Questions / Re: Ratings disappear by themselves
December 20, 2009, 22:21:15
I'll assume you are talking about version v1.0.x, tell me if you are not.
Thanks for reporting this, I'm no longer working on v1.0.x, and as the way songs data are handled in the new version (v1.0.x currently in alpha) has completely changed, it's unlikely the bug is still there (though there are lots of new ones to play with :) ).
So unless you can find what action causes this to happen (I doubt it's time, as there is nothing distinguishing an old rating from a new one), I won't be investigating it, sorry.
It's mostly done in the v1.1.x branch, the only thing lacking is the gui to activate it (sorry it's taking so long :-[).

In the meantime, if you want to test it, you can use the v1.1.x branch (latest git version is better), and remove the line "_disabled=>1," following the line "composer =>" in
You can then add a composer column by right-clicking on the column headers, and add a composer tab in by right clicking on other tabs. You can use the composer value in some places (where you can use %a for artist ...) by using $composer.
Of course re-reading the song tags is needed to pick-up existing composer tags in your collection.
Questions / Re: Strange Text Behavior
December 14, 2009, 16:16:42
Yes, thanks for reporting this, someone else reported it a couple of days ago. It took me a while to reproduce it in some cases, it seems to happen much more in some system configuration, I don't know which ones. I found that for some reason, using strange utf8 characters, like "????" makes it happen much more reliably.
It is a bug revealed by the new gtk versions that use client-side windows.

It can be worked around by setting the environment variable GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS to 1 before running gmusicbrowser :
GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1 gmusicbrowser
you can also set it by adding the line :
at the top of /usr/bin/gmusicbrowser, before "use Gtk2".

I've just fixed it in git (in both v1.0.x and master) by simplifying the code used to draw these labels. I actually don't know why I made it so complicated in the first place, I guess I know gtk better now. By the way, it happens with Title/Artist/Album because I make them scrollable in case the text is too long.

Pour l'instant les images pour les artistes ne sont jamais choisies automatiquement :(
J'ajouterai cette fonctionnalité dans une future version (en même temps que la ré-écriture du système de choix automatique de pochette d'album).

S'il s'agit simplement d'un changement du dossier de base, le mieux est probablement d'utiliser cette commande pour remplacer le vieux chemin par le nouveau :
perl -pi -e "s#/old/path/#/new/path/#g" ~/.config/gmusicbrowser/tags
En remplacant "/old/path/" et "/new/path/", bien sûr tout les chemins "/old/path/" trouvés seront remplacés.
Questions / Re: Strange notiy-box in ubuntu karmic
December 09, 2009, 20:33:28
Ubuntu's default notify daemon does not support action buttons in its notifying bubble. It seems they have decided to display a dialog  ??? instead when the application request action buttons.
You just need to disable the "Display stop/next actions" option in the notify plugin. It is also possible to replace the ubuntu's notify daemon by the other one (can't remember their names).
Questions / Re: gmb 1.1.3. album picture issue.
December 08, 2009, 19:14:01
Yes, sorry, in the v1.1.x branch, the auto-selection of album picture is not yet implemented. But you can still select pictures manually (right-click on album name). Also, if you migrate from v1.0.x to v1.1.x (if the tags file exist, but not the gmbrc file) the album pictures selection will be preserved.

The lack of this feature is one of the main reasons the v1.1.x branch is still in alpha and not in beta. It will probably be implemented in v1.1.5 (I will release a v1.1.4 soon)

4) Not saving playlists.
It works for me, did you check the "remember filter" option in the "Misc." tab ?
The autofill mode is not saved because I never thought about saving it, but I will fix it so that it is saved if the "remember filter" option is on. Or maybe I should add a "remember queue" option ?
Suggestions / Re: 'Various artists' mode
December 05, 2009, 15:37:06
I think setting the album_artist tag (only possible in v1.1.x) to the album name will do just that.
By the way, I still need to use a default album_artist name when the compilation flag is on, maybe I could add an option to use the album name instead of "Various artists" or "Compilation".

