Fedora only has QT4 installed and I cannot build this. The ./configure output says:

Quote:Verifying Qt 3.x Multithreaded (MT) build environment ... fail
Unable to find Qt 'mkspecs'.

qt3 is not in the Fedora repos. I have qt4-devel and qt-devel installed.

Any suggestions?

It turns out that the Mandriva rpm works fine on Fedora - after about 5 minutes of testing.

I do have QT3 installed after all, but having two versions installed makes compiling problematic.

That's exactly what I was looking for.

I will help me be faster than editing tags with Konqueror & Amarok ;)

Keep up the good work.

Having a spot of build bother.
Perhaps you can tell me what I'm missing, or where I've gone wrong?
Thanks!

PS I do have all the qt/kde devel packages I could think of installed.

Dude, the answer is in the error :

"g++: -pg and -fomit-frame-pointer are incompatible"

And you have both in the previous line.

Don't know what distro you are running but if you can, disable the "pg" option (or maybe more simple, remove it from the makefile).

After running running configure, open src/Makefile and remove -pg from CXXFLAGS. Hope that helps! :-) I should take care of the for other people that use -fomit-pointers

Here is a Gentoo ebuild (I just updated a previous one, I've done nothing) : http://goondy.free.fr/gentoo/ebuilds/mediatagtools-0.3.2.ebuild

Here is an alternative ebuild.
This one contains a patch to enhance case functions : add a new choice (first letter of first word uppercase only) and now, only the fields that are checked at bottom left will be affected by case changes.
I've emailed the developper one week ago but as I did get any response, I post here:

I downloaded the debian package, and it installed fine, and ran fine. But when I open files to edit, the only tag fields I can edit are under the "Generic tag" tab; there are no "Lyrics" or "Picture" tabs as shown in the screenshot. I chose this tool over others just for the album art functionality, and because I'm familiar with the original Windows MP3 Tag Tools. As there's no documentation, I don't know what to think. Am I missing something to enable full functionality? Thanks!

The screenshot is really old. It shows one of the very early versions of mtt that still had the lyrics and picture tabs but they were disabled (that's why they appear greyed out). That functionality is still missing from mtt. I'll make sure to update the screenshot to a more recent one.

Thanks for reporting that. Unfortunately I cannot provide myself suse rpms so I'll have to remove the link until someone provides an appropriate rpm of mtt 0.3.1.

The link may be broken, but there are RPM packages fro V3.2 on the KDE-community repository. Also V3.1 on Guru.

I just downloaded the program and it looks great by the way. Thanks for the work.

I know this is a big ask, but any chance of expanding to video tags some time in the future?

Thanks for the info!
As for the request I'll think about it but don't expect something soon. It is a nice idea to include support for video file tags but it will have to wait for some time.

Hello.

I have two bugs (v.0.2, source):
1. If just after start you use "add files" to add few files at once, then the tag fields in the window bellow are not updated when you travel between files.
2. In format options "Move Up", etc are always greyed, so I can not use them.

And two wishes:
1. It would be better if you can delete files from the list.
2. Also autonumbering would be nice for track numbers.

Please try to report bugs in the bugzilla of berlios: http://developer.berlios.de/bugs/?group_id=5029
Both bugs are now fixed in 0.3. The two feature requests are noted and I'll see what I can do for the next release. Thank for your comments! :-)
