Well this is great news indeed. I thought you were still referring to Yosemite.

I'll be happy to continue using my non-serious OS to actually answer my emails instead of spending my day building a desktop environment and an email client ;)
Point taken :)
I admit that building on Linux is not always easy. Especially if packages are not well done. (hardcoded paths, manual intervention required, etc..)
But building is a corner case on a OS, and most likely one should never do that, but instead install prebuilt applications via the provided package system (Software center in Ubuntu)
My point with Apple is related to how the OS itself does (not) work, from a user perspective.
Another example is the ElectroTAS adapter. When I plug it on my Mac is not even recognized because they used non-ordinary USB VID/PID.
It works perfectly on Linux, so now that I have realized this, I need to retract the OSX support for that adapter.
I just don't understand how this "close ecosystem" policy can help Apple. Closing too much simply doesn't make things to work.

Oh you mean the package manager that's working so well on Ubuntu (as mentioned in this forum) :D Just kidding, of course, please don't take any offense, I'm just joking around with you. In all actuality, I do understand your gripe with this as I'm currently wrestling with a couple of video cards that were working fine in OS X 10.10.2 and were completely disabled with no warning under 10.10.3 (and I'm sure it's much more significant on the developer end of things). But that said, there are also a whole lot of advantages that come with a closed ecosystem, especially on the user's side. I mean surely, you cannot deny that there are some very significant advantages to the position that iOS is in compared to Android when it comes to fragmentation of the user base. Nevertheless this really isn't the place for that discussion, I suppose.

All that aside, I'm testing 4.10.10 now and so far, so good. There is one minor issue that I will note which is, try as I might, I cannot get QLC+ to honor the preference file settings for simpleconsole/channelsperpage

I don't think that this is specific to 4.10.0, but I thought I would mention it.

Yep. This is the thread you're looking for: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8846
In particular this: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8846&start=10#p38615

Whelp, I tried for about 20 minutes and I still can't get it working. Guess I'll live with that minor annoyance...

I have a problem with Ubuntu binary.
Qlcplus-qt4-git Ubuntu 14.04

Trying to load the direct package at the bottom of the page ... all packages are only 6.4K in size. Normaly 8M or more.

When it installs, it installs only a few bits of documentation.

Packages should be fine now. Please test.

Package manager runs install but then does nothing..., and nothing is actually installed. Strange...

This might be the reason:

Code: Select all

> sudo dpkg -i qlcplus-qt4-git_4.10.0.20150928.f381668_amd64.deb 
(Reading database ... 284509 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack qlcplus-qt4-git_4.10.0.20150928.f381668_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking qlcplus-qt4-git (4.10.0.20150928.f381668) ...
dpkg: error processing archive qlcplus-qt4-git_4.10.0.20150928.f381668_amd64.deb (--install):

Errors were encountered while processing:

Basically you should uninstall any previous version. Names conflict
