02:20 glernil good day!
02:21 glernil I'm configuring koha to send notifications to patrons upon checking in and checking out an item but i'm stuck with a problem
02:21 glernil I have ssmtp as my MTA and gmail as my email server
02:22 glernil i already added process_message_queue to the crontab which i set every hour
02:23 glernil i'm recieving the following message in my gmail inbox
02:23 glernil Can't locate C4/ in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /home/koha32/ line 28.

02:24 glernil I can send email message through the commandline
02:25 gmcharlt glernil: make sure you set PERL5LIB in the crontab
02:25 glernil oops.. how?

04:50 cait if you make one I coud link some of the old and ugly things to it
04:50 eythian sure. I'll do that tomorrow.

05:54 glernil good day!
05:54 eythian cait: it was nice and quiet
05:55 glernil after i installed the latest version (3.04) koha can't send notification emails to patrons
05:57 AmitG heya glernil
05:57 glernil hello
05:58 glernil after I installed the latest version (3.04) koha can't send notification emails to patrons
05:59 AmitG glernil u installed your mail server
05:59 AmitG postfix or sendmail
05:59 magnus_away is now known as magnuse
05:59 glernil i'm using ssmtp as my MTA and my smtp server is gmail.
06:00 glernil i can send email using the command line and i already used the crontab. xample
06:00 eythian glernil: are messages getting into the messages table?
06:00 glernil how can i see if it goes there?
06:00 eythian (i.e. is the problem sending email, or generating emails)
06:00 eythian I think there's a way through the UI...
06:00 AmitG message_queue table
06:00 * eythian checks
06:01 eythian yeah, if you're handy to the database, have a look in message_queue
06:01 glernil i just can't see what is the main problem here but when i check the account of the user after checking out there is no notice being sent
06:03 magnuse glernil: you said you got "Can't locate C4/ in @INC"? that might mean you need to set some variable in your crontab
06:03 eythian Oh, I missed that one. Yeah, that'll make a difference.
06:03 magnuse see lines 21 and 22 here:[…]acba8f243;hb=HEAD
06:05 eythian hmm, maybe the viewing of the message logs is a figment of my imagaination...
06:06 cait eythian: the messaging/notices tab in patron account
06:08 glernil magnuse: i already did that.
06:09 magnuse glernil: and did that get rid of the "Can't locate C4/ in @INC" messages?
06:10 glernil yes... no more errors in my inbox
06:10 eythian cait: I was thinking that there was something that showed you the whole list. I guess I just use the database.
06:10 cait I use a saved report, but I don't think there is a built in access to the whole list
06:11 glernil eythian: there are no new messages inside the table message_queue
06:11 cait glernil: did you update and it worked before?
06:12 eythian glernil: OK, that suggests that your messages aren't being generated. Have you checked through the rules to see if stuff has changed that might be causing them to not happen?
06:16 glernil where should i check?
06:17 glernil item circulation alerts are all green
06:18 eythian hmm, not sure. Patron categories set to send overdues?
06:19 eythian also, any errors showing up in the cron logs?
06:21 glernil i enabled the enhanced messaging in the patrons tab
06:21 glernil and i checked item checkout and item check in in the Default messaging preferences for a specific patron
06:25 eythian Don't really know beyond that sorry
06:25 cait glernil: are notices defined under administration > notices?
06:25 cait does your borrower have an email address?
06:29 glernil cait: yes definitely.. they have emails
06:30 glernil cait: notices are defined under tools > notices?
06:31 cait yes
06:31 glernil i have 17 types of notices
06:33 cait CHECKIN?
06:34 cait you should have CHECKIN and CHECKOUT in module circulation
06:34 cait and after that I am out of ideas too :(
06:34 glernil yes i have checkin and checkout notices
06:35 hdl joined #koha
06:36 glernil i think the problem is that the system does not generate notices to be sent
06:36 glernil cait: i think the problem is that the system does not generate notices to be sent
06:37 cait sorry, no idea at the moment
06:37 cait and have to go
06:37 cait bbl
06:37 cait left #koha
06:37 glernil eythian: i think the problem is that the system does not generate notices to be sent since the message-queue table has no entry
06:38 glernil AmitG: i think the problem is that the system does not generate notices to be sent since the message-queue table has no entry
06:38 eythian glernil: yep, which suggests that either the cron jobs are not running, are failing, or that they're running but doing nothing for some reason.
06:39 eythian I'd start by looking in the cron job logs to see that they are running.
06:41 glernil Apr 26 14:42:01 koha32-virtualbox CRON[4080]: (koha32) CMD ($KOHA_CRON_PATH/ # JOB_ID_2)
06:42 eythian is there a line after that?
06:42 magnuse $KOHA_CRON_PATH should probably not show up there?
06:42 eythian I'm wondering if it's a but suspicious that the variable is in the pathname and not expanded by cron, but
06:42 eythian err
06:42 eythian but I have no systems that do it that way to check

