(SOLVED) Downgrade audacious 4.0.5 to 3.10

Postby tdzito » Apr 6th, '21, 23:52

(sorry, google translate. :( I can't register in the forum pt-br).

I upgraded my mageia from 7 to 8, and audacious 4. 0.5 doesn't have some features I need. How do I get back to version 3.10.1?

Hi there, which features in particular?

There is no easy way to get back to version 3.10.1 - you could download the Mageia 7 src.rpm for audacious, and then try to rebuild that under Mageia 8, and then exclude this from updates.

I would have suggested you try to install it as a flatpak, but the oldest version available from flathub is already 4.0.2.

I miss the global hotkeys plugin. The integration with gtk themes is very bad, I know the player is now QT (I use xfce or i3wm). The toolbar button icons are not displayed correctly, just a blank space. And I have been having some problems with the desktop notification plugin.

So just download the old .rpm and install audacious, audacious-plugins and audacious-pulse and all their dependencies? And add the packages in
/etc/urpmi/skip.list? Where do I find these old packages?

Note: version 8 of Mageia looks great. I've been using the distro since 6. Congratulations on the great work of the development team.

About the toolbar buttons, that's probably an issue with your Qt theme, those look fine here.

No, I don't think you can install the mga7 packages, as audacious has been compiled against the mga8 libraries. You would have to download the mga7 src.rpm and rebuild it yourself on mga8.
I'ved described how to rebuild and src.rpm here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5530
Those should be the src.rpms (you can also grab them from your favorite mirror server):

If you type 'man audacious' in a terminal and scroll down to KEYBINDINGS you will find all defined keybindings for audacious. No additional plugin is needed for that. They are already built-in in version 4.0.5
Code: Select all
KEYBINDINGS

       Control + Return        Play
       Space, Control + ,      Pause
       Control + .             Stop
       Alt + Up                Previous song
       Alt + Down              Next song
       Right arrow             Seek forward (by default 5 seconds)
       Left arrow              Seek backward (by default 5 seconds)
       Escape                  Scroll to current song
       Control + a             Select all songs in playlist
       Shift + Control + a     Cancel selection
       Control + + (plus)      Increase volume 5 percent
       Control + - (minus)     Decrease volume 5 percent
       Control + s             Toggle shuffle
       Control + r             Toggle repeat
       Control + n             Toggle advancing in playlist
       Control + m             Toggle stopping after current song
       Control + e             Display Equalizer
       Control + y             Display Search Tool
       Control + i             Display Song Information dialog
       Control + k             Display Jump to Time dialog
       Control + j             Display Jump to Song dialog
       Control + p             Display Playlist Manager dialog
       Control + u             Display Queue Manager dialog
       Control + o             Display Open Files dialog
       Shift + Control + o     Display Add Files dialog
       Control + l             Display Open URL dialog
       Shift + Control + l     Display Add URL dialog


If you want to define completely other global settings, you can do it the following way: Xfce Systemsettings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts for applications -> Add -> *click the folder symbol and click audicious* -> append the possible application options -> define key combination

All possible application options for adacious can be found when you type 'man audacious' in a terminal. As example the option to play a music/video with adacious would be
Code: Select all
/usr/bin/audacious -p


Next song/movie would be
Code: Select all
/usr/bin/audacious -f


and so on and on...

The missing symbols are caused by the "Breeze-Dark" theme for symbols. If you chose any other theme for symbols you will see all icons. I reported this https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28751

(google translate) :D

Thank you for your help.

I liked the global hotkeys plugin to use in i3wm. I can pause, play or change the volume in any i3 workspace. However, I can do it in other ways. Yes. Doing that on xfce is pretty easy.

Maybe it's my nostalgia, because I've been using audacious for a long time. I thought the player was perfect as it was.

Anyway, I believe that this is just a matter of time. The player is in its first versions in QT. In the next releases some of these plugins may come back. I was reading the official forum earlier today and version 4.1 already has a new global plugin hotkeys.

I'm testing deadbeef and I think it is a very interesting alternative for those who want a simple gtk audio player. With the same features that audacious had up to version 3.10.1.

I just need to change the font size. This is easy to do.
