Not yet. The version 1.0.8 has been done with gambas 3.4.0 - Apr 04 2013
It is currently built against the gambas3 version 3.2.0, using Kubuntu Precise as platform. There is already a 3.2.1 on Kubuntu, but I didn't upgraded yet. - Jul 30 2012
Hello,
I need more details:
1. What kind of distro are you using?
2. Does the problem persist if you try to create a new database?
3. What if you delete the folder ~/.GamCat and restart the program?
4. Are you trying to use the old databases (prior version 1.0) with the new release? In that case it probably wouldn't work. You should rather go over former releases, which are containing the required
compatibility scripts.
5. Could you send me some screenshots to my email:
minthaka@freemail.hu ? - Jul 30 2012
Thank you! I've fixed it. - Nov 18 2010
I can confirm your bug report. I can even explain why it does happen: when I do exactly what you've told me, the program hangs upon volume renaming, and I have to break program manually. Next time the program starts correctly, but when I want to add the same disk (with the same name), it crashes. But if I try to scan the same disk with a different name,there are no errors. That's because the table for the certain disk has been created during the first round of scan, and it looks like that the input dialog stops the execution of the scan process, and on next scanning trial with the same name it crashes, since the program cannot create a table which already exist, yet which isn't in the table which contains all the tables. I'll have to disable such possibilities. Please write me if any other situation of crash occurs! I'll rule them out. I never did rename and scan at once, so I never ran into this. Thank you! - Sep 15 2010
Can you just describe the issue in details?
I've added a new CD, while I was searching for a file, and there were no errors.
Was this error happening on upgrade to v. 0.0.54, I mean during the first run?
Anyway I'll check the process of scanning once again! - Sep 15 2010
I'll check the issue. - Sep 15 2010
That was a first run-script to detect your CD/DVD drives, to be used as sources. After that you'd have to add a name to be shown, and the program should start.

Your distro? - May 27 2010
I forgot to say, that the window can't be moved for now, that's not an error. I had no time to write the code for that! :) - May 27 2010
1. Please delete your ~/.GamCat folder , and restart the application. Turn off the scan for .rar archives. It have done a mess with your database, I'm sorry. I didn't encounter this error, since I'm very Linux oriented, and I'm using basically only ZIP and TAR.
Does this restart helped?

2. I found the error in the rar archive's algorythm. I made the corrections, so they will work in next release (next week or so)

Thank to your feedback. Gamcat is now over 15.000 lines of code, so it happens like this :( - May 27 2010
I suspect to the RAR archives. Try to switch the scan off and repeat the addition. - May 27 2010
And what if you turn off the scanning for the archives?

The most of the errors comes from special characters in filenames which are allowed, unfortunately. I'm speaking about ",!,',% which are not easy to use together with databases.

Still, since I've changed a lot in the program there can be errors. I'll try to fix it. - May 27 2010

Please describe me, how it doesn't work:
1. Do you have installed gambas2-gb-db-sqlite package?
2. Do you have sqlite3 installed on your system?
3. GamCat reads /etc/mtab for the mounted devices, and no fstab. - May 27 2010

If I red you correctly, you'd like to see an option to add comments/categories to the file? For example if you'd click on a file, you'd have options 'Add comment' and 'Add category'
, and after that you'd be able to search for a file inside a category?

I've fixed some errors, so the next release is going to be more useful. - May 26 2010
First of all, the WhereIsIt is an ATTEMPT, it isn't tested (I have no examples, I've done the import module based upon 1 or two exported databases in XML!) so I hope you've backuped your database before the attempt. It was planned to import database all at once.

For the RAR archives: GamCat utilizes the console line command:
unrar l "yourfile.rar"

Please try to check whether your unrar package gives back the content correctly in terminal. There are some difficulties with the Window - Linux passing over:
1. Character encoding. Maybe your system cannot recognize the correct characters.
2. Special characters and sqlite database. I think I'll check this part of the program. I've built in some basic character filtration to evade the program crash, so maybe some files are missing because of that.

Anyway, I'll try to fix it.
In new release there will be a new tab for MP3 files. I've already made download scripts for some lyric providers so it will be possible to store the lyrics together with the files.

Csaba - May 23 2010
I'm sorry, I've left some dependencies turned on after the development. They are not required at all. Please repeat the download and try it again. I've changed the files today, so they will work now for you. The translation is very easy. I've posted the translation file for Hungarian, and all you need is to replace the Hungarian terms, which are below the English original ones with Russian ones (please keep in mind the length of the text!), and to send me the file GamCat-ru-0.0.49.po, and in next release it will be available.

Please post me, whether it works on openSuse! I've never tried it on that distro. - Feb 18 2010
Please download the 'First aid kit',
extract to your home folder, and go into ~/.GamCat folder of your home folder.
There is a config.txt file in it.
Open it, and replace the lines with the ones you can find in /etc/mtab.
(you can do it as regular user with command:
kate /etc/mtab )
Search for lines similar to

/dev/sr1 /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,nosuid,nodev,utf8,user=minthaka 0 0

You only need the
/dev/sr1 part to be put into the config.txt.

Save the file, and start Gamcat.
hopefully that helps. - Jan 11 2010
Wait until monday, I'll upload a zipped directory structure, with an empty database, so you'll be able to extract into your home folder, and to skip the installation's misery, oh beauties of Linux! - Jan 08 2010
Can you post me the content of your /etc/mtab file?

As I told you, I never tested it on Fedora.

A better idea:

see where are mounted your DVD and CD drives, e.g.
/dev/dvd
/dev/cd

or similar.

Create a config file inside your /home/your/.GamCat folder, and put the corresponding lines inside the config file, and save it. Restart GamCat - Jan 07 2010
Please download the package again. I've uploaded the version with no gambas2-gb-db-sqlite dependency just in this afternoon. Hopefully you'll manage to install it. Read the notes. - Jan 05 2010
I've tested GamCat on Fedora 12 LiveCD and it works. Still, this was a live version, and I had some troubles with font sizes. - Jan 05 2010
I've updated the links, so you can now download all the packages from this page. - Jan 04 2010
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gamcat/files/

Here are the files! - Jan 04 2010
I suggest you to try the unace provided with the Fedora.I hope it will work for you. I've never tested GamCat on Fedora, only with Ubuntu, Debian and Mandriva, but hopefully you can use the Mandriva's or openSuse's version. I'm really curious about it's usability. Please post me your experiences, if you're willing! - Jan 04 2010
And it is likely to have troubles with .ace archives - Jun 28 2009
Please try to re-add the questioned volume with no archive search.
It is likely some archive does the crash.
The guilty is upon the different kinds of character encoding used by Windows and Linux. I've encountered similar errors on my old volumes, which were made under Windows. Anyway, it won't do any harm to your database, just it wont list all the contents of an archive - Jun 28 2009

Could you be so kind to add a Hungarian flag too?

Thank you! - Nov 15 2010

It has to be installed as normal user and it works, although it complains about mppdec, id3info,id3v2,id3cp and apetag. This is for Kubuntu 9.10 - Nov 23 2009
