GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 406739
Cannot edit audio profiles from sound-juicer pref dialog
Last modified: 2007-06-10 10:05:43 UTC
That bug has been opened on https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sound-juicer/+bug/84007
"Binary package hint: sound-juicer
1. Open Sound Juicer Preferences and click Edit profiles
2. Choose some profile and click Edit
3. Try to edit it. It is impossible.
4. Find the "Edit GNOME Audio Profiles" in the task bar.
5. Close that window.
6. Go again to the window "Editing profile XXX" and edit the profile. Now you can.
I am using version 2.16.3 in unstable Ubuntu Feisty.
This bug is confirmed on my Sony Vaio Laptop with Feisty. Not even editing the profiles is impossible, but also trying to close any of the three open sound-juicer windows afterwards. So the only way that remains is to look for the running sound-juicer process in the console (ps ax | grep sound-juicer) and kill it manually (sudo kill XXXX). Not a very nice solution! But the above mentioned workaround with editing the Gnome audio settings via the console (gnome-audio-profiles-properties) works fine!"
Obviously, it would be too easy if you could reproduce the bug in the test application. Currently, it's broken for sound-juicer and rhythmbox, but not gnome-audio-profiles-test.
Matthias pointed out that the problem is that the top "Edit" window is modal (for no reason whatsoever, can't find what makes it that way).

Fixes the problem for Rhythmbox and sound-juicer
Downstream bug at:
is there a reason to remove manage_dialog() as part of this patch? Does that break API (it appears to be public)?

It's unused and isn't exported anywhere in the headers.
Fair enough then. Thanks!

Make the edit dialogues modal so that they are editable in
sound-juicer and Rhythmbox, remove an unused and unexported
function (Closes: #406739)
Don't know if it is related to that bug, but once you mark a profile as active in gnome-audio-profiles-properties (for example, mp3), it stays unavailable in soundjuicer or rhythmbox.
You need to restart them - there's another bug to make it instant-apply but I'm considering just trashing that work and going with Aaron's work instead.
It doesn't work here, even if I log out / log in gnome, the mp3 profile is never available. Whether it is the default mp3 profile or another I made, it doesn't work. The other profiles (ogg, aac, ...), I can enable/disable them without problems :| ??? (all the gstreamer plugins are installed by the way)

One of the plugins listed in your MP3 profile doesn't exist. Check with gst-inspect-0.10 <name of plugin>. Please don't add any more unrelated entries to this bugzilla.
Oh, then you don't have one of the plugins in your pipeline, most likely the lame plugin.
