Alex______ 04:03 Hi everybody! I'm trying to create plugin for Linux(Ubuntu). I'm using X11 to create child window from GtkWidget, which I take from FB::PluginWindowX11->getWidget(). Plugin crashes in firefox, in Chromium works, but not displays... I created test desktop application with GTK and X11 - works normally. Please, help... Thanks!

nagesh 05:03 I am new to FireBreath and came to know that FireBreath is best suited for my requirement. My question is that can I reuse my ActiveX code in fireBreath or I have rewrite the control from scratch.

someone-noone 07:03 Hello! Is there a common way of getting OpenGL context in Linux? Tried to do it with X11 window, but plugin crashes...
ch 08:03 taxilian_away: you're hosting WebViewMac in a CG plugin? how much CPU does that use?
taxilian 09:03 ch: haven't noticed a significant problem CPU-wise
MattF 09:03 hi, i'm trying to run the prep2010.cmb batch file and receive the error - Could not create named generator Visual Studio 10
taxilian 09:03 that means that cmake can't find visual studio 2010 on your computer
MattF 09:03 I have checked the path and other suggestions in following link
taxilian 09:03 what version of cmake are you running?
MattF 09:03 2.6
taxilian 09:03 and where did you install vs? default location? or custom?
MattF 09:03 default
taxilian 09:03 2.6? install the latest cmake, then
should be 2.8.7 or some such
ch 09:03 had anyone success with hosting an NSView (or subclass) ontop of FB's MyCALayer?
MattF 09:03 that seems to have fixed it
taxilian 09:03 ch: you can't host it directly; you may be able to use a method similar to what I did with CG to get the rendered bits and draw on the CALayer
or maybe possibly make the CALayer the backing layer for the NSView; not sure if that would work or not
ch 10:03 taxilian: I've tried the backing layer way, but that doesn't seem to work
ch 10:03 possibly stupid question: in a CA plugin, am I supposed to get a RefreshEvent, and/or must I call setDisplayNeeded myself? (and do that on my sublayers or on FB's MyCALayer?)
I've had something working a few hours ago, but it was incredibly slow and I had to call setNeedsDisplay from the AutoInvalidate timer and have MyCALayer call setNeedsDisplay on it's sublayers
taxilian 10:03 you need to call it yourself, unless you use the built-in timer
ch 10:03 IIRC with the AutoInvalidate timer alone I wasn't seeing updates until I started calling setNeedsDisplay from the timer proc
but I'll try again without this
taxilian 10:03 the timer may have been set up for asynchronous CALayer drawing
someone-noone 11:03 Hello! Asking again: Is there any common method to get OpenGL context on linux plugins? I tried to do it with X11, getting window from Gtk_Widget. But plugin crashes. Standalone version of my code works and draws fine.
taxilian 11:03 I've never figured that one out
but I know it's possible
someone-noone 11:03 taxilian, hello! What's up dude? Do you know people on this channel who done it?
taxilian 11:03 not certain
don't remember
niftylettuce 15:03 so
taxilian: give me a name for the open source extension framework
:D :D
taxilian 15:03 I don't know of one
niftylettuce 15:03 taxext
purple monkey dishwasher
taxilian 15:03 lol
niftylettuce 15:03 leopard fang
taxilian 15:03 existientialists
niftylettuce 15:03 necronomicon
bruce campbell
ch 17:03 taxilian: unsure what I'm doing different this time, but it's using way less CPU :)
taxilian 17:03 heh
