Re:Rainlendar 2.9 BETA build 107 3 Years, 2 Months ago  
Thanks for looking into it so quickly!

In fact, I exchanged googlemail.com to gmail.com and it seems to work.


By the way, heres something that has been bothering me for quite some time now:

I never really know if and when to install all the additional files, like
- German.r2lang
- Shadow4-Languages.r2skin-addon
- Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon

For example: I just installed Rainlandar from scratch. Afterwards I upgraded
to the latest beta by simply overwriting the files. Then a first start, everything looks
good and also in my language.

Then I installed the widgets to have the weather widget. After a restart *only* the weather was shown, and in english. Installation of "Shadow4-Languages.r2skin-addon" fixed it. But still, just the weather, nothing else anymore. Had to re-activate it in the extended skin-options.

So, why not streamlining the whole process? It would be nice if Rainlendar would present a user-configured setup, and afterwards just download and install all the needed files by itself. And keep them upgraded.

I cannot imagine that a newbie would know what and when to install ...

On a little side note:

Tooltips no longer work. I had this problem in earlier builds, but was able to correct this with "ShowTooltips=1" in rainlendar2.ini.

Hm, the installation feels more and more like a hack .. ; )

I ask again: is the transparency for Linux disabled in this version too?

I was wrong, Tooltips are working.

But you have to manually edit the .ini file. When you enable Tooltips in the extended options dialogue, it won't save. And after every change in configuration, it's resetted to "ShowTooltips=0".

I thought this bug was fixed long time ago.

Installation should really be streamlined. Spent about 2 hours of configuration work with the upgrade. I know, it's beta.

This is what I have done:

1. Install 2.81 pro

2. Upgrade to 2.9 b109 by simply overwriting the files

3. Install the widgets "Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon"

4. Weather widget is in english.

5. Install the "Shadow4-Languages.r2skin-addon"

5. Realized that now only the weather is show, the calendar and everything else dissapeared.

6. Manually added calendar, event- and task overview again

7. The tooltips didn't show. Activating them in the extended options didn't work

8. Manually edit "rainlendar2.ini" and set "ShowTooltips=1"

9. Got it to work somehow.

10. Google calendar entries were flagged as "read-only". Solved by changing "@googlemail" to "@gmail"


As much as I like this great piece of software - but it's a little too much.

So, please streamline the instalaltion to let Rainlendar automagically download and install all the neccessary files. The whole localization with it's special addon files is not really userfriendly.

There are no plans to include the widget addon windows into Rainlendar's main distribution so you have to install it separately in the future too. However I probably could combine the language and widget addons into one package so you'd have to install just a single file.

The problem with the tooltips is caused by an incorrect translation in the German language file. I'll check if there has been updates since the last version.

Re:Rainlendar 2.9 BETA build 107 3 Years, 2 Months ago  
Example I had :
Task: test1
Start time: 19/06/2011 14:00 Due time: 19/06/2011 15:00
Alarm: 2 Hours before the task is due

Event: test 01
Start time: 19/06/2011 19:00 End time: 19/06/2011 20:00
Alarm: 1 Days before the event starts

Event: test 02
Start time 19/06/2011 All day event
Alarm: 1 Days before the event starts
Repeat every 1 weeks

there are 3 problem about alarm window :
First :
Alarm window (todolist window same) had not display task's due-time(like: 14:00 - 15:00 test1), even checked "Show alarm end time" option.

Second:
The new option "Show due time in alarm window", there had a "Show due to the event" option do the same work.
And now, must both checked to done this work.

Three:
You can see the image, event "test 01" and event "test 02" display on different day (alarm window), but they was setting on same day (eventlist window).
And this only happen at when a all-day-event had a weekly recurrent setting.
