14:25 Plecto hello everybody
14:25 bowtie_ Plecto: hi
14:25 Plecto any version of Padre on Mac OSX taylored for retina displays?
14:26 Plecto tailored
14:26 Plecto hi bowtie
14:26 Plecto and thanks for answering me
14:26 bowtie_ Plecto: what's a retina display :))
14:26 Plecto :)
14:26 Plecto you are kidding me, right?
14:27 Plecto :)
14:28 bowtie_ Plecto: is it a graphics/monitor standard like: cgi, ega, hrec xga :)
14:29 Plecto it's the kind of monitors used by recent Macbooks
14:29 bowtie_ Plecto: yes, but is it a graphics standard or marking hype
14:30 Plecto http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retina_Display
14:30 Plecto I'm using Padre 0.92 on my macbook equipped with a retina display
14:30 Plecto but all texts appears blurred
14:32 bowtie_ Plecto: ok, I get it know, have you had the same experience with any other apps
14:33 Plecto yes
14:33 bowtie_ Plecto: ok take a look in Tools -> Prefs -> editor iirc and pick another font
14:34 Plecto as an example Adobe Acrobat has suffered this problem until very recently
14:34 Plecto it's not a problem of fonts
14:34 Plecto but of how texts are rendered
14:34 Plecto Eclipse also suffered this problem
14:35 Plecto and then they solved it
14:35 bowtie_ Plecto: do you get the same with other Wx apps
14:35 Plecto check here
14:35 Plecto http://wildperl.com/padreonosx/
14:35 Plecto and read the post of
14:35 Plecto Pierre
14:35 Plecto on April 24, 2013 at 12:12 am
14:35 Plecto he reported the same issue I'm talking about
14:38 Plecto the issue for Eclipse is documented here
14:38 Plecto https://bugs.eclipse.org/b​ugs/show_bug.cgi?id=382972
14:40 bowtie_ Plecto: it's nice to see tome blog is so active
14:41 bowtie_ Plecto: have you tested this rendering issue with: https://metacpan.org/module/Wx::Demo
14:42 bowtie_ Plecto: that way you will be able to see if it is a Wx issue
14:43 Plecto no, I didn't
14:43 Plecto how can I install and check it?
14:43 bowtie_ Plecto: Hmm: cpan Wx::DEmo
14:44 bowtie_ Plecto: Hmm: cpan Wx::Demo
14:44 bowtie_ Plecto: if you get the same gui issues you can ask Mark or the Wx devs
14:47 bowtie_ Plecto: are you going to add updates to tome blog, for your fellow OSX users
14:48 Plecto just downloaded Wx:Demo
14:48 Plecto trying to install it
14:49 Plecto Warning: prerequisite Class::Accessor::Fast 0.2 not found. Warning: prerequisite File::chdir 0.06 not found. Warning: prerequisite UNIVERSAL::require 0.1 not found. Writing Makefile for Wx::Demo
14:49 Plecto any idea?
14:49 Plecto they seem only warnings
14:49 Plecto but than the make command fails
14:50 bowtie_ Plecto: yes install with cpan or cpanm
14:50 bowtie_ Plecto: tip go look this up -> cpanm --installdeps .
14:53 bowtie_ Plecto: or : perl Makefile.PL
14:53 bowtie_ make installdeps
14:58 Plecto do you know how I can update CPAN?
15:00 Plecto it seems I was able to install Wx::Demo using CPAN
15:00 Plecto how can I execute it now?
15:01 bowtie_ Plecto: https://metacpan.org/source/MD​OOTSON/Wx-Demo-0.21/README.txt
15:03 Plecto sorry, doesn't help
15:04 bowtie_ Plecto: under Mac OS X you will need to run
15:04 bowtie_ 'wxPerl -S wxperl_demo.pl'.
15:06 bowtie_ Plecto: sorry, but I do not have OSX here
15:13 Plecto which is latest version of Padre available?
15:15 bowtie_ Plecto: you have a choice Padre 0.98 from CPAN or -> Padre 0.99 (aka trunk) from http://padre.perlide.org/trac/wiki/Development
15:15 Plecto ok
15:58 Plecto it seems I was able to update Padre to version 0.98 using CPAN
15:58 Plecto but the blurry text problem is still there
16:01 bowtie_ Plecto: you need to check with Wx-Demo, then we will know if this is a Padre issue or a Wx issue
16:05 Plecto I installed Wx-Demo using CPAN
16:05 Plecto but then I'm not able to run it!
16:05 Plecto :(
16:05 Plecto Wx::Demo is up to date (0.21).
16:08 Plecto can I run WxDemo from CPAN?
16:09 bowtie_ Plecto: you run WxDemo from a terminal
16:10 bowtie_ Plecto: well thats how I run it on Linux
16:13 Plecto Can't find wxperl_demo.pl on PATH.
16:13 Plecto and I don't know where CPAN installed WX::DEmo
16:13 Plecto :(
16:14 bowtie_ Plecto: try perl -V that should give you clue
16:15 Plecto I know the path where Perl is installed
16:16 Plecto but cannot find WxDemo in it!
16:16 Plecto :(
16:16 bowtie_ Plecto:  look for -> wxperl_demo.pl
16:29 Plecto done!!
16:29 Plecto and, YES, I confirm the issue is present in WxDemo also
16:30 Plecto :(
16:30 Plecto can I send you a screenshot of what I see?
16:32 sewi joined #padre
16:34 Plecto bowtie?
16:52 Plecto still there?
17:00 Plecto hello
17:01 Plecto the problem of blurry text with Apple retina displays is an issue of Wx and not a specific issue of Padre