07:18 francharb hello all
07:21 kf hi francharb :)
07:21 kf mib_w3re62: what do you want to do?
07:21 kf have you seen the sql reports libraray on the wiki?
07:22 mib_w3re62 yea
07:22 mib_w3re62 but i cant find wht i needed on wiki
07:25 mib_w3re62 I want to list the records with details  along with number of items with each records
07:25 sophie_m joined #koha
07:27 mib_w3re62 something like  table with :
07:27 mib_w3re62 biblionumber   , title, callnumber , items count
07:28 mib_w3re62 1,  History of Nepal   ,   35  WB 2005 ,    5
07:29 kf hm
07:32 mib_w3re62 can anyone help me???pleas
07:32 kf select b.biblionumber, title, itemcallnumber, (select count(*)
07:32 kf from items i2 where i2.biblionumber = b.biblionumber)
07:32 kf from biblio b, items i where i.biblionumber = b.biblionumber
07:32 kf not the most elegant solution perhaps but it works
07:33 kf ah...
07:33 kf could be a problem if you have different callnumbers for items on one record
07:33 mib_w3re62 ok
07:34 mib_w3re62 i guess call number will be same for all items with same record
07:35 kf not necessarily, depends how yourl ibrary works with callnumbers
07:35 mib_w3re62 is this from wiki??
07:35 kf no
07:35 kf from my head

07:43 mib_w3re62 wht i need to do further for z3950 to make it work
07:44 rangi glernil: no one will be magically able to answer you, even if you ask the same question again and again, i suggest you ask on the mailing list
07:44 kf do you want to act your installation as z3950 server or download records into koha using z3950?
07:44 kf hi rangi
07:45 kf how did the training go?
07:45 rangi hi kf

11:09 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6143 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, oleonard, NEW, New feature: capability to limit the RSS results
11:09 conan well, I'll try to make it short then: what would you prefer to mark a disabled password (bug 3674) a character or a new column in borrowers
11:09 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3674 minor, PATCH-Sent, ---, nahuel.angelinetti, REOPENED, Creating users with empty password
11:10 conan I tried to make a general fix yesterday for 3674, 6220 and 6224, and to also implement Katrin fischer suggestion
11:10 rangi the character was ok, it was just the implementation was flawed, it was being md5d
11:10 conan but I endeed up with an over engineered function
11:11 conan I thought this: what if we want the hability do mark enabled/disabled users? then what if after disabling we want to re-enable them? with the character we loose the original password, and have to generate a new one
11:12 conan so thinking about maintaining the original password lead me to think about a possible future modification on the way to encode the password
11:12 conan and that lead me to think that choosing '!' to mark one disabled could be dangerous in the future
11:12 conan but maybe I'm overthinking all this
11:13 rangi a disabled login would be fine

11:14 rangi that just stops you being able to issue items to them

12:27 conan hdl: hello
12:27 wahanui hola, conan
12:27 tcohen question: is it a problem that a record in 'biblio' table doesn't have a frameworkcode? (i.e. ='')
12:27 conan hdl: sorry I was hunting a bug in bug in a bug
12:27 conan hdl: you were logged in, did you read our previous conversation with rangi, or should I repeat?
12:27 hdl that is a kind of hunt I like.
12:27 hdl I read.
12:28 conan hdl: what do you think? do you use that feature at biblibre?
12:28 hdl But what is your need ?
12:28 hdl We have.
12:28 hdl nahuel would not develop things without a need.
12:28 conan ok
12:29 conan so 3674 needs to be properly implemented then
12:29 conan that's my question, what to do with 3674
12:29 hdl bug 3764

