PostPosted: Sun 05 Aug 2012, 16:02    Post subject:  Audacity 2.0.1 Pet
Subject description: inc .desktop and filetype script
 

Here's my attempt at compiling Audacity 2.0.1 for Puppy.

==Installation==
Install audacity-2.0.1-i486.pet
9.10MB

==Compatibility==
Works on Polarpup 005 (lucid based), Slacko 5.31 and Exprimo. Any feed back welcome, especially on compatibility how to trim down file size.

==Components==
Audacity binary can be installed separately (without libraries). Could be useful if you already have wxWidgets (gtk u) installed. In this case you will still need to add- libFLAC++.so.6.2.0, libSoundTouch.so.1.0.0, libjack.so.0.0.28, libtwolame.so.0.0.0

audacity_BIN-2.0.1-i486.pet


==Libraries included with package (not with BIN)==
Here is a list of the support libraries.
(I've tested on polar and slacko. I've included libjack.so.0.0.28, as slacko doesn't come with this lib)
Code:

/usr/lib/
|-- libFLAC++.so.6.2.0
|-- libSoundTouch.so.1.0.0
|-- libjack.so.0.0.28
|-- libtwolame.so.0.0.0
|-- libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_baseu_net-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_baseu_xml-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_gtk2u_aui-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_gtk2u_html-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_gtk2u_qa-2.8.so.0.8.0
|-- libwx_gtk2u_richtext-2.8.so.0.8.0
`-- libwx_gtk2u_xrc-2.8.so.0.8.0


==Recording==
Some things to consider If your recording with Audacity-

A) set the correct input device, see A 'select input device' (if your using JACK switch it ALSA to select device, then back to JACK)
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=55581

B) turn the capture level up, see D 'capture level up'. Don't confuse Capture with Mic. Mic sets the volume of Mic 'thru' but no the record level.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=55582

C) If frugally installed set temporary directory outside of SaveFile . Go to edit > preferences > directories set to something like /mnt/home/audacity-temp

D) Select view > 'show clipping' highlight any part of the recording that has distorted due to input being too high.

E) if recording multiple tracks you may need to lower latency http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=58094 - otherwise new track may come in too soon.

F) you can use Jack to monitor if your system is recording continuously without gaps (due to not enough processor time allocated, or not fast enough processor).

==Filetype and MIME Scripts==
the package includes .desktop for menu entry and script for mime *.aup and right-click association for some audio types. more info at
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=644747


==Known Issues==
Menu bar goes tiny when Okaying out of Edit / Preferences
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=646665#646665

--Work around - resize window, or use keyboard shortcuts (alt+F opens menu on File and arrows keys choose menu)

It works with latest exprimo by Pemasu.

I was able to get it to work with Porteus linux by adding
a couple of dependencies.

I got the sound to work on my machine(IBM desktop)
by setting the sound output to..

HDA Intel AD198x Analog (hw:0,0)

I wrote a crude script to extract the pet packages. Then it's
not very difficult to convert it into an XZM module since
modules and pet packages have the same folder structure.
Scripts that refer to '/root' I change to '$HOME'
gtkdialog3 ---> I change to gtkdialog

_______________________________________________

To save space in the Audacity pet package why don't you split
off the foreign locales into their own pet package.
That is what I did when I made two Audacity XZM modules.
It saved several megs.

While using Audacity in Exprimo I found a small bug.
After I open then close Audacity preferences window
the Audacity upper menu is blank except for part of the 'File'
menu heading. I have to close the window to regain the menu
headings.

I discovered that I can make the top menu reappear by
simply resizing the Audacity window using any convenient method.

I'm going to test the problem in Slacko. What window manager are you using on Exprimo?

JWM


The problem also occured in Porteus on the same machine
and they use XFCE.

Maybe the problem is with the intel graphics chip in my machine??

I can confirm the tiny menu bar error in Slacko 5.3.1 with JWM. Its because of the updated version of wxwidget (2.8.12) having a bug.

http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Release_Notes_2.0.1#Interface_2

Quote:
(Linux) On Linux systems using wxGTK 2.8.12 without Unity, closing Preferences will lead to loss of the Audacity Menu Bar (only "Fi" from "Files" will be visible). On Ubuntu using the Unity shell, a small black square will appear, but the Audacity menu in the Global Menu is unaffected. Workaround: Resize (or maximize/unmaximize) the Audacity window after closing Preferences. Solution: This is a wxGTK bug, as reported here (http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/13280) and fixed in changeset 67929 (http://trac.wxwidgets.org/changeset/67929). To resolve this problem, wxGTK 2.8.12 needs to be patched on the target system, ideally by updating the distribution package. This fix will be included in wxGTK 2.8.13


no sign of 2.8.13, so I will attempt to patch when I get around to it. This could effect other wxwidget programs see http://puppylinux.org/wikka/SoftwareDetails

---

Ive also been thinking about the un/install scripts. Would they work correctly if someone wasnt. Does anyone use Puppy not as root anyway?
