I'm interested in using this feature, but I'm curious to see some examples of this in action. How do you bind keys to system, shell and perl commands?

Questions / Re: Gmusic Not Launching
« Last post by Quentin Sculo on July 14, 2020, 23:21:21 »
Yes, it's because I still haven't made a new release, sorry about that. Either the package was uninstalled or it's just an old bug.
You need to use the git version, the last gtk2 version is in this branch https://github.com/squentin/gmusicbrowser/tree/v1.1.x or you can switch to the gtk3 beta version https://github.com/squentin/gmusicbrowser/ you just download a zip with the green button, unpack somewhere and run, as there is no compilation (if you don't care about translations).

Since upgrading to Linux Mint 20 Gmusicbrowser will not launch. No windows open. Is there a fix for this problem?

You may have a point about the mouse. I wasn't sure at first because I couldn't remember having the problems in other applications, then I remembered a few cases of links opening up twice so that's probably it. This also means I've had two bad mice in a row.

In any case your workaround works a treat, I can live with the error messages, so thanks again.

It really looks like you are double clicking with your mouse without wanting to, it happened to me with some mice.
You can replace the "queue" with for instance "nothing" like below, it will print an harmless error on the terminal as 'nothing" is not a known action, but it will do nothing.
But it seems the real problem is with your mouse.

Code: [Select]
     HPfp1 = FilterPane1(nb=2,hidebb=1,activate=nothing,page=artist,page_artist/lmarkup=1) \
  FilterPane2(nb=3,hidebb=1,activate=nothing,page=album,page_album/lpicsize=50,page_album/lmarkup=1)

Update: looks like I spoke a little too soon. It's now intermittently adding songs to the queue, which is less irritating but still not ideal. I'll try your suggested route of investigation and see if I can figure out any more clues.

That appears to have fixed it! Thankyou.

It wasn't happening every time I clicked on those two panels, it happened intermittently but often. Out of every ten artists or albums I clicked on it would autoplay maybe four or five but I couldn't figure out any pattern in the years (literally) this has been bugging me. I'm as sure as can be I wasn't double clicking, unless somehow it was reading a single click as a double? In any case I've been playing with it for half an hour now deliberately clicking on as many covers as possible and playback hasn't been interrupted a single time so it appears all but certain that changing the activate option has either fixed or worked round the problem.

Thanks again for your help and for a fantastic piece of software.

Customization / Re: Progress bar on the unity panel
« Last post by Vladymir on July 02, 2020, 00:40:34 »
this is my fault!  :o I corrected the link.

officially, unity is abandoned, but thanks to the unity team this package
is still in development (latest update was in April 2020)

compiz and its plugins were also rewritten a year ago and got back
all the functionality which they lost before.

there is no problem to change desktop environment to unity on the modern
versions of ubuntu, so I think all unity lovers (as me) can use it flawlessly.

as for library, there is nothing to do with appindicator which provides support
for tray icons, while I'm talking about the launcher icons (please look
at the image and at the corrected link in OP).

It's made through libunity API calls, and python wrapper is provided as well.

I can't reproduce the problem.
Does it happen every time you click on these 2 panels ?
One possibility is that you are double-clicking without wanting to. To check this you could change the activate option from the default "play" to "queue" :
Code: [Select]
     HPfp1 = FilterPane1(nb=2,hidebb=1,activate=queue,page=artist,page_artist/lmarkup=1) \
  FilterPane2(nb=3,hidebb=1,activate=queue,page=album,page_album/lpicsize=50,page_album/lmarkup=1)

Otherwise I don't know, to investigate a bit you could add the warn line like below (search for "sub SetFilter" in /usr/bin/gmusicbrowser)
Code: [Select]
sub SetFilter
{ my ($object,$filter,$level,$group)[email protected]_;
warn "SetFilter: object=$object filter=$filter level=$level group=$group\n";
This should tell you what group you are changing when clicking, if it was the group "Play" it would change the playlist, but it's not in your layout so it shouldn't be the case.

First your link refers to unity3d which is a game engine totally unrelated to the unity desktop.
Second, the unity desktop seems to be a bit abandoned.
I think unity use the appindicator library for that kind of thing, but I don't see anything related to progress bars, so I don't know.
If you find a library that does this and it has a typelib file (typically put in a gir package such as gir1.2-appindicator3-0.1) it should be very easy to add.
