Title: Linphone 3.6.0
Post by: sledgehammer on June 14, 2013, 09:08:46 am
I have a pending request in for lyx 2.0.6, so I hate to be pushy.

But linphone 3.6.0 was just released and, since I use it and lyx constantly, it would be very nice if they were both in the repositories.

sledgehammer, can you try both lyx-2.0.6 and linphone-3.6.0 via below source links?

http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86/
http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86_64/

PS: I will try to ask the repo maintainer to move it to testing repo after it is fully tested

hata_ph,

Thank you so much.  I tried lyx 3.6.0 first as I need it and can always use Twinkle (which I don't much like) rather than the repository version of linphone (3.5.2-which I don't much like, but less).

Lyx 3.6.0 loaded fine and opened files fine, with a big exception:  It says that the document class "article" requires "external files that are not available."  Now the article class is the main lyx class and comes with the repository's version of tetex.  However, after much experimentation, about 6 months ago I decided that texlive, huge though it is, is better than the much smaller tetex, so I removed tetex and installed (selectively) texlive.

The way texlive works is that when lyx says it can't find a document class, I run:

Quote
cd /home/johwhi/texlive/2012/bin/i386-linux
and then
Quote
./tlmgr gui
which opens up the texlive internet window and, from there, I download the missing document class.

I tried to do this just now (tried to load the default texlive repository so I can download "article,") but  I get the following error:
Quote
Loading of remote database failed.
Error message:
The Tex Live versions supported by the repository
(2013-2013)
do not include the version of the local installation.
(2012).

I will stop here.  I don't know much about texlive.  Perhaps it hasn't yet adapted to the new lyx.  But I write because it might be that somehow you could rather easily change the date of your version of 3.6.0 from 2012 to 2013.  If so, texlive might find the right default repository.   I will be looking into this further as, if there isn't an easy fix, I will have to find lyx version 2.0.5.1 and reload that. 

Thank you again.  I will look at linphone tomorrow.  Late here now.

I couldn't resist trying linphone 3.6.0.

It seemed to install fine.

But it would not load:

liblinphone.so.5 seems to be loaded:

sledgehammer,

How did u install linphone? via gslapt?
How you install texlive?
Title: Re: Linphone 3.6.0
Post by: sledgehammer on June 19, 2013, 07:40:29 am
concerning linphone, I installed via the VL repository and last night, using installpkg.

I don't recall how I installed texlive.  I will look and get back to you.  I know I did not download the whole thing, but did it piecemeal.  That's why, I think, I had to keep downloading specific document types.
  It  worked well with lyx.

You should add the untested repository and install via slapt-get or gslapt.  That will allow each package to install the necessary deps.  Doing it via installpkg completely bypasses the dep resolution process.
Title: Re: Linphone 3.6.0
Post by: sledgehammer on June 19, 2013, 10:50:34 am
Thanks M0E-lnx

I did that (loaded the unstable repository and then both programs via gslapt).

It didn't change anything re the lyx install, so my comments, above, are still appropriate.

It did change linphone significantly and now linphone 3.6.0 almost loads.  Here is what I get:

I just tried this on a 7.0 64-bit vm and it works fine for me.

I installed via slapt-get after enabling the untested repo.

enabled repos are packages, extra, patches, testing, untested.
Title: Re: Linphone 3.6.0
Post by: sledgehammer on June 19, 2013, 02:10:36 pm
Perhaps my problem relates to my being unable to find the untested repository.  All I see is unstable.  However, both programs were in the unstable repository

linphone-3.6.0 should be available at the testing repo now...what I would do is...remove linphone-3.6.0 via gslapt...and reinstall linphone-3.6.0 via gslapt again...
make sure the testing repo is enabled...remember to clear the gslapt's cache first and update before reinstall linphone

PS: linphone-3.6.0 need mediastreamer-2.9.0 and ortp-0.22.0 as dependencies...

For the lyx issue,

where is your texlive files now?

I read from the lyx website, you should out it in your home dirs...

Quote
Locally installed LaTeX files
texlive

    If you place your additional LaTeX class and style files in
    ~/texmf/tex/latex
    LyX (and LaTeX) should be able to find them automatically.

http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LyXOnUbuntu

PS: And again, please install lyx via gslapt to resolve any dependencies issue

hata_ph,

I did all those things.  Deleted 3.6.0 from the repositories.  logged out to clear cache.  logged in and enabled testing in gslapt.  Then installed linphone 3.6.0.

