04:39 Amit hello i m unable to install Graphics::Magick  via CPAN
04:39 Amit any idea?
04:39 Wendy left #koha
04:41 robin why are you unable to install it?
04:45 Amit robin it's require Method::Signatures
04:46 Amit but in this module there is no Makefile.PL
04:46 robin are you using cpan to install it?
04:46 Amit i have try both cpan/manual
04:52 robin Method::Signature seems to have a lot of dependencies, did they all install successfully?
04:53 Amit Method::Signature creates a problem
04:55 Amit robin: any idea?
04:55 robin not really, I also get errors attempting to install it.
04:55 robin Can you just install the distros libgraphics-magick-perl?
04:56 Amit i have already install this module by rpm
04:57 robin then why are you trying to install it again?
04:57 Amit but is show a error while generating a patron card
04:58 Amit [Tue May 25 09:51:42 2010] [error] [client] Can't locate Graphics/ in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/kohaclone /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.1​0.0/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.​10.0/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /opt/kohaclone/patroncards/ line 24., referer: h
04:58 Amit ttp://localhost:8081/cgi-bi​n/koha/patroncards/
04:58 robin Well, when you installed the RPM, did it install Graphics/ in one of those locations?
04:59 Amit robin: I think it's require CPAN module also
05:00 robin well, if there's a distro package, it'll take the place of the CPAN module.
05:00 Amit hmm
05:01 Amit so which is the better way CPAN or RPM
05:01 robin RPM if you can
05:01 Amit k
05:14 robin chris: why, when adding a patron, is zip code mandatory?
05:16 chris you can make it not be
05:17 chris you can make whatever you want mandatory
05:17 chris i forget where
05:17 chris somewhere in admin :)
05:19 chris system preferences
05:19 chris in the patrons tab
05:19 chris BorrowerMandatoryField
05:19 chris i love searchable sysprefs
05:19 chris pianohacker++
05:21 robin ah, cool
05:24 robin "Expiration date:  00/02/0" -- that'll be MySQL and it's inifinite wisdom, right? :)
05:24 chris :)
05:25 chris mysql takes the gigo mantra to the limit :)
05:25 robin heh
05:34 robin chris: is it normal for it to sit for a long time after hitting "Stage for Import"? Last time I tried, I don't remember it taking this long.
05:35 robin Oh, it had worked, it just hadn't told me.

13:03 jwagner Morning all.  Got an indexing question for you.  There are indexes like mc-ccode or mc-itype which allow you to search more than one code.  Would it be possible to set up an mc-branch index and search more than one branch at a time?

13:30 owen I notice with the new Bugzilla I'm prompted to download patch attachments rather than being able to view them in my browser.

15:19 libtek Anyone know if it is possible to override blocks in koha?  I don't want to disable them, but if we want to override them, maybe even through an elevated user, can it be done?
15:19 owen Depends on the block
15:20 owen ...and I'm not sure which permissions are in 3.0.x and which are only in 3.2...
15:20 libtek How about, for example, you have an item that doesn't circ.  Sometimes we will loan it.  Is there a way to do this?
15:22 cait I think you can override taht
15:23 cait not sure if its a granular permission or every staff member can do
15:24 owen I can't override a "not for loan" item in 3.2 with superlibrarian privileges
15:24 libtek Neither can I.  I was wondering if I was missing a special setting somewhere.
15:25 wizzyrea I know this is one of the ptfs features
15:28 Kivutar left #koha
15:30 libtek what is ptfs?
15:30 mle ptfs is a company

