hi all

For a while, Xnee has been malfunctioning on some platforms. Hopefully some code committed yesterday will "solve it all on all platforms" (uh oh, sounds like famous last words!!).

It would be great if you could help out and test Xnee from CVS HEAD. If you do volunteer the text below will guide you. It's divided into three sections, a division which hopefully will help you.

Please report back, either publicly (on this list) or privately to me.


1. Getting the cnee cinary

 cnee (built on Debian GNU/Linux (Lenny)):
   wget http://itupw056.itu.chalmers.se/xnee/install/bin/cnee

Unofficial dist:
wget http://itupw056.itu.chalmers.se/xnee/nightly-dists/xnee-cvs-20091207-tmp.tar.gz

  tar xvfz xnee-cvs-20091207-tmp.tar.gz

  cd xnee-cvs-20091207-tmp/

  ./configure --disable-doc --disable-gui --disable-gnome-applet


  cd cnee/src/

2. Telling us about your system

# before you reply to this email, make sure you don't reveal any information you would prefer to keep hidden.

  ./cnee --record --mouse --keyboard -data-to-record 0 -o sysinfo.txt

3. Testing the binary

  ./cnee --record --mouse --keyboard -sk p

Test 01:
Press a key and verify that cnee prints out two lines like this:
the important things are the "0,2,0" and "0,3,0". They mean key press and key release.

Test 02:
Move the mouse and make sure you'll get lots of "0,6,0" printouts, something like this:

Test 03:
Move the mouse and press "p" after some seconds. The recording shall be interrupted and cnee should exit with a 0 (the latter is easiest checked by doing "echo $?" in the terminal window where you started cnee).

... thanks a lot!!!!!
