Thanks sacamano_m82!

it wasnt a full time stupid question big_smile

Re: A new lightweight music manager

I've tried to use it at my FreeBSD 7.0 machine, but it fails.

First: Why the HECK do you use gnome-config?
Second: Why don't you provide OSS bindings? ALSA is ugly and Linux-only. http://4front-tech.com/hannublog/?p=5

Thank you smile

Re: A new lightweight music manager

I'm a mpd fan myself. But I have to admit: this app looks really promising (A Silver Mt. Zion on the screenshots! yay!).

Anyway, I'm having the same problem as others above:

[luiz@pearl ~]$ consonance

** (consonance:12384): CRITICAL **: (init_config): Unable to load conrc, err: File is empty
zsh: segmentation fault  consonance

I don't use gnome-config.
Well, I started out with support for ALSA, but since I use libao, I guess it would be easy to add OSS support too.

This has been fixed in SVN trunk.

Could you implement a search function for the library?

Thanks for this great piece of software.

Re: A new lightweight music manager

ogg/flac/wav support has been added to SVN trunk.
A PKGBUILD to build the latest revision is here: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=16933

Statutory warning:
* Might crash randomly.
* Will probably set your hard disk on fire and if lucky, explode it to smithereens.

Bug reports are welcome and can be filed at the sourceforge tracker: https://sourceforge.net/projects/consonance/

Yes, you aren't using gnome-config in the trunk... Somehow.
But PLEASE provide OSS-support smile

Re: A new lightweight music manager

Just some things:
taking a folder (from file panel) that have subdirectories  to the playlist doesn't work.
Example: a folder called 'Ambeon' that have into another folder called 'fate', i have to enter into the 'Ambeon' folder to drag the 'fate' folder to playlist. Does have anything to do with this?

Other thing, in the statistics shows some artists and albums, but on the library panel, nothing it's showed.

and last, what about a .desktop, to be added to the menus and become more accessible. wink 
Two questions:
what about the name 'consonance'? No problems, i'm just curious...

I have 3 images in JPG format with some musics in the folder, when the player goes to play a music in this folder it uses a image in the folder to the album cover, and i ask: what are the requirements to choose a image as album cover?

Just some thoughts, take what you want! big_smile

Until now, no crash, and still without any crash!

Yep, drag and drop from the file view is not recursive, it adds files only one level deep.
The menu item 'Enqueue[recursive]' does what you want.

Start consonance as 'consonance -e' and post the o/p. Thanks.

Yep, this has to be done eventually.

Heh. There is no background to the name 'consonance'. I just chose it at random. smile
Regarding album art, I just choose an image at random right now. This has be made more robust eventually.
Thanks for testing !

Re: A new lightweight music manager

I'm really liking this.  Much less hassle than MPD, but still really fast.  I think it would be great if you kept this as speedy as possible, instead of loading it up with features.  Thanks!

I gave it one more chance, uninstalled the program and erased all my configuration files, take the program again from the SVN, and...
wow, it's working perfect!

I like 'Consonance', it sounds good. lol

Well, thanks for the answers, and let me do more observations now... =p

1- I think that the 'show hidden files in files view' option, would be better in the right-click menu on file view.
More convenient.

2- I think that it's good you can cross the mouse cursor over the tray icon, and it shows you the same that the OSD shows.
It could have a option (or not) on the 'preferences' to enable it.

3- On the OSD, the 'length' part would be greater if the current time is dynamically showed too, like this (current time / length:
Artist: xxxx
Album: xxx
Length: 01:56 / 04:32

But it's more (only) useful, if the point 2 above is possible to be done.

4- I think that the album art in the main window program, should be bigger than what it is, i think the double of the current size would be more appreciable. Don't you think?

5- At last, the 'play' and 'pause' button, in the right-click menu on tray icon should be dynamically. Just have ONE  'play/pause' button, so if the music is playing, the tray menu just shows the 'pause' button, and if the music is paused, the tray menu just shows the 'play' button. A little more efficient.

That's all. Remember that are just suggestions.

When you think make translate of the application, i'm here to do the brazilian portuguese translate, if you want of course.
I'm here to be one more to help in what you need.

Thanks! o/

Re: A new lightweight music manager

Ok.
Then, don't have a way to check if a new svn version is avaliable?

Edit: i've seen that the svn command does somethings, but i checked here: http://consonance.svn.sourceforge.net/v … onsonance/
and did see that the new revision it's the 516, and mine is the 510, and now i'm doing the 'yaourt -S consonance-svn'.
Is this right, checking the svn revision this way?

No, it is not. smile The SVN revision number has to be updated in the PKBUILD.
I'll cook up a script to do that, everytime I make a SVN commit.

Re: A new lightweight music manager

Hi again,
i've observed somethings:

1- imagine a playlist with 3 songs, A, B, C.
I select the 'shuffle' box and then select the song B to play (and i go sleep), then comes the song C, and then the song A and after this it stop, ok. (when i wake up) i go and just click play (remember that it stopped on the A song), after finish the song A it just stop, but have 3 songs in playlist.
The shuffle sequence don't have to be cleaned or something like this?

2- [Opinion] Other case, the same 3 songs (A, B, C) in playlist, i mark the 'shuffle' and the 'repeat' option and click 'play', everything goes fine, but i hearding the song B, after finish of play it, the B song was selected again, and after again... (i know that the playlist is little, but it's just a example)
I marked the 'repeat' and 'shuffle' box to repeat the playlist in shuffle mode, repeat the same music i think that is not very nice. =/

3- I have a song with a lot of characteres on the title, and when it goes to play, the status bar (where stays the song title) resized my Consonance window, and happen the same with the window maximized.  neutral

(Sorry my english.)

See ya! o/
