Xee, part 2 (548)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2009-07-22 10:34 ID:J9qvJKxH [Del]

This thread is for questions and discussion about Xee. Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous thread: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1122405906/

There is also a bug tracker for Xee here: http://code.google.com/p/xee/issues/list

If you have a bug to report, it is better to post it on the bug tracker if you can, so it will not be forgotten.

539 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2014-01-10 04:32 ID:Heaven [Del]


Can you file bugs on the bug tracker about those, giving more information? Neither of those are normal behaviours, and I haven't seen them happen before, so I'll need more information.

excuse upfront for being stupid maybe, but I have my lic now a year and I cant figure out how to actually _do_ the labeling with shortcuts.. Do u have to press more buttons or many at once, or how does it work with only one key?

Thank you,
great program,

Have been using Xee for years and as I was setting up a new computer I found Xee on the app store. Great!

Is there any way of turning off the sandbox mode? Either that or can I swap for the "regular" version?

544 Name: netizen : 2014-01-30 01:11 ID:Y8Y9RHyv [Del]

How can I open two or more images with Xee in order to compare them side by side?

545 Name: Jo : 2014-02-27 07:07 ID:7jvgUvbk [Del]

I have a bought version of Xee (not from the app store) and have a couple of requests.

1) I would love a way to jump straight to a specific photo by number. I have had situations where a Xee crashed, or I logged out, and I wanted to go to a specific photo by number (i.e. 1243 of 7000) in a folder but there seems no way.

2) A "check for updates" button would be great.


546 Name: Anonymous : 2014-03-21 14:13 ID:S1ZdT+qa [Del]

Is there a way to browse between .zip files?

I read comics that are archived as .zip files and it'd be nice if I could just directly move to the next .zip file in the directory after I've gotten to the last image instead of having to open it separately.

The Wakaba and Kareha support thread, part 3 (476)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-01-07 09:57 ID:eLRTX7Vk [Del]

This thread is for all your simple questions about installing and running Wakaba or Kareha, that just require quick answers. Please don't create new threads for issues like that, post them in here instead.

Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous two threads:

Also check the documentation: http://wakaba.c3.cx/docs/docs.html

There is also a setup guide by Anon: http://wiki.iiichan.net/index.php?title=Wakaba_and_Kareha_Setup_Guide

467 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-17 21:52 ID:OGXnEN+6 [Del]

So what's up with get_decoded_hashref()? Its used in very few places and as far as I can tell everything wakaba stores in the db has already been through decode_string. What am I missing?

468 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-19 23:35 ID:Heaven [Del]

See http://perldoc.perl.org/perlunicode.html#Porting-code-from-perl-5.6.X.

The charset situation in Wakaba is a confusing mess. IIRC, the wrapper functions are either used to retain compatibility with Perl 5.6, or to retrieve Unicode data from a non-Unicode database, or both. Note how the utf8 pragma isn't used anywhere in the script, while the encoding pragma is used sparsely.

It's been a few years since I've done anything with Wakaba, but I recall having to use get_decoded_hashref() or its arrayref counterpart every time I wanted to retrieve text that might contain Unicode.

469 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-20 10:20 ID:Heaven [Del]

Just noticed that Wakaba doesn't even set the tables it creates as UTF-8. I wonder how much performance I could gain by ditching compatibility for ancient versions of Perl and non-UTF-8 databases...

470 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-22 16:51 ID:OGXnEN+6 [Del]

Where does one find out how to examine file headers like Wakaba does for images? I added webm support to Wakaba and I can't really do much but rely on ffmpeg to tell me if the file is proper or not. So far it works perfectly but I feel like I should just throw random files at ffmpeg and expect nothing to go wrong.

471 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-23 21:31 ID:r9TYPpqN [Del]

>>469 The biggest gain I had was adding another index to each table. A board like http://www.chansluts.com/general/girls/ saves at least 15 seconds on a rebuild. The index that gives the huge boost? "parent".

I also converted everything to UTF-8, as well as using InnoDB.

472 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-24 06:59 ID:Heaven [Del]

I was considering adding an index. Only reason I haven't yet is because WAHa didn't in the first place, and I'm pretty sure he still knows better than me in most cases.

An appropriate representation of the requested resource link could not be found on this server.

What's your setup like? That doesn't look like an nginx error message so it has to be apache or lighttpd. Do you also get this error when you click on "Last 50 posts"?

I'm using Wakaba. I basically 775'd all the .pl files in the folder's index. Maybe I had to do it wall the files or something?

【Wakaba】 Admin tripcodes -ATTEMPT- (16)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-05 12:29 ID:5DY64FJB [Del]

So I decided to try my luck getting Admin tripcodes to work with Wakaba.

After line 139 in futaba_style.pl add:

<if $email><if $name eq 'admname'><if $trip eq 'admtrip'><span class="admin"><a href="<var $email>"><var $name><var $trip> [Admin]</a></span></if></if></if>
<if !$email><if $name eq 'admname'><if $trip eq 'admtrip'><span class="admin"><var $name><var $trip> [Admin]</span></if></if></if>

Replace admname with Admin's name.
Replace admtrip with Admin's output tripcode including the trip characters ('!' by default).
You can remove <var $trip> from both lines and simply have it so that it shows admname [Admin]
For multiple admins, simply repeat the code above onto the very next line.

