SaX3 – GSoC 2011 – Weekly Report 2

This is my 2nd report, this week not to show much for the users, but we did a quite interesteing things. SaX is now module oriented.So, if anyone wants to write a module for SaX3 it is possible now. Besides the important things which I did was

  1. Learn the augeas C api
  2. Submitted a  .desktop lens for augeas
  3. It is module oriented
  4. Tried out Doxygen
  5. SaX3 is now localised.

The launcher is now complete :-) Again, the source code is here http://github.com./manugupt1/sax3 Regarding modules, If anyone wants to check out how modules work, they work using .desktop files  in /usr/share/sax3/modules.d. If you will remove it we can remove it from the launcher.

    These are the kinds of X.Org config file adjustments which have worked for users. The first is good for nvidia users with EDID issues. The second can work for users with open source drivers.

    I hope this info is useful to you.

  4. [...] for the kind words Lee. I saw your link concerning the update for the sax3-gsoc weekly update: SaX3 – GSoC 2011 – Weekly Report 2 and left a message, which I hope Manu Gupta will read. I know that there are many tricks/tips [...]

  5. Great news! Thanks so much for working on Sax3. I’m happy to be runny openSUSE, which is one of the few distros that actually cares about GUI config tools.
