Several reasons not to use pause:

You want to shut down your pc.
You don't want to start in the middle of a song when you come back.
You just hit stop when a song stops because you don't feel like listening to music anymore (and the next song is at 1 second or so).

Maybe it would be nice to have an option when to count a song as skipped.
When you stop the music (and it's under the time and percentage you set as counting for skipping) the skip count of the song you were listening to is increased. So that means that when I go away, it's possible that I skip the song I was listening to when I didn't want to. Could you make it so that the skip count only increases on actually skipping the song (i.e. clicking next)?

This matters to me because my weighted random more or less excludes song I skipped.
Ah, got it. Thanks  ;)
Awesome!  :D

But I can't seem to find the menu in the context window...

Yes, exactly that. Thanks. I wonder how I've missed that ;)
Questions / Search box

Is it possible to set the default of the search box to "Anything contains"? Now if I want to search for an (album) artist I have to change the filter or search in the artist list directly. It would be much easier if you could just search in every tag for a match, and then if you still want only the artist, you can always click on a track and then filter on artist.


If I set Artist contains Gorillaz, I get 1 song (not from Gorillaz. I don't think it exists but whatever)
If I set Album contains Gorillaz, I get 1 album
If I set Artist contains Gorillaz, I get all their songs
If I set Anything contains Gorillaz, I get all their songs plus the one song that's not theirs

This saves a lot of time switching between all the different settings. Especially since you also have to set the subsettings every time.

Can't you do one for gnome and the other for xfce? Like ifdef gnome then use this, and for everything else the other?

Yep, fixed. Also, the Cairo perl module was already installed for me. Great work again! ;)
And a fix (I think)

The dir has to be created too

I just sudo make install the git repository like I've always been doing. It worked for two releases I think, but this time I actually had to do something to get everything to work. I know what apt-get build-dep does, but it used to work before...

And I already guessed the tray icon was not your fault, but I thought you might wanted to know what was going on. Same with the menus. It's something with really low priority (something like automatic album cover detection is more important), but now someone who runs into the same problems can find them in this post ;)

For now I guess I'll just fix my home-made theme.
Questions / gmusicbrowser on Ubuntu 10.04

When I run gmusicbrowser on Lucid, it doesn't find gstreamer. For the moment I'm using mplayer, but gstreamer always worked fine for me, so I was wondering why it doesn't show up. Maybe I missed some packages?

Oh, and the menu bar (in some themes) looks really shitty with the new Lucid theme. Is there a way to fix that? I don't like the new theme how it is now (because the migration sucks), so it's not your fault.

Those were the first two things I noticed while running gmb (git) in Lucid.

Edit: Found another one. You can't enable the tray icon.

Edit2: Got it. It apparently doesn't install any of the packages here when you do sudo apt-get build-dep gmusicbrowser...

Edit3: Installing those packages fixed the issues with gstreamer and the tray icon. But now the tray icon appears to have a gray background instead of a blackish one. This has been reported at The problem is that it takes the window background as the background for the icon, instead of the menu bar background.

And the gray vs blackish menu ugliness remains too ;)

Holy s**t, that was fast (both scanning and you fixing it ;)). Instead of it taking like a minute to scan, it now took less than a second. Once again: you're awesome :D

Edit: This was btw what I meant last time when I said it was really slow. I only just figured that it actually could be a bug :P

Nah, that was a long time ago when I just went linux all the way. I just ripped them again in ogg or something, because that seemed easy enough. So I didn't really report it.

And I figured that that was the problem when running it in debug mode. But it's happening every time my library is being scanned, which is every time I start gmb. Not only the first time. Maybe it's because of the wrong APE tags that it can't save the VBR headers?

I'm always using the latest git version, so that shouldn't be a problem. And I deleted all my ape files a while ago, because gmb thought they were like 237436943 hours long.

Anyways, I'll just send you the logs by email.

Fact is btw, that sometimes, it takes like 100 songs at a time, and sometimes one at a time. Looking at the progress bar and the text under it of course.