15:59 hdl_laptop gmcharlt: just sent you a patch for XSLT
15:59 gmcharlt hdl_laptop: yep, looks like I beat you to the punch
15:59 hdl_laptop Yes. But mine does much more.
15:59 gmcharlt I'll look at the patch you sent me privately and see if there are bits I can incoporate
15:59 hdl_laptop Do you want me to rebase ?
16:00 hdl_laptop I sent you privately in order to see whether I should go on and write sysprefs and update database.
16:00 hdl_laptop Or just leave that up for 3.4
16:01 gmcharlt I will handle it
16:01 gmcharlt considering that your patch includes bogus stuff like a use of LWP::Simple, I'll just take it apart and rebuild it manaully
16:01 gmcharlt I'll submit the results to the patches list
16:01 eric_b joined #koha
16:02 hdl_laptop gmcharlt: is LWP::Simple Bogus ?
16:03 gmcharlt considering that none of its methods are *used* in the places where your patch adds it
16:03 gmcharlt yes
16:06 gmcharlt also, 3920 is *already* fixed in HEAD
16:09 gmcharlt I've just opened enhancement bug 4813 for XSLTResultsDisplay to be fully implemnted in 3.4

17:14 libtek Question...I am tinkering with exporting patron records from our current system to import into Koha.  Is there any functionality that is broken either with reports or notices if I put the street number with the rest of the address?
17:15 brendan shouldn't be it's a text field
17:16 libtek Wasn't sure.  I don't usually see the address separated from the street number.
17:17 owen libtek: That is entirely optional
17:17 owen You'd only want to use that if you were to always use street number + street type
17:17 jwagner It's more of a European setup -- US libraries don't usually do it that way.  Depends on your data & where you are : -)
17:18 jwagner hey, owen, since you're here -- there's no way to limit jquery statements by branch is there?  Say you have separate OPACs for different consortia branches?
17:19 jwagner I can't think of a way to apply a jquery that wouldn't affect all of them.
17:19 owen Not unless there was some evidence of the current branch in the page which you could check
17:20 jwagner That's a thought.  Don't have a request for that right now, but I was thinking about customizations & that suddenly popped into my mind.
17:20 owen We really need a well-thought-out method for handling multiple opac configurations
17:21 jwagner Yes, _please_  I was doing some experimenting today with the current setup.  I managed to make it search multiple branches and multiple ccodes (my current requirements), but it's REALLY clunky
17:21 libtek One more question - If a patron has a physical address and P.O. Box, which address should go where, and will Koha know to use the P.O. Box when creating notices?
17:22 jwagner I couldn't get it to use a remote server stylesheet, but I don't know if that would work once my patch for that is in place.
17:22 owen libtek: Around here we've been told to always put the PO box first or it won't get delivered to the right place
17:22 owen Koha only cares about address1 and address2, it doesn't care what you put in them
17:23 libtek So the alternate address is ignored by the system, as far as notices go.  That's only for staff to reference, right?
17:24 jwagner libtek, yes, so far as I know.

19:19 munin Announcement from my owner (gmcharlt): kohagit
19:19 wizzyrea I'm curious about the syspref for the intranet navigation
19:19 wizzyrea it doesn't seem to style the links the same when you put a URL in there?
19:19 wizzyrea
19:19 wizzyrea is there a philosophical reason for that
19:20 wizzyrea I do notice that it's not in a <li> tag
19:21 wizzyrea and I suppose, now that I think about it, you probably don't want to require entries there to be automatically enclosed in a <li>
19:21 wizzyrea um
19:21 wizzyrea never mind I think I answered my own question >.<
19:22 owen Happy to be of service!
19:22 wizzyrea lol
19:22 wizzyrea sorry for the distraction.
19:23 owen In my test install it seemed like I needed to adjust the width of #toplevelnav in order to keep the menu from wrapping.
19:23 wizzyrea I just added the <li> around it and now it looks right
19:23 wizzyrea sorry, that was dumb. 30 seconds worth of firebug and I knew why it was doing that.
19:24 wizzyrea how many items do you have up there?

