GNOME Twitch 0.4.0 Includes Improved Chat, Re-Enabled Notifications, More

GNOME Twitch (not an official GNOME app) 0.4.0 was released recently, bringing improved chat moving and resizing, re-enabled notifications, along with improved stability and more.

GNOME Twitch


The application was updated 3 days ago, but there was a bug that prevented it from building in Ubuntu 16.10, so I preferred to wait until it’s fixed so I could update the PPA.

GNOME Twitch is an application to watch Twitch streams on your desktop, without using Flash or a web browser. It requires GTK 3.20 or newer so it only works in fairly new Linux distributions, e.g. Ubuntu 16.10 and newer.
Using it, you can easily search for channels and games, follow streams with or without a Twitch account (it supports logging in to your Twitch account) and more. The application supports 4 player backends (GStreamer Cairo, OpenGL and Clutter, as well mpv) and it ships with a customizable chat.
GNOME Twitch

Changes in GNOME Twitch 0.4.0 include:

  • the chat can now be easily moved and resized when it’s undocked (see screenshot above). To do this, select “Move & resize chat” (which will add a red outline around the chat), then drag / resize the chat using your mouse;
  • the notifications are enabled again – you can click them to start playing a channel (in Unity, a GTK dialog box is displayed as a notification so you can click it to open the stream – that’s because Unity’s notifications don’t support click actions);
  • you can now filter channels by language. To do this, you’ll need to select a language in the Language filter drop-down, available in the GNOME Twitch settings;
  • the application now supports searching for offline channels – this can be done by clicking on the drop-down at the right of the search bar;
  • display all stream qualities, including special ones like 720p60;
  • display all chat badges, including temporary ones;
  • dynamic loading of items in containers, which speeds up the startup and refresh times;
  • the notification bar can now queue notifications and it can also display errors now;
  • the viewer count is now displayed for games (just like channels, this is displayed on hover);
  • improved build system.

Even though it includes quite a few enhancements, the latest GNOME Twitch 0.4.0 release is mainly focused on stability and better error handling and reporting. Even so, according to the release notes, there are still bugs and crashes, “but hopefully there will be a significant decrease in both“.

Install GNOME Twitch 0.4.0 in Ubuntu 16.10 or 17.04

GNOME Twitch is available in the official Ubuntu 16.04 and newer repositories, but it’s an older version (0.1.0 for Ubuntu 16.04, 0.2.1 for Ubuntu 16.10 and 0.3.1 for Ubuntu 17.04). To install the version from the official repositories, use the following command:
sudo apt install gnome-twitch

To install the latest GNOME Twitch in Ubuntu 16.10 or 17.04, you can use the main WebUpd8 PPA. To add the PPA and install it, use the commands below:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gnome-twitch
If you don’t want to add the PPA, you can grab the deb from HERE (note: you’ll need GNOME Twitch as well as at least one player backend – make sure both are the latest version).

By default, installing GNOME Twitch should also install the GStreamer Cairo backend. If you want to install the other player backends as well (you can remove those that you don’t plan on using), use the following command:

sudo apt install gnome-twitch-player-backend-mpv-opengl gnome-twitch-player-backend-gstreamer-clutter gnome-twitch-player-backend-gstreamer-opengl

Note that no player backend is selected by default and enabling one is required to play a stream. To enable a player backend, open the GNOME Twitch Settings and on the Players tab, select a backend:

Streamlink Twitch GUI 1.2.0 Adds Support For Communities And Team Pages, Basic Hotkeys

Streamlink Twitch GUI (previously Livestreamer Twitch GUI) is a multi-platform Twitch.tv browser.

The application is powered by Node.js, Chromium and Streamlink, though it can still use Livestreamer (which is no longer maintained) too.

Streamlink Twitch GUI
Using it, you can easily browse Twitch.tv and open streams in your favorite video player, like VLC, Totem, mpv and others.

Streamlink Twitch GUI features:

  • supports both Streamlink as well as the deprecated Livestreamer;
  • watch streams in the video player of your choice;
  • watch multiple streams at once;
  • integrated Twitch.tv login (OAuth) with access to subscriptions and followed channels and games;
  • follow your favorite channels and games;
  • filter streams by channel or broadcaster language;
  • displays desktop notifications whenever a followed channel starts broadcasting;
  • join the Twitch chat using different chat applications;
  • customizable settings for streams (like default quality and buffer), video player parameters, GUI and more;
  • individual channel settings;
  • tray / appindicator which allows pausing the notifications;
  • light and dark themes.

