puppy300 / xfce / firefox w/ minion plugin for my puppy music server.

Anybody get the vumeters working on puppy4.+ ?
I can't seem to even get xmms to see the files.
Beep media player just crashes when selecting the option.


Fullsize

EDIT:
2/22/9 -
Error message from trying to start xmms and vu meters in puppy410. It does not show up in the visualization options.
Code:
07:43 AM ~ # xmms
/root/.xmms/Plugins/Visualization/libvumeter.so: undefined symbol: gdk_pixbuf_render_to_drawable

With renewed interest in the Puppy 2-series, via ttuuxxx's Puppy 214X
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42553
and Barry's 218 alpha
http://puppylinux.com/blog/?viewDetailed=00798

XMMS is once again a prime candidate as audio player of choice.
This XMMS dotpet package is known to work in 214X, and will most likely also work in 218.

Puppy 214X4 includes BMP as audio player, and it would be interesting to learn users' preferences between BMP and XMMS.

There are several XMMS packages contributed by different forum members, and quite a few input plugins and skins available as separate dotpets.
But there has been no consistency regarding where XMMS installs to in the filesystem, so it's difficult to mix-and-match the different components.

I have now packaged the most recent XMMS version with all of the useful input plugins included, so you won't need to chase around installing the plugins as a separate exercise.
And the installation location, /usr/local, is the same as Dougal's older XMMS-1.2.10 announced here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13056
so Dougal's collection of skins are compatible with this new package.
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Multimedia/xmms-1.2.10-by-Dougal/

Thanks to Raffy, the XMMS package, and separate locales package are available here
http://minipc.org/ipup/download/xmms-1.2.11.pet
http://minipc.org/ipup/download/xmms-1.2.11-locales.pet

Input plugins included:
MAD MPEG decoder (MP3)
libmpg123 (MP3)
MP4/AAC (faad)
Ogg Vorbis
WMA (WindowsMediaAudio)
FLAC
WAVE
CD audio

There are two MP3 plugins, because as well as the standard libmpg123 plugin, I provided the additional MAD plugin which is claimed to sound superior.
The libmpg123 plugin has been disabled in preferences.
There are even more input plugins available here
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Multimedia/xmms-1.2.10-by-Dougal/xmms-plugins/

The output plugin has been (correctly) configured for ALSA. This can be changed to OSS in the rare case where your audio device is supported only by an OSS driver (such as the SiS 7019 audio chip in the eBox thin client).

XMMS will not work in Puppy4.x because Puppy4.x does not have the older GTK1 libraries.
For Puppy4.x you should consider:
Audacious
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=20942
or BMP
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=20919


I would like to find the XMMS Cross Fader plug-in. I think I found it long ago for DSL, but what about Puppy? Thanks.

Thanks for locating that. But, I guess I don't know what Im doing because the crossfader doesn't appear in any of the XMMS plugin options. Neither does the VU meter plugin. PPM says both are installed. I rebooted the computer....both no show.

Any ideas??? Thanks.

I didn't "locate" it, I compiled and packaged it.

xmms-crossfade is an output plugin. In XMMS preferences, you will see it in the Output drop-down menu.
I configured XMMS to use ALSA as the default output. Change this setting to xmms-crossfade.

Thank you. I don't know what "compiling" is, but it sounds strenuous. I'm sure it's beyond my limited capability.

From past experience with XMMS I knew where to look for the plugin, but it's not where it ought to be. And the VU meter plugin doesn't appear under Visualizations.

I guess I have to track down the displaced thing-a-ma-jigs and move them to the correct pigeonhole.

Thanks for taking the time to compile.

The plugins under discussion in this thread are compatible (obviously) with the version of XMMS that I contributed. In the first post in this thread I specifically mentioned the installation location (/usr/local).

Since there seems to be some confusion about where the XMMS-crossfade and Analog VUmeter plugins are found, I now attach screenshots of the relevant sections of the XMMS Preferences menu.

It's not necessary to know how to compile, but if you're going to use Linux it behoves you to understand the concept. Google for an explanation.

That would be "files" and "directories". And yes, you could go through the somewhat complex process of shifting my plugins into different file locations to suit some other installation ... but why?

Just make sure you're using my version of XMMS, and everything will work. The screenshots I attach don't represent idealised speculation. They're from a working installation of XMMS.

Thank you very much. I'll try to determine which XMMS I have.

I found a site called "Linux From Scratch." Maybe I can learn something there. I wonder if I'll need a stack of punch cards...

Gracias.

Hello tempestuous,

Thank you for this package!
It also works in teenpup 2008!
-------------------------------------------

Here is a package of Xmms Vu meters. Just unzip with pupzip and drag them to /root/.xmms/VU_Meter_skins

/c and select configure in visualisations.
.xmms is a hidden file!

Try this skin!
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Vortigo+++(+3D%2BVU%2BBeryl%2BDock+)?content=55440

Regards
M.Gregg


Thank you! Just got them installed as you directed. I opened a terminal in my dl directory and used "tar xzvf xxxxx" and the skins unpacked into their own directory in which I selected all subdirectories and dragged them to another rox window open to /root/.xmms/VU_Meter_skins. Chose "Move" and off they went.

Voila! Cool.

Now my question is: Where are the cool matching XMMS Player skins available?

Thanks much!

hi friends. I'm on Puppy 4.31 (can't get the 5+ versions to display desktop), and I've got a problem.

I've installed xmms 1.2.11 from the pet provided in this thread. I've used it, and it works fine. I've also installed the xmms-scrobbler-0.4.0-libmusicbrainz-taglib and libidn.so.11 pets provided in this thread. But the scrobbler plugin does not show up under Options > Preferences > General Plugins.

I remember the scrobbler plugin working fine on XMMS in conjunction with a 4.00 install of Puppy.

Is there a way I can get the scrobbler plugin working under 4.31? I love that xmms uses minimal resources and would hate to have to switch.

Edit: wow, that was simple enough. Just a simple link to the plugins folder:

Code:
ln -s /usr/local/lib/xmms/General/libxmms_scrobbler.so /root/.xmms/Plugins/libxmms_scrobbler.so


I was almost certain the pet did this automatically.

Best lightweight music player ever!
