HandBrake(0.9.4) GUI malfunction


I ve compiled HandBrake from source as well as installed it with success(--enable-Gtk).
However,many buttons (among them the 'Start' and the 'Pause' ones) do not seem to work at all-they are colored grey and I cannot click on them.Probably,it's a gui malfanction.I would appreciate any other aspect about it.

Download the source from handbrake, apply the patch, and compile. If you really need to, you can use this PKGBUILD as a guide: http://repos.archlinux.org/wsvn/pack...trunk/PKGBUILD

But be careful about some settings because they might be oriented towards Arch.

I do not know how to build a package for your distribution though.

I guess I don't really don't know what you meant by "further details"

How to apply the patch?

How to configure/compile?

How to install?

Firstly,I would like to inform you that everything went perfect and that I can now enjoy a full-featured Handbrake thanks to your contribution!So,I really appreciate your willing to help me and especially that you did it much faster than any other time I asked for some help on that forum.

As for your inquiry actually,I meant(by saying "further details) how I could apply the patch as I had never before tried to apply anyone whether it was a kernel patch(most common) or a software one.As for configure/compile Im a bit experienced on that.

Well, typically patching is pretty easy, the only thing you usually have to play with is where the patch file is relative to the source code. Most people like to use the "-i" option which will apply the patch in place using the filenames given inside the patch. You should read the man page if you have to do it again because there are various ways to specify the patch, the original file, and the output file.

Problem SOVLED then.
However,there's a qt4 folder within the source folder.Isnt supposed to be a qt4 GUI for HandBrake besides the GTK one?Actually,I like most the qt4 interface than the GTK one.
