BTW: going back to matchbox let me see all of the the volume applet dialog box, which allowed me to fix my sound issue.
well we are all waiting for some more goodies! Wish I could help out, but i have to wait for my EAS from the military!
Continuing my efforts to get the *perfect* setup...
How do I integrate LIRC with NGhost? I use SWIX and LIRC to get steering wheel inputs into my system. Do I have LIRC send commands to mplayer? Or do I send them to pulseaudio? Suggestions....
BTW: Thanks for all the help
I have also been wondering this but am still fabricating my media controls. Except I have my multimedia controls soldered to a keyboard controller to emulate some keyboard strokes. I don't think nghost can be controlled though the keyboard which is my issue.
If I had steering wheel controls, I would write a plugin for nghost that listened for them (from lirc or the serial port or nobdy (from CAN)) and have the plugin control the player...
I'll bite -- where is the latest info on plugin development? I came across these two sites:
Anything more "up to date"?
Here's the plugin api itself: http://wiki.openice.org/index.php?ti...ost_plugin_api
The IPC documentation is fairly recent. Those are the commands that you throw on the queue from your plugin created from the link above.
Is there any reason why nghost would eat up close to 1Gig of memory? Because that's what seems to be happening on my box... I was rolling in my car, things were acting a little off -- but I still had tunes. Turned off car and got some grub -- then this. Please see here: http://pastebin.com/scT7Y3fz
I'd love some ideas on what could cause this...
