00:10 mtompset Greetings, papa.
00:11 mtompset If we install sample news, do we expect to only install sample news?
00:12 mtompset (i.e. lose all previous news which may be entered)
00:21 edveal joined #koha
00:25 meliss joined #koha
00:26 wizzyrea I wouldn't make that assumption
00:29 eythian yeah, I shouldn't think so. Seems dangerous.
00:41 mtompset While working on News by Branch, because kf/cait suggested I also edit the other sample_news.sql
00:41 mtompset some had truncate in them!
00:42 mtompset (for each language, I had only done english)
00:45 mtompset I figure if someone attempted to run one of those language specific ones, they get hit with the truncate and that would be bad.
00:45 mtompset I'm trying to make them all similar.
00:53 edveal joined #koha
00:56 wizzyrea seems sensible
01:22 rambutan joined #koha
01:35 papa greetings mtompset
01:36 mtompset Oh, and greetings, eythian and wizzyrea. Thanks for the feedback.
01:36 eythian hi
01:36 YoungLibrarian joined #koha
01:36 * wizzyrea waves
01:36 mtompset Hmm...
01:37 pastebot "mtompset" at pasted "What would you expect?" (9 lines) at
01:37 mtompset Next question that I need to figure out. :)
01:37 YoungLibrarian Hello all. I was just wondering if Koha has an associated Spine Label creator or what other librarians use to create spine labels with Koha.
01:38 wizzyrea it does have a spine label creator, it's under tools -> label creator
01:39 * dcook thinks there might also be a fast spine label generator from the detail page as well
01:39 wizzyrea there is, I think it's for a very limited workflow though
01:39 mtompset Greetings, dcook.
01:40 YoungLibrarian Is it user friendly? The cataloger here is used to using the Voyager Spine Label creator and very hard to convience to move to another program...
01:40 eythian mtompset: probably that you'd end up with all the news items.
01:41 ebegin joined #koha
01:41 mtompset Actually, you don't, and that's why I'm asking.
01:41 mtompset The idnews field is autoincrement, but some of the files actually attempt to insert specific idnews numbers.
01:41 dcook hey mtompset
01:41 wahanui mtompset is probably catching up in the non-coding aspects of his ministry.
01:41 wizzyrea remind them that change is the only constant. As to it's user friendliness, once it's set up it's not bad, no.
01:42 dcook Also, you could try out a demo:
01:42 YoungLibrarian Does anyone know the VgerSpin program or how similar it is to the Koha spine label program?
01:43 edveal joined #koha
01:43 * wizzyrea tries desperately not to know anything about voyager.
01:44 YoungLibrarian Very smart idea! LOL
01:46 YoungLibrarian Okay, well thank you everyone. I'll look into the Spine Label creator under Tools as soon as I can convience someone with more privligies to log in for me. :D

