Dekko2 Developer Community Thread



  • Is this thread still in use or has the Dekko2 discussion moved elsewhere?

    I filed two new issues in the bug tracker:

    https://gitlab.com/dekkoproject/dekko/issues/134
    https://gitlab.com/dekkoproject/dekko/issues/135



  • This morning I deleted in my IMAP mbox a single mail. I was on the road, i.e. the connection by data mobile, and it seems that the mail was not purged on the server. It is still visible there using another MUA and it is also visible using the same Dekko2 on another OTA-7 device. The mail is not visible, even after restart of Dekko2 on the device from where I did the deletion. The only I can think of is that Dekko2 has a local database of deleted mails. Is this a bug or a feature.

    Btw: Are there any other users of Dekko here? 🙂



  • Yes me for example.
    When we first published dekko 2 for 16.04 in the openstore, it was downloaded over 800 times within 3 days or so. 🙂 And i guess most of the people knew what they were doing... 😉



  • Well, I was asking for a use on a daily runner. Like I do. There is so less discussion traffic here in the forum.



  • @guru Have just been trying this but on wifi. On UT devices it worked OK There was a bit of a delay with nexus 7 catching up with OPO restarting dekko help speed things up as well.
    The biggest delay was gmail app on android that took 10 mins to catch up. Maybe your issue was just down to the mobile connection. Should be able to check on mobile data tomorrow.



  • @guru I use it as my only mail application (ah rarely using mutt on the PC for searching for old mails) on my only phone and daily driver.



  • When I have my FreeBSD laptop or netbook (Acer C720) running, I use mutt, if not I use Dekko since 2015. I even ported mutt to my E4.5 running UT. This was lost when I moved to UBports, but I will definitely recompile it again in a chrooted env because Dekko2 is missing some essential features, for example 'view source' of the mail.

    I have been using dekko/dekko2 regularly for four years but only for reading emails.

    @libremax I am using also for sending, I have the standard problem that it does not pick up the e-mail from contacts and than to send an e-mail I have to play rotating the screen.

    Also if I want to answer some e-mail it is better to do it from the incoming list (swiping from right and selecting the action to be done) than clicking on reply when inside of the e-mail. This way it works perfect, the e-mails are queued and sent.

    Also now with the suru-dark theme I have set with Ubuntu Tweek tool app I notice I can not read well the insert e-mail cells as they are very blank, white.

    Thanks for all the done work and improvements, and happy Dan Chapmann is slowly back. My best regards for all of you.



  • I use Dekko2 daily on my tablet and mobile phone. I must admit though that I read more mails than I send, so I do not encounter many of the issues you do.



  • Reading works mostly (if I do not count rendering problems and crashes/freezes). But, sending is nearly impossible. This morning I wanted to forward a message to my wife because I got the tickets of her flights. It crashed three times on sending the same mail, I gave up. That's why I have had this horrible stupid idea to wipe the cash with the result that all config was wiped too. See here: https://gitlab.com/dekkoproject/dekko/issues/138



  • Hello,

    Are there any plans or milestones for an update of Dekko2? For weeks I do not see any movement in the list of issues in https://gitlab.com/dekkoproject/dekko/issues
    only new issues from time to time.

    This morning I used the old Dekko in my BQ M10 which still runs the latest beta release of Canonical (I was one of the Beta-tester-group). Is it possible to port the old Dekko to UBports OTA-7 or are there any missing infrastructure pieces?

    @guru What we can see : https://gitlab.com/groups/dekkoproject/-/milestones

    What do the expired milestones mean, and the first non-expired w/o any issue?

    And, can you answer my other question re/ the old Dekko? Thanks.



  • @guru Sorry i can't say you more that what i see : It is only a gitlab link which is accessible by everybody. Milestones were planed by Dan Chapman. As you surely know, expired means : not delivered at the planned date. Only him or somebody who knows could bring more detailed answers to your questions.



  • Is there any chance that anybody says something about the future of Dekko2 in UBports?

    Thanks

    The last words I saw about that :

    "[More information about Dekko2 development.

    Dan is extremely busy with it. He is moving Oxide dependent elements towards support by qtwebengine. Not an easy task. If you want to help out, contact him at dekkoproject.org.](https://ubports.com/fr_FR/blog/notre-blog-1/post/ubuntu-touch-q-a-45-210)"



  • I have another new issue with Dekko2 and will file later a bug issue. In my IMAP mailbox sits a mail (sent by me from my company account to transfer two data files). This mail is presented in the list view of the mails without:
    Subject:
    From:
    two lines of body preview
    Only the avatar, the info icon for attachments and the time of sending is shown.
    Selecting this mail for view makes Dekko2 crash.

    In my MUA mutt the mail looks like this:

    I could provide off-forum the full mail for debugging if someone is interested.



  • I've posted this in Support in the thread OTA-9 && battery drain, but I think it goes better here:

    I'm far away from saying that there is no bug in Dekko2, but if finding below is a bug in Dekko2 or a new bug/feature/behavior in the OS is unclear. The high CPU utilization of dekkod is a result of reading from time to time again through one of its database files /home/phablet/.cache/dekko2.dekkoproject/database/qmailstore.db (39 MByte in size) with tons of llseek(2) and read(2) syscalls:

    [pid 22511] _llseek(9, 20623360, [20623360], SEEK_SET) = 0
    [pid 22511] read(9, "\r\0\0\0\1\1o\0\1o\1\27\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 1024) = 1024
    [pid 22511] _llseek(9, 20625408, [20625408], SEEK_SET) = 0
    [pid 22511] read(9, "\r\0\0\0\1\1v\0\1v\2\214\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 1024) = 1024
    [pid 22511] _llseek(9, 22777856, [22777856], SEEK_SET) = 0
    [pid 22511] read(9, "\r\0\0\0\1\1s\0\1s\2\214\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 1024) = 1024
    [pid 22511] _llseek(9, 20626432, [20626432], SEEK_SET) = 0
    [pid 22511] read(9, ^C"\r\0\0\0\1\1s\0\1s\2\225\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 1024) = 1024
    ...
    

    In it log file it says about this:

    [22511] May 13 07:24:41 [Debug] Action completed 96684008800466 result success
    [22511] May 13 07:26:39 [Warning] Would not determine server/action completing

    [22511] May 13 07:26:41 [Warning] Unable to process malformed message removal record for account 4
    ....
    

    I think it's time to remove the Dekko2 installation completely and start again from scratch. The PITA is that there is no way to keep the configuration, one must configure all by hand from scratch. And this (mixing config values with data) is really a bug in Dekko2.



  • I have configured three IMAP+SMTP account in Dekko2 and set the Check interval (minutes) to 60 , hoping with 60 that the interval was in seconds, but not:

    i.e. it tries every few seconds to get new messages. Why?
