when adding volumes to the disk catalog, I get an error:

[21] Out of bounds.
FMain.?.0

the application closes immediately after the error msg is acknowledged. Restarting the application shows the volume was added to the catalog successfully.

suggestions?

Please try to re-add the questioned volume with no archive search.
It is likely some archive does the crash.
The guilty is upon the different kinds of character encoding used by Windows and Linux. I've encountered similar errors on my old volumes, which were made under Windows. Anyway, it won't do any harm to your database, just it wont list all the contents of an archive

All you offer to download is Debian package, Unace for Mandriva (this is very strange) and translation files. I would really like to try this application, but I'm Fedora user...

I suggest you to try the unace provided with the Fedora.I hope it will work for you. I've never tested GamCat on Fedora, only with Ubuntu, Debian and Mandriva, but hopefully you can use the Mandriva's or openSuse's version. I'm really curious about it's usability. Please post me your experiences, if you're willing!

I've tested GamCat on Fedora 12 LiveCD and it works. Still, this was a live version, and I had some troubles with font sizes.

Tried to install rpm, but there are unresolved dependency: gambas2-gb-db-sqlite2. I've found only gambas2-gb-db-sqlite3 in repositories, but it won't work.
I've just downloaded sources and will try to compile later.

Now package simply installs. But there's another problem. After starting it tells me to put in discs in drives to recognize them. And I've tried everything: CDs, DVDs, automounting, manual mounting, but nothing works.

Can you post me the content of your /etc/mtab file?

As I told you, I never tested it on Fedora.

A better idea:

see where are mounted your DVD and CD drives, e.g.
/dev/dvd
/dev/cd

or similar.

Create a config file inside your /home/your/.GamCat folder, and put the corresponding lines inside the config file, and save it. Restart GamCat

Wait until monday, I'll upload a zipped directory structure, with an empty database, so you'll be able to extract into your home folder, and to skip the installation's misery, oh beauties of Linux!

Please download the 'First aid kit',
extract to your home folder, and go into ~/.GamCat folder of your home folder.
There is a config.txt file in it.
Open it, and replace the lines with the ones you can find in /etc/mtab.
(you can do it as regular user with command:
kate /etc/mtab )
Search for lines similar to

/dev/sr1 /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,nosuid,nodev,utf8,user=minthaka 0 0

You only need the
/dev/sr1 part to be put into the config.txt.

Save the file, and start Gamcat.
hopefully that helps.

Sorry for not answering, but I'm very busy these days. I've just updated to version 0.45 and downloaded First Aid Kit. No time to do some testing, but program starts and I'm able to add discs to database.
I've got no /dev/sr0 or /dev/sr1 in my mtab. Those are actual devices, and disks are automounting, but no entries in mtab - to complicated for me :)
Thanks for help.

 Installing app - OpenSuse 11.2

 
 by neprosto on: Feb 18 2010
 
Score 50%

Screenshots and the description look nice, so I tried to install the app on OpenSuse 11.2. Gambas is provided by
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Education/openSUSE_11.2 and contains the package gambas2-gb-opengl, while the app requires gambas2-gb-qt-opengl. I suppose that they are the same thing but the app surely cannot recognize this. What should I do?

Also I can try to help with translation of the app into Russian if it will involve the work with text only and will not require any knowledge about Gambas programming.

I'm sorry, I've left some dependencies turned on after the development. They are not required at all. Please repeat the download and try it again. I've changed the files today, so they will work now for you. The translation is very easy. I've posted the translation file for Hungarian, and all you need is to replace the Hungarian terms, which are below the English original ones with Russian ones (please keep in mind the length of the text!), and to send me the file GamCat-ru-0.0.49.po, and in next release it will be available.

Please post me, whether it works on openSuse! I've never tried it on that distro.

 some notes

 
 by Maras on: May 23 2010

Hello.
First of all I want to thank you for this project. GamCat is first CD/DVD collection manager for linux that promises a lot of features.

Now about some flaws - maybee it helps you. Or maybee I am doing something incorrectly. My system - Debian Sid, version of GamCat - 0.0.5.1

Import from WhereIsIt XML is not working. I did export in WhereIsIt after that tutorial: http://getsatisfaction.com/obviousmatter/topics/import_where_is_it_dbs and tried importing all my collection or only one disk from my collection. Error was: "Query failed: SQL error or missing database. F.Main.?.0" and program disappeared. When I tried import XML that was generated by "Disk explorer professional" [only as try, I know, that it isn't supported], error was the same.
CdCat is only program in linux that managed to import the same WhereIsIt XML correctly for me.

Browsing in rar archives is incomplete. While from tar and zip archives program manages to read all filenames, from rar it reads only first word or only number of track, sometimes - nothing. Bad work of unrar (I have unrar and unrar-free installed)?

First of all, the WhereIsIt is an ATTEMPT, it isn't tested (I have no examples, I've done the import module based upon 1 or two exported databases in XML!) so I hope you've backuped your database before the attempt. It was planned to import database all at once.

For the RAR archives: GamCat utilizes the console line command:
unrar l "yourfile.rar"

Please try to check whether your unrar package gives back the content correctly in terminal. There are some difficulties with the Window - Linux passing over:
1. Character encoding. Maybe your system cannot recognize the correct characters.
2. Special characters and sqlite database. I think I'll check this part of the program. I've built in some basic character filtration to evade the program crash, so maybe some files are missing because of that.

Anyway, I'll try to fix it.
In new release there will be a new tab for MP3 files. I've already made download scripts for some lyric providers so it will be possible to store the lyrics together with the files.
Regards,
Csaba

Thank you for quick answer.

Oh yes, I backuped, but program crash didn't destroyed existing database.
I tried some tricks when exporting xml - minimized information as possible (1 disk with Western European characters in filenames only, only filenames in description - without flags, categories etc.). But program chrashed nonetheless.
Maybee this depends on WhereIsIt version? My is 3.84.

Checked "unrar l" and saw in terminal all the names of archived files with all diacritiks and cyrilic too.
The only problem was a file with double commas ["] - unrar didn't see it (GamCat see nothing inside this archive too). I added underscores [_] instead empty places in name and unrar recognized archive. But GamCat didn't see nothing in such archive. Only when I removed double commas from archive name program managed to see names of it content. But only track number and first word of name.
So, limitations isn't due unrar. And cyrilic names of archives and files haven't matter at all in my case.

Hope, this information will be usefull for you.

What are you thinking about tagging and other sorting of files, like WhereIsIt flags and categories? I understand, that your plans are not to be equivalent of WhereIsIt, but need for a powerfull catalogizer of various CD/DVD content is big in linux (catalogizers of movies, music or books exists already), so this is a niche for this program, I think. Search in hundreds of DVD is hard work :). So limitations of searching in archived files is big disatvantage, in my oppinion.

Best regards,
Valdemaras.

If I red you correctly, you'd like to see an option to add comments/categories to the file? For example if you'd click on a file, you'd have options 'Add comment' and 'Add category'
, and after that you'd be able to search for a file inside a category?

I've fixed some errors, so the next release is going to be more useful.

Please describe me, how it doesn't work:
1. Do you have installed gambas2-gb-db-sqlite package?
2. Do you have sqlite3 installed on your system?
3. GamCat reads /etc/mtab for the mounted devices, and no fstab.

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.
