Description Edward 2022-06-15 16:59:31 CEST
Description of problem:

Current installed version of meteo-qt is 2.1, but a version 3.2 is listed as being in core-updates_testing since April. Was advised on Mageia Forum to post an inquiry on the qa-discuss mailing list. A response from the mailing list, said to file a bug report asking for the update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.2



Thank you.

Comment 2 Lewis Smith 2022-06-15 21:01:36 CEST
If the newer version really *is* in core/updates_testing, it should be a question of prompting QA to do it. But that needs a bug - now this one. 'meteo-qt' is not in the current list to test:
and when it gets there, you Edward please test it! This helps.

I see that Version 3.2 is in Cauldron, by its packager, Apr 6. The rumour might have been about that.
Comment 3 sturmvogel 2022-06-15 21:10:25 CEST
Version 3.2 is in MGA8 core_updates_testing since April as pointed out by Edward. David gave a hint on qa-discuss ML that dglent forgot to file a bug for it, so it was never assigned to QA for testing.
Comment 4 Dimitrios Glentadakis 2022-06-16 06:03:06 CEST
Hello, i will write the advisor to ask to push it to core repo, i will do it this weekend
Comment 5 Morgan Leijström 2022-06-16 09:21:22 CEST
@ Dmitrios, please follow the procedure.

Lets use this bug. 

Could you write an advisory proposal here?

As you let us understand it is ready, I assign it to QA, as on stable release we need QA to test it OK before pushing to updates repo.

@ Edward,
please test the one in core_updates_testing and report.

(for how and when updates get to the list http://madb.mageia.org/tools/updates I dont know)

@ Morgan,

I'm just an end user of Mageia, I have never programmed, or compiled anything before and do not know how. Sorry.

The Mageia App Db site lists a source (src?) rpm package. 

But when I clicked the link showing the src rpm, the site brought me to:


where it displays:

Here a good read how to enable the testing media (don't forget to disable them afterwards again): https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Enabling_the_Testing_media

Or search directly at the mirrors if you don't like to enable testing media. Here the direct link to the package: https://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/8/x86_64/media/core/updates_testing/meteo-qt-3.2-1.mga8.noarch.rpm

Or, use qa-repo: https://wiki.mageia.org/en/QA_Repo
Comment 8 Edward 2022-06-16 14:47:05 CEST
@ sturmvogel and @ Dimitrios

I downloaded the rpm from distrib-coffee... and through a terminal window (after uninstalling version 2.1), the new version installed perfectly. It also retrieved the original location information and settings from version 2.1.

I had to go into the Settings as the temperature text under the icon was quite small to read. The Text Position was on -12 by default. I reset this to 0, then changed it back to -12, the text size then increased and was better. The default font setting (Sans Serif - 18 - 0) was untouched. 

Since the Text Position changed the size of the font and not the font setting itself, could that possibly be a bug?
Comment 9 Edward 2022-06-16 17:47:38 CEST
I'm going to let version 3.2 run for the remainder of the day here (EDT, -0400) to see how it goes. Other than what I described re the font size in Comment 8, not seeing any other issues.

I will note that with version 2.1, it is not displaying the UV information when the widget is opened, there is a header for UV in the window, but no information. Version 3.2 correctly displays this.
Comment 10 Dimitrios Glentadakis 2022-06-17 08:20:39 CEST
Meteo-qt update

Bug fixes and improvements.

After installation you will be asked to configure at least a city among other parameters.
However it is better to create a personal key from the settings dialogue in order to avoid an eventual error of "401: Unauthorized"

New in 3.2: You can adjust the systemtray icon dimensions, position, and the font size with a font configuration dialogue
This settings fixes problems when the icon is too small or too big depending the DE and the screen resolution

Comment 13 Edward 2022-06-17 13:53:49 CEST
Other than the font size upon first launch, easily corrected, I otherwise had no issues running 3.2 all day yesterday.

The package installed, ran and updated the forecast, all perfectly.

Thank you for the opportunity to test it.  :)

Glad to have you aboard, Edward. If you'd like to test more updates, you would be more than welcome to join QA. We need members of all skill levels.

Validating. Looks like advisory information is in Comment 10.
