PostPosted: Tue 10 Apr 2012, 14:57    Post subject: pmusic -s stop  

With the Enlightenment window manager it is hard to stop pmusic
when it is playing in the background. For instance in pemasu's
exprimo pmusic plays in a loop as default

I must use the command
Code:

pmusic -s stop


If pmusic can't be fixed then maybe pclock should have a
button to run this command.

Which version are you using?

From changelog Version 2.5.2 (25.Mar 2012)
- Playmode is set to no-loop by default (thanks to FeodorF)

Here is how I was able to make pclock compatible with Saluki



1) I checked if pmusic is installed and switched
to defaultaudioplayer if pmusic wasn't installed

2) I changed line 28 to
Code:
let "FONTSIZE=4100/$TMP"


(Does saluki have a different version of bash??)

3) To get the preference window to open I did the
following change in code. I took the following

Code:
<hbox>
      <text><label>Fontsize</label></text>
      <entry><variable>FONTSIZE</variable><default>'$FONTSIZE'</default></entry>
     </hbox>


and changed it to

Code:
     <hbox>
      <text><label>Fontsize</label></text>
      <entry><variable>FONTSIZE</variable><default>40</default></entry>
     </hbox>


FONTSIZE doesn't work but at least the app can be used.

I was using an older version of pmusic in exprimo which was just before
you changed it not to loop in version 251 I believe.

The new version will sole the problem I hope. I'll try.

Cool

line 106 seemed to be trouble, I had no $WORKDIR/end_while_fullscreen and no pretty clock, so removed ! (not) and it worked! But of course that broke everything! So I put it back and it was all good, so something is not generated at first start Wink

Have you checked that pclock fits in 480 pixel height screen?
It's over 500 dots when I checked.

If you're looking to develop pclock into a more useful app....

What about a database of the world cities. The user chooses a city
and clicks to find weather or news (according to button label)

Instead of doing it in realtime which could overload computer,
I would suggest having a database array . Each city could have a
maximum of 4 input values associated with it.

1) For News ----> English language website
2) For News ----> Foreign language website
3) For Weather ----> English language website
4) For Weather ----> Foreign language website

It wouldn't be too hard to maintain such a database.
For instance New York city has two big all news radio stations
http://www.wabcradio.com/
http://newyork.cbslocal.com/


I could supply you with North American websites (mainly local radio
stations specialising in news). The user could make his own changes
to the database and send the database back to you to look at.
Here's a mock-up.

My intentions with pClock is to offer some basic time-tools.
... and when new ideas stokes my mind, I use them wherever I find it reasonable.

L18L has made a gettext version, and I have uploaded as version 0.4. I don't anything about gettext, but now it might be a perfect opportunity for me to have a look how it works....


Thanks to L18L
Sigmund
