Where can I submit bug fixes?

Asked by JoeBaloney on 2012-09-17

I've been working with the source trying to get a feel for the project. I "partially" fixed one of my issues, the music player not updating the cover when songs change. I got the icon to update whenever a new cover is not found, but still haven't gotten the tool tip text to update.

static gboolean _on_got_cover (CDSharedMemory *pSharedMemory)
{
 CD_APPLET_ENTER;
 if (pSharedMemory->bSuccess)
 {
   ...
  }
  else
// I added the 3 following lines
  {
   cd_musicplayer_apply_status_surface (myData.iPlayingStatus);
  }
...
}

Hello and thank you for this question!

It's maybe better to open a new bug report. Then you can add your patch (e.g. made with 'diff -Naur' if you have the original tarball ; or with 'bzr diff' if the sources have been downloaded with bzr ; or by pushing your modification on a new BZR branch).

For us, the best is to download the latest revision from BZR repo (it's better because it's possible that the bug has been fixed or the code has changed) and then 'commit' and 'push' the modification on a new branch (or produce a patch made with 'bzr diff') but I can understand that it's a bit more complicated to use BZR if you never used a version control system (like BZR, Git, SVN, Hg, Mercurial, etc.). About BZR, you can have a look to our wiki for more details: http://glx-dock.org/ww_page.php?p=Help%20us%20with%20BZR&lang=en
And if you want the documentation about Cairo-Dock's API, you can have a look there: http://glx-dock.org/ww_page.php?p=Documentation&lang=en

Now about the bug, I'm going to add a new bug report.

Can you help with this problem?
