* libkmidbackend has some new methods, soversion bumped to 1.0.0
* New and updated translations
* Assigned default shortcuts to keyboard media keys

Thanks. A user was "complaining" about this missing from KDE 4 to us.

So thus, this is now media-sound/kmid-0.1.0 in Gentoo's Portage.

This error message means that KMid2's ALSA backend (kmid_alsa.so) was not found at runtime, or does not work. Probably it was not built because the ALSA library development files weren't installed before compiling. In Debian, the required package is libasound2-dev.

The configuration looks OK, but you should confirm the contents of the $KDEDIRS environment variable, with:


$ echo $KDEDIRS


If it is not set (empty), you can do this:


$ export KDEDIRS=`kde4-config --prefix`


and run cmake again. Finally, run make & make install. After installing, run kmid2 from the terminal, and look for more error messages.

Thanks for your screenshot. I suspect that the problem may be related to TiMidity, so perhaps you could try FluidSynth/QSynth, and maybe you can test the synth with other programs, for instance "aplaymidi", that is included in alsa-utils.

The synthesizer should be started before kmid2 or any other player.

KMid belongs to Extragear, so it is not bundled in KDE SC. Also, it does not depend on the latest KDE libraries. You can compile and use KMid2 with any KDE version >= 4.2

This KMid2 incarnation is very young, so very few distros include the program in the official repositories. You can help asking to your distro packagers to distribute the program.

Pedro

Hi, this is a very interesting application for karaoke, I still use Vanbasco on wine :-(! Some features I need:
Separate Windows lyrics with full screen option on dual monitor, font pt autosetting, real time playlist editing (without "backgrounding" play), polish highlighting (font change colour only IMHO is good).
Excuse me for bad English

PS Automatic detection of text encodings for lyrics seems don't work

Hi!

Thanks for your comments. KMid2 is very new, and I'm sure that many features will be added in the future, with the help of the community.

I need more details about the problem of text encodings: file(s) that you are playing, are the files available on Internet? Can you please contact me privately?

I know that some mac-osx encodings are detected, but unavailable in Qt4 yet.


Regards,
Pedro

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
