Suggestions / Request for VU meters and Spectrum Analyzer
« on: July 07, 2016, 19:52:38 »
To my surprise, after going through all the suggestions here, I found no one has asked for proper vu meters as found in the now defunct Guayadeque player, nor a decent and properly labeled spectrum analyzer with a db scale and scalable octave frequency notations (as can be found in Foobar 2000).

Questions / Problem upgrading to GMB 1.1.9 over 1.1.8 (RESOLVED)
« on: February 05, 2012, 08:16:28 »

When attempting to install RC 1.1.9 over  RC 1.1.8 in Ubuntu 11.10 64bit, I get an error that it will break the existing installation of GMB. I've attached a screenshot of the error.

Is it safe to attempt the upgrade or will it destroy 1.1.8 and all of the current settings I have?


Questions / Questions about: Desktop Widget - Button, Songs & Cover
« on: December 31, 2011, 23:22:15 »
Gmusicbrowser 1.1.8 RC. Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit (Gnome Shell & Unity)

Question 1: when changing the default text font size, the entire widget gets proportionately larger or smaller (including the cover art), but the number of characters in the Title, Artist & Album fields does not increase or decrease. The number of characters remains constant regardless of the font size chosen. For example, I would expect that reducing the font size from say Sans 13 to Sans 10 would result in more characters fitting on each line, but that's not the case. Is there a reason for the behavior?

Question 2: Is there a way to keep the cover size from changing when altering the default text font size?

Question 3: What is the purpose of the "Minimum Size" option which is set at 1 x 1. It seems to increment in steps of 10: 1,11, 21, 31, 41, but nothing changes in the desktop widget?

Thanks. Happy New Year.

(1) I just finished a new, clean installation of Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit, and installed gmusicbrowser 1.1.7 from the repositories. In "settings" I checked "Desktop Widgets" and added the "Buttons, Song & Cover" widget. Using the slider bars I moved it to the lower right area of my screen and closed the widget adjustments window. I then realized I needed to move the widget a little lower, but I can't nor can I get back to the slider adjustment window. The documentation page and wiki don't provide any help. Going back to "Settings > Desktop Widgets" only allows me to ADD another widget, there is no button to ADJUST the widget I already have on the screen. If I uncheck "Desktop Widgets" the widget disappears, but it's not really gone, since adding the check back to "Desktop Widgets" just returns the widget to where it was. Right clicking on the widget itself brings up no editing menu to adjust the position or allow me to move it around by holding down the right mouse button. I can add another widget of the same kind, but I can't move or delete the existing widget. Also, left clicking on the white triangle in the lower right corner of the widget and trying to move it just blows the entire widget up to 1/3 the entire right side of the screen (top to bottom) and the only way to fix it is to disable and re-enable the "Desktop Widgets" button. What am I missing?

(2) I can't install the 1.1.8 deb release candidate file I downloaded from the development section. I get an error stating that attempting to install 1.1.8 over 1.1.7 will break the existing package.  Is this a bug? Can 1.1.8 be installed over 1.1.7 in 64 bit 11.10?

(3) When I set gmusicbrowser to "ALSA" and "hw:0,1" in advanced settings, I get a gstreamer error on track changes between albums (mostly) involving 24/96 FLAC files. Playback stops and when I hit play it resumes. I need this setting to by-pass the pulse audio and themixer in order to get bit perfect output to my external DAC. This gstreamer issue didn't happen when I was using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with the same setting. Any ideas why this could be happening?

I've attached a screenshot of the error message that pops up.
