Ubuntu 10.10. All things have been working well and as expected until tonight. I was updating some flac files using easyTAG (AAC), adding pictures and changing things a little, then dropping them into a Sansa Fuze+. All things I've done with this setup before and with no problems. I close easyTAG and try to open: Places/ Pictures. Instead of the normal brouser up pops easytag at the pictures directory.
I test all other Places. For each Place selected easyTAG opens instead of the usual brouser. I go to synaptic and remove easyTAG and then restart the system. All is now normal again (except that easyTAG is missing). I reload easyTAG and once again it has put itself as the preferred tool to view directories. How do I restore things to normal and what have I done?
I recently switched my usb external soundcard from an M-Audio Fast Track Pro to an Edirol UA-25EX (i can get 24bit working on it - that's why). After making the switch, all audio programs are working just fine except for Audacious. When i try to play audio, i get 00:00 and no playing. The output plugin is ALSA and the audio device is UA-25EX. I don't understand why it's not playing the audio.
I use Ubuntu 10.04 32 bits and I have one keyboard Logitech Comfort Wave 450 with some multimedia keys (PLAY/PAUSE, VOLUME UP/DOWN, MUTE,.This multimedia keys works well in Rhythmbox but in Qmmp and Audacious2 doesn't. I explain this: Start my Gnome session. I open Qmmp/Audacious with one playlist charged, I press PLAY/PAUSE in my keyboard, but Qmmp/Audacious doesn't play. Close Qmmp/Audacious. I open again Qmmp/Audacious and now, when I press PLAY/PAUSE, it works! It also works if I open Rhythmbox before to open Qmmp/Audacious.
I really like using Audacious, but Rhythmbox (which isn't as horrible as iTunes, admittedly, but I still don't think much of that style of player) is set up as the default audio player on my laptop. I'm running Lucid Lynx on it. When I go to System > Preferences > Preferred Applications, Audacious doesn't come up in the drop-down menu under the Multimedia tab. Anyone know of any way I can change this from Rhythmbox to Audacious?
No matter which skin I choose for audacious, it looks mostly purple. Even *.wsz skins that I have downloaded from winamp. Here's the skin the way it should look: BenuAmp.png (14.53 KiB) Viewed 419 times
I have a very fresh and basic install of the weekly jessie build (this week). I've installed nvidia drivers, some non-free plugins, virtualbox, basic system tools, etc. The issue is while playing in audacious, the song will freeze for about 5 seconds. It's always around 5 seconds. Sometimes it's once or twice per song, sometimes I'll play 10 songs without it happening. BTW, all music is on a separate hard drive on an NTFS partition.
In audacious, I'm using the Winamp skin. I noticed when trying to play for the first time, it wouldn't play unless I changed the setting in audacious to use ALSA. That was the only way I could go to Settings and select my SPDIF digital output. But then doing that, other sounds no longer worked (in iceweasel). So I downloaded pavu, was able to select my onboard digital stereo output, set audacious back to pulse audio, and everything now works. Only issue is audacious is freezing every now and then... Is there a driver or module that I need to check for? Is there a way to get everything to use ALSA?
I once tried AV Linux for the low latency kernel but since it was based on Wheezy and I wasn't familiar with repos, everything was extremely outdated, so I migrated away. Should I need an LL kernel for 320kbps audio playback? I haven't sat and watched a full mkv yet, some of those have 1.5mpbs audio.
I just got done installing Debian Squeeze on a system..Everything seems to work where audio is concerned, except for audacious.I can get streaming music from vlc/totem as well as play music files (mp3, ogg, flac, ect.).I was wondering if anyone else experiences this problem..It should be noted that I have the Debian multimedia repository enabled as well.When running audacious from terminal and trying to open up an mp3 file I get this message:"madplug: open_audio failed: XMMS reverse compatibility output plugin."
In my home network i have installed NSLU2 in my router , and the hard drives have all my music stored in them. When i try to open a music file with RhythmBox everything its fine. But when i open them with audacious nothing happens. I can play music files that are stored in my laptop , but not from my hard drive from NSLU2.
Salutations,I've been struggling with getting audacious working for the past hour. I'm using synaptic to install it. When trying to run it from the bash, I'm getting the following error:
Code: audacious: error while loading shared libraries: libmowgli.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.I tried to make /usr/lib/libmowgli.so->libmowgli.so.1 link, but it didn't help. Tried reinstalling audacious/libmowgli and a few others packages, but in vain, too.
I moved some video files to a fedora samba server and when I opened one tonight my screen went black and my hard disk went nuts. I saw something about caught unattended installation right before my system rebooted.
I found this under auth.log Aug 29 02:59:39 polkitd(authority=local): Registered Authentication Agent for session /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Session2 (system bus name :1.30 [/$
For some reason, a while a go my flash player (Adobe, ubuntu software center install) doesn't seem to like ...... Whenever I try to watch video's on ..... I get the error that Shockwave flash player has crashed. This also occurs when I try to maximize videos on hulu. It crashes in both chrome and firefox, and the funny thing is I can watch ..... videos that are embedded in other sites, just not on ......com. Does anybody know what might have happened?
I've read a few threads, but I'm not sure that I have found the answer. I have a Dell E4310 laptop (company issued). It comes with the Intel HD Grpahics chipset. I've read people giving it great reviews so I am hopeful.I am running Natty. My first mystery was "what happened to the enhanced desktop effects", but I found a post saying they were removed in 11.04 -- apparently they just work if your video supports it. I've installed all the compiz packages including the enhancements. I am able to go into the Compiz Settings Manager and see all the modules. I am able to turn them on and off and change the settings, but anytime I try to use any of the keyboard shortcuts nothing happens.
I'm still relatively new to the world of Linux. Can someone tell me how I figure out whether or not my graphics card can support Compiz in 11.04?
In FC 15 x64, I can no longer issue "shutdown -rF now". I get tagged on the "-F" option."-F" seems to have disappeared from the man page as well. The "-F" option was to force a "fsck" on my next boot.What happened to the "-F" option? Has fsck disappeared when we went from ext3 to ext4?
After a terrible problem I had with x-server, I decided to opt for a clean install. So, naturally I poped in the 10.10 LiveCD (from Canonical), deleted the Ubuntu Partiton (ext4) and swap, and entered the installer. I have a 40gb Vista partition, 90gb media partition, and 20gb unallocated free space. Once I get to allocate drive space in the installation, I get three options - Install alongside other operating systems, erase and use the entire disk, or specify partitions manually. If I click install alongside other operation systems, it tries to take space away from my media partition to install ubuntu. I'm not too advanced with Ubuntu, so I don't think I'm going to specify my own. I don't know how much to give swap etc, etc, etc.What ever happened to use the largest amount of continuous free space? I have 20gb free I would love ubuntu to use.
I'd like to know, what happened to this tool? Till F10 this tool was responsible for automounting Usb drives/Cdrom drives that were connected before I logged into the System via gdm. Since F11, this feature seems to be gone. I recently noticed that my external usb disk stopped to "automagically" appear on the desktop after login. Now I have to powercycle the disk (switch off, switch on) to have it appear on the desktop again. Is there an alternative tool to gnome-volume-properties, or do I really have to play around with hal to get this back? Doesn't really makes to me any sense to remove this feature.
