I have been running MC 19 in Ubuntu.  I followed the instructions in this post for MC 20.  It looks like it downloaded and installed, but I can still only launch MC 19 from that installation.  Where do I look to find MC 20 and get an icon for it on my launch bar?
If you have both installed, then this will prove it:
robert@robert-nas:~/scripts$ ls -l /usr/bin | grep mediacenter
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    20987764 Aug  6  2014 mediacenter19
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    20089684 Feb 20 21:56 mediacenter20

And if you want to run version 20, then this will do it:
/usr/bin/mediacenter20

also see the very first post:

Thank you for your suggestions.  That brought up Media Center 20.  I was looking for the icon in the applications section and could not find it.  Would it show up if I deleted Media Center 19?

In this case, I'd recommend making a backup of your MC19 settings somewhere you can find them (like the desktop), then completely remove Media Center 19 via the Terminal. For good measure, it'd probably be a good idea to reinstall MC20 then.

Thank you for your suggestions.

I did get MC 20 to run from a command, but it locks up shortly afterwards.

What are the commands to use to uninstall software?  I think I should remove both versions and then do a clean install of MC 20.

What is Synaptic?

Okay, let's make it as simple as possible for you. Just put the following into the Terminal;

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove mediacenter19
That should remove Media Center 19. Remember to backup your library + settings first!

EDIT: Added tutorial for removing Media Center 19 and Media Center 20 to the first page.

I found Synaptic and it looks fairly straight forward.

How does one back up settings?

I need to go to a meeting for a few hours, then I'll resume with MC.

Yes, hope it works out for you (it should). :)

Also, I've added the APT repository tutorial for those who want to add it.

I was able to uninstall MC 19 and MC 20.  I then used your commands to download the latest version and the install went like clockwork.  I saw the icon in the applications section and the MC 20 will launch.

The only command that did not work was the one to install the license key.  I did receive the .mjr file, but the system tells me it could not restore the license from that file.  I checked the file and made sure I entered it correctly but no success.

Thank you for your support.  You have been very helpful.

I just tried the code I have for registration on the Help Menu in MC, and I received a registration completed message.  I checked the registration information and it shows a registered product, not a 30 day expiration.  It did not show it registered to my name.  I guess it won't expire.  I'm ready to test drive it and see how it works.

I have installed and tried both MC 20.0.70 and MC 20.0.74.  Both versions will not run much more that 15 to 20 minutes without crashing, frequently it will crash even sooner.  Either version plays really great when it works, but with the continuous crashing, it's not usable.

Isn't there a way to capture a log from MC that could be sent in to help resolve the problem?

Turn on logging under help. The log is in the users home directory under
.jriver/Media Center 20/Log.txt

On my system it never crashes so I suspect you have an issue with the distro and architecture you are using or perhaps a hardware issue.

The distro supported by JRiver is Debian Wheezy i386.

Thank you for your help.  Can I attach a log in a forum message?  I have been running MC 19 for over  months with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and it only recently was giving me trouble over about the last month or so.

If you zip the file you should be able to attach the log.

I'm suspicious about your description of the problem. It sounds like a hardware error to me. I'd start with a memory test.

I have been thinking the old computer may be giving up.  It is 9 1/2 years old and I did replace a power supply along the way.  Is there a memory test function in Ubuntu? 
My next thought is to try it on another computer.

I'd recommend grabbing the MemTest86 ISO, burning it to a CD then booting from the CD to use MemTest86.

I tried to load MC 20 on my laptop (also running Ubuntu 14.04) and it will not properly load.  The icon does not appear in my applications section, so I launch it with the mediacenter20 command in Terminal.  The following comes up in the Terminal screen:

Does this mean MC 20 is incompatible with Ubuntu?  When MC 20 did come up, Clicking on buttons and objects did not work properly.  You had to point above the object you wanted to click on.

About a year ago, I had MC 19 running on this same laptop.  I believe that was Ubuntu 13.