Go into your \css\ folder and edit the css styles.

It's not hard to add sticky, permasage and close options to Wakaba, if anything it's harder to add new features to Kareha. Capcodes are useful for having a mod post to make warnings, etc in threads (or just wanting to be faggy and posting with colours). Should be easy to add as well.

8 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-18 17:49 ID:Heaven [Del]

I've found both scripts to be quite flexible in their own ways. It does largely depend on what sorts of things you're trying to do with them, though.

Hey, I am having trouble getting this to work. I am supposed to put it after:

<label><input type="checkbox" name="delete" value="<var $num>" />

Right? I was thinking that if a new version of wakaba might have been released since 2008, line 139 might have changed.

Would appreciate any help, thanks! :)

13 Name: Anonymous : 2011-10-15 02:31 ID:eH3fLyNv [Del]

Any chance you could update this to work with data from a database?

E.g. wakaba_staff

num - 1
name - Admin
tripcode - !4uce84

And loop through each row until it finds a match? It would be great for multiple admins, and no need to make file edits each time. :)

14 Name: Anonymous : 2011-11-07 11:29 ID:Heaven [Del]

I've never understood what's so hard about adding cap codes... Its just a few lines in wakaba.pl, and nothing more. Are you guys trying to get it working outside of the manager post section?

500 Internal Server Error (402)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-02-21 17:46 ID:FqgLpoAw (Replies) [Del]

Since 500 Internal Server Errors aren't ever really caused by Wakaba or Kareha themselves, but are still a big problem for lots of people, I'm setting up this thread to discuss various problems and solutions related to them.

393 Name: Anonymous : 2013-01-30 02:53 ID:Heaven [Del]

Well, there you go, you probably messed up the script somehow. Try running it in the command line and see if it spits out errors, perhaps?

for some reason, no perl scripts are working for me.

tried a simple test script as well, using the hashbang my host says to use, although I've tried many different hashbangs, and I've tried all the scripts at permissions 755 and 777


print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><body><h1>Perl is working!</h1></body></html>";

When I attempt to access the .pl, any of them, my browsers want to download the file and thats it. I am assuming that somehow I am flubbing up the executable, but I haven't found any info yet.

are you hosting this yourself? if yes, i have no idea what's wrong (except maybe the perl dir being incorrect).
else: check that you are allowed to perl (check the host's website (maybe you'll find something in the FAQ or packet options), maybe send the support an email); check perl dir is correct

Archives.app (33)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-10-10 15:00 ID:hvAY9RLB [Del]

Well, another addition to the The Unarchiver family of programs has been released: Archives for iOS.

It is available here: http://itunes.apple.com/app/archives/id562790811?ls=1&mt=8
And the homepage is here: http://archives.c3.cx/

It's much like The Archive Browser, but for iOS. It lets you browse and preview the contents of archives on the iPhone and iPad, and lets you open files in other apps if you have any installed that handle a particular file type.

If there are bug reports or feature requests, post them on the The Unarchiver bug tracker: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

(It's better to post them there than in this thread, because if they are posted in here I might forget about them.)

Since I'm not entirely sure how people will want to use this program, I was thinking of putting up some possible improvements I could make, and let people say which one says good on the bug tracker. I will post again once I have that set up.

I forgot to announce it earlier, but 1.4 is out, with mostly the same fixes as the earlier The Unarchiver release:

  • Added support for XIP files.
  • Fixed some crashes and unsupported files for RAR.
  • Better support for RAR Mac OS X SFX files.
  • Fixed crashes for certain CAB and PDF files.
  • Added support for comments in Amiga LhA files.

And now I have, and Apple approved it in record time, so I am going to release this ahead of new updates for The Unarchiver and The Archive Browser. Those will be coming, though.

Changes are:

  • Updated visual design for iOS 7.
  • Add support for PMA files.
  • Better support for broken Zip files.
  • Fix bugs in handling of NSIS and MSI files.

The Archive Browser (141)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-03-20 18:00 ID:rFsOye/G [Del]

So, along with the release of The Unarchiver 3.0 comes another new things: The Archive Browser. This is the often-requested version that lets you browse archives and preview their contents before extracting. However, since this is not a program that I personally need, this one will actually cost a few dollars. Buy it if this is what you really need, or buy it if you want to support the development of The Unarchiver!


For now, bug reports and feature requests can go on the The Unarchiver bug tracker:


It is much better to post them there than in this thread, because I tend to forget things that are not on the bug tracker.

I'm one of the folks who would love to be able to edit a file in an archive and have it saved back in the archive file. As it stands, I can do that, and see the edit has been saved in the quick-view, but when I close the archive and open it again, only the original file is there. All I want to do with this is update my password file and keep it encrypted, without having to extract, edit, encrypt, then delete the non-encrypted file. Thanks!

Some time ago I've translated Wakaba's interface into my native language (Ukrainian). Since German and Japanese translations were already included in the distribution, I thought you might want to add another one.

What is the 'official policy' regarding translations? If you are willing to add them, I can submit at least one more one (Polish).
