Hadn't the chance to explore GMM lately but noticed some updates. Took a look today and it seems that you have implemented queue to follow track no. Thanks very much. big_smile. Version 0.10.16 here.

Uhmm, I didn't change anything there.

Isn't it nice when things resolve themselves. big_smile It seems that when I select all files in a folder and drag them into a playlist the queue follows track number. I haven't really tested this exhaustively though but when I just drag a folder, the order is wrong.

If you drag a folder, it will pick whatever the order is of the files in the filesystem. If you drag files, it will get the order directly from whatever filemanager you use.

One other question: whenever I use GMM I will sometimes see some movement, like an icon flying. I don't actually see the icon flying, just some movement, even when my browser is on top of the player. It happens infrequently but will happen at least once every time I am using the player. No harm - just curious if others have observed the same thing.

That's DND related and I'm not sure why it is happening. Last week I made some changes for that, which make that problem go away. I'll probably backport it to the stable release.

Re: Goggles Music Manager

I'm testing today gmm and find it pretty much interesting. Much better than quite a lot of other options (I was using gmusicbrowser which have sound issue and do not have the gap-less feature! I'm considering gmm and aqualung but aqualung does not seem to have playlist and music library support.

I'm starting to understand a way to use gmm that would fit me well. I'm not accustomed to use playlists but I often like use to use a single playlist that I keep on modifying (deleting and creating again!). And I like to evaluate songs (like it is done in gmusibrowther). I found that I could rate songs using some few playlists (rating 100, rating 80 etc...) and more, I could import them from musicbrowser by selecting them and import them in the selected playlist !!

Re: Goggles Music Manager

Hi all,

I know this isn't slackware support forum, hoping someone might have an idea here too.

When I compile and run goggles music manager on slackware-current I just get a segfault -- any idea ?  Here is dmesg :

[ 2687.367214] gmm[4366]: segfault at 0 ip 08089bab sp bfad7ef8 error 4 in gmm[8048000+f8000]

Not sure. Can you compile with debug information and run it through gdb:

> make clean
> ./configure --enable-debug
> make
> gdb src/gmm
gdb> r

and then when it stops get the full trace:

gbb> where

Re: Goggles Music Manager

Is there any way to control gmm programatically? I'd like to have a script that I can bind to a key to control it when not in focus.

There are actually various ways to do the basic play/stop/next/prev commands.

Multimedia Keys
==========

By default, GMM will try to register the multimedia keys (XF86AudioPlay etc) through X11. If you're running gnome, it will try to use them via the gnome settings daemon.

dbus
====

GMM also exposes a DBUS interface to control playback. dbus-explorer should show the api or see the readme file http://code.google.com/p/gogglesmm/sour … unk/README

Command Line
==========

You can control playback through the command line. Run gmm --help to see the available options.

Hope this helps

Re: Goggles Music Manager

Cool! Thanks.

The reason I'd rather bind it is because I use a mix of players and I'm writing a wrapper script that will detect the currently running player and then control it with a unified interface. The cli controls seem to be exactly what I need smile

Ah, you're trying to achieve the same thing that the Gnome Settings Daemon tries to provide using a dbus interface... smile

Re: Goggles Music Manager

Hey, thanks for a great player!
one thing though, i would like the time to count down so i can see when the track ends instead of how long it has been playing. is that possible?

EDIT: one more thing, an "always on top" mode (for the Mini-player at least)

/cheers

Re: Goggles Music Manager

Why can't your window manager handle that?

Anyway, is there a way to get "now playing" info? I didn't see any "status" function either through dbus or cli. Something like mpc status.

I didn't add the always-on-top mode mode, since you can usually enable this through your window manager. The timing display shouldn't be a big deal. Though I have to find some time to do it.

Not right now. The next major version will have a 'mpris' interface, which you will be able to use to do exactly that.

Re: Goggles Music Manager

Re: Goggles Music Manager

In KDE and fluxbox you can set a rule for all windows of that name to get auto-set. Dunno if gnome lets you do such a thing.

Not sure. Perhaps GMM can check if you set it on your window and apply the same setting next time you start.

Re: Goggles Music Manager

When I click the tray icon when the window is closed, it comes up but the window doesn't take focus. Is this my WM or gmm's bad behavior? I'm using KDE

It could be both. Using XFCE here and it seems to work for me.

Re: Goggles Music Manager

Goggles seems to skip around one second at the end of my flacs, this means that gapless play doesn' work (this is Xine's problem, right?). MPD plays the same files till the end. Actually, both of them show that the length of a certain file is 2.02, and at the end of the file Goggles skips to the next song at 2.01, MPD at 2.03.

Re: Goggles Music Manager

2.01 actually looks correct to me, since we start counting at 0. 1 second later it will have started the next track (0.00). On the other hand I wouldn't rely too much on what the time indicator says but rather whether you actually hear a gap. If you say that xine doesn't actually play the whole file, you would't notice a gap of silence, but rather a somewhat abrupt transition.

No gap, but an abrupt transition.

No gap, but an abrupt transition.

That would be a xine issue. For the next major release I hope to have my own audio playback engine ready that is much more reliable regarding gaplessness...

Same here. I use Kde with Kwin. It is pretty annoying. Could it be a problem with the tray rather than the WM?

I can't understand either why the tray icon is not transparen. Why is it that way?

Re: Goggles Music Manager

HI all.  I was looking for help with a goggles music manager error.  I am using antix 8.5 however with debian testing.  I am using these to get the package:

deb http://apt.progchild.de stable main
deb-src http://apt.progchild.de stable main

gmm --version
Goggles Music Manager 0.10.22

uname -a
Linux mypc 2.6.32-1-mepis #1 PREEMPT Mon May 10 11:11:52 EDT 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

The program starts and I have imported songs.  Whenever I try to play any song or a url the program crashes and I get this message in console:

Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:108, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.

Any ideas?
