Description of problem:
Version 0.0.1, which is the current version in Fedora, does not support Audacious Media Player. The support was added to the git repo in mid-june. Is it possible to update the package to the newer code? (Also in F15?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current in Fedora: 0.0.1
Can't find any version tags in the git repo.
Steps to Reproduce:
gnome-shell-extension-mediaplayers-0-0.2.git1225d49.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
gnome-shell-extension-mediaplayers-0-0.2.git1225d49.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
Thanks for the update. I can't get it to work, though.
I installed this package through right-clicking and choosing 'Open with Software Install':
When restarting the shell through Alt-F2/r, or logging out and logging in a Gnome session using any user, Gnome displays a message about something going wrong and only leaving the option to log out.
Logging in using LXDE allows me to inspect, and this is what I found:
The schema from the source package is not placed in the /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas directory. I don't know if the schemas are compiled during the install, but with the schema missing and the files existing in /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions, it triggers an error in Gnome when it tries to start.
After manually copying the schema to the /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas directory and compiling them (sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas), gnome works as before.
The mediaplayers extension is also showing up on the panel. But when trying to run the (sic) 'MediasPlayers Settings' i get the notification
'Running mediasplayers-settings failed: Command not found'
I installed Banshee to see if the rest worked. (The extension complained about not finding Banshee when I tried some other control)
The other controls work as follows:
- 'Eject' button: Opens Banshee
- No response from the other buttons, including the speaker icon (mute?)
- Volum slider, shuffle switch and repeat switch operate, but have no effect.
As I don't know what of this relates to packaging or upstream, I leave that to you. If you want me to send a bug report somewhere else, just let me know.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 16 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing gnome-shell-extension-mediaplayers-0-0.2.git1225d49.fc16'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
Just wondering if the package has appeared in the testing repo yet; it's been 5 days...
yum doesn't find it.
Is this correct? (Equivalent to the su -c variant in comment 4
sudo yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing gnome-shell-extension-mediaplayers-0-0.2.git1225d49.fc16
Thanks for your testing.
