    Re: mythflix cover images not showing

    SOLVED:

    I found a changeset that takes care of html in movie descriptions. Now that I've figured these issues out, is there a way I can submit this for inclusion in an ubuntu update? Basically everything but viewing what's in your queue is broken in the package that's currently in the repos.


    If you want to do this yourself:
    Don't even think about doing this unless you are already comfortable compiling from source. I offer no support for this process.

    For Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon:

    Make sure you enable downloading of source in your sources list. I used synaptic to do this:
    Settings --> Repositories --> "Ubuntu Software" tab --> check the "Source Code" box

    Download the plugin source (ubuntu diffs will be automatically applied):
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    apt-get source mythflix
    Step up three directories to the mythflix source:
    Code:
    cd mythplugins-0.20.2/mythflix/mythflix
    There are three files you will be patching, mythflix.cpp, mythflixqueue.cpp, and in the scripts directory: netflix.pl

    Changesets:
    Fix for "Move to Top of Queue": http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3894
    Fix for Adding a movie to Queue: http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3576
    Fix for Images not Downloading: http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3891
    Fix for Image HTML in descriptions: http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3888

    Download all of the .diff files from the four changesets and apply them using patch. Here is an example of what I ran (my .diff files were located in ~/compile/patches):
    Code:
    patch mythflix.cpp ~/compile/patches/mythflix.cpp.imageFix.diff
    You should apply 3 patches to mythflix.cpp, 3 to mythflixqueue.cpp and 1 to netflix.pl

    Time to compile: (from the mythplugins-2.20.2 directory)
    Code:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-all --enable-mythflix
    qmake PREFIX=/usr mythplugins.pro
    make
    sudo make install
    Reboot for good measure and you should be all fixed up.

    If there are better practices that I could have used I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

    This did not work for me as the compile failed requesting source for mythtv.


    I had to ...

    sudo apt-get source mythtv

    to download the source for mythtv.

    I then created a directory....

    mkdir mythplugins-0.20.2/mythflix/mythtv

    and copied the required files.
    cp mythtv-0.20.2/libs/libmyth/* mythplugins-0.20.2/mythflix/mythtv

    and the directory.

    cp mythtv-0.20.2/libs/libmythui /mythplugins-0.20.2/mythflix/mythtv


    Time to compile: (from the mythplugins-2.20.2 directory)
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-all --enable-mythflix
    qmake PREFIX=/usr mythplugins.pro
    make
    sudo make install

    and then copied the compiled binary to the required directory (probably a good idea to back up the original just in case)

    sudo cp mythplugins-0.20.2/mythflix/mythflix/libmythflix.so /usr/lib/mythtv/plugins/

    Work for me, did not even need to reboot.

    Re: mythflix cover images not showing

    Has this problem been addressed in Hardy yet? I have mythplugins-0.21.0+fixes16838 and, although the descriptions and pictures are showing up just fine, none of the Queue editing commands (add to queue, move to top of queue, and remove from queue) are working. I tried following the steps given here for my version of mythplugins (it was a long shot, but I though I'd give it a chance), and when applying the patch that is supposed to fix "move to top of queue" I received the error:

    patching file mythflix/mythflix/mythflix.cpp
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 416.
    Hunk #2 FAILED at 450.
    2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file mythflix/mythflix/mythflix.cpp.rej

    I went ahead and compiled and installed the new version anyway, but there was no change.
