Multimedia Bonus Disc RC 2.6 is Released!!!

This is now "SOHO compatible." We have a new installer and a quite a few little things fixed and upgraded. I especially need people to test the installer and tell me how well it works. More information about the disc and what is included on it can be found at my site: http://dweeberkitty.110mb.com Also you can find a Quick Start Guide here: http://dweeberkitty.110mb.com/install.pdf

The ISO can be downloaded here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/Uelsk8s/iso-test/MultimediaBonusDisc-RC2.6.iso

This is the installer which will let you choose your installation method. A full install requires about 1.2GB



Here is MMBD being installed:



And when it is finally done, you get a Multimedia menu packed with some of the best Multimedia software for Linux that I could find. Also you get some new additions to your Graphics menu.



Here is a little bit more detailed changelog:

OK - have downloaded and burnt it to a disk, unable to just click on the icon to install, this just opens it up in abiword and I get....

#!/bin/sh

cd $(find /mnt /media -name "MMBD_Data")

vsuper sh install.sh

Which I think shows one problem the file is Install.sh

So opening up a terminal and su I run it... here is the output.

root:# sh Install.sh
/bin/sh
sh install.sh
Overwrite Mode (Overwrites all packages)
: command not found
'h: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `{
'h: line 3: `config() {
: command not found
'h: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `{
'h: line 3: `config() {
Yes chosen.


When I click on the menu the menu button vanishes... will reboot and see if that makes a difference.

Also seems to have upset the KDE log on.... Reverted to a very basic KDE log on screen.  Also any splash sceen is taken to a stock KDE splash screen.  If I try to set this to the new Vector 5.9 splash etc I get a Moodin module not installed...   Now I could downgrade all the KDE stuff and this might reset things but I suspect I would then lose some of the aps as they would be built against a later KDE library?

Yes I think you can downgrade as I didn't really build any packages against the newer kde packages. The problem comes from the kde 3.5.9 packages that I was given, apparently they mess things up on a standard install. However, the programs should all still work. As far as the Install.sh, you are supposed to run that script just like you did "sh Install.sh" it in turn runs the script in MMBD_Data/install.sh. This was meant to fix a problem in SOHO, you can though, just run (as root) the install.sh script inside of the data folder.

Okay, what I think I will do is not have an upgraded KDE on the disc, just the same version as what's on Standard already. Not sure about the icon for the menu, (did it really mess that up?). The next version should have this problem fixed though. Thanks for testing!

Much to my surprise the program launcher disappeared,  so I added a new one, no biggie, but it would be nice to have the vector button there rather than the stock XFCE one.   Pleased to do something of value for Vector, and I appreciate all your effort in putting together an amazing bonus disk!  So much great stuff that I have absolutely no idea how to use... but I can have fun playing.....

The reason the icon won't launch the installer appears to be that Install.sh isn't executable.  It appears to be a permissions issue.  Pretty simple fix.

At the end the installer asks you to check out the Multimedia menu.  Make that Mutimedia & Graphics as some nice graphics apps get installed too Smiley

A couple of suggestions for future releases:

1.  Since MMBD does include non-Open software (i.e.: XaraLX) how about including Lightscribe CD labeling software?  I have both the HP and LaCie programs installed on my system.  Both seem to work OK with the latest HP driver.

2.  Since tetex gets installed (is this really necessary?Huh) then should some GUI DTP software to work with tetex (i.e.: Lyx) be included?  Not really MM, I know.

I don't even know what all the apps do yet.  I see i have some new toys to play with Smiley

Tetex is used for some musical notation editors to write the score. I think Noteedit is included in the mmbd.

Actually lilypond uses tetex and noteedit uses lilypond.

Possibly.....but that's almost something that most people would download only IF they had that sort of device. I'll look into it though.

When MMBD 1.0 comes out, I will be selling a hard copy with a printed manual that will get you up and running, including explaining what each program does and what to use it for. Stay tuned!  Wink

OK... if there is already a package like this put it down to my ignorance, but... How about a more capable CD ripper?  grip, for example, is faster than ripperX and is far more configurable.

You know...I looked at grip, but I had decided not to include it because it requires a bunch of gnome packages. Unless there is some killer multimedia app that has to have gnome, I'd rather not mess with it. Thanks for the suggestion anyway. I'm having a hard time finding new packages...there's so many I've already done  Wink

How about PiTiVi. This looks pretty interesting. I started try and make a package myself but I just can't seem to get back to it.

And how about an ffmpeg package with 3gp support for cell phone videos.
Here is an Unbuntu forum thread on making 3gp videos play (I haven't read it)

And here is a link to a bloggers post about how to enable 3gp support in ffmpeg
I did read this and was going to try it but I haven't been able to open it since. Also I don't have a cell phone that can take videos so I kinda lost interest. However at least two people have asked about cell phone videos in the forum recently so it might be useful.

Other than that I can't see anything you have not done!

When I first started this project, I tried to build PiTiVi but it wouldn't compile for me. I'll try it again and see if it will work now.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm working on it now.  Smiley

Hmmm...Apparently the 3gp codec is a Nokia non-free codec. Unfortunately I cannot legally distribute it if I enable it or add it into ffmpeg. Sorry InTheWoods!  Cry
