Hello! Using Linux Mint 20.1, with Ubuntu 20.04 base

I have two questions:

1) When I was compiling Audacious, the following appeared:

Install path:                           /usr/local
D-Bus support:                          yes
GTK+ support: yes
Qt support: yes
libarchive support: no
Valgrind analysis support: yes

But I have installed libarchive-dev (v.3.4.0, the one from Ubuntu), libarchive13, libarchive-tools, so I don't understand what is missing in order to say "no libarchive support"

2) In second place, when building audacious plugins, this is the only one that appeared as a no:

Qt Support
Stream Tuner (experimental): no

Which library file in Ubuntu do I need in order to allow supporting Stream Tuner?

Thanks in advance


#1 Updated by John Lindgren about 1 month ago

  • Category deleted (core)
  • Tracker changed from Bug to Support

These features are both experimental and disabled by default unless you explicitly enable them.

libarchive support doesn't do anything yet, and streamtuner tends to crash.

#2 Updated by Thomas Lange about 1 month ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed

"./configure --help" lists all possible configuration parameters.
What you are looking for is "--enable-libarchive" and "--enable-streamtuner".

But as John said, they are disabled explicitly for good reason.
Marking this as closed.
