Visualizations

steve01351
Jesus.  I've been trying to get visualizations now for 6.5 hours.   I read that I need community extensions.  No software manager I have (including Synaptic) says anything about community extensions or visualizations.  I've tried every search I can think of and read every help file I could find.  None of them are actually helpful.  I just want visualizations.  It does't seem like finding them should be an all day project.  I'd really appreciate some help here.

You need to build banshee-community-extensions with "--enable-openvp" from source if there's no package ready for your distribution.

This will build the OpenVP extension which displays visualizations.

Note that this will only work with the 2.6.x branch and you also need the outdated taoframework for that.

Well, I appreciate it.

I've just been back to Windoze too long I guess.  I know  "You need to build banshee-community-extensions with "--enable-openvp" from source if there's no package ready for your distribution." probably means I need to find the tarball, but I can't seem to find it, and "You need to build banshee-community-extensions with "--enable-openvp" from source if there's no package ready for your distribution." is pretty self-explanatory, and I'm already running 2.6.2, but "you also need the outdated taoframework for that." means nothing at all to me.

I appreciate the reply, but given all that I think I should just stick with Clementine if I'm going to use Linux - or maybe just stick with Windoze.

Thanks though

Re: Visualizations

You can find patches for building taoframework on recent distributions here:

http://schmatzler.de/my_slackbuilds/banshee/SlackBuilds/taoframework/

The actual tarball for it is on Sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/taoframework/

The banshee-community-extensions are on gitorious, but I recommend using my own source:

http://schmatzler.de/my_slackbuilds/banshee/SlackBuilds/banshee-community-extensions/banshee-community-extensions-7ccd277d86ed3fa4de7a0a05bcd91d6d10333010.tar.gz

I reversed some GTK3-related changes in there so all of the extensions will still work with 2.6.x. Somehow the dev's thought porting some of the plugins to the 2.9.x branch and then abandoning it was a good idea.

Building banshee with all extensions is a real mess, I know. I do packages for Slackware on a regular basis. The whole thing with tao and OpenVP is just one side of the coin. In order to get the lyrics plugin running on a non-gnome desktop I had to build gnome-sharp, then build all the extensions and then remove gnome-sharp again because it causes crashes if gnome isn't running. I also had to link banshee against an older version of sqlite lately and ship that with my own package because something broke. Not fun.

If there's no package maintainer for your distribution, you will have to invest a lot of time to get it running. The best way to use banshee is with one of the distributions mentioned on http://www.banshee.fm .

If you really want to dig into the source and build some things yourself, you can look into my sources for Slackware - it's not Debian or Ubuntu, but in the .SlackBuild files you can see how I've built each package. I also tried to include notes that clarify why I did specific things:

Re: Visualizations

Frank-211

Hi,

BCE is now hosted on github (someone need to update the website). There is a branch stable-2.6 that doesn't contain the gtk3 changes and should work out of the box with 2.6 banshee.

Cheers
