I needed to use gpx-viewer, so I decided to directly give it some updates: Install application/gpx+xml mime type for *.gpx files. This however breaks make distcheck. (update-mime-database creates some directories, that are not gone on uninstall.. How do I work around this?) Update recentmanager to use this mime type for recent files. Call update-desktop-database on read more »

It turned out libchamplain does not like being embedded inside libgdl. So latest BZR should be working fine again.

Very simple, I am no longer a student (haven’t been for a while now) and I have a very interesting Job at the university. This however limits the amount of time I have for the different tools. C’est la vie. So what am I working on? well this website (http://compsoc.eu/ ) explains it a bit.

A few weeks ago (allready, pff time goes fast when working) I got a nice update and now my libchamplain is broken again. So I do not have a machine where I can develop gpx-viewer on.. Frustrating as hell!

I have added a request for showing height in the Graph plot, this is I think the last new feature for this release. I have been playing with another tool that can plot the power usage of the whole house.. So I need a graph widget yet again, basically the same as in GpxViewer, read more »

In the past 2 weeks I have been working on porting gpx-viewer to Gtk+-3.0 and libchamplain 0.12. Andrew H. Did the first step for libchamplain, I merged some patches I made before for the gui. Together they resulted in a reasonable good working state. Then I updated things to be back (or better) then old read more »

With the help of Andrew H. I managed today to port GPX-Viewer to GTK3 and libchamplain 0.12. Not everything is working yet, but the basic functionality is back. The biggest missing thing is that the ChamplainView does not seem to accept mouse presses. So you can not pan/move the view.. (weird). Help with this is read more »

I use libchamplain in GPX-Viewer to display the driven track on a nice map. However in the past months it hardly ever works, it either crashes or just displays a grey map, the vala bindings are broken and had minor offset bugs that drove me crazy. Is there a good alternative library that can render read more »

I figured out how to catch clicks on my champlain map. (left mouse click is still dodgy as the button release only is triggered when you move the mouse after releasing). It turned out I had to call clutter_actor_set_reactive() on the map. Not knowing clutter at all, it would have been nice if the champlain read more »
