Notice: Git repositories moved to gitlab.com

March 25, 2015

Due to the upcoming shutdown of the gitorious.org service, caused by the company behind it being acquired by GitLab, I’ve moved my Git repositories to their proposed gitlab.com service.

This includes the Git repos for Dianara and Auralquiz, which are now located at https://gitlab.com/dianara/dianara-dev and https://gitlab.com/auralquiz/auralquiz-dev.

You can update your clone with this command in their corresponding directories:

git remote set-url origin https://gitlab.com/dianara/dianara-dev.git

git remote set-url origin https://gitlab.com/auralquiz/auralquiz-dev.git

… and then just git pull as usual.

Each project has an issue tracker right there now.

Let me know if you find any issues with this move.

Cheers! o/


Still alive!

March 9, 2013

Hello there! Since the blog looks a little dead, here’s a quick post!

I haven’t done much coding lately, so not much to blog about. The development versions of some of my programs have had some minor updates, but not enough for a release. I’ve also adapted some of them to be Qt5-compatible.

On a side note, sometimes I get visits from people looking for information on why Auralquiz doesn’t work for them. Well, all I can say for now is: use the Phonon-VLC backend. Phonon-Xine worked great with it, but was (and for the moment, still is) deprecated, and Phonon-Gstreamer has some problems with it, so… Phonon-VLC is the one that works for now. Sorry for the trouble.


Mini-update

May 14, 2012

Just a quick update to say two things:

1.- If you try Dianara, the Diaspora App, in its 0.2 version from nonGNU or Qt-apps, it won’t get any posts in the timeline. Some stuff has been changed in Diaspora, so you’ll need to test the development version of Dianara directly from Git.

2.- If you have problems running Auralquiz, my music guessing game (if it doesn’t play sound), check if you’re using Phonon-backend-gstreamer in your Phonon configuration. If so, try using Phonon-backend-vlc.

Auralquiz does not work right with the Gstreamer backend at this point, I don’t know yet if it’s some regression in the latest Phonon-gstreamer or a problem in the way Auralquiz handles things. Switching to the vlc-backend should help. Or the xine-backend, if you still can.

Cheers!
