Ubuntu-audio-tweaks in python

Postby Sandsound » Sun Feb 08, 2009 11:24 am

Hi all

I have been trying to learn a little about Python/Glade and in the process hoping to make some neat apps to make life a little easy for the new Linuxmusician.
I use Ubuntu myself, so these apps will primarily focus that distro, but I hope to make them more universal along the way as I learn more about the language .

Ideas and suggestions are more than welcome

This is how it looks so far :

nice effort :)
but what do you mean by "Remove PulseAudio" ? do you mean "disable" or "remove the PA installation from my PC" ? what if you just want to disable but not remove ?

about wineasio, do you mean to install the packaged version or the most recent but source version only ?

In general, do you plan on interacting with the apt world through this GUI ?

Thanks :-)

It removes Pulseaudio completely and install ALSA as default, maybe I should make a "Re-install Pulseaudio" button also ?

The wineasio is a precompiled 0.7.4 version it downloads from my site, the asio header from Steinberg makes it almost impossible to distribute a complete source. I will try to keep the version updated myself and also add a 64bit version later.

I use apt to install some dependencies, but other than that, i just use wget to install things from my site that isnt in any repositories.

btw. I have a early beta version here : http://www.sandgreen.dk/xt2/files/ubuntu-audio-tweaks.tar.gz

I like where this is going, but it might be a good idea to merge it with "Ubuntu Studio Controls" because they have similar goals. I think this will help a lot of non-geeky musicians warm up to Linux Audio in Ubuntu.

Sounds like a great idea, but... this being my second Python program, I'm not sure how to approach this, after all... I wrote my first "hello world" program for just about a week ago :-)

I actually thought about using some of the code from "Ubuntu Studio Controls" and it would be simple to merge the two programs.

btw. I have just added a "download, compile and install" button for libaam.so for those who use EnergyXT2.

this is a great idea! good work, look forward to seeing how this develops.

for the pulseAudio thing you could have a button that disabled pulseAudio just for that session, so it would just execute the "killall -- pulseaudio" command (not sure if that syntax is correct).

:)

i'm especially impressed that you did this one week after doing your first "hello world" program.

I have made some changes and included your idea, this is what you get when you click the "Remove Pulseaudio" button :

Hi all

I have made a new version (0.0.4) if anyone is interested.

Should be relatively bug-free :)

I have made some real progress on the limits.conf editor.

I am going to try out your program and will let you know how it goes. What was removed in version 0.0.5? Are you still developing the CSS editor?

Thanks :-) any feedback/ideas is more than welcome.

Both programs are still under development, I haven't removed anything in 0.0.5 but when I started the project I tested a lot of modules and forgot to delete the reference to the unused modules :oops:

btw. I'll have a new version of the CSS editor ready sometime tomorrow, is there anything particular you would like to see in it ?
