BoomBox 0.4.4 (KDE Sound Application)

Wed, 2014/01/29 - 7:43am
ThumbnailBoomBox 0.4.4
(KDE Sound Application)
BoomBox is an audio player with built-in database for easy browsing of local music files. It has no playlist, instead it simply plays songs from current search results. These queries can be saved to give you something like "dynamic playlists". It also has support for queing up songs to be played, replacing much of the need for a playlist.
If you keep your music files well organised, or if you want to listen to songs just downloaded to a temporary folder, you can use the filesystem view (powered by the KIO library from KDE). BoomBox can also keep track of internet radio stations for you. And it can edit id3 tags in a very convenient way. And it can be controlled from another program using MPRIS2.
It does not play video and has no equaliser.
Audio players are a matter of taste, maybe this one suits you?

Full source code available from:
git clone git://boombox.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/boombox/boombox

changelog:
2014-01-29, version 0.4.4:
Bug fix release.
- Optimization: use kdeinit for faster app startup
- Alternating background colors in filesystem view.
- Bug fix: now showing track length and current position correctly on mpris2 remote control apps.

2012-12-25, version 0.4.3:
Bug fix release.
- Bug fix: application crash at startup if shuffle was active when you quit before.
- Bug fix: should not be able to edit or enqueue albums in resultview.

2012-10-27, version 0.4.2:
Bug fix release.
- Fix for loading a new song when clicking "play" first thing after application startup, wasn't working with vlc and gStreamer phonon backends.
- Fix for automatically playing next song in playlist when using gStreamer phonon backend.
- Only update "current song" label once playback of next song actually starts, before this fix it was updated a few seconds before.
- Fix 15-20 second delay in startup if kde-telepathy is installed, was causing a dbus-deadlock with the kded daemon.
- Remove icons on song position and volume sliders in main user interface, looks cleaner.

2012-01-27, version 0.4.1:
Bug fix release.
- The "Now Playing" plasma applet now supports Mpris2 dbus interface so I could finally test support for this in BoomBox. Found a couple of issues and fixed those.
- I switched to a dark colour theme and found two places where it was always showing text in black colour. Fixed to follow system palette.

Besides those small problems BoomBox is still working just fine, no problems with the xine and GStreamer phonon backends. VLC backend seems to have issues.. many annoying behaviors when using that.

2011-04-01, version 0.4:
New release with minor fixes:
- Added a Help entry to the BoomBox menu and wrote documentation.
- Added titles to the toolbars, shown when right-clicking on a dockwidget.
- Renamed some actions to sound better
- Added the actions for the collection tab to the shortcuts editor
- Changed the function of "New Playlist" now saves current settings under new name instead of starting a new blank one.
- Compile fix for ubuntu 10.04

This is not a joke!


2011-03-25, version 0.4rc1:
Finally I have something good enough for a release! Took some two years... but during those two years I have also quite happily used it full time for myself.
So now I'm hoping to get some feedback on how this works for everybody else, hopefully it can reach more people thanks to the excellent build service that opensuse provides! Also big thanks to lubos lunak for the nice kde-obs-generator!
Please comment below for any feedback/questions, much appreciated! There is no documentation yet, hoping to have time for that soon (and also hoping that it isn't really needed!)

2009-05-03:
Development on a complete rewrite has started, today I pushed this work into a git repo on the sourceforge project space. Feel free to try it, but remember that it is work in progress. Not yet suitable for everyday usage. Added a screenshot of this new version as a teaser! :)
The rewrite uses KDE4 libraries, phonon, sqlite and taglib.

0.3.1:
Small bugfix release.

0.3:
So... it's been over a year since last release. Sorry for that. But at least now a much improved release is available. Most important changes:

changed to sqlite 3. This means you will need to remove the old database file ($HOME/.boombox/music.db) before starting the new version.

Added tag editing. Quite nice to use, imo.

Added playlist support. Uses a combobox in the main window.

Switched to taglib - Cleaner and makes mp3s get length field filled out.

Lots of fixes with character encodings. Should work now.

General cleanup and restrucuring of alot of code.

Now able to read pls files.

Added tooltips to display meta info in playlist.

Fixed the equalizer. Can actually be used now... =)

Small fixes
Scroll to song playing when pressing "Add & play"
Make browser refresh after db update.
Make mainbar buttons toggle.
Use path in playlists, making them work through db updates.
Fix esc on button in browser.
Show video window when playing video, keep track of user's setting.
URLs should have all their fields filled out.
Install a .desktop file.
use fromUtf8 in bbbackend, xine_get_meta_info

Hope you enjoy it! All feedback very welcome!

Kup Backup System 0.4.0 (KDE Archiving/Backup)

Sat, 2014/01/25 - 2:03pm
ThumbnailKup Backup System 0.4.0
(KDE Archiving/Backup)
Kup is created for helping people to keep up-to-date backups of their personal files. Connecting a USB hard drive is the primary supported way to store files, but saving files to a server over a network connection is also possible for advanced users.

When you plug in your external hard drive Kup will automatically start copying your latest changes, but of course it will only do so if you have been active on your computer for some hourse since the last time you took a backup (and it can of course ask you first, before copying anything).
In general Kup tries to not disturb you needlessly.

