minitube 1.5
« on: August 08, 2011, 11:35:03 AM »
Hello

is your mini-tube 1.5 extension working ok?  (on a fresh tcl system?)

it does not seem to be working right here. No video plays or sound.

Other things work correctly , like youtube in a browser.

hi there is already an active thread in bugs section

and the problem is opengl dependency which is in Xorg so you need to load it

hello

mini tube works but now my laptop is using Xorg for graphics.

It has gone a bit sluggish. Screen draws are slow and stuff.

I have correctly installed the extra graphics extension which is recommended with Xorg
but it made no difference

Is there any way to still keep mini tube working but get back to old Xvesa graphics on my laptop.

thanks

there is a dirty way: backup libGL.so.* from Xorg-7.5

first copy them to file system / from /tmp/tcloop/Xorg-7.5/
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -a /tmp/tcloop/Xorg-7.5/usr/local/lib/libGL.so.* /usr/local/libthen add to backup list (/opt/.filetool.lst)
Code: [Select]
echo usr/local/lib/libGL.so.1 >> /opt/.filetool.lst
echo usr/local/lib/libGL.so.1.2 >> /opt/.filetool.lst

if the size of libGL.so.1.2 is too big for backup you can create an extension see wiki page for details about extension making

Of course the above won't work if the app actually tries to use opengl...

i think best way is to leave phonon backend choice to user i will remove phonon backend gstreamer dependency
phonon backend mplayer and xine also available

yes

i am not sure where you sit on the idea that a dependancy should be as invasive as to  change the whole graphics engine for a persons OS.

Here, Xorg caused issues with my tcl and a sluggish display on the laptop via Xorg.

Also people may not realize to install the other dependancy that is recommended
when running Xorg  (graphics..)

so i tried un-installing Xorg and it did not work. This further then
seemed to break certain Apps from appearing correctly on my screen.

In summary, Xorg messed things up on my tcl os.  (by this point i'm not too bothered about mini-tube anymore)

I then deleted Xorg from TCE. This allowed my machine to go back to Xvesa but all the apps were screwed up.

I then re-installed Xvesa and finally got back to some place normal. But there are still apps that now don't show correctly on my screen.

What i mean to say is, is it normal procedure to have an app requiring a dependancy like Xorg which, when installed, then changes tcl to such a level?

If you think Xorg changes things, you haven't seen the Gnome extension ;)

ye

i don't know much

it just caused a bit of trouble with tcl here. (Xorg)

if it's between that and not running Minitube...then Minitube goes
to the side lines here...i'm afraid.

unless there is an easy effective way to have Mini-tube find it's Xorg
stuff but still run tcl using Xvesa.

you can now use minitube without Xorg
just update your minitube extension and load phonon-backend-mplayer

mintube still doesn't play though,  since a resent change no video info is obtainable.

Continuous error "cannot get video info" and skips through each of those videos listed without playing.
