Fedsetupguides, Fedy

Hi again,

Having my fresh 26 WS I went to the Fed Set-Up Guides and installed the Gnome Tweak Tools.

Then I went to:
"Fedy - Works with both F25 and F26. A modular and scriptable utility to install codecs and proprietary software, add & manage repos and much more, also saves downloaded files. This will download the script. You then have to open a terminal, "cd" to your downloaded location. Next, "su" as root and type "chmod +x fedy-installer", followed by "./fedy-installer" . That should install Fedy and the necessary repos. Finally, exit root temporarily and type "fedy" to give you a GUI with plenty of handy codecs."

From my terminal:

[jeb@localhost ~]$ cd
jeb@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost jeb]# chmod +x fedy-installer ./fedy-installer
chmod: cannot access 'fedy-installer': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access './fedy-installer': No such file or directory
[root@localhost jeb]#

Perhaps the problem is my interpretation of the sequence in the description as exemplified by my terminal entries.

jeb

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

Just click on "Fedy" on "Fedora Set-Up Guides" page.
When you do so, you're getting to:
https://www.folkswithhats.org/

Quote:
To install Fedy in Fedora, open a Terminal and run the following command:
sudo sh -c 'curl https://www.folkswithhats.org/installer | bash'
It installs folkswithhats repo and fedy and ...

Find Fedy in desktop menu ...

Good luck.

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

Thanks thom12. And Jeb, yeah those instructions were initially provided by Fedy back when F25 was released and need to be updated a bit now. I'll change it.

Hi thom,

I went thru the Install Fedy and thinking everything must be OK, there were items online to be filed.

Trying downloaded videos, the message on the black screen was Need MPEG-4AAC decoder and H.264(Main Profile) decoder.


Finding Fedy on the desktop and going thru all of headings, I found nothing relating to decoders.

I assume Youtube is involved; what needs to be done?

Hopefully,
jeb

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

To install more media progs (fx mplayer) install rpmfusion repos.

dnf -y install --nogpgcheck \
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm \
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

May be you install mplayer, xine, vlc.

Fx:
dnf install mplayer mplayer-gui mencoder
dnf install xine xine-lib-extras xine-lib-extras-freeworld
dnf install vlc

codecs:
dnf install faac # faac for MPEG-4AAC
dnf install x264 x264-libs # for H264

I prefer to install handish.
If you use it, Fedy installs gstreamer packages. Your choice.

Hi Thom, thanks for your response.

I entered: dnf -y install --nogpgcheck \
and got:

dnf install: error: the following arguments are required: PACKAGE

I'm at a loss; apparently there's a prior step I missed.

BTW, my video needs are basic; I just play downloads. Which would you recommend for that purpose, handish or gstreamer?

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

OOPS! My error! Apparently when adding the Set-Up Guides for F26, I dropped the instructions for RPMFusion. If you'll go back to the Set-Up Guides, I've added the link now. Hope that will assist you.

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

Should have written that it is a one-liner:

Code:
dnf -y install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
Got to copy and past it it in one step to a command line.

As su or sudo:

sudo dnf ...

If a one-liner is broken into parts, "\" is used at the end of each part to avoid a newline.

One can copy and paste these 3 lines to the command line and bash reads it as a one-liner (because of the "\" at the end of each part-line)
Sorry.

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

I recommend vlc. Plays almost everything.

Install it handish ("by hand") - without using Fedy.

Use dnf on the command line instead.

No big deal Thom,

I broke it down to:
dnf-y install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$ \
(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$ \
(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm \
and twice got:
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
[root@localhost jeb]#

After the 1st time I shifted the line breaks so that the parentheses were complete on the same line, no luck.

Can I assume that "dnf vlc" will be successful after the above problem is solved?

Again, thanks for your help,
jeb

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

To install rpmfusion repos go to:

https://rpmfusion.org/Configuration
Quote:
Command Line Setup using rpm

To enable access to both the free and the nonfree repository use the following command:

Fedora 22 and later:

Code:
sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
You broke it the wrong way.
--The line-continuation will fail if you have whitespace (spaces or tab characters) after the backslash and before the newline. With no such whitespace, the code works fine for me. No whitespace after the backslash!

--Don't insert whitespaces into the command where they don't belong - bash remarks an error because of the <space> ahead of the backslash. Bash expands the code to
Code:
...release-$ (rpm...
But the original code is
Code:
...release-$(rpm...
--Maybe you noticed that the backslash in "\" did not show up in your post in normal text mode. I suppose you have to write
Code:
"\\"
if you are in normal text mode.

In my post i wrote literally <space><backslash>.

and

can easily be corrected by removing the space ahead of the backslash and the last space and backslash: there is no breakpoint here. And of course you should add sudo ... And a <space> between dnf and "-y" ...
Your code should look like this:

(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$\
(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
If you brake a long commandline it is only a backslash that informs bash about a line-continuation. If you add a leading <space> to the backslash, bash adds it to the code. At this place there is no <space> in the original code. And thus bash immediately finds out that this is a coding-syntax error.

