xfmedia and dbus

If you're using xfmedia, you may have already noticed that the recent dbus upgrade to 0.33 breaks it. xfmedia 0.8.0, available in the AUR here,uses dbus 0.23.

The good news is that the current development version works with dbus 0.33, so the next release should be all OK again. And if you really can't wait, checking it out and building it is very straightforward - see the website for details.

Re: xfmedia and dbus

It does? I haven't experienced any problem...

$ pacman -Q | grep dbus
dbus 0.33-1
$ pacman -Q | grep xfmedia
xfmedia 0.8.0-1
$ ps aux | grep bus
1000      2975  0.0  0.2   2496   736 ?        S    12:19   0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-se
1000      2976  0.0  0.3   2092  1068 ?        Ss   12:19   0:00 dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 8 --print-addres
1000      9094  0.0  0.1   3556   584 pts/0    R+   17:22   0:00 grep bus

I am listening to music on xfmedia right now.

Re: xfmedia and dbus

Interesting. Mine bombed, and I noted the following on the xfmedia site:

xfmedia wrote:

In order to enable remote control support, D-BUS version 0.23 or greater is required. The new API in the 0.3x series is supported in the current Subversion trunk.

I reckon I'll stick with the Subversion checkout anyway, now that I've gone to the bother if compiling it. I'll revert to an ABS build whenever the next release comes out.

Re: xfmedia and dbus

Here's the error message I got, if anyone's interested:

$ xfmedia
xfmedia: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

My system has libdbus-glib-1.so.1, which is a symlink to libdbus-glib-1.so.1.0.0.

Re: xfmedia and dbus

You know, I thought I could let this go, but it seems I can't (the phrase "Get a life" springs to mind roll ). If you're still interested, Stonecrest, would you mind doing the following and posting the results?

ldd /opt/xfce4/bin/xfmedia

(If you're xfmedia binary is in a different directory, adjust accordingly).

ls /usr/lib/libdbus*

TIA
