Description jeroen 2002-08-07 11:17:05 EDT
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 :)
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-07 11:51:06 EDT
Yeah, I am sort of inclined to just dump these apps to Extras or remove from
menus at this point.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-14 17:52:44 EDT
vumeter has now been terminated.
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2002-08-16 00:51:47 EDT
Fix confirmed with re0815.1 tree.
Comment 4 jeroen 2002-08-20 13:06:07 EDT
"Recording level monitor" (vumeter -r) is still in the "Audio & Video" menu in null.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-21 16:50:33 EDT

Comment 6 Jay Turner 2002-08-21 23:23:48 EDT
