I was thinking wrong and had only problem with the patching. For some
reason, I was pushing the buttons horizontal and vertically in stead of
the obvious diagonal pushing:
At the moment, ShowQ is my pick and it's still in the Ubuntu Multiverse
repo as of Ubuntu version 15.04.
I hope this program will continue to be at least maintained, but
hopefully developed further and that this project and Linux Show Player
can benefit from each other.
Linux Show Player do really have the right GUI and end user perspective
in mind; an in house mixer or any other person can hardly do anything
wrong with it when the heat turns up. All the the person in charge has
to do is to click at the song and then the song plays with useful clear
visual feedback. But it really has it's technical limitations on a
little bigger projects with it's lack of multichannel and real Jack
support. I will investigate Linux Show Player further in case I missed
ShowQ has the ability to deliver everything one basically needs for
backing tracks in a live situation, that's why I will stick to it now.
And small details like the fact that the space button starts the que but
can't stop it shows that the program's author really has been in this
situation or has been thinking right.
