LordeKumamon[m]I acidentally removed the desktop icon from one app00:24
LordeKumamon[m]if you try to move the icon and misplace it, it'll vanish and you'll have no way to open the app again even thou it is still installed00:24
malyou should be able to force reinstall the app from commandline00:27
LordeKumamon[m]and then I'll lose login data (which in case of means losing your encryption keys)00:28
LordeKumamon[m]it's also possible to misplace the terminal icon and lose it too00:29
malLordeKumamon[m]: what? some app removes data when it's updated?00:42
malLordeKumamon[m]: maybe you misunderstood what I meant00:43
LordeKumamon[m]reinstall = uninstall + install which I assume will remove all app data00:44
LordeKumamon[m]maybe I misunderstood you. can you elaborate?00:44
malI meant install over the existing i.e. basically updating it using the same versio00:45
LordeKumamon[m]how can I do that?00:46
LordeKumamon[m]btw, thanks for offering a hand here00:47
malmaybe figure out the package name (pkcon search name something_related) and the pkcon install --allow-reinstall package_name00:49
LordeKumamon[m]this app I lost was an Android app00:51
LordeKumamon[m]it didn't show up in pkcon00:51
malwell that information would have been nice to know00:51
LordeKumamon[m]changing screen orientation doesn't make the icons appear again (as if they've been lost and could be refound), so I guess the icons were deleted00:56
LordeKumamon[m]oops! I found them. they were dropped in folders!00:57
malwhat did you do to remove the icons?01:00
malso everything is fine now?01:00
LordeKumamon[m]yep. my eyes tricked me. the apps were actually moved into new folders (grouped with previous apps).01:02
malgood that it was solved01:04
LordeKumamon[m]thanks for the help01:06

vinipsmakerdoes sailfish has a full-backup mode so if my phone is stolen I don't need to reconfigure everything?12:44
rinigusvinipsmaker: I usually use rsync for backup of the home dir. while you will need to reinstall apps in this case, apps data will be there13:07

attahr0kk3rz: opus, supported? how?18:48
r0kk3rztheres a library and a gstreamer plugin18:51
attahbut not by default?18:51
attah...or is it just the mimetype isn't registered?18:51
r0kk3rzmimetype could be missing i guess18:53
r0kk3rzthe gstreamer plugin is there by default18:53
attahopening it from downloads just gives a warning to suggest that18:54
attahinvoking jolla-mediaplayer with it as an argument does nothing :(18:54
r0kk3rzwhere did ypu get the file?18:54
Dakonplaying alternativlos podcast from opus works18:55
r0kk3rzattah: ok so i got the file to play, but it does look like the mediaplayer and tracker ignores the file19:19
attahOkay... what did you get it to play with?19:19
r0kk3rzmy music player, sirensong19:20
r0kk3rzbecause it supports launch args19:20
r0kk3rzany other player also should work, so long as you can tell it to play the file19:21
attahoh, my bad.. i was sure i had used the built-in media player like that before, but it does indeed not work19:22
r0kk3rzok, once i told tracker to index the file it showed up in jolla-mediaplayer19:25
r0kk3rzwhich also plays19:26
attahso basically Jolla could/should put that in the next update? jaaay, free functionality19:27
malr0kk3rz: should be quite simple to add new filetypes to supported ones if codecs are available19:28
maland already included in sailfish19:29
r0kk3rzyeah, pretty sure thats just defined in the .desktop file19:29
r0kk3rznot sure if theres an issue with the tracker miners or not19:30
attahi tried adding it... but haven't figured out how to reload...19:30
r0kk3rzi think you can also poke around with xdg-mime19:30
attahyeah.. that's a clusterfudge19:31
r0kk3rzbut i just did tracker index --file [filename]19:31
attahxdg-open on the .opus file invokes the browser19:31
malr0kk3rz: I'm trying to remember where new filetypes are added, I remember seeing something related to that in some changelog19:33
attahugh... and after a reboot the only thing that has changed is that the browser now succeeds in playing the file19:33
r0kk3rzmal: theres a big ignorelist, but a whitelist im not sure19:33
malr0kk3rz: what is the mime type reported for opus19:36
