Python package version conflicts

Looks like installing LMMS installed a newer Python version but this did not trigger all Python packages to be also updated at the same time?

Is this a conceptual problem with how FreeBSD packages work?

In Debian, when you update Python to a version that requires other packages to be updated as well, it would also update those packages. At least if I am not mistaken.

How could we solve this?

Make MIDI keyboards "just work"

You maybe also need to add a devfs rule for the umidi* devices, to change permissions or ownership.

Yes, I would like the last plugged in MIDI device to be symlinked to /dev/midi with permissions that allow everyone to use it. What is the best way to do this?

the best would be to implement a midi server for FreeBSD of some kind

Yes, I understand. I was trying to send MIDI commands to /dev/midi while fluidsynth was using it, but it did not let me to. I guess this is where the MIDI server would come in.

I just put the ALSA MIDI sequencer server into FreeBSD ports

Is the ALSA MIDI server related to the ALSA stack in any way other than the name? Would an "OSS MIDI server" look different?

I would enjoy having something like virtual_midi resembling virtual_oss, so I'm in.

Is this what I was calling an "OSS MIDI server"?

Make MIDI keyboards "just work"

D'oh! At least for fluidsynth the solution is really simple:

sudo ln -s /dev/umidi0.0 /dev/midi
fluidsynth -m oss -a oss ~/Desktop/MuseScore_General.sf2

So a first step would probably be to just put this symlink in place by default on helloSystem.

Make MIDI keyboards "just work"

I can confirm that I see data (gibberish) coming in on sudo cat /dev/umidi0.0 when I press keys on the MIDI keyboard.

First thing sudo midipp does is also complain Could not connect to the JACK subsystem! (which I am not using at all).

I do see this:

I hope this means progress. Can I use this to "route events" (meaning MIDI data) to applications such as MuseScore, fluidsynth/QSynth and the like?

Make MIDI keyboards "just work"

Thanks @hselasky, very helpful.

I should add that I am not using JACK because it is way too complex for "normal users" in my opinion. I am also not using ALSA because it, too, adds complexity (albeit less). Hence I am interested in a "plan FreeBSD sound" solution, which I assume is OSS.

  • env MIDI_DEVICE=/dev/umidiX.X zynaddsubfx -I OSS compains about missing jackd
  • (sudo) env MIDI_DEVICE=/dev/umidi0.0 musescore does not make the MIDI keyboard work in MuseScore
  • QSynth, when changed to use OSS instead of jackd, is complaining about missing /dev/midi (where is this supposed to come from?)

At this point I a wondering 2 things:

  1. Is using MIDI devices with OSS on FreeBSD even possible?
  2. Is this documented somewhere?

Thanks for any pointers, they are very helpful since I know nothing about this.

Provide a simple, powerful and intuitive interface for changing wallpapers

I don't particularly like those user interfaces - they show some backgrounds the user has no clue about where they live in the filesystem. With our user interface, the user knows which file is used and where it is from.

Thanks @pestophagous. I will do more experimentation. 2 other apps on the same Android device are working fine with MIDI input, so I am a bit puzzled.

Plug your device to your computer, or hook a MIDI USB master keyboard via an OTG cable to play with this low-latency FluidSynth 1.1.9 based Synthesizer.

But it did not work for me either.

Check out I2S to send the IR signal on ESP8266

The ESP8266 is still arguably one of the least expensive and most popular devices to send infrared codes from WLANs.

https://shepherdingelectrons.blogspot.com/2018/10/the-ir-egg-voice-controlled-esp8266-i2s.html?view=magazine describes how to use I2S to accurately control output to a GPIO pin. Maybe it is of interest to you.

Are you aware that one can (ab)use the I2S module as a 5-bit PWM generator?

Why?

Do we need something utterly cmoplicated like JACK just to make the keyboard work?

Make updateable image

Thanks @daiyam

issue closedAppImage/pkg2appimage

Making AppImages updateable

To make an appimage updateable, we need to pass the parameter -u to appimagetool. appimagetool is called by the function generate_type2_appimage which pass all its arguments to appimagetool. generate_type2_appimage is called by the main script pkg2appimage but isn't passing any arguments.

My temporary fix, to make an appimage updateable, is to edit the script pkg2appimage to add the arguments -u "<url>" to the function call of generate_type2_appimage.

It would be good to be able to do:

  • ./pkg2appimage-*.AppImage recipes/XXX.yml -u "<url>"
  • or to add the update url directly to the yml file.

What do you think?

Thx
