About Gtick

From Gtick's homepage:

"GTick is a metronome application written for GNU/Linux and other UN*X-like operting systems supporting different meters (Even, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4 and more) and speeds ranging from 10 to 1000 bpm. It utilizes GTK+ and OSS (ALSA compatible). It is part of the GNU Project.

This program has been originally written by Alex Roberts, but since he didn't have the time to develop and maintain it further, I (Roland Stigge) took it over (initially to package it for Debian, but there were too many "upstream" issues, so I decided to maintain the whole package). Since then, the program has been mainly rewritten (new DSP core, GTK+2 port, added features). "


Features

From Gtick's homepage:

  • Very easy handling
  • Reliable timing
  • Volume control
  • Different meters (Even, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, more)
  • Configurable speed (10 to 1000 BPM)
  • Manual tapping input
  • Customizable ticking sound
  • Native language support for 20 languages: Afrikaans, Basque, Catalan, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Irish, Italian, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese
  • Separate audio thread for better realtime performance
  • Customizable commands for metronome start / stop, e.g. for switching off the screensaver
  • Options saved to rc file
  • Customizable sound device
  • Visual Tick
  • Accent Attack Padding
  • Configurable Accent Table


installation

Get source from [1] and compile it.

It worked well for me on my SHR.

Use modprobe snd-pcm-oss to get /dev/dsp . Gtick has an option for executing commands on startup, so you start compatility mode there.

I had this problem:speech-dispatcher blocking /dev/dsp . Killing the speech-dispatcher process helped.


I have created a package for testing. It's my first package, and I haven't checked it yet(e.g. for dependences), but it worked for me. Feel free to test it or make you own package and share it here (You'll find a nice icon on Gtick's homepage).

Unsatisfied dependencies:

  • libsndfile opkg install libsndfile

usage

Tip: Use the app in landscape mode.

ToDo

feel free to make it better :)

  • create package

Testing , Feedback , Bugs

Please add anything you come upon on this page.
