Re: Screen Settings

If your screen has all kinds of lights on it. for things like HDD activity, LAN activity, E-mail. we are going to be able to set those lights on or off. Pretty cool when coupled with EG. we can use those lights as Notifications other then their intended use. I'm really interested by this feature !!

Re: MQTT Client

yes i'm using a laptop, I mentioned it a few posts earlier :) so if I understand well, for this specific matter (using a laptop) WMI works better than ctypes ? Because with WMI not only I can get the current brightness level, I can also set it to whatever I like. Well anyway, we can continue this co...

Re: MQTT Client

thanks Kevin for this complete explanation, I knew there was a good reason behind it, now I know what it is ! ;) the only drawback for me is that WMI has been around for so many years, and seems "easier" to use, I'm not very familiar with ctypes and API function calls, but that's something I can lea...

Re: MQTT Client

this is something missing in EG for such a long time ;) the only way I've found to do this is with WMI, but the WMI lib needs to be loaded. you can download the wmi zip file here : https://pypi.org/project/WMI/#files then open the zip file and place the wmi.py file here : %programfiles(x86)%\EventGh...

Re: MQTT Client

hi, this is "normal" each event can also carry a payload, and you need to work with the payload to achieve what you need. MQTT.eventghost u" volume-mute " --> the blue part is the event --> the red part is the payload so you need to make a small script to identify each payload and assign a task to i...

Re: XMPP Plus

Hi, can you tell me what XEP are enabled so far in the plugin ? (is there a way to display them in the pane when the plugin starts ?). I've found some information that might be useful, it's about the XEP-0198 implementation : "Stream Management allows XMPP to survive small network outages and change...

Re: XMPP Plus

I have found a workaround : - I first disable the XMPP plugin - then connect to the VPN server - then start the XMPP plugin The only problem with this workaround is when the vpn connection is dropped (it happens sometimes), and in this case I have the same problem as before, I need to restart EG to ...

Re: XMPP Plus

Is this a real world use? Is this when these problems are happening to you? what do you think ? :) of course, or else why would I bother to request a fix for something I don't use ? :P I didn't write the SleekXMPP library. it's got a lot of voodoo code in it. and as it seems the author is no longer...
