Exaile N800 port webpage

I’ve whipped up a webpage for the Exaile N800 port. This has the latest packages, screenshots, todo list, etc.

I’ve also made a new release with the following changes:

  • Basic Hildon-ization: window, menus, full-screen support, file dialogs
  • Icon now appears in taskbar
  • Fixed default OSD background colour
  • Made track info in title bar briefer

Double-clicking the playlist items in the sidebar doesn’t work. This is due to this bug in maemo gtk. Vote for it if you want this fixed.

There is plenty still to be done. I don’t have stacks of time to work on it at the moment. Send me some encouragement and I may work a bit faster. :-)

  1. I’ve just found your weblog while looking for a Ogg player for Maemo in Google this morning. I’ll try to install your player this evening and let you know how it works for a “simple user”.

  2. Good job! But it won’t play my mp3 songs. An error window pops up, containing a line “[10:08:45] autoaudiosink”. When I launch it from a terminal, the screen output is the following. How do I fix this? Thanks!

  3. Oh, more report: when I try to play a song, the output in the terminal is:

    /usr/bin/exaile:2701: GtkWarning: gtk_widget_event: assertion `WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)’ failed
    Could not create sink gconfaudiosink. Trying autoaudiosink.

  4. Are you planning to support OS2008? Thanks for porting this great program.

  5. @crt
    Yes, I’m just waiting for the N800 version of OS2008 to be released. It should be just a matter of dropping a bunch of patches, due to the improvements/updates of gtk and gstreamer in OS2008. Hopefully some of the gtk bugs will go away as a result.

    mp3 playback works for me, but I haven’t had time to look into your problem in detail. It’s on my list… BTW, the output in your first comment is all normal, it’s the message in your second comment that is pertinent. Did you alter the audio sink in preferences? It should not be altered from the default value. I should remove the other options, really.