To avoid show-up problems in normal text mode use wrapping-mode for code.
It is the "#" symbol: "Wrap [CODE] tags around selected text".
In the wrapped text you can write as on the command line:
Code:
"\"
You could verify the code draft by using echo "<your code>" and you see how it will be expanded.

Quote:
echo "\

(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$\
(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm"
gives you:

Code:
sudo dnf -y install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-26.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-26.noarch.rpm
And this is what we expected.

Sorry that it's so tricky.
Let's go back to your main problem instead.


Please copy and paste the installation command from rpmfusion.org to a terminal/console at the prompt in one piece to avoid further mistakes.
When you enter a long command into the Terminal window that you found on the web or in a document, you can save yourself some time by easily copying and pasting the command at the prompt.

Position the cursor at the beginning of the text you want to cut/copy.
Select the whole text you want to copy and press Ctrl-c.
Move the cursor the prompt and paste the selected text by pressing Ctrl-v.
The text is pasted.

Press enter. (I assume that you did setup sudo once ...)

Rpmfusion repos should install flawlessly now.

Then install vlc.

Code:
sudo dnf install vlc

Hi Thom,

I ran the full-length sudo dnf install https://download1--- successfully and sudo dnf install vlc.

Vlc showed a warning after d/l packages: “ /var/cache/dnf/rpmfusion-free-updates-326d941b38a63deb/packages/vlc-3.0.0-0.35.git20170922.fc26.x86_64.rpm: Header V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 9690e4af: NOKEY”, but at the end did say: “Complete!”

Checking via video .flv and .mp4 files; with each I got got popup stating MPEG-4AAC and H.264 codecs were needed.

I then attempted:
[jeb@localhost ~]$ dnf install MPEG-4AAC
Error: This command has to be run under the root user.
[jeb@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost jeb]# dnf install MPEG-4AAC
Last metadata expiration check: 2:35:17 ago on Sat 30 Sep 2017 09:24:47 AM +07.
No package MPEG-4AAC available.
Error: Unable to find a match
[root@localhost jeb]#
[root@localhost jeb]# dnf install H.264

No package H.264 available.
Error: Unable to find a match
[root@localhost jeb]#

Remembering your comment about checking Fedy on the desktop, I went there. I came up empty after looking at every subset; nothing relating to codecs.

Next step? 8~)
jeb

Thanks for the coding tips(saved).

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

As alreadfy stated in Post #6 you could install:

Code:
sudo dnf install faac faad2 faad2-libs x264 x264-libs h264enc ffmpeg
where faac is for encoding to MPEG-4AAC
where faad2 is for decoding MPEG-4AAC
where x264 gets you codecs for h.264
To get info about the packages:
fx
Code:
dnf info h264enc
HTML Code:
dnf info <packagename>
h264 is a proprietary patented video codec. So you to have purchase the rights. But luckily there is opensource codec/package x264 to play this.

You may also be interested in what gives you info's about a media-file
Code:
dnf info mediainfo
sudo dnf install mediainfo-gui mediainfo


Mplayer
HTML Code:
dnf info mplayer
If you want to install mplayer you may install as well:
codecs:
read this: https://www.mjmwired.net/resources/m...l#binarycodecs

Then in a terminal/console:

cd <yourusername>/Downloads
or
Code:
cd $HOME/Downloads

wget -c http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20110131.tar.bz2

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/codecs

sudo tar -jxvf all-20110131.tar.bz2 --strip-components 1 -C /usr/lib/codecs/
Hope you can watch media/films ...

where faad2 is for decoding MPEG-4AAC
where x264 gets you codecs for h.264
To get info about the packages:
fx
Code:
dnf info h264enc
HTML Code:
dnf info <packagename>
h264 is a proprietary patented video codec. So you to have purchase the rights. But luckily there is opensource codec/package x264 to play this.

You may also be interested in what gives you info's about a media-file
Code:
dnf info mediainfo
sudo dnf install mediainfo-gui mediainfo


Mplayer
HTML Code:
dnf info mplayer
If you want to install mplayer you may install as well:
codecs:
read this: https://www.mjmwired.net/resources/m...l#binarycodecs

Then in a terminal/console:

cd <yourusername>/Downloads
or
Code:
cd $HOME/Downloads

wget -c http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20110131.tar.bz2

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/codecs

sudo tar -jxvf all-20110131.tar.bz2 --strip-components 1 -C /usr/lib/codecs/
Hope you can watch media/films ...
Hi Thom

Taking your advice, I went to command line with:
sudo dnf install faac faad2 faad2-libs x264 x264-libs h264enc ffmpeg

[jeb@localhost ~]$ sudo dnf install faac faad2 faad2-libs x264 x264-libs h264enc ffmpeg

Complete!

Attempting .MP4s from 2 different sources the popup still says MPEG=4AAC and H.264 are not installed.

However .flv changed the popup to MPEG-1 Layer 3 and Ou2 VP6/Flash not installed.

My impression was x264 avoided the proprietary problem.

Copy-paste is certainly a time-saver, but I’m at a loss.