Note that you can remove the artist tab and add instead a album_artist tab (with the small problem of a longer tab name  :(, suggestions welcome) by right clicking on the tabs.

About sorting songs by album_artist, I've just noticed that currently you can only sort using the "raw" album_artist, that is empty when no album_artist is defined. I'll add the "virtual" album_artist that is equal to the artist when no album_artist is defined. Suggestions for names to differentiate between the "raw" and "virtual" album_artist would be appreciated.
Suggestions / Re: Artists sorting

It's planned (can't say when) as an option, at least by using the "Artist Sort Order" tag, and maybe also by using a user defined expression.
Questions / Re: Some other issues with gmb1.1
November 29, 2009, 11:00:08
1) there was a bug that caused saving problems with layouts that have ":" in their name. I fixed it some time ago in git, I should have released a 1.1.4 sooner, I'll do it soon, maybe later today.

2) and 3) yes, that happen when the gapless option is on. The gapless option use a new feature of gstreamer "playbin2" that replace "playbin", which cause these crashes. I still don't know if the crashes come from my code, from gstreamer or from the perl bindings for gstreamer.

4) I'll take a look at this, I'll reply later.

It's planned, I want to make it possible to submit to both at the same time.
In the meantime, you can just replace "" by "" in the file plugins/

Merci pour la rapidité de la réponse, malheureusement la soluce en dessous ne semble pas marcher.
As-tu refait un scan après ?

j'ai tenté de faire le bourrin en desinstallant gmusic (j'ai essayé d'effacer tous les fichiers de config) pour le réinstaller.
Mais je ne comprend pas: il sait toujours ou est mon dossier musique...donc je vois pas ou est le fichier qui contient l'info du chemin de mon répertoire musique.
Tout est sauvé dans ~/.config/gmusicbrowser/tags (gmbrc pour la branche 1.1.x).

Sinon, je viens de remarquer que le forum est affiché en anglais par défaut, même si le navigateur est configuré pour le français. Je vais voir si je peux arranger ça. Sinon, il est possible de changer la langue dans son profil.
Questions / Re: Layout issue in recent snapshots
November 28, 2009, 12:22:22
Quote from: shayguitarra on November 28, 2009, 11:23:37
With the most recent snapshots the columns disappear in the right panel so it is impossible to insert new columns, sort tracks etc.
Thanks, I failed to notice it, but I mistakenly changed something that removed the headers on SongTrees. I've just fixed it in git.

Quote from: shayguitarra on November 28, 2009, 11:23:37
Also this only happens in the Browser tab. Playlist and Queue are both fine.
Yes, that's because they use SongList widgets and not SongTree.

Quote from: shayguitarra on November 28, 2009, 11:23:37
Running gmb through terminal I get the following error:layout error: EditListButtons already has a parent -> can't put it in VBTab1

Yes, this has nothing to with it. It's just that one of the 2 EditListButtons should renamed to EditListButtons2 else only 1 will appear. I'll fix the layout on the site.

Questions / Re: Shuffle in last git

IIRC there was a new item in the play order list when this happened though. Something like "follow list". When set to that option, I couldn't switch to any of the other play orders, and the list as shown in the playlist window was sorted on "Album, Disk, Track", not random or anything alike. Maybe that's of any use? Or maybe you could tell me how to get that new item in the play order list. That could help me to reproduce the problem.
That must have been the "list order" (the tooltip says "no order", I should fix that) that you get when playing a static list. But I can't reproduce your problem.
Questions / Re: Shuffle in last git

No it's not a known bug, and I can't think of what might cause this. Can you run in it from a terminal, and check if any error message appear when you try to change play order ?

Quote from: Sven on November 25, 2009, 17:18:19
Seems to be happening only if I keep the same playlist. ie double clicking on an artist fixes it.
What playlist was that ? everything, filter, static playlist ? and does the problem re-appear when you go back to this playlist ?
