03:57 chris      hi Amit
04:53 kmkale     good morning all
05:42 Amit       heya kmkale
05:42 kmkale     hey Amit. How is it going?
05:47 ray        why can't i add a topical term when creating a new marc bibliographic entry ?
05:57 ray        anyone knows?
06:03 ray        hello
06:04 mason      ray: your've prolly got 'use-authorties' on
06:04 ray        so what should i do?
06:05 mason      flick them off in your sysprefs
06:05 ray        what specific preference?
06:07 mason      or you could use authorites too ;)
06:07 mason      takes a little extra admin etc...
06:08 ray        i can't figure it out what authorities are for and how can i make use of them
06:08 mason      them u prolly dont need them :)
06:11 ray        ahm... i tried to look for the demo site of liblime. It accepts new topical term
06:12 ray        and i already checked its preferences
06:14 mason      fyi: looks like the way to flick auths off , is a framework change - not a syspref, my bad
06:15 mason      mysql>  update  marc_subfield_structure set authtypecode = null;
06:15 mason      that should do it
06:16 ray        oops... i think i solved my problem
06:16 mason      im not sure what state the liblime demo site is in
06:16 ray        i just set BiblioAddsAuthorities to on
06:16 ray        thanks for the time
06:17 mason      cool, np
06:18 mason      hmm, perhaps 'BiblioAddsAuthorities' syspref ignores the 'authtypecode' values
06:18 mason      thats sounds like a smart idea
06:21 ray        hehehe.... i just missed it when i compared the preferences in the demo site
06:23 mason      fyi: iirc your koha is probably is quite different than the liblime one your are comparing againist
06:24 ray        i think my koha is in higher version... i'm using 3.0.5
06:25 ray        and the demo site is 3.0.3?
06:25 mason      pass, have a look
06:26 mason      afaik , their demo-koha hasnt been 3.0-stable for ever
06:27 ray        aw... by the way.. is it normal to have a delay in the opac if i turned on the google book jacket option?
06:29 mason      yep, extra request to google for the jackets
06:29 ray        i observed that amazon book cover look up is faster in the demo site but i can't get it to work
06:30 ray        there's a delay of approximately 3-5 seconds and i think that will annoy users
06:31 mason      use squid and a tweaked apache config to help with that
06:32 mason      from NZ google-jackets speed is fine
06:32 ray        ahm.. what's squid and can i configure may apache config file
06:33 mason      sadly... i gotta switch back to some work now-ish
06:33 ray        aw.. ok.. thanks!
06:33 mason      http://www.squid-cache.org/
06:34 mason      google-jackets may not play nicely with proxy-caches
06:35 mason      i havent really checked :/
06:37 ray        ahm ok.
06:58 ray        how can i enable amazon book jacket retrieval?
08:24 CGI456     hello
08:31 hdl_laptop hi CGI456
08:49 CGI456     i have a KOHA installation question
08:50 CGI456     i just installed it on my server... via commandline... what do i do next?
09:11 hdl_laptop run cronjobs and connect to the intranet interface
09:11 mason      and config/test your apache
09:19 CGI456     apache is set up. i installed KOHA on a webserver that's already hosting a website..... i followed the directions on the INSTALL file.
09:20 mason      cool!
09:20 CGI456     but now I don't know where to go next.... how do I login or get into the web interface, or a more general question... what comes next after installing??????
09:20 mason      now, hit it with your web-browser :)
09:21 CGI456     its not in the root...
09:22 mason      have a read of this...
09:22 mason      http://git.koha-community.org/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=koha.git;a=blob;f=INSTALL.debian
09:23 mason      '4. Configure and start Apache'
09:24 mason      check that stuff, on your box
09:24 mason      '6. Run the Web Installer, populate the database, initial configuration of settings'
09:49 CGI456     i think i need a dedicated server for this... i cant edit the apache config file
09:50 mason      set up a debian vm, do it on a test-box
10:11 cait       hi #koha
10:18 chris      hi cait
10:18 Amit       heya cait
10:23 Amit       heya kmkale
10:24 kmkale     hi amit
10:24 Amit       kmkale: how is going on?
10:24 kmkale     good. how about you?
10:25 Amit       same for my side
10:25 Amit       same from my side
10:29 cait       hi chris, Amit and kmkale
10:29 kmkale     hi cait
10:30 kmkale     hi chris
10:33 mpelletier Greetings everyone.  Does anyone know where I can find instructions on cataloging e journals in koha or using koha as a single point of entry type system for electronic journals?