12:32 conan hdl: I tried to make a general fix yesterday for 3674, 6224 and to include enhancements suggested by Karin Fischer on 6220
12:32 sophie_m joined #koha
12:32 conan hdl: and I endeed with a broken overengineered module
12:32 conan hdl: so I want to simplify my life today :)
12:33 conan the thing is everytime I think about it, gets more complicated
12:34 conan the initial thing is: we haver users, then those users should have a login/password
12:34 sophie_m left #koha
12:34 sophie_m joined #koha
12:34 conan if we make an automatic one for them, then we have to send it somehow, mail preferably, and that introduces much stuff in the module
12:35 conan also, if we accept Karin's idea about making autogenerated passwords 'onetime passwords' then we would need to add a column to db
12:35 conan and all this thinking leads me to re-think that maybe I'm making too much fuss about something nobody needs
12:36 conan maybe we can just fix 3674 by avoiding the encoding ModMember() is doing on default borrowers.password = '!'
12:36 hdl conan: some users are system users.
12:36 hdl So they should not have password
12:37 NateC joined #koha
12:37 hdl this is what induced in having disabled passwords
12:38 conan you mean system like in they come from the subyacent system?
12:39 hdl they are created for koha... and services. should be staff.

20:49 wizzyrea you know that the computer can't tell you what you like unless it knows a little about you right>?
20:50 wizzyrea unless someone has developed a mind reading computer
20:50 wizzyrea (aside: if they have, there goes my sacred space)
20:51 SpaceLibrarian_home wizzyrea: yes, I agree

21:11 space_librarian best way to save during microsoft products...
21:11 space_librarian and then get openoffice. :)
21:11 jcamins space_librarian: sacrilege! LibreOffice is Libre!
21:12 space_librarian then get libreoffice. I am unfamiliar with it...
21:12 space_librarian I must know more...
21:12 wizzyrea libreoffice is uber great :P
21:13 * space_librarian goes to install libreoffice...
21:22 * cait took a screenshot of her excel diagram
21:22 cait put that on the slide
21:22 cait now it survived
21:23 space_librarian :)
21:28 * jcamins thinks you'd probably like the equivalent LibreOffice diagram better. :P
21:28 * space_librarian is waiting patiently for LibOffice to download...
21:32 cait jcamins: next time
21:33 jcamins :)
21:33 cait ok, need some nice koha libraries examples! :) nice looking catalogs are a plus
21:34 rangi