There are two types of backup schemes supported, one which keeps the backup folder completely in sync with what you have on your computer, deleting from the backup any file that you have deleted on your computer etc. The other scheme also keeps older versions of your files in the backup folder. When using this, only the small parts of your files that has actually changed since last backup will be saved and therefore incremental backups are very cheap. This is especially useful if you are working on big files. At the same time it's as easy to access your files as if a complete backup was taken every time; every backup contains a complete version of your directories. Behind the scenes all the content that is actually the same is only stored once. To make this happen Kup runs the backup program "bup" in the background, look at https://github.com/bup/bup for more details.

What the Kup backup system consists of
  • Configuration module, available in your system settings. Here you can configure backup plans, what to include, where to store the backup and how often. You can also see the status for the backup plans here.

  • A small program running in the background. It will monitor to see when your backup destination is available, schedule and run your backup plans. It has a system tray icon that shows up when a backup destination is available.

  • Kioslave for accessing bup archives. This allows you to open files and folders directly from an archive, with any KDE application.

  • A file browsing application for bup archives, allowing you to locate the file you want to restore more easily than with the kioslave. It also helps you restore files or folders.


  • Detailed list of features
  • backup types:
    - Synchronized folders with the use of "rsync".
    - Incremental backup archive with the use of "bup"

  • backup destinations:
    - local filesystem, monitored for availability. That means you can set a destination folder which only exist when perhaps a network shared drive is mounted and Kup will detect when it becomes available.
    - external storage, like usb hard drives. Also monitored for availability.

  • schedules:
    - manual only (triggered from tray icon popup menu)
    - interval (suggests new backup after some time has passed since last backup)
    - usage based (suggests new backup after you have been active on your computer for some hours since last backup).


  • Needed backup programs

    To actually create backups of your data you will need either "bup" or "rsync" installed. They
    provide the implementations for the two different types of backups that Kup supports.

    Helping out
    Development happens at:
    https://github.com/spersson/Kup

    Translators please contact me to get started with translating a new language!

    If you feel like helping out with coding, please have a look at the list of issues there at the github page.

    Please also report any issues at the github page!

    If you do test new features that are not in a released version yet, please let me know if it works or not. This project is still small enough that it is very useful to get feedback on any testing done.


    changelog:
    Kup Version 0.4.0
    2014-01-25:
    - Bug fix: detect encrypted partitions on external hard drives.
    - Small update to keep up-to-date with new metadata format in bup v0.25
    - Add German, Italian and Swedish translations. Tagalog and Spanish are still only partial.

    Kup Version 0.4.0 beta 1
    2013-10-08:
    - Add kioslave for accessing files and folders directly from any git archive (including bup archives, of course!). Comes complete with support for metadata scheduled to be available with the soon-to-come 0.25 version of bup. Please test! Just type "bup://" in a kde-based filemanager (dolphin, konqueror, krusader et al)
    - Add a new application called filedigger, it helps you find the right version of a file and then also helps you restore that file. You can open folders and files to have a look at them before restoring, thanks to the new kioslave.
    - Add rsync-type of backups.

    Please help test the above new features! And now is also the time to translate all the new texts, please help adding your language!

    Kup Version 0.3.2
    2013-05-20:
    - Add german, italian and tagalog translations.
    - Make it more difficult to create a backup plan without a destination. (Select first usb drive automatically when connected, warn user if no drive is selected when saving)

    Kup Version 0.3.1
    2013-03-09:
    - Fix running with older versions of bup by removing compression level option, not useful for most people anyway.
    - Check if bup is installed, notify user if not.
    - Add spanish translation.

    Kup Version 0.3
    2013-02-20:
    - Adds an option to take the backup as root. Useful when you want to backup system files which needs root access to read.
    - Now checks if you are inactive (no mouse or keyboard activity) when accumulating usage time. For instance, Kup will no longer count time watching a movie on your computer as active usage time.
    - Adds ability to configure which compression level is used for backups.
    - Adds the option of selecting/deselecting hidden folders.
    - Adds infrastructure for translations and a swedish translation. Help with other languages would be appreciated!
    - Now sets the CPU and (on linux) the IO scheduler priority of the backup processes to be very nice, just to minimize risk of a running backup disturbing you.
    - Fixes a couple of bugs in the folder selection tree.
    - Shows more info about external drives connected and now also remembers more info about the drive you have selected.
    - Now uses the bup index file in your home directory instead of having the index file located in the destination archive. This can perhaps give better performance in some scenarios, not tested.
    - Adds a few hidden folders in your home directory as default excludes, should be useful for most people.

    Kup Version 0.2
    2012-02-13:
    - Introduced a new scheduling mode, Usage. Monitors how long you've been logged in since last backup was taken and suggests new backup after configured number of hours. Made this scheduling mode the default.
    - Made a new systray icon (supposed to look like a safe... you judge..).
    - The progress notification thing was just ugly & annoying, removed it. Now just showing an animated icon when taking a backup.
    - Added option to never ask user before starting to take a new backup.
    - Improved error reporting
    - Big code cleanup for more maintainable code
    - Made the config module's way of detecting/starting the daemon process more reliable.
    - Systray icon tooltip now contains info on backup plan status.
    - Systray icon now shows up with a red warning symbol if a plan has "bad" status; more than three times the backup interval has passed since last backup.
    - Bug fix, already plugged in devices didn't show up in the list for selecting external destination drive.
    - Bug fix for local filesystem destination: now detects if destination folder becomes available after a mount.

