Problem Adding Roland DJ-505 mapping to Mixxx (Ubuntu)

Postby E-Shine » Thu Oct 03, 2019 3:14 pm

Hello Mixxx community !

I just got a Roland DJ-505 that I chose after checking Mixxx's compatibility list.
But I couldn't install Mixxx 2.2.2 and I tried to make it work (the savage way) on Mixxx 2.2.0...and it didn't...
I admit I'm not good at using github and git code, but as I thought I just needed the "controller" files, I took them from there.
After checking the XML worked good (first time, it was unreadable but I found out it came from a problem you get by using "Save as" on browser...), I copied it.
And what a MIRACLE (well...almost), the controller appeared in the parameters' menu...
But when I chose it, every single input leads to an error, so, it still doesn't work...(at least I tried).
Can anyone tell me if you can actually use it on this version of Mixxx, and how to install it...properly, this time..?

Thank you by advance !

The mapping for the Roland DJ-505 is not compatible with Mixxx 2.2. It was made for the upcoming Mixxx 2.3. If you want to use it now, you'll have to either use a build from our buildserver or build Mixxx yourself from the latest source code on GitHub.

2.3 alpha deb has same problem than 2.2.2 deb when I try to install it. :(

And when I click on "install" anyway, it tells me : "The following packages have unmet dependencies" and doesn't install.


Edit : After installing GDebi instead of using Ubuntu's "Software" program, It seems that the problem is that "libprotobuf-lite10" is missing on my system.

I'm not sure what the problem is with the Ubuntu packages, but if you want to get Mixxx working before someone fixes that, you can still build it from source.