02:10 mtj oooh ->
02:19 bag heya mtj
02:20 bag man I dislike being a day behind you NZ peeps - I was thinking that I could see the hobbit tonight at 12:01am - but also being here the Hobbit doesn't open untli the 13th here
02:21 bag anyways cool news about the trademark
02:21 bag I didn't get into work today until like 4pm (poor gingin still has a high fever)
02:22 mtj hey baggins
02:23 wizzyrea poor ginny
02:24 eythian bag: it came out in Europe about 12 hours _before_ it came out here, which is hardly fair.
02:24 bag booo
02:24 bag I know wizzyrea is going your today is eythian going your today too?
02:25 eythian No, I'm not.
02:25 bag ah
02:25 eythian wait, I thought it was first thing this morning here.
02:25 wizzyrea it was
02:25 eythian ah, good, not crazy then :)
02:25 bag mtj you a movie goer?
02:25 wizzyrea 1201 was the first showing
02:25 eythian I will probably see it in the next week or so
02:25 wizzyrea we are going tonight :P
02:25 bag 0001 was the first showing :P
02:25 bag heh
02:25 wizzyrea ok fine. geez.
02:26 wizzyrea pack of jokers round here.
02:26 bag it's 0001 2013-12-13 here though
02:26 eythian oh, thought you were going to the midnight one.
02:26 wizzyrea naw
02:26 wizzyrea was yesterday ;0
02:26 wizzyrea ;)
02:26 wizzyrea well early today.
02:27 wizzyrea for you jokers.
02:30 mtompset bag: Really? There's a Thursday showing here in my tiny town of Bolton. ;)
02:31 bag the US release date is 2013-12-13
02:32 mtompset It is here in Canada too, but there's a pre-release show date here. :)
02:32 bag no pre-release here
02:33 mtompset So, next question, other than the "why does fixing one thing highlight a problem elsewhere?"...
02:33 mtompset Let's say I went crazy and ran all the sample_news.sql files available.
02:34 mtompset This means that we have news for language interfaces which may not be installed.
02:34 mtompset 1) Should I cover that case?
02:34 mtompset 2) If so, how?
02:35 mtompset Particularly, since I only have the default English installed for staff and opac.
02:36 mtompset Any suggestions?
02:36 wahanui Any suggestions are welcome.
02:36 mtompset Yes, yes they are. :)
02:37 mtompset The filter dropdowns are limited by installed languages. Should they be limited by installed languages as well as news languages?
02:43 mtj bag, i do try and avoid cinemas these days, except for 'very special' occasions
02:44 mtj …but, i'm enuff of a LOTR fan to consider those movies special :)
02:47 mtj ^^...that and any Segal new release
02:48 mtj heh seagal
02:48 bag HA
02:48 eythian steven seagull
02:49 eythian <-- specifically, this
02:56 trea oh steven seagull
02:58 mtj woah, that looks like a thursday arvo rabbit hole
02:59 mtj Van Canto, bringing German cappella metal to the next level...
03:42 mtj .
03:43 mtj peeps, does anyone have any theories about this common(ish) error...
03:43 mtj # koha-shell koha1
03:43 mtj bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device
03:43 mtj bash: no job control in this shell
03:43 mtj .
03:44 mtj i've got a new debian VM, thats got this bug ^^ - its a real drag… :/
03:45 mtj ...anyone got a work-around?
03:46 dcook Is it actually causing a problem, mtj?
03:46 mtj for me, yeah
03:46 dcook I thought that I'd seen that before and it didn't cause any issues. Hmm...let me see
03:46 dcook Oh wait, I don't have Koha on my Debian VM atm...
03:47 dcook Sorry. I'm no help today :/
03:47 mtj the koha-user's shell is kinda b*rked - with broken job control
03:48 jcamins mtj: don't use a login shell.
03:48 wizzyrea he means koha-shell
03:48 mtj hmm, whats the alt. then?
03:48 wizzyrea i'd file a bug, in truth.
03:49 mtj wizzyrea, 'he' is me, or jcamins ?
03:49 mtompset sudo -i then su - {instance}-koha?
03:49 jcamins mtj: don't use -l.
03:49 * mtompset is just thinking out loud. :)
03:50 * wizzyrea thinks we should just fix koha-shell.
03:50 jcamins wizzyrea: we can't.
03:50 jcamins[…]rt.cgi?bug=659878
03:51 mtj hmmm … i dont use the '-l' arg
03:51 jcamins Actually, that's weird.
03:51 jcamins mtj: add -v?
03:52 mtj hey mtompset++, your idea works fine, afaict :p
03:52 jcamins I was thinking -l added - to the command line, but it looks like it doesn't.
03:52 mtj so, thats a decent workaroud for me… very. happy  :)
03:54 mtj wizzyrea, i plan to file a bug on it
03:54 mtj the catch is… i think its a deeper debian tty bug
03:54 wizzyrea apparently.
03:56 mtj but hey, swapping koha-shell to just use 'su -l koha_foo' for a shell , could be perfect and easy fix
03:56 mtj i'll do a little more testing with it, this arvo
03:57 eythian then use koha-shell -l
03:57 mtj oops, missed jcamins link above ^^
03:58 mtj eythian, i did try that before - problem still exists :/
