clicking on menu items does open new tabs now. libnotify is used (if present at runtime) to notifiy about finished transfers. The preference Open new pages in: New window is actually working as expected now (it used to be ignored). You can use ‘.’ or ‘/’ to search inline on any page, just like vim, man, Opera and lots of other utilities support it. And a little highlight for friends of user stylesheets, ‘@-moz-document’ is recognized and partially supported now, which means that lots of user styles now work with Midori that didn’t before.
And I almost forgot, we have speed dial on new tabs now (optionally), so go ahead and quickly add your favourite web pages to it.

This new version is now available in the Midori PPA.

[fr] : Christian Dywan l’a annoncé, midori 0.1.7 est sorti.
Si vous utilisez la version git du PPA Midori, rien de nouveau.
Pour les autres voici la mauvaise traduction de l’annonce :

Midori se souvient maintenant si les extensions sont activées ou pas. Le détachement de panneaux fonctionne bien mieux qu’auparavant. Une extension flux a été ajouté, qui vous permet de lire votre flux de nouvelles dans un panneau de Midori. Le vérificateur d’orthographe et la police à largeur fixe personnalisée sont maintenant supportés. Le clic-du-mileu dans les éléments de menu ouvre maintenant dans un onglet. libnotify est utilisé (si présent) pour prévenir de la fin des transferts. L’option Ouvrir les nouvelles pages dans: La nouvelle page s’ouvre maintenant comme désirée (l’option était ignorée). Vous pouvez utiliser ‘.’ ou ‘/’ pour rechercher en ligne dans n’importe quelle page, tout comme dans vim, man, Opera et plein d’autres utilitaires. Pour les Styles utilisateurs, ‘@-moz-document’ est reconnu et partiellement supporté, beaucoup de styles utilisateurs qui ne fonctionnaient pas sont désormais reconnus par Midori.
Optionnellement une page Appel Rapide est affichée dans les nouveaux onglets, vous pouvez ajouter facilement vos pages favorites.

Cette nouvelle version est disponible dès maintenant dans le PPA Midori.

Utilisation du système de notification Ubuntu pour Firefox

Firefox/aBrowser utilise par défaut son propre système de notification.

notification-firefox

Il est néanmoins possible grâce à un module complémentaire d’utiliser le nouveau système de notification «Ubuntu» découvert avec Jaunty.

Attention c’est un module expérimental.

Pour l’installer il faut se diriger ici.

Ensuite il faut désactiver la notification mozilla en utilisant about:config et en changeant la variable browser.download.manager.showAlertOnComplete à faux (false).

Et voilà !

notification-ubuntu

Source : OMG! UBUNTU!

PS : J’ai juste créé cet article pour qu’on ne pense pas que je sois obnubilé par midori et webkit 😛
