0000241: Make bar graph be pixel granular rather than chunks of 10 pixels or so.
What it says, if possible, low priority, obviously.

As Dave of MTX fame once said, users that see no immediate progress may end up confused or concerned. Apparently I am one of those. In the event that I screwed up and forgot mtx was running it doesnt move, but i'm so used to waiting for it to move that I don't realise instantly. Please, make it pixel granular and make it border to border too, move the rx/tx leds elsewhere or preferably remove them until they work and then move them elsewhere :-)

When is the last time you programmed a progress bar?
During the erase the it erases in chunks then updates the progress bar after every chunk. Are you asking that it performs updates in between ?

Sean, looks like your code is fine! But I wasn't imagining it. I just did a load on the mac (through a hub to be safe) and it works smoothly. Therefore it's a look&feel thing on linux with a standard qt lib. Can this behaviour be overridden and if not, what can we do? I can take a video if you can't reproduce this at your end. Which lib versions of qt are you using?

Interesting, I'll see what I can dig up. Thanks for sharing your observation!

Perhaps you can just try explicitly setting the style to something cross platform like this:

http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/qplastiquestyle.html [^]

That would remove all the "the buttons look funny on osx/deb/win" shit but be less natural for each platform. OR, you could just do this on Linux and let win be win and mac be mac? or just NOT do this on mac?
