alsa equalizer for fedora?


Hi all. I want the equalizer for alsa but can't seem to find out what package it is for Fedora. I'm using Fedora 20 64 bit. I found the 32 bit tgz and compiled it but it won't work with 64 bit. Thanks ahead of time.

besides the default "alsamixer" ??????

Fedora uses pulse audio
so pavucontrol should be installed already

Yes, besides just alsamixer.
I found a SUSE 64 bit package, alsaequal-0.6-3.1.x86_64 and installed it but now when I try to run
Code:
alsamixer -D equal
I get this error message:
ALSA lib ctl_equal.c:268 (_snd_ctl_equal_open) Problem with control file .alsaequal.bin, 3.
cannot open mixer: Operation not permitted

you can NOT !!!!!!!!! use a suse rpm on fedora !!!!!!!!

they are incompatible

use FEDORA rpms on fedora

UNINSTALL that incompatible rpm ASAP

what repos are installed and turned ON ?
Code:
su -
yum repolist all
and what do you see for
Code:
su -
yum search equalizer
there should be a bunch of things

including "pulseaudio-equalizer"

I installed apt and synaptic and did
Code:
apt-get install alsa-plugin-equal
and it failed with this error message:

PANIC: unprotected error in call to Lua API (attempt to index a nil value)

and I'm lost with this.

You can install it whatever way Fedora uses these days.

I think they named the package something different, like
libasound-equal or something likw that. ladspa-caps
maybe. Really weird name for the Fedora package, but
I did just install it and use the instructions I provided then.

Let us know how you like it when it starts working.

FEDORA IS NOT UBUNTU!!!!!!!!

you can NOT use Debian commands on a redhat based OS


and NO !!!!!
you CAN NOT !!!! install "Synaptic. " in fedora !!!!!!!
Fedora uses YUM!!!!!!!!
not "apt-get" !!!!!


Synaptic is a DEBIAN!!! gui package manager
and can NOT be used in fedora !


think of Debian and RedHat
like the "north" and "south" in the 1860's USA

they are all part on one bigger family
BUT they are not the same .

do a yum search and install whatever you want from the list
and there is also a alsa plugin
but fedora USES pulse audio by default

It's a PCLinuxOS site : PCLinuxOS uses "apt for rpm".

The alsa-plugin-equal is available as a "source SRC RPM" :
http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dis...os2012.src.rpm
Ref. http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dis...s/SRPMS.pclos/

Please use the SRC.RPM to build the package that will fit your OS :
$ rpmbuild --rebuild alsa-plugin-equal-0.6-1pclos2012.src.rpm

This is a fedora install


So
1) why install a SUSE rpm ?
2) do not use a debian package manager
3) fedora 20 is almost never compatible with any other rpm based distro
be very careful using a pclinux srcrpm on fedora

you will likely have to hack the code to get it to build using fedora's gcc 4.8

use the fedora rpm's in THE FEDORA 20 repos

The source code fits nicely with Fedora 20, both are using the same alsa version : 1.0.27.

Prerequisites : # yum install alsa-lib-devel caps rpm-build

Setting up the rpm-build environment in /home/<name> , post #13 here :
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1-a-766486/#13

Unpack the source code with : $ rpm -Uvh alsa-plugin-equal-0.6-1pclos2012.src.rpm

Building the package : $ rpmbuild -bb alsa-plugin-equal-fc20.spec
.... and the package `alsa-plugin-equal-0.6-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm' is created.

The package alsa-plugin-equal-0.6-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm is also available here ...
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7S...it?usp=sharing

Install with # yum localinstall alsa-plugin-equal-0.6-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm

Nothing about equal in any of these packages. I installed alsa-plugin-equal-0.6-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm and when I do
Code:
alsamixer -D equal
I get this error:

ALSA lib ctl_equal.c:268_snd_ctl_equal_open) Problem with control file .alsaequal.bin, 3.
cannot open mixer: Operation not permitted

I switched to another regular user and ran the same command and got this:

ALSA lib control.c:953snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL equal
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory

I copied an .asoundrc file to the user's directory and ran the command again and got the first error about the .alsaequal.bin file again.
