To use the file Browser you need to right click on the gui main screen, a purple screen will show with replace screen with, just select the plugin you want to use. Just used the file Browser and works fine.

also here's that other plugin you wanted, It didn't work for you before because you didn't have fftw, I compiled fftw statically and then compiled the plugin to reduce the over size by a lot, The plugin does work you just need to get to that purple screen to enable it.

make sure you have "View/Design mode" ticked in the window. Or you won't get the purple screen.

Hi, again...

MANY thanks for organizing the updates - they work a treat..

*except*

...that the 'File Browser' item doesnt appear in either the 'purple screen' in 'Design Mode' nor in the Edit > Preferences > PLugins dialog.

I tried a few different locations.. and re-downloading the .pet... but I can't see the file browser anywhere.

Any clues?

Thanks a heap.

Make sure its 100% shut down, no DB icon in the taskbar Smile then
Delete /root/.config/deadbeef and /root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel and see if that works.
The location the File Browser plugin pet package is perfect for main DB package I made, no need to move it.

No joy. Dang.

I tried rebooting completely after removing the files you described.. Tried another 'clean' save file with the DeaDBeef .pets all installed ... and still no sign of the 'File Browser' on 'right-click' in 'Design Mode' nor in the PLugins...

*mumble, grumble* ... Puppy is being a tenacious lil' pup.. *grrrr*.. holding back the File Browser somehow.. hmm...

here try my config files, it has the file browser included in the config, so you still need the file browser plugin pet installed then add this one. Since its just the config files.

Using your config and dspconfig files hasn't helped.

BTW, the recent .pet for the config file unpacks into the '/' path instead of '/root'... but no nevermind; I simply put the config and dspconfig files into the right places.

As this is getting weird, I'm thinking about the actual files and how they're built/located. For example, the 'Musical Spectrum' plugin has no troubles at all. It's in the 'right-click-Replace' AND in the 'PLugins' and is usable and configurable in both places, so that file is Ok.

So, I'm wondering if there's a path missing in a make file or something (this, from someone who's never built a big project under Linux(!))... or if there's a special location that the 'File Browser' plugin has to be stored in at compile time. Maybe it's even as weird as being dependent on the file system we're each using (I'm using ext2 on this save file)...?

Whether it's relevant or not, here's a couple of md5 checksums on the files, so maybe you can see if they're the same on your system:-
Code:
2bbcec606aecef6a37a8e917961e7f2e  /usr/lib/deadbeef/ddb_misc_filebrowser_GTK2.so.0.0.0

2dcc1d456bc2066637b94849b4951620  /usr/lib/deadbeef/ddb_vis_musical_spectrum_GTK2.so

...and the link is a 'soft' link, I think?.. so that shouldn't matter, I would think.

Remembering: I'm using Slacko 5.6.4 ...and it's a Frugal Install of Puppy.

I appreciate you helping to try and nut this out... Smile

lol I rushed that config pet, its now been fixed in the right location. Smile
Also the md5's of both files you posted match mine 100%.
I'm using slacko 5.9.3 So it has to be a configure somewhere, some place, Its also my last day working on this for 2-4 days, I'm going camping early tomorrow and its 11pm here in Sydney Australia Smile

cool man, when I get back I'll start over from scratch. I'm currently changing micko's slacko over to more user friendly for what I do and use it for. Things like deadbeef as main music player, gimp, and google chrome as default.

I downloaded Slacko 5.9.3 and burnt it to a CD-R... and the good(!) news is that the problem is still the same with a CD boot of 5.9.3 Sad

So, it would seem there's something with the installation/config/build of the contents of the .pets...

The only thing I can think of doing next is for you to try a similar, 'totally clean' boot from CD of 5.9.3... and use your same .pet files.. and see if it works for you. Then, I think we'd probably be able to say it's something with the build/code...

...but all this can wait until you're back (and recovered!!?) from your trip...

I'll keep at it......

Hi,

I'm the author of the musical spectrum plugin and just stumbled upon this thread, so maybe I can help you. Wink

To get a better idea of what's going wrong, can you paste the output of deadbeef when launching it from console?

Welcome to the Forum Smile

We'd certainly appreciate any insights you might be able to offer...

Heh.. such a sensible starting point that I didn't think of... Ooop!

See the attached .zip containing 3 log files:-

01-db-standard-pet.log - a CLI run straight after the deadbeef-0.6.2-i386.pet was installed.

02-db-post-mspectrum.log - a CLI run after the 'Musical Spectrum' plugin .pet was installed.

03-db-post-filebrowser.log - a CLI run after the 'File Browser' plugin .pet was installed.

Not sure how familiar you are with Puppy Linux, .pets, etc... but in short, the .pet file is a tar/gzip file that includes an 'installation' script (per se), as well as a checksum file... and there are utilities in Puppy that recognize the type and perform an 'installation'.

I've been trying to work out what gets installed. .and where.. by using the Puppy 'diff' utils on file listings of the entire file system.. but they seem to be a bit crazy at the moment (or, more likely, I'm a bit crazy) and I can't get much sense out of them... I guess I could look at the .pet files and just unpack 'em somewhere.. and see what the protections are.. and the ownerships.. hmm...*boggle*

Anyway, maybe the logs will provide some clues a bit quicker...

...and thanks again for jumping in to help.

This looks just fine. DeaDBeeF found the the musical spectrum plugin and it was loaded correctly. Do you find it listed in Preferences -> Plugins and in the Design Mode?

In case you are not familiar with the design mode, it works as follows:

Enable it in View -> Design Mode, right click on a UI element (e.g. the playlist) and take a look in the 'Replace with...' menu. There should be an entry called 'Musical Spectrum'. If you click it the playlist will be replaced by it. You can use splitters (also found in Replace with...) to create more advanced layouts.

It seems the installation failed. DeaDBeeF hasn't found the plugin. In the log you can see where DeaDBeeF looks for plugins:

loading plugins from /root/.local/lib32/deadbeef
loading plugins from /root/.local/lib/deadbeef
loading plugins from /usr/lib/deadbeef

So I guess the ddb_misc_filebrowser_GTK2.so was placed somewhere else.

Ok, I took a look at the filebrowser pet file. The shared library is called ddb_misc_filebrowser_GTK2.so.0, but deadbeef only looks for files ending with .so. So I guess you just need to do the following (as root):

ln -s /usr/lib/deadbeef/ddb_misc_filebrowser_GTK2.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/deadbeef/ddb_misc_filebrowser_GTK2.so

Also the package maintainer should be notified about that.

Hope this helps. Smile
