AceStream Player is VLC version 2.1.4 (qt4) + patches. I learned the experience of VLC developers for version 3.x (qt5), but I cannot achieve the ideal result because of the serious differences between qt5 and qt4.
Using desktop-launch, I achieved the following results:
Ubuntu 18.04 GNOME. The player (qt4) has a beautiful appearance and beautiful dialog boxes. The engine (python-gtk2) looks beautiful in the system tray and has an excellent dialog box. https://yadi.sk/i/g2GnDY9OQZV2IA
Kubuntu 18.04. The player has a beautiful appearance and decent dialog boxes. The engine looks awful in the system tray and does not have a beautiful dialog box. https://yadi.sk/i/UoNwQxMO0CyejA
Xubuntu 18.04. The player has not a beautiful appearance and not beautiful dialog boxes. The engine looks great in the system tray and has not a beautiful dialog box. https://yadi.sk/i/jA3B7bR-mkpM2w
The gtk-common-themes and gtk2-common-themes snaps should help a bit for your app.
With that said, we’re not yet shipping all the themes needed for these particular configurations. Kubuntu is using KDE’s default “breeze” theme, and Xubuntu is using XFCE’s “greybird” theme. Both seem like decent candidates to include in the common themes snap.
@vasilisc dude, can you tell me how can I change the options of the start-engine script? I used to start it with the RAM cached in another distro
right now I can’t do that due to the ro mounted folder… and I’m too lazy to create any script to watch and clean the cache dir of the acestream
