Much time has passed since i wrote my previous blog post about Kubeplayer. Things doesn’t change so much, but nowadays Kubeplayer is quite stable and doesn’t crash anymore.
After a lot of difficulties I got Kubeplayer packaged for opensuse. It’s ready to install with only one click in the case you are using openSuSE 11.4—thanks to the open build service.
If you want to turn your ExoPC into a Youtube-Player, too, here is the way to go:
That was the easy part. The rest is quite hard, due to the fact, that I didn’t found the ruby KDE language bindings. So maybe it is easier to use the opensuse based Plasma Active Installation.
Because the KDE Plasma Active team doesn’t seem to use KDE vanilla and there might be some other reasons, too, it is quite hard to do that. I had to monkey patch (commenting) a lot of files.
The installation of Kubeplayer is again quite simple, as you don’t have to build anything, but to meet the conventions, you can use
cmake to copy the files to the right place. By now, the Kubeplayer repo is in playground.
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kubeplayer cd kubeplayer git checkout -t -b tablet origin/tablet cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr make # nothing happens sudo make install
There are plenty different tasks yet to do:
