@robdixn
@grahamgilbert ok thanks, I've done that and I think it's worked because it's working in this chat

@andreykurilin
@grahamperrin page you posted, includes information that gitter supports linux. But actually there is only debian-based application available..

wtf did the chat "send" button go?
or was there not one? - ive been trying to post a message in another channel but the enter key just adds a newline - no way to actually send the messgae
nm i think figured it out - seems i was somehow stuck in "compose mode" - though i dont think that feature existed last time i used this - i had to exit compose mode so that the enter would send the message
bill auger
@bill-auger
terrible HCI folks - add a "send" button when in compose mode - or just use SHIFT-ENTER to add newline like every other chat program on the planet
oo the dark theme is nice tho - thanks for that
also thanks for the IRC bridge - thats why i dont usually need to know about these new features
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
@bill-auger There is SHIFT+ENTER for newline.
I have no idea why you're criticizing them for not having it when they have it.
bill auger
@bill-auger
because i was stuck in a mode where it was not possible to send a simple message and i had no idea how i got into that mode
and i can not imagine why anyone would ever want to be in a mode where you could not actually send your message - especially if SHIFT-ENTER already work in normal mode
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
I use that mode all the time; Don't activate it if you don't want to.
bill auger
@bill-auger
but i did not know that i did activate it
i had no idea such a feature existed
i eventually found the button that control this but it is nearly invisible
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
The invisible-ness is meant to make it so you don't click it by accident... Isn't there usually a hint when you activate it, which pops up?
bill auger
@bill-auger
i dont think so
all i did was sign in and type a message - and i could not send it
maybe i hit the shortcut CTRL-/ accidentally but i saw no indication - nothing on the screen changes when you press that button
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
For me, I get a little bubble with the shortcut on it that pops up.
bill auger
@bill-auger
when i hover over the button yes
nothing changes when you press it - there is no indication that you are in a mode that sending chat is not possible
and again i can not imagine how such a mode is in any way useful
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
Because sometimes people want to type things with multiple lines...? I find it very useful.
bill auger
@bill-auger
but you said yourself that SHIFT-ENTER accomplishes that
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
Yes, but if you're writing a long message it's easier to switch modes.
To avoid accidentally posting everything.
bill auger
@bill-auger
IF you actually know about these modes
for someone who did not read the entire documentation - this will be confusing
anyway i mean this not to complain as my personal opinion - its clearly poor design - so to raise the issue so that maybe someone will give it a second look
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
Fair enough. Though I would prefer if the feature wasn't removed entirely.
bill auger
@bill-auger
it is very easy for developers being power-users themselves to forget how confusing their program may be to new users
all they need to do is add a "SEND" button - problem solved
a big fat one - not invisible
done

Hi again! Since there was no the answer to my original question, should repost it again - Is there anywhere linux-version of Gitter app packed in RPM package? I found only DEB-package
Lisa Zilinski