10:38 Amit       mpelletier: i think use 856 tag
11:09 albertos   hi all
11:09 albertos   i would like to ask something about koha
11:09 albertos   i can add as many libs as i want
11:10 albertos   but ... is there a way to limit my opac to search only in one or some of them?
11:10 albertos   the thing we are trying to do is... have some catalogers to insert books in a Test Lib
11:10 albertos   and then edit the entries to go over the main library
11:11 albertos   but untill then... how can we limit the opac search only to the main lib?
11:11 cait       not sure you can really do that, but perhaps searchmylibraryfirst could help?
11:12 cait       I never tested this sys pref, so not sure how it workds
11:12 albertos   searcgmylib is only for registered users i think
11:13 cait       http://koha-community.org/documentation/3-2-manual/?ch=c19#AEN2405
11:13 cait       yes
11:15 albertos   so?
11:15 albertos   is there any solution for this?
11:17 albertos   there is a "single Branch" mode
11:17 albertos   can this help?
11:33 cait       single branch mode is for libraries with only one branch
11:33 cait       it hides the library name from facetted search, advanced search, item table
11:33 cait       etc.
11:33 cait       I does not limit search
11:35 albertos   ημμμ
11:35 albertos   oops
11:36 albertos   is there a way to have this kind of workflow?
11:36 albertos   meaning that entries will have to be confirmed before get published in opac?
11:38 cait       I dont think this is possible right now
11:39 albertos   :-(
11:39 albertos   to bad
11:39 albertos   but...
11:40 albertos   can i change the html post for search to search only in one lib?
11:40 albertos   by adding the some params there?
11:45 cait       not sure, but perhaps this is possible
11:55 albertos   i'll try...
12:48 chris_n    g'morning
12:50 cait       good morning chris_n
13:25 kmkale     hi chris_n
13:27 kmkale     in the label creator, is it possible to search for a range of barcodes? like for example THN-1 to THN-100
13:28 chris_n    kmkale: I'm not sure
13:29 chris_n    but I don't think so atm
13:30 kmkale     does the search box take any wildcards?
13:32 kmkale     whats the standard number in the drop down for?
13:49 cait       hm, I created a folde de-DE in installer and translated all files, deleted my database and wanted to install using German, I was able to select de-DE but now Step 1 is broken, I see the header but nothing else
13:53 cait       I think I solved it by creating the German template files before starting the web installer
14:28 chris_n    kmkale: I'm not sure on either count; I did not write the labels search code and have only fixed a few things in it long ago
14:28 chris_n    it will probably be rewritten for 3.4
14:29 kmkale     chris_n: right. I should add a wish for barcode range selection then for 3.4
14:29 kmkale     or attempt to hack it if nobody else is working on it..
14:32 chris_n    kmkale: probably waiting a bit is best as C4::Search is slated to undergo a major refactor and the labels search relies upon that module
14:32 kmkale     ok.
14:34 kmkale     brb.
14:48 kmkale     back
15:21 kmkale     Bye all. good night
16:58 cait       gmcharlt: around?
16:58 gmcharlt   cait: for a little bit
16:58 cait       hi there :)
16:58 cait       I just finished one of my big projects: translation of all web installer files including marc frameworks
16:58 cait       i get this error message: fatal: 0001-German-web-installer-files-including-translation-of-.patch: 192: patch contains a line longer than 998 characters
16:59 cait       can i just attach the patch to the email in this case or do I need to break the lines?
16:59 gmcharlt   you can attach the patch
16:59 cait       ok
17:00 cait       another question, I saw that there were some patches with new granular permissions
17:01 cait       they are not in git yet, I saw that they were not added to all languages
17:04 cait       userpermissions.sql was not changed for all languages
17:06 gmcharlt   right, those will need to be reconciled
17:07 cait       hm, should I send my patch now or wait until the granular permissions got in?
17:14 cait       gmcharlt: I will send the patch. I will add the new permissions once they are in git. and you can tell me if something more needs to be done or is missing. I did an installation in German with all sample data that worked fine.
17:14 gmcharlt   cait++
17:15 cait       thx! :)
17:15 cait       I started translation of marc21 frameworks months ago, glad I finally finished them
17:17 cait       oh, cant send the mail, message size exceeds maximum
17:38 cait       gmcharlt: sent :)
