Request for testing: AppImage packaging option

TL;DR; try our new AppImage below


Regular users of Xibo for Linux will likely be aware that we’ve had some quite serious issues recently with video playback and player stability. These have been very difficult and time consuming to track down and have involved us working with multiple up/down stream projects. The root cause of the problem appears to have been the snap packaging tool we use to package and distribute the application. An update to snap and/or an update to the Kernel is at the root of the video problems. A following update to snap has fixed the problems on most platforms, but introduced other issues.

For this project to be viable and supported we simply cannot have a “silent” update to the underlying packaging system break existing installations. We have therefore been exploring alternative cross-platform packaging solutions and today have an AppImage file available for early testing.

Testing the AppImage

If you would like to test this, please follow these steps:

  1. Close the Snap version of the Player (you do not need to uninstall it, but make sure it won’t be restarted by the watchdog).
  2. Download the AppImage file and make it executable (if it isn’t already) and put it in a folder of your choice.
  3. Create a sub-folder in the same location called Xibo_Player-x86_64.AppImage.config
    3a. If you wish to do so here, you can copy your old config folder from your Snap install, which will be in /home/username/snap/xibo-player/common, or you can reconfigure this test fresh using options as usual.
  4. Start Player options ./Xibo_Player-x86_64.AppImage --config-app
  5. If everything looks OK, start the Player

The minimum supported version of Ubuntu for this test is 18.04, and for other distributions we require gcc7.

Please leave your feedback below and thank you for your assistance.

This appimage is working for me on a Linux Mint 20.04 Intel Compute Stick. I am going to let it run for a few days.

Hello,
I am trying the solution on Oracle VM VirtualBox machine. My Ubuntu version is:

Ubuntu version 20.04.1 LTS

and I am having problems with the solution above.

The command:

Xibo_Player-x86_64.AppImage.config

works OK.
For testing I have a layout with countdown and afterwards there is a video I get this errors:

Also when it should start playing the video it stops after the start and the picture freezes. When the video is finished it goes from beginning.

Thank you for the feedback so far - I’ve passed it on to the development team.

Hello.
Well the problem with the video playing is, that I needed to disable the audio in the setting for the virtual machine. So now the video is playing, but still I get errors for the Countdown:

I see there is difference with error if you compare it with the post before this.

Theme parsing error, did you also used a different font? try with a new layout to test.

I always get that theme parsing error.

I’ve putten ’ inside the http so I can publish the post.

Hello, I tested the AppImage packaging on a Debian 4.19.98-1 (2020-01-26) x86_64.
With the Snap version, after a few hours, the player fails. The layout contains only video files.
With AppImage, it’s still running after 1,5days. But there were some errors :
