Okay, since it's mentioned I'm wondering how we can reduce the overall unifont size?

If you can find a smaller one you can use it in the user defined font string.
If the spacing between lines is too large you can trim it with that trim parameter.

The good news: my view Multiple Artists view issue is resolved in this build. You were right, thanks a million.

The bad news: still getting segfaults on exit with the new build.

Try testing it with Media Network disabled.
Perhaps you could add your distro / architecture info to your signature so I don't have to go searching for it each time?
I've not had a segfault on the supported distribution in the last 2 builds.

Out of curiosity, apart from the deb files in
Code: [Select]
http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/ folder, is there a "changelog.txt" or similar in the same location that contains the version changes? thanks.

Whatever you guys did between 31-1 and 33, you fixed the segfault failure on video stop!  Or else my recent upgrade to openSUSE TumbleWeed fixed it (Mesa was updated, fwiw).

Either way, tested with many videos, start/stop, etc. no segfaults.

Try testing it with Media Network disabled.

Media Network was already disabled unfortunately.  I was using the machine as a library client, though, so I tried switching to a local library, but I am still getting segfaults on close.  Let me know if I can do anything else for testing.

Sorry Bob, that was thoughtless of me; I'm on Arch-64 with Gnome, and I'll add it to my signature.

If you add the Run Auto-Import Now icon to the top toolbar, it displays the wrong icon (camera icon instead of the magnifying glass icon).

I think this affects the windows builds too.  I have DSP studio on my top toolbar, and on both Linux and Windows I'm seeing a checkbox icon instead of the normal fader bars.   I was actually wondering if the icon theme had changed or something.

You're right, it now affects the Windows build too with the release of 20.0.35.

My segfaults on closing MC in Arch-64 with Gnome stopped entirely after a recent system upgrade.  Looking through the logs and rolling back some packages, it seems like a recent point release for a bunch of gnome stuff (gvfs, gtk3, gnome-desktop, etc.) and some related gnome-dependencies resolved it.  If I roll back the gnome upgrades, the segfault returns, and I just tested in XFCE4 on another box and it doesn't exhibit any problems.

So it looks like it may well have been Gnome's fault, and is now resolved.  I can provide versioning info if that would be of any help. It's not clear which version of Gnome 3.14/GTK3 will wind up in Debian Jessie, so it may be relevant in the future?  Anyway, just wanted to report in.

I've been using 20.0.3x on Debian Jessie 64 for a while now.  It's been working great.  Today I installed 20.0.33 and successfully installed my license key.

Thanks!

Yes please, that could be helpful.

Here's the log of the update that fixed the issue on  my system (Arch 64 with Gnome).  I was getting segfaults on close prior to this update, afterwards no more segfaults. You can see each package's previous version and new version in parentheses on the far right:

Code: [Select]
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded efibootmgr (0.8.0-1 -> 0.11.0-1)

[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded gnome-control-center (3.14.1-2 -> 3.14.2-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded gnome-disk-utility (3.12.1-2 -> 3.14.0-1)

[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded mutter (3.14.1.5-1 -> 3.14.2-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded gnome-shell (3.14.1.5-1 -> 3.14.2-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded gnome-shell-extensions (3.14.1-1 -> 3.14.2-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded hwids (20140602-1 -> 20141030-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded libaio (0.3.109-7 -> 0.3.110-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded libpng (1.6.13-1 -> 1.6.14-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded libcups (2.0.0-2 -> 2.0.0-3)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded libjpeg-turbo (1.3.1-1 -> 1.3.1-2)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded pinentry (0.8.3-1 -> 0.8.4-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded procps-ng (3.3.9-3 -> 3.3.10-1)
[2014-11-12 18:35] [PACMAN] upgraded usbutils (007-1 -> 008-1)

Rolling back the upgrade brought back the segfaults; 3/4 of these packages are stuck in a web of mutual dependencies (with gnome-shell and company being the main offenders) so most of them can't be rolled back without rolling back 10 other packages.  There was also a GTK3 update and a systemd update a few days before, but those updates didn't seem to make any difference by themselves.

Thanks!

Just a check question (apologies for being off topic), I hope you're not burning a licence restore every time you upgrade.

You should only need to install the new package over the top of the last. The licence should carry across without hassle.