Streamlink Twitch GUI 1.2.0

Streamlink Twitch GUI 1.2.0 was released recently, upgrading to Twitch API v5. Thanks to this, the application has received support for browsing communities and accessing team pages.

Another fairly important change in this release is the addition of basic hotkeys:
  • 0: go to homepage
  • 1-8: visit various main menu routes (9 reserved for future VODs menu)
  • F1: about
  • F10: watching
  • F11: login/logout
  • F12: settings

Other changes in Streamlink Twitch GUI 1.2.0 include displaying a confirmation when unfollowing a channel or game, restructured main menu as well as channel pages and followed games menu, along with various bug fixes.
A complete changelog is available on GitHub.

Note that Streamlink Twitch GUI uses VLC to play Twitch streams by default. if VLC is not installed or you want to use a different player, go to the app Settings > Player > Video player, then enter the executable for a different video player (e.g.: “mpv” – without the quotes).

Download Streamlink Twitch GUI

Download Streamlink Twitch GUI (binaries available for Linux: 32bit and 64bit generic binaries, Windows: 32bit and 64bit and macOS 32bit)

For how to install Streamlink Twitch GUI, see THIS page.

Note that to be able to use Streamlink Twitch GUI, you’ll need Streamlink or Livestreamer. However, Livestreamer is no longer maintained and you may encounter issues, so Streamlink is recommended!
To install Streamlink Twitch GUI in Ubuntu, Linux Mint and derivates, use the following instructions.

1. Install the required dependencies

Install Streamlink from the main WebUpd8 PPA (recommended)

Alternatively, you can also install Livestreamer:

sudo apt install livestreamer

If you want to use Livestreamer instead of Streamlink you’ll need to open the Streamlink Twitch GUI settings, and on the Streamlink tab, select Livestreamer.

You’ll also need x11-utils and xdg-utils. Install these packages in Ubuntu / Linux Mint using the following commands:
sudo apt install x11-utils xdg-utils

2. Download and install Streamlink Twitch GUI

Download the latest Streamlink Twitch GUI binary from GitHub, place it in your home folder and extract it. Then, you can use the command below to move it to /opt:
cd && sudo mv streamlink-twitch-gui /opt/

3. Create a menu entry for Streamlink Twitch GUI

To create a menu entry, simply run the menu entry creation script that comes with Streamlink Twitch GUI:
/opt/streamlink-twitch-gui/add-menuitem.sh
If after running the command above you can’t find Streamlink Twitch GUI in the menu / Unity Dash or the icon is missing, restart the session (logout / login).

Install Streamlink (Livestreamer Fork) In Ubuntu Or Linux Mint Via PPA

It looks like Livestreamer is no longer maintained, so a fork, called Streamlink, was created recently. There are no Ubuntu packages for the new fork, so I uploaded Streamlink to the main WebUpd8 PPA.

The PPA uses the Livestreamer Debian packaging, renamed for Streamlink, so the packaging credits go to Stefan Breunig, the Livestreamer Debian maintainer.

Streamlink

In case you’re not familiar with Livestreamer, this is a command line utility (and API is also available) that pipes video streams from services such as Livestream, Twitch, UStream, Youtube Live and more, to video players like VLC, mpv, and so on.

The Livestreamer developer hasn’t committed any changes or responded to issues in some time, so it seems the project has been abandoned.
Due to changes in various video streaming services, some Livestreamer plugins no longer work properly – for instance, the Livestreamer Twitch GUI developer had to implement some workarounds to get Twitch to work (by the way, he also added initial support for Streamlink).
Streamlink fixes quite a few issues (for twitch, picarto, itvplayer, crunchyroll, periscope, and douyutv, among others) present in Livestreamer, while also adding plugins for new streaming services. Check out its changelog for more information.

Install Streamlink in Ubuntu or Linux Mint via PPA

To install Streamlink in Ubuntu or Linux Mint by using the main WebUpd8 PPA, use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt update
sudo apt install streamlink

If you don’t want to add the PPA, you can download the deb from HERE (you’ll need both streamlink and python-streamlink).

Streamlink is available in AUR for Arch Linux users.
To download the source, report bugs, etc., see the Streamlink GitHub page.

Multiload-ng 1.4.0, GNOME Twitch 0.3.0, Sublime Text 3 Build 3126 [PPA Updates Part 2]

The first WebUpd8 PPA updates part is HERE.

