Ok, i have the “need” for a pretty specific application i’m not able to find for Linux. Since I’m on Linux, instead of putting up with it, i plan on just doing it myself. Gnome is my current choice of DE. I also think making it a GTK Application probably would be the best option for compatibility, should anyone else find it usefull.
I have done GUI Applications before, but windows only. I tried following some of the GTK provided documentation, but feel pretty lost.
The basics i’m trying to do for now, are a basic music player. Just a seek bar, 4 buttons and being able to play a single file. I’ll add functionality later. I started with gtk builder and am able to somewhat put a UI together, but have no clue how to even begin with playing media files.
So, anyone know of a decent, half way recent tutorial for this? Or should i just say f*ck it and do it as an electron app or similar?
If you’re interested, here’s the “end” goal: I play guitar. For learning and transcribing Music, i need a player with some specific features. On Windows there are similar tools (free or paid), but i haven’t found one for Linux. I need adjustable playback speed, pitch shifting, looping sections and a few things more. I know that some music players offer similar functionality, but it’s often burried in menus and especially playback speed is used all the time, often auto increasing over each itteration etc. Foobar or such just don’t provide a decent interface for changing those parameters on the fly.
