[haiku-development] Re: Not sure about what this means... (Barrett)

Wed, 2014-03-19 19:45
There's a large number of printers listed, with checkmarks next to all of them, but based on the intro above, I'm not sure whether the checkmarks all mean theoretical support or proven support. Anybody have any idea how to interpret this? Means that theoretically (i.e. by design of gutenprint) any printer with any BUS could be supported, but in pratice will work only the ones where the BUS is existing in Haiku. So as far as i can understand, you should be ...

[haiku-development] Not sure about what this means... (Dane Scott - TuneTracker Systems)

Wed, 2014-03-19 11:45
From the Haiku compatibility database: Most printer support in Haiku is achieved via a Gutenprint port. Please note! Although all printers here are theoretically supported, the only ones that will work are the ones for which an existing transport add-on exists; i.e USB. For example, your parallel port printer is supported, but won't work because there's no parallel port driver in Haiku (yet) - your USB printer (listed here) will because there is a USB transport add-on and driver for Haiku. There's a large number of printers listed, with checkmarks next to all of them, ...

[haiku-development] Re: B_USE_* values (Kacper Kasper)

2014-02-23 17:23 GMT+01:00 John Scipione jscipione@xxxxxxxxx: I'm afraid I'm not very familiar with B_USE_WINDOW_INSETS either so I don't know if that should be used as the insets of a BBox or if you should specify B_USE_DEFAULT_SPACING there. I had similar doubts but I think it should be B_USE_WINDOW_INSETS because: 1) BBox is similar in concept to BWindow (it contains controls) 2) if we wanted to make B_USE_DEFAULT_SPACING bigger we don't have to worry about BBox insets becoming ridiculously large and inconsistent ...

[haiku-development] Duplicate tickets, adding reporter to CC field? (Matt Madia)

Hi all, When a ticket is closed as a duplicate, should we start adding the reporter to the CC field of the original ticket? This seems like it would help.