Multiload-ng 1.4.0

Multiload-ng Xfce

Multiload-ng is a graphical system monitor for the Xfce, LXDE, and MATE panels (for both GTK2 and GTK3), forked from the old GNOME Multiload applet. It can also run in a standalone window.
The applets are highly configurable, allowing you to select the orientation, change the graph size, update interval, and it also ships with quite a few color schemes.
With the latest 1.4.0 release, Multiload-ng includes a Unity (and others) AppIndicator, as well as a systray applet. 

Here’s the new Multiload-ng AppIndicator running in Unity (with Ambiance color scheme):

Multiload-ng AppIndicator

And the new Multiload-ng Systray running in LXDE (Lubuntu 14.04 which is not supported by the Multiload-ng LXDE panel applet, but you can now use Multiload-ng Systray):

Multiload-ng systray


Other changes in the latest Multiload-ng include:

  • ability to switch between SI units (base 1000) and IEC units (base 1024) to measure bytes;
  • drop shared component of Memory graph;
  • ability to choose between two methods of counting used memory;
  • command line options parsing;
  • simulate panel orientation on standalone, based on width-to-height ratio;
  • ability to import color schemes created with older versions of Multiload-ng;
  • ability to choose background gradient direction;
  • better graphs drawing performance;
  • other minor improvements and bug fixes.

An AWN applet is also available with this release, but it’s marked as experimental, so I didn’t build it in the PPA. I’ll add it once it’s considered stable.
To install Multiload-ng in Ubuntu (and derivatives: Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, etc.) or Linux Mint, firstly add the main WebUpd8 PPA and update the software sources:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt update

And then install the Multiload-ng applet you want to use:

– AppIndicator (Unity, etc.):

sudo apt install multiload-ng-indicator
Once installed, launch it from the Dash / menu. Note that the indicator does not start automatically on login and it doesn’t have such an option, so if you want this, use “Startup Applications” to add it (use “multiload-ng-indicator” as the command).

– Systray applet:

sudo apt install multiload-ng-systray

– MATE panel applet:

sudo apt install mate-multiload-ng-applet

– Xfce panel applet:

sudo apt install xfce4-multiload-ng-plugin

– LXDE panel applet (note that Lubuntu 14.04 is not supported):

sudo apt install lxpanel-multiload-ng-plugin

You’ll need to restart the LXDE panel or else Multiload-ng won’t show up in the applet list:

lxpanelctl restart

– Standalone (doesn’t require any panel to run):

sudo apt install multiload-ng-standalone

GNOME Twitch 0.3.0

GNOME Twitch

GNOME Twitch is an application that lets you play Twitch streams on your desktop, without Flash. The application supports browsing games and channels, logging in to your Twitch account, it features built-in Twitch chat and much more.

    • fullscreen bar is now animated when shown/hidden;
    • all views now show some useful info when empty.
GNOME Twitch
A live stream in GNOME Twitch 0.3.0 with the mpv backend and Twitch chat enabled

I tried uploading GNOME Twitch 0.3.0 back when it was released, but I couldn’t get it to build. Its Debian maintainer, Tim Dengel, updated it to version 0.3.0 recently, so I used their packaging (thank you!) to update the PPA, but only for Ubuntu 16.10. 
Unfortunately GNOME Twitch requires GTK 3.20, so I can’t build it for Ubuntu 16.04 (which has GTK 3.18). I tried reverting some changes, like it’s mentioned on the GNOME Twitch GitHub page, to get it to build with GTK 3.16, but even after updating the patches, it still doesn’t work so there’s nothing I can do about this, at least for now.
To install GNOME Twitch 0.3.0 in Ubuntu 16.10, you can use the main WebUpd8 PPA (for Ubuntu 16.04, GNOME Twitch 0.2.1 is provided by the PPA). Add the PPA and install the application using the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gnome-twitch

Note that only one player backend is installed by default. To install all of them (or just remove the ones you don’t want to use from the command below), you can use the following command:
sudo apt install gnome-twitch-player-backend-gstreamer-cairo gnome-twitch-player-backend-gstreamer-opengl gnome-twitch-player-backend-gstreamer-clutter gnome-twitch-player-backend-mpv-opengl

Sublime Text 3 Build 3126

Sublime Text 3

Sublime Text 3 is a popular text editor somewhat similar to TextMate, available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. The application is not free, but its evaluation period does not expire.
Sublime Text 3 Build 3126 (also including the changes from build 3124 since I didn’t get to update the PPA) includes quite a few changes. To mention just a few:

