PostPosted: Thu 09 Nov 2017, 10:56    Post subject:  Pulse Audio Volume Control
Subject description: Capturing audio with Audacity
 

I have Audacity installed on both Windows 10 and Linux and the Windows versions have always been good at capture (whether or not analog or digital it does the trick).

On Linux, it's not working. But if I install Pulse Audio Volume Control, I could do it.

Just curious if anyone has Fatdogged this or debianed it close enough to Fatdog so I don't have to download the source and rebuild.

If not, I will just download the source and build it or do something like installing a binary and crossing my fingers.

I've now downloaded the source from Github and I notice that I had already done it once before - I just don't remember whether I built it.

Requirements

Currently, pavucontrol is tested on Linux only.

pavucontrol was developed and tested on Debian GNU/Linux
"testing" from April 2006, it should work on most other Linux
distributions (and maybe Unix versions) since it uses GNU autoconf for
source code configuration.

pavucontrol requires gtkmm and glademmm installed.

Obviously pavucontrol requires an installation of PulseAudio.
I've now downloaded PulseAudio source - guess I just need gtkmm and glademmm

PostPosted: Thu 09 Nov 2017, 11:38    Post subject: I haven't yet gotten ./configure to run
Subject description: There is a .pc file that the script cannot find
 

I need to somehow find that .pc file (gtk+-3.0.pc) and then edit my PKG_CONFIG/PKG_CONFIG_PATH somehow.

I didn't realize that this was so complicated to build on my machine. It would probably be easier on my Redhat. I can then glance over at my Redhat's installation when it's done.

For now, I need to figure out where the .pc file is (if I have it).

I decided to go back to version 3.21.6 due to my not having a C++ 14 compiler (I have only up to about 11).

The output below is an excerpt of the configure.log:

configure:17239: result: /usr/bin/pkg-config
configure:17264: checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0
configure:17267: result: yes
configure:17277: checking for GTK
configure:17284: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "gtk+-3.0"
Package gtk+-3.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-3.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-3.0' found
configure:17287: $? = 1
configure:17301: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "gtk+-3.0"
Package gtk+-3.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-3.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-3.0' found
configure:17304: $? = 1
configure:17318: result: no
No package 'gtk+-3.0' found
configure:17334: error: Package requirements (gtk+-3.0) were not met:

No package 'gtk+-3.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Subject description: The above file is all I have in my /usr/lib64/pkg-config
 

This explains it - I need to have a later version of the .pc file mentioned above - ie. the +-.pc for 3.0.

I'll have to find that somewhere - or better yet, there is something I need to install (perhaps some sort of libdevel - I can't find that stuff on the website I used to download the source. No idea why it's not in the tar or why it doesn't SEEM to be in the tar I downloaded.

At least I have an explanation for the script's failure. Possibly, I DO have the 3.0 on my hard-drive somewhere and just need to supplement the search path.

Subject description: I need GTK+ installed as it's listed in the Requirements
 

So I need to hope I pick the right version and just install IT FIRST.

Perhaps this Gnome link will help?

PostPosted: Thu 09 Nov 2017, 12:04    Post subject: I now have a source directory for gtk+-3.0, a version
Subject description: But there are loads more dependencies
 

So for today, I'll have to just use Windows to do the music I wanted to do. I was hoping I could do it on Linux but it will take more time to get all the stuff installed. I need to check how much room I have anyway.

Prerequisites
=============

GTK+ requires the following packages:

- The GLib, Pango, GdkPixbuf, ATK and cairo libraries, available at
the same location as GTK+. GTK+ 3.0.12 requires at least
GLib 2.28.0, Pango 1.24.0,
GdkPixbuf 2.22.0, ATK 1.30
and cairo 1.10.0.

- gobject-introspection 0.10.1 or newer.

Perhaps today I'll try to install some more stuff.

Subject description: From this link: https://www.gtk.org/download/linux.php
 

So maybe in a day I'll install it all - I had Internet troubles today and other work.

Hopefully, Pulse audio volume will be up and running soon.
