To Barry,

As before mentioned, pupradio gui STILL doesn't
launch.
Console shows this output;

# pupradio
/usr/local/pupradio/pupradio: line 117: /root/.pupradio/config: No such file or directory

Oh dear!

Regards.

Have had to use SD cards to run Easy since 0.4 on both my Dell Inspirons 1545 (2 and 3 gb respectively). That's been absolutely fine with both machines being pretty fast. Now since recent fix I can use usb sticks to run Buster 2.1.1 ! Magnificent - very many thanks.

Rodney, this should be created the first time you use it, it's not there beforehand. What is actually appearing please.

Firstly, in a console type in set and see where HOME is, check there for the .pupradio directory as pupradio seems to locate it there. Also check whats listed as WORKINGDIR (check if it's there while the error is appearing please).

Secondly, ?are you getting pupradio's gui appearing, ?are you getting xine (or whatever player is being used as it can be on eof a number) coming up or not. I'm not on that base at present so I can't check first hand, but I am working with an earlier version at present.

This may be a problem between the two as xine does use /root/.xine while pupradio uses HOME/.pupradio for configuration

Can I also sugest you have a look in /tmp/xerrs.log and see what's there as it may give you a hint.

OH, and .pupradio/config contains two lines
Code:
PLAYER=xine
with a empty line following if that helps

Note, 2.1 and 2.1.1 have Gnome-MPV and MPV, not xine.

I can't see gnome-mpv in pupradio. It's creating the /root/.pupradio directory when first used, but not the config file, so it can't be finding a suitable player for some reason (pupradio line 79+), ah! /usr/local/bin/defaultmediaplayer is set for gnomempvshell by default, and that's not in pupradio, change it to mpv via the application chooser and the config is created and pupradio is up and running, so it just seems that pupradio just needs an update. There's a few lines to add so i'll leave it to BarryK and not attempt it.

PostPosted: Fri 06 Sep 2019, 19:26    Post subject: defaults-changer  

By the way, i've noticed in /tmp/xerrs.log that the defaults-changer script is issuing an error each time it's run
Code:
/usr/local/bin/defaults-changer: line55: shift: shift count out of range
default (****) changed to (****)... Bye xxx

each time it's run, not sure why though.
EDIT: btw the (****) lines are appearing for each of the default applications so it's doing it a number of times, not once.

PostPosted: Sat 07 Sep 2019, 02:13    Post subject: rox-filer dissapearing ?bug?
Subject description: from the 2.1.1 img file
 

I'm getting the rox-filer dissapearing when changing windows without reason or message.

Something along the lines like>
I created a directory in the current window;
opened geany to create a file, saved file;
changed window to do something else in another window;
switched back to the first and geany is still there, but the rox-filer has dissapeared, it's not in a different window either, nore is there something in xerrs.log or any of the other log files either.

If it was once I would take it it's me, but it's repeating.

Only extra I have loaded is the devx too, so the system shouldn't be overloaded.

EDIT: It's only the rox-filer that's behaving like this for me and i've tried quite a few other apps

A facebook front end with security and other features built in.

Caprine is an unofficial and privacy-focused Facebook Messenger app with many useful features.

Might be worth considering as an addition, I don't think we have something like this yet.

Thanks gents for all your help, alfons and others.
I too was surprised that the config file was missing
from the .pupradio directory, so made one via geany
and inserted PLAYER=mpv

Now pupradio is working normally, free from those
annoying floating modules of xine.
Regards.

PostPosted: Sat 07 Sep 2019, 07:49    Post subject: playing videos failing  

thought i'd play a couple of my video dvd's and found a couple of problems.

1- right-click on the sr0 icon at the bottom if a dvd is loaded and it gives a menu including unmount sr0, however if you do try to unmount it, it opens the dvd player tray up correctly, but almost immediately closes it again and reinitializes sr0. It should leave the tray open until you touch/push the tray for it's auto-close mechanism to work.

2- and the big problem is that a dvd can be started, the music side comes out the speakers, but almost no audio voices (it's muffled to unlistenable).

3- you still have to use the Audacious Music players File>Settings to set things up, such as Audio for the overall volume amplification.

BTW, I'm reinstalling xine through the ppm to see if the audio problem is inherant or not. I think i'd still prefer it to the others.

EDIT: xine installed ok and can play dvd's with the music and audio both working, looks like there is something up with the others. Audio/music volume is correct too, with settings changeable from within the xine control pannel being acted on.

and an extra problem I found for you Sad

4- Gnome MPV is failing to start, nothing appears on the screen.

Trying to disconnect from the internet seems impossible, it just automatically reconnects again if your using ethernet and tell it to "Disconnect from Network" via the tray icon.

That should be enough for tonight, Smile

I'll do some further bug hunting tomorrow.

PostPosted: Sat 07 Sep 2019, 09:25    Post subject: Playing DVDs  

To scsijon,

after loading a dvd in sr0 to play, mine plays immediately,
picture and sound normally by default in mpv.

Perhaps it helps in Default Applications Chooser
to set Media Player at gnomempvshell then save.

Right-click on drive icon sr0 to eject & open the tray.

Regards.
