Ubuntu Multimedia :: MP3 Devices And Software \ Change The Mix Of Albums On My Device?

Jul 20, 2010

I've been playing with Ubuntu for a few years, and it runs great on said notebook, so I' m starting to ween myself from Windows.Biggest consideration for switch is music. I currently have an iPod touch 16. Been using itunes for a long time.I'm not married to the device or the software, and will rebuild my music library if needed (it's a pig of a mess anyway).I'm curious which mp3 device you are using and what linux software you are using it with for great results. I want a high end player iwth 16+ gig, and a music manager to keep a 10000+ file library organized. I frequently want to change the mix of albums on my device. I'm fine with buying music elsewhere from Apple. Prefer it actually - Amazon is a good choice.Should I keep hte iPod? Trade it for a Zune or something else? Sound quality is very important to me. As is wireless access/browsing, storage space, battery life, etc

Debian Hardware :: Multiple Sound Devices - How To Change The Default Device

Mar 19, 2011

I recently installed a new sound card, and I need to find out how to change the default device. Currently, I'm dual-booting Windows, and I had re-enabled the on-board audio in the PC's bios. After doing that, Debian started detecting that on-board as the default sound device. Is there a way to set my sound card to be used instead? I found out that the 'alsaconf' utility has been phased out. I"m currently running Debian testing, for amd64.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: MP3 Tag Editor - Can't Que Albums Up

Nov 22, 2010

What I am trying to do: I have a lot of 2 or 3 CD compilation sets. I like to re do the track numbers to 101/102/103/104 etc for CD1, 201/202/203 etc for CD2, 301/302/303/etc for CD3. I then give them all the same album name. This then means I can listen to all 3 CDs on a journey non stop with out having to take my MP3 player out my coat to change it. Otherwise my MP3 player sees each CD as a different album and I can't que albums up on it - or if I just rename the album to the same on all 3 in the tags it plays track 1 from cd 1, then track 1 from cd 2, and so on. In MP3tag I would just select the tracks, go to the auto numbering wizard, and tell it to start at 101 (or 201 or 301 depending on the CD number).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBox Not Displaying Albums Correctly From Fuppes

Jan 3, 2010

I've been through the forums, and can't seem to find the answers. Thanks to EVERYONE who has posted fuppes related advice though, you've filled my last 3 days with so much fun! I'm a complete newbie with linux. I had a half hearted fiddle about 6 years ago, but nothing since. But I've decided I want rid of the horror that is Windows, and stumbled upon Ubuntu. Installled it last week. First priority, videos and music to the XBox (can't lose Microsoft!). I'm using Ubuntu 9.10.

So, after much, much, much reinstalling and playing with config files, I now have Fuppes streaming to my XBox. I can stream both audio and video, and I'm even happy with the folder structure in the Video section too! (Eventually! ).

1) When rebuilding the database, I get:


TagLib: MPEG::Header::parse() -- Invalid sample rate.
TagLib: MPEG::Header::parse() -- Invalid sample rate.
TagLib: MPEG::Properties::read() -- Page headers were invalid.
Segmentation fault

The line before is repeated lots and lots of times before it gives up. However, it still seems to have created the database, because all I then have to do is start Fuppes up and rebuild the folder structure and it works.

2) I spent ages trawling through the forums to get this far, and I did get music sorted by artist, album, etc. However, when sorted by album, each album shows lots of times. Is there a way to stop this? I only want each album to show once. Seems to mainly affect compilation albums with multiple artists.

For anyone who hasn't got as far as me, persist! You'll get there eventually. I'll attach my fuppes.cfg and vfolder.cfg. I am using version 0.660, and used a mixture of advice from all the tutorials to get here. Use this guide:[URL] but later on in that guide in someone's reply, there's a link to the new version.

I also had to install some additional packages (this was guess work...using Synaptic Package Manager), to ensure that during the ./configure, the Taglib and mpeg4ip/mp4v2 are both enabled, otherwise you have no hope of your XBox sorting your music. if you edit your config files in the fuppes directory, open a terminal and run the following to put them in the place fuppes actually looks for them!:


sudo cp fuppes/fuppes.cfg .fuppes
sudo cp fuppes/vfolder.cfg .fuppes

Ubuntu Multimedia :: If It Detects The Same Name For The Song, Even Though They Are On Different Albums, It Says That Have To Either Replace The File?

Apr 1, 2010

Normally in my music collection, I have some songs that are the same song, just in a different album. When transferring files onto my MP3 player, if it detects the same name for the song, even though they are on different albums, it says that I have to either replace the file, retry, or cancel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Won't Play First Track Of Several .mp3 Albums / Sort It?

Aug 26, 2010

I've been experiencing an odd issue since I upgraded my main desktop to Lucid - namely, that the first track on several albums doesn't appear in the Rhythmbox library. The rest of the album will show up and play just fine. I installed Exaile to see if it was just a Rhythmbox bug, and the tracks appear in the library, but will not play (it just skips through the whole track, as it would if the MP3 codec isn't installed or configured correctly). Did a clean install of Lucid yesterday, which was also of no help.

The files are all .mp3, non-VBR encoding (320kbps, IIRC...not that it should really matter). They are stored in an NTFS partition I use to share data between Windows XP and my Linux installs.

Funny thing is, the tracks show up and play just fine in XP and on OpenSuse 11.3 (KDE version). It also works fine on my laptop, which is also dual-booting XP and Lucid, with the tunes stored on the Windows partition.

Debian Multimedia :: Change The Default ALSA Device?

