AV Linux / Cannot find ecryptfs-utils in Synaptic
« Last post by casals51 on Yesterday at 06:31:29 AM »
Hi everybody,

I just installed AVLINUX, which looks very promising, but I can't find one application I need to secure some files on my computer. The search in Synaptic gives nothing for ecryptfs-utils. Which deposit could be added safely in Synaptic to have this package for installation? Thank you!

Kontakt Player 6 in PlayonLinux

Kontakt player doesnt seem to work with PulseAudio directly and playonlinux seems to automatically
configure to use Pulseaudio if your system is using it. it needs Alsaaudio driver the workaround
is to install Winetricks to change the wine audio driver.

In Playon linux
Step 1 Create a 64 bit prefix as a new virtual drive dont install kontakt yet
next do (WINEPREFIX=/home/jk/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Native_NI_64 ./winetricks)  in a  Xfce terminal
this is example for my system. Wait for winetricks to start . When play on linux starts
select the default wineprefix
next screen go to change setting  ,select sound=alsa then ok
then from in playonlinux select configure from that window select the correct Virtual drive.
select Configure wine and verify that Sound is using winealsa.drv
next open Registry Editor use find winealsa should show winealsa.drv then devices
if pulseaudio is listed right click and delete it you only want winealsa.drv under drivers. exit

Now do a manual install of Kontakt player6
After install start the player from options audio should show (WASAPI shared mode) select (Out default)
next do a manaul install of Native Accsess.  run Access to authorize the player and actitate
your sample libraries.  Should be working .  I used wine version 3.20 but 3.03 work  also in wine config
Applications win 10 , 7 , xp all work
In pulseaudio volume control the Alsa plug-in (wine64-preloader) ALSA playback is set for  Jack sink     

The one issue i haven't figured out is minimizing the window will not redraw the window but the
player will continue to work.  rolling the window up or down works ok.

Couple of issues I forgot

Manual install works  Installing from Access hangs and fails. After install wine should be set to win 7 for Native Access to authorize
then set Kontakt6 to use win xp or vista in winecfg .  Wine needs to use wineasla.drv 
Also minimizing the window will cause a crash but rolling up the window works.
If anyone could fix the minimizing issue   please post.

Native Access downloads to the .wine/drive_c/users/??/Downloads/       You can  use Xachiever to extract the zip file.

AV Linux / Re: ffmpeg - help needed in upgrading a buggy version

Have you seen this post?

ffmpeg is just a native Debian Stretch package so I'm surprised it has upgrade problems, what are the dependency conflicts?

NI  Kontakt player 6  (Sample Player) is working well enough to use for recording

What works what doesn't
After install and activation  I found using wineasio not working, lots of drop out and xruns I spent alot of time trying different setting but no go
maybe some one can figure it out?   But using WASAPI shared mode through Pulse Audio into Jack works . The player is free . years ago I did alot
of sequencing with midi. pulling that old work out and running through a great samples is fricking great.  Loading samples is super fast and on the fly.
now I've only set it up for a 4 piece Jazz band but sounds great. And with alot of sample available lots of fun.  If some one has trouble let me know Ill
try to help.

Using  AVLinux 2016 x64,
Wine ver 3.02  Wine configure  overrides ( msvcp120 (native , Builtin ) msvcr 120 n,b and  msvcr140 n,b )  use Windows version XP   
These setting work for me but other may also.



AV Linux / ffmpeg - help needed in upgrading a buggy version
« Last post by DanielKonopka on November 02, 2018, 10:30:11 PM »

I'm currently using AVLinux 2017.4.9 (which is great).

However, I ran into a problem with ffmpeg (3.2.4-1), which has been fixed in a more recent version. (see:

How do I go about upgrading ffmpeg safely? I really can't afford to move to a more recent AVLinux version at this moment.

I've tried to use aptitude and synaptic, but the resolved dependencies are all messed up and I'm seriously worried about breaking something else.

AV Linux / [SOLVED] Help needed with Graphics Drivers.
« Last post by yorick on November 01, 2018, 08:49:59 PM »
Sorry, it was Realtek GTX550Ti.  And I found the issue which turned out to be a dodgy DV>VGA adapter, probably as a result of the machine being moved about on multiple occasions.  Replaced adapter and all is rosy. 

Thanks for the help

What about:
"When installing the official Nvidia drivers did you boot on non-rt kernel and blacklisted nouveau?"

Also by googling there is no nvidia 540 only 540m which implies that it's a laptop ,so maybe there is also intel HD graphics enabled.
