This is a desktop metronome that is designed to just work.

It depends on SDL_mixer and you need CMake 2.4 to install it.

To install it just unpack the archive, `cd' into the folder and enter `cmake .', `make' and `install'.

By default it installs to `/usr/local'. You can change that by giving `cmake .' this parameter: `-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path'.


============ Destick 0.3 ============

Switched away from aKode to SDL_mixer for soundoutput which guarantees more precision.
Added a visualization in which the beat is shown with a sinus cruve.
Made some thins work more "natural".

=========== Destick 0.2.1 ===========

Made the behaviour for setting the BPM manually more clear (I hope).

============ Destick 0.2 ============

After the huge amount of comments (0) and downloads (29) I decided that if the interesst into a good metronome is that big I should implement some new features :D

0.2 has the same clean interface as 0.1 but the user can specify the BPM by clicking into the text edit box. The feature is explained when starting the program the first time with a nice litte info-bubble.

Alsofixed some bugs which caused the application to crash and some cmake realated problems.

Stay tuned for some more breath-taking features.

Hey this is great. I was just saying I needed to get a basic metronome and now my PC is one! What were the instructions for manually setting the bpm again? Great work!

Jost click into the textbox where you enter the beat with the middle button repeatedly with the speed you want the metronome to be. Just like you would clap to the beat...

 Some issues

What's the point of limiting the BPM to 200? For example Master of Puppets is played at 220... there is no point in limiting the BPM so much. I think in Gtick you can select the maximun and the minimun BPM you want.

Also, the way to set manually the BPM is not very intuitive, and if the program is playing, the speed doesn't update until you hit enter. And again, if you click at more than 200bpm and hit enter, the program starts to play at 200 but the display shows that it's playing at the speed you have set. IIRC in Gtick there is a "tap" button making it more intuitive.

Also, in Gtick it's more confortable to set the beat and the accent with less clicks (checkboxes instead of dropdown menus)

I'm sorry If I seem to be advertising Gtick :P I was just thinking about what I don't like in destick and realized that Gtick does it right (for me)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
