Bug Description

Binary package hint: lernid

When I started Lernid I had no idea that it successfully connected because both chat windows were empty as nobody was typing anything.
Lernid should give the user some kind of indication that it's connected, maybe show a channel topic or put a status indicator somewhere.

It should be very easy to start with the classroom and classroom-chat with a background of light grey and then make the backrounds white when connected. That should be hard to miss.

Looking at 0.81 this looks to be fixed already. Can you confirm, John?

A message is produced, and the number of users in the chatroom is displayed.

I view this hand in hand with LP: #604773, however. I run Lernid with an increased size so I can more easily view both the session tab and a fair number of classroom messages. Those two events above are small and aren't very apparent if you aren't paying attention, and after 25 seconds waiting for the irc connection process to finish it's easy not to be paying attention.

This bug was fixed in the package lernid -

lernid ( oneiric; urgency=low

  * Oneiric release. (LP: #844923)
  * Merge changes to convert from python-central to dh_python2

lernid ( natty; urgency=low

  * Ready for release

lernid ( natty; urgency=low

  * Make schedule a bit easier to read by making font used for instructors one size smaller

lernid (0.8.2) natty; urgency=low

  * Add 'avoid-desktopcouch' debugging option.

  * Remove #ubuntu-classroom-es. Assign correct calendar to #ubuntu-charlas

  * Document the following merges in debian/changelog:

  * Add instructor names to schedule.

  * Add option -d (--debug) for message received and members changed events as
      well as for all other verbose messages. Makes --verbose less verbose.
      Fixes LP: #816080.

  * Couch desktopcouch in try: clause; ignore desktopcouch database if
      unavailable. Fixes LP: #795138 and LP: #516619 by this circumvention.

  * Use a config file as backup for desktopcouch. Window sizes and pane settings
      will not be restored. The config file is recreated each time lernid
      is run, whether or not desktopcouch is available.

  * Get the events from /etc/lernid-classrooms.d/* rather than from the
      Internet. Remove all but the last weeks events and scroll down
      to the current time. LP: #528870.

  * Add /etc/lernid-classrooms.d/ubuntu-classroom and

  * Add ubuntu-charlas chatroom choice. These implement the
      lernid-config-file-improvements blueprint
      basic requirements. Also fix LP: #533279 and LP: #793033.

  * Add button to open the slide file in the user's (external) browser.
      Add tooltip text to slide window giving the slide url.
      Resolves LP: #830856 and LP: #530817.

  * Add new [slidefile url] and [slidefile url 3] instructor commands to
      load a slide file during a session, and to load the slide file and then
      switch to the page.

  * Load slide file asynchronously using gio (rather than using threads).
      Again fixes LP: #530119. Fixes LP: #795347. Report downloading progress.
      Restablishes these two functions originally created by Peeyoosh

  * Remove bold effect from the room names in the classroom and chatroom label.
      Include the '#' in the name, if someone had abbreviated it.
      Fixes LP: #806797.

  * Add a ZERO WIDTH SPACE and SIX-PER-EM SPACE following "QUESTION: " to help
      classbot pick out questions without regard to the word "QUESTION" as its
      language might not match the one lernid is using. Addresses LP: 808570.

  * Look for classbot messages in a case-insensitive manner. Mark its messages
      by making them italic. Fixes LP: #794126

  * Retrieve the value of "QUESTION:" from the session or the event. Look first
      for a question_token value in the session, then for a locale for the
      session, then for a question_token value for the event, then for a locale
      value for the event.

  * If locale is used and begins with es, translate QUESTION to spanish, otherwise
      leave as english.

  * Added a server variable to e...
