  • Title: Goals - F-Spot
    Descriptive info: F-Spot Vision Statement.. F-Spot is a cross platform application for organizing thousands of photos.. It shuns 'organizing in folders.. ' instead, metadata is the basis for viewing and drilling down the collection.. Adding and maintaining metadata is easy and enjoyable in F-Spot.. Individual photos can be retouched and globally corrected (e.. dynamic range, color), for sharing via the  ...   correction scales to the the ambition of users.. An advanced form of corrections is that of batches of photos.. Beginners in the digital photo field can easily start using F-Spot.. These and more advanced users are encouraged by F-Spot to grow their skills, to the point where they integrate more specialized photo manipulation software into their F-Spot workflow..

  • Title: GtkBuilder Transition - F-Spot
    Descriptive info: libglade to GtkBuilder transition.. As of GNOME 3.. 0, libglade will be deprecated in favor of GtkBuilder.. F-Spot still has quite a few glade dialogs, which need to be converted.. Fortunately, this is not a very hard task and you can help out if you want.. As always, the F-Spot developers are there to help you when you are stuck (either through bugzilla, the mailing list or IRC).. You can find the list of open GtkBuilder conversion tasks here:.. GtkBuilder transition bugs.. All bugs are marked with.. [GtkBuilder transition].. Add a comment to the bug you want to work on so we can assign it to you, this avoids duplicate work.. Also let us know if you are no longer working on it, then we can assign it to someone else.. Please don't go crazy and do everything in one afternoon, this is mostly aimed at inviting new people, so one bug per person please! There are.. plenty.. of other F-Spot bugs that need fixing if you are looking for a challenge :-).. Before we start.. You will need a fully built F-Spot from git.. Information on how to do this is available on.. this page.. Make sure you can build and test it.. You will also need to install.. glade-3.. Step 1: Extract the dialog.. Note: Ignore this step if you are working on converting an extension.. Each bug contains the name of the dialog.. The first thing you need to do is to extract that dialog out of the main.. f-spot.. glade.. file.. Open up your text editor and open.. This is an enormous XML file, so use the search function or your text editor to find the name of your dialog.. You will see a line like this one (the line below is for the.. version_name_dialog.. widget):.. widget class="GtkDialog" id="version_name_dialog".. Start copying from that line on (including that line), all the way down to the matching.. /widget.. tag.. Look at the indentation to find the matching tag.. Then open up a new file called.. tmp.. and paste the blob of XML you just copied in there.. Put the following fragment above the pasted code:.. ?xml version= 1.. 0 encoding= UTF-8 standalone= no ? !DOCTYPE glade-interface SYSTEM glade-2.. 0.. dtd !--*- mode: xml -*-- glade-interface requires lib= canvas / requires lib= gnome /.. And put the following fragment below it:.. /glade-interface.. Save and close! We have now extracted the widget from f-spot.. Now open f-spot.. glade using.. glade-3 f-spot.. , look for the right widget in the top-right selector and see what it looks like (warning: it may look pretty bad, we will fix that later on).. Then open your newly created.. , it should look the same.. Looks the same? you can now delete the widget from.. (again, use your text editor or the whole file will be changed).. Let's continue!.. Step 2: From.. to.. ui.. Open your new.. using.. Go to.. Edit - Preferences.. and select toolkit version  ...   is a subclass of.. GladeDialog.. Change this to.. BuilderDialog.. If you compile now, there will be a warning that.. has no constructor that takes one parameter.. You will need to add the name of the.. file as a parameter.. Fix it like this:.. OLD: public VersionNameRequest (.. ) : base ("version_name_dialog") NEW: public VersionNameRequest (.. ) : base (.. "version_name_dialog.. ui",.. "version_name_dialog").. Compile again and you might notice warnings such as:.. /PhotoVersionCommands.. cs(59,38): error CS1061: Type `PhotoVersionCommands.. VersionNameRequest' does not contain a definition for `Dialog' and no extension method `Dialog' of type `PhotoVersionCommands.. VersionNameRequest' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?).. Here we simply need to remove the.. Dialog.. bits (this is a change in behavior between.. OLD: this.. Dialog.. Title = Catalog.. GetString ("Create New Version"); NEW: this.. GetString ("Create New Version");.. The last step