Thread: Audex for leap 15.1

    Default Audex for leap 15.1

    Hi all,

    I'm like this small gui https://software.opensuse.org/package/audex for cdparanoia.
    Used it for yeas, gone with 15.1.

    Asked in #suse:

    Code:
    [16:49] <MichaelOF> hi all. loved this small and lean tool in Leap 15.0: Audex,  https://software.opensuse.org/package/audex Any hints why Audex has been gone in 15.1? 
    [16:55] <tigerfoot> MichaelOF: it seems it build for Leap 15.2 (so perhaps a rebirth) https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/KDE:Extra/audex but but it depend on kde4-devel which means almost will not last long in the future, if you know upstream and love this software time to ask (politely) them to migrate the code to qt5
    [16:56] <aaronpuchert> MichaelOF: Maybe because it's KDE4-based. See https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/690043.
    [16:57] <MichaelOF> tigerfoot: thanks for your answer, will definitively ask. As polite as possible, of course!
    [16:57] <MichaelOF> aaronpuchert: thank you, too
    .. and #kde
    Code:
    [17:07] <MichaelOF> hi all. I love a small tool for some years now, Audex: https://userbase.kde.org/Audex. Currently based on kde4, I would politely ask the owners if will support qt5, maybe in future
    [17:08] <MichaelOF> but no idea how to get in touch with them: Github https://github.com/KDE/audex/projects offers no possibility to add issues. https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi does not list it. 
    [17:09] <MichaelOF> could anyone give me hint about the "official" way how to place a request/wish like mine?
    [17:11] <JanKusanagi> github.com is not an official place for projects made by KDE
    [17:12] <JanKusanagi> https://cgit.kde.org/audex.git/log/
    [17:12] <JanKusanagi> seems active
    [17:12] <JanKusanagi> (semi)
    [17:13] <asturm> MichaelOF: audex can be built against kf5 from git master
    [17:13] <asturm> if your distro is shipping it, there's a good chance they are already using a snapshot based on kf5
    [17:15] <MichaelOF> asturm: I'm using OpenSuse Leap 15.1. Audex was included in official repos until Leap 15.0, now gone. That's why I'm asking, missing it :(  Asked about Audex in #suse, and got the hint to ask the Audex developers about qt5
    [17:16] <asturm> MichaelOF: ask opensuse to make a snapshot
    [17:16] <asturm> or maybe there is an opensuse repository for additional software
    [17:17] <asturm> of course, an actual kf5 based upstream release would go a long way towards downstream recognition
    Any hints who and how I should "ask opensuse to make a snapshot"?


    Regards,
    Michael

    https://software.opensuse.org/package/audex5 Took me a fraction of a second to find.

    Absolutely no idea how you're searching. Starting from software.opensuse.org, even enabling ALL options to include dev pkgs etc., I'm forwarded to this URL: https://software.opensuse.org/search...ctory&q=audex5
    without a single hit.

    So maybe a software.opensuse.org issue?

    Klicking on "Show communtity packages" should help......

    "Show communtity packages" is earliest available once you've FOUND a package.
    Which exactly had been NOT the case for me, I COULDN'T find anything.

    But I've found out that really https://software.opensuse.org/ search results are somewhat "by chance"

    Maybe because of Firefox incompatibilities?

    Steps reproducible for me:




    --> NOTHING found at this stage <--

    "Workaround":
    • when at this step, klick on "ALL distributions" and select any other option.
    • klick search
    • select e.g. "ALL distributions" again


    EARLIEST now "Audex" and "Audex5" are found.

    Completely confusing, at least for lightheads like me, 1000+ extra points for usability

    Thanks to all who answered!!!

    Well, I just put "Opensuse audex" into a google search, and this came back:

    Code:
    audex             KDE4 based CDDA extraction tool
                 Audex is an audio grabber tool for CD-ROM drives based on KDE 4.
    @ https://software.opensuse.org/package/audex

    There are five repos listed under 15.1 Show community packages.

    Is this what you wanted?
    OpenSuse 15.1, Plasma 5.17
    Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H Mobo; 16G Ram
    Intel Core i5-4570 Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.60 GHz)

    For me with audex as search string:

    THANKS again to all who answered!!!

    But please trust me that I'm able to press "search" on a website.

    It's really the "software.opensuse.org" search which is buggy, as said from time to time.
