OpenSUSE Multimedia :: (11.2 Gnome) VLC Ability To Use Qt Broken

May 23, 2010

I'm having issues getting VLC to work again (openSuSE 11.2 GNOME). It used to work fine, but I think I broke its ability to use Qt when I was attempting to upgrade it and install some dev tools for something I wanted to try. When I run VLC, I get these errors:

[0x81b3090] main generic error: no dialogs provider module matched "any"
[0x806f758] skins2 interface error: no suitable dialogs provider found (hint: compile the qt4 plugin, and make sure it is loaded properly)
[0x806f758] skins2 interface: skin: subX author: Martin Poehlmann

From what I can tell, the Qt4 plugin is in the correct location (/usr/lib/vlc/gui/, so I'm not sure what's causing it to fail. As far as I can tell, it's some conflict among Qt packages between existing ones and ones that I tried to upgrade. Is there a way to get a list of all qt packages that come installed by default and their versions so I can attempt to revert back to it?

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Broken / Get It To Work?

May 21, 2010

Gnome has decided to break on me.
When I log in there are no panels, no menus and lots of other things have gone awry.
Fail-safe is fine.

I have read lots of articles, deleted various .gconf files, problem remains...

Debian Multimedia :: Sid - Gnome Broken After Update / Fix It?

Sep 10, 2011

Just did a recent update with Sid, and upon reboot, I noticed that the theming engine appears to be out of whack a little. I've provided a screen shot for some clarity. As you can see, some programs that open do not use the set GTK theme, but instead reverts back to default. I've also noticed that in appearances, I now get that message that says pixmap engine is required, even though I have it installed. The biggest update was to gnome 3.0.2. At the moment, it doesn't affect usability at all, and I'm hesitant to undo the updates, as things that didn't work before now works! Ahh Sid! Living life on the dangerous side I is! If anyone can provide some insight into this issue (a fix is not of high priority),

Debian Multimedia :: Install Gnome On Testing - Broken Packages

Sep 12, 2015

I'm on Debian testing and every time I try to install Gnome I get this:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:07]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo tasksel install gnome-desktop --new-install
tasksel: apt-get failed (100)

I tried installing it manually:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:35]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo apt-get install gnome                     
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done

[Code] ....

Is this a problem in Debian repos (held packages) or I'm actually doing something wrong?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Usbmuxd Broken In 11.4 / Resolve This?

Mar 12, 2011

Did my 11.4 upgrade today, and so far things have been going pretty good, but I'm having a slight problem with my iPhone4 being "seen" correctly by my desktop environment, and I was hoping someone would be able to answer a question or two for me.

In the 11.4 RPM for usbmuxd, a udev rule is installed which controls the "mounting" and "unmounting" of the iOS device. The udev rule expects a certain username and group to be present, as it runs under that specfic username (but unfortunately the RPM doesn't create the username and group, and neither are created at install time). This prevents iOS devices from being seen correctly by programs like banshee, amarok, etc.

Logging in as 'root' and spawning the 'usbmuxd' process as root works fine, but it doesn't work so well for other non-root users.

Does anyone have any idea(s) as to what group, etc that the "usbmuxd" user should be in?

Once I get this working, I'd be happy to write up a FAQ for getting the iPhone working under openSUSE .. .this is something that has been hit or miss for me with OS (and has worked pretty well with some other distros)...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Boxee - Ability To Add A Netflix App ?

Mar 15, 2011

I just installed Boxee on my freshly built Mythbuntu machine. Being my first experience with an HTPC media center, I am impressed.

That being said, I began to link Netflix, MLB, and other accounts. I was looking for the ability to add a Netflix app, but have yet to find it. I attempted to use the Boxee browser to navigate to Netflix, which I did, but the mouse cursor would not select anything.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok 2.3 Broken Equalizer (Distortions)?

