Wink Running 3D movies on Slackware


Hi all,

I have just recently got a Dell Inspiron 7720 with 3D capability. I would like to watch 3D movies on my brand spanking new Slackware64-current install. I have tried to install Bino, sView and they all seem to be designed only for Debian-based systems. I have downloaded the packages, used rpm2txz, deb2tgz to no avail. is there any other application I can use; please help.

Looking at the sView Download page, there are source packages available and a Git repository you can download from )under "Other Systems"), why don't you use that? Bino also has a source code version and instructions on building it.

Give those methods a go and post back if you get stuck.

Hi Xavier, thanks for your response. As indicated earlier, I have tried both a without any success. sView is purely Debian based with dependencies that I have checked for and cannot find. Bino on the other hand, provides this error messsage when I try to complile it.

I have highlighted the relevant areas for you. Slackware does not do dependency checking and installing. Whenn compiling from source, the program will let you know if any important dependencies are not found and then will point them out. You should check for these programs in the Slackware packager and install them.

Worse case scenario is that you will spend a few hours downloading and installing a few extra programs.

---------- Post added 16th Nov 2013 at 20:46 ----------

You may also need to find where the (32-bit?) program is looking for these dependencies and create syminks so it will call on them.

Thanks XavierP. After playing around, I finally got Bino installed. Problem is now I get this error when I load up any video file:

"This OpenGL implementation does not support required features."

I click OK and the window bombs out. I started Bino from the commandline to check output and I got this:

Hi XavierP; Using Qt version 4.8.5 in /usr/lib64/qt/lib

Just as an addendum, I have also tried sView after resolving a number of dependencies and I get this error when trying to load movie:

[xcb] Unknown request in queue while dequeuing
[xcb] Most likely this is a multi-threaded client and XInitThreads has not been called
[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
sView: xcb_io.c:179: dequeue_pending_request: Assertion `!xcb_xlib_unknown_req_in_deq' failed.
Aborted

This when sView starts: "ERROR !! X, no Quad Buffered visual". I did some reading and added the following to my xorg.conf under the Device, but still no joy:

Option "Stereo" "1"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "UBB" "1"


By the way, I am running the proprietary Nvidia driver, the latest for linux NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.20.

Thanks for your help, I really appreaciate it.

Unfortunately Quad Buffer for shutter glasses (like 3D Vision) is available only for professional cards (Quadro, FireGL) on Linux, and only in proprietary drivers as far as I know.
There are tricks like software Pageflip emulation (extra option in sView, hidden by default) to force pageflipping, but still no confirmed way to use shutter glasses without problems on consumer graphics that I know of.

This is an issue with open file dialog only, which appeared in some cases on recent Gtk+.
You may workaround it by opening file using command-line interface or using drag-n-drop (drag file from file browser directly to the opened sView window).

thanks gkv311,

Tried that, seems to be working. There is no Video though, and I can hear the sound.

one more thing; on the sView window, on the bottom left-hand corner next to the play button is a blurred image. I think its part of the window, its always there, even before I load up a file.

It seems time box widget and... no text in it?

If text is missing in the program than Slackware has one more unique way to package DejaVu fonts.
"DejaVuSans.ttf" is needed and sView tries the following paths:
Code:
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/dejavu
/usr/share/fonts/
Could you try find out where "DejaVuSans.ttf" is located in your system?

Thanks gkv311; created a new font directory usr/share/fonts/TTF/dejavu and copied the DejaVuS* files over. Now looks fine, with menu on top. When I try to load a movie, I get this error:

FFmpeg: Codec return wrong frame size.

I upgraded my FFmpeg using ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-1alien.txz. Still this error persists; any ideas around this.

BTW the movies I am trying to open are MKV and MP4 formats; SBS.

Thanks in advance

It is difficult to give advice without having these files.
You may look onto output of ffmpeg command tool (ffmpeg -i fileName.mkv) to check video tracks are determined correctly by FFmpeg itself.

By the way, 1.2 is relatively old release (current sView 13.10 release is developed on FFmpeg 2.0, although should be backward compatible with older versions).

glewmx on slackware-current

In order to enable glewmx download all the files from this link: http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackwa...source/x/glew/

Change the make commands (lines 77 & 78), from this:
make $NUMJOBS OPT="$SLKCFLAGS" || make OPT="$SLKCFLAGS" || exit 1
make install GLEW_DEST=$PKG/usr || exit 1

to this:
make all $NUMJOBS OPT="$SLKCFLAGS" || make OPT="$SLKCFLAGS" || exit 1
make install.all GLEW_DEST=$PKG/usr || exit 1

Then remove the old glew package and install the new one:
removepkg glew
installpkg /tmp/glew-1.10.0-i486-1.txz

Try to compile Bino again and it will find the glewmx lib.

Regards,
tdmsilvino
