########################## # # # README for EasyTAG 2.1 # # # ########################## AUTHOR: ======= Jérôme Couderc E-mail: email@example.com Home Page: http://easytag.sourceforge.net http://sourceforge.net/project/?group_id=5216 DESCRIPTION: ============ EasyTAG is an utility for viewing and editing tags for MP3, MP2, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, Speex, MP4/AAC, MusePack, Monkey's Audio and WavPack files. Its simple and nice GTK2 interface makes tagging easier under GNU/Linux or Windows. FEATURES: ========= Currently EasyTAG supports the following: o View, edit, write tags of MP3, MP2 files (ID3 tag with pictures), FLAC files (FLAC Vorbis tag), Ogg Vorbis and Speex files (Ogg Vorbis tag), MP4/AAC (MP4/AAC tag), MusePack, Monkey's Audio and WavPack files (APE tag), o Can edit more tag fields : Title, Artist, Album, Disc Album, Year, Track Number, Genre, Comment, Composer, Original Artist/Performer, Copyright, URL and Encoder name, o Auto tagging: parse filename and directory to complete automatically the fields (using masks), o Ability to rename files and directories from the tag (using masks) or by loading a text file, o Process selected files of the selected directory, o Ability to browse subdirectories, o Recursion for tagging, removing, renaming, saving..., o Can set a field (artist, title,...) to all other selected files, o Read file header information (bitrate, time, ...) and display them, o Auto completion of the date if a partial is entered, o Undo and redo last changes, o Ability to process fields of tag and file name (convert letters into uppercase, downcase, ...), o Ability to open a directory or a file with an external program, o Remote and local CDDB support for manual or automatic search, o A tree based browser or a view by Artist & Album, o A list to select files, o A playlist generator window, o A file searching window, o Simple and explicit interface!, o Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Ukrainian translation languages, o Written in C and uses GTK+ 2 or GTK+ 3 for the GUI. INSTALLATION: ============= 1. Requirements : ================= - GLib version greater than 2.30.0 (http://www.gtk.org) - GTK+ version greater than 2.24.0 (http://www.gtk.org) - id3lib version highter than 3.7.12 (http://id3lib.sourceforge.net) (Recommended: id3lib-3.8.3) - libogg and libvorbis (http://www.vorbis.com) (if not deactivated by './configure --disable-ogg') - flac (http://flac.sourceforge.net) (if not deactivated by './configure --disable-flac') - taglib (http://taglib.github.com/) (if not deactivated by './configure --disable-mp4') - wavpack (http://www.wavpack.com/) (if not deactivated by './configure --disable-wavpack') - libc 6 (glibc 2.1) or greater - intltool (if not deactivated by './configure --disable-nls') 2. Compilation Instructions : ============================= 2.1. Before to compile EasyTAG you need to install some libraries. 2.1.1. To install id3lib : - recompile sources of id3lib (id3lib-3.x.x.tar.gz) (Recommended), - or install id3lib-3.x.x.i386.rpm and id3lib-devel-3.x.x.i386.rpm then run the command 'ldconfig' to update shared library symlinks. (Nota: to see if links have been updated, run the command 'ldconfig -p|grep libid3' if all is ok, it'll return lines like this : libid3.so (libc6) => /usr/lib/libid3.so libid3-3.8.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libid3-3.8.so.2 ) 2.1.2. To install libogg and libvorbis (http://www.vorbis.com) : Follow the same procedure as id3lib with the following packages : - http://fatpipe.vorbis.com/files/1.0/unix/libogg-1.0.tar.gz - http://fatpipe.vorbis.com/files/1.0/unix/libogg-1.0-1.i386.rpm - http://fatpipe.vorbis.com/files/1.0/unix/libogg-devel-1.0-1.i386.rpm - http://fatpipe.vorbis.com/files/1.0/unix/libvorbis-1.0.tar.gz - http://fatpipe.vorbis.com/files/1.0/unix/libvorbis-1.0-1.i386.rpm - http://fatpipe.vorbis.com/files/1.0/unix/libvorbis-devel-1.0-1.i386.rpm 2.1.3. To install flac (http://flac.sourceforge.net) : 2.1.4. To install taglib (http://taglib.github.com/) : 2.2. Unpack the sources of EasyTAG with > tar xfvz easytag-x.y.z.tar.gz (x.y.z represents the version of package, for example : 0.27.1) 2.3. Change into the new directory > cd easytag-x.y.z/ 2.4. Compile and install the program > ./configure > make # make install (You need root privileges) Notes : - If you want to compile EasyTAG with gcc3.x, you MUST install a version of id3lib compiled with the same version of the compiler. - If you have the both versions of gcc installed (2.9x and 3.x), use the command './configure CC=gcc3' for compiling with gcc3. You may now run the program by simply typing "easytag". (Of course the directory in which you installed it (usually /usr/local/bin) has to be in your PATH) 3. RPM Building Instructions (RedHat 6.x 7.x) : =============================================== If you prefer manipulate a RPM, you can build it with the following commands: 3.1. Build the RPM # rpm -tb easytag-x.y.z.tar.gz or # rpm --rebuild easytag-x.y.z.src.rpm or copy easytag-x.y.z.tar.gz into directory /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES, get easytag.spec into tarball, and run : # rpm -bb easytag.spec 3.2. If succeed, you will found the rpm in /usr/src/redhat/RPM/i386/ 4. RPM Building Instructions (RedHat 8.x 9) : ============================================= If you prefer manipulate a RPM, you can build it with the following commands: 4.1. Build the RPM # rpmbuild -tb easytag-x.y.z.tar.gz or # rpmbuild --rebuild easytag-x.y.z.src.rpm or copy easytag-x.y.z.tar.gz into directory /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES, get easytag.spec into tarball, and run: # rpmbuild -bb easytag.spec 4.2. If succeed, you will found the rpm in /usr/src/redhat/RPM/i386/ 5. Adding a new translation file to EasyTAG : ============================================= All catalogs are placed into po/ directory and are named as the following: fr.po for France, de.po for Germany, and so on. The catalogs which will be compiled with EasyTAG are set into configure.in file, into field ALL_LINGUAS. If you have created a new translation file for your location, and want to test it, add the corresponding code (xx for file xx.po) to this field. Then run the script: ./autogen.sh before to recompile program (see instructions of paragraph 2). 6. Applying a patch : ===================== 6.1. Unpack the sources (see 2.2), 6.2. Go into the directory where you unpack sources (the parent directory of easytag-x.y.z directory) 6.3. Put the patch file in this directory 6.4. Apply the patch: for example: > cat patch_easytag_027_027a.diff | patch -p0 (if patch file was named : patch_easytag_027_027a.diff) (Note: the pacth file (of above example) is a diff file made with command: diff -ruN easytag-0.27/ easytag-0.27a/ > patch_easytag_027_027a.diff in the directory where are locate easytag-0.4 and easytag-0.4a directories) 6.5. Recompile program (see 2.3 + 2.4). 7. Segfault occurs when running EasyTAG? : ========================================== The best way to allow us to fix the problem, is to send back a backtrace : 7.1. Be sure that core files are availables If 'ulimit -c' returns 0, then run the command 'ulimit -c unlimited' 7.2. Get the backtrace with 'gdb easytag core' (note that on some systems, the core file is suffixed by the pid. So use 'core._pid_number_' instead of only 'core'). > gdb easytag core._pid_number_ gdb> bt gdb> ... gdb> l gdb> ...
