Unhappy Soundconverter startup error


Hi all I really enjoy using soundconverter and gst-plugins bad and ugly to make music for my portable devices I need mp3 and m4a support and the compile goes okay and all seems well but the program crashes with the following:

$ soundconverter
SoundConverter 1.5.4
error: No module named ui
SoundConverter needs gnome-python 2.10!

I should mention that I have uninstalled the slackbuild and used this custom salix package but that shouldn't matter because it reproduces the same error

I have everything installed correctly

(PS I have reproduced this error before on fresh installs on my machine. I am using sbotools to install soundconverter. the compile process has worked 2-3 times out of 10)

please help

It seems you mixed packages from sbo and gsb
Please try to install all deps from SBo to avoid confusion
All packages in SBo are tested with deps available on SBo repository

Yes, but i saw some came from gsb which we don't know what changes have been introduced by the developers
Try to use sbopkg + sqg to make your life easier

Or try reinstalling all packages that ends with gsb with sboinstall to make sure everything will end with SBo

Or you can go with pacpl. It's what I've used for at least a few years now and works great and it's in the right-click menu so it's easier than starting up an app.

It's not on slackbuilds.org though. You can get it at sourcforge. I'm still using 4.0.5, but it seems it's up to 5.0.1 now. It isn't too easy to install, but not real hard either. It *might* take a little fiddling here and there but it will eventually install if you keep at it. Once it's installed though, it sure is nice and easy to use!

Question Perl Audio Converter (pacpl)

Okay... I'll give it a shot. It seems to support tons of formats which is what I'm looking for. How do you get the gui?

note: I am not giving up on Soundconverter tho cos it an official Slackbuild

Angry new problem with pacpl

~$ pacpl
Can't locate Parallel/ForkManager.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Parallel::ForkManager module) (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at /usr/bin/pacpl line 26.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/pacpl line 26.

???

you were right! I uninstalled gnome-python-2.28.1-x86_64-1_SBo and gnome-python-desktop-2.30.0-x86_64-2gsb and performed an sboinstall for both those packages. the compile failed because I have evolution installed frome dropline so I did a slackpkg remove evolution and uninstalled the 4 packaged related to evolution and re-ran the sboinstall for gnome-python and gnome-python-desktop and the install completed fine and now soundconverter works. (thank-you very much) I since re-installed those 4 packages with dropline's pkcon install XXX and evolution is installed again and I have a fully functioning system running soundconverter with gst-plugins-bad, gst-ffmpeg and gst-plugins-ugly.

I just looked at it (at my 4.0.5...if you're having trouble with that new 5.0.1, go to the 4.0.5 and try it instead. I probably ran into the same trouble you did and that's why I stayed or went with the 4.0.5). You need to read the 'INSTALL' file and it says to go into the /extra directory and initiate the mod-install.sh which will try to install all the necessary perl modules you'll need (WARNING!- If you're on dialup this *will* take a while). Then go back to the main directory and try to configure, make, make install once again.
