Hi,
I just tried to conntect my headphones to my laptop and then i had to change the source manually to listen from the headphones.
The only way to solve this, is to enable automute from alsamixer and then create a script that is running changing this value everytime i reboot my laptop.
Is it possible to make veromix automute speakers when we connect our headphones ?
Thank you and sorry about my poor english.

I also got the same problem on Kubuntu 11.10 after installing KDE 4.8 RC from ppa, and it isn't solved with latest upgrades.
Veromix plasmoid works normally via plasmoidviewer app, but isn't work when I try to add it into panel or desktop. The error is:
Could not create a python ScriptEngine for the Veromix widget.

Can anybody tell where can be the problem and how can I try to solve this problem?

Problem solved after removing plasma configs and creating default settings: removed ~/.kde/share/config/plasma* files and restarted plasma.

hi, i upgraded my pyqt and python-sip packages and that solved the problem for me. I'm on Archlinux. You may also want to try with a new plasma-desktop-appletsrc in your kde4 config directory.

Thank you.
For some reason the problem solved itself, I think because those packages were upgraded.
I'm on kubuntu 12.04 alpha

I do not "add apps" - an app is listed when the app has an mpris2 dbus interface or is supported by kde's nowplaying-dataengine.
So if your favorite app is not listed ask its developper to implement the mpris2 specification..

Veromix is working nicely in general, except:

after adding the Veromix plasmoid to my desktop, my KDE would not be able to load completely when the machine is fresh booted. It would stuck at the last step of the KDE splash screen.

Checking from a virtual console (Ctrl-Alt-F1), plasma-desktop is consuming 100% CPU.

I need to restart kdm, and the 2nd time login would normally work. (Yes, the 1st time kde login upon system boot would get stuck, and subsequent kde login would normally be fine)

Removing the Veromix plasmoid would stop this behavior. I am not sure how I could get more useful info on debugging the problem.

KDE 4.6.5 on amd64 gentoo system

Hi

@debug:
- try to disable "Media Player Controls" in Veromix settings.

- launch dbus-monitor on a virtual console (Ctrl-Alt-F1, login, export DISPLAY=:0 , dbus-monitor > /tmp/myfile.txt, then login via KDM). And attach the file to a bugreport on http://code.google.com/p/veromix-plasmoid/issues/list

- Is there any "user-process" running after you have restarted KDM?

- check .xsession-errors (don't forget to delete it before the first login)

- try an older versions of veromix http://code.google.com/p/veromix-plasmoid/downloads/list?can=1

Are you building the openSUSE package as well? If so, I have to say that it doesn't have all (or any?) of the dependencies sorted out. I am glad you had them listed here. I had to pull in swh-plugins and python-kdebase4 (which is the package that has the plasma-scriptengine-python) manually. Also, Veromix runs twice in my system tray, and the only thing I can get it to display was amarok playback information. I thought I might have to set pulseaudio as phonon-backend, but I don't find packages for that, so I must be wrong. How can I get it to display more than playback information? And how can I reduce it to 1 instance? Thanks! Can't wait to see on my own system what veromix can do.

I am not the maintainer of the suse pkgs..

I suggest that you start the veromix service manually to get some error messages (check the wiki on google-code for detailled info / follow the homepage link above) - also check if there is a pulseaudio process running.

Multiple instances of the widgets are no problem (i got 4)

Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply, I hope it will help.
When I try to start the service manually, I get "Failed to create secure directory: Keine Berechtigung [no rights]
main loop". The service doesn't appear to be started. I also don't have pulseaudio running. But I guess right now I don't want to take the trouble to switch over. Maybe another time.

There are a couple of errors.
* You are already aware that no output can be selected for a stream anymore (I can only
select disconnect/kill)
* Add mixer button does not do anything
* Veromix does not live in the systray, only
on the task bar
* what is that tiny button at the right bottom?
It does not seem to do anything
* after some fiddling options for a sink are not
visible anymore, so I need pavucontrol to set
e.g. USB audio device to stereo output plus mono input.

All this from five minutes playing with it...
How did you test this?

> * what is that tiny button at the right bottom? It does not seem to do anything

Most probably "swh-plugins" is not installed on your system... (see requirements).

Hello.
I do not think having those problems you mentioned on Kubuntu 11.04 - KDE 4.7.0(you are using 11.10 beta1). The only problem I have is with the graphic equalizer, where the settings are reset to default values ā€‹ā€‹often. Besides some problems moving the EQ buttons (does not work fluid). I guess being the equalizer a new feature, still lacks work and surely nik3nt3 is already working on it.
(swh-plugins, plasma-scriptengine-python are requirements in Kubuntu)
Bye, and thanks to nik3nt3.

When I reboot my computer, the plasmoid states "script initialization failed." But if I run
Quote:cd /usr/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/veromix-plasmoid; plasmoidviewer
in terminal, it works fine. And when I put the plasmoid on the desktop normally it works. But then on reboot it doesn't work again.

(I installed it via the arch linux AUR)
