Request for Comment

December 24, 2010 – 7:00 pm

I currently have 2 prototypes working. Search-as-you-type and Right-click -delete.

Anyone care to comment on those two? If you have feature requests, please go here:
Feature Tracker

For instance, Does anyone want confirmation on the delete? (I think no)
Should the deleted item be placed in the clipboards when it is deleted? (I think yes)

Does search-as-you-type need to place the currently found item in the clipboards, or do we require a left-click to put them there (I think the latter).

Also on the plate are the XDG compliance (Thanks, Victor) and changing the icon. Here’s the new icon:New Icon
It is obtained from here:
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-themes-extras/0.9/gnome-themes-extras-0.9.0.tar.gz
Then modified for parcellite. The base image is GPL 2 or later, which fits parcellite’s licensing.

  2. Hi, I think a nice feature would be if parcellite were able to handle non-text data as well (i.e. pictures - show thumbnails of those in the clipboard).

    I agree. It’s on the list, and I’ve written a lot of code to support it, but it is not a trivial implementation.

  3. I tried the svn, not sure if you were looking for comments here, but.. I don’t seem to see both things working, do I have to checkout a branch?

    It’s not in SVN yet. I will post a comment when it is. -rickyrockrat

  4. I fail to compile the parcellite tarball due to lack of gtk+, however I can’t determine which package(s) I have to install in order to get the job done. Would appreciate any help on that matter. Further - the issue tracker bot closed the thread (http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2806703&group_id=235597&atid=1097280) I was following automatically - please have a look at it.

    I’ve re-opened the tracker. Still trying to get code released to SVN regarding this.
    You need GTK+ 2.10.0 or greater. If you are using apt, try apt-cache search libgtk+. Select the package with a -dev, i.e. for me it is libgtk2.0-dev. -rickyrockrat

  5. Sounds good :)

    > For instance, Does anyone want confirmation on the delete? (I think no)
    No.
    > Should the deleted item be placed in the clipboards when it is deleted? (I think yes)
    No. Unless I completely misunderstand what you mean.

    > Does search-as-you-type need to place the currently found item in the clipboards, or do we require a left-click to put them there (I think the latter).
    I think it should need a left-click but there should also be a keyboard shortcut for if the user doesn’t want to take their hands of the keyboard.

    No, left-click and Enter key.
