add dir function in playlisteditor

Added by Joey Moonen almost 8 years ago

Hi there,

I'm using audacious 3.5 in Sabayon mate and I built it from source. It's working fine except I'm missing the add dir (add directory) option in the playlist editor. I would normally use this to open a folder which contains many subfolders with mp3s. Now I cannot do this anymore. Is there any way I can do this now (Open all mp3s in all subfolders and add to playlist)?

would be happy to hear from you.

cheers
Joey

Use "Add Files", select the folder (don't double-click), and click Add.

yes, this used to work like this, but I've just tried it in the new player...doesn't work anymore :(

Did you install the MP3 plugin?

RE: add dir function in playlisteditor - Added by Joey Moonen almost 8 years ago

i've downloaded the source files from the download page:
-audacious-3.5.tar.bz2 (430 KB)
-audacious-plugins-3.5.tar.bz2 (1.6 MB)
extracted, compiled and installed

i assume the mp3-plugin u mention is an input plugin, but no, the "mp3-plugin" isn't listed in any of the plugin pages...

must i download it seperately somewhere?

When you run ./configure, it prints out a list of which plugins are going to be compiled and installed. You should have reviewed this list to make sure all the plugins you needed were there. Please post the output of:

$ cd audacious-plugins
$ grep -C10 "checking for MPG123" config.log
You should see something like this:
configure:8445: $? = 0
configure:8445: result: yes

it shows me the following:

configure:8421: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "libmpg123 >= 1.12"
Package libmpg123 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libmpg123.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libmpg123' found
configure:8424: $? = 1
configure:8438: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "libmpg123 >= 1.12"
Package libmpg123 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libmpg123.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

what should i do next, libmpg123.pc is not in src/mpg123-folder only mpg123.c and Makefile

RE: add dir function in playlisteditor - Added by John Lindgren almost 8 years ago

You need to install mpg123 (the library), otherwise the Audacious plugin will not be built. Some Linux distributions provide only a single mpg123 package; others split it into mpg123, libmpg123, and libmpg123-dev. If in doubt, try installing all three. Alternatively, you could use a Linux distribution that packages Audacious 3.5 already. I believe Arch and Debian are currently doing so, maybe others as well.

i installed:

╠ @@ Package: media-sound/mpg123-1.20.1 branch: 5, [sabayonlinux.org]
╠ Available: version: 1.20.1 ~ tag: NoTag ~ revision: 0
╠ Installed: version: Not installed ~ tag: n/a ~ revision: n/a

recompiled+reinstalled the plugins > add dir functionality works now!

Many thanks for the support.