19:56 davi left #koha
19:59 gmcharlt owen: I'm curious to hear your thoughts on bug 4523
20:00 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=4523 enhancement, P5, ---, chris, NEW, - possibility to show / hide the filters menu
20:01 owen I agree with your comment that it would seem odd to have a control here but nowhere else
20:01 davi joined #koha
20:02 owen I'm not sure why this particular instance needs to be hidden, but I don't manage budgets so I don't know how this page can work in the real world
20:02 gmcharlt saving horizontal space?  dunno
20:03 gmcharlt I'm thinking that if we go in for something like this, besides doing it consistently, we'd need better styling to make it clear what the link was doing
20:04 owen I've never found what I felt like was a good implementation of this kind of thing
20:04 owen I think it's always awkward
20:07 gmcharlt maybe a second layer?  click a link for more/advanced options, it shows up?
20:07 gmcharlt ... but if you do that, you'd want to make sure that if you set a filter, that you could continue to see what the filter values in effect are
20:08 * wizzyrea is reminded about the usability study she'd like to do/have done
20:09 wizzyrea dumb question: what area of collegiate study does usability fall under?
20:09 wizzyrea Computer Science?
20:09 owen navel-gazing
20:09 wizzyrea snarktastic!
20:09 gmcharlt wizzyrea: quite a few areas, actually
20:09 wizzyrea so if I were looking for a usability class that could potentially do a study as a project
20:09 gmcharlt arts and design, computer science, psychology, etc.
20:10 * wizzyrea gazes lovingly at her navel
20:10 gmcharlt as far as course titles to look for
20:10 jwagner_meeting is now known as jwagner
20:10 gmcharlt usability, of course, but also interaction design
20:10 wizzyrea how is it that you know absolutely everything, gmcharlt?
20:10 gmcharlt human-computer interfaces
20:10 jwagner a lot of project management areas deal with usability and process.   Especially things like Six Sigma
20:10 wizzyrea I"m going to start calling you "gmcharltopedia"
20:10 wizzyrea aha
20:10 wizzyrea yes, thanks
20:10 gmcharlt my brain is my own!  it's not a wiki!
20:10 gmcharlt ;)
20:11 wizzyrea lol... you'll notice I didn't call you wikigmcharltopedia
20:11 jwagner You Are Not A Number!  You Are A Free Wiki!
20:11 gmcharlt riffing on what jwagner says, it can verge into pure management theory
20:11 gmcharlt e.g., time-and-motion studies
20:11 wizzyrea aha, so several areas to look
20:11 * wizzyrea goes to look at the local university
20:12 * owen must leave, but will try that patch tomorrow and see if it inspires him
20:12 owen left #koha
20:14 wizzyrea these seem promising
20:14 wizzyrea will email these people and see what they say
20:14 wizzyrea probably not next semester, but maybe next year
20:15 gmcharlt yep, looks like you're on the right track
20:15 gmcharlt particularly if the two intructors listed also have grad stduents
20:16 wizzyrea 2nd looks like grad level class to begin with
20:16 gmcharlt right, which is good
20:16 gmcharlt but if you get a grad student involved in doing usability work for Koha as a thesis project
20:16 gmcharlt *much* more free labor
20:16 gmcharlt ;)
20:16 wizzyrea hehe

21:00 JimmytheGeek I'm getting this error when I try to visit my site initially:
21:00 JimmytheGeek Software error:

