Software :: Podcast Grabber And Meta Tags ?

Mar 22, 2011

I have looked at several Podcast retrieving applications. However, none I have found so far do anything good with the Podcast information.

Almost every podcast contains tags that could be populated into metadata tags, it would seem, fairly easily. Having a podcast grabber that did so would certainly simplify using them on my iPod.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Extract The Meta Tags From An Audio File?

Mar 16, 2011

If I convert an audio file to a different format (such as mp3) using a pipe I lose the tags.

ffmpeg -i <filename> -f wav - | lame - output.mp3
If I knew the tags of the input file I could put them back using a program such as id3v2

Ubuntu :: Reverting 10.04 To 9.10?

May 26, 2010

Way to revert my 10.04 ( to 9.10.

<rant>10.04 has been a disaster for my Acer laptop. NVidia must hate Ubuntu because any time I try to load into, the damn thing black-screens and dies. "works", but I get flooded with errors related to the generic nvidia drivers. And I've specifically NOT installed the proprietary drivers because I know from past experience that they kill my computer, regardless of which Ubuntu version I use. Plus 10.04 is just... why did they change everything? The default color scheme makes my eyes bleed, and even the close/minimize/maximize buttons are in the wrong place. But that's minor... The real problem is that my graphics capabilities are shot to hell, and since this is a computer used for work-related image processing, I need 9.10 back.</rant>

Reinstalling from disk is not an option since any install disc (alt or otherwise) newer than 8.04 fails. (A fresh install of 9.10 involved installing 8.04 => 8.10 => 9.04 => 9.10) Is there a simple apt-get type command I can use to revert it?

Jun 26, 2010

After one of latest update I have problem with meta keys (like shift, ctrl and alt) in KDE. When I press one of this keys, it sometimes stays active after release and deactivates only after I press it again. It's annoying especially while I'm writing some code (php or html) and meta keys randomly stays active after release.

Ubuntu Installation :: Alt/Win Meta Key Option Not Working After Natty Upgrade

May 4, 2011

After upgrading to Natty, my Alt/Win meta key option is no longer working.

I'm using System Settings -> Keyboard -> Layouts -> Options -> Alt/Win key behavior and selecting "Meta is mapped to Win keys".

However the Win key still just pops up the files-and-folders window, and meta is not there.

This worked fine in 10.10. Need this with Emacs...

Ubuntu :: Reverting From Gnome 3 To 11.04?

I basically accidentally installed gnome3 on ubuntu tweak (I didn't notice the box was checked) and next time I started up I could only use the gnome 3 environment which is massively buggy. I wish to revert back to 11.04 (without a clean install, since I have a lot of files I need to keep). I have tried purging the gnome3 team ppa but I get the following error:

"sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3/

Debian :: Complete Removal Of Meta-packages Possible?

May 7, 2010

I'm wondering if complete removal of meta-packages, that being the package itself AND all of its dependencies, is possible in one command of aptitude and/or apt-get. For instance, if I have the whole kde installed, and wish to remove that whole load and replace it with the smaller kdebase, can I do this in two commands (IE, "aptitude remove kde", and then followed by "aptitude install kdebase"). The preceding commands wouldn't work, because just removing the initial meta-package would not remove its dependent packages. BUT, I'm wondering if there is a way to remove a meta-package AND its dependent packages all in one command (rather than having to go through individually removing each one).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't See Files Musicbrainz Or EasyTag - Can't Edit Meta Data?

Dec 19, 2010

I am having some problems editing the meta data tags of some music files. The problem is that i am unable to get some files to show up in either EasyTag or Musicbrainz. Problem is when i go to 'add folder/file' i can't see the songs while browsing.

From what i have observed it seems that the songs for which this is an issue are those which i have converted using sound converter. Here it seems that it is the same files in both programmes so i am thinking that there must be something i can do to the file to have it be recognised.

Ubuntu Installation :: Reverting To PHP 5.2 On Lucid?

May 11, 2010

After upgrading to Lucid, I found that I still had a need for php 5.2, instead of the 5.3 that is installed during the Lucid upgrade. I tried the method found here:


I added in /etc/apt/preferences.d/php all the packages that I use for php, including libapache2-mod-php5, installed, and ran a2enmod php5 before restarting apache. However, my browser still tells me if I want to download php files on my server. I cleared the browser cache, a2enmod'ed again, restarted apache2 again, and still the same.

how to get php scripts running again on apache.

EDIT: I should note I can get SOME php files parsed by apache, but some are not parsed. All files reside in some subdirectory of /var/www/.

Ubuntu :: Fglrx Reverting To Low Resolution?

Jun 7, 2010

I recently reinstalled using the latest "respin" CD ISO. Before that, I had other problems with 10.04, but X and fglrx worked perfectly.

Now, X always comes up in 1600x1200 instead of the monitor native 1920x1200. I am still using the same on-board Radeon 4200. Supposedly this display adapter is very well supported by Linux???