MC is compiled only on debian wheezy i386. Ubuntu is based on debian but is not exactly the same. I've seen that behavior on one ubuntu system, once you move the window it's fine. Don't know what the deal is. Try moving it with alt-left click and everything should sort itself out.

I've not seen that behaviour on my systems. Do you have all dependencies satisfied? According to the Google search I did, you can try these in a Terminal;

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines:i386
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-*:i386
sudo apt-get install libgtkmm-2.4-1c2:i386
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module:i386

That error is from missing the gtk2-engines-murrine and/or gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 package.

I think I'll add getting custom skins working on Ubuntu to the tutorial next.

Canonical upgraded the X.Org display server and client to Utopic Unicorn with Ubuntu 14.04.2 64 bit LTS GNU/Linux. Sudo apt-get -f install does not fix these broken packages because I've already tried it. I also tried Synaptic's fix broken packages and it does not fix the problem. I think that J River has to test this on a QA platform and fix their installation instructions so Media Center will completely install and work properly. Please look into this issue for me. Thank you.

Ubuntu technically isn't supported by JRiver, the supported distro = Debian wheezy i386. These instructions are written by forum members not by JRiver.
What happens if you try to install mediacenter by itself, have you tried this via the apt repository?

I added the GnuPG signing key for JRiver and I successfully installed Media Center 20, but it doesn't work. When I try to select my Oppo Digital HA-1, it isn't listed. I have not tested to see if it will play audio or music yet. Give me a few more hours to figure this out from this point and I'll update this thread.

I'll try to get a VM of 14.04.2 running in the next few days to test this out. I can tell you however that it works just fine in a fresh 14.10 installation.

Assuming your Oppo device is a DAC, if the hardware devices aren't listed your user usually isn't in the audio group.

Turn on logging under help. The log is in the users home directory under
.jriver/Media Center 20/Log.txt

On my system it never crashes so I suspect you have an issue with the distro and architecture you are using or perhaps a hardware issue.

The distro supported by JRiver is Debian Wheezy i386.


I did get MC 20 installed on my laptop as a check against my old tower that kept crashing.  I still have the crash problem with the laptop.  I did capture a log from the last crash that I attached to this post.  I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and I loaded the gtk files suggested by Awesome Donkey on a post done yesterday.

 Please let me know if it sheds any light on why MC crashes.

When I run MC 20 GNU/Linux, it freezes and I have to quit the program. I'll look into this issue more closely in the next few days to see what's going on in detail. I'll learn how to turn on logs and upload them, but what do I need to know to do this?

Open the Help menu.  There is an option for logging.  Click that and then click on the option to turn on logging.  Run the program until the problem happens again, then reopen it, Click on logging from the Help menu, then on the box to Report Problem.  That should put a log file on your desktop that you can attach to a post for review.

I can confirm the package breakage on 14.04.2 LTS. Looking into a solution now.

EDIT: The breakage occurs because of the libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 package. I'm going to remove it for the time being from the list, as MC20 seems to install and function completely fine without it (no errors or warnings).

That's the same exact package that broke my Codeweavers' CrossOver for Ubuntu 64 bit GNU/Linux software application.

http://www.codeweavers.com

After I performed a clean installation of Ubuntu 14.04.2 64 bit LTS GNU/Linux, CrossOver and Media Center refused to install completely. I created a support ticket with Codweavers and they're investigating this specific software package and its missing dependencies on their QA test system. They'll get back to me when they know more information.

Now, I'm running into the same missing software dependencies with Media Center 20.

There's a couple of Launchpad bug reports about this specific software package and its missing dependencies, but I have to Google it to get more specific information for you and Codeweavers.

Unfortunately, I've been permanently banned at Ubuntu Forums, but I did request to have my account re-enabled. I have to wait for Elfy the administrator at Ubuntu Forums to decide to let me back into the community or not.

An update, you should be able to install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic:i386 and it *should* work. This breakage is also affecting Steam it seems. I added a note for this on the first page.

