00:37 librarygeekadam good evening to everyone
00:37 librarygeekadam I have a quick question if anyone can be of assistance
00:38 librarygeekadam I just installed Koha 3.06.02 on a single Ubuntu laptop following the instructions on the community page
00:38 librarygeekadam i am editing "Item Types"
00:38 librarygeekadam I am not given the option to add Renewals
00:38 librarygeekadam How many times a patron can renew an item
00:38 librarygeekadam any ideas?
00:43 librarygeekadam perhaps another question...can i revert my Koha back to the web install parts?

09:09 marcelr yes, you saw bugzilla
09:09 marcelr ?
09:09 rangi yup
09:09 marcelr pref is not used?
09:09 rangi the usecache syspref is used in another bug
09:10 rangi 7243
09:10 marcelr i will look there
09:10 rangi hmm or something liket hat
09:10 rangi ill find it for ya
09:11 marcelr must be another onbe

09:12 rangi thats it
09:12 marcelr ok
09:12 rangi the env stuff was added recently, after that patch was written
09:12 rangi im not sure i like it
09:12 marcelr no it adds another approach to prefs
09:12 rangi yeah
09:14 rangi 7249 allows this
09:14 rangi http://opac.koha.workbuffer.or[…]/svc/report?id=15
09:14 rangi and this
09:14 rangi http://opac.koha.workbuffer.or[…]/svc/report?id=13
09:15 rangi which in turn allows you to do

09:15 rangi with jquery
09:15 rangi (its what we had the highschool students doing)
09:15 marcelr ok
09:16 rangi </blather>
09:18 rangi also, 7248, (when its fixed) allows bug 7387
09:18 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7387 enhancement, PATCH-Sent (DO NOT USE), ---, chris, Needs Signoff , Add Template::Toolkit plugin to allow caching of includes
09:20 magnuse is there some other development that clashes with this?
09:22 rangi hmm dont think so
09:23 magnuse ah, i misunderstood something earlier then - never mind
09:24 rangi marcelr: ill get chrisdothall to take a look at the bug tomorrow
09:24 marcelr good
09:27 rangi magnuse:[…]e_Debian_packages   <-- good write up
09:28 magnuse thanks, rangi - there's probably room for improvement, but it's a start
09:29 rangi yup
09:29 magnuse and hopefully lots of people will need something like that ;-)

13:51 marcelr seems so
13:52 kf_lunch when I checked it was set to sign off
13:52 kf_lunch I mean needs sign-off
13:52 marcelr it was till i changed it to assigne
13:52 kf_lunch ah
13:53 kf_lunch hm
13:53 kf_lunch perhaps it gives us bugs leaving the needs sign-off status now instead of those entering it?
13:53 marcelr should status change be done there still

14:41 chris_n 3.6.3 by noon est
14:42 chris_n so why is it that after completing a transfer the item status field still shows in transit?
14:43 hdl is updated when checked in
14:45 chris_n ie.
14:46 chris_n hdl: so after completing the transfer it is also necessary to check in at the branch?
14:46 hdl yep
14:47 oleonard chris_n: What did you mean by "completing the transfer?"
14:47 hdl but you'd better ask paul_p_
14:47 hdl this is what I experienced.
14:47 chris_n circ > transfer
14:47 chris_n when I attempt to check in, koha tells me its not checked out
14:47 chris_n perhaps some background will help
14:48 oleonard chris_n: check-in won't tell you that a transfer has been made, not if the book has arrived at its destination
14:48 chris_n one of our librarians check some books out while logged in under the wrong granch
14:48 chris_n branch eve
14:48 chris_n even
14:48 chris_n she later checked them in under the right branch
14:49 chris_n now each of those items shows an "in transfer" status, but they are listed in the correct location (see screenshot above)
14:49 chris_n feature or bug?
14:49 chris_n :)
14:50 oleonard Bug. Checking them in should have removed the transfer status
14:50 * chris_n wonders if this bug is in master
14:50 chris_n we're still running 3.2.x
14:51 chris_n I'll file a bug report in a few moments
14:51 chris_n I suppose I'll have to hack up some SQL to fix things in the db
14:52 chris_n tnx hdl, oleonard
14:53 hdl chris_n: no problem
14:53 mbalmer I found a CUPS driver for the ™-T88IV, but only for a different Linux distro
14:53 mbalmer no we use a windows 7 PC ;)
14:56 oleonard chris_n: I can't reproduce that in master. Checked out at Branch A, checked in a Branch B.

