You all thought I was done with LoserJabber, eh?|
Well, there are a few new features coming along.
Changes in CVS:
- New history dialog being written, which doesn't do much, yet.
- Web links are now maintained on the server, and sent as part of the login process.
But the real reason for an update is this:
A shot of LoserJabber on MacOSX. (300+kb PNG)
It isn't really *running* on OSX, just using the X server, but it's still neat to look at. I apologize for the font, too. Another limitation of X, in a sense.
is the server sending the weblinks? when i run the latest CVS, there is no menus that work. everything is greyed out.

It works for me.
Did you log in, first?
Turn on the "dump network data on stdout" debug option in the settings, then look at the console output.
It should have some lines containing URLs (the menu data). If it doesn't, we must talk. :)
turned on 'dump to stdout'. when i log on, i do receive the web links. all the menu data is received.
i do have friends groups there. would that cause a problem?
i know them personally
it looks all normal (of course, i don't actually know what it's suppose to look like) but yea, that looks ok.
i tried logging in as test and it works. what could be different?

It turns out that the menu code only worked if you had access to multiple journals. (Do these seem really unrelated? Yes. Is this a sign of bad code? Definitely.)
Check the new CVS. It should work.
excellent. you da man.
on a side note:
let me know when you are available today.
"new" psiek tonight
um.. something else to note. when a user logs out, it doesn't seem to clear the menus. i log into test, the menus work. then i log out and log in as me, the menus are still test's.
I just brought the client down last night.. Love the install, nice and sweet. I was wondering though, any thoughts on being able to post journals through a bash terminal?

Try running "loserjabber --help" from a terminal. :)
Let me know how well it works. It's sorta untested... I keep breaking it.

Heh, Already tried that. Here was the response:
** ERROR **: GTK init failed -- are you in X?
I guess I should say that I'm not running X when I run this. Its either true terminal or ssh from a box that is neither running loserjabber or the win32/livejournal.

LoserJabber's network interface is pretty entangled with GTK, which requires X.
We deliberated a bit on this, and decided if you just want to post entries, you can use the perl client.
I may change this in the future, though.
In the meantime, running loserjabber from the command line still works while in X (or while your X display is set properly, for example, when SSH'ing in to a remote machine with X11 forwarding).

Ah, Perl Client. I had completely forgotten about that one.. I think thats probably what I'm really after if I want to do it from shell.
uuuuugh... if you know who got it to compile, please send them my way. I'm having trouble
with libdl and need to know where he/she got the libs from. *grumbles at apple for not including a good set of libs*... who cares if they're ELF libs and OSX/Darwin doesn't use ELF =P