If you zip the file you should be able to attach the log.

I'm suspicious about your description of the problem. It sounds like a hardware error to me. I'd start with a memory test.


I just got a second log from my old tower computer that was about 825 KB, too big to send.  Is there an alternate way to send, or should I attempt to re create the problem with a smaller file? I ran for a couple of hours playing FLAC (all my files are FLAC) at 44/16.  When I went to 192/24, it crashed as soon as I attempted to change tracks.

Remove libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 from your list. It should work fine then. The first page has an updated Terminal command without libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 included by default.

Now, I have to test J River Media Center 20 64 bit. I'll do this later tonight or tomorrow. I didn't get any sleep last night because I was busy.

There ya go, enjoy! :) You should try running mediacenter20 from the Terminal first to see if you get any errors there. If there's no errors, run it normally.

JRiver Media Center 20 64 bit GNU/Linux seems to be working right now. I'm playing Diana Krall's Quiet Nights FLAC music album at 16 bits 44.1 kHz. It has not crashed yet. However, I still can not select my Oppo Digital HA-1 DAC and headphone amplifier in the Tools -> Options -> Audio Device. I have to use the sound icon in Ubuntu Unity to select my Oppo Digital HA-1 in order to route music playback through JRiver Media Center 20 64 bit GNU/Linux. How do I fix this?

Here's my audiophile headphone system:
Oppo Digital HA-1 DAC & headphone amplifier
CEntrance HiFi-M8 LX XL4 portable DAC & headphone amplifier
Sennheiser HD-800
Shure SE-846 CL quad driver earphones

$4,400.00 USD

The sound quality sounds no different from DeadBeef, Clementine, etc. Right now, JRiver Media Center 20 64 bit GNU/Linux seems to be a bit buggy. It's nowhere near the Microsoft Windows 8.1 build. I understand that video and picture playback are not currently supported in the early GNU/Linux build, correct? What else do I need to know?

I may purchase this software product for my birthday next month. It seems to be a good investment and I strongly prefer JRiver Media Center for its advanced unique features and capabilities. The price is affordable.

Okay...

However, I still can not select my Oppo Digital HA-1 DAC and headphone amplifier in the Tools -> Options -> Audio Device. I have to use the sound icon in Ubuntu Unity to select my Oppo Digital HA-1 in order to route music playback through JRiver Media Center 20 64 bit GNU/Linux. How do I fix this?

There's several things you can try here. First, open a Terminal and input the following for alsacap then post the results here;

Code: [Select]
/usr/lib/jriver/Media\ Center\ 20/alsacap
Second, you can try going through every device listed under Tools -> Options -> Audio Device until you find the correct one for your Oppo.

The sound quality sounds no different from DeadBeef, Clementine, etc.

And that's a bad thing? :P Sound in MC is of the highest quality available in Linux (ALSA/PulseAudio).

Right now, JRiver Media Center 20 64 bit GNU/Linux seems to be a bit buggy.

It can be at times, but as anything it's a work-in-progress. I find it's pretty stable for me, but then again I use it as audio only (for now).

It's nowhere near the Microsoft Windows 8.1 build.

Nope, Linux is a completely different beast compared to Windows (or Mac) which required a lot of work porting from Windows to Linux and Mac.

I understand that video and picture playback are not currently supported in the early GNU/Linux build, correct?

Video support has been added, but keep in mind it doesn't work the same as the Windows version so there may be functionality missing (e.g. theater view). Again, another work-in-progress. I believe they're working on image support, not sure though. I also think they're working on theater view for Linux and Mac.

What else do I need to know?

Best advice is to keep track of the changelogs for new builds as they come. They add new features at random.

Turn on logging under help. The log is in the users home directory under
.jriver/Media Center 20/Log.txt

On my system it never crashes so I suspect you have an issue with the distro and architecture you are using or perhaps a hardware issue.

The distro supported by JRiver is Debian Wheezy i386.