21:34 cait hehe
21:34 cait special library?
21:34 rangi

21:38 SteveJ The plant and food one is interesting. Is there an autpomatic feed for new items buried somewhere in Koha?
21:38 brendan_ hiya all
21:38 cait the pictures look too nice
21:38 cait more a manual thing I guess?
21:38 rangi naw, just pulls it from acquisitions data
21:38 cait and you can subscribe rss feeds sorted by acq date
21:39 rangi yep
21:39 SteveJ cait, can you direct me to where to find that?
21:39 rangi SteveJ: any search results are an rss feed
21:40 rangi so do a search on an item type say
21:40 cait rangi: the pictures too?
21:40 SteveJ Doh, I totally knew that!
21:40 rangi and then order by acquisition date
21:40 rangi cait: those are just from amazon cait
21:41 rangi[…]ly-acquired-books
21:42 cait ah
21:42 cait and transformed?
21:44 rangi of course
21:44 rangi
21:44 cait ok, give other countries a chance ;)
21:45 wizzyrea nexpress isn't as pretty as I'd like
21:45 cait the last one is an older koha version, right?
21:45 rangi yup
21:45 cait wizzyrea: why not?
21:45 wizzyrea lack of effort :P
21:46 cait oh bad excuse
21:46 wizzyrea very
21:46 cait excuse?
21:46 wahanui cait: static from plastic slide rules
21:46 wizzyrea yes, that
21:46 wizzyrea >.>
21:46 cait ok wizzyra, you get until my next big presentation - which is in june!
21:46 wizzyrea ^.^ ok I'll do my best
21:47 wizzyrea though, tbh
21:47 wizzyrea plain jane kind of suits it
21:47 cait tbh?
21:47 wizzyrea to be honest
21:47 space_librarian wizzyrea: spoilsport
21:47 wizzyrea i know
21:47 space_librarian :p
21:47 * wizzyrea is ashamed
21:47 * space_librarian is amused
21:47 wizzyrea but look at that logo
21:47 cait ok, now I crashed ff4
21:47 wizzyrea wtf exactly am I supposed to design around THAT monstrosity
21:48 space_librarian point taken
21:48 wizzyrea ^.^
21:49 space_librarian For some reason, it reminds me of UPS. Not entirely sure why.
21:49 wizzyrea it's rapid!
21:49 wizzyrea and ... uh...
21:49 wizzyrea not brown?
21:49 space_librarian I think it's all parecel companies. And the speedlines.
21:49 space_librarian parcel*
21:49 * space_librarian needs coffee STAT
21:50 space_librarian Ah... colours of USPS... Speedlines of DHL. Mix them together and I get UPS. Oy Vey.
21:51 wizzyrea hehe
21:51 hdl cait: you may like this OPAC :
21:51 wizzyrea oh yea that's a pretty one
21:52 space_librarian I like the idea of the subject cloud.
21:52 cait I really have to find out how you do some of those nice tricks
21:52 cait like the strips in the login box
21:52 cait but not tonight :)
21:52 wizzyrea same, and same
21:52 wizzyrea easy enough I'd fathom with chrome + developer tools
21:53 cait I like the rose in front of the headlines
21:53 wizzyrea mhm
21:53 cait hdl: do you have maybe some numbers for me about that one? :)
21:54 hdl which numbers do you want ?
21:54 cait like bibs, items, patrons, branchs, type of library
21:54 cait looks like a public library
21:54 hdl This library is quite little. But the customisation is quite interesting
21:55 cait the adv search?
21:55 hdl indeed it is
21:55 space_librarian I also like Médiathèque... so much more descriptive than bibliothèque...
21:55 cait not sure, some libraries here use that too, I am a bit indifferent about it
21:55 wizzyrea hee:
21:56 * space_librarian must learn some perl so she can contribute...
21:56 hdl is much bigger public library too
21:56 wizzyrea no pressure:[…]future_a.html.csp
21:57 space_librarian viva la (geek) revolucion!
21:58 cait hm lots of branches and nice layout :)
21:58 cait the only problem with french libaries is, that I always try to not have to say the name
21:59 hdl (around 160000  records, 12000 borrowers and 29 branches)
21:59 space_librarian wizzyrea: funny comment about travel agents. I went to a talk where the speaker claimed that libraries should be like app stores and librarians like tripadvisor...
21:59 cait thx hdl :)
21:59 wizzyrea ha!
21:59 cait wizzyrea: but their catalog looks nicer
21:59 * cait hides
22:00 wizzyrea cait: honesty, i like it ;)
22:00 hdl if you search for academic libraries, univ-lyon3 or aix Marseille http://catalogue.univ-aix-mars[…]koha/
22:00 wizzyrea (seriously though, I know that nexpress could be improved)
22:00 hdl But little customisation
22:00 wizzyrea and with that
22:00 wizzyrea adieu for now ;)
22:01 hdl aix marseille is 800000 records
22:01 hdl more than 12000 users
22:01 cait and it's academic! right?
22:01 cait was looking for one
22:01 cait url?
22:01 space_librarian hdl:  there are some lovely catalogues in France.
22:02 hdl cait: provided two lines before
22:02 cait sorry, getting a bit tired
22:02 hdl too
22:03 hdl but will have some maintenance on Tuesday
22:03 hdl (for this one
22:03 hdl )
22:04 SteveJ left #koha
22:05 cait hdl: only want a nice screenshot for my slides
22:06 hdl look for wong in then ;)
22:06 cait and some numbes
22:06 cait showing the different types and sizes of libraries using koha
22:06 hdl around 330000 records for that one
22:08 hdl https://catalogue.univ-lyon3.f[…]B4%A2%20%E5%BC%95
22:10 hdl 56363 borrowers and 36 branches
22:10 hdl hope that helps
22:11 cait it's great
22:11 cait thx for your help :)

