Just checked on this. It looks like, at the moment, Bangarang doesn't recognize the video/webm mimetype as video for indexing purposes. It's a trivial one-line fix so I'll include it in the nextbugfix release. - Aug 02 2011

If possible, could you report this problem on the issue tracker at http://code.google.com/p/bangarangissuetracking/issues/list ? Then it will have the full attention of the team.

Thanks much! - Jan 28 2011

Thanks for the feedback! I'll have the app remember the state of the selected Audio/Video tab.

Glad things are working out a bit better for you. The best way to get support when things aren't working as expected is to file a bug report. That way we can gather enough information to diagnose the problem. - Jun 21 2010

Bangarang uses whatever media data is stored in nepomuk. If you set up strigi to index your data in System Settings, Bangarang will use whatever it put in nepomuk. An option in Bangarang to launch strigi is a possibility though. :-)

There are occasions when the user doesn't have strigi enabled, or prefers not to have strigi index their media files (or because some versions of strigi doesn't index all the metadata used by Bangarang) where they will use Bangarang do the indexing. But, except for data that cannot be extracted by strigi, it isn't required to use Bangarang to do it.

Hope this helps and thanks,
Andrew - May 18 2010

A shortcuts editor is already in master for the upcoming 2.0 version, not to mention a few other features. The 2.0 feature list is on the developement wiki page at gutorious.

Thanks so much for the encouragement and feedback and also for your offer to package for fedora.

Thanks for the suggestions for dealing with seasonless TV Shows. It would certainly save unnecessary clicks.

I'm still working through the user workflows for Music Videos. I'll definitely keep your suggestion in mind.

I'll look at both of your suggestion for the 2.0 release I'm currently working on. - Mar 09 2010

Try it. I haven't strictly tested this use case. But, currently I have all my videos on a my desktop machine. I manually mount the nfs share on my laptop when I need it. Bangarang always shows me all the videos I categorized - mounted or not.

The only thing that will likely not work is if the external hdd mounts to a different mount point. Nepomuk in KDE SC 4.4 has some new accomodation for that so I'll work that into the next feature release.

Hope this helps. - Jan 18 2010

Yeah, a Coherence plug in would be great. I'll probably make the Bangarang platform code into a library soon so it would be easy to create a Coherence plugin using it. The platform code is already completely separated from the ui code and it drives all the data in all the lists, including the sidebar lists under audio and video. If anyone cares to jump in they're more than welcome! - Jan 07 2010

Yeah, I'll be adding a "Add selected to <Saved List>" action, just haven't gotten around to it yet. :-)

The Video Clips type is the catch all at the moment for anything that's not a Movie or a TV Show. Shorts is also a good name for it I guess, but I'll leave it as Video Clips for now. I've have something very specific in mind for music vidoes, but it needs a few more pieces - likely be a post 1.0 thing... I really want to focus on getting the basics working relatively bug free first.

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. - Nov 24 2009

Sorry, you've run into difficulties. :-(

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to reproduce the error and I'm unable to decipher much from the gdb output provided. If anyone else has any ideas, I certainly welcome them.

In the meantime, feel free to file a bug report if you'd like to keep track any fixes.

This is wonderful! This new version looks great. Love the refinments and I'm excited about the future of this browser. It just... looks... good. You clearly have a vision for rekonq This is no longer just an Arora fork with better KDE integration. This becoming a credible, modern browser in it's own right.

Love it, love it, love it.

Would you mind trying fresh sources from below and tell me if you still encouter the problem? oooh, I hate segfaults. They're a b***h for me to track down.

You can get the fresh sources from http://gitorious.org/bangarang. If you don't have git you can download a tarball of the source by clicking on the "Source Tree" link. the "Download as tar.gz" link is on the left. - Oct 09 2009

Could you say what other kinds of video files you're trying to open that it's not seeing? I basically took a stab at a list of mimetypes for it to recognize, so I'd like to check if your video type aren't in this list or if it's come other bug. - Oct 08 2009

Looks like missing or incorrect Phonon includes. There was a bug in the Phonon camel case includes in Qt 4.5.0 or Qt 4.5.1 that caused similar problems for me when compiling. That bug went away either when I updated to Qt 4.5.2 or when I updated to KDE 4.3 from backports in kubuntu (don't remember which). Not sure if it's the same problem you're experiencing but hopefully it helps a little.

Thanks much for the feedback. If I come up with any other ideas I'll pass them on. If anyone else has any ideas I'm all ears. - Oct 07 2009

At the moment the shutdown dialog is designed to work with KDE 4.2.x which uses the standard 9 element background to render the shutdown dialog. (It does this because shutdown dialog may appear at different sizes in 4.2.x). I could group these 9 elements with a group id = "background" which would make it compatible with both kde 4.1 and kde 4.2. I'll post an update when I get around to it. I'm unable to duplicate the problems you're having with your systray.

Hope this helps and glad you find the theme useful! - Mar 26 2009

I really really love this. It is now my default ask manager.

Would it be possible to add a setting to not show text shadows? Hopefully the KDE task manager will have a similar option by 4.3. It'll really help when using lighter colored plasma themes where some would like to turn off the white text shadow.

Thanks so much for this really awesome plasmoid.

Take care. - Mar 12 2009

The text and shadow rendering is handled by the widget itself (in this case the tasks widget). Perhaps they'll add to the tasks widget an option to change the text color or not show a shadow (like the folderview currently does). It's an option I wouldn't mind myself. :-) - Feb 17 2009

Plasma Themes by jamboarder 20 comments

That's odd. Text color in the panel is supposed to be whatever your current foreground text color is. Is the text color always white no matter which color scheme you use? Does the same problem occur with Aya? - Feb 16 2009

The svg file handling tasks theming is tasks.svg in the widgets folder. If you open that file, delete elements with the "attention-" id prefix, make a copy of the elements with the "focus-" id prefix then rename the id of these new elements to "attention-topleft", "attention-top", etc. Save the file and reload the theme by switching to another theme and back.

Hope this helps. - Jan 25 2009
