Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid Does Not Work Right With Dvd-rw Media?
Jun 4, 2010
When I put a blank rewritable media in the drive no icon appears on the desktop and if I try to burn an iso image, for example, with the option that the right finds no brasero asks to insert media and some in the unit. Another problem is that brasero leaves the locked drawer of the unit for a few minutes after erase dvd-rw media. Is there any solution to these two problems?
I have a logitech dinovo wireless keyboard with those extra multimedia keys on it like Volume Up, Volume Down, and Mute. They didn't do anything so I installed KeyTouch. I was able to select my keyboard from the list in KeyTouch, and if everything was working right then at that point all my extra keys would work. But they still didn't do anything. So I went into the Keytouch editor to make my own custom profile. You click add to add a new key and then it asks you to press a key. So I press the key (Mute) and it recognizes it, and then you select what action you want it to do. I did this for Mute, Volume Up and Volume Down. But yet they still don't work!
Now obviously it detects my key presses (keycode) just fine when I added the new key. So it should do the assigned action when I press that key. What I *want* it to do is mute or change the volume of the Headphones. But as I said that wasn't working at all for some reason. So to narrow it down I instead set the Mute key to simply launch firefox. But it still doesn't work. So there is some disconnect... in the keytouch editor it's detecting the key just fine, but afterwards when you press Mute it doesn't do the action it's supposed to.
Has anyone had experience building a dedicated multimedia center? I know Its going to be ubuntu based and probably run xbmc. I've seen a pc case to use but I dont know if the remote control for it can work under ubuntu or any other distro. Has anyone had success making a remote control for an ubuntu based media center work?
I just installed 10.04 and am pleased w/ things, for the most part.
However, I cannot get a DVD disc to play (a movie, for instance) or be recognized unless I shut down the system and restart (provided I have already launched a Web video, or something). The DVD-ROM is dead to the world as far as disc recognition goes.
Things were just great in Karmic so this is completely confusing to me.
I have bought a laptop 2 months ago with pre installed windows7 and installed Ubuntu 10.04 64bit but still didnt get sound from the speakers. With headphones everything is OK . I have unmuted everything and searched forums but nothing so far. In windows I get speaker sound so it is not hardware problem. In alsamixer it appears I have 2 soundcards, one HDA -intel (chip Realtek ALC272) and a second one HDA nvidia ( a virtual one propably from my nvidia VGA ) that lacks controls . With lspci -v , it appears both use the same driver :Kernel driver in use: HDA IKernel modules: snd-hda-intel . Tried to disable the first one from bios but it didnt help I also tried sound adjustment in preferences -> sound and gnome-alsamixer, nothing From gnome alsamixer, when I mute speakers, the headphones also get mute so may be the system doesnt recognize speakers and headphones separately ? May be it has to do with config files but my linux knowledge is low
Upon upgrading to Lucid from Karmic, my dual head setup doesn't work anymore with the new 2.6.32 kernel. In the previous kernel 2.6.31, everything works as expected (also when I boot Lucid with that kernel). On 2.6.32, the only thing I get is two clones. Is there some new type of configuration required that I missed or should I still compile some new kernel module???
Code: rogier@rogier-desktop:~$ lspci |grep VGA 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 If [Radeon 9000] (rev 01) My xorg.conf, which worked fine on Karmic: Code: Section "Monitor"
I currently have a Hp NC8430 laptop running 10.04 and this one is amazing and love it, but my video card wont allow me to hook up an external monitor. I can enable compiz, but nothing else. When i install the ATI driver from the website for catalyst it allows the external monitor to work, but now compiz wont work? I dont understand what i am doing wrong and would like if someone could help me. My Video car is a ATI mobility Radeon x1600 and is not supported anymore which sucks so if anyone knows of where to get opensource drivers that would be awesome or a way to set this up. I would hate to have to use another distro, but i need external support.
Ubuntu10.10.i want a media player with all media codecs.it should able to play all formats of videos and audios so please suggest me a media player.(i used km player in windows i want a media player like that)
/media has 2 similar entries for my external hard drive after I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid. One reads "My Book" and the other "My Book_". "My Book" is owned by root and I can't access it. Unfortunately all my shortcuts and programs previously linked to this hard drive are complaining they don't have permission to access the drive (mediatomb and deluge, mostly).
How can I get rid of the extra "My Book_" and reclaim "My Book"?
