Hi !

I'm running Mandrake 10. In gnome my XMMS sound player works alright. If I then log out of gnome and directly into kde and then starts XMMS it disappear from my screen when clicking on the play button. No error messages, it just disappear.

How can this be solved? Please help me!

Thanks Andrew !

XMMS starts then typing the command artsdsp xmms. If I then hit the play button, the program disappear and I get this output in the Console:
Code:
Segmentation fault

You've probably found a bug in XMMS, please visit
http://bugs.xmms.org and fill out a bug report.
Do you have some more suggestions?

Well, if you can compile things from source this plugin may work http://havardk.xmms.org/plugins/arts...t-0.7.1.tar.gz I can't test it myself as I don't use KDE. Hopefully someone who knows what they're talking about will help you.

Thanks Andrew !

I appreciate your help!

I have downloaded the plugin arts_output-0.7.1 as you suggested.

But I'm a Linux newbie so I need some help with the installation of the plugin. The plugin readme file read as follows:

aRts plugin for XMMS

To compile the plugin you need Glib (1.2.x), Gtk+ (1.2.x), arts, and
xmms. You also need header files for all these which is often in a
separate development package.

To compile the plugin:

./configure
make

Then install as root with:

make install

If you don't have root privilegies, you can instead:
* Copy .libs/libarts.so to ~/.xmms/Plugins/
* Copy xmms-arts-helper to some location that is in your PATH.


I made a try typing ./configure in the Console. I got this output:
Code:
[root@dhcppc0 arts_output-0.7.1]# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
How do I proceed?

Can someone please help me !

In KDE go to menudrake (Alt+F2 - type: menudrake).
Find your XMMS entry in the menu tree on the left.
Highlight it and look at the command entry on the right. If it says: "soundwrapper xmms" (without the quotes) delete the 'soundwrapper' part from the command entry, click save and exit menudrake.
Should sort it out.

As for your other problem with the aRts plugin - it's telling you that you need a C compiler to compile the plugin.
There's one on the CD's if you haven't configured your sources, otherwise you can download one through rpmdrake.

What is soundwrapper and what is its function?

Found this on the Mandrake site:
Quote:
Soundwrapper: When placed before a command to run a program with some audio component,
that program's audio output is redirected to the aRts or EsounD sound
servers if either of them is in control of the sound device.
It doesn't seem to work (or is buggy and seems to hinder XMMS only AFAIK) on 10.0 or 10.1ce either.

Glad you got it sorted out though.
