Is anyone using qLoud - or know a better Speaker profiler?

Postby Plug&Play » Tue Mar 19, 2019 3:28 am

I am found a speaker analyser, but it seems to be out of date, and I am having trouble building it, partly because I don't know anything about qt4 and qt5, if I have them or where to get them.
The latest is "v.1.2 - make building more friendly for Ubuntu "
at https://www.linux-apps.com/p/1130986/

Mostly I want to know if anyone is using it, or knows a more up-to-date alternative.

Thanks!

Rob

Thanks!

The website mentions development moved to https://github.com/molke-productions/qloud - that seems to have some more recent changes than compared to 1.2.

If you have any trouble installing that I'd be happy to help improve the docs.

Looks pretty cool, shame it isn't open source. Any open alternatives beyond qloud?

Thank you Lilith, raboof...

I will check these out.

It seems like such a basic tool, and all the components (signal generation , routing, analysis of digital wave forms) all readily available in Linux...

Just downloaded the zip and want to built it, but the question is how. I have now these files:

Code: Select all

~/src/qloud/qloud-master$ ll
total 68
drwxr-xr-x 2 marco marco  4096 Sep 16  2018 bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 marco marco 18009 Sep 16  2018 COPYING
-rw-r--r-- 1 marco marco   676 Sep 16  2018 INSTALL.md
-rw-r--r-- 1 marco marco 18092 Sep 16  2018 LICENSE
drwxr-xr-x 2 marco marco  4096 Sep 16  2018 moc
drwxr-xr-x 2 marco marco  4096 Sep 16  2018 obj
-rw-r--r-- 1 marco marco    71 Sep 16  2018 qloud.pro
-rw-r--r-- 1 marco marco  1914 Sep 16  2018 README.md
drwxr-xr-x 2 marco marco  4096 Sep 16  2018 src


and under installation there's written

look in src/src.pro to modify include dirs if you want,
run
qmake
make


I also don't have qmake, only qt5make (?). Can you give a sort explanation what to do to build it?

Further:
Change -lqwt to -lqwt-qt5 in src/src.pro.
the file does not exist before building it, right?

Not sure what distro you are on, but on Debian:

Code: Select all

$ apt-file search bin/qmake
gridengine-client: /usr/bin/qmake_sge
qt4-qmake: /usr/bin/qmake-qt4
qt4-qmake: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qmake
qt4-qmake: /usr/share/qt4/bin/qmake
qt5-qmake: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/qmake
qt5-qmake-bin: /usr/lib/qt5/bin/qmake
qtchooser: /usr/bin/qmake

Looks like you might want to install 'qtchooser' to put the 'right' qmake on your path?

Not sure about the zip, but in the github repo it seems to be right there: https://github.com/molke-productions/ql ... rc/src.pro

I'm on Debian 9 and get this:

Code: Select all

apt-file search bin/qmake
gridengine-client: /usr/bin/qmake_sge
qt4-qmake: /usr/bin/qmake-qt4
qt4-qmake: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qmake
qt4-qmake: /usr/share/qt4/bin/qmake
qt5-qmake: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/qmake
qtchooser: /usr/bin/qmake