Aug 24, 2010

I recently bought a logitech headset which is working very nice, the thing is that I cannot make it my default device when I plug it in. I edited /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf to make snd-usb-audio the default card but it only works when the computer is turned on with the headset plugged in. A workaround is to plug it and then "alsa force-reload" but I find it very ugly plus it kills all apps using audio and leaves the volume indicator unstable.

General :: USB Devices Stop Responding When A New Device Is Inserted?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm running archlinux & just recently started having a problem where ALL USB devices will stop responding for a second when a new USB device is plugged in. dmesg doesn't provide any hints.For example, I've got my music on an external HD & it will stop playing for like ~30 seconds if plug in my camera or gamepad...This issue only seemed to start after my home partition was erased & re-created, though I don't see how these two issues could be related.I've been running a custom kernel (2.6.35-rc6) for the past few months, and that hadn't changed to spur this issue. Thinking it may have been something weird with the kernel, I even switched over 2.6.36-rc6-mainline, yet this did not remediate the issue.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get Device IDs From Drive Devices For Fstab Scripting?

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to write a script to modify /etc/fstab that will add entries for a number of partitions on different disks.

The only thing that I do not know how to do is to obtain a unique id such as the ones in /dev/disk/by-id/ to address by from a given partition (ie /dev/sdb1). In my fstab I noticed that in installation the system added fstab entries that are unique (in /dev/disk/by-id/)

I could simply do /dev/sdb1 and so on, but I would prefer a unique identifier so that each mount point is tied to a partition on a specific and unique physical drive.

i need this to be script-able if possible, if not I would still like to know.

Programming :: Implement A Device That Is In Fact A Program That Reads From Other Devices?

you have to read from many devices separate devices and make it look like a single one. It sounds very much like a device driver to me, perhaps... but getting my hands dirty with kernel code sounds like a daunting task for me that I've never done it...

Hardware :: Palm Device Listed In /proc/bus/usb/devices - But Not In Lsusb Output

Sep 5, 2009

When I connect my Treo 650 with a USB cable it works sometimes and not others. A little investigation showed
that it always works when I see the Palm device listed in the output of lsusb. While trying to diagnose why it appears sometimes and not others, I discovered that it sometimes appears in /proc/bus/usb/devices and not
in lsusb. I didn't think that was possible!

I've tried running kudzu (the Red Hat hardware discovery tool) and killing and restarting udevd.

Ubuntu :: Change Default Mount Options For Removalbe (vfat) Devices?

Mar 4, 2010

I want to change the default mount options for removable devices, especially vfat devices, to have shortname=lower instead of the default shortname=mixed mount option. I googled around, and found references to /system/storage/default_options/vfat/mount_options gnome configuration option, but I don't seem to have this option set, actually, I don't seem to have a /system/storage tree in gconf-editor at all. searching in gconf-editor doesn't really yield any results.

Due to the fact that with pulseaudio it is impossible to change the microphone/speaker/ring devices in skype, I had to remove pulseaudio.

After that I can choose a device in skype, but the mixer does not work anymore. There is a way to have a working mixer without pulseaudio package or a way to choose audio devices in skype with pulseaudio installed?!

Ubuntu Installation :: Toshiba Portege M750 - Cant Find Tablet Control Features To Change Input Devices

Except, i cant find tablet control features in Ubuntu, to change input devices (the touchscreen is awful, but I cant turn off the option to use finger as an input device. Also, when i boot to windows 7, the mouse track pad/left and right click doesn't work (they work in Ubuntu)? The keyboard does, and so does my stylus (which I have to use as a substitute)

Software :: Mediatomb Won't Display ITunes Albums?

Dec 28, 2009

I've installed mediatomb (latest version) on Gentoo Linux and am streaming my music to a Denon wifi dock. Works a treat except that when I put iTunes .m4a files into the database they are all inserted into an "/unknown" folder without the album name being displayed. If I change the properties of the "unknown" folder and change the name, then all future additions to the library go into that folder.I can work around this by exporting the files as .mp3 but that seems to be a rather cumbersome way of doing it. Ideally I'd like to be able to just put my iTunes library on a network share that is used for the MediaTomb database.

Software :: No Web Albums Access In Picasa / Resolve This?

May 15, 2011

I am running Fedora 14 and I installed Picasa from the rpm provided on Google's website. Of course, there was an error when I launched it. This was due to the wine-preloader binary that is provided by Picasa being too old. I replaced it with my brand new one and Picasa started running. The problem is that I cannot log into Web Albums because it tells me that Picasa cannot reach the server or whatever. Error message:

Login failed

Please check that you are connected to the internet, and that your internet connection is working properly.
If this problem persists and you contact support, please provide the following error code:

HttpOpenRequest failed (121570 -

Is there a wine internet module that exists, and if so, can I replace it with the one provided by Picasa, wherever it is ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Devices?

Jan 6, 2011

I just attempted to purge and reinstall ALSA (and all of it's related packages/utils) after disabling the on-board sound in an effort to use only an M-Audio Delta 1010 as the sole sound device. I've also tried to reinstall Envy24, as well as drivers for the ICE1712 chip... Now,I have no sound devices. alsamixer tells me there is such file or directory. When I go to /proc there isn't even an asoundrc file there.

I don't know what to do. I've spent the last 4 hours looking for a fix, and trying all sorts of things, even the comprehensive sound troubleshooting guide on this forum. Nothing. I got absolutely nothing. Everything goes exactly as the guide states, except after rebooting, and trying aplay -l and alsamixer, it says there's nothing installed?I have to have a sound, this machine is a DAW .End result I'm looking for is to use the Delta 1010 as the ONLY sound device.
