Description of problem:
their are a couple of small bugs in jpilot 0.99.7 if it is compiled
e.g. first day of the week monday does not work, switch to the next or
previous month often skips a month, jump to the current day causes a
lot of jumping between first day in month an current day.
the author sugges to use the current CVS version or compile it with GTK1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
first day of month is to monday
Actual Results: first day of month is sunday
Expected Results: first day of month to be monday
e.g. using http://jpilot.org/jpilot-0.99.7-1.i386.rpm which is
compiled with GTK1 fixes all the bugs.
Thank you for your notice.
Jpilot developers fixed the problem with first day of week. I will
update rpm after fixed version will be released.
The second problem with skipping a month probably is not a bug becouse
of if you press the mouse button for longer time month will keep
changing (this is different from Jpilot compiled with GTK) until you
release the mouse button. This is the only way I can reproduce this
The last problem is jumping between first day of the month and the
current day. I don't know where the problem is. Can you write steps to
Re the second problem: but it is not possible to skip a single month.
1. "Datebook/Jump to Today" Symbol
2. Left Symbol (for next month) next the current month
With my version you skip a whole month and jump to March.
Again Left Symbol and JPilot jumps to may.
Re last problem: If i click on the "Datebook/Jump to Today" Symbol, in
the area where time and appointments are listed, first the
appointments of the first day of the month are shown twice bevor the
appointments of the current day appear. Maybe this flickering is only
visible if there are a few appointments (on my computer 1 ghz, 40
appointments on the first day of month and in current day, it takes
about 1-2 seconds).
Thank you for your notice.
Re 2: I try to reproduce the problem, but I can't reproduce it, my
JPilot (JPilot version 0.99.7-2, GTK2 version 2.4.14, fc3) works well.
There is not this problem. Probably, you may try to test some other
program which use GTK2 and it's calendar. What version of GTK2 do you
Re 3: I try to reproduce it but also I don not find this problem, my
JPilot was all right. I use more than 40 appointments and my Jpilot
works well. It show the right appointments and it works quite fast. I
don't know where the problem may be. Perhaps you have a different
version of GTK2.
I use FC3 with:
I use the same versions and releases of packages GTK2 and JPilot and
my JPilot works correctly. I don't find these two errors.
After the new version (which will correct the first error) will be
released I will update JPilot.
I don't find other errors. In this cases JPilot works for me.
Maybe it has something to with my LANG setting.
I do not use UTF.
and in JPilot I use:
"Latin1 / No conversion"
Thank you for your notices.
I look at your bugs again with your language setting.
The second bug (problem with skipping a month) was OK.
But I notice your last bug. I didn't notice it, becouse it was quite
I fixed this bug. It's status is now "modified". This problem will be
fixed in new version jpilot-0.99.7-4.
If you find some other information which can help with reproducation
of the second problem send it.
