OpenSUSE Install :: Any Substancial Difference Between Gnome Terminal Or Hitting 'c' To Bring Up Command Line

Feb 25, 2010

so the safest way to go about this is to assume I know nothing. I mean, I have a rough Idea of what a kernel is, no idea what a shell is, etc. I do consider myself computer savvy, but know NOTHING about linux and thats why I'm Diving in, hopefully not too much, this is just to give you an idea of what we're working with here.

After several install attempts I kept getting a blank screen. Whether it be black,white, or the default gnome desktop (without any icons, and simple things like ctrl+alt+backspace just doesn't work, or anything else for that matter) I was ending up with a blank screen. Driver for moniter....maybe....but I did succesfully install it once, and it worked like a charm...shutdown properly, and the next day after work...Boom, same thing after I started from scratch and re-installed....samething, until I hit the power button, went from the dvd(iso) and did a fail safe, now my resolution is much better than it was the first time..Actual questions.....what did I do to fix it when failsafe never worked before?

Is there a way to save these settings, so I don't run into the problem again, because I don't even want to turn of my computer at this point?If i'm trying to dive in and learn the command line actions, is there any substancial difference between gnome terminal or hitting "c" to bring up the command line?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Make Gnome-mplayer Recognize Commands Like "{a6}" Inside Srt Files On 11.3 - GNOME 2.30.2

Jan 10, 2011

I use gnome-mplayer 1.0.0 and Totem Movie Player 2.30.2 to view videos Both read subtitles well from srt files. But both are not able to read {a6} command in the srt files.

NOTE:- {a6} command serves the purpose of putting the subtitles on top of the screen, making it possible for subbers to display lyrics/additional footnotes on top, while at the same time, having the dialogues to show in their usual position.

Is there are way to force either of them to read the special commands properly?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Applications Recognize Gnome Shortcuts For Multimedia Keys?

Jan 8, 2011

Recently I installed MPlayer with its default gui and its interfaces SMPlayer and GnomeMPlayer. When I'm using GnomeMPlayer it responds to multimedia keys as configured in Gnome shortcuts, even if it's minimized or running in another virtual desktop. But it doesn't happen to the other two gui's mentioned above. I have also noticed that native Gnome applications or with Gnome support like Banshee and Rhythmbox rspond to multimedia keys even when the gui is closed and they are running only in the system tray. But it never occurs in non-Gnome applications like VLC, MPlayer and others. Jetaudio wich responds to these keys in MS Windows running under Wine doesn't even recognize them.

So I came to the conclusion that only native Gnome applications or with Gnome support recognize multimedia keys because, as it seems, they receive the signal from Gnome configurations. Others applications doesn't do so. Here is my question: Is there some way to make all applications recognize the configuration of Gnome multimedia keys shortcuts? (Of course it would not be fine if they recognized ALL Gnome shortcuts because they could conflict with shortcuts from another applications. The idela would be that they recognize ONLY Gnome multimedia shortcuts.)

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Volume Control In GNOME?

Nov 14, 2009

I normally run KDE, but installed GNOME as well on my netbook (running openSUSE 11.2) to try out. However, I noticed there is no longer any volume control applet. The GNOME panel control is labeled 'deprecated', and the volue Fn keys, which work fine in KDE, do not work at all. I tried launching the PulseAudio Volume Control app, but it gives me a "Connection Failed: Connection Refused error". I still have sound, and I can adjust the volumes in alsamixer, but is rather inconvinient. What is the "right way" to adjust volumes in 11.2's GNOME?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Banshee With 11.2 Gnome 2.28.0?

Dec 12, 2009

i have a fresh installation of opensuse 11.2 32-bit. my soundcard is terratec ewx 24-96. the card is detected in yast, and i can play test sound from the yast/sound panel. all volume sliders are set to maximum values (i have also double checked it in alsamixer).

i *can* hear the sound when doing this test from the gnome terminal:

speaker-test -dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

however to make this test work:

speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav

i had to remove the asound-pulse.conf file. after removing this file the second test (speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav) works. removing this file also solved the problem of missing sound in videos videos played in firefox. the original contents of the asound-pulse.conf file was:

pcm.pulse {
type pulse
ctl.pulse {


the problem is i can't play any audio files (.wav or .mp3) in banshee.

