Minitube

Can anyone inform me on a way to install Minitube in #! Stable since I don't see it in the Squeeze repos?

Thanks in advanced

Re: Minitube

I think minitube was pulled from the Squeeze repo during the testing-to-stable freeze shakedown due to dependency issues.  (EDIT:  Also, since minitube is shareware, it may have been pulled from the Stable repo due to licensing issues.)  You may be able to download the .deb from testing or unstable and install it with dpkg.  Alternatively, you could get it from the developer's website.

Re: Minitube

Thanks pvsage, I went in a hunt and found a way to get it installed.

Re: Minitube

^ You can make minitube 1.7 work in stable even without building it.
Download the tarball from http://flavio.tordini.org/minitube and then you will have to install the QT 4.7 dependencies - see details http://flavio.tordini.org/minitube/minitube-linux-setup
For that add mepis repos to your sources.list. You can find them here http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php? … t_MEPIS_11 (just the 3 uncommented mepis lines should do) and you will need also mepis signing key: http://www.mepis.org/node/154
This distro is based on debian stable with KDE (4.7 at the moment) so it is safe to use it for a few things - in my case UMPlayer and wine wink.
After sudo apt-get update install missing requirements, extract minitube and you are ready to go. It works, but my old machine needs specific video output (X11) and there is no option to change it in preferences. So I can pick a video and hear audio, but I only see black screen hmm
Therefore I prefer UMPlayer - does the same job and you can also watch movies in it (it is a front-end for mplayer).
BTW don't forget to modify your sources.list afterwards...
As always use it at your own risk. Enjoy!

These directions built and installed minitube perfectly! Didn't take long to install and works great on my thinkpad laptop!

Re: Minitube

Those instructions (also on the debian Forums) worked fine for me yesterday, compiling 1.7.1 on Debian Squeeze (or, rather, standard #!).

I think some bugs have been fixed since 1.7, anyway it seems to be working fine on my system with the normal qt4.6 libraries. If anyone wants to try it, I've posted the checkinstall-generated deb file here. Dependencies have been added so hopefully it should pull in anything missing if you install it with gdebi. Of course no guarantees...

btw, I haven't yet figured out how to use the "playlist" menu. Is that only for playlists hosted on Youtube?

Thank you, works like a charm! Last time I tried to install minitube on #!, I totally f*cked up my whole system. Not sure how I did it, but f'ed up it was...

So, thanks again!

Re: Minitube

@johnraff

It works, but why you use checkinstall? Minitube is in testing/sid repos, just sligthly change scripts and you have proper deb to share.

Re: Minitube

I must give this a go on my netbook sometime soon.

Anyone have a amd64 deb for Squeeze?  If not, I'll try my hand at building a checkinstall deb this weekend.  Gdebi is complaining about wrong architecture.

Because I'm running Squeeze, and I didn't want to upgrade my qt libraries to 4.7, which the minitube binaries require. Compiling from source I was able to use the standard Squeeze 4.6.3

checkinstall might not have been necessary, but I wasn't sure which of the built files were actually needed for an install, so I let checkinstall choose them, then edited the Debian control file to put the dependencies in. I don't think the resulting deb file is very different from the standard Debian package, except that you can use it on Squeeze without updating any libraries.

@pvsage compiling wasn't particularly difficult. Just installed all those *-dev packages and it worked first time with no errors, much to my amazement. No idea about 64bit though.

Re: Minitube

That minitube which i linked is rebuild on squeeze by me. It contains all files which is needed.

@pvsage

Why checkinstall? If you want amd64 version just rebuild it on your amd64 system:

sudo apt-get install cdbs debhelper libqt4-dev libphonon-dev

Then you need 2 files 'minitube_1.7.1.orig.tar.gz' and 'minitube_1.7.1-1.debian.tar.gz' in one clean folder.. Unpack both and put 'debian' folder inside 'minitube' folder. Then in 'minitube' folder run:

debuild

Wait to compile and as a result there will be your amd64 version of minitube smile.

Re: Minitube

I think i do not understand, you said this is not source to trust:

http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/minitube
http://qa.debian.org/cgi-bin/watch?pkg=minitube

roll ?

But if i made checkinstall package of 'gtk-youtube-viewer' and put it in dropbox someone will trust me roll

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/74553632/gtk-yo … i_i386.deb

Re: Minitube

btw making a debian package, either with checkinstall or debuild, is not the same as compiling. Compiling is the process of generating a binary file from source code, and has to come first.

Re: Minitube

I know, but in case of gtk-youtbe-viewer there is nothing to compile (perl scripts) - just make package.

Re: Minitube

I upload minitube deb laboratory with deb of same version, so anyone can use deb from it and check it, change it or
rebuild it... Enyone, not just some persons who rumor to trust me. If you not trust my deb, check it and rebuild with your tools - it is easy.

Not deliberately anyway... nothing comes with any guarantee of being trouble-free, or even of not causing disastrous problems! (Usual GNU-Crunchbang license stuff.)

@smoki I appreciate your input. Indeed, maybe I should have followed the route you suggest, and produced a proper standards-compliant Debian package. That would have involved having to study those standards and procedures, with which I am not yet sufficiently familiar. In this case I just wanted a quick Minitube install for my personal use, and shared the resultant deb file in the hope it might save some people a little time.

This sums up my opinion of sharing a checkinstall-generated deb quite eloquently.  Douldn't have said it better myself.

Re: Minitube

Well, this is embarrassing.  Seems the binary included in the latest tarball runs just fine OOTB on amd64.  Download, extract, run - easy peasy!  It does require a phonon backend, but this is mentioned in the install notes included in the tarball.
