Well, solving this main bug was important because almost all DVDs
are css (Content Scramble System) encrypted - so far so good.. :good:
seems this limitation will remain
While reading the links..
..any hope to get a player in 4.0 comparable to gnome-mplayer went away.
Maybe adding the gnome-mpv front end isn't a bad idea to get a bit of comfort.
....to make you an mpv convert
No way..

so far, i havn't had any joy getting gnome-mpv to work in xfce, either by extracting jssouzas from cinnamon or compiling a fresh version..
getting segfault crash on startup:

Code: Select all

$ gnome-mpv
Non-C locale detected. This is not supported.
Call 'setlocale(LC_NUMERIC, "C");' in your code.

@ncm
You need:
/etc/profile.d/gmpv.csh and and /etc/profile.d/gmpv.sh:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

export LC_NUMERIC=C

new problem (scenario)
guest account > you have to edit/create a file with root permission >
open folder with thunar (root) > edit/create/save file in mousepad (root)
> it creates a "user" file with root permission in
/tmp/xdg-runtime-guest/dconf/
This file is not removed after mousepad (root) is closed
and will prevent gnome-mpv from starting.
(unable to create file '/tmp/xdg-runtime-guest/dconf/user': Permission denied)

@ ncmprhnsbl
Have you tried to start gnome-mpv from its .desktop file (menu entry)?

this sounds like something that came up in cinnamon or mate, and had to do with login shells or something..
long story short: thunar roots' .desktop Exec line needs : gksu -l
hopefully, this then carries over to mousepad and creates the correct(root) user dconf/xdg file..

fairly sure i started gnome-mpv from menu, although not in xfce :oops: :D only in my openbox setup.. i assumed it should work elsewhere..
forgot to mention: if you activate it after bootup, you need to logout for the new enviroment variable to load

Yep, that's it,....gnome-mpv pops up now in XFCE.. :)

@ fulalas
in regards to the "user" file issue in /tmp/xdg-runtime-guest/dconf/

change in /home/guest/.local/share/applications/Thunar File Manager (root)

Exec=/opt/porteus-scripts/xorg/psu "dbus-launch --exit-with-session thunar %F"
to
Exec=gksu -l "dbus-launch --exit-with-session thunar %F"
and also in Thunar's custom actions.

I made some tests and the problem seems to be gone.

I had problem with GSM USB dongle (on 2 laptops)- it didn't show available networks and connections. I installed tcl an tk once and now after reboot it works without tcl and tk. Strange but good to know.

Donald, Have you tried SMPlayer front end for DVD playing?

I installed in Nemisis-XFCE, to play videos. No lag, perfect. Have options for playing DVDs/Bluray disks...

Version: 18.4.0 (revision 8992)
Using Qt 5.11.0 (compiled with Qt 5.10.1)
Using MPV 0.28.2

SMPlayer is a graphical interface for MPlayer and mpv.

I did, for testing purpose.
The DVD-menu is displayed but not clickable.(chapters/extras etc.)

but more important:
XFCE is GTK based and smplayer will pull in a bunch of QT stuff..
so I ended up with a huge module (~ 85 MB)..unacceptable.
May be that 1 or 2 MBs can be stripped off, but it would still be
a huge module.

Anyway, thanks for suggesting an alternative to the unloved MPV player.
(I don’t want to have to use a search engine to find out which string of commands
I need to ‘do’ something.)
MPV is a bit more appealing now if one uses ncmprhnsbl's gnome-mpv front end.

I'm just a user and not a developer,
so I don't care about the size of the module.
What is the point of stripping down a module to the bone

completely out of context
a) 85MB single app
b) 20 vs 40 MB XFCE-DE module

...if you have to add MB's of stuff afterwards to make it work

Except for your opinion (preferring app X over Y), give me some examples of Porteus 4 bugs that require the Xfce module to increase to something remotely close to the 45 MB of 3.2.2. Tip: if you know the answer, welcome to the dev team :good:
