03:46 skk following error is coming in patron card creator when we click on patron card an't call method "get_attr" without a package or object reference at /usr/share/koha/intranet/cgi-​bin/patroncards/ line 126.
03:46 skk can we know the answer to this
03:46 rangi what version of Koha are you running?
03:46 skk koha 3.6.4
03:47 rangi you might want to check to see if there is a bug reported for this already, and submit one if not
03:47 rangi i dont know anything about the card creator, but that sounds like a bug
03:48 skk ok i wil check would there be any alternative to create a patron card then
03:48 rangi also checking the release notes for 3.6.5 and 3.6.6 might not hurt it may have been fixed already (3.6.6 was released last week)
03:49 skk ok thx will have a look

09:55 mtompset how long have you been hanging out on #koha?
09:56 mtompset someone else with two nicks? :)
09:56 drojf its just what i get after a disconnect when my ghost is still around
09:57 cait hm
09:57 cait not sure since when exactly, a few years now?
09:58 mtompset I was asking drojf, as our karma seems close.
09:58 mtompset But that's good to know too, cait. :)
09:59 drojf ah sorry, i also thought you meant cait. dont know, a while now
09:59 drojf but i did not do much that would be worth karma. only recently started to sign off stuff and no patch from me yet
10:00 mtompset hey, signoffs are just as important as providing the patches.
10:00 cait true :)
10:00 mtompset there's a process, and everyone in that process is important.
10:00 mtompset not just coders.
10:02 drojf what happened to gbsd?
10:02 cait I think we kinda forgot about it a bit
10:02 mtompset gbsd?
10:02 wahanui well, gbsd is Global Bug Squashing Day
10:02 drojf yeah, thanks wahanui :)
10:02 cait drojf: I was thinking about using the scoreboard next time
10:02 cait or maybe have a topic
10:02 cait or tasks for people to earn points with
10:03 cait something that makes more people do someting on gbsd
10:03 mtompset BTW, Happy Canada Day! :)
10:03 drojf but there is non planned? at least i dont find it on the wiki
10:04 * mtompset waves a maple leaf. :)
10:05 cait drojf: no, i don#t think we set a new date and magnuse is on vacation now for a month or so
10:06 mtompset Vacation?
10:06 mtompset What's that?
10:06 * mtompset grins.
10:06 drojf just wondering because it was done monthly and then stopped after marseille
10:07 cait i think we all got super busy
10:07 cait and it was hard to motivate people
10:07 cait so maybe we need a different approach
10:07 mtompset Isn't that always the case. :(
10:07 drojf should have declared the hackfest in edinburgh a gbsd ;)
10:07 cait the next irc meeting iwll discuss sign off stuff
10:07 cait ... and I am travelling :(
10:07 cait not sure I will be able to attend, probably on a train somewhere
10:08 mtompset when was the last meeting?
10:08 mtompset I'd like to read through the log.
10:08 drojf
10:09 cait the last one was at a bad time - so not many things discussed
10:09 cait lots of things postponed to this meeting
10:09 drojf yes there was not much going on

10:18 mtompset drojf, the answer is install VirtualBox or some other VM emulator.

10:20 cait reports?
10:20 wahanui reports are done by each library, and you can configure it
10:20 mtompset What do you mean generate reports? New ones, or existing ones?
10:20 vlk joined #koha
10:20 cait reports library?
10:20 wahanui reports library is, like, found at[…]L_Reports_Library
10:20 cait there is a collection of sql reports you can look at

10:24 mtompset Last meeting was a good length.
10:25 mtompset Any meeting over an hour starts to get too long.
10:26 mtompset Virtualbox is at
10:27 mtompset You can download the latest version:[…].18-78361-Win.exe
10:27 mtompset But you will need to also download the appropriate OS that you are going to install on.
10:27 mtompset Most of the Koha community is more familiar with Debian.
10:27 mtompset debian?
10:27 wahanui debian is, like, what most people use and there are good manuals and even packages for that
10:28 mtompset Which version is recommended?
10:29 mtompset I know you can get debian at
10:30 mtompset You can get Ubuntu at

11:52 aaa is it user friendly
11:57 drojf mtompset: i think somebody is messing with you
11:59 mtompset I figured if they can't figure out the answers to simple questions after reading the web page, yes, they are.
12:03 jcamins_away Is anyone around who can test 8204 for me?
12:04 jcamins_away rangi reports it not working, but it works for me.
12:05 slef bug 8204
12:05 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8204 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jcamins, Needs Signoff , Authority viewer in OPAC ugly, unfriendly, and mostly useless
12:06 jcamins_away Ah-ha!
12:06 jcamins_away Found the problem.
12:06 jcamins_away Sort of.
12:07 jcamins_away Okay, this is a problem.
12:07 jcamins_away I think I broke my git repo.
12:09 jcamins_away Okay...
12:09 jcamins_away Maybe not.
12:10 jcamins_away Is someone around to open up opac/ and tell me what the names of the TT templates that are being used are?
12:11 jcamins_away I think it's and
12:14 cait_away hi jcamins
12:14 cait_away give me a second - I have to update to master first
12:14 jcamins Thanks.
12:15 cait_away jcamins: opac?
12:15 wahanui hmmm... opac is for patrons
12:15 jcamins Yeah, opac/
12:16 jcamins Line 61 or so.
12:17 cait_away my links work
12:18 cait_away searched for an authority in opac and clicked view full headings
12:18 cait_away link is: http://localhost/cgi-bin/koha/[…]?authid=191594989
12:18 jcamins Oh, no, I want to know what the code says.
12:18 cait_away so now check the pl file for the template names?
12:18 jcamins Right.
12:18 jcamins :)
12:19 cait_away template_name   => $show_marc ? "" : "",
12:19 cait_away guess only one of those does work currently?
12:19 jcamins Right.
12:19 jcamins But neither of those is the one that rangi reports an error with.
12:20 cait_away hm
12:20 cait_away want me to apply your patch?
12:20 cait_away which bug number is it?
12:21 jcamins Bug 8204.
12:21 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8204 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jcamins, Needs Signoff , Authority viewer in OPAC ugly, unfriendly, and mostly useless
12:22 cait_away hm
12:22 cait_away the new view works for me
12:22 cait_away although I think I may have some suggestions :)
12:22 jcamins I suspect rangi forgot to update his git repo, then.
12:23 cait_away maybe
12:23 cait_away http://localhost/cgi-bin/koha/[…]?authid=160087376 works for me after applying your patch
12:43 mtompset Sorry I wasn't looking.
12:43 mtompset I'm off.
12:43 * mtompset waves bye.
12:44 mtompset Going hard drive purchasing tomorrow.
