WARNING: This is a Gambas 3.4.1 project now, although the Kde-Apps is not ready for that

- GamCat can create thumbnails for the following movie formats: .3GP, .MOV, .MP4, .FLV, .AVI, .MKV, .MPG, .VOB, .MPEG
- There can be sequences of thumbnails for each movie file (1-25 images). This has been done using ffmpeg

- The thumbnail's resolution can be set
- You can create custom playlist from the MP3 database
- You can play the playlist as .m3u file in external players
- It is possible to search for a song using a fragment of its lyrics
- FTP scan dialog has been fixed
- A powerful statistic tool which can:
* compare two volumes
* make deep analysis of a volume
* check the scanned HDD folders for changes


GamCat is avilable also in Polish language: special thanks to Gnomek for translation and ideas/wishes, and the countless testings.
GamCat is now available in German language, thanks to work of Andrea Ambrus!

The German translation is not complete.

Version 1.0.9:
- Contains bugfix script for wrong file and folder numbers (the first run is slower)
- Added options to copy general catalog informations to the clipboard (Catalog tab)
- Single save saves the lyrics, "Save" button moved to menu item (MP3 tab)
- The Statistic is now synchronized with volume tree on Catalog tab
- Other small bugfixes

 backup?

 
 by brserek on: Sep 15 2010
 
Score 50%

Since I switched off archive scanning GamCat started to work as it supposed to. However I've noticed, that if anything happens during adding a disc, the whole data base got corrupted without any chance to recover. So I have two suggestions. First - to block doing anything with application while scanning: no searching, renaming, etc. And second one - to create a backup file before adding (modifying) data base. For now I'm making a copy of GamCat file every time I'm adding a new disc - it's real pain.

Can you just describe the issue in details?
I've added a new CD, while I was searching for a file, and there were no errors.
Was this error happening on upgrade to v. 0.0.54, I mean during the first run?
Anyway I'll check the process of scanning once again!

So I'm scanning a new disc. Meantime I go to tab "Catalogs", doubleclick on any disc - it open a window "Change the volume's name" and whatever I try I can't close this window. I have to kill a thread, and when I restart GamCat it crashes with error message:

kbuildsycoca running...
mount: /dev/sr1 already mounted or /mnt/dvdrw busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sr1 is already mounted on /mnt/dvdrw
mkdir: nie można utworzyć katalogu `/home/dominik/.GamCat/thumbs/rFactor_Appendix_20': Plik istnieje
FMain.?.0: Query failed: SQL error or missing database
Mutex destroy failure: Urządzenie lub zasoby zajęte

It says: cannot create folder rFactor_Appendix_20 because the folder exists.
Removing this folder is not helping much. GamCat crashes with SQL error like above.

Well, I can start application and even search through the data base, but it crashes on scanning the same disc again.

It happens on 0.54 version. I installed Fedora 13 package from this site. I didn't really try earlier versions because of archives error.

I can confirm your bug report. I can even explain why it does happen: when I do exactly what you've told me, the program hangs upon volume renaming, and I have to break program manually. Next time the program starts correctly, but when I want to add the same disk (with the same name), it crashes. But if I try to scan the same disk with a different name,there are no errors. That's because the table for the certain disk has been created during the first round of scan, and it looks like that the input dialog stops the execution of the scan process, and on next scanning trial with the same name it crashes, since the program cannot create a table which already exist, yet which isn't in the table which contains all the tables. I'll have to disable such possibilities. Please write me if any other situation of crash occurs! I'll rule them out. I never did rename and scan at once, so I never ran into this. Thank you!

 listing entire catalog fails

I've encountered another error.
I just try to list entire catalog by clicking on "Catalog" button in "Search" tab. After a few seconds of listing GamCat crashes.
There's output from console:

$ GamCat
kbuildsycoca running...
Search.?.0: #21: Out of bounds
Mutex destroy failure: Urządzenie lub zasoby zajęte

It says in polish "device or resources busy". Well, more-less.
My catalog consists now of about 60 DVDs and weights 63 MB.

 Problem with tree view

Score 50%

Hi there, looks like I'm the only one having problems with GamCat :)
So I bought lately a new computer and installed GamCat 1.0.2 with Gambas 3. Now I can't see disc contents on tree view (first tab, active right after start). I can search through data, everything seems to work there, but on tree view all I can see is just discs with names.
And it's the same with GamCat 1.0.3.

Hello,
I need more details:
1. What kind of distro are you using?
2. Does the problem persist if you try to create a new database?
3. What if you delete the folder ~/.GamCat and restart the program?
4. Are you trying to use the old databases (prior version 1.0) with the new release? In that case it probably wouldn't work. You should rather go over former releases, which are containing the required
compatibility scripts.
5. Could you send me some screenshots to my email:
minthaka@freemail.hu ?

Thenks for a very fast response!
1. Fedora 17 64
2. If I create new database and add some disks, they're visble in tree view.
3. I don't understand this, it's like previous point.
4. I dont really know that, but judging by the creation time of last thumbnails, it must have been version from february 2012 or even older, so probably yes. And it was definitely Gambas 2 at this time.
5. Screenshots sent!

Can you provide the gambas3 version needed to compile it?
I have gambas 3.1.1 and looks like the " -x" flag passed to gbc3 by the make script , don't exist.


symbianflo@symbianflo ~/Scaricati/GamCat-1.0.3 $ make
Compiling GamCat project...
/usr/bin/gbc3: invalid option -- 'x'
Usage: gbc3 [options] [<project directory>]
-
Options:
-g --debug add debugging information
-v --verbose verbose output
-a --all compile all
-t --translate output translation files
-p --public-control form controls are public
-m --public-module module symbols are public by default
-s --swap swap endianness
-r --root <directory> gives the gambas installation directory
-V --version display version
-h --help display this help
-L --license display license
-e --translate-errors display translatable error messages

Thx in advance.

PS:
The 3.2 and 3.2.1 versions of gambas have the xml-component too buggy that's why I'm stick with 3.1.1.

It is currently built against the gambas3 version 3.2.0, using Kubuntu Precise as platform. There is already a 3.2.1 on Kubuntu, but I didn't upgraded yet.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
