Fedora :: Flac And Id3 Tags Without Multiple Steps
Sep 17, 2009
I need to start archiving my audio media again. However I use flac, and the monotony of having to use grip, and then go to easy tag is getting old. Is there a one stop program that will convert my audio cd's to flac and perform the id3 tag, with at most an approval on the tag from cddb or wherever it gets the info from? Grip states that it's id3 tagging only works with mp3's. I don't desire to use wine for this. Appreciate the help.
Btw: AMAZON.....if you'd sell flac instead of 128kbps and 256kbps I wouldn't have to do this....
update: Asunder appears to be working. Anyone here used Asunder and if so, any gripes? It appears to use capital letters and spaces though which I really don't like.

You will need "cuetag" for this which is part of the "cuetools" but since you already installed it (see previous seps), all you have to do is open the terminal, navigate to the folder where you just splitted some APE or FLAC files and type this:
cuetag *.cue split-track*.flac ;
(if you didn't change the file's name from split-trackNN.flac). All the split-track*.flac files will have tags in just a few seconds.so i did exactly what i was suppose to do but for some reason is still could not add the tags to my FLAC files..
kon@kon-laptop:~$ cd ~/Desktop kon@kon-laptop:~/Desktop$ cd *ora* kon@kon-laptop:~/Desktop/sDvorak $ cd *CD1*
How can I set specific ID3 tags for multiple files? For example, I would like to set all files in a directory to the same album. (directly setting the album tag for files in a directory to the directory name would be even better)
I have my laptop connected to an external monitor and in the upperleft hand of both screens is an identifier that wont go away and is blocking my view. On my laptop it says "Laptop" and then "Dell 20"" on my secondary display. just want to get rid of these labels. I have checked and unchecked "Show monitors in panel" and that seems to be my only option.
I have a lot of avis with annoying metadata that show in vlc. Since I cannot figure out how to configure vlc in a way that it won't show the tags, ffmpeg should strip the tags. This is supposed to do the trick:
I noticed recently that when you put a Audio "red book" cd in the drive and look at it with KDE Dolphin file manager, it shows the CD as a handy tree of folders called "MP3", "Ogg", "FLAC" and so on. So if you copy the FLAC directory to your hard drive, it then uses flac to rip the wav files in the CD to FLAC's on the hard drive. This is all nice but I noticed my Fedora 15 was doing this without the cdparanoia package being installed. I've since installed cdparanoia (which is a software for robustly error correcting and if necessary, multi-try reading from the disk to get a majority vote correct read). Does this mean I can't be assured the FLAC files Dolphin made are bit perfect? I would have assumed that you'd need to use cdparanoia to be sure the wav's get ripped to flac perfectly.
How i can edit the tags in About Me(System->Preference->About Me)? I need to change some tags it uses and want to change that. I don't know which package(s) are used in that. know the name of the package so that i can modify and install the source code?
SSH is initially installed and activated. What are the steps in activating FTP and Telnet on Fedora 10. I know they are non-secure and probably shouldn't be used at all, but I need to know or at least pointed in the right direction.
I have been searching for a while for a program to convert .flac files I rip off of cd's with my laptop (running Fedora 11) to a usable iTunes format for my desktop (running Win XP). The cd drive on my desktop is currently broken, so my fix of ripping on my desktop, then using Rhythmbox on my laptop is temporarily unavailable. Any suggestions? I've tried audiokonverter, soundconverter, audio-convert-mod and each come up with errors or wouldn't install.
I've been a Linux user for 5 years, though this I only recently started using RPM based distros. I'm still in my first week using Fedora and I love it. Hats off to the development team. Now, onto my question:
I have a rather large collection of music in three different formats: MP3, OGG, and FLAC. I'd like to shrink my library by converting all the flac files to ogg. However, since I don't want to convert from lossy to lossy, I'm going to leave the mp3s alone. Is there a program that will allow me to do this quickly and easily? I'd prefer a GUI, though I'm comfortable working with the terminal if needed.
I downloaded jdk-6u11-linux-1586.bin for working java. I don't know whether I downloaded bin file is correct or not. If it is not correct means what type of file I download to install java. I request u to tell steps for install the java.
I have tried everything and it has been 2 weeks of build time. I have Fedora 12, Apache 2.2, MySQL, and PHP installed on my computer. I have built a virtual host for Apache that works (for the most part). The virtual host references the directory "/home/username/public_html". When I put in my domain it goes to the right folder and accesses the files (permissions = 755). I sut down SELinux so that is not an issue.
Here is my problem: I can not get php to link to other php files called in the same folders or sub folders. The WebServer is telling me that the file does not exist. For instance, I have a login script that shows up on Index.php. This file is in "/code/login_script/login.php". In short I can access the file but when login.php tries to call login_check.php (the code that validates the user) I get a 404 error - file "can not be found" (despite being in the same directory as login.php and have the same permissios set both to the directories it is nested in and the file itself).
I wanted to start using Fedora as a segway to RHEL for a comany I an trying to build . . . but so far it has been nothing but road blocks. I can not get to the code part as I am configuring non stop.
I have downloaded the linuxdcplus 1.0.3 source file. However i am unable to install the same in my fedora 11. could anyone guide me and all with detailed step by step instructions and the possible options?
I am relatively new to linux having only used ubuntu 9.10. Trouble is for all the talk of how secure ubuntu is, truth is it kept getting remote hacked (I have a stalker who is messing with me) over and over so now I am going to try fedora in hopes of finally having a secure system. My question is, what steps do I need to take to try to secure Fedora 12?
I don't know if this is the right place to post this. When I transfer my .ogg music files to my cowon s9, it doesn't recognise the tags so all I see is "unknown" for album, song and artist. I have tried retagging using easytag but it still shows up as unknown but when I converted an album to mp3, the tags automatically showed up. I know it would be easier just to convert all my songs to mp3 but the reason I chose the cowon was its ability to play .ogg files, my preferred choice of music file. The odd thing is I had a D2 until I lost it and that showed the tags ok.
I have been searching around and found lots of details of how to fix a dual boot situation gone wrong but I have not run across a guide or steps on how to install Windows & FC12 the correct way.I have to reinstall my computer any way for other reasons so I am going to reinstall with either XP or Win7 (leaning towards 7) and Fedora 12. I can dedicate a drive to each OS no problem and I can imagine how I would install each on it's own drive, but not quite sure what to use as a boot manager?
When I use Rythmbox it always ask for a wma codec when i dont have any wma files and i also have a problem with id3 demuxer. I tried to edit a few music files and the tags didnt get updated, im not sure what the problem is.
