Does Subtitleeditor still crash when opening video file?

Hi

I used to use Subtitleeditor in another linux flavour and I like it.
Today I want to use it in my new Mint-Mate 16 kernel 3.11.0-12, Mate 1.6.1 box.
Version 0.40 crashes like others complain since 2012.
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... or#p713278

I installed ver 0.41.0-1 directly from UbuntuUpdates.org.
I had a look on gstreamermm >= 0.10.6.
I have libgstreamermm ver 0.10.11-ubuntu1
This should work but not when I open a video file it still crashes.

Do you have a fix?
Many thanks

Yesterday tried for first time and could not open a .sub file. Shortly after crashing the system went down. The second time system survived, but system performance severely affected.

Also tried to find same package, software manager couldn't find it, only found aegisub, but after install, program proper was missing. Was looking for gnome-subtitler as taken from Internet, but now at long last have correct package name gnome-subtitles :)

BTW anyone know where manual to be found or explanation on how to use gnome-subtitles?

Gnome Subtitles works fine.
But there is not feature like Waveform in Gnome-subtitle. Now I only use it, it's a way quicker and I can guess the position of the next sentence only looking at the wave. No more use of keypad to enter time, only the mouse.
This is really a huge improvement.

So I still want to find a fix for Subtitleeditor.

Thanks

After not finding gnome-subtitles yesterday, thought would search once more for Jumbler Subtitle Εditor, but with googling as well. Came up with Jubler Subtitle Εditor, yet another web misspelling :evil: V. easy to install, just need mplayer and interface not too difficult. :) Certainly solved my problem to do with downloaded '.sub' file {fr0}{fr1}, which VLC played time displaced. On loading '.sub' file, display showed time intervals, mplayer played perfectly, but now no longer get it as GUI, so could see no visible method of control. Anyway prefer VLC, so saved file as srt which VLC now plays fine.

P.S. Jubler also does wave forms, but not advanced enough to be able to test that straight away.

From the link you provided

This bug is fixed by the new upstream version 0.37.1. It's available in Ubuntu now.
Changed in subtitleeditor (Ubuntu):
status: New → Fix Released
This but it is from 2010 and I tried ver 0.40 and 0.41, it should be fixed.

Unreliable, annoying

The subtitle editing part works well, but it crashes when loading a video. I've been trying to use it for a few years now and on ALL MY COMPUTERS, on ALL UBUNTU INSTALLATIONS, be they old or fresh it ALWAYS CRASHES (with 1 or 2 exceptions)

UPDATE

Video File problem solved thru SubtitleEdit (incl. Waveform display).

Linux Mint 16 Petra

Download SE323Linux.zip to specifically created directory and unzip in said directory.

Code: Select all

apt  install --install-recommends mplayer 
apt  install --install-recommends mono-complete
apt  install --install-recommends libmono-winforms2.0-cil
Run(Alt+F2): mono /Path of Unzipped SubtitleEdit Directory/SubtitleEdit.exe

SubtitleEdit Installation Procedure Amendment

It appears that package mono-complete does not need to be installed, as the Mono with which Petra Cinammon already comes is sufficient for our purposes. So, just need:

Code: Select all

apt  install --install-recommends mplayer2
apt  install --install-recommends libmono-winforms2.0-cil
