Exaile 32bits musicplayer

Post#1 by wimduk » 10 Sep 2013, 14:05

Dear readers,

I am using Porteus xfce 2.1, great distro :Bravo: , but I have some questions:
1. I am looking for the great Exaile musicplayer. Is there a xmz module somewere to load this application at boottime?
2. Is there an index with all xzm application modules?

Hope to hear from you (soon:)

With many thanks in advance,
regards wimduk

hi wimduk,

unfortunately exaile does not exist in 32bit porteus repo but you can download it and all deps manually. please open PPM (porteus package manager) then download and convert exaile from salix repository along with following packages:

Code: Select all

python,dbus-python,gstreamer,gst-plugins-base,gst-plugins-good,gst-python,mutagen,notify-python,pycairo,pygobject,pygtk
btw: thread moved from 'Development' to 'module requests'
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Hi fanthom,

Many thanks for your fast reply and your recompile instructions.
Because I am not a experienced package builder so is there some documentation on how to do that?
For now it's a big challenge for me. :%)

Kind regards
wimduk

Many thanks for your fast reply and your recompile instructions.
never provided any recompile instructions in this thread.

you just need to:
- open PPM
- search for packages in salix repo
- convert them to xzm (PPM will ask for this)

it's as easy as using any other GUI application.

no prob.

one thing to note: i couldn't play mp3 files with exaile in 64bits. probably mp3 codec is missing in gstreamer (license restrictions? - not an gstreamer expert, trying to avoid it as much as i can actually).
.ogg files were ok.