Jun 8, 2010

As you may, not that long time ago, Amarok 2* got an equalizer. Amarok 2.3 equalizer behaves differently than equalizers in all other players I used (including Amarok 1.4). I just cannot make Amarok 2 sound right. I set equalizer to Full Bass + Treble preset. It is somewhat better than "Zero" preset, but it sounds too blunt (flat) nonetheless, while in Amarok 1.4 (and in Clementine) this preset sound just right for me.

Details (Amarok 2.3.0):The most obvious difference what I see is preamp (pre-amp), which is set to 0 dB in Amarok 1.4 preset and to -4.9 dB in Amarok 2. When I try to move it up to 0 dB, while Full Bass + Treble preset is active, I get unbearable high pitch distortions already with pre-amp set to -2 dB. I tried playing creating my own preset, but I cannot get the same sound as in Amarok 1.4.

In other words:is there any way to make Full Bass + Treble preset Amarok 2.3.0 sound like Amarok 1.4 preset?I am not an audio expert of any kind, but Amarok 2.3.0 just sounds different (in a bad way) for me. Maybe I am missing something?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost Ability To Convert WMF Graphics After Upgrade To 11.04

Jul 12, 2011

I have a very large graphics library that I use regularly, but all files are in WMF format. Prior to upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 (was previously on 10.04), these files would preview in Nautilus, and GIMP would automatically convert them when they were opened.

Now, these files no longer preview in Nautilus, nor do they open and convert in GIMP. Package libwmf0.2-7 is installed.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: XBMC Playback Of DVD Folders Broken After Packman Updates?

I run XBMC 10.1 (packman version) on openSUSE 11.4 x86_64. After a normal package update (zypper up) last weekend, I can't play none of my DVD folders (VIDEO_TS structure) anymore. When selecting a movie to play nothing happens (XBMC log file message "WARNING: could not find codec parameters for /path_to_movie/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO"). AVIs still play fine. I reproduced the problem on my laptop too: After the following updates the problem occurs:

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Make Gnome-mplayer Recognize Commands Like "{a6}" Inside Srt Files On 11.3 - GNOME 2.30.2

Jan 10, 2011

I use gnome-mplayer 1.0.0 and Totem Movie Player 2.30.2 to view videos Both read subtitles well from srt files. But both are not able to read {a6} command in the srt files.

NOTE:- {a6} command serves the purpose of putting the subtitles on top of the screen, making it possible for subbers to display lyrics/additional footnotes on top, while at the same time, having the dialogues to show in their usual position.

Is there are way to force either of them to read the special commands properly?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Applications Recognize Gnome Shortcuts For Multimedia Keys?

Jan 8, 2011

Recently I installed MPlayer with its default gui and its interfaces SMPlayer and GnomeMPlayer. When I'm using GnomeMPlayer it responds to multimedia keys as configured in Gnome shortcuts, even if it's minimized or running in another virtual desktop. But it doesn't happen to the other two gui's mentioned above. I have also noticed that native Gnome applications or with Gnome support like Banshee and Rhythmbox rspond to multimedia keys even when the gui is closed and they are running only in the system tray. But it never occurs in non-Gnome applications like VLC, MPlayer and others. Jetaudio wich responds to these keys in MS Windows running under Wine doesn't even recognize them.

So I came to the conclusion that only native Gnome applications or with Gnome support recognize multimedia keys because, as it seems, they receive the signal from Gnome configurations. Others applications doesn't do so. Here is my question: Is there some way to make all applications recognize the configuration of Gnome multimedia keys shortcuts? (Of course it would not be fine if they recognized ALL Gnome shortcuts because they could conflict with shortcuts from another applications. The idela would be that they recognize ONLY Gnome multimedia shortcuts.)

Ubuntu :: Gnome Power Manager Broken?

I am having issues with Gnome Power Manager. My wife and I have identical computers, with Linux Mint 8 installed on both. My Linux Mint 8 is a fresh install, whereas her's was an upgrade. Anyway, when I click suspend or hibernate nothing happens, not even an error. On my wife's computer this works just fine. sudo pm-hibernate, sudo pm-suspend, and sudo /etc/acpi/ do absolutely nothing.

