A member of another group I follow, for the TRS-80 Color Computer has posted a pile of .mp3's that were generated on his Coco, using the tools for midi that this 30 year old machine has, and recorded as .mp3's, and has posted their efforts on an online dropbox like site,
Clicking on one of the tunes opens a player screen that doesn't identify itself, so I have NDI what players screen it is, but it is mute, they don't play at all.
From the firefox plugins page I would assume that the mplayer stuff has now all been replaced by gecko-media-player, but the installed version, 0.9.6something dates from back in 2009! So I hauled myself to their site & pulled the tar.gz of the 1.06 version, read the INSTALL which was pretty std, ./configure;make;make test; yadda yadda.
Unforch, ./configure bails out without getting very far:
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for GLIB... yes
checking for GMLIB... no
configure: error: Package requirements (gmlib >= 1.0.5) were not met:
No package 'gmlib' found
Checking in synaptic, no such named packages are in our repo.
Can we get a prebuilt, more recent (V1.06) version of this gecko-media-player? Please?
