I recently swapped two older phones for newer 7965s. Configuration was done through CCA.
As long as the phones were not provisioned their GUI looked better then after provisioning them.
Basically the font within the soft-key-labels is noticable smaller when they are provisioned. Also the string which is shown in the lower left corner (to display the company name or whatever you want) is a lot more narrow so the single letters are mashed into each other.
Without provisioning the phones that said string line also had a nice darkened background which made it easier to read in front of light background-images.
After provisioning both phones - one phone still has the darker-lines (also for the lines with active lines) the other phone is missing them completely.
Both phones have the issue with the smaller font in the soft keys and the letter-mashing in the string on the lower left.
Both phones use the same template within CCA and the same localization settings. Any idea what's happingn/wrong?
I attached two pictures - first one is unprovisioned second one is provisioned. You can see the darkened line, and the mashing. The smaller font is much clearer when you sit in front of the phone - in the pictures it's a little bit hard to actually notice it.
the font-size probably is locale related and not load related. I did a factory rest on one of the phones. First it flashes the factory load, then it upgrades to the UC560 load. Between reboots I clearly see the large font. Someone reported a similar issue: https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2075275
After the last reboot the phone says sth. like applying locale - and then refreshes. After this the fonts are small.
Any ideas on how to get those darker lines back for the line lines?
where do I get a "good" copy of the locale *.tar file? Currently my UC560 is on 8.6.0 - I also downloaded the 8.6.1 software pack and took a peek into the locale frome that software pack.
There were some changes for the XML locale files for the SPA-Phones but the be-sccp.jar - which should be the locale file for the 7945/7965 is unchanged. So I see no point in uploading the file, if the very same (bitwise) exists already on the box. The question would be where do I get a correct be-sccp.jar file (need it in German and English...)
poking around within those be-sccp.jar files (German and English) I found some interesting differences within the target-skin.xml
So basically an UI-Element called "kemtext" should be larger for the German version as it is for the English one. Is there any description what those UIComponents actually arre? Does anyone have a stock be-sccp.jar for comparision?
Within the jar is also the sc-font.xml for the german jar it says
for the US-english one it actually says
I don't know whether this is just descriptive or if the phone actually discards reading that file because it expects "United_States"
