Hi,

I am fairly new to Puppy, and I would like to set up an older PC as a music player.

To that end I have downloaded the XMMS .pup and got it running properly. I would like to add the 'goom' visualisation to it, but have very little idea on how to do that.

I searched the web for goom stuff, and most sites provide installs for Ubuntu and Debian, but I could find none for Puppy. For testing, I tried Knoppix which has XMMS with the goom visualisation 'built in', and it works fine (bit slow though - old PC).

Should I simply copy the "visualisation folder" (if there is one)? Will that contain everything needed for Puppy, or is there other "system" stuff needed as well?

Cheers,
MM

A self installer can be found here

It will complain about needing libSDL-1.2.so.0 which I do not have.

Code:
sh-3.00# ./xmms_goom-2k4-0-installer-x86.sh
./xmms_goom-2k4-0-installer-x86.sh: line 6: xmms-config: command not found
Archive self extracted.
Files installed.

Goom installation for XMMS is now complete !\n(re)start xmms to use it.
sh-3.00# xmms
libmikmod.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
goom2: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

OK, downloaded "xmms_goom-2k4-0-installer-x86.sh" and tried to execute from command line. However I got the error...

line 6: xmms-config: command not found
impossible to find where to install goom..
try to find it by yourself.

Now, after installing the xmms.pup (xmms runs fine), I can not find a "xmms-config" file on my system, which the "xmms_goom-2k4-0-installer-x86.sh" file wants (I looked inside it with a text editor).

Not knowing about any of the stuff in this .sh file, I am stuck at this juncture. Should I edit this file, and if so, what should I be looking for?

Thanks,
MM

PS. Should I try to find the library file you mention, or will goom run without it?

Here is my install:
Code:
sh-3.00# ./xmms_goom-2k4-0-installer-x86.sh
./xmms_goom-2k4-0-installer-x86.sh: line 6: xmms-config: command not found
Archive self extracted.
Files installed.

Goom installation for XMMS is now complete !\n(re)start xmms to use it.
sh-3.00#


Goom is listed in my xmms "visualization plugin" options.

It also installs "goom2" to /usr/local/bin

I still have not installed (or looked for) the libSDL... that is required so it will not run for me.

Code:
sh-3.00# goom2
goom2: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
sh-3.00#


So it seems it will run without the xmms-config.(?)
which by the way, according to google, requires the installation of the xmms-devel package.

I believe it's only looking for the Visualization folder.

Mine is /usr/local/lib/xmms/Visualization.

Make sure the .sh file points to the path of yours.

Good luck

EDIT:
OK, I couldn't stand it any longer. I installed the libSDL...from here.

I had to symlink /usr/local/lib/libgoom2.so.0 to /usr/lib as it complained it couldn't find it.

But now, here it is. And btw, it's pretty cool!!
