i jsut installed opensuse kde and xfce and i cannot mount dvd/cd 's. i am using opensuse 11.3 32 bit. i added my user to the cdrom drive group but still no luck. How to get the cd to mount by jsut clicking on the dolphin icon?
I am running Ubuntu 11.04, fresh install (32bit) on a Toshiba Satellite pro laptop and I am unable to get Ubuntu to recognize the camera is plugged in.When I ran 10.10 it was a simple plug and play approach and I have searched the forums for some guidance with no success.
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.)
So the title pretty much sums it up. She is running a pangolin performance which came with lucid while I am running a pangolin performance which came with karmic and i upgraded to lucid (bought before her). For some reason hulu always worked for me, so I was trying to fix it on her computer too, but somehow one of the commands I told her to run made her computer not be able to recognize that her built in webcam exists anymore.
The reason that this is so hard is that I don't remember which commands I told her to run, but one of them was the instructions from post #5 on this page: [URL]. But I don't know how messing with flash stuff could have possibly screwed up her computer detecting her webcam. The drivers are definitely installed for webcam, however when she 'locate uvcvideo' it tells her that permission is denied, so the problem might be that her computer isn't giving her the permission to access the webcam drivers to use the webcam, just an idea.
How well to Ipods and Iphones work with 10.04 or 10.10 alpha? Has it got to the stage i can just plug it in and sync? My friend who uses Ubuntu wants to switch back to windows cause he just got an Ipod, Plus, I'm getting sick of Rockbox now and want the normal ipod firmware again on my ipod.
My K3B doesn't seem to recognise a blank CD in the drive tray.
I'm on OS 11.2, K3B & codecs from 11.2 packman, and 11.2 KDE4 factory (ie kde4.4).
When I put a blank cd in, the kde4 device notifier shows me a blank cd and offers to create a project with k3b. I create a data project & click burn, the burn dialog has a greyed out Burn button, and the media selector dropdown says please insert an empty or appendable medium.
If I eject & re-insert the disc at this point, the device notifier again tells me I've inserted a blank cd, k3b's dialog freezes for a second (seems to notice something has happened) but still does not list my cd and remains as it was before.
k3bsetup reports no problems. Burning from commandline (cdrecord) works fine. Dolphin also knows about the blank cd. I've burned to these discs before with no problems (K3B used to work quite recently, perhaps 4 or 5 weeks ago). Updates have been applied in the meantime.
Do you know any dvd playback app that can recognize inputs from a remote control (like play, pause e.t.c) and at the same time when I launch it to check the dvd rom and resume playback from last time. I used vlc but it does not seem that works like the way I do.
I have Timidity++ 2.12.0 in Windows and a Soundfont customized by myself named Collection.sf2. everything I had to write in Timidity.cfg file was:
dir ctimidity dir ctimiditysndfont soundfont Collection.sf2
And just with that Timidity recognizes all presets in all banks of my soundfont. (This soundfont has more than 600 presets in more than 30 different banks.) I tried Timidity++ 2.13 for Windows with the same soudnfont and cfg file and it didn't work. 2.13 version recognized only the 127 presets of the first bank. so I went back to 2.12.0 version. The same now happens when I installed Timidity in Opensuse. etc/timidity.cfg file points to /usr/share/timidity/timidity.cfg file. In this last file I wrote the following:
dir /home/fernando/Soundfonts soundfont Collection.sf2
I connected Rosegarden to Timidity and tried presets from several banks that use to be recognized automatically when I connect Rosegarden to Qsynth. But in Timidity no matter what bank I choose the sound comes only from the presets of the first bank. I tried the same connecting vkybd (a virtual midi keyboard found in multimedia repo) to timidity and even if i choose bank 2, 8, 16... the sound is always from instrumens of bank 0. it seems that Timidity 2.12 was the only version that recognized bank variations automatically just like Qsynth does. I could not succeed in this in any later version, neither in Windows nor in Linux.