23:02 sekjal does anyone recall a bug report about changing the focus for the Holds Notification box on circ/
23:03 sekjal the problem being, librarians scanning in book after book, and if they don't look up to see there's a hold found, that hold never gets advanced
23:04 sekjal taking the focus off the barcode input would at least force them to look up to see why it didn't beep when they scanned the next material
23:07 rhcl I know our circ people have mentioned this, but I don't have a good frame of reference other than that, and no specific info on a bug for it.
23:08 sekjal it's easy enough to change the focus from the barcode input to the "confirm" button
23:08 sekjal but there should probably be a syspref to control that...
23:08 eythian sekjal: then they'll scan something, it'll press confirm, and that scan may get missed
23:09 eythian I'd think something like a double-beep and defocussing would be the best idea there
23:11 * sekjal busts out his barcode scanner
23:12 sekjal okay, so we get the "hold notification" sound
23:13 eythian where do you think empericism is going to get you, huh? ;)
23:13 sekjal and scanning in the next barcode does confirm it, but doesn't check in that material
23:13 sekjal so, yes, we could wind up in a situation where every other material fails to checkin properly
23:13 sekjal if sound is off, and the librarian isn't looking at the screen
23:14 eythian maybe the screen should flash colour for a moment to draw attention if sound is off...
23:14 space_librarian or give a pop-up if there is a hold on the book?
23:14 space_librarian and they manually have to close the pop-up...?!
23:15 eythian space_librarian: popups are closed by the enter key, that's bad because the scanner also sends enter
23:15 space_librarian hmmm...
23:15 space_librarian there must be a way around that.
23:15 sekjal if I kill the focus for the barcode input, it defaults to the checkout field at the very top...
23:16 eythian well, I'd expect something attention grabbing is good in this case too, otherwise you'll go through a bunch and realise it stopped doing anything a while back.
23:16 eythian sekjal: also not optimal...
23:16 eythian sekjal: can you explicitly defocus everything?
23:16 sekjal not sure... surely there must be a way
23:17 space_librarian ...
23:22 sekjal left #koha
23:22 sekjal joined #koha
23:25 sekjal sorry, internet cramp
23:26 eythian you can get a cream for that. "Deep packet" or something.
23:27 sekjal idea:  whenever there is a message on checkin, disable the input box for more barcodes.  like we do on circ/
23:28 eythian that's an option, so long as the focus doesn't jump to the search box
23:32 AdieNDA joined #koha
23:32 AdieNDA left #koha
23:32 sekjal it should stay with the checkin.... but I'll confirm
23:34 sekjal nope, jumps back to checkout... dang
23:35 eythian sekjal: oh, I know! Have the javascript ignore the CR being sent
23:38 sekjal Cr?
23:39 eythian carriage return
23:39 eythian enter
23:41 sekjal ah
23:41 sekjal that would make much more sense
23:48 space_librarian so there *is* a way. But can you get a beep to alert as well?
23:49 space_librarian you don't want to think you're still checking in several more books and you're not.
23:50 sekjal I think the real problem here is the user behavior
23:50 sekjal scanning in materials blindly is not proper use of the system
23:51 space_librarian but it's what many librarians do.
23:51 space_librarian lazy behaviour.
23:52 sekjal if they have the sound on, they'll get a different sound when the notification message shows up
23:52 eythian well, tbh we can only do so much. If they're not looking at the screen, they should put sound on.
23:53 sekjal so we're alerting both visually and audibly
23:53 space_librarian if there is sound attached to computer
23:53 eythian a small electric shock sent through the barcode scanner would be ideal :)
23:53 space_librarian lol. yes
23:53 sekjal eythian: agreed
23:53 space_librarian haptic feedback is a great idea.
23:54 sekjal we can't provide a different sound, because they're already ignoring sounds
23:54 NateC Hi #koha!
23:54 sekjal we can't provide a different visual cue, because they're already ignoring those
23:54 sekjal hey, NateC
23:54 space_librarian hey NateC.
23:54 brendan_ hiya natec
23:54 space_librarian sekjal: but if the system is beeping when it shouldn't...
23:54 space_librarian they may have to see why...
23:55 sekjal but they're already getting a nice "hold found" sound instead of the beep
23:55 sekjal opening.ogg
23:57 space_librarian hmmmm.
23:57 sekjal if we defocus or otherwise dump the rest of their scans, we still run the risk of them just doing it, then walking away, and now the Hold is still unfilled, and the items have not been returned
23:58 sekjal what about automatically confirming holds?  a system preference to just say "yes", no matter what, so there's no need for a confirm box?
23:58 space_librarian no librarian worth their salt will walk away without checking the screen after they finish checking books in. Of course, there are always those that don't...
23:59 space_librarian if it automatically confirms the hold, then the may need to be a pop-up with the holds screen just to double check then.
