#286 wontfix some equivalent of console in this brave new world quentin geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


~/.xsession-errors captures all stdout and stderr from your Athena session. This means that it captures inordinate amounts of GNOME spew, so you don't want that displayed Athena-9-console style.

The downside of this is that things that you do want displayed, like output of your .startup.X, output of from, etc., don't show up anywhere. If you want to display things at login, you need to copy the hairy anti-HTML code to invoke zenity that we added today to fix the gmotd. And, that doesn't have the nice features of Athena 9's console that it updates as more info comes in and it can hide until more input arrives.

It would be totally spiffy if someone implemented a short python-gtk or whatever app that waited for input on stdin, mapped itself, and displayed data. Then we can run .startup.X with stdout/stderr redirected to this app, and display output the user wants to see iff there is such output.

For example, RSI has code in .startup.X to display a motd on stdout, assuming the Athena 9 console. I also have code in .startup.X to display various useful output, and .xsession-errors is a useless place for it to go (it's not an error!).

#291 wontfix mail-icon-config should know about some common external mail providers broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


Now that we have email-icon-config, it would be a really cool enhancement to teach it about some of the common places that people chpobox their mail to. For example, if you're chpoboxed to Gmail, it would be cool for the e-mail icon to pull up a browser sending you to Gmail.

#308 wontfix Trac e-mail is entirely too noisy geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


Nobody will read this e-mail because we've all tuned them out. That's a problem.
