IANAL either but isn't that a hypothetical issue? what about software named like lsp-plugins(linux studio plugins), linuxsampler, I've never heard a concern like that for those (didn't search actively either)
fpesari's motivation to ask might be that he's part of the GeekosDAW project, trying to unite efforts in packaging ProAudio software for openSUSE
I'm also taking part there, and have created a linux-show-player rpm package from 0.6.0dev

we still don't have proper communication channels beyond private mail and open build service submitrequests, so I haven't talked a lot to him or other project members, I just got invited to be part of it because I have made and/or maintained quite some multimedia stuff in the past
stuff meaning packages, not writing applications or something

I've never received an answer after submitting the request, aaand kind of forgot about it. I'll write an email to their dedicated inbox for some clarifications. Their "do you need a sublicense?" it's a bit confusing, at least when I apply my concept of "trademark", and some of the required information in the request don't make much sense for LiSP.

I'm currently considering to switch to the 0.6 version in our productions. How many people are already using it? How is the general state?
I can mostly live with "weirdnesses" (e.g. display glitches, UI bugs, edit thingy x behaves weird sometimes), as long as it remains usable (no crashes, no dropouts etc)
We're not using it very often, most events are live music. We had two shows with 2 or 5 cues (nothing special) recently, but I know there are two theatre plays / musicals planned, and I'd like to make the decision early.

@otto_richter:matrix.tu-berlin.de I use it since 2 years, but not very often; generally i found it stable enough to never think of going back (it can't read 0.5. show files though, IIRC). But you'll remember we talked in january about the few and rather rare problems I had with individual sound cues staying silent during a theater piece, but playing perfectly at a second try after the show...something i haven't been able to reproduce in a consistant way so I cannot claim itÄs a bug and not user error...
I rather work with QLCPlus these days as I'm the lighting guy in our theater

Speaking personally, I've been using 0.6 since at least late-2018; and started doing so because I wanted to create a plugin to provide functionality I desired and - considering that the internals are substantially different between the two versions - didn't want to end up having to vastly rewrite it when 0.6 was eventually promoted to master.

I transitioned to using 0.6 fairly quickly, so don't have much experience with 0.5 to compare with; however I do sometimes "revert" briefly so as to aid the debugging of issues raised by other users, and find that of the two the UI of 0.6 is better. Certainly less monochromatic! I also don't think 0.6 (in its current state, anyway) is any more prone to crashing than 0.5 is; and 0.6 is certainly better featured.

It is worth noting that quite a few of the issues raised and feature requests made against 0.5 over the past couple of years can be resolved by using 0.6 instead (which is where the lack of cross-compatibility with regards to show-files is unfortunate).

That said: 0.6 is the current edge of development of the software; so there is some level of inherent instability in the fact that the code changes every so often - sometimes causing config files to be reset to defaults, and sometimes breakage in functionality. (Though this can be mitigated by only updating to the latest 0.6 state when safe: e.g. at the start of rehearsals, and not right before a performance...)

okay I see. Well, if 0.6 is somewhat stable, I'd propose to suggest users to use it and improve in smaller iterations. Reducing breaking changes and improving showfile compatibility is of course necessary then.

Hi. LiSP is a great product, and I have been using it in amateur drama for a few years. I now have issues with Ubuntu 22.04 as it tell me that the backend is not loaded when I try to create a media cue. Is this a known issue?

Hi! Which version are you using? Can you run it from the command line linux-show-player --log debug and post the output?
John Clegg
@johndclegg_twitter
Many thanks for your reply. I have most recently tried 0.5.2 AppImage. I have now installed 0.5.2 from the repository and on start it gives an error saying it couldn't start. Debug log is Traceback (most recent call last):

Appears to be the same issue as reported in #238.

Hello,
I just switched to Linux Mint 21 and after installing linux show player, nothing happens when I click on it to run it.
Do you have any advice for me?
otto_richter
@otto_richter:matrix.tu-berlin.de
[m]
Can you run it in a terminal to provide some log output? Maybe it's a similar issue to one recently reported? How did oyu install LiSP?

well here is what works for me (it's ok, I got out of it ;-) :
it works with appimage 0.52
it doesn't work if you use the version that is available in the linux mint library or if you install it with the synaptic manager.
I have installed by hand the version 0.53 and it works fine.

Nice to hear you found a way around it. Well, sounds like it's a package problem then.

@real-woodworm
@otto_richter:matrix.tu-berlin.de When you run it from the AppImage do you get the same error that I do when trying to add an audio cue - "Backend not loaded"?

I do not get any errors

@zikos61:matrix.org Linux Mint 21 uses the Ubuntu 22.04 repositories, so would be expected to suffer the same issue. Good to know that the 0.5.3 version works for you.

@s0600204
As we seem to be getting more reports about this, I've taken the liberty of filing a bug report with Ubuntu (as having an out-of-date and broken package is something they need to resolve): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-show-player/+bug/1987073.
If you're affected by this, please consider indicating this by pressing the appropriate link on the page (you will need to login there to do so) - it's not a requirement, but should help them gauge how wide-spread the problem is. Also feel free to add any relevant context or comments.

I'm having an error on POP! Os running the appimage. When creating a media cue i get a "Backend not loaded" error...
