Osmo


I installed Osmo from symaptic on Ubuntu Lucid but when i run the programme i get the following error !

osmo

(osmo:2873): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 1 char 27: Invalid UTF-8 encoded text in name - not valid '02:54:04 \x81\xc3\xdb\xcc'

(osmo:2873): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 1 char 27: Invalid UTF-8 encoded text in name - not valid '02:54:04 \x81\xc3\xdb\xcc'
Segmentation fault

The interface of Osmo opens and closes immediately.

What can i do to correct the problem ?

1. Note that these are "Warnings" and not Errors.
2. It seems unhappy about a UTF8 encoding which it probably won't render correctly. I can't tell from the error message whether it is unhappy about the fact that the text is in UTF8 or the way that the text is encoded into UTF8.
3. It's unclear if the segfault that kills Osmo is related to the utf8 encoding problems.
4. Can you post the output to the command
Code:
locale
.
Mine looks like this:
Code:
jdkaye@AttilaII:~$ locale
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=en_GB:en
LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TIME=it_IT.UTF8
LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=
ciao,
jdk

Perhaps changing your locale settings to en_IN.UTF-8 might help.

When i enter the command locale -a i get the following result, where i cannot see en_IN.UTF.8
bn_BD
bn_IN
C
en_AG
en_AU.utf8
en_BW.utf8
en_CA.utf8
en_DK.utf8
en_GB.utf8
en_HK.utf8
en_IE.utf8
en_IN
en_NG
en_NZ.utf8
en_PH.utf8
en_SG.utf8
en_US.utf8
en_ZA.utf8
en_ZW.utf8
hi_IN
POSIX
zh_CN.utf8
zh_HK.utf8
zh_SG.utf8
zh_TW.utf8
In that case do i have to shift to en_GB.utf8 ? or is there any way to instal the missing locales ?

You already have en_GB.UTF8 installed. (see above). You might try reconfiguring your locales by using the setlocale command. Just type
Code:
man setlocale
and you will see how to use it. I would change all your en_IN locales to en_IN.UTF8.

Ok I will try that. But i would like to know if any one has used Osmo ? I just wanted to test it.
Is KOrganizer / Google calendar better than Osmo ?
I am looking for a good PIM where i could maintain all my contacts and daily schedules and reminders. One which has very good features to take backup and its format is open and well accepted with most of the applications. I found Google Calendar to be good but it is not not available offline without gears.

I use Osmo on a daily basis. Can't really say whether its better than KOrganizer (I'm not that fond of KDE), but I find Osmo very useful. I prefer it to Google Calendar since I don't always have internet access.

Backup is easy - all its files are stored in ~/.osmo. Files are pretty standard XML. It has the ability to encrypt backups. If its built with the right flags, it is iCAL compatible

I may be biased - I maintain it for Vector Linux, and I've just started building it for Salix as well.

Paul.

I wonder if you have a missing dependancy? Depending on how it is built, Osmo may need libical, libsyncml, libgtkhtml and libgringotts. If one of those is missing, it will fail.

Thanks. Glad you like it.

Have you tried running locale again to see what your settings are now?

toothandnail : when i wanted to install :
libgtkhtml2-0
libwbxml2-0
libsyncml 2\
i got the warning : software cannot be authenticated.
What is the problem ?

Jdkaye :

locale
LANG=en_IN
LC_CTYPE="en_IN"
LC_NUMERIC="en_IN"
LC_TIME="en_IN"
LC_COLLATE="en_IN"
LC_MONETARY="en_IN"
LC_MESSAGES="en_IN"
LC_PAPER="en_IN"
LC_NAME="en_IN"
LC_ADDRESS="en_IN"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_IN"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_IN"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_IN"
LC_ALL=

I have the same feeling about what is in your sig. I can feel the importance it even more because at present i am working in a country that is on the other extreme end of this concept. . . . . . CHINA !!!

@3dmatrix. You still don't have your utf8 locales selected as the ones being used. I haven't used dpkg-reconfigure for a while but isn't there an place where your can indicate what your default locale is? If yes, that's where you want to put en_IN.UTF8.

Yes, I know the PRC pretty well. I worked at Guangwai for a couple of years. It was very ... interesting. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "the other extreme end of this concept" but it's early in the morning still. Maybe I'll figure it out later.
ciao,
