Yay Bob!

Fedora 20 x86_64 XFCE, XrandR, 5 Monitors...

App now correctly remembers size and location regardless of screen placement.
Window dragging is smooth and snappy.
Window resize is smooth and snappy (even when playing).

The only nit is that the app window goes white during the resize and occasionally when crossing screen boundaries.  Always redraws correctly when the operation is complete.

Good Work!

Bob,

I can confirm that the CIFS/SMB mount issues that I was having for auto import directory is fixed.  Will continue to test and provide feedback.  Should I post the feedback in this thread or should a new one be started?

Thx, for a quick fix.

Maximizing and resizing working good here on Ubuntu!

The white is part of the fix (a side effect anyway).
The windows are too complex to be updated while moving/resizing so the frame is redrawn only after the move / resize is completed (other than the system backing store).
It took a while to figure out that was the problem. Our screen layout method is unusual and very complex, it's what makes it possible to do cross platform and keep skinning, etc.

No worries Bob.   It's a minor cosmetic issue at best.

2. Fixed: Moving the main window works properly now.

I'm sorry but its still not working properly here. It immediately jumped off the screen out of sight and off the taskbar.

I killed the process hoping it didn't save its position ;) and loaded again.

When I move very slowly it sort of works, but still jerks around. As long as I keep the mouse button pressed though, it seems to come back to the cursor though.

Saving position does seem to work :).

Thanks!

Yes I agree with InflatableMouse.

Saving of position and size works. Moving the main window around is crazy.
Making the window bigger is also a challenge.

I also noticed focus issue. Some popup window should be modal, and they are not.
So it can become hidden behind the main window and then you have to de-iconify it to gain control of the app.

Ah, you're right. Plus trying to extend the width of the tree also causes issues too.

Had issues with the main gui disappearing multiple times when starting from the menu.  When the gui disappeared it also did not show running in the task bar but ps -ef|grep -i mediacenter19 showed a process running.  I started mediacenter from command line and so far no issues.  Hoping it will spit out error message if it crashes/disappears.

Movement of boundaries INSIDE of the main window are not subject to the delayed update yet.
The changes only apply to moving and resizing the main window.
Once I'm satisfied the approach is correct, it can be easily applied to the remaining functions like dragging the internal boundaries.

Now all of the machines I tested on here work fine with the changes.
I don't have multiple monitors on any machine.
I'm going to start a new thread specifically on this topic and would like feedback there. Perhaps a table to try to find the specifics about when it doesn't work.
There will only be so much effort put into distros and configurations that aren't Debian Wheezy i386 with default desktop and operative hardware rendering.
Note that you will likely need operative hardware rendering in the future anyway.

Thanks for all of your feedback!

Congratulations.  I haven't tried since several weeks ago, and it has improved a lot.   :)
Now it's more usable.

After playing a little, I find some glitches.

The most annoying ones are:
  • I cannot resize narrow columns in a grid by dragging the header boundary, because the tooltip prevents it.
  • When resizing a panel, the mouse pointer doesn't change shape
  • The tags panel doesn't allow to resize columns
  • When editing the data in a grid, don't know how to expand combo boxes in order to select an item
  • I cannot see the rating of my songs.  Maybe it's a misconfiguration.  I've imported from Windows my library.

Definitely, the most annoying bug for me with this build, is that I cannot see nor change my ratings.
The ratings column is shown but completely blank.  :-\

I've tried to increase the width of the column in the grid, with no success.

With the wizard, I can make searches like the top rated.  So the rating field is in the database.  It's just a display problem.

In the tag panel, I can see the rating as a number editable with a combo with values from 1 to 5 stars.

How can this be solved?

I can confirm the issue with trying to resize columns due to the tooltip getting in the way, but *sometimes* it'll work for me.

If you quick enough, you can do it.

Also, I have columns whose value is 1 digit and I make them narrow, and would like to see the 1st letter in the title, but only see "..."

I meant changing the value of combo boxes with the keyboard.  With the mouse it can be easily done.
