Bug Description

Lernid calls the page method render_to_pixmap which is now missing from poppler. I believe this is related to: http://blogs.igalia.com/carlosgc/2011/02/13/gdk-api-removed-from-poppler-glib/

To test:

Download the test.lernid configuration file and the lernid-test-calendar.ics
files.

Edit the test.lernid file to point to the calendar file on your system.

Bring up the test lernid under precise: lernid -v --config /path-to/test.lernid

Lernid will offer to connect you to
Ubuntu-lernid-test. Connect. If the name is wrong the lernid command above
is wrong or the config file can't be found. After connecting the "Lernid Test"
session will start and will appear in the Schedule tab. If this doesn't happen
the config doesn't properly point to the calendar.

A slide should display on the right side of the Session tab.

This bug was fixed in the package lernid - 0.8.2.2ubuntu2

---------------
lernid (0.8.2.2ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * Prepare for application to Ubuntu (universe)

lernid (0.8.2.2ubuntu2~testlernidppa2) precise; urgency=low

  * Dynamically load the schedule each minute at 5 seconds past the minute
    Addresses LP: #925756

  * Slide.py have poppler render to a cairo surface and use a trick to
    get that into the pixmap. (LP: #972069)
    (Technique from diogodivision's "BlingSwitcher" through
    http://www.mikedesjardins.net. Thank you.)
