  • Name/IRC nick: remote
  • Topic: PulseAudio update
  • Some details about the topic: I’d like to inquire into PulseAudio version bump. Version 15 brings high quality codecs support for BT headphones. Is it planned?
  • Approx. time needed: 3 min
  • Name/IRC nick: poetaster
  • Topic: RGB channel swapping in Canvas, Label, etc.
  • Some details about the topic: drawImage of Canvas renders images channel swapped. More details below.
  • Approx. time needed: 5-10
  • Substitute (optional):

These are not exactly duplicates. It’s possible that the origins for both are the same. But a qml Label doing richtext rendering is something very different from a Canvas object.

In either case, I’ve been digging into the QT sources to find which bloody bitmask is swapping channels and still haven’t found it. If I do, I want a bounty :slight_smile:

I just ran into the issue, with Canvas, in the context of harbour-stopmotion. It’s pure QML, so it’s not able to use Canvas as it’s supposed to be. As it stands, I’ll take the fixes that (with @attah’s help) I implemented in ‘Paint’ and port them to harbour-stopmotion, but that is a real pita for such a trivial, probably one line, bug.

To expand see: which applies the same fixes I applied to “Paint”. Beside the RBG<->GBR swapping it also fixes the issue that image meta data (orientation for Portrait photos) is not being used when loading a url directly to Canvas.


Great that I had only 9 bugs. I moved yours to the list. Thank you for your comment!

Ah, just to confuse the issue. If I create a simple ImageProvider and use QImageReader setting autoTransform to true, on 3.4 (32 bit, Volla) this makes images pushed to canvas: have the correct orientation, AND the correct colors.

On 4.4, (64 bit Volla and Xperia 10ii) it corrects orientation properly, but get’s the color wrong anyway.
