Since Spotify added playlist-groups the other day, I found best to supports this as well Smile
In pMusic the corresponding feature is called Favorite groups

This post will be used to post extra stuff/info about the 4. generation of pMusic
Main post in this thread is linked here - Release notes.


4.0.x Highlights
  • The new Favorites-module replaces bookmarks, multiple playlists and overview.
  • Right-click menus has given a simplified workflow/gui with enhanced features (like playlist/file management).
  • Sourcelist now supports multiple selection. In combination with right-click options this makes management much more powerful.
  • The handling of the dynamic DB is now so good that searching is preferred over browsing.
  • Tighter integration of RadioHits Grabber and TopHits plugin.
  • All graphics/themes are now svg.
  • The rating module is extended to also use graphics, but still lighting fast.
  • Complete changelog here.



4.0.x Notes
  • Version upgrade from version 3.x.x is ok, but not from 2.x.x. For a fresh install, please remove /root/.pmusic/
  • pMusic 4 does NOT use UTF-8 when internally working with the db (grep). If anyone meets issues regarding this, I really want to hear. There is a global variable to change this in line 15 in /usr/local/pmusic/pmusic.
  • Some features didn't make it into this release, but things are not stopping here...
  • This release require an updated gtkdialog - attached.
  • Note to Precise/Racy/Lucid users; You might think that the builtin ffmpeg-0.8 is too old since pMusic 3/4 requires 0.11. BUT, most will work ok with ffmpeg-0.8. pMusic take advantage of new features in 0.11 (ie. embedding of albumart into audio-files), but core functions are untouched.

Hello Sigmund,

Been doing a bit of quick testing of pMusic 4.0.0
Looks good in Slacko (except for missing tray app icon - see below).

In Precise (and other Puppies with earlier JWM) the menu icon is missing because of not supporting .svg icons I think. Maybe you need to include a .png icon somewhere to cover this. Files and streams are playing with the libav-0.8.x (ffmpeg substitute).

Not sure if you are intending to support Wary/Racy with pMusic 4.0.0 but I compiled gtkdialog r514 in Racy and installed pMusic. The Hoovers music plays but there is no GUI. Console shows a segmentation fault

Code:
# pmusic
grep: /root/.pmusic/pmusicrc: No such file or directory
/usr/local/pmusic/pmusic: line 46: [: : integer expression expected
cat: /root/.pmusic/index_mymusic: No such file or directory
gtk-update-icon-cache: Cache file created successfully.
cat: /root/.pmusic/tmp/sourcelist: No such file or directory
/usr/local/pmusic/pmusic: line 465: 28528 Segmentation fault      $GTKDIALOG -f $WORKDIR/xml_pmusic${XML_SUFFIX} -G +"$X"+"$Y" 2>$STDERR
#


By the way, sorry if this has been covered before, but what are we supposed to do with the 2 symlinks named gtkdialog and the files gtkdialog3 and gtkdialog4 in /usr/sbin and /usr/bin? Is the arrangement in Slacko with everything in /usr/sbin the best way?

Edit:- In Slacko the tray app is missing the icon for Pause / Play

4.0.0 Release Notes

OscarTalks
Thank you for looking at pMusic!

Missing icon in Precise
Yeah, the version of JWM in Precise is rather old, and does not support svg. Hmmm, what am I gonna do about it? Do we actually support pMusic 4 on Precise, Wary, Lucid and Racy? Hmm... I let it go for now - it is no showstopper.

Sigmund

I have to admit, I became a bit surprised when I look into Precise and saw 2 executables of gtkdialog. Only 1 of them will work - and that is /usr/bin/gtkdialog. Simply because /usr/bin is set before /usr/sbin in the $PATH environmental variable.

In my gtkdialog pet for Presice I replace /usr/bin/gtkdialog. pMusic 4 ONLY searches for 'gtkdialog' - not gtkdialog3 or gtkdialog4. I see no reason for keeping 3 versions of gtkdialog in one iso as gtkdialog is nearly 100% backwards compatible. There were some issues a year ago, but I have not seen any problems lately.

4.0.0 Release Notes

Missing icon in trayapp is noted. I wonder if the trayapp supports svg? (Does it Mick?) Maybe we need a png anyway...
For those wondering , - The trayapp is NOT a part of pMusic 4. It is an external plugin, and can be installed via the 'File' menu.

My PC won't run Wary/Racy, so I am not able to test this. But I suppose that Wary has an old ffmpeg and not streamripper. so more deps must be in place to get the best out of pMusic 4. Maybe it is time to focus on Precise instead? ... later ... Actually, it seems ok to use ffmpeg 0.8 as requirement because trying to add a embedded albumart just fails - no harm. On the bad side, there is no way to test if the installed ffmpeg supports embedded albumart as there is no specific attribute to do so. A version check could be done. But to be honest, there is a versioning-hell with version-numbers, nightly-builds and also unique libav numbering.
