Summary0001133: check if xine-ui is installed

in the rendering dialog we have the option to enable "play after render", but it fails for me just saying xine is needed for playback.

I figured out that I have to install "xine-ui", but maybe it would be better to integrate this check into the "config wizard", because other users might have problems to find out what package exactly needs to be installed...

The only thing in Kdenlive that uses xine is the DVD Wizard. If you were not using the DVD Wizard but instead the Render dialog, then check your Settings > Environment > Default Apps > Video player. If you put xine in there, then this is not a bug in kdenlive.

Oh man, I don't know what's going on that evening, but what I meant was the Preview-button in the DVD wizard, where xine seems to be used for playback as the default player - SORRY!!!!

So, this is really not a bug, right, but it still might be good to check in the config wizard if xine is installed?!?

Kdenlive does not know that your distribution requires a xine-ui package, and adding distribution-oriented intelligence to Kdenlive is non maintainable. Kdenlive's DVD Wizard Preview already shows the error "You need program xine to perform this action" if the execution fails. Perhaps you should verify that your distribution strongly recommends a xine frontend package when you install libxine, xine-backend, or whatever.

But, yeah, I suppose for consistency, it ought to be added to the config wizard where it checks for other runtime dependencies. It still will not be able to recommend an exact package though.

ok, I think integrating this check into the config wizard should be sufficient to give the user a hint what to do...

thanks in advance

The config wizard does not check for xine yet, right?
Should we do that @jb?
