[sip-comm-dev] set of cosmetic bugs


#1

Hello guys.

There are several cosmetic issues which I could report on ubuntu 10.04:

- - weird outlook of "options" window
  I use non default theme with light-gray font and dark background. SC takes
appropriate font color but keeps it's white background which renders window
unreadable. It should either completely respect user's look-n-feel (preferable of
course) or completely ignore it. This seems like a big issue to me.

- - lack of codec info
  In a call window there is no information about audio\video codecs used. It would be
nice to have one more button "i" (in addition to mute etc) which would display it as
well as some other info like bandwidth, packet loss etc. That's a minor issue but it
could be of a great help for future debugging and troubleshooting, especially if
provided information would be easy to copy-past to clipboard.

- - lack of presence indication
  In a contact list all of them are grayed out dispite the fact that my calls are
successful. When I try ekiga it correctly indicates contacts which are online. That
is a minor but extremely visible (and thus potentially annoying) issue.

So the question is - should I report it as a one big bug or several separate bugs?
Or maybe it's a known issues? I tried to search for similar bug reports but I might
overlook something.

kind regards,
Max.

Hello guys.

There are several cosmetic issues which I could report on ubuntu 10.04:

- - weird outlook of "options" window
  I use non default theme with light-gray font and dark background. SC takes
appropriate font color but keeps it's white background which renders window
unreadable. It should either completely respect user's look-n-feel (preferable of
course) or completely ignore it. This seems like a big issue to me.

Could you please log an issue for this one?

- - lack of codec info
  In a call window there is no information about audio\video codecs used. It would be
nice to have one more button "i" (in addition to mute etc) which would display it as
well as some other info like bandwidth, packet loss etc. That's a minor issue but it
could be of a great help for future debugging and troubleshooting, especially if
provided information would be easy to copy-past to clipboard.

Yes, we were thinking of making the codec appear in a tooltip somewhere
on the call window. Not sure if we are going to look for a mechanism
that would allow copying it to clipboard. Codex are, after all short
strings so it should be easy to commit them to memory after a glance.
Could you please open an issue for this one too?

- - lack of presence indication
  In a contact list all of them are grayed out dispite the fact that my calls are
successful. When I try ekiga it correctly indicates contacts which are online. That
is a minor but extremely visible (and thus potentially annoying) issue.

Well, whether or not are contacts are grayed out depends entirely on the
server, and whether it is going to provide us with presence information
for them. If ekiga is showing presence information from the same
contacts, on the same server, then maybe there's an issue with the
configuration. Make sure that your SIP account has the "chat and
presence" box checked. The P2P presence mode is better off unchecked,
especially if your server supports presence. If this is not the case,
you can try checking it.

Hope this helps,
Emil

I'll retest it later. I'm pretty busy with exams so bug #823 is quite good excuse for
sticking to default options anyway :slight_smile:

I tried same account\contacts\server (ekiga.net) with both SC and Ekiga. Presence was
only displayed correctly in Ekiga. So whatever defaults it uses - it probably have
better values than SC.

thanks,
Max.
