User Reviews

  • Fxmoviemanager is perfect! Thanks.

  • I gave this thumbs-up because the idea is wonderful and it is the only application of it's kind I could find for ubuntu. But I was not able to build version 5.7: 1. Make will fail with the error "PlayerDialog.cpp:88:66: error: ‘loadPlayerFile’ was not declared in this scope". I could not solve this. 2. In the list of dependencies libavformat-dev should be mentioned. Only after Installing libavformat-dev will ./configure finish successfully. Also, the "download latest version link" is an old version (4.6 at the time of writing) that requires Fox-1.7 and installing fox-1.7 from source I've found difficult. The main problem being that the installation does not add a fox-config-1.7 file. I had to make it by copying the fox-config-1.6 file and then changing the version numbers by hand. And after all that 4.6 will not build because the header file fx.h is missing. I hope to see a version I can build soon! And I encourage the author to open up the bug-tracking list, I would have placed these comments there had I been allowed to.
