Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 70978
vumeter doesn't work
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:58:50 EST
limbo beta2, gnome-media-2.0.0-3.
The "Recording Level Monitor" app (vumeter -r) displays an empty window. No
widgets visible in the window. When run from gnome-terminal i get the following
[jeroen@anduril jeroen]$ vumeter -r
(vumeter:21397): GConf-CRITICAL **: file gconf-client.c: line 545
(gconf_client_add_dir): assertion `gconf_valid_key (dirname, NULL)' failed
The "Volume Monitor" does display something, but doesn't work. By this i mean
that i see 2 "volume bars", but although xmms is playing back an mp3, the bars
remain dark. I get the same GConf error as with "vumeter -r".
On a side note, should these apps really be in the main Applications menu? IMHO,
they would be better placed in the All Applications menu. Icon could use some
improving too :)
Yeah, I am sort of inclined to just dump these apps to Extras or remove from
menus at this point.
vumeter has now been terminated.
Fix confirmed with re0815.1 tree.
"Recording level monitor" (vumeter -r) is still in the "Audio & Video" menu in null.
extra .desktop file deleted
Oops . . . yep, gone now.
