OLPC Chat activity scrolling bug fixed

Thanks to Marco Pesenti Gritti for looking into the Hippo Canvas issue in the Chat scrolling bug. Chat-34.xo will contain the fix in the next Joyride developer build.

If you have a Ship.2 build (for G1G1) you can’t install the newer version of Chat, but you can apply the fix in the following way:

Open the Terminal activity and type the following:

su
cd /usr/share/activities/Chat.activity/
ls

You should see chat.py – then:

mv chat.py chat.py.old
wget http://dev.laptop.org/~morgan/chat.py

Now if you launch Chat, or join a shared Chat, the scrolling will work correctly.