15:06 Guest523 is now known as wizzyrea
15:07 wizzyrea oh yea
15:07 wizzyrea that's a known thing - 2x checkins on transits = bad
15:07 wizzyrea there's a bug for it....
15:08 wizzyrea bug 6226
15:08 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6226 normal, P5 - low, ---, koha.sekjal, NEW , Returning a misrouted item twice causes transit to correct receiving library to disappear
15:08 * chris_n looks
15:08 wizzyrea I'd welcome a patch for that
15:08 wizzyrea NEKLS has a testing protocol for that one.
15:08 wizzyrea :P
15:08 wizzyrea easy to sign of on from here.
15:09 wizzyrea s/of/off/
15:10 chris_n wizzyrea: is that the same as what I'm seeing?
15:10 chris_n ie
15:11 wizzyrea either way, receiving a transit twice often causes weirdness
15:11 chris_n check item out at branch a
15:11 chris_n return at branch b
15:11 wizzyrea I suspect it's a variant of this
15:11 chris_n and end up with things looking as they do in my screenshot above?
15:11 wizzyrea yep
15:11 chris_n k
15:11 chris_n I'll add my notes to that bug them
15:11 chris_n along with the screamshot
15:11 chris_n oopps
15:12 chris_n screenshot
15:12 wizzyrea it either ends up with a stuck transit, or a transit that disappears and orphans the item at the wrong branch
15:12 oleonard I tried that: check item out a branch a, return at branch b... Couldn't reproduce in master.
15:12 wizzyrea hehe screamshot
15:13 wizzyrea is that on master chris_n?
15:13 wizzyrea i admit I haven't tried to reproduce that on master recently
15:13 wizzyrea but we see the "double checkin does weird stuff" thing even now on 3.6.0
15:13 wizzyrea (for transits)
15:14 chris_n no, 3.2.x
15:14 wizzyrea ah then yea
15:14 wizzyrea that bug and it's variants would be in full force. :P
15:14 * chris_n feels like doing a screamshot sometimes ;-)
15:14 wizzyrea sometimes checking out and checking in the item clears the transit - sometimes.
15:15 chris_n I'll try that
15:15 wizzyrea this bug is the reason that nekls wants a "check status" that's separate from the check in box.
15:16 wizzyrea rangi and I talked about that - the catalog would work fine for that if you could just scan a barcode and bring back exactly the item you were looking for.
15:16 wizzyrea we talked about a tickbox for "exact search"
15:16 wizzyrea in the staff client catalog
15:16 wizzyrea oh, and good morning.
15:16 chris_n interesting
15:17 wizzyrea right now our librarians often want to quickly check an item, but scanning in the barcode to search doesn't bring back the item they're looking for
15:17 wizzyrea so they use the checkin
15:17 chris_n I just checked the item out at branch b and then in at branch a and the status corrected itself
15:17 wizzyrea WOO!
15:17 wizzyrea nice :)
15:18 chris_n what a lot of work to do
15:18 wizzyrea yea
15:18 chris_n probably a dozen or more items are wrong :P
15:18 wizzyrea oh yuck.
15:18 chris_n bug_fixing++
15:18 chris_n I'll add this case to the bug
15:18 chris_n right after releasing 3.6.3, though ;-)
15:18 wizzyrea hehe
15:19 chris_n chrome application short cuts are very slick and extremely useful for anyone interested
15:19 chris_n they allow you to run multiple independent log-ins to koha under the same user account
15:20 wizzyrea *nod* did you happen to get kiosk mode working with silent printing?
15:20 chris_n w/o the chocolate chip cookies getting mixed up with the sugar cookies
15:20 wizzyrea mmm cookies.
15:20 chris_n wizzyrea: hmm.... not yet
15:20 wizzyrea ah is no biggie
15:20 wizzyrea that's something I should probably look at
15:20 wizzyrea the firefox update thing is really irritating
15:20 chris_n koha looks very slick inside an application-style window, though
15:21 wizzyrea it nukes our printer settings and header/footer settings for receipts every time it updates
15:21 wizzyrea and it updates like, every month.
15:21 chris_n eekkk
15:21 wizzyrea i'd switch us to chrome in a heartbeat
15:23 wizzyrea if only we could get kiosk silent printing :)

15:37 magnuse chris_n++
15:38 magnuse chris_n: i hope you will be able to include norwegian bokm�l in the list of "Complete or near-complete translations" for 3.6.4 :-)

