Default Aros Paper Cuts Weekly Review.

This week's fixed Paper Cuts.

#3434282

Details:

When files are being created/deleted from root to any volume, Wanderer's desktop keeps refreshing. Wanderer should only refresh the desktop when tracked icons change.

Closed deadwood_pl

#3434110

Details:

In Wanderer in enhance mode only the window opened on root of volume will get autorefresh. In classic mode, every window gets autorefreshed.

Steps:

a) open RAM: in Wanderer
b) open shell, go to RAM:, type echo "" > test
c) window refreshes, file is visible
d) go to T in the same Wanderer window
e) in shell: cd T, echo "" > test
f) wanderer window does not refresh

Repeat the same in Classic mode - it refreshes in both cases.

Closed deadwood_pl

#3433106

Details:

Even when the 'simple SCSI' checkbox is unchecked for a USB drive, non-simple commands are ignored. A warning message indicating that simple-SCSI is still in effect is also logged.
Closed ncafferkey

#3432351

Details:

Download a file to T:

Go to T: dir from Wanderer while downloading.

Wanderer will start refreshing T: folder where download icon is like crazy and most likely crash AROS.

Yer bein' a little too modest there, Tim.

One of the reasons why I support MorphOS is because, as a _professionally supported_ AmigaOS, it's better cleaned and polished. (That, and unlike the current options for AmigaOS 4.1, I can afford it.)

This is where AROS, as Open Source, is a little lacking, so I applaud you for the effort of trying to clean it up a little bit. AROS needs this. "No Schedule and Rocking" is both a good and bad thing where AROS is concerned.

This week's fixed Paper Cuts.

#3437780
Details:
Gadtool.library : palette gadget should use all available space provided (not only if number of colors is a power of 2.


Suggested by Yannick

Fixed by Yannick

#3437245
Details:
On black space do the following quickly:

LDOWN->LUP->LDOWN

After the second LDOWN there is no lasso. It is expected that lasso will start in such conditions.

Fixed by Deadwood

#3434256
Details:
"Do not build SFSDefrag because SFS defragmentation is not recommended."

Ref:
http://aros-exec.org/modules/newbb/v...forumpost60813

The boot block is not destroyed. The part of GRUB contained in the bootblock is looking for the rest of GRUB at the wrong disk location, because SFSDefrag has moved the GRUB files.

To fix this, SFSDefrag could possibly be altered to call Install-grub2-pc-i386 at the end of its operations.

Alternatively, maybe SFSDefrag should not be included in AROS, since it has been suggested that SFS may not be completely stable on AROS, even without running defrag tools that could make things worse.

Fixed by Ncafferkey

#3430683
Details:
Shutdown button should be disabled in pc-i386.

Suggested by ncafferkey

Fixed by ncafferkey

Fixed in SVN r42543 (ABIv1) and r42544 (ABIv0). The button is also disabled
for m68k-amiga.

#3137104
Details:
the toolbar in wanderer-windows can't be turned off. in prefs/wanderer it can be disabled, but wanderer doesn't recognize. After reopening prefs/wanderer it is back activated!

Found on icaros desktop 1.2.5 light, installed on
hd.

Fixed by Deadwood

#3016027
Details:
On FileRequester, when saving a file for example a download from OWB, "File" field is overwritten when browsing directories/files using mouse wheel.

(Ex: If you want to save a file and the filename is added in
requester window "File" field by your program, then if you scroll
directories with mouse wheel, the filename will be replaced with
the directories your scrolling over)

- related to the above issue, if you scroll folders/files with keyboard's arrow-keys
the directories selected are not higlighted, only files are, and again directories and files browsed overwrites the "File" field

Fixed by otigreat

#3016022
Details:
The current way to copy multiple files in Wanderer is a bit "strange" and un-intuitive:

Steps needed to copy multiple files:

1. Select all files normally with mouse
2. Keep pressing SHIFT key and click on one of the files, it will be deselected
3. Still keeping SHIFT pressed, click on the file you just deselected and keeping mouse button pushed drag-n-drop your files in the destination window.

The same thing should be done just selecting multiple files with a selection-rectangle and then drag-n-dropping them in destination window clicking on one of the selected files.

I changed Wanderer's settings to disable the toolbar and clicked "Save". The toolbar is gone, but after every reboot, it's back there and I have to repeat the procedure.

Fixed

3443202 The slash character is appended at the volume edit-field

Details:
http://aros-exec.org/modules/newbb/v...forumpost61581
Target OS: Icaros Desktop 1.3.2
Action(s): Open edit and screengrabber, open filerequester and press
parent button many times...
Fault(s): The slash character is appended at the volume edit-field
again and again.
Reproducable: yes, 100%
Suggestion: Stop adding slashes when volume-field is at root or empty
when parent-button is pressed
Remark: Original AOS 3.0 didn't have this behaviour. Faulty behaviour
is in requester-code and is not app-related. And why are slashed added
into the volumebox in the first place

3433967 Icon files created when drawer is snapshotted

Details:
