Galculator

Galculator is a calculator app available in Debian. Debian 10 comes with version 2.1.4.

I seem to have found an odd bug in the software, so am documenting here to see if others can reproduce.

The display should be able to handle numbers bigger than 999. However it seems that is not the case if you use a separator (,) in between big numbers (which is designed to make it easier to read)

Consider 1,000,000 vs 1000000

Galculator

This shows the software working as expected.

Setting Separator

After setting a comma ( , ) as a Separator and entering a long number, we get a problem with the display.

Display bug

According to the Debian tracker bullseye will have 2.1.4-1.1.

I am not sure if this happens in Debian 11, but I am just reporting this here, I can take a video later on, but that will just illustrate the same as above.

I would guess this can be reported to the Bug Tracking System if it can be reproduced.

My system here is:-

Client: HexChat 2.14.2 • OS: Debian 10.9 • CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     E7500  @ 2.93GHz (1.60GHz) • Memory: Physical: 2.8 GiB Total (1.5 GiB Free) Swap: 2.9 GiB Total (2.9 GiB Free) • Storage: 546.4 GB / 647.2 GB (100.9 GB Free) • VGA: Intel Corporation 82Q35 Express Integrated Graphics Controller @ Intel Corporation 82Q35 Express DRAM Controller • Uptime: 5h 56m 1s

Bullseye Presentation

A few years ago, I found that there was not an up-to-date presentation for the upcoming release of Debian at the time. I therefore set about creating one.

This is now an ongoing project, my personal remit is to keep this updated by researching information about the upcoming release(s) of Debian. The next release is Debian 11 (Bullseye) as this is now frozen then I am working on the update.

Presentation is in Beamer, which is a LaTeX package for creating presentations. I am however using Overleaf to create the document.

I am on IRC (oftc) as zleap if anyone wants to discuss further. I will also be at the DebConf Planning meeting on the 24th.