03:59 eythian in that case, making koha-shell use su -l probably won't help, as that's all that that does.
03:59 papa joined #koha
03:59 jcamins eythian: yeah, I thought -l added - --login, but it's just --login.
04:00 eythian for su, - == --login
04:01 eythian I suspect the complication is that I have to run a command to set up the environment and then invoke the shell, and that makes it unhappy.
04:01 eythian I mostly just use it to run commands anyway.
04:01 mtj i cant explain why… but it does fix the bug, on my fresh debian-7 VM
04:02 eythian but it does an identical thing to adding -l to koha-shell
04:02 eythian print out the command actually run, there might be a difference there.
04:04 pastebot "mtj" at pasted "koha-shell fix..." (11 lines) at
04:04 eythian that's not the same thing.
04:04 eythian in one you use koha-shell, in the other you use su.
04:05 mtj well…
04:06 mtj patch koha-shell to use 'su -l foofoo' , then (afaict) the bug is fixed
04:06 eythian it isn't
04:06 mtj ok, explain to me why
04:06 eythian $ sudo su -l -c "env A=foo /bin/bash"
04:06 eythian [sudo] password for robin:
04:06 eythian bash: kan procesgroep (-1) van terminal niet instellen: Ongepaste ioctl() voor apparaat
04:06 eythian bash: er is geen taakbesturing in deze shell
04:06 eythian root@zarathud:~#
04:06 eythian that's what's going on.
04:06 eythian not your example
04:08 mtj my bug is a shell with broken job control
04:09 eythian yes, that's what that says
04:09 eythian it's the same error
04:09 mtj mtompset's suggestion gives me a shell without broken job control
04:09 eythian the point of koha-shell is to set up your koha environment appropriately.
04:09 mtj mtompset's suggestion fixes my bug
04:09 eythian if you use su, then you don't get the benefit of that.
04:09 mtj mtompset's suggestion seems to do that, afaick
04:10 eythian no it doesn't
04:10 mtompset Yes, but if you have your environment variables in /etc/environment, then that isn't an issue.
04:10 eythian mtompset: you can't do that
04:10 eythian well, you can
04:10 mtompset But it isn't the best way to do it.
04:10 eythian but not if you have >1 instance on a machine
04:10 mtompset Exactly.
04:11 mtompset Though, you could always add export blah blah into the users .profile
04:11 mtompset then then su - to it should catch it.
04:11 mtompset (doesn't .profile run on an su -)
04:11 eythian problem then is that it wouldn't work if you don't want a login shell
04:11 mtj eythian, the curicial bit..
04:11 mtj whats the difference in the new shells enviroment?
04:12 eythian KOHA_CONF and PERL5LIB are set properly
04:12 eythian and you are the right user
04:12 mtompset That is the main point of using koha-shell. :)
04:13 mtj afaik, both methods are identical
04:13 mtompset probably because of how you sent up your environment variables.
04:13 mtj aaah, i take that back :p
04:13 mtj i missed the difference :/
04:14 mtj meh
04:14 mtj so close
04:14 mtompset What is the difference?
04:14 wahanui i think the difference is with the package the upgrade is more-or-less foolproof.
04:14 eythian :)
04:14 mtompset so close and yet so far, wahanui.
04:14 wahanui mtompset: i'm not following you...
04:14 mtompset Exactly.
04:15 mtj in 'su -l foofoo' both KOHA_CONF and PERL5LIB are not set
04:15 mtompset Right.
04:15 eythian in fact, if they were set before, they won't be now.
04:15 mtompset But that information should be easy enough to fix. :)
04:15 mtj mtompset, yeah surely
04:16 mtompset That's why I was mentioning perhaps adding them to the .profile
04:16 mtompset so that if you did this method, it should properly set them. :)
04:16 mtompset but as eythian pointed out, without the login shell, you aren't going to trigger the .profile.
04:16 mtj yep, i was thinking something similar ^^
04:17 mtompset which is why I also mentioned /etc/environment...
04:17 mtompset which is *BAD* if you have multiple instances.
04:18 * mtj isnt super hot with shell/env stuff
04:18 mtj eythian, thanks for the brain-slap
04:19 eythian :)
04:19 mtj i'll see if i can futz some better fix for it
04:19 mtompset or you can write a shell script in some accessible location to set the env variables for you. :)
04:19 eythian I don't think you can do that
04:20 mtj $ sudo su -l -c "env A=foo /bin/bash"
04:22 mtj weird, the ioctl error is seems to be caused by the 'env A=foo' stuff, before the /bin/bash bit...
04:23 eythian nope, it's the -c stuff
04:23 eythian $ sudo su -l -c "/bin/bash"
04:23 eythian bash: kan procesgroep (-1) van terminal niet instellen: Ongepaste ioctl() voor apparaat
04:23 mtj aah, ok
04:24 mtj mucho thanks
04:27 eythian does the Koha stuff client have keyboard shortcuts?
04:29 mtj yeah, afaik
04:30 mtj the staff circ screens have(had?) shortcut.js stuff
04:30 eythian cool

