[open] minor bugs OpenSesame 0.27.2 on Debian 'wheezy'

edited June 2013 in OpenSesame

Hi Sebastiaan,

Two minor bugs, occurring with 0.27.2 on Debian 'wheezy', ranging from slightly to a bit more inconvenient:

1) When looking at a sketchpad object whilst having the debug window located below the properties window (where the sketchpad preview is displayed), the OpenSesame window stretches out to below my screen's edge, meaning most of the debug window is hidden out of view. Trying to manually adjust the window size or setting the window to full screen does not help

2) When an experiment is closed by hitting Escape, the experiment resolution lingers on (i.e.: when I run an experiment in 1024x768, my screen res does not automatically jump back to 1920x1080)

3) I get errors when using PsychoPy: unsupported preferences (cannot copy exact error). Is this familiar to any other Debian users?

Thanks in advance! (for replying and/or fixing ;) )

    That's quite annoying, I know. Basically the sketchpad controls are too large. One of the things that I want to do for 0.28 (eventually) is redesign some of those quirks of the interface (feel free to draft a suggestion in Qt Designer!). For now, if you unmaximize the window, you'll find that it's easier to manage.

    2) When an experiment is closed by hitting Escape, the experiment resolution lingers on (i.e.: when I run an experiment in 1024x768, my screen res does not automatically jump back to 1920x1080).

    Right, that's a PyGame specific bug, which (in some circumstances) doesn't restore the resolution. It might be worth looking into though (issue). Perhaps it can be fixed by having the legacy back-end remember the resolution before the experiment starts, and restore it afterwards if necessary.

    It only happens with the legacy back-end, right?

    3) I get errors when using PsychoPy: unsupported preferences (cannot copy exact error). Is this familiar to any other Debian users?

    Nope, that doesn't sound familiar. Posting the exact error might help!

    Cheers,