i am sure the .wav file i use while testing is ok as i can play it with aplay.

when i try playing the .wav file, banshee does not complain about any missing codecs. the slider moves as the file is being played. i have also started banshee with the --debug option, but there were no errors in the output.

so my guess is that banshee is playing the files, it's just that it sends the data to the wrong device/channell or whatever it is.

all of the gstreamer packages i have installed are from the packman repository.

when i run gstreamer-properties, the only setting on the audio tab that gives me sound is: alsa (for the plugin) and default (for the device).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: (11.2 Gnome) VLC Ability To Use Qt Broken

May 23, 2010

I'm having issues getting VLC to work again (openSuSE 11.2 GNOME). It used to work fine, but I think I broke its ability to use Qt when I was attempting to upgrade it and install some dev tools for something I wanted to try. When I run VLC, I get these errors:

[0x81b3090] main generic error: no dialogs provider module matched "any"
[0x806f758] skins2 interface error: no suitable dialogs provider found (hint: compile the qt4 plugin, and make sure it is loaded properly)
[0x806f758] skins2 interface: skin: subX author: Martin Poehlmann

From what I can tell, the Qt4 plugin is in the correct location (/usr/lib/vlc/gui/, so I'm not sure what's causing it to fail. As far as I can tell, it's some conflict among Qt packages between existing ones and ones that I tried to upgrade. Is there a way to get a list of all qt packages that come installed by default and their versions so I can attempt to revert back to it?

I have a strange problem with sound, or maybe It's ok, I dunno. The problem is. The first launched program that uses sound, "takes over" the sound or smth, anyway, all programs, started next, just not play sound at all. The only solution is to close all programs using sound and start one I need to "listen". When I get into sound settings menu and see the list of programs using sound, I see just one started first.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Creating Wallpaper Slideshows In Gnome

May 16, 2011

In my Gnome 2.32.1 running in opensuse 11.4, when I go to select wallpaper for my desktop, one of the options is a space-based slideshow. The files reside in /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos. When I go there, there are the jpegs with an xml file that seems to controle the slideshow. Is there some kind of utility for creating this xml file? To create one manually, especially with a lot of pics, seems kinda cumbersome.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.3 GNOME, TOTEM And BANSHEE No Sound On .mp4 And Quicktime?

Jul 17, 2010

I just did a fresh install of openSUSE 11.3 32bit GNOME on my notebook and everything runs fine...yet

But there is an issue with the sound playback on mp4's and quicktime (apple trailers) that I was not able to fix.

I added the Packman 11.3 repo via Yast -> Software Repositories -> Add... -> Community Repositories

Then I used zypper to get the related gstreamer-plugins ffmpeg faad vlc w32codec-all libmp4v2...

So far the media playback seem good, except the issue of "no sound with gstreamer related media players on quicktime and mp4"...

I set all available/related/installed packages to "Packman" (Yast -> Software Management), did zypper refresh + zypper up but I am simply not able to get sound from gstreamer...It works fine in VLC though!

Some google and forum research showed that it's an issue that has occurred over the recent years but I could not found a proper working solution.

If I run totem from the terminal I get the following output (plus a windows asking for permission to search for the required codec 'MPEG-4 AAC Decoder'...but it is not able to find one!):

# totem --debug --play TV-20100717-2030-1301.h264.mp4
(totem:6888): Totem-DEBUG: Received SaveYourself(SmSaveLocal, !Shutdown, SmInteractStyleNone, !Fast) in state idle

(totem:6888): Totem-DEBUG: totem_playlist_add_one_mrl (): TV-20100717-2030-1301.h264.mp4 (null) (null)

The last Message is interesting "All missing plugins are blacklisted..." hmmm I did not blacklist any plugins...where can you see these blacklist? Is that the point, the plugin is there but blacklisted?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Sound In Gnome - Installing Xine Backend ?

Jul 23, 2011

In Gnome and XFCE I always have a choppy music playback. The music is never played smoothly. There is always hesitations in the playback, as if the CPU is running on 100% and cannot cope with the system load.

One of the reasons for that is (in my case) Pulseaudio.

Another reason is Gstreamer. When I choose Gstreamer as backend in KDE, I get the same choppy musicplayback as in Gnome or XFCE. With Xine as backend in KDE, everything is fine. So my conclusion is: with Xine, the sound would be fine in Gnome too.