05:17 dcook Making Windows a bit more bearable...
05:19 mtompset Have you tried getting Koha to run in cygwin? ;)
05:20 dcook At this point, all I've really done with cygwin is use rsync, ssh, grep, and find.
05:24 dcook Yay! Down to 6 messages in my work inbox.
05:41 eythian does Koha allow self-registration yet?
05:42 eythian I know it is/was in development, but can't remember if it's in yet.
05:42 rangi i think it might be in 3.14
05:42 eythian cool
05:42 rangi but dont quote me on that
05:42 rangi ive had enough of that today :)
05:42 eythian I'll say yes, worst case, we fix up the patch :)
05:43 rangi *nod*
05:52 mtompset self-registration? I thought it was in 3.12
05:52 mtompset There's a whole self-registration section in OPAC system preferences.
05:53 mtompset In fact, that's what I hooked into partly for the external authentication patch.
05:53 mtompset Of course, I won't submit it, since it requires writing middle-ware.
06:01 eythian good to know

07:30 paxed ^ is that "Tag Editor" visible for users somewhere? if so, it needs to be translatable.
07:32 rangi evening
07:33 cait hi rangi
07:34 cait it's a tooltip
07:35 cait you can break it up and add _("")
07:35 cait hm also
07:35 cait if it's in the javascript...
07:35 cait might just be already translatable
07:35 cait if it's in the html

07:38 reiveune hello
07:38 wahanui niihau, reiveune
07:38 magnuse i had about 30 minutes too little for the hackfest, so everyone did not get around to submitting a patch :-(
07:38 cait ooh
07:39 magnuse there were interesting talks
07:39 cait maybe you can do a followup?
07:39 magnuse lots of chatter in the breaks
07:39 cait sounds good :)
07:39 magnuse yeah, i'll see if they are interested in finnishing what we started
07:40 magnuse oslo public library did an absolutely stunning talk about their needs and plans for infrastructure as they prepare for moving into a new main library
07:42 cait :)
07:49 paxed cait: i've done "git pull" - shouldn't that be enough? I don't see that "Tag Editor" string in any po-file.
07:52 cait1 joined #koha
07:52 magnuse two caits - woohoo!
07:54 magnuse awww...
07:55 rangi paxed: no
07:55 rangi that wont be enough
07:55 cait1 and what did this one miss?
07:55 cait1 interent here is a bit grumpy at tims
07:55 cait1 internet even
07:56 cait1 paxed: no, the po files only get updated before releases, you would need to do 'perl translate update <langcode>
07:56 cait1 what are you translating? master or 3.14?
08:08 rambutan joined #koha
08:08 laurence joined #koha
08:10 marcelr joined #koha
08:14 paxed cait1: i've got master on my desktop, but 3.14 + some changes on the server (which is the one i translate)
08:14 cait1 ah right
08:14 cait1 title attributes are translatable, you can see it if you go into the cataloguing editor
08:15 cait1 and mouse over the other symbols
08:15 cait1 so that hsould be alright
08:15 cait1 every time the templates get changed you need to update the po file, we don't do that regularly on master
08:15 paxed ...ah, but you mean templates. that title attribute is in a perl file.
08:15 cait1 only the translation manager does it before a release and puts the files on pootle that are then pushed before release
08:15 cait1 ew.
08:16 cait1 well then it's not translatable. sounds a bit weird
08:16 gaetan_B joined #koha
08:16 gaetan_B hello
08:17 paxed the same string is in authorities/, C4/, cataloguing/ and tools/

08:38 Herwig joined #koha
08:47 Herwig Question i activated OAI-PMH for an external database to harvest our koha ... now they ask to fill up field 001 and 003 ... 001 with an unique number that identify's the marc record 003 with our institution name ... anny tips how that is best done 001 and 003 are empty at the moment
08:50 magnuse Herwig: i have some xslt lying around...
08:51 Herwig ok what does xslt do and where i use it (sorry dont know)
08:51 magnuse Herwig:
08:52 magnuse let me see if i can give you some pointers
08:52 Herwig ok
08:54 magnuse ooh, it's a bit tricky...
08:54 Herwig lol ok i try to learn the tricky way
08:55 magnuse you have to create a config file similar to this: http://manual.koha-community.o[…]/webservices.html on your server. in that file you have to point to an xslt file similar to the one i linked to above, which does the actual transformation of the records when they are harvested through oai-pmh
08:57 Herwig is that the one i have to point at in the OAI-PMH:ConfFile filed
08:57 Herwig field
08:58 magnuse yes, you use OAI-PMH:ConfFile to point to the config file (and in the config file you point to the xslt)
08:59 Herwig ok i start investigating that  ... question  2 what do i best take as unique identifier (future field 001)
09:01 Herwig can i use the record number somehow ?
09:02 magnuse in the xslt i linked to, the biblionumber is taken from 999c and put in 001
09:04 Herwig magnuse i gonna try now thx for the info maybe ill be back (in panic) thx for the info for now
09:05 magnuse Herwig: no problem!

