By specifying the environment variable QT_GRAPHICSSYSTEM=X11 in the qgis.desktop file, the flickering of the map canvas in drag operations or when using a rubberband (measuring etc) is considerably reduced.
For reference see this mail: http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-developer/2013-August/027979.html
Fedora Account System Username: mkuhn
I'm an active upstream developer. This is my first package and I need a sponsor.
qgis is in Fedora.
Switching from package review to regular bug report, because qgis is already included in Fedora. I think the current qgis maintainers will welcome you as a co-maintainer. I can act as a proxy sponsor if needed.
Created attachment 791644 [details]
Patch to qgis package branch
I included a patch which is probably easier to apply and review.
I will be happy to act as a co-maintainer. In fact I have been discussing this already a couple of months ago with the current maintainer, but the idea somehow got lost.
ok, let's wait on Volker
Co-maintainers are warmly welcome in general, just apply via pkgdb!
@Matthias: I can't remember discussing it, sorry. I'm still abroad and will not find time for any non-trivial changes until September 10th.
Sorry, this is all new to me. I tried to apply via "Add myself to package" but I can only apply to the two "watch" acl's but on "commit" I get an error indicating
mkuhn must be in one of these groups: ('cvsadmin', 'packager', 'provenpackager', 'newpackager') to hold the commit acl
Am I totally off track or is this the part where I need to get sponsored?
@Volker it was mainly about the integration of osgearth back then and co-maintaining was discussed on a side-not IIRC.
7 days passed.
Of course 7 days passed! I said I won't get to it until the 10th!
Matthias, you can ask some sponsors to sponsor you directly because you are the current upstream.
But since this is a small, Volker, are you still busy now?
I'm in contact with Volker concerning sponsoring (Or will be again, as soon as time will allow me to. Probably mid-2014)
Concerning the patch, I think we can dismiss it, as it is not a nice fix (e.g. doesn't work from the command line) it is not urgent, and currently there is work underway to fix this properly upstream. Currently it looks like a proper fix (threaded rendering) will be part of 2.4 (Expected release time: July 2014).
If there is demand, I will create a package containing this change in my private repository as soon as the changes are merged to master.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
