I’ve been doing some work on getting Conduit to play nicely with the version of PyGooCanvas found on Feisty. Initially, having no experience in this area at all, it was quite a challenge. Anway, i’ve got it mostly working but the code is now littered with log messages trying to figure out why an arrow won’t render. It’s gotten to the point where i am going to have to try and reproduce the bug outside of conduit, to see if it is a Conduit bug or a GooCanvas bug.
Why does this make bash/*nix rule? Simple. I need to access a PyGooCanvas demo. I know it’s called mv-simple, but i don’t know where it is saved:
john@laptop:~$ locate mv-simple
Not bad, but this is old hat to me these days. What i hadn’t tried before, and made me smile, was:
john@laptop:~$ gedit `locate mv-simple`
And the demo was opened unto gedit, yay! No more copy and pasting the path for me. I also found this one to be helpful… It copies the file to my desktop where I intend to abuse it until I have the same SVG rendering glitch as in Conduit…
john@hx280:~$ cp `locate mv-simple` ./Desktop/
Unfortunately this method only opens the first thing in locates list – ideas on opening all files returned by locate welcomed (Any xargs foo must be well explained O_O)
