|0000692||Gnome Inform application||[IDEs] Installing Extensions||public||2011-07-07 19:00||2014-05-07 07:40|
|Platform||x86-64||OS||OpenSUSE Linux||OS Version||11.4|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0000692: IDE fails to recognize Inform7 extensions when asked to install one|
|Description||Compiled gnome-inform7 from the trunk code, most recently on 7 JUL 2011. The program appears to compile and install properly. Two things are anomalous:|
1. The eyecandy graphics are missing from the opening dialogue (new project-existing project-last project).
2. Attempts to install an extension file fail with the message (e.g.):
The file '/home/michael/Downloads/Computers.i7x' does not seem to be an extension. Extensions should be saved as UTF-8 text format files, and should start with a line of one of these forms:
<Extension> by <Author> begins here.
Version <Version> of <Extension> by <Author> begins here.
This obviously was tried with Emily Short's Computers, but others fail as well. The extension file itself is correct and if manually added to the proper inform directory, it will include and compile properly. Only the install routine fails to recognize it.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
I've verified that this also happens with the earlier distribution of openSUSE:
Linux 18.104.22.168-0.2-desktop x86_64, openSUSE 11.3 (x86_64). Different machine, same architecture. Different extension file (Secret Doors by Andrew Owen version 1).
In this test, however, although the serious problem (failure to install new extensions) persists, the trivial problem (graphic elements don't display in opening dialogue) goes away. Kind of odd.
In the code file app.c, function is_valid_extension, at line 336 or thereabouts:
if(!g_regex_match(app->regices[I7_APP_REGEX_EXTENSION], text, 0, &match))
the value of app->regices[I7_APP_REGEX_EXTENSION] looks like it might be an empty string which perhaps causes this function to return FALSE?
I am recommending that this be severely modified and downgraded in severity to "mildly annoying" because the main problem in my build is that I absent-mindedly built the program in the "trunk" hierarchy instead of "tags/6G60". In the latter build, the problem with installing extensions goes away. I really need to drink more coffee. Or just drink more.
OTOH, the minor irritant, that the graphic background goes missing from the welcome dialog, is still a (minor) issue.
|Can't reproduce the opening graphic issue, but the extension recognition problem is solved.|
