Re: $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/numen/phrases completely overrides /etc/numen a month ago

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

"current user's" was confusing. I just meant how lingering /etc/numen from
older installs would override /usr/share/numen, blocking any updates to
the default phrases made by future releases.

~/.config/numen is safe :)

Re: $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/numen/phrases completely overrides /etc/numen a month ago

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

Hi fenugrec, after thinking about /usr/share/numen again recently, I'm
thinking future versions should use /usr/share/numen and just ignore
/etc/numen. I feel system-wide configuration of numen would rarely be
used, and /etc/numen would just add confusion, especially since a current
user's existing /etc/numen would override the new /usr/share/numen.

Don't feel you need to reply, just thought I'd say in case of any
thoughts!

Great! Thanks for sending the solution. I'll copy paste it here because I
don't think it made it to the mailing list:

Re: compilation error. Has proxy url changed? 2 months ago

Hi Ivan, I'm afraid I don't know why you are getting this issue.

I don't think anything's changed and seeing as github.com/bendahl/uinput
is also failing the same way, I don't think it's related to my packages
but a general issue with the go toolchain.

In my dotool directory, if I run:

	go clean -cache -modcache
	go build

It's successful and only outputs:

	go: downloading git.sr.ht/~geb/opt v0.0.0-20230911153257-e72225a1933c

Re: $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/numen/phrases completely overrides /etc/numen 3 months ago

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

I like the /usr/share suggestion! Recently someone on the chat said they
lost changes due to /etc/numen being overwritten, which I hadn't thought
enough about before.

The transition would be slightly bumpy, with old installed
/etc/numen taking precedence over it, and I know at least
https://github.com/anpandey/numen-nix/blob/master/flake.nix would need
paths updated, but it would probably be worth it.

Re: $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/numen/phrases completely overrides /etc/numen 3 months ago

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

Hi fenugrec, maybe not clarifying the overriding as much as you'd like,
but I think I might change it to:

*numen* uses the default phrases unless given files as arguments, or there
are files ending with *.phrases* in your *$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/numen/phrases/*
directory. The default phrases can be found in the */etc/numen/phrases/*
directory, but should not be edited! (*$XDG_CONFIG_HOME* is *~/.config*
unless set otherwise.)

I'm trying to also cover that you can specify files with the command-line
arguments, and you shouldn't be editing the system-wide phrases that get
replaced on reinstall/update.

Thanks!

Re: Suggestions for transcriptions: realtime, stay in transcription mode, punctuation, correct mistakes 3 months ago

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

Thanks midgard, appreciate the write-up! I've messed about with fancier
transcription a bit with sprec (https://git.sr.ht/~geb/sprec) but I'm
still deciding how to go about things for numen.

I hope so too :) and it's great you found numen useful.
Careful climbing!

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

Great! I'll probably make it the next release of dotool in a few days. And
me too :)

Re: Incorrect key-to-symbol mapping for Neo keyboard layout? 4 months ago

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

Hello,

Could you try with dotool built from https://git.sr.ht/~geb/dotool, as
I'm hoping this might have been fixed already with commits since the
latest release.

$ dotool --version

Re: Pausing/unpausing numen 7 months ago

From John Gebbie to ~geb/numen

Hi f!

You're right, Numen currently selects the best match.

Pretty recently I made a git branch called "unk" for people that were
trying to use Numen like a virtual assistant. It should abort unkown
phrases, which you can see using: --phraselog=/dev/stderr

If you'd like to try it: git pull && git switch unk
and reinstall numen: ./build.sh && sudo ./build.sh install

It will probably be next year before I get round to bringing it into
the master branch.
