Bugs, Features & Forks

Awesome to see you could fork and build. I'm trying tod o same and stuck on the problem that autogen.sh wants the Mono 2.0 GAC and your git repo clearly states it needs 3, and I have 4.5 and well, what gives? I'd be mighty please if you cast your eye over my issue:


and helped me get rolling. If I can get this beast built I'd be pleased and that message has in 2 days received 2 views and no replies. Maybe I'm impatient ;-), but I thought I'd weigh in here where I see some recent forking and building happening and working!

Hi folks,

I've been working on my copy of Banshee over the holiday season and
thought some of you might be interested in some changes I've
implemented there:

- revised auto-tools setup:
  > vanilla autoreconf now works;
  > --enable-x switches added for all extensions;
  > some components like the Clients and DAP are also covered;
  > some tweaks to mono discovery to look in extra places.
- improved DAP user experience for MTP:
  > no-longer try to auto-connect, instead;
  > display the potential source interface and connect without UI swapping;
  > it's no faster, but it feels better.
- mostly new user interface, I thought Banshee was looking a little old:
  > with luck this will be lighter, for example it doesn't have filters;
  > slightly different layout, focus on saving real estate;
  > couple of new widgets;
  > uses gtk3 HeaderBar so far, Popovers are planned.

If you check the source you'll notice a somewhat experimental feature
--enable-treeview, which switches Banshee's track list to use an Hyena
widget that inherits from the Gtk.TreeView widget and exposes the
protected interface for ListView, it mostly works as a drop in
replacement though drag and drop is a bit tricky and the album browser
isn't supported by it. On the other hand you get kinetic scrolling and
it feels pretty snappy.

A few bug fixes went into this too, if you want to take a look, the
work is on branch feature/lite:


Anyway, if you've read this far and have some changes of your own that
you want to share then I'd be interested to see them.

Hope you all had a great holiday, cheers!