I sent you a log from my laptop earlier today.

I was able to get 2 logs off my old tower computer.  My experience today was that it could play for a couple of hours running some FLAC files at 44/16.  When I loaded a 192/24 file, it started to play, then crashed when I attempted to switch tracks.  The second time I attempted to reload the 192/24 file, it crashed again.  It's now running a 44/16 file and running fine.

Please let me know anything you can gain from these logs.

I wanted to install a multi room audio system and wanted to give JRiver a try.
I have succeeded to install JRiver 20.0.74  on an old PC (Q6600 / 4G Ram 128 GB SSD) with two sound cards (one Intel HDA and one Xonar ST/H6 ) on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS 64-bit without to much problems
I created a permanent mounted network connections to my music servers (one Ubuntu 14.04 and one Windows 7) and created three libraries (one on the local disk and the others on the mounted network drives (which actually shouldn't make any difference) and al that went fine too.
Was able to create 10 zones (3 stereo + 2 mono zones on Xonar + 3 stereo + 2 mono zones on the Intel)
Everything seems to work as expected I can link zones within and across the two sound cards and all that seems to work as well.
Even streaming to my PS-Audio DirectStream DAC seems to work (With the exception of the DSD format I still have to look into that), and even the rubbish Onkyo TX-NR717 (they all seem somehow to die just after the warranty expires) it seem to work flawlessly.
For the time being there are I seem sometimes to lose the playlists I created with my internet radio URL's (By the way you cannot copy/paste into the "File/Open URL/Open Streaming File" Drop down field which is very unfortunate. Luckily it keeps the old entries in the drop down list).
And there are the random crashes of MC20. It sometimes just disappears. By the way it would be nice, to be able to have the (huge) log files on a configurable path (as my SSD is only 128GB) so that I can write it on the HDD (on which he local music files are stored too)
I do not know if enabling the log file would be helpful I will give it a try.
Taking into account that this is an under development system its fairly stable I must say (I have seen much worse in my 35 Years as system software developer.
And also, I know, it should be on a Debian Wheezy 32-bit distro and not on a Ubuntu 64 bit, but the Ubuntu is the most widely use distro by far so for commercial reasons (as this is a paid for package) it would preferable if it would also be fully supported on Ubuntu.

Your output device in the MC audio configuration is???
If I understand your question, MC configuration was set using the toolbar as follows: Tools>Options>Media Network>Add or configure DLNA Servers.  The settings on that screen are:

Audiophile 24-bit DAC
Mode: Specified output format
Format:  PCM 24 Bit
Under Advanced, Stereo downmix  is checked.
Sample Rate:  Same as Source

The window from DSP studio has no output encoding and Channels shows Source number of channels.

The output is going over my network to a JRiver id.  On the id, the only change was to set the output to USB.  It has a power supply, Cat 6 network cable, and a USB that connects to a PS Audio DirectStream DAC.

I just received the id on Feb 20.  Is the software on it registered before shipping, or do I need to do that?  I did not receive a code, so I assumed it was registered.

I neglected to mention on my last post that I am running MC 20.0.70.  As I am posting, I have a 96/24 FLAC file running and it plays fine, just as well as a 44/16.

Greetings Percy.

I also have a PS Audio DirectStream DAC.  It's a really great DAC, and will be even better when they perfect the Bridge.  I've been waiting for 4 1/2 years. 
I am also experiencing MC 20 crashes, and have sent some logs.  I would encourage you to also send logs as it could help them make improvements.
Mine runs with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Actually I was asking about the settings in MC where the audio output device is connected, in this case, the Id.

If the Id is your only or primary output device I would change the DLNA server settings to use original format. With very few exceptions, the Id can play anything that the MC server PC can play. The output format settings are designed to deal with the usual DLNA devices that play a small fraction of the formats supported by the Id.
If there are limitations with the output device on the Id as far as sample rates and number of channels are concerned you should use the DSP settings on the Id to handle that.
