For some reason when I just went to record what happens, it activated! Good to go now, thanks.

Strange. I guess you can ignore the i386 packages warning then as it's not particularly relevant to your amd64 machine.

Maybe setting arch=amd64 will make the warning go away:

Code: Select all

deb [arch=amd64] https://get.filebot.net/deb/ stable main

Strange. Could have been temporary server-side issues, though I don't see anything odd in the logs. If something doesn't work in the future, and there's an error, message, just make a quick screenshot so we see what's going on and troubleshoot.

I am wondering how to add a leading 0 to the season using 1x01 naming format to come out as 01x01? Simply adding a 0 in front of the expression will not work as season 10 would show as season 010.


EDIT:
I found it on my own :? :

Code: Select all

I think my license was blocked by outlook. Is there anyway to resend it to a gmail account?

How long does it take to receive the emails?
I purchased through PayPal and have yet to receive any emails regarding my license.

Nevermind, I see and have replied in the other thread reagrding the slow license issue rollout.

Good evening, first of all, congratulations for this superb program which has greatly facilitated my daily life.
however I have a problem, I bought filebot on the microsoft store under windows 10 (directly activated after installation) on March 28th and I would like to install filebot also on my mac (macosx), but apart from a microsoft email with the invoice of my purchase, I have no trace of any email with a license.
Could you do something, please?

Thank you in advance

Is there a particular repo for the CLI tool only? I'm running into an issue with the snap in Ubuntu 18.04 so I was hoping to try a different image.

There is no repository for headless FileBot only. But does it matter? Are you worried about disk space?

If I just want to use the Filebot CLI does that still require a paid license?

Yes. For the sake of simplicity, any and all versions on all platforms for all use cases now require the same universal license.

Does 4.8.2 on Debian require Java 10 the same as the windows version? I'm using OpenJDK on my server and don't really want to install another runtime. Would 4.7.9 be the best option here?

The DEB package includes it's own private JRE so it does not require you to install any specific version of Java on your system.

Re: [Anime] Convert Absolute to SxE numbers

Post by iAmKoinu »

Hi there! Loving the program, just wanted to know if you planned on making this code customizable? I don't keep my episodes in the "SxE" format, and while i do know that I can just easily rename it to my liking with the preset I already have, it would be really nice to be able to convert absolute to my preferred naming scheme in one go!

Thanks for all your hard work! :D

Re: [Anime] Convert Absolute to SxE numbers

Post by rednoah »

Yes, should be pretty straight forward. What's not working? Where are you stuck?

e.g. convert Absolute to SxE in one go using your format:

Code: Select all

filebot -rename "One Piece 501.avi" --db TheTVDB --order Absolute --format "{n}.{y}.{order.airdate.s00e00}.#{absolute}.{t}.[{airdate}]" -non-strict

Hey, long time user here (just bought a lifetime license - although have donated before and also was a part of the patreon thing until it went no where)...

Just installed via APT and noticed a few odd quirks...

You're probably best not telling people to use --install-suggests. Mostly because a) 'recommends' would be a better fit and b) using --install-suggests is recursive, so you end up with a whole Web server (in my case apache2) being installed just because you installed FileBot :)...

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~/Downloads$ aptitude why apache2
i   filebot           Suggests   ffmpeg                                
i A ffmpeg            Suggests   ffmpeg-doc                            
i A ffmpeg-doc        Depends    libjs-jquery                          
i A libjs-jquery      Recommends javascript-common                     
i A javascript-common Suggests   apache2 (>= 2.4.6~) | lighttpd | httpd
Also in your last post to this thread you said the JRE is built in, if that is the case - why is it on the suggests list? (which is currently... openjdk-10-jre openjfx mediainfo libchromaprint-tools)

Perhaps a better apt-get line would be simply...

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get -y install openjfx mediainfo libchromaprint-tools filebot
Or instead make openjfx, mediainfo and libchromaprint-tools to be 'recommends' instead. Most desktop users are used to extra stuff being pulled in via recommends, whilst server administrators (I do this on my Debian boxes) turn off automatically installing recommends as a matter of course.