    Kup Version 0.1
    2011-12-09:
    - Initial release.

    LyX 2.0.7 (KDE Text Processing)

    Fri, 2014/01/24 - 5:20pm
    ThumbnailLyX 2.0.7
    (KDE Text Processing)
    LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance.

    LyX is for people that write and want their writing to look great, right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting details, 'finger painting' font attributes or fuzzing around with page boundaries. You just write. In the background, Prof. Knuth's legendary TeX typesetting engine makes you look good.

    On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output -- or richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced -- looks like nothing else. Gone are the days of industrially bland .docs, all looking similarly not-quite-right, yet coming out unpredictably different on different printer drivers. Gone are the crashes 'eating' your dissertation the evening before going to press.

    LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a multi-platform, fully internationalized application running natively on Unix/Linux and the Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.

    NOTE: Please use the project's mailing lists and tracker for bug reports and feedback.

    changelog:
    CHANGES in 2.0.7:
    ==================

    LyX 2.0.7 is the result of on-going efforts to make our stable version
    even more reliable and stable. We have fixed a number of bugs and made
    a number of improvements. These are detailed at the file linked below.

    The most important bug was #8854, which could lead to file corruption
    in certain cases and, more often, would lead to errors in generated
    files (e.g., PDFs). We encourage all LyX users to upgrade to this
    version.

    Please refer to http://www.lyx.org/announce/2_0_7.txt for a detailed list of changes against version 2.0.6

    MovieThumbs 0.3.3 (KDE Improvement)

    Thu, 2014/01/23 - 3:43pm
    ThumbnailMovieThumbs 0.3.3
    (KDE Improvement)
    MovieThumbs generates thumbnails for movies and series.

    For downloading the posters a working internet connection is needed. MovieThumbs works with all KDE file managers and nautilus.
    If the wrong thumbnail is downloaded include the year when the movie was released in the file name. This will help fetch the correct poster.
    All information that is between brackets () and [] will not be used to search. You can still put the year in brackets.


    A MovieThumbs version for GNOME file managers is available here:
    http://gnomefiles.org/content/show.php?content=160328

    Movie posters are downloaded from tmdb.org (The Movie DataBase)
    Series posters are from thetvdb.com (The TV DataBase)

    I would like to thank the tmdb and thetvdb teams for allowing the use of their api.


    External dependencies:
    KDE SC 4.x
    Qt 4
    QJson

    Installation:
    Use the packages for your distribution or build from source. (See INSTALL file)

    py_file_client 1.0 (KDE Networking Tool)

    Tue, 2014/01/14 - 9:49pm
    Thumbnailpy_file_client 1.0
    (KDE Networking Tool)
    Simple file client and server written in Python

    Was missing a simple tool for downloading files from my desktop computer to my notebook (and vice versa) without handling with NFS or Samba, so I created one by myself.

    Usage:

    On server site start the server with python py_file_server.py When omitting a port, 50007 is the standard port and set by the server.

    On client site start the client with python py_file_client.py Enter the IP address and the port number and change the home directory (where the downloaded files will be saved) as needed.

    With the graphical client you can navigate thru the server and download files to the client, assumed the user who has started the server has the access rights.

    The client window is splitted in two halfs: on the left site you see the files and directories on the server, the right site shows a journal of your actions respectively error messages from the server.

    For navigation double click on a server directory for entering it. Press the up button for moving up one directory level. Alternatively the directory on the server can be entered manually.

    For downloading mark the files and press the get files button.

    py_file_client is available in english and german, the server only in english. Language should be automatically set depending on your locales. If it is not EN or DE, it will be set to EN.

    You must open port 50007 (or your selected port) on your firewall. It is strongly recommended to close this port after you are ready.

    Initial release

    YouTube DL Applet 1.0 (KDE Other Utility)

    Tue, 2014/01/14 - 2:59am
    YouTube DL Applet 1.0
    (KDE Other Utility)
    Before to write this script i tried qttube. It is quite old (2007 year) and it overrides file name by something, guessed using url itself.

    Usage:
    1. Run applet from menu or just drop link or their groups. Though i don't know, what browser allowes to select several links, youtube-dl supports it.
    In first case text entry will appear, accepting multiple links, delimited by spaces.
    2. It will ask directory, where to save. This parameter is remembered after each successful run (directory must be writable for you).
    3. Process runs in terminal emulator, where you can see progress in native youtube-dl form. If terminal is not specified or could not be run, it will warn. If continued, messages are showed at the end.

    Installation:
    run ./install in sources dir
    Variable DESTDIR is supported.

    Dependencies: only kdialog and optionallt some term to show progress.

    TODO: what about queue support? No idea, how it will work in parallel.
