I posted this update in the development thread for HCbatchGUI but since this is directly related to linux I have edited this thread. Please check the very fist post in this thread for a new gtk linux release.

No auto shutdown is not there yet. I hope to find a way to add that later.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
I have updated HCbatchGUI to version 14.5 for both windows and GTK linux
HCbatchGUI GTK Linux
Updated HCenc to version 023
Added AQ, DBpath, LLpath to template
Fixed a bug where HCenc and dgpulldown didn't start on some systems
Download Program here
Download Source code here
Plans for the future include auto system shutdown after encoding is finished.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
I'm having an issue with the HCBatchGUI executable, When I try to run it doesn't start the program, my permissions look good and "run executable as a program" is ticked off. Avisynth Aften and the other prerequisites are all installed. In the properties it says open with Wine and I can't deselect it, I'm guessing Wine shouldn't be the opening app because it is a Linux executable. I'm sure it's something simple I've overlooked. I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 i386 and using Wine 0.9.49 because it is the only version of Wine that plays nice with all my Audio applications. Guidance appreciated, I'm looking forward to using your app!
PS. I haven't tried a source install (yet)
Are you sure you downloaded the gtk version? Try downloading from the direct link here

have rebuilt using static libraries. Program is now stand alone and doesn't need external libraries.
Then double click on the lowercase hcbatchgui file. You're right that it shouldn't require wine to open the main executable because it is a native linux file. Of course I notice that other programs such as the native linux mediainfogui also says open with wine in the properties tab so I think that is just an OS quirk.
Also do you have libgtk2.0 installed as this is a GTK program? Other than that I'm not quite sure why it is not working because we are running the same OS and the wine version really shouldn't matter.
Yours is the first feedback I've had and I'm hoping it's not something I've coded wrong. Everything "should" work.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
It was the tarball so it must've been the gtk version I DL'd, Also when I browse the folder the Windows executables are displaying different icons than the hcbatchgui one, I will try the previous (14.4) when time permits and see if it behaves differently and let you know.
Hold on. I think (hopfully) I know what may be the problem. I went back and downloaded the files from the servers myself and tried to run them and had the same problem. For some reason the checkbox next to Execute - "Allow executing file as a program" is not checked. It needs to look like this.
After making sure the check box is checked the program ran no problem.
BTW I wouldn't use 14.4. There were some issues that I hopefully corrected in 14.5Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
Unfortunately still no go here, Obviously the issue is on my end because you can run the files OK. What does your "Open With" (in Properties) tab say? I can run all the Windows .exe files in the same folder, I believe the culprit is my .bin file being associated with Wine. I just don't know why that is. it will not allow me to remove the Wine association. I opened Wine Config but there is nothing there to change. Perhaps I should move the hcbatchgui.bin file to /usr/bin/ and see if I can execute it from the terminal.
This really is frustrating though. It should just be a case of extract to a directory and run. I know of a couple of different people that have said they were going to use the program. I'm going to ask them if they had any problems like you have.
Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
mono is not in my list of choices, only Wine. What libmono packages do you have installed? Perhaps since you have been programming you have some development libraries installed that I don't. I see in Synaptic there are many libmono packages. I'll look closer and try some.
I hope installing mono doesn't give me a virus
One other thing that might be worth trying is installing libwxgtk2.6 and libwxgtk2.8 from synaptic. I thought I included those librairies into the executable but perhaps I didn't. Since this was written in wxgtk widgets those librairies may be needed on the target machine as well.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
Installed "mono" and tried to launch it with the mono command, still no-go. I already had the libwxgtk libs (including the development libs) you mentioned installed except for 2.4 which I installed as well. If I open the file in a terminal I get this:
gmaq@gmaq-laptop:~$ hcbatchgui hcbatchgui: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2_richtext-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory gmaq@gmaq-laptop:~$
I also have installed the python-bindings
python-wxgtk2.6 and python-wxgtk2.8
You should be able to get them through synaptic although if not then you can get them here
That is the only other references to wx I have installed. If that don't work I'm going to have to do some serious looking at the code to figure out what is missing.
I still think it is down to missing librairies though. Just gotta figure out which ones.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
Installed the python-wxgtk libs (they were in Synaptic) No-go with same error in the terminal. It would be nice if we could get another machine to try, then we would have a little better idea if this would be a problem that any new user would face or if it's confined to my machine. I could try it on my desktop, but that would not be until this evening, I have virtually identical Ubuntu setups on both my machines. It's funny I ran 8.04 on my laptop for a couple of days, but I just couldn't get it to behave with the stability of 7.10, especially the -rt kernel, I was dissappointed also that many of the applications in the repos were no newer, so I was going to have to compile to get them anyway.
Anyway back to business, Would any of our other 'Buntu users be willing to try the gtk hcbatchgui? Your help would be appreciated.

Sorry, same error as GMaq.
I installed it on my desktop, same issue I'm afraid. I didn't install any extra libraries because that would probably defeat the purpose of it being something anybody could extract and run from the folder. I'm sorry this is such a headache for you, if we get input from some other users maybe it will be easier to figure out what's missing. Obviously you will want to get it working, For now the Windows version still works with Wine correct?
Of course I am willing to continue to try any suggestions you may have. I'm running out of ideas, but I won't be able to sleep until we figure it out!
I hate to jump in here as I know freebird will get this all sorted, but it appears that there are a couple of missing dependencies:
I could not find these in the standard gutsy repos, but I did find them from an external source. Since I'm running in a VM, I don't really care how bad I hose this install, but I hesitate to suggest an outside repo. If anyone is interested, here is a link to how I found them https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-users/2007-August/019356.html
After adding both of those, the gui launched for me. I still got an error about a missing image in the wine hc directory, but I'm not really trying to use this, just sort the stated issue.
Hey guys. Just wanted to let ya know that I didn't just wander off. Had a tooth that has been killing me and can hardly see straight. Just got back from the dentist just now. Darn tooth was cracked. Talk about pain. They drilled two teeth today. Anyways...
Tekkieman thanks for the trouble shooting. What is funny is that I don't have those particular libraries installed on my machine.
I did some checking and I didn't Include the libraries I thought I did into the executable. I will work on that.
Gmaq did you try tekkie's solution and did it work for you?
Thanks for hanging in there. Now time to go get stupid on some pain pills....Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
Sorry about your tooth, that's gotta suck.
I didn't have time to do much more last night, but I had a moment this aft to track down the libraries that our esteemed Tekkieman has provided, and yes they did allow me to launch the GUI. That's as far as I got and I have a weekend full of family gatherings and a rather lengthy Honey-Do list to attend to, When time permits I will investigate further. I did also have the Wine error issue that Tekkieman described, and an error about the config file when I exited, perhaps that's normal since i didn't have time to do the setup on the last tab. Enjoy the painkiller high, and I will post back when i have had a better look.
To make things easier for debian/Ubuntu users here are the debs for the two packages needed to let hcbatchgui run
Libraries neeeded to run the gui. Thanks to tekkiman
external libraries are no longer needed.
That way there is no need to mess with your repo lists.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
As long as you install the required debs linked in my post above then yes it should work just fine.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")

I am getting this error when I run the hcbatchgui exectable, it would appear that the application is looking for some .ico files that are on your system since I don't have any drives or directories with these names on mine.
Yep. That is supposed to be my simple little program icon. Danged this is not working out as simple as it is supposed to!
Thanks for point that out. I will work on that tomorrow.Donadagohvi (Cherokee for "Until we meet again")