21:01 JimmytheGeek Where can I find, or did something not install properly?
21:01 bgkriegel joined #koha
21:02 chris looks like yeah you didnt install YAML
21:02 wizzyrea have you installed YAML?
21:02 wizzyrea doh
21:02 chris what os are you running?
21:02 JimmytheGeek Debian Lenny
21:03 JimmytheGeek I must have missed something in the Install.x file
21:04 JimmytheGeek is this a sudo apt-get install fix, or do I need to go back a few steps
21:04 wizzyrea sudo apt-get install libyaml-perl or somesuch
21:04 JimmytheGeek ok
21:04 wizzyrea at this point most of your problems are going to be perl modules you've missed.
21:05 JimmytheGeek Cool. Thanks, wizzyrea
21:05 wizzyrea larsw: you've been super busy, awesome
21:05 wizzyrea larsw++
21:07 JimmytheGeek Now it's can't locate HTML/Template/ Another apt-get?
21:07 wizzyrea probably a cpan
21:07 wizzyrea sudo cpan -i HTML::Template::Pro (I think)
21:07 wizzyrea (somebody please correct me if I'm wrong)
21:08 larsw JimmytheGeek, if you haven't installed it yet, installing the apt-file package is super-useful for that; you can then do this: apt-file search HTML/Template/ and it will tell you which package, if any, contains the file
21:08 wizzyrea ^^ good tip
21:09 wizzyrea larsw++
21:09 larsw wizzyrea, thanks for you incs, I try to be useful
21:10 wizzyrea you are definitely useful
21:10 wizzyrea :D
21:10 * wizzyrea learns something useful from larsw almost every day
21:23 JimmytheGeek Great tip, larsw. I'll use it for sure. @wizzyrea - your command was correct. I'm going to have to do these step by step it looks like.
21:23 JimmytheGeek I am Chuggington
21:52 gmcharlt larsw: regarding  C4/Installer/, would you think it a good or bad idea to record the Debian packages that supply the given Perl modules there
21:55 larsw gmcharlt, ideally the mapping from Perl or CPAN module to Debian package would be automated, I think; not sure if it is entirely feasible, so adding debian packages manually to the list would be ok with me
21:55 wizzyrea oh, chrome has firebug-like functionality built in
21:55 * wizzyrea didn't know that
21:55 chris it does now
21:55 wizzyrea that's neat
21:56 larsw gmcharlt, we'd need to optionally specify the Debian package version as well, since it is not always the same as the cpan module version, for example
21:56 gmcharlt larsw: yeah, you can guess the Debian package name 90% of the time, but not always
21:57 gmcharlt as far as the hash is concerned, I'm thinking something like debian => package-name as the default
21:57 gmcharlt and debian-lenny => foo, debian-squeeze => baz
21:58 gmcharlt if necessary to specify a different package name for a particular debian release
21:58 gmcharlt and a boolean debian_use_testing if it's known that stable doesn't have the minimum version required
21:58 JimmytheGeek any idea where the module is in the CPAN
21:59 JimmytheGeek specifically the one that belongs in MARC/File/ ?
22:01 gmcharlt JimmytheGeek: the module is MARC::File::XML
22:01 gmcharlt currently[…]/MARC/File/
22:01 larsw gmcharlt, I'm worried that adding more abstraction on top of the Debian packaging is going to a) make things difficult to change for a non-Koha person (when Koha gets uploaded to Debian) and b) will blow up and end up requiring a lot of complexity to handle all different scenarios
22:02 larsw gmcharlt, would it be acceptable to not generate the dependency list in debian/control automatically, but have the debian package build check it against checking if a Debian package contains a perl module should be possible
22:06 JimmytheGeek thanks gmcharli
22:07 JimmytheGeek sorry, gmcharlt
22:07 gmcharlt larsw: here's an example of what I have in mind
22:07 gmcharlt
22:08 gmcharlt and we could add convenience routines to extract the list of Debian packages for the purpose of feeding into debian/control
22:09 gmcharlt my main goal is to have a single place that encodes all (Perl) dependency information
22:09 gmcharlt obviously things like mysql, etc., would have to be accounted for by the packagers separately
22:09 gmcharlt but there are *far* fewer such dependencies than there are perl module deps
22:10 JimmytheGeek This would appear, to me anyway, to be an 'oh SHIT!' moment:
22:10 JimmytheGeek Access denied for user 'kohaadmin'@'localhost' (using password: YES) at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 697.
22:10 larsw I'm for keeping things in one place, but against making the packaging hard for a generic Debian developer to understand
22:12 larsw gmcharlt, but let me think about this and get back to you?
22:13 gmcharlt larsw: sure thing
