|rcohn||14:04||Hi - I'm building with FB1.6.0 and noticed a peculiar startup ordering issue. On IE, I see getRootJSAPI called before PluginEventSource::AttachObserver; and on Firefox (Chrome, etc.) I see just the opposite startup ordering. Is there a reason for this? Thanks.|
|taxilian||14:04||yes; IE and Firefox start things up in a different order
this is why it is explicitly stated in documentation (probably but not certainly in the plugin lifecycle docs) that the window is not guaranteed to be created before getRootJSAPI
|rcohn||15:04||OK. I'll have to juggle a few things to have certain objects created when needed, but I can handle it. Thought I would ask to see if this was a bug, or if I'd done something wrong. Thanks again. You guys are doing a great job!|
|taxilian||15:04||note that you can call getRootJSAPI yourself if you want to
it's not going to hurt anything as long as you do it after the constructor finishes
|Sohaib||21:04||Hi, I am a newvie here. Would anyone help me to install Firebreath? I am running Debian Linux 6, 64 bit version.|
|taxilian||21:04||FireBreath isn't so much something you install as something you download
I recommend just checking it out with git
have you read the getting started pages?
|Sohaib||21:04||Yes I checked out with git.|
|taxilian||21:04||okay; let's use a slightly different approach, then. What exactly are you having trouble iwth?|
|Sohaib||21:04||Most of them are about how to write plugins with Firebreath.
I want to install Firebreath on my machine first.
|taxilian||21:04||you said you checked it out with git?|
|Sohaib||21:04||Yes I checked out|
|taxilian||21:04||then congratulations; you're done
any other quesitons?
Not for now
|taxilian||21:04||note that you will also need to install cmake
and python if you want to use fbgen to create your template project
rather the skeleton of your project
|Sohaib||21:04||I have already installed cmake and python.
|taxilian||21:04||you should be good to go, then, more or less
you're welcome. good luck
|Sohaib||21:04||Going to create my first skeleton.
|taxilian||21:04||what are you planning to make, if I can ask?
(I find it interesting to see what projects people use FireBreath for)
|Sohaib||21:04||Sure. I want create a plugin for viewing WSQ files.|
|taxilian||21:04||hmm. full page plugin?|
|Sohaib||21:04||Nope, partial page|
|taxilian||21:04||ahh, okay. that shouldn't be too bad, then, as long as you're familiar with GTK
(GDK? I confuse them)
|taxilian||21:04||yeah, I'm really not sure :-P
whichever of those involves drawing and supports XEmbed :-P
linux drawing is really a weak point for me
|Sohaib||21:04||No problem. I'll get back to you guys (if I can finish it :P)|