I did an aticonfig --initial as suggested in the Known Lucid Lynx issues/bugs with workarounds thread, but when I restarted X I got a black screen, and when I rebooted, even though xorg.conf now says

Option "PreferredMode" "1920x1200"

The system still comes up in 1600x1200. Note it is on DVI and I never touched the hardware or put a bad cable on it since it was working with the first install of 10.04.

When I go into Catalyst Control Center, Display Manager, Display Properties tab, the highest resolution available is 1600x1200. I hand-edited X11 and restarted and ran for a while in 1920x1200, but that no longer works. Now I just get a black screen whenever I restart X, and it always starts in 1600x1200.

How do I convince fglrx that I really have a 1920x1200 monitor? (VP2330wb). It is really very blurry in 1600x1200.

EDIT: Ran get-edid, got:

get-edid: get-edid version 2.0.0
Performing real mode VBE call
Interrupt 0x10 ax=0x4f00 bx=0x0 cx=0x0

Ubuntu :: Appearance Settings Reverting By Themselves?

How can I make it stay on None?Edit: I just created another user on this pc. After reboot it stays on None for this user, suggesting it's a per-user setting I need to fix, not a system wide one.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Install - Not Meta-package

Apr 3, 2011

I was using Lenny until now, and I liked it very much. Now I've seen that squeeze is finally released, so I decided to make a fresh install of squeeze, as I made some mistakes while installing lenny, like downloading kde meta-package (full of useless programs), small root partition etc...Now, I want to install Squeeze with KDE, but not the meta-package, just the required programs in order to run the GUI, and then I want to select which programs to install by myself... How can I do that?

Software :: Meta Tracker Never Finishes Indexing (resource Hog)?

Jan 31, 2011

I came out with this issue as I saw that my CPU was most of the time between 70 and 80 percent of usage, all by some process called tracker-extract. Maybe when tracker is committing its initial index this is admissible, but this situation repeats every time I boot my notebook and it lasts at least 3 or 4 hours, or until I tell tracker to stop indexing. I hard-reseted tracker to see if there was any corrupt indexes but with no luck, behavior was the same. BTW, this issue wasn't present with ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu :: Screen Resolution Keeps Reverting To 640X480

Feb 10, 2010

I am test driving Ubuntu 9.04 (Desktop) - the screen resolution always pops up as 800 x 600 - Preference Display tells me there is a different graphics driver (which I have installed) and set to 1280 X 800 which then works till I re-boot. I changed it in NVIDIA X Server Settings. When I try to save to X configuration I get a message "Unable to create new X config backup file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'." - which I presume is because I am not in superuser mode - how do I set up a superuser account (is this even possible?) or is there a nioce simple way for a real newbie to fix this?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Keep Reverting Back To US Layout

Apr 2, 2010

I've got an UK keyboard, and every time I boot up, Ubuntu keep reverting back to the US keyboard layout which is annoying me. I open up keyboard preferences, the UK layout is already selected. So I delete the US layout, click on "Apply System-wide" and it works. Until I reboot and the US layout is back in there! I suspect it's something to do with not having admin privileges to permanently save the changes - if this is the case, why it doesn't ask me for my password, or give me a chance to escalate my privileges or something?

Ubuntu :: Reverting Kubuntu Usplash Theme From 10.04

Apr 25, 2010

A while back had installed the kubuntu-desktop package onto my normal Ubuntu 9.10 install in order to use several KDE apps (mostly KGet). It changed my bootsplash to the Kubuntu one at that point which I found mildly annoying (as I still use the standard Gnome interface - I just wanted the KDE libs/apps installed). Anyways, I've updated to version 10.04 RC and the Kubuntu splash persisted (I thought the upgrade would replace it), and now the colors on it are corrupted.I found some instructions on how to revert it (sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so), but that command doesn't seem to work in 10.04 anymore.

Not sure if this is normal, but I'm also having a problem where when logged into Gnome, when inside of a KDE app my cursor theme reverts to default until I leave that windows. Pretty strange. I thought it was picking up the cursor theme from KDE for a while but after logging in there I noticed that KDE is not using the same default theme. Not sure if this is a normal problem or if it's just a side affect of me upgrading rather than doing a clean install of 10.04 (my 9.10 install itself was an upgrade from 9.04).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Choice Keeps Reverting?

Jun 9, 2010

I converted my parents to use Ubuntu on their laptop, and they seem to like it. One minor issue though is that the microphone input preference keeps reverting, so every time they want to use an internet phone, they have to reset it manually by going to System/Preferences/Sound/Input and choosing the external USB microphone. Then they can launch the phone program (Skype in this case, but it doesn't matter which one.) My Dad asked me that he doesn't have to do this on Windows so why does he have to with Ubuntu? I am hoping there is a way for me to fix it so he doesn't have to. (We don't have a microphone that plugs into the "internal audio analog stereo" line.)

When they finish talking, they unplug the external microphone and this is when the preference seems to revert to the "internal audio analog stereo" setting, which makes sense, but when the external microphone gets plugged back in, it would be great if it "remembered" it. Is there a way to make this happen automatically?