Thanks for all the hard work :)

Steven

p.s. more info on Debian policy for using suggests/recommends can be found here... https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-polic ... re-depends

Well, that definitely sucks...

Due to the changes in JDK 11 (i.e. no more Oracle JRE with JavaFX built-in) there's no point to do this on Linux in the future. Is there a working OpenJFX 11 package in the Debian repository already?

Quite possibly. If Recommends is indeed pulled automatically on Desktop Linux machines, then it makes sense to do:

Code: Select all

Depends: <stuff required for the CLI>
Recommends: <stuff required for the GUI only>
Does that sound reasonable?

Re: [DEB] Debian package

If I think I understand you correct, both Debian and Ubuntu have openjfx as it's own package...

http://packages.debian.org/openjfx (which is OpenJFX v8 in Debian 9 - the latest stable version, but it'll be v11 in the next version of Debian)
http://packages.ubuntu.com/openjfx (again it is v8 in Ubuntu 18.04 - the latest long term version that I use, but its v11 in Ubuntu 18.10 and it'll be v11 in 19.04)

I wouldn't be able to say one way or the other how this affects FileBot as I'm not too familiar with the JFX bit.

Your "DEBIAN/control" file in the package could simply change this one line...

Code: Select all

Suggests: openjdk-10-jre, openjfx, xdg-utils, ffmpeg, mediainfo, libchromaprint-tools
For...

Code: Select all

Recommends: openjdk-10-jre, openjfx, xdg-utils, ffmpeg, mediainfo, libchromaprint-tools
I wouldn't specify any "Depends: " unless any of those packages are critical for the core functionality of FileBot to operate normally.
If 100% of those additional packages are optional, then they need to be "Recommends: "

This is fine as *all* Debian-derived distributions I've ever encountered (BOTH servers and desktops) all install recommended packages by default.

It's only certain server-admins (like me) that manually make it system-wide policy not to install recommends on server - just so that we can see what they'd be and choose to install them after if needed to lower the security footprint of the server.

If you do make the above change, remember that in your deb.sh file you can change...

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install filebot --install-suggests
To simply be...

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install filebot
As for the idea about CLI usage vs GUI usage. Most packages I've seen usually have a 'filebot-cli' and a 'filebot' (or filebot-gtk, filebot-ui, etc...). Essentially the 2nd package (the ui one) makes 'filebot-cli' a dependency of itself. That might be one possible thought?

But depends vs recommends vs suggests - this hasn't really got anything to do with purpose such as cli vs gui

Re: [DEB] Debian package

Post by rednoah »

FileBot 4.8.5 is now in BETA and a new Debian package is available for testing here:
https://get.filebot.net/filebot/FileBot_4.8.5/

:?: Feedback is welcome.

The new Debian package is now platform-independent and can work an any architecture, but that means that all native code is handled via APT dependencies, i.e. OpenJDK 11 and OpenJFX 11 is now required.

:!: You may need the latest version of Ubuntu, since older LTS releases will give you OpenJFX 8 and not OpenJFX 11 if you do apt install openjfx.

Not tested this package yet - but after reading what you've wrote... this sounds like a step backwards!

Nobody in their right mind runs a non-LTS version of Ubuntu unless they're prepared to deal with the unforeseen consequences of something that...
a) only got knocked up because it happened to be either the month of April or October in a year - and not because it was actually ready or properly tested.
b) only gets support for 9 months.

It's more like a preview release in my mind - not really like bi-annual Windows 10 update... as with a non-LTS Ubuntu *every* package version changes breaking the ability to use many 3rd party bits of software which are not ready for it.

Most people (like me) who use Ubuntu in a production environment (personally for me that is definitely my place of work, but also at home as I don't want to be fixing bugs all day) will use whatever the latest LTS is (usually about 4 months after it came out to let the dust settle) and in the case of 18.04 it'll be supported until April 2023 - but most will switch to 20.04 at around August 2020 (4 months after the release of 20.04).

Please don't make this only usable on (in my opinion) non-stable Ubuntu versions only - and especially on Debian 10 only, as that thing is definitely not stable!