is replacing the.. [Glade.. Widget].. attributes by.. [GtkBeans.. Builder.. Object].. OLD: [Glade.. Widget] private Button ok_button; NEW: [GtkBeans.. Object] private Button ok_button;.. Step 4: Test!.. All done! Everything should compile now (if not, let me know).. Start your freshly built F-Spot and test if everything still works.. Step 5: Submit your work.. Time to make a patch.. Look at the output of.. git status.. :.. $ git status # On branch master # Changed but not updated: # (use git add file.. to update what will be committed) # (use git checkout -- file.. to discard changes in working directory) # # modified: src/Makefile.. am # modified: src/PhotoVersionCommands.. cs # modified: src/f-spot.. glade # # Untracked files: # (use git add file.. to include in what will be committed) # # src/tmp.. glade # src/ui/version_name_dialog.. ui no changes added to commit (use git add and/or git commit -a ).. First thing to notice:.. is still there.. Delete it.. Then add the new.. to git:.. git add src/ui/version_name_dialog.. ui.. Create a new branch for your work:.. $ git checkout -b gtkbuilder M src/Makefile.. am M src/PhotoVersionCommands.. cs M src/f-spot.. glade A src/ui/version_name_dialog.. ui Switched to a new branch 'gtkbuilder'.. Then commit using.. git commit -a.. Write a short one line summary on the first line, leave a blank line and write more information on the lines below, if needed.. Create a patch:.. git format-patch master.. And attach the created.. patch.. file to the bug! It's that simple.. To switch back to the master branch, use.. git checkout master.. Your code is still in your own branch (suppose you need it later to adjust some things), but you can also use.. git pull --rebase.. and test master without having to worry about clashes between your work and the work others do.. For more info about git, I recommend.. Git from the bottom up.. Thanks for your work! You just made F-Spot slightly more awesome and ready for GNOME 3.. 0!.. Stuck?.. Stuck? Not sure how to do something? We are there to help, just ask us through the mailing list or IRC..

  • Title: How To Build from HEAD - F-Spot
    Descriptive info: How to Build F-Spot from GIT.. This page has evolved from my own personal notes, so please feel free to update it to be more consistent and accurate.. Hopefully it will help people who do not have to much experience with GIT and compiling from GIT to participate a bit more.. WARNING.. Please ensure you have a good set of backup of your F-Spot database (~/.. db) as well as your actual photos (~/Photos).. When you are using Master/Head from GIT it is not as thorougly tested as the stable version.. We do our best to ensure no critical errors will slip through, but sometimes it might happen.. Also, Master/Head version might have changed the F-Spot database structure a bit, which means that your stable version of F-Spot will not be able to use it anymore.. So to be safe, we.. strongly.. recommend you to run on test data.. That is use the --basedir and --photodir options.. In this example I put both under /tmp, but you can specify whatever.. Backup photos.. cp ~/.. db ~/.. Stable.. Install the pre-requisite packages.. You need GIT client as well as the usual build tools before proceeding.. On Ubuntu, you need to run the following  ...   2.. 2 in your distribution.. Ubuntu Jaunty users may get.. mono 2.. 4 from PPA.. Build.. Go to trunk directory.. cd f-spot.. Configure and autogen.. /autogen.. sh --prefix=$HOME/unstable/f-spot --disable-scrollkeeper.. At this point, it is likely that the.. configure.. script will notify you of further dependencies.. Install the missing software, and repeat the autogen command until it is successful.. Compile.. make all.. Install.. If you are in the src directory, please go to the main f-spot directory (cd.. ).. make install.. (You can alternatively combine the.. into one command).. make all install.. If the make install fails with a reference to.. make[1]: Entering directory `.. /f-spot/po' make[1]: install_sh@: Command not found make[1]: *** [install-data-yes] Error 127.. Please check.. bug 351522.. for a workaround/solution.. Run.. Run GIT Install.. cd ${HOME}/unstable/f-spot/bin.. /f-spot --basedir /tmp --photodir /tmp.. Update from GIT.. As changes are made to f-spot, you can now get the latest version by running the following:.. cd ~/development/f-spot git pull.. Compile and test run the new version.. make all make install cd ~/unstable/f-spot/bin.. A quick way of running.. If only the f-spot core src files have been modified, there is no need to do a proper 'make install'.. Instead you can run it uninstalled:.. make run..
