Description of problem:
Having loaded perl-App-Asciio (plus asciio) and it's dependencies. Running app-asciio in fedora 15 gnome 3 on an x86_64 machine (not virtual), the keyboard shortcuts, as outlined in app-asciio youtube video, do not work.
when i created a diagram using mouse commands and save the document, the resulting file was binary and was garbage when viewed from the CLI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Open App-Asciio and try to use keyboard shortcuts and then creating and saving a document.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open App-Asciio
2. Try to use keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl F1, Ctrl t)
3. Save a document and the resulting file is seen as binary
-keyboard shortcuts do not work
-resulting file after saving appears to be binary versus ascii
-keyboard shortcuts work
-resulting file saved will be standards text/ascii
1/ the shortcuts do not work. I have had this error too when I upgraded
my system. This is not due to a change in Asciio but, I believe, in a
change in the gtk perl bindings which do not return the same key names
as they previously did. It would be interresting to know what output you got in the terminal you started asciio in. Usually non matching shortcuts are reported.
I have update the key names in my own installation but I haven't
released anything to fix it for other users. You can mail me and I'll
send the updated files. I will take this problem with the gtk-perl ppl
and this will be in the, long overdue, next release
2/ saved file is binary. It can't be looked at in the command line.
save you file with the right extension! .txt for a text file that you can cat or less. or .png for a screenshot
That is documented and shown in the screencasts too
It is pure luck I saw this error. It would be good if the bugs found where forwarded to the author (me in this case) packaging problems are outside my competence though.
[aprayther@apray-chs-e6420 ~]$ asciio
Using setup directory:'/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/App/Asciio/setup/'
no handler for input '000 + KEY_Control_L'.
no handler for input 'C00 + KEY_Alt_L'.
And while i was quite confident that i did try .txt as an extension, alas i must not have because it works great when i do.
if you could help me out with the "key control", that would be cool.
This is certainly fixed on f16 with perl-Gtk2-1.223 where Gtk2 upstream changelog mentions "Cope with the rename of the keysym defines in gtk+ 2.22". And rebuilding rawhide's perl-Gtk2-1.224 locally on F15 fixes this for me.
I also tested with dayplanner and found that it too has problems. With perl-Gtk2-1.203, ESC key doesn't work and "Use of uninitialized value in numeric eq (==) at /usr/bin/dayplanner line 2451" appears on console. With perl-Gtk2-1.224, it's also fine.
I think we probably just need to build perl-Gtk2-1.224 (or 1.223) for F15.
