Use the i386 Wheezy build instead.

That's basically where I am on Arch.  The 32-bit build works great, I haven't gotten the 64-bit build running yet, primarily due to libgnutls.

In arch there are these problems:

  libnettle.so.4 => not found
  libhogweed.so.2 => not found
  libgnutls-deb0.so.28 => not found

The last version of nettle in arch has libhogweed.so.4 and libnettle.so.6
The last version of gnutls in arch is libgnutls.so.30

I don't see an easy solution.
Like AD said, just use the 32 bit build. The reason for the AMD64 build is not because there's anything added by going to 64 bits, it's mainly because it reduces the packages you need to have when running on the supported (and very close) 64 bit distros.

The best distros for the AMD64 Jessie builds that I've found thus far is Debian Jessie and Ubuntu 15.04. With those two you just have to add the repository and install MC (and its dependencies automatically) from a Terminal and it works perfectly out-of-the-box. For everything else you'll probably have to use the i386 Wheezy build - especially Linux Mint 17.1 which is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Speaking of Debian Jessie, do you think I should write a new tutorial for setting up MC in Debian Jessie?

Okay, here's an observation. I've noticed the default video directory for MC is ~/Video but instead it should be ~/Videos as it's the existing default videos directory on Debian, Ubuntu, etc.

Yes I am using the i386 version, see
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/jriver-media-center/

But most people would like the amd64 version (not necessary to install all those lib32- libraries)
It would be nice to have this version on my AudioLinux distribution.

Done and done. :)
Thanks!

BTW, I'm playing with a build that has statically linked libgnutls, libgcrypt, libidn, libgpg-error, libnettle and libhogweed.
It's a pita but it will probably make it easier to get the amd64 build running on ubuntu and others.

Works on 32 bit so far. Still in process on 64. If that goes I'll probably do arm as well.

The install of 20.0.110 for Debian (Jessie) AMD64 went very smoothly and it runs well, but I am having a problem getting the files to be played at the same volume. I've worked through the library tools, DSP studio, options, etc. Suggestions, please.

Assistance, please.
Can I now record with this version of Media Centre through my sound card (from my preamplifier. as I have with other versions of MC?
I have a fair number of vinyl records which I wish to transfer to my computer.

If not, can anyone suggest a good program to do this?

Thank you,

No, that function is not supported in Linux.

Audacity is a free and feature rich way to record on linux.

Audacity is a great option, it is what I have been using for years for my vinyl "rips".  There are many tools built-in to help clean up your sources as well (pops, etc.)

Hovering over or clicking the DSP button to the right of the shuffle button doesn't do anything - the DSP/audio path window doesn't pop up at all.

Can you try a different skin?
Also, can you get at it from the Options menu?

I am running 20.0.123 in both Ubuntu 15.04 and Mint 17 and after doing a re-install I discovered something that is not working the way that it did previously.  In the standard view at the top of the main section (where the album art is displayed) there is a tab with the name of the view (Album, Artist, etc).  Previously, if you right clicked on this tab you got a drop down menu with a number of options.  That menu is no longer displayed when you right click, it now just says "Execute: (Name of view)".  I did use that menu..

The current build just uploaded should have these incorporated IIRC.

Only one info:

I installed MC 20.0-129 in:
Debian Jessie (AMD 64)

Virtualox VMs (5.00):

Debian Stretch (AMD 64) KDE
Debian Stretch (AMD 64) Cinnamon

In all versions of MC runs great

Only the mini-view is not running for ages

This build incorporates more libraries into MC to reduce dependencies when trying to get MC running on non-debian Jessie distros.

Exit MC.
Find your User Settings.ini file.
Make a backup of it.
Edit it
Find the line that starts:
Placement (Slim View)=b:....
Delete just that line.
Write it out.

Try MC again.

I can't reproduce this behavior since we "fixed" it.

I can open the file as read-only. Because the line length is more than 7000 characters ??. ? ?
Neither with Kate nor with kwrite. Even not as root

I have a trick used: I have mounted the directory in a VM, and edit the file with gedit. [??]
The first time does the Mini-View well. The second time -----> the same as before.
The line is also again present:
Code: [Select]
Placement (Slim View) = b: "LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACAAAABjAAAAkQcAALwEAAA \ ="

That line is what you'd expect to see in the Settings file after you remove the line and re-run MC.

Still not sure why you are getting the distorted mini-view.
Are you using multiple monitors?
The default gnome desktop I assume?

I replaced the User Settings.ini with 704 KIB from KDE Jessie with the Cinnamon file (in VM) with 13 KIB (mini-view works in good cinnamon)
In KDE happened the same as before: In the first attempt mini-view works well. The second test gives the result as before


edit:

I use KDE
I have 1 Monitor with Dual-DVI (HP-LP3065) - see Signatur

mini and standard view have the same string?

The latest build is up at:

20.0.131 (7/27/2015) ...

In case someone didn't notice this, the link is old. The correct link is of course:

Yes.
The larger settings file has a lot of nulls in it following one of the custom view fields.
This seems like a bug but I don't think it's affecting the reading of the mini-view settings.

I'm in the middle of making a change to the redraw code. When the next build is posted it will be interesting to see if it solves the issue for you.

I did a clean install of Ubuntu 15.04 x64 using my tutorial and man fonts are totally messed up by default - I made double sure xfonts-100dpi, xfonts-75dpi and unifont were all installed. And I rebooted several times.

I did a clean install of Ubuntu 15.04 x64 using my tutorial and man fonts are totally messed up by default - I made double sure xfonts-100dpi, xfonts-75dpi and unifont were all installed. And I rebooted several times.
What are your font settings in MC?

The default, changing to unifont or user defined doesn't make a difference.

I'd guess the fonts have changed or are missing.

Try xlsfonts from a terminal

xlsfonts

The actual font string being used is detailed here:

Weird, updating Mesa using the Oibaf PPA fixed it after a reboot. The fonts are now listed in xlsfonts.

Good find, though I don't know how that worked...

Yeah, I think it might be time for me to do some virtual machine testing...

Couldn't reproduce it in a virtual machine but I did notice something else that's strange on the main Ubuntu install. Without the updated Mesa (and the fonts were messed up) the issue with the "dead pixels" appearing in MC didn't occur, however after updating Mesa and getting the fonts to work the "dead pixels" issue is there. Maybe the issue with the "dead pixel" looking glitches is related to the fonts in some way?

Very strange.

Even more interesting, after purging the PPA and going back to stock Mesa MC's fonts work fine now. Maybe it's something only a clean MC install would fix? Very strange indeed and I might not be the only person who experienced this.

I don't really understand how a clean install of MC would fix it.
Maybe just select a different font then back to the default?
There does seem to be some magic however in how the xfonts-75dpi are integrated into a running system.
