Default Xubuntu daily build report

This is only a surface skim. I'll try to dig more once I have some
time to really lay into it at home.

-Usplash still says "Ubuntu" instead of Xubuntu. Cody in IRC said this
was supposed to be fixed. Do we need artwork or does the config need
fixed?
-gpicview replaced Ristretto? What was wrong with Ristretto? (grr...
more gnome creeping in...)
gpicview also has some security bugs which you guys probably already
know about, but I wouldn't want to be too hasty:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=495968)
Is the version in *buntu the patched one?
BTWIMHO the gpicview interface looks hauntingly like the default
picture viewer for that other OS... (just sayin')
-The new wallpaper looks sweet. Great job [insert artist name here]!
-Audacious. Mixed feelings...
I guess I'm just not one for tiny skinnable media players. At least it
doesn't look like a Winamp clone out of the box, I'll look forward to
giving this one a workout.

I'll also post my box specs and some benchmarks and if anybody's
interested or if anyone has suggestions of bugs to look for, let me
know.

Apparently this is a bug in germinate. I've spoken with cjwatson and its getting fixed.

-gpicview replaced Ristretto? What was wrong with Ristretto? (grr...

more gnome creeping in...)
How is gpicview anymore "gnome" than Ristretto is?

Ristretto dependencies: libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.20.0), libc6 (>= 2.4), libcairo2 (>= 1.5.18), libdbus-1-3 (>= 1.1.1), libdbus-glib-1-2 (>= 0.74), libexif12, libexo-0.3-0 (>= 0.3.4), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.20.1), libthunar-vfs-1-2 (>= 0.9.0), libxfce4util4 (>= 4.4.2), libxfcegui4-4 (>= 4.4.2)


gpicview dependencies: libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.20.0), libc6 (>= 2.6.1-1), libcairo2 (>= 1.4.0), libfontconfig1 (>= 2.4.0), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.14.0), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), libjpeg62, libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.19.0), libx11-6, libxcomposite1 (>= 1:0.3-1), libxcursor1 (>> 1.1.2), libxdamage1 (>= 1:1.1), libxext6, libxfixes3 (>= 1:4.0.1), libxi6, libxinerama1, libxrandr2 (>= 2:1.2.0), libxrender1

*

gpicview also has some security bugs which you guys probably already

know about, but I wouldn't want to be too hasty:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=495968)

Is the version in *buntu the patched one?
Yes. Your link reports bug marked fix in version 0.1.9-2.* http://packages.ubuntu.com/gpicview shows Intrepid at 0.1.9-2.

*

BTWIMHO the gpicview interface looks hauntingly like the default

picture viewer for that other OS... (just sayin')
Okay.
*


-The new wallpaper looks sweet. Great job [insert artist name here]!
I don't think we've changed the wallpaper yet since Hardy.
*


-Audacious. Mixed feelings...

I guess I'm just not one for tiny skinnable media players. At least it

doesn't look like a Winamp clone out of the box, I'll look forward to

giving this one a workout.
Is there another music player that you think might be a better fit? If so, which one?

I'd be very interested. You can see some work I did on it at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Development/Performance

I know most of the media players I mentioned on IRC are written in Python, but I find that much more in line with the Xubuntu philosophy over one that doesn't integrate visually with the rest of the desktop (i.e. non-GTK).

Ok, I see my mistake. I SWEAR the first time I opened gpicview the
'About' box said it was a "Lightweight image viewer for Gnome".
I must be getting dyslexic as well as nearsighted...
Besides that, I thought Ristretto was a good fit because of it being
in the Xfce "family".

Ok. The conversation at the end of that thread led me to believe that

*edvard turns head sideways*
weird, maybe cause it's on a different monitor. This one looks similar
but smoother and more "glowy"

I'll agree one hundred percent with Vincent's reply to this one.
All those skinnable players look funky and 'out-of-place' to me and
always have, especially when you have to view it at double size due to
having a high-resolution monitor (hmm... imagine a player that uses
svg skins...).
I do admit it's nice to have a separate media player. Totem's labeling
as a "Movie Player" always threw me off...
I don't know which one to suggest, honestly. I'll probably get used to
it.
Hell, I was happy with Xfmedia (despite xine lib bugs...), who am I to
complain? :P

Will do.

BTW- I noticed a few more things last night.

-First start of Mozilla Firefox started up with two tabs of ubufox
startpage that were both blank and a tab of the license page.
Subsequent runs brought up only one ubufox page. Still blank.
-I opened a terminal and grep'd dmesg for errors. Apparently uvesafb
crapped out at some point because it couldn't find v86d.
A cursory web search looks like uvesafb has replaced vesafb as the
default framebuffer driver (confirm?) which depends on v86d
(http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Documentation/fb/uvesafb.txt). Doing a
web search for this bug came up with a healthy handful of reports so I
assume it's being worked on.
Either way, I assume that one's way upstream...
That's all I have for now, I'm downloading today's daily for more
testing tonight...

Ok, I see my mistake. I SWEAR the first time I opened gpicview the

'About' box said it was a "Lightweight image viewer for Gnome".

I must be getting dyslexic as well as nearsighted...

Besides that, I thought Ristretto was a good fit because of it being

in the Xfce "family".
The version I have from Hardy says Lightweight image viewer for LXDE.

And no, just because an application declares it self as an Xfce application doesn't mean it makes it better than any other application.

*What about Quod Libet?* It's written in Python, it has tons of plugins included, and when you change the default view, it looks very, very similar to rhythmbox.*


Note, I'm not making any claims as to lightness of the application (it uses a gstreamer back end, I think), but someone could check that out if they think it might make a good option.* I'm using it on Xubuntu Intrepid, and I really like it - so it's just one person's opinion on things.* Exaile might be a good option, too.

I quite liked Quod Libet as well, though it might be a little confusing. I'll make a list off the top of my head:


Quod Libet: http://www.sacredchao.net/quodlibet/
Listen: http://www.listen-project.org/
Decibel: http://decibel.silent-blade.org/

gmusicbrowser: http://squentin.free.fr/gmusicbrowser/gmusicbrowser.html (has a very confusing interface)
Exaile: http://www.exaile.org/ (they're working on version 0.3, so this might not yet be a good idea)

Banshee: http://banshee-project.org/ (quite nice but Mono...)
And of course Rhythmbox and Xfmedia
IMO any of the above would be better than a non-GTK one (though of course, I do have strong preferences of some over others .


Thanks,
