Running KDE on Leap 42.2 I have both K3B and transcode installed via Yast however when I try to rip the video on a home made DVD K3B says it cant find transcode. Does anyone else see this or have an idea as to how to fix it? I should point out that dvdrip does find transcode just fine.
Just before I saw your comment I tested this on Tumbleweed as well and it failed. TW K3b is from packman at 17.04.1-11.1 and transcode is also from packman at 1.1.7-3.3. Neither show any updates. Not sure about the Leap 42.2 system as I just turned it off when TW failed as well.
You probably used k3b 2.0.3 from the standard 42.2 repos?
I just tried myself here with 17.04.2, and can confirm that ripping a DVD doesn’t work at all because transcode is “not found”.
The patch does fix that, and a quick test here ripped a title succesfully.
I guess I’ll add the patch to our package then, though another confirmation would still be good too.
And a bug report should be filed upstream at bugs.kde.org too (I may do it myself in the next days), the current behavior is irritating at best. If transcode support is removed, it should not ask for installing transcode at the same time (which won’t help anyway).
And of course it would be nice to be able to rip using other tools (ffmpeg e.g.).
I had this problem a while back, along with some other issues getting multimedia codecs to work. Switching the system packages to the packman repo solved the problem, so you can try that and see if it works.
YaST > Software Management > Repositories tab: Under name, select Packman Repository, then above the window on the right there will be a message stating, “Switch system packages to the versions in this repository.” Click that, and then click accept.
Try that and see if it works.
Also, someone should move this thread to applications.
