gnome-music started playing for me :)
I am writing help for gnome-music as my opw internship project. My mentor reviewed my patches. I pushed them all without music. I was very upset because if something doesn’t works properly, it hurts.
Vadim Rutkovsky (IRC nick-vrutkovs) already has helped me that how I can make gnome-music work but I failed. I was following Jackson Isaac at gnome-music channel, he was having the same problem few days back. He too was looking for help in #gnome-music. Suddenly, yesterday i.e. Monday, 10 march 2014, he told #gnome-music that he can play music on gnome-music now. Indeed, it was a great news for people like me who is struggling since last three months. Out of curiosity, I asked him how he did this? Thanks to nice people on the channel for their ready to help attitude.
I could get no success yesterday. When I get connected to the GimpNet network and joined #gnome-music today, JacksonIsaac himself queried if I could play any music. My response was negative. As I told my problem to him he probably sensed where I was wrong. His tip worked and I am really very happy.
To make gnome-music play songs using Jhbuild
After building gnome-music using:
$Jhbuild build gnome-music
You still need to build following gstreamer plugins to make gnome-music play songs for you:
*I got success in building gst-plugins-good and gst-plugins-bad.
but gst-plugins-ugly was troubling me. Everytime I tried to build gst-plugins-ugly it says Module ”gst-plugins-ugly” could not be found.
When I told about this problem to Jackson Isaac he asked me whether I have configured jhbuildrc correctly or not. i.e. it has the following line in it or not:
moduleset = 'gnome-world-3.12'
As I added the above statement to my jhbuildrc file which in .config folder, I once again tried to build gst-plugins-ugly. To my surprise, It started building 🙂 🙂
I ran gnome-music using:
$jhbuild run gnome-music
Yay! There is no stop or minus sign against every song and I can play any song just by clicking on it.
Thanks to #gnome-music to make me play my favorite songs on this wonderful application. I welcome suggestions from the development team if I still need something more to add to make music play and help others too. 😀
