Hi,

maybe you have to install Qt4 development files and development programs used for building Qt 4 application. Look at "libqt4-dev", "libqt4-sql", "libqt4-network", "libqt4-gui", ...

Great audio player, all the praise for your work.
Keep it up, go ahead.
If you can, it would be nice if the program can be minimized to system tray.
Of course the options to stop play and so on.
I have only one complaint, concerning the sources package.
It seems to me that the permissions and ownership status incorrect.
They need to be corrected.
Thank you for this wonderful program, so here's the link for Mandriva. RPM package:

I love it: "Only Linux is supported!"

Apologies for my English.

Hi, thanks for comment,
Ok for the next release, I whill try to make a systray. For the package I'm not sure to understand the problem....

Hi Sebastien,
In the meantime I tested the new version 0.0.28, I can say that it is almost perfect.
The program works completely well.
The only complaint about the new version is showing the status of the names of songs at the bottom of the window.
Thus, only half of the text is displayed at the bottom.
Regarding problems with the sources package, the permissions of files is 0755 instead of the 0644.
That's all for now.

Best regards

Hi, how does Yarock search for covers in the local db? I have in the albums folders an image called cover.png (jpg, gif, etc.) or the-name-of-the-ablbum.png, come people have folder.png or 1.png. But Yarock only shows me he covers for the files that have it in the tags.

Why are all the names for artist, album, etc. in lowercase?

Report

SebAmar

Hi,

Yes, for now, only cover from tag are taken into account. Not from file directory. I have done an automatic cover fetching from lastfm for the entire collection (I whill publish the new release soon).

For lowercase, you're right, it's not very clean. Lowercase conversion is hard coded to avoid multiple case analysis... I whill think about a better solution

Thanks for your comment

It's just a warning, you can do "make", "make install" after qmake

It's really a great app, i had tried almost every music player for linux and YaRock for me is the better option to have a clear, simple but beautiful designed music player. It's still have some bugs to cover so it would be great if you continue working on the project or maybe moving to launchpad repo would be better to keep track of changes. Keep te good work

Hello,
I'm trying to install this.
It is compiling, but when I type # make install it tells me that there is nothing to do.
What should I do in that situation?
