XBMC Addons  - 
 
From a developers perspective, is there any way to update the dateadded attribute of a movie or episode from within an addon?

I did find this bug-report
http://trac.kodi.tv/ticket/15755
and it would be nice to have it in the api.
But as of now, it is not...
...So is there any other way?

I thought about direct database access but this would be a pain to implement and isn't the way it should be done :/

Hope someone got an idea :)

Does anyone know why the transition between background slideshows is super laggy (like 0.5 fps or so)?
I gave up on it while I was on gnome 3.14 and thought lets give it another shot with 3.16...
Still the same and I can't find anything on the net :/

devs may not notice since they may not use that particular feature or they may not look at the background at all since covered by windows all the time (like here), that's why we have a bugzilla, so please file a bug if there isn't one already.

The To-Do-List says "Change weather provider to OpenWeatherMap".
Will we still be able to use forecast.io because personally I prefer forecast.io's weather data :)

In my opinion it would make much more sense to have the Hourly Forecasts show EACH hour instead of showing one dot for every six hours.

Currently it is hard to determine how to weather is going to be on a specific time of the day.

Discussions are welcome :)

Yeah... that's about right :D
 
Only an hour and half to go until EVERY SINGLE Apple tech blog backpedals on everything they were criticizing about smartwatches about 8 months ago. Things to note:

1) Square is now definitely the best shape for a smartwatch. This is no longer a dull and nerdy shape.

2) One day battery life and nightly charging is no longer an issue, it is a standard.

3) Having to own/purchase and carry around another unique charger is now a privilege, not an inconvenience... cause magnets.

4) No price is too high. Any ridiculous amount announced today is a gift to us, the consumer.

5) The fact that it only works with one ecosystem is a feature, not a limitation. 

6) Any content displayed on such a tiny screen from maps to photos is no longer ridiculous, it's magical and amazing.

7) Daylight visibility or lack thereof is no longer a consideration or is even needed.

8) Apple "invented" the smartwatch.

Update: worse than I expected. I'm amazed how accurately I predicted #4 :)

Quick update...
Kodi 14.2 beta 1 got release AND the fixes include:
packaging of PIL module on Android. This fixes some script error when using weather add-on
which means QR-Code generation should work on Android as well :)

Is anyone using Kodi on Windows/Mac OS/iOS?
Does the QR-Code generation work for you on those platforms?

Notify - Updates  - 
 
Sorry for the lack of updates the last few days..
Haven't had much time to work on anything really :/

Some of you may have noticed that if you get a notification on your phone (say from hangouts, gmail, inbox etc) and get ANOTHER notification from the same app they get merged into a new one. This results in 3 notification-events getting sent to a client (which is really annoying). Sadly I have yet to find a solution for this which is not as easy as I was hoping it to be.

Second would be that if you get a notification (say via hangouts) which will be displayed 5 sec. (on e.g. Kodi) but after 2 sec. you get another notification (this time from e.g. gmail) the first one goes away instantly (does not display for the full 5 sec.). This might be because of changes from Kodi 13 to Kodi 14. But still I'll try to get around this somehow.

I though I'll let you know that I'm aware of that and because I think those are the most annoying "bugs" I'll focus on that.

If you have anything else just let me know ;)

Does anyone know why gnome-photos doesn't get updated to 3.16?
It's flagged out-of-date since 2015-03-26...

I'm just curious on what's holding it

It would be nice to have some sort of "Automatic weather warning" notifications.
The idea behind this is to get automatically notified in case of "It will start to rain now" or "A storm is approaching" etc.

All the information's needed to determine if a notifications needs to be posted or not should already be available within the app.

The "normal" approach to get this to work would be to have a server which pushes those information's to the clients (the app) using GCM which isn't quite possible I guess.
So the solution could be the following:
One AlarmManager to run every 1, 2 or 3 hours to updated the local weather-data and
another AlarmManager to run every e.g. 5 or 10 mins to validate the cached weather-data and if needed posts a notification.
This way the battery-usage shouldn't be affected to much.

Again, discussions are welcome :)

Hi there folks,

I have a problem with google and Gnome Online Accounts which is driving me nuts ^^
I can add my google-acc without a problem and the sync does work as well (only using it for contacts and calendar) but at random intervals (multiple times a day, "only" once a week...) I get a gnome popup which is asking me for my google-password. The first time I insert my pwd a second popup appears saying the inserted pwd was wrong and I have to insert it again.
After that (most of the time) my calendar is empty though and I'd have to remove and re-add the online-acc (sometimes disabling/enabling the calendar-sync does work as well).

I DON'T use 2 factor authentication and this problem still occurs on a fresh setup.

Anyone got an idea why this happens?

Additional Infos
 - OS: arch
 - DE: gnome-shell 3.14.3 with gnome-online-accounts 3.14.3
 - evolution-data-server: 3.12.11

Quick update from my side...
Just updated to gnome 3.16, removed my google account (and deleted the evolution cache folder), readded my google account and a few seconds later I got a mail from google saying:
Your Google account (<email-address>) was just used to sign in on Android.
There also was a button to Check Details where I was able to Approve this device.

Long story short... something must have changed and let's see if this works any better ^^

SOLVED (Solution can be found on the bottom)
Hi there I really hope someone can help me...

If got my new XPS13 (2015) yesterday and even though it's a really nice pice of hardware there are some problems (obviously ^^)

So I've got the QHD display (3200x1800) which doesn't quite work with all applications (like google chrome is awfull and isn't affected by the window scaling)

So I thought...
Well lets simpley change the resolution to 1920x1080 for now so I can at least work. Sadly apart from the original 3200x1800 there are only 4:3 ratio resolution (non of them is usable) so I added the 1920x1080 myself using xrandr.
But everytime I set the resolution to use my new one, it sets it, display flickers for a moment and than falls back to the original 3200x1080 (all via command-line). Same happen if I use the UI though.
Next I tried using a custom X11 conf which (it looks like) does set the 1920x1080 while beeing on the lockscreen (I'm using gdm btw) but once I log in, it falls back to the 3200x1800.

Solution
Problem: Changing to the new, manually added, resolution did not work because it immediately switched back to the original one
Solution: (For me at least) removing ~/.config/monitors.xml did the trick. You might have to restart GDM after removing/renaming the file

ALRIGHT!!!! I DID IT
The bad-boy was the ~/.config/monitors.xml
After removing that one I was able to set the resolution to 1920x1080 without it falling back :) Now that I can actually read stuff I can try to fix the other problems :D