  • build errors are now shown inline, at the location the error occurred;
  • Show Definition is a new feature which will show where a symbol is defined when hovering over it with the mouse;
  • Settings now open in a new window, with the default and user settings side-by-side;
  • Added a menu (Tools) item and command palette entry to install Package Control;
  • Significant improvements to the Scala syntax definition;
  • Various syntax highlighting improvements;
  • Significant improvements to the LaTeX syntax definition;
  • Improved Goto Definition performance when a large number of files are open;
  • API: Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.2;
  • Linux and OSX: Improved memory usage;
  • Linux: Improved rendering performance for some systems;
  • Corrected tab overlap on HiDPI Windows and Linux configurations.

A complete changelog can be found HERE.

To install Sublime Text 3 (it’s an installer, like the Oracle Java WebUpd8 packages, which downloads Sublime Text from its servers, so no Sublime Text files are actually hosted by the PPA) in Ubuntu or Linux Mint by using the WebUpd8 Sublime Text 3 PPA, use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-3
sudo apt update
sudo apt install sublime-text-installer
I’ve updated many other packages I maintain in the WebUpd8 PPAs today and yesterday, but some only include minor changes or bug fixes, or a clear changelog is not available. I might have forgotten some too. If there’s a package from one of the WebUpd8 PPAs that I forgot to update, please let me know. Also, I haven’t uploaded every single package I maintain for Ubuntu 16.10 yet (but I did for all the packages I updated these days). I’m hoping to do this in the next few days. Right now I need to get some sleep 🙂

The first WebUpd8 PPA updates part is HERE.

Quick Updates: Variety Wallpaper Changer, WebTorrent Desktop, Oomox, Telegram Purple, OBS Studio

Variety 0.6.2

Variety wallpaper changer

Variety is a wallpaper changer that can automatically download wallpapers from various sources, like Flikr, Wallhaven, Bing Photo of the Day, Unslash, Desktoppr, NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day, as well as a live wallpaper of the world sunlight map. It can also automatically fetch wallpapers recommended by other Variety users.
The app was updated recently with a new “safe mode” option, which can be used to avoid NSFW and sketchy images. This feature relies on user ratings, so it’s not perfect, at least until more users rate the wallpapers.

The option can be found in the Variety preferences, on the General tab.

Also, the anonymous stats reporting feature, which was added in Variety 0.6.0, is now live (until now it didn’t actually report anything). This can be turned off from the Variety options (Preferences > Sync and social > Usage statistics).

More about these changes, HERE.

To install the latest Variety in Ubuntu / Linux Mint and derivatives, you can use its official PPA. To add the PPA and install Variety, run the following commands in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:peterlevi/ppa

Watch Twitch Using Your Favorite Video Player With Livestreamer Twitch GUI

Livestreamer Twitch GUI is a Twitch.tv browser. The application uses Livestreamer under the hood, is powered by Node.js and Chromium, and is available for Linux, Windows and Mac.

Livestreamer Twitch GUI

According to its description, the main reason behind creating this application is to allow using your favorite video player, like VLC, Totem, mpv, and others to watch Twitch.tv streams (the app even allows watching multiple streams at once) instead of Flash. 

That’s because while Twitch.tv now uses HTML5 for the video controls, it still uses Flash for the video itself, which can be pretty resource-heavy.

Livestreamer Twitch GUI

Livestreamer Twitch GUI allows searching and browsing channels and games, and it supports logging in to your Twitch account (using OAuth), with access to subscriptions, followed channels, and games.
Desktop notifications are included as well, so you can be notified when a channel you follow comes online. The notifications are optional and can be enabled or disabled per channel. There’s also an option in the Livestreamer Twitch GUI tray / AppIndicator menu that allows pausing the notifications.

Other Livestreamer Twitch GUI features include:

  • multiple chat methods (can open the chat in a web browser, Chatty or a custom app)
  • stream language filters
  • customizable settings for streams (like default quality and buffer), video player parameters, GUI and more
By default, the app uses VLC to play Twitch.tv streams. If VLC is not installed, you’ll need to set a video player in the application settings: under Player > Videoplayer (enter “mpv”, “totem”, “smplayer” and so on, without the quotes):

Livestreamer Twitch GUI

Download Livestreamer Twitch GUI

Download Livestreamer Twitch GUI (binaries available for Linux, Windows and Mac, along with source)