15:58 wizzyrea squee!
15:58 NateC joined #koha
15:58 chris_n 3.4.8 will have mega bugfixes too
15:59 chris_n that will be a hard branch to kill
15:59 * chris_n should use the more gentle "lay to rest"
15:59 wizzyrea I think we're pretty generous in supporting 2 major releases back.
16:00 wizzyrea hdl is wise.
16:01 * magnuse starts building his packages from 3.6.3
16:03 rangi the problem with 3.4.x isnt that it's ill, it's that it is very solid
16:03 rangi if it had problems, end of life would be an easy choice :)
16:04 chris_n exactly
16:05 rangi stats out for 3.6.3, 3 patches from academy students, 2 from jransoms son connor (who is 14 .. our youngest committer yet I think)
16:05 hdl is 3.6 the one ill then ?
16:05 chris_n and barring any serious changes, it will probably stay that wy
16:05 chris_n way, even
16:05 rangi 3.6.x is solid too
16:06 rangi[…]istics-for-3-6-3/
16:07 * magnuse is a little bit worried by bug 7445 and has applied a quick-and-dirty patch for it, but has otherwise not had any complaints about 3.6.x
16:07 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7445 normal, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, NEW , Clicking on a tag gives "Language ... does not exist"
16:08 rangi magnuse: language picker so should be a TT plugin :)
16:08 rangi cached using TT caching too
16:08 oleonard sekjal wants everything in a matrix, rangi wants everything in a TT plugin
16:08 magnuse huh? i don't think this is related to the language picker
16:09 magnuse so a matrix of tt plugins = bliss
16:09 rangi nope, it just reminded me
16:09 magnuse ah, ok, i'm less confused then ;-)
16:10 rangi ok, the wind seems to have finally quietened down, going back to sleep
16:11 magnuse ah, thaought it was a tad early for rangi...
16:21 chris_n wizzyrea: updated bug 6226
16:21 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6226 major, P3, ---, koha.sekjal, NEW , Returning a misrouted item twice causes transit to correct receiving library to disappear
16:25 wizzyrea chris_n++ thx
16:25 magnuse gah, first attempt at building packages was tripped up by tests failing on database dependent tests - t/Koha_template_plugin_KohaDates.t and t/Reports.t
16:26 wizzyrea hm what do they need
16:26 magnuse i'm just getting "Can't connect to local MySQL server"
16:26 wizzyrea bleh
16:27 magnuse 'cause you shouldn't need mysql to build the packages
16:27 magnuse i think rangi said they could/should be moved to the dir for the db-dependent tests...

17:03 druthb I'll have a maintenance script that helps with one of the problems in Bug 3069 out as a patch here in an hour or so.  Worked a treat on one of our sites.
17:03 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3069 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, gmcharlt, NEW , Koha Z39.50 client process discussion
17:05 wizzyrea well and clearing the reservoir has always been a task that support companies do
17:05 trea so, we need a clean reservoir cronjob?
17:05 wizzyrea well yea
17:06 trea in /etc/cron.monthly
17:06 wizzyrea ^^
17:06 wizzyrea this
17:06 wizzyrea gmcharlt!
17:06 trea gmcharlt: o/
17:06 drojf1 left #koha
17:06 hdl gmcharlt: :D
17:06 gmcharlt seriously, such a cronjob would be handy, with a couple cavets
17:07 gmcharlt first, since it's used both to cache Z39.50 search results *and* import batches
17:07 gmcharlt the cronjob should distinguish
17:07 kf_mtg I agree
17:07 gmcharlt not that one can't delete import batches, but not willy-nilly, since a batch has to be present in order to do a revert
17:07 kf_mtg I don't want it to touch our regular imports, only z3950
17:07 kf_mtg but I think the information is in the database
17:07 druthb In this case, my script did not distinguish, but the partner site had not done any cleans since 2009, so it needed doing Real Real Bad.  I put in a date param, and it cleans everything before then.
17:08 Guillaume left #koha
17:09 wizzyrea also a UI spot to "purge z39.50 batches"
17:09 gmcharlt secondly, I'm curious about use cases for the reservoir itself -- are there any advantages to keeping it (as more than just a very short-lived cache) when one could just requery the Z39.50 server?
17:09 druthb Easy enough to parameterize letting you choose batch, z, or both, and a "keep this many days" param.
17:09 druthb Then it'd be cronnable.
17:10 gmcharlt druthb: maybe add a locked column for import batches?
17:10 wizzyrea I do like the idea of getting away from the idea of a cache for z results though
17:10 druthb "Don't delet this one, no matter what?"
17:10 gmcharlt druthb: exactly
17:10 wizzyrea there must have been a reason for that at some point?
17:11 druthb gmcharlt:  I like the idea, but that'd be a enhance.  I'm in KISS mode right now.
17:11 gmcharlt fair enough
17:11 druthb wizzyrea: in, Koha Doesn't Have It.  Gotta store that data *somewhere*, and just like the sessions table, knowing when to drop it is Kinda Hard.
17:11 gmcharlt but in that case, purging import batches shouldn't be a default option, just z
17:12 Guillaume joined #koha
17:12 gmcharlt wizzyrea: and possibly as a limiting mechanism to avoid pushing too hard on slow/creaky/remote Z39.50 servers?
17:12 druthb gmcharlt:  The way I write scripts, the default is don't do *anything*.   I'm paranoid.
17:12 gmcharlt druthb: cool, then I won't be out to get you
17:12 gmcharlt (or will I?)
17:12 wizzyrea hehe
17:13 trea dun dun dunnnnn
17:13 wizzyrea limit how many you keep at all?
17:13 druthb You'll *have* to specify either -b, -z, or both, (as well as --update) or nothing at all will happen.
17:14 kf_mtg bye all

18:05 cait the itemtype display in result list and detail page are different
18:05 cait the detail page shows less information than the result list
18:05 cait is there any reason for that?
18:05 cait and do we want to keep it like that?

