Pemasu, when you put Raring (and Precise) on a newer kernel, would you please include a much
later version of gnome mplayer than 1.03? 1.03 sometimes fails to sync video and sound.

I tried at least a couple of ways of updating mplayer but failed. So I wound up installing VLC on
both Raring and Precise. But VLC is a monster that I don't need.

Artsown.
Gnome-Mplayer 1.0.8 from Ubuntu Raring packages:

gnome-mplayer_1.0.8-1
libgmlib1_1.0.8-1
libgmtk1_1.0.8-1
libgmtk1-data_1.0.8-1
libimobiledevice3_1.1.4
libgpod4_0.8.2
libmusicbrainz3-6_3.0.2-2.1
libgda-5.0-4_5.0.3
libpulse-mainloop-glib0_3.0
libplist1_1.8-2
libneon27-gnutls_0.29.6-3
libdiscid0_0.2.2
libusbmuxd2_1.0.8

Install those and test. Report if it is usable.
Surely my own compile would be much more minimalistic. I would try to drop pulse dependency out, apple device out, try to compile it as gtk2 app ...and so on.

About Shotwell, which the above url link means.
I think the Shotwell starts ok, imports pics, shows them, but publishing the pics to the web sites would need a lot more gnome stuff.

gnome mplayer 1.03 sometimes fails to sync video and sound


When I drag an mp4 video file(a big file 200mb) on the mplayer window it
doesn't play sometimes or it delays a couple of seconds before playing.

But I do the drag again and I can get it to play,
but it didn't sync the sound with video. non-syncing is a serious problem.

Here's the Youtube video that I was watching. I downloaded
it as a 207 mb mp4 file and dragged it on the mplayer window.

Pemasu, I got a working gnome-mplayer 1.08 via your instruction on
raring. Thanks much. I first used "remove built-in packages" to get
rid of 1.03 (don't know if that step was necessary or not). I tediously
installed the libs one by one (there has to be a better way Smile) But
when finished downloading them I could simply click on a video
and it plays ... so a symlink was established ok.

Thanks again.

I use alien2puppy

I explain how to use it in my tutorial to make audacity.

It needs devx file loaded to do stripping.

Just put debs in a folder, and run script. Change .desktop file so
it resembles the old one by pemasu. Then make pet package
with dir2pet command

Code:
dir2pet gnome-mplayer-1.08

If you're having trouble then use 'nox' option at bootup,
which stands for 'no Xwindows'

Then launch 'xorgwizard-cli' and try 'xvesa' driver

omg it takes forever to package a pet now

/usr/bin/new2dir has a function called fixfilelistfunc

always called as
fixfilelistfunc "$ONEFILE"

it can be sped up significantly by replacing those with something along the lines of:
Code:
sed -i "/$ONEFILE/d" /tmp/${EXE_PKGNAME}.files

or changing that function to do the same rather than doing 2 consecutive reads and writes (really slow for large file lists in packages with a lot of resources)
Note: You may need to quote it differently, I haven't tested it yet, but wanted to post it before I forget.

Well you are dead right about new2dir being as slow as a wet week (try vlc Rolling Eyes ). I saw your suggestions in the other thread and cool as they are I reckon installwatch can be completely ditched in favour of shinobar's find "MILESTONE" method. It's simple and works. See his nvidia installer for more info.

Hi,
your distro is so cool Smile I'm using it as my only operating system. Very good indeed but only let me report some minor problems that i have or have had:
1. Saving the session using the "save" icon on the desktop takes a very long time to save the session, indeed I shut down to make sure it has saved the changes, but when shutting down it says the session has been already saved.
2. Trying to either do a frugal and full install failed, so I produced a folder in my HDD as the frugal folder for Raring and copied all the files from my flash drive (bootable into Raring) into that folder because furgal install couldn't do that. Then using Grub4Dos did the last part and the frugal instal this way worked fine.
3. There seems to be a problem with sound here. Opening a program that has a builtin sound playback gives the following warning when starts to run: "The audio playback device does not work. Falling back to default". Similarly, VirualBox gives the following warning when it starts and has no sound as a consequence: "No audio device could be opened. Selecting the NULL audio backend with the consequence that no sound is audible. Error ID: HostAudioNotResponding".

Meanwhile, is there a way to resize the icons on the desktop?

Thanks, best regard