Ubuntu :: Stuck At Log-in Loop / Is GNOME Broken?

Dec 28, 2010

When I boot into Ubuntu, it goes to the log in screen. I can type in my password and then the screen flashes black and then the log-in screen comes back. If I boot into recovery mode, I can log in via terminal, but if I type startx it just brings up a black screen and a mouse cursor and that's it. Did GNOME get messed up? How would I fix it? I have an Ubuntu LiveCD that I can use, so if I have to install any packages or something, would I be able to download them in the livecd and just install them on my broken installation instead of having to figure out connecting to wifi in a terminal?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Volume Control In GNOME?

Nov 14, 2009

I normally run KDE, but installed GNOME as well on my netbook (running openSUSE 11.2) to try out. However, I noticed there is no longer any volume control applet. The GNOME panel control is labeled 'deprecated', and the volue Fn keys, which work fine in KDE, do not work at all. I tried launching the PulseAudio Volume Control app, but it gives me a "Connection Failed: Connection Refused error". I still have sound, and I can adjust the volumes in alsamixer, but is rather inconvinient. What is the "right way" to adjust volumes in 11.2's GNOME?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Banshee With 11.2 Gnome 2.28.0?

Dec 12, 2009

i have a fresh installation of opensuse 11.2 32-bit. my soundcard is terratec ewx 24-96. the card is detected in yast, and i can play test sound from the yast/sound panel. all volume sliders are set to maximum values (i have also double checked it in alsamixer).

i *can* hear the sound when doing this test from the gnome terminal:

speaker-test -dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

however to make this test work:

speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav

i had to remove the asound-pulse.conf file. after removing this file the second test (speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav) works. removing this file also solved the problem of missing sound in videos videos played in firefox. the original contents of the asound-pulse.conf file was:

pcm.pulse {
type pulse
ctl.pulse {


the problem is i can't play any audio files (.wav or .mp3) in banshee.

i am sure the .wav file i use while testing is ok as i can play it with aplay.

when i try playing the .wav file, banshee does not complain about any missing codecs. the slider moves as the file is being played. i have also started banshee with the --debug option, but there were no errors in the output.

so my guess is that banshee is playing the files, it's just that it sends the data to the wrong device/channell or whatever it is.

all of the gstreamer packages i have installed are from the packman repository.

when i run gstreamer-properties, the only setting on the audio tab that gives me sound is: alsa (for the plugin) and default (for the device).

Fedora :: GTK2 Theme Broken In Gnome Shell / What To Do?

I am trying to theme my Gnome Shell experience, and I have little complaints for the Shell Theme/GTK3 side of things. However, even though there are GTK2 files included in the packages, my GTK2 apps are theme-wise broken. The colors are not on par and the buttons are not round as the theme should say, as it's still supposed to work since the files are provided.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-do Broken On Upgrade - All Plugins Disappeared

Possibly just download the plugins myself (although I can't seem to find any direct links?)

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-volume-control Broken After Yum Update?

May 19, 2010

My challenge today is a broken sound mixer in gnome. Yesterday I run 'yum update' and it installed about 200 updates. This morning I rebooted, when double-clicking the 'speaker' icon in the top right corner of my gnome and I got a "crash".

(I have to go to mixer and enable 'front speakers' before I get any sound - thats something else i'd like to fix one day) Here is what bug-buddy has to say:

Distribution: CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
Gnome Release: 2.16.0 2007-02-18 (CentOS)
BugBuddy Version: 2.16.0
Memory status: size: 265785344 vsize: 265785344 resident: 10158080 share: 7


Any advice would be great - i think I should start by reinstalling the gnome mixer, but not sure which 'yum' that is contained in. I did do some reading about rolling back, but I read that is by default disabled!! Arh! why! only when you broke something you realise you need to turn it on.... o well hey ho.