18:40 wizzyrea i suspect that I don't have itemtype images defined or on
18:40 cait oh
18:40 cait you can see at
18:40 wizzyrea even better :)
18:43 cait there are 2 icons
18:43 cait on the results list
18:43 wizzyrea cait you mean the "format, literary form display
18:43 cait but only one on the detail
18:43 cait yep that
18:44 wizzyrea hm
18:44 wizzyrea I don't see it in english... switching to deutsch
18:44 cait hmm
18:44 cait give me a minute
18:44 cait so I don't burn my soup
18:45 cait and when it's simmering I will look for links
18:45 wizzyrea I don't see it in deutsch either
18:45 wizzyrea screencast is broken atm
18:45 cait perhaps I turned it off there... hmmm
18:45 cait I will find examples
18:45 wizzyrea no I just only see one icon

18:47 aarkerio hi! somebody knows a Webpage about how import journal articles in koha?

18:48 cait I put a howto on the wiki for the keyboard
18:49 aarkerio I found this:

18:51 cait wizzyrea: seems there is a difference between 3.2.2 and 3.6.3
18:51 wizzyrea ah
18:51 cait but
18:51 cait the second part is missing
18:51 cait from the detai lpage
18:51 cait say we have something like

18:51 cait in result list
18:52 cait but only type: series
18:52 cait in detail
18:52 wizzyrea yea, I did notice that
18:52 cait and on 3.6.3 I had sometmes 2 items showing in the result list
18:52 cait but only always one
18:52 cait on detail
18:52 wizzyrea I wonder if there's some logic there that shows both biblevel and itemlevel itype that isn't working?
18:52 wizzyrea maybe a TT thing?
18:53 wizzyrea but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense - which item would it pull the item level itemtype from
18:53 wizzyrea so no, probably not that.

19:15 rangi back
19:16 wizzyrea i don't think I've ever seen the message "hasn't been transferred yet"
19:18 oleonard That's on the holds tab on
19:18 wizzyrea h
19:18 wizzyrea m
19:19 oleonard says "Current location: The Plains; Status: Waiting for X at Athens"
19:19 wizzyrea ooo yea
19:19 wizzyrea sounds like a botched transfer.
19:19 wizzyrea i have seen that
19:19 wizzyrea a checkout/in should clear that
19:19 wizzyrea what version?
19:20 oleonard But I don't even know where the item is... I'm assuming actually in transit between The Plains and Athens
19:20 wizzyrea well it had to have arrived in athens to be marked waiting
19:20 oleonard 3.6.1
19:20 oleonard ...except they say it's not there.
19:20 oleonard (of course they could be wrong)
19:21 wizzyrea I have heard this story before
19:21 wizzyrea all branches should shelf check for it
19:21 wizzyrea :/
19:21 wizzyrea i am trying to remember
19:21 oleonard Maybe Koha needs some kind of "all branches shelf check" management system...
19:22 wizzyrea select * from branchtransfers where itemnumber = x - you should see an un completed transfer
19:22 wizzyrea heh
19:22 wizzyrea we call that the "cattle prod"
19:22 wizzyrea but in the reserves table
19:22 wizzyrea the same reserve will be marked W
19:23 wizzyrea in theory you should never have a w and an uncompleted transfer, unless the item got misrouted along the way
19:23 oleonard 2010-08-10 19:21:32 | PPL        | 2010-08-12 17:49:34 | APL
19:23 wizzyrea whoa...
19:23 wizzyrea there's only the one
19:24 wizzyrea ?
19:24 wizzyrea and it's completed?
19:24 oleonard That's datesent | frombranch | datearrived | tobranch
19:24 wizzyrea oh I wonder, did something happen to the item in between? like, it was moved from one bib to another
19:24 wizzyrea :) I know :)
19:24 oleonard reserves does say W
19:25 wizzyrea is the bibnumber the same on both?
19:25 wizzyrea I guess branchtransfers doesn't tell you
19:25 wizzyrea it only works with items.
19:25 oleonard right
19:25 wizzyrea i saw one a week or so ago
19:25 oleonard but we don't move items from one bib to another
19:25 wizzyrea where there was a really bizarre status sort of like that
19:26 wizzyrea not even in the case of "I accidentally added this duplicate bib"
19:26 wizzyrea "let me move it's items to the right one"
19:26 wizzyrea its*
19:26 wizzyrea (this happens in nexpress all the time)
