As of now, there are only 1 year licenses. Assuming that the current implementation works well, then I might start issuing licenses without expiration date around this time next year, for the price of around ~50 USD.

:idea: Though I'm inclined to make life-time licenses available on request for long-term supporters, so things get tested before any kind of larger-scale rollout.

Me? :lol: Like I'm quite sure it was Canonical that discontinued their Store and basically gave up on their Desktop story. It's unfortunate. I'm happy to personally reimburse you those $3 though. :lol:

This is a GTK message, and it's effectively just a warning message. If FileBot is indeed not working, then the cause is likely completely unrelated to this message.

You can get rid of this warning by installing canberra-gtk-module:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk3-module

This command will launch the GUI application, and since there's no error, I can only assume that FileBot was successfully launched:

Code: Select all

filebot
What exactly is not working? Are you trying to use the GUI? CLI? Does filebot -script fn:sysinfo work?

I’d be interested in being one of your test subjects for a lifetime licence. Let me know if I make your shortlist.

Installed these two extra packages but now when I start filebot I get that error:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~$ filebot 
[xcb] Unknown request in queue while dequeuing
[xcb] Most likely this is a multi-threaded client and XInitThreads has not been called
[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
java: ../../src/xcb_io.c :165 : dequeue_pending_request:  l'assertion « !xcb_xlib_unknown_req_in_deq » a échoué.
Aborted (core dumped)
[email protected]:~$ 
and then tried to start it from graphic and then it runs fine, very strange... but at least it looks to work for now so deleted the snap version I was previously using !

I've seen that before. Maybe a Gnome Shell bug? A reboot should fix the problem.

I just purchased the beta license and when I try to activate it I get,

Code: Select all

License Error: License Expired
I tried both on Linux and Windows.

Is it because of the timezone?

Please let me know.

Thanks

Mike

Sorry, there was something broken on the license server. Should be fixed now. Please clear the cache and try again.

Hello,

I am using filebot on my Mac. Now I wanted to use it on my Synology NAS
I have installed FileBot_4.8.2_noarch.spk from https://get.filebot.net/filebot/FileBot_4.8.2/
and
filebot-node-0.2.8-noarch.spk from https://github.com/filebot/filebot-node/releases

When I open filebot node I cannot config the format. I just see this:

http://www.bilder-upload.eu/show.php?fi ... 261047.png

What can i do?
How can i config the format, I think in the lower section is something missing.
I have installed the java, so this error is not there anymore

Cheers

Bigpoopa

So you're saying the web app doesn't render correctly in your browser? What browser are you using?

Been awhile since I had to install FileBot on my raspberrypi... Is this version now supported on Linux? Is there an up-to-date guide on how to install it? There was a lot of extra stuff that needed to be installed.. JNA, JAVA, MediaInfo.. etc... Is this still the case?

Yes. Same as always. You can get the generic Linux package, extract, run, look at the output and fix things as they come up. If you have java working, then it'll probably work out of the box.


Here's a helper script:

Code: Select all

sh -xu <<< "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/filebot/plugins/master/installer/tar.sh)"

Native dependencies such as JNA / MediaInfo / etc have always been optional. They're not required to run FileBot, but may be required depending on what you're doing.

I tried the script you posted and after running it, it says

Code: Select all

Since the packages are updated frequently these days, hash mismatches are expected. You can just skip that step.

Hi.

I am trying to purchase the yearly subscription, but when I press the link that pops up nothing happens. Any tips? This is on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS

Can you provide a screenshot of “nothing happens” please?

Like, what package are you using? SNAP or DEB or TAR? Does the purchase page not open? Or does the browser open but nothing loads? Or JavaScript errors? What browser are you using?

I use FileBot_4.8.2_amd64.deb. What happens is that when I press the purchase link the window containing the options of purchase and registering key just closes. Nothing happens in the browser. No new tabs. I have Firefox as default browser. If I press the register key option however, the expected window opens as it should and I can select the location of the key file.

I see. It should open a link in your browser, which I guess doesn't work on your particular distribution. It works on my Ubuntu 18.04 though. What Desktop environment are you using? Default Gnome Shell? Anything noteworthy to mention that might make your system significantly different from a fresh Ubuntu install?

What does the FileBot error log say, if anything? You can find the error log in your $HOME/.filebot folder.