I'm sure this is a painfully naive question, but I don't suppose it can possibly lower my reputationFor Good Reasons,use a custom build of the audio editor audacity rather than the version in the openSUSErepositories. What I can't seem to figure out is how to get it to find and load the LADSPA signal processing plug-ins. I have the regulation ladspa libraries (1.13-6.2) from the Oss repository installed. The files reside at /usr/lib64/ladspa . audacity is built with ladpsa support enabled, and indeed reports that it is enabled if I look at the Effects tab under preferences. I have even entered the ladspa library path in a "ladspa.conf" file under /etc/ld/so.conf.d, which may or may not help. Regardless, I don't seem to see the ladpsa effects listed when I run audacity
Recently updated KDE to the last version available, v4.6.4. Apparently Dolphin lost the ability to mount ntfs/fat32 volumes. It was working great with 4.6.3. I'm getting this error while trying to mount an external HDD formatted as NTFS:
An error occurred while accessing 'LaCie', the system responded: org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.Failed: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
have made VLC my only audio player, and while it does lodge itself in the right-hand corner of the taskbar (and displays the song title) I find it quite irritating to have to right click then scroll up to skip songs etc. I did a random Google search and came across an old program called Music Applet, which is now under development by the Panflute community.After a full night and half of this afternoon downloading various libraries, I finally managed to ./configure, make, and make install. However, now that it seems to be finished (oh, BTW, for some reason I was unable to "install," it wouldn't recognize the command, so I went directly from "make" to "make install," not sure if that's affecting this or not) I can't seem to figure out how to add Panflute to my panel.My ls in panflute-0.6.2 reads:
My CD/DVD-drive used to work when I started using OpenSuse, but lately when I try to play a CD or DVD the icon doesn't show up and I can't open the disc using vlc.
It sounds that the system tries to mount the disc over and over and I get an error message that says "Couldn't mount audio disc (in Swedish)" (if that's what I'm trying to do) and it says something about a dbus error. Sometimes nothing happens at all when I put a CD in the drive.
I'm using OpenSuse 11.2 and Gnome 2.28.2 on an Acer Timeline 5810TG.
I first noted a few weeks ago I couldn't mount my NTFS partitions using dolphin. At the time I was having problems with windows, so I thought - naturally, they are marked as dirty, no biggie-
However, I still can't mount them and I know they are clean. I get the error: "filesystem is neither well know nor in /proc/filesystem nor in /etc/filesystems" which is strange since I can mount just fine in the console using mount -t ntfs-3g.
I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 64 bit version on my Dell Laptop Studio XPS 16. My USB mouse is working nicely. However, as I inserted MTS USB MODEM, I found that device is not mounted. "dmesg" shows USB modem in sdb emulating as scsi10 drive. I tried with 'fdisk -l" which does not show the device. 'lsusb' shows the device ID. Itried to mount /dev/sdb to /media/disk after creating a directory /media/disk, but of no use.
When I plug-in any kind of usb storage device an error massage appears
Unable to mount (name of the devise) DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending and the window of the devise opens several times. Everything working just fine, I can store files and read them, but I don't want to close all the windows that opens-up each time I plug some thing.
I am using Opensuse11 and i have created an lvm involving two disks /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc. I have created a lvm volume group of 5 GB with the above 2 disks. The problem is it is unable to mount at boot time. It is giving the following error messages:-
mount: special device /dev/TST_VOL/VOL1 does not exist ... ...
been searching google and forums for about 5 hours now, and can't figure this one out, I have a server running opensuse 11.2 sharing various NFS directories, I have one laptop that is running 11.2 and I have no problem getting my NFS shares from the server.On my other laptop that is running 11.3, I had the shares working at one point, but changed things around and added a new HD to the server, now I can NOT get this thing to work, I have tried everything I could find to read on it. Started and stopped the NFS server and exportfs -a, and checked /var/logs/messages on server and nothing about this laptop (192.168.0.102 suse 11.3) trying to connect.On this laptop, I have deleted all the shares, and tried to re-add them but still get this error everytime.on server /etc/export:
I have two systems, one running 11.2 x64, and the other running 11.3 x64. on both systems, I've lost the ability to mount internal partitions "on-the-fly" from the Dolphin panel.Trying to mount via Dolphin has always given me this error on the 11.3 system, but only recently started happening in the 11.2 system after a recent "zypper dup" (using the "Stable" KDE 4.4 repo).If others are experiencing this same issue, please let me know so I can file a bug report. Please note that the error only occurs for internal partitions, and external drives work fine.
I double click "My Computer" and Konqueror goes to sysinfo:/I then try to click on one of my partitions (ones that are already mounted or ones that are not)eeted with the error;There is no application installed that can open files of the type block device inode/blockdevice).Do you want to try to install one?It goes through the repo and finds nothing.I love openSUSE and this one error is the only thing keeping me from being able to use this release.
Previously, everytime I insert a USB drive it automatically mounts. But now I am getting this error:
"Unable to mount 8.0 GB Media DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
Also, previously my CD/DVD works properly. But now everytime I insert a disk, this is what I get:
"Unable to mount TOSHIBA
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3, everything seems to be working fine except that my other hard disk partitions are un mountable as my normal user. I used to be able to click on the drive in Dolphin and it would ask for the root password to mount it, but now it gives the error that the action is denied by org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action, result) What do I do to fixed this? I have checked as many settings as I can and can't find it. I would like to avoid editing the Policykit.conf file manually if possible (if that even is the right file).