This time the gui flashed on screen but then went away, leaving the same "badaccess" message:

hata_ph,

The lyx error was my fault as your email correctly notes.  I had simply (and stupidly) neglected to reconfigure lyx 2.06 after installing it (lyx has always had a "reconfigure" button).  It now works perfectly. 

Thanks!

In case of interest, my texlive files, before and after loading lyx 2.0.6, are at /home/johwhi/texlive and /home/johwhi/.texlive2012.  Don't know if that's the right place but since it works as is, I plan to leave them there.  I will let you know if I run into problems. 

BTW, after working with texlive for several months now, I find it much more powerful than tetex.  It is pretty slick.

Click Enable self-view give me the badaccess error too...
do call with linphone work?

Yes.

So long as I delete linphonerc first and then load linphone, calls seem to work fine.

However, once I hit the enable self view button, it crashes and won't reload with that linphonerc.

I can't find any info about that error...is that option important?
have you try asking this in the linphone forum?

hata_ph,

I don't know if the option is important or not.  I will try using linphone without it for a while and let you know.  I do know now not to push the "enable self view" button and hope I remember that.

In searching the linphone forum, I find the following from, I think, the moderator:

Hi,

There was some API changes in the mediastreamer2 library.
"audio_stream_->session" needs to be replaced by "
audio_stream_->ms.session".

Cheers,
Ghislain

I looked for the linphone version of mediastreamer and find mediastreamer2.9.0.tar.gz  is latest (added to the linphone site June 12, 2013). 

http://download-mirror.savannah.gnu.org/releases//linphone/mediastreamer/

However, mediastreamer 2.9.0 is also the version I have installed from the VL repository.

I have no clue how to replace "audio_stream_->session" with "audio_stream_->ms.session" in the mediastreamer library, but I suspect use of linphone by those of us using VL will be adversely impacted until linphone 3.6.0 is fixed by somebody.

Well,

I downloaded linphone 3.6.1 from

http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/linphone/3.6.x/sources/

and installed it via slackbuilds.org,

but it still crashes on "enable self view."

I wonder if it would crash were I a pretty blonde?

And, though linphone 3.5.2 loaded slowly (2 or 3 minutes) following reboot, with 3.6.1, it is very very slow on loading.  Takes half an hour or more to load. I can reduce the loading time by removing a couple hundred names from .linphonerc but that, of course, defeats the purpose of an address book. I wonder if Gates bought linphone?

It (lyx 2.0.6) now works perfectly.

I may have spoken too soon.....right now lyx won't save.  Perhaps something wrong with my system.

I will check further as time permits.

Post by: sledgehammer on June 25, 2013, 01:38:15 am
Well, I've got a problem.

Linphone 3.6.0 works fine, excepting the enable self-view button, provided putting up with a 30 minute load time is "working fine."

And lyx 2.0.6 works fine if started from the command line but not if started from the gui.  For example, if started from the gui, Lyx crashes on "save file," but saves fine if started from the command line.

And some other programs are looking different.  For example, etm (started from the command line with etm_qt.py) works and looks fine, but etm started from the gui seems to work fine but has bigger and bolder font. 

My attempts to fix by a vasm autosetup, reloading qt4, and reloading python and wxpython did not help.

Any suggestions?  I obviously have screwed up something pretty basic to the vector linux system.

No, no error.  I guess if I could figure out what program starts the gui I could run that from the command line and see what errors show.  But I am not sure what program does that.

Thanks hata_ph.

I reloaded libgnome 2.30.0 from the VL repository and that fixed the gui problem both with lyx and etm.  I note, for what its worth, that I had to bypass a dependency error notice ("Depends: bluecurve-icon-theme") in order to re-load libgnome.

Now, my main remaining problem is the time it takes to load linphone 3.6.0.  With 300 addresses in linphonerc it takes about half an hour to load.  Very slow also when saving new entries. 

As I continue to use it, I may figure it out.

Sorry as I am not sure about the linphone loading time and the enable-self-view error...maybe you can send a reports to the linphone developer about your issue...

I am in contact with the linphone forum and so far their suggestions have not helped.

I am beginning to think that it is a problem with either libgnome or libcanberra.  When I try to load either of these programs from the VL repository I get a bypass error.  The libgnome bypass error is mentioned above.  The libcanberra bypass error is:

Concerning the version you have in the repository (3.6.0) and the version I am now using (3.6.1 from slackbuilds), both of which have the same problem on my system ("enable self view" doesn't work and loading with numerous contacts in linphonerc takes forever),  a knowledgeable slackware fellow on the Linphone forum, a fellow who agrees with me that Linphone is the best of the sip phones, suggests:

Quote
It seems to me that you also have issues with connection, this is not
just you, perhaps it is occurring because Linphone has a too long
timeout checking status of each contact, which is annoying, or this
problem is resulted in checking of status in conjunction with
connectivity issue by your ISP.


