Do you have python-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 installed?


I did not have that installed. I installed it and it's good to go. I think Phill is going to update the script.

Thank you for the help!

In another topic i did suggest having the error/warning messages in a tab in QtPlasmaC since under Linux Mint there are no popups and the messages on the lower left side dissapear very quickly and if the mouse is moved. This is implemented in ProbeBasic (the GUI, not the probe tab for Axis/Gmoccapy) so that might be a starting point.

Mint should pop messages if you have the libraries installed.
I use Mint.
check the terminal for a warning about this.

When I had this problem (Mint 19.2), I don’t recall any error messages about missing dependencies (not saying there weren’t any).

The odd thing at the time was that sometimes I would get them, and sometimes I would not.

I finally gave up and converted everything to MX Linux, but I know people love Mint.

I know of one other guy having this problem on the iso distribution of lcnc, running Buster I reckon.

Not sure if any of that helps. I know it’s difficult to duplicate what you can’t replicate.

interesting - yes intermittent problems are the worst.

I'm sorry I had forgotten the problem and didn't reread the thread.
It seems mint 19.2 is the problem.
Sorry for the noise

Hey Chris, a few of questions about the on screen display for error messages.
  • Is there a pin/signal/parameter hidden away somewhere that indicates a button on the OSD has been clicked?
  • Is there a way to limit the number of messages on the OSD to say 5 or 3 to prevent the OSD ending up partially off screen?
  • Is there a way to prevent the OSD from being shown?

  • By "a button", I mean "Close", "Clear All", and "Show Last Five"?

    Edit: I have attached a diff that gives an example of what I would like to achieve.

    1) no but it's possible.
    2) no there is no information about how many messages are currently showing or how big the message box is. I can dig in a bit to see if that info is available somehow.
    3) you can disable notify messages in the screenoptions or do you mean temporarily?

    Thanks Chris.
    1. Yeah, there is a dodgy way in the diff I posted
    2. I saw it was hard coded in notify.py
    3. Permanent with a user selection

    3)
    -you can disable notify using the preference file.
    - you can override that in the handler file: self.w.screen_options.setProperty('notify_option',False)

    You will lose the error message going to the status bar too - if that matters.