I am installing server 10.04.1 (non-gui) on an old Dell box. All goes well until it gets to the point of "Install the base system". I get a dialog "Media Change" with asks: Please insert the disk labeled 'Ubuntu-Server 10.04.1 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release i386 (20100816)' in the drive /cdrom/ and press enter. I thought that was the disk I had inserted. I looked at the disk in another machine and it appears to be labeled simply "Ubuntu-Server 10.04.1 LTS i386". I did a check of the media before starting the install and have even tried a different DVD reader in the machine as I thought it might be an issue with the drive failing to read the disk. I again and again get the error shown above.
I can insert a " burned " CD and it boots and plays right away , but if I insert a purchased music CD or other Purchased media it just scans and does nothing . I've gone to "places " and opened the CD drive and get the message " no media found "or Insert media .Also in the properties tab of the CD drive type is "unknown " and permissions can't be determined .
I have an NTFS volume on my system which I regularly access from within Ubuntu 9.10, mostly to play the plethora of DVD images (*.iso files) stored there. I use VLC Media Player to watch the content. For some reason, VLC's file browser only shows a small subset of the files by default. I have to select "All Files" instead of "Media Files" to see all the *.iso's.
What's this about? Since they're all the same type of file, I don't understand why some would be viewed as "media files" but others not. If the files were on a Linux-type filesystem (ext3 etc.) I would guess it had something to do with permissions, but I'm not sure how file ownership & permissions apply to a mounted NTFS volume.
Have done a fresh install of 11.04 32bit and after getting everything to work I have run into a 11.04 killer for me. PS3 Media Server don't work It doesn't detect the PS3 correctly and on the PS3 side it just keeps saying "data corrupted" for every video I try to play. It used to work perfectly on 10.04.
I decided to try kubuntu after reading over the webs. I got lastest 10.04 release of kubuntu installed (downloaded yesterday).
So far i dont seem to get any mediaplayer to work correctly with video files (avi's and Video_ts.ifo's). I've tried:
- built in Dragon - Vlc - mplayer and kmplayer/smplayer - xine
The result is as follows
- Dragon plays only Dvd's "vob" files but cannot switch audio or subtitles - vlc wont open ANYTHING at all - mplayer crashes on anything as well - xine will play some videos as dragon but wont play vob files (no "muxer")
At first i installed recommended stuff to play mp3's. When i tried to watch films or dvd's i couldnt do it with Dragon so i tried to install so advertised VLC. I did, and when i open ANY file in VLC, it closes itself. Just closes. Or on rare occasions (when opening some of dvd's files) it just opens a big black screen and reverts to starting small state w/o screen or file opened. I can even sometimes see the first picture from the video blink before it closes. I couldnt get ANY file to play on VLC not even an mp3... I then installed some packages that told they contain codecs to play alot of formats, and package for "encoded dvd's" - nothing.
After that i've seen that now i can play some videos (avi's and stuff) and even DVD's with built in Dragon video player, but dragon cannot understand subtitles or different audio streams. I tried mplayer and Xine with no luck as well.
Now since its not a problem of one player, but i cannot get to play video_ts.ifo files at all and cannot get vlc and mplayer to play anything at all, there must be something i am doing wrong.
I wanted to try out Aqualung, and I like the program, but with one big drawback: the media keys at the top of my keyboard don't work with it. Is there something that needs to be done to enable those keys, or is this a bug with the program or my computer?
I tried so many times to configure vlc on fedora 11 . But all are failed things that tried are listed below: Yum install vlc error-> no package found Downloaded rpm for vlc and try to install but dependency errors Downloaded mplyer and try to compile but ended with errors, compile with various combinations of parameters but errors are still there.
I've read many threads about the Linksys WUSB600n (both versions), and tried the suggested solutions to no avail in 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04. Compiling my own drivers, adding items to the blacklist, and even a clumsy driver transplant from 32-bit 9.10 have all failed. So here's the sitch: I have a Linksys WUSB600n v1 that works perfectly in 9.10 with only the minor modification posted by chili555 in this thread HTML Code: [URL] That solution was: "
I've tried the same in a clean install of 10.04, but no connection is made and a prompt comes up every few minutes asking for the password. I've used the included rt2870 driver in 9.10 without problems. My wireless-N network uses WPA2 personal encryption, which has never given me issues. The usb id of my adapter, per lsusb, is ID 1737:0071
I am running Lucid with Thunderbird 3.1. I can't make the Send To feature (right click on a file in Nautilus) work. It seems to send a file but the file doesn't go to the designated email address. I don't have TB designated as the default email, because I don't know how to do that
