pulseaudio-equalizer gui

I have a problem regarding pulseaudio-equalizer not showing.
Terminal output writes

I have openSUSE 12.3 x86 KDE and pulseaudio-equalizer-gtk or qt is not in any repo.
Even pavucontrol looks like it doesnt have a proper gui

Im writing this because my speakers are broken and I need a system wide equalizer to boost high and middle tones.

Hi
You installed the packman version? If you run pulseaudio-equalizer-gtk
from the command line, it should start?

I use it here in GNOME and it works fine.

Hi
It’s part of the package as you have discovered… :slight_smile:

So, create the directory then see how it goes;


mkdir -p ~/.pulse/presets
pulseaudio-equalizer-gtk

FYI I packaged/maintain this on packman :wink:

And with

mkdir -p ~/.pulse/presets

it magically works :slight_smile:
When i run it from terminal it still displays an ugly massage

Getting settings...
ls: cannot access /home/slk/.pulse/presets/*.preset: No such file or directory

so i went and made him the file (*.preset) and placed it in presets and got

Getting settings...
Match!

So everybody is happy.
Thx Oscar you have been vary helpful

Hello,

openSUSE 12.3 x86_64 KDE 4.10.1

I am experiencing similar issues in this tread, however out of curiousty, why aren’t these directories created automatically to function out of the box? It’s a bit more cumbersome for the end user to have to resolve this on their own.

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/Grimling/.pulse/equalizerrc'

So I went ahead and created /home/Grimling/.pulse/, however I encountered another issue:

/usr/bin/pulseaudio-equalizer: line 78: 10+: syntax error: operand expected (error token is "+")

    num_ladspa_controls = int(rawdata[9])
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''

In the end, by following the instructions by SLK021, it appears to be working properly now.

Sincere