09:48 Viktor Hi :)
09:48 Viktor Quite a bit better magnuse
09:49 Viktor I can limp around in a decent pace :)
09:49 cait1 oh
09:49 cait1 hope you are well soon
09:49 Viktor Thanks :)
09:49 magnuse good to hear it is moving the right direction
09:49 magnuse krya på dig!
09:49 Viktor Tack :)
09:50 Viktor How are you all?
09:50 Viktor I've been offline from irc for a while.
09:50 Viktor A bit out of the loop with how everything is moving along and how you guys are doing
10:01 magnuse yeah, never stay away for too long ;-)

10:33 cait1 Viktor: sorry, helping my dad selling my childhood on ebay...
10:34 cait1 bit on and off today :)
10:40 paxed is there a database table that lists a parsed version of the biblio marcxml?
10:41 magnuse paxed: what do you mean by "a parsed version"?
10:43 paxed in evergreen, i can do select * from metabib.real_full_rec where tag='100' and subfield='a' and value like '%tolkien%';
10:45 paxed looking for something similar, so i could do a query on any arbitrary marc field without needing to parse the marcxml with perl.
10:45 magnuse did you see[…]ibrary#Query_MARC ?
10:46 Viktor cait1 Hope you get a good price. I usually take a photo and get rid of the actual thing to keep the memory :)
10:47 paxed magnuse: no, i did not. i guess that'll have to do...
10:48 cait1 Viktor: similar thing here... and by selling i at least hope it goes to a kid playing with it - better than throwing out things :)

15:01 pablito hi all
15:02 pablito i have persistent problem that's been bugging me for a few weeks
15:02 pablito hopefully you can help me
15:02 pablito I have Koha 3.14 running on the latest Ubuntu Server
15:03 pablito I've import 36000+ records of books
15:03 pablito but on OPAC search, the call number doesn't show
15:03 pablito it shows on the MARC View under "Full Call Number"
15:03 pablito but not on the search results view
15:04 pablito I tagged the call number field with 952$o
15:04 pablito anyone have an idea, how I can resolve this beside reinstalling Koha?
15:05 jcamins pablito: you did a full reindex, right?
15:05 pablito yes
15:05 jcamins Okay, then I don't have any ideas.
15:06 pablito well, what parameters would you use to do the full reindex?

17:08 gisjason How do I apply a patch to koha (without manually editing each file) when we do not have our koha installation in git?
17:09 gisjason Or, is it possible to place our currently installed koha into git?  The installation instructions I have found say to install git first
17:11 gisjason This thread states that if we are not under version control to do it by hand: http://koha.1045719.n5.nabble.[…]ch-td3296080.html   but the patch is rather cumbersome:[…]21762&action=diff
17:11 gisjason Thoughts?  TIA

17:12 cait how did you install koha?

17:12 cait which?
17:12 wahanui hmmm... which is quite horrible
17:13 gisjason looking for the link now
17:13 cait hm you want z39.50 for authorities?
17:13 cait why don't you update to a current Koha version?
17:14 cait you might want to wait a bit longer, but it's included in 3.14
17:14 cait it's also likely depending on your current version that the patch won't apply cleanly
17:14 gaetan_B bye!

17:18 wahanui packages is, like, at

17:21 druthb That's the second person that's fallen prey to wahanui today!
17:21 oleonard Oh sorry gisjason I didn't read back.
17:22 gisjason i like cookies.  this patch oleonard:[…]21762&action=diff

17:25 gisjason looking for upgrade procedure on wiki....
17:25 * gisjason has weak google-fu today
17:25 jcamins gisjason: it looks like that went into 3.14, so you can follow the instructions wahanui shared earlier.
17:34 gisjason this is what I was missing: "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"  because I didn't notice that apt-get upgrade was skipping koha-common.
17:34 gisjason thanks for all your help everyone.  this is an amazing community!
17:36 gisjason and I always fall prey to the bots.  it is one of my weaknesses.  like capitalization in IRC

23:41 wizzyrea 245c, it doesn't currently show in the OPAC, but it should, right?
23:42 wizzyrea suppose you can add anything you want as long as it's got a span round it that would let it be made invisible.
23:45 dcook joined #koha
23:55 mtompset when you say doesn't show in OPAC are you talking about detail, marc, or isbd views?
23:58 mtompset visibility should not necessarily depend on CSS alone, but should be thought about in terms of information sent to the template file.