He suggests that I remove the contacts from linphonerc and find an

Quote
external contact management program that would
display contacts in click-able hyperlinks

I think that's a great idea.  Do you have any suggestions of a program I could use which would hold the addresses and allow me to quickly copy and paste them into linphone? 

Interestingly, he also suggests that I should not eliminate the possibility that someone in the upstream internet facilities doesn't want Linphone to work right.

Well, here's the linphone story to date:  The version in the testing repository (3.6.0) takes forever to load if many names in linphoneric AND crashes on "enable self video."  I downloaded 3.6.1 from the linphone site (if you try to download 3.6.0 you get 3.6.1) and installed via slackbuilds.  Its still slow but "enable self video" doesn't crash.  slackbuilds says to pass "VIDEO=yes" to the slackbuild script when compiling but the SBO script so build nonetheless shows "Video=false." and at the config point:  video disable.  A fellow on the linphone forum thinks I should consider making a bug report but I have no clue how to do that.

I have removed all the names from linphonerc moved them to a text file.  linphone now works find, audio-wise, but  I have to cut and paste in the phone numbers.

Thanks for all your help.

what is the function of the enable-self-video actually?
Title: Re: Linphone 3.6.0
Post by: sledgehammer on July 02, 2013, 02:33:14 pm
When pressing the "enable self video" button in linphone 3.5.2, a video of the user shows on the screen.

I received the following from the linphone administrator this morning:

Quote
Hi John,

To speed up things you can set subscribe=0 for each of your friends in your linphonerc. You will then no longer be able to see their presence status but it will no longer block the UI.

Cheers,
Ghislain

I did this and linphone now loads fine with all my contacts in linphonerc.  How this trick is to be communicated to the user, I have not a clue.

Did the linphone administrator mention is that a bug for slow loading of many contact list?
Did he/she mention about the enable-self-video issue too?

No, but another fellow, also an administrator I believe, suggested that I consider making a bug report.  He also asked if I had tried Linphone on another distribution and I said "no."


Quote

No.  They had me check the .configure line on the SBO to determine whether video was enabled after I compiled with "VIDEO=yes."  I did so and reported that the .configure line reported "video disabled."

I am now running Linphone mostly from the command line:

Quote
$ linphonec

call sip:17758888888@diamondcard.us

(Above is a phoney number) Linphone then dials the number (which I get from a text file).

the linphone gui sucks with "subscribe=0"

Question:

When running linphone from the command line I go to a text file for the Contact info (phone number in my case) and then paste it between sip: and @diamondcard.us.

I wonder if there is some fairly easy way to automate this without having to learn python or some such?  The linphone gui makes an attempt, but its a pretty poor attempt in that there is no "search again" function and the contact list is not alphabetized.

Well,

I have given up on linphone for the time being.  It is better in so many ways than twinkle, but twinkle works.  I tried twice today to do a conference call on linphone and failed.  Conference worked fine on twinke.

Taki is pretty close. It's a new softphone for Blackberry and might be

Well, I don't think they are updating it anymore. It's kind of like our
Windows softphone. It's the best out there still and we haven't updated
it in a long time.

hata_ph,

Having said that (see above correspondence with diamondcard), this morning Twinkle started hanging up on incoming calls after only a few seconds.  I had had this problem with linphone a few months back.

Anyway, frustrated, I closed Twinkle and then deleted linphone on my system (pretty sure this was 3.6.1 from sourceforge).  I reinstalled linphone 3.6.0 from the VL testing repository and it has been working flawlessly all morning.  I loaded openvpn first, but doubt that makes any difference.  Your linphone has not hung up on any incoming calls, so far at least.  I will use it exclusively now and let you know of any problems.  I am home today and AT&T is my internet service.  I have a faster cable service (charter) at the office and we will see how that goes tomorrow.  I have not yet tried the conference phone gadget on linphone but will no doubt soon.  I am really pleased.

Thank you!

John

Without detracting from the foregoing, I do note that the "get messages" gadget on linphone is screwed up.  It won't delete messages.   Also, it still crashes on "enable self view."  And I still have to periodically change subscribe=1 to subscribe=0 in .linphoneric so it will load properly.  Still very functional. Calls well with clarity.  Conference call function works.
