Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

yeah, make Chromium not appear in the list is a good workaround, but that's not what I wanted to do since you were experiencing the same problem (so that means I'm really not the only one!) can I ask you more details about your setup? I'd like to know which Linux Mint version you're running. And if ...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

Oh.
Well, thanks for the tests.
Whatever it is, good if it's gone from the next version.

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

Would it be asking you too much to try with Vivaldi? The problem might come from their specific implementation (but the effect anyway is that Cinnamon, and not Vivaldi, crashes... :? )

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

so I think what's above it's enough to file a bug report, if this is confirmed happening also on a up-to-date Mint 19 with Vivaldi and Rhythmbox, right?

Can anyone try on his set up and see if this still happens? :?

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

OK, I finally found a way to reproduce the problem 100% of the times, and even don't need to have any waiting (because I found out what I had missed...) - first you need to have Rhythmbox open (playing something or not seems unimportant - but let's play something anyway) - then open Chromium (I'm on...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

No luck so far. :( Though that commit you pointed out seemed very relevant, unfortunately I experienced again a Cinnamon crash yesterday evening :evil: (yes, I had copied and edited the file in the morning and turned off the PC for lunch so I believe in the afternoon the updated code was running...)...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

That commit you pointed out seems interesting! So, after I had copied the whole sound@cinnamon.org directory into ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets and having edited the applet.js file, what should I do to make that change effective? A cinnamon restart I guess... how can I then double check and be sur...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

in the while I found this workaround: make Chromium not appear in the list.
chrome://flags/#enable-media-session-service -> set to Disable

but I'd like to find the root cause of the crash and hopefully fix it (myself, with your help)

Where to start? :roll:

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

OK, now I (sort of) know how to reproduce it. First of all, it doesn't depend if Rhythmbox is playing or not. Then, you need both Rhythmbox and Chromium (I'm using Vivaldi browser) open. Check if the sound applet shows both in the 'Choose player controls'. Don't close any of the two programs (or swi...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

OK now it's getting ridiculous - I just crashed Cinnamon by swapping player controls TO Chromium too, not only to Rhythmbox. This is the usual ~/.xsession-errors $ tail -100 .xsession-errors [3109:3109:0131/104445.531714:ERROR:shared_image_manager.cc(120)] SharedImageManager::ProduceGLTexture: Tryin...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

It did it again one minute ago. The only difference is that this time the music was playing, so we can add that we don't need the player to be stopped for the bug to happen. Last 100 lines of ~/.xsession-errors ... hopefully there's something interesting here this time. :roll: $ tail -100 .xsession-...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

I mean that Cinnamon crashed when using "Choose player controls" to select Rhythmbox from sound applet.

Not sure why last block in .xsession-errors file is from nm-applet though :(

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

it just happened again, while switching to Rhythmbox controls, as the other times. Here's what I got into the .xsession-errors $ tail -100 .xsession-errors [2363:2363:0127/140820.932073:ERROR:CONSOLE(0)] "Unchecked runtime.lastError: The message port closed before a response was received.", source: ...

Re: experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

Yeah, I can't reproduce it either. I probably need some information on where to look next time it happens. I mean, does Cinnamon have a crash log? Or are there system files that I can check to see what just happened? FWIW I have also Brasero, gtkpod, Media Player and VLC installed too, but I seldom ...

experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet

As per the topic subject, I'm experiencing Cinnamon crash when using "Choose player controls" from sound applet. What makes that difficult to address is that I can't reproduce that easily. It just happen sometimes . From memory I'd say this likely happened ONLY when switching controls TO Rhythmbox A...

Re: Rhythmbox & Power Management

well, it didn't worked immediately, as I had copied a text file instead of the actual compiled plugin, the file extension confused me :oops: :lol: :shock: :roll: I fixed the previous post accordingly. Seems to work correctly. Screen (and thus audio) doesn't turn off while I'm listening to music. Can...

Re: Rhythmbox & Power Management

OK so you need to - "enable source code repositories" in Software Sources, rebuild the caches - issue sudo apt-get build-dep rhythmbox - wait for all the dependencies to get installed - download and uncompress sources (I got 3.3 from here: https://download.gnome.org/sources/rhythmbox/3.3/ ) - enter ...

Re: Rhythmbox & Power Management

I found out the power-manager Rhythmbox plugin in fact keeps the laptop/PC from going into suspend mode if music is playing, but it can still go idle so screen savers and such can kick in, which is what I don't want to happen. So I need to modify it so that I can inhibit idle instead of suspend. I d...