So, I wonder if it is possible to use Xine as backend in Gnome too. Does anyone have experience with running Xine in Gnome and/or XFCE? What do I need to do to set Gnome/XFCE, so that it uses Xine instead of Gstreamer?

Or is there maybe a special setting, I have to apply? In gstreamer-properties I have tried all possible settings, but this didnīt change anything to the quality of sound.

My experience is also: this choppy sound is hardware-independend. It doesnīt matter which hardware I use, the sound is choppy. It is also distro-independend. The sound is choppy in openSUSE (gnome and in KDE with applied Gstreamer backend), in Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Fedora with Gnome, Linux Mint with Gnome.

OpenSUSE Install :: What Is Difference Between OpenSUSE Desktop And Server?

Dec 21, 2009

I am new to Linux. I want to set up a home file/media server using Linux and have been investigating the possibility of using OpenSUSE for this task for a couple days now. I posted up some questions over at linux questions, but figured this one would be better suited for the OpenSUSE forum. My question is simple, is there any fundamental difference between OpenSUSE Server, and OpenSUSE desktop?

What I mean is, is there any difference to the basic programming of the operating system. From what I gather, when you install a Linux Distro for a server, it is just a striped down version of the desktop install. It has no GUI, and installs the complete bare minimum of software to get your server up and running. Is this correct? I am asking these questions because, as I said, I am new to Linux. I am not comfortable using command line only, and would very much like to install the desktop version of OpenSUSE, plus Samba, openSSH and Webadmin, then use that configuration for a server. Would setting up OpenSUSE as I stated above be the same as using the server install, just more "bloated?" Or is the server version of OpenSUSE coded differently?For example, comparing Windows Vista to Windows Home Server. Windows Vista isn't practical to use as a home server OS, simply because it was never coded to be one. Where as Home Server comes with software and is setup to be a server.

From what I understand, and I could be wrong, and please correct me if I am. Linux is much different. Any Linux distro can be a server, even the desktop version. You just need to get the proper programs (like Samba, SSH, Webadmin) for the job. The people who use the Server version, simply just want something less bloated then the desktop version, but the desktop version works just as good as a server if you have the proper hardware? I was debating on putting Windows Home server on the machine, but very much want to learn Linux, and figure this is as good of an opportunity as any. It also helps that a desktop install of OpenSUSE takes less resources then Windows Home Server.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Difference Between Native And Virtual

Jun 9, 2010

I've been running Sony Vegas in VirtualBox. My machine is dual core 2ghz and has 2 GB RAM so the VB gets 90MB video and 950MB system. XP is 32 bits. I also have the identical set up installed natively. The native version gets the full 2 GB system and 512 video. A non scientific test tells me the VirtualBox system is faster. My camera is a new T2i which produces .MOV files. The only program that can read them without stutter is VLC in Ubuntu. Quicktime in both Windows version stutters all over the place. VLC in Windows is so bad I deleted it.

To the point: I'm going to build a new system for video editing using at least 8 GB RAM and Windows 7 (Sorry, I don't have the patience to wait for Lumeira or Lightworks). I like the fact that I can be in both environments without booting. But, I'd like some real world advise about this. In a pure 64 bit environment, will I be better off in a dual-boot situation or virtual? I'm reluctant to load up W7 on my current system because of the hassle associated with getting a new registration for the new system.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Any Difference Between FAAC And LibFAAC?

Mar 22, 2011

Is there a difference between faac and libfaac? I have an iPod Shuffle.
One of these:-
It plays m4a tracks created using faac encoder.
Like this:-
ffmpeg -i foo.flac -f wav - | faac -o test1.m4a -b 152 -

But it won't play tracks created using libfaac.
Like this:-
ffmpeg -i foo.flac -acodec libfaac -ab 152k test2.m4a
I've compared the MediaInfo for the two files.

They look very similar, faac does a more thorough job of tagging. Does ffmpeg do something to the file when it's converting or muxing with libfaac to make it unplayable by the Shuffle?

I've uploaded the two files.
test1.m4a is created using faac
test2.m4a is created using libfaac
They are here:- [URL]. What's the difference?

Using Ubuntu Karmic 9.10
FAAC 1.26.1
FFmpeg version git-N-28456-g1c31b26
