I think I have the same issue with DeaDBeeF and GTK3 plugins: it gets killed/quits.
I first tried just replacing the files from the Software Centrer install with the binary build, but I must have made a mistake since deadbeef would not run anymore from /usr/bin.
The workaround I have found is to:
- have DeaDBeeF installed via the Software Center (only needed for use of the launcher)
- download the binary build
and save the extracted files to "~/.deadbeef" (hidden home folder) or your preference;
- restore or download GTK3 plugins
, save .so-files to "~/.local/lib64/deadbeef" (assuming x64 binary in previous step);
- restore settings (if applicable) to "~/.config/deadbeef";
- open gedit from terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/deadbeef.desktop
- edit launcher reference: change "Exec=deadbeef %F" to "Exec=/home/username/.deadbeef/deadbeef" (fill in your "username");
I now have DeaDBeeF running flawlessly with the following plugins:
- RAR, 7z and Gzip archive reader v1.1
- File Browser (GTK3) v0.92
- Musical Spectrum (GTK3) v0.2
- Playback order menu (GTK3) v0.1
- Waveform Seekbar (GTK3) v0.5
- Infobar (GTK3) v1.4
- GNOME multimedia keys support v1.1
- Customizable toolbar for GTKUI (GTK3) v0.1
Would be great if the maintainers would update deadbeef with a working GTK3 option, as my solution is not the cleanest; but I'm not holding my breath.
