18:23 anuragc alsroot: so are you suggesting that we should try and lower that cpu load too?
18:24 alsroot anuragc: the thing is that sugar caches icons, so if it was too long to show the 1st frame, it will be only for the first time. I meant there is no need in struggling w/ 1st frame, cache will play for it
18:26 anuragc alsroot: I get your point to use the cache stored icons , but how do we access the cache?
18:26 alsroot anuragc: it works implicitly
18:27 anuragc: see icon.py in sugar-toolkit
18:27 anuragc alsroot: but i tried to benchmark the pulsing icon woth and without my fix and i found improved results regarding the delay of the firstframe
18:29 alsroot: also this ticket askes to reduce the first frame delay only so I didnt work to improve the activity load time. Also there weresome sugesstion to replace the current pulsing icon with a new and better alternative
18:29 alsroot anuragc: you need to check cache state while your benchmark, it could be that changin colors while pulsing renew cache (but it needs to be checked)
18:30 anuragc: w/ alpha channel model and not renewed icon cache we will get fast loading (w/o 1st frame issue)
18:32 anuragc alsroot: can you please expand a bit on the alpha channel model
18:34 alsroot anuragc: you just make an image more/less transparent,
18:34 ..while displaying it via cairo
18:35 anuragc alsroot: sure i get your point now
18:37 alsroot: correct me if i am wrong, I think here we want to replace the current pulsing icon which changes colurs to generate the pulse animation with an icon which changes its alpha value (that is turn transparent and opaque sequentially)
18:38 alsroot anuragc: yup, but it is only my thought, implementation will be too invasive and it needs to be acced by other people
18:38 *acked
18:41 anuragc alsroot: last time on my discussion of the topic with bernie and tomeu they also suggested a similar innovative approach like yours , they wanted to replace the animation witha a static svg icon that will be surrounded by a ring of dots glowing by and by to complete the ring (Like the one we have in our XO boot screen)
18:42 alsroot: but atlast they asked me to some how lower the present laag and planned to work on it later in for os a enhancement and not defect
18:46 alsroot anuragc: makes sense as well, anyway I'm personally (but I'm not a maint of this part of sugar sources) ok w/ this hack
18:49 anuragc alsroot: Can you please let me know who is the maintainer of this part of sugar services?
18:51 alsroot anuragc: http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/D[…]m/Release/Modules
