Ubuntu Multimedia :: Increase In File Size Of Ripped CD Tracks To MP3 Between Previous Releases Of Karmic?
Mar 15, 2010
Has anyone else noticed an increase in file size of ripped CD tracks to MP3 between previous releases of Ubuntu and Karmic? Specifically using the same Gstreamer pipeline settings the file size in Karmic is now considerably larger than in previous releases like Jaunty or Intrepid. Is there a fix for this bug. Seems like Sound Juicer/Rhythmbox have some significant bugs in Karmic!
i have this directory with multiple images 'pics' and the size is 20mb, and i want to make a .zip or .rar package of this directory but with an increased size so the .zip/.rar file will be 100mb, and then when you extract it the file size is the original 20mb
I downloaded ubuntu 10.04 and install it from windows vista (32 Bit) and gave it initial memory 5 GB, but after I started using it I always got a message that I have a very low memory left (16 MB only !!!) and I cannot install any updates or new applications , so is there any way I can expand the File system files without reinstall the OS again????
i have to upload a signature image(in jpeg format) to fill a recruitment form which says file-size must be of between 10-20 kb......i have scanned image which is of 9.5 kb.....tried to edit in shotwell photo manager....tried some random things in Adjust and crop menu but my little changes didn't work, it always shortened the file size......as i don't know anything about Image editing can someone tell me how can i increase the file size (>=10kb) i also tried gnome-screenshot to take the screenshot of the image, but it also saved the new image smaller than 10kb....
i have some issues running twinview through my laptop and an additional monitor. i currently have the nvidia settings such that the monitor is the primary screen. however, whenever i click full screen in videos or another application, it maximizes in my laptop screen. also - when i maximize videos videos, the screen fills up, but the actual video size doesn't tend to increase (it doesn't stretch to fit). is this an adobe problem? ubuntu 10.04, nvidia driver v195, dell latitude d630 laptop.
How do I install a specific one? Or better yet, revert back to an earlier release.
I have two systems running. 2.6.31-22-generic #60-Ubuntu aphrodite release 2.6.31-22-generic #63-Ubuntu amaterasu release
I googled the #60 and #63 and it listed release names highlighted above, is this correct?
If it is, how can I install the aphrodite release?
I have one system working great (#60), while the other exhibits problems playing back 1080p video files (#63). The only HW difference that could affect the dropping frames is the 8200/8300 Nvidia chipsets (with the 8200 working perfectly) and then of course the Karmic releases. I have re-installed the system and files twice and even upgraded new releases of Nvidia drivers (195 > 256) with no success.
My next step is to try and install the same exact release of Karmic if indeed there is a difference between #60 and #63.
My next step might be to use clonezilla and clone the OS (Root) and try that. But then the chipsets for sound are different as well as the ehternet chipset. But that shouldn't impair the video.
Wubi doesn't let me set the swap file size, so on installation it only creates a swap file of a few hundred megabytes. Because of this, i cannot hibernate my netbook (eeePC 1005HA), which has 2 GB of RAM.
Creating a 2 GB swap file alongside of the original one using the tutorial here did work, but hibernate doesn't seem to work with it. For this reason i thought increasing the original swap's size instead of creating more would be a way to solve my problem.
I use abcde to rip and encode all my music. It works great especially the option of ripping an entire cd to one flac or mp3 file, this was great for Sleep's Jerusalem. Anyway I have a cd by the Melvins (the Maggot) which they famously split each track into two tracks midway through the song. I would like to know if there is a way to rip them into "whole" tracks?
My question would be this: is it possible to open different audio file tracks into the same piano roll, or even open multiple piano roll instances at the same time? If the answer is "no", then does anyone know a good LADSPA sampler plugin? Basically, I need to be able to load multiple samples into the same instrument and have them set to a range on the keyboard, similar to what the advanced sampler in Reason does.
Having multiple samples in the beat editor is not the same, as I need to control the note off (without re-loading the sample and just changing the end time, that is too cumbersome). If any of this seems weird I should specify that I am making breakcore music where drum beat samples are highly manipulated and a piano roll for each sample is just going to be too annoying to program.
I ripped 2 music CDs for a total of 78 minutes, but K3b won't burn them to a blank CD-R. It says the free space in temporary folder is 615.5 MB, but the size of project is 691.5 MB. I don't know why the tmp directory is that small when I have 615 GB free on my filesystem. When I start the burn, it simply says copying, but nothing shows up in the progress bars. I am able to burn direct copies of CDs, however. After a couple of tries and a couple of successful burns of entire CDs, I tried again, and it crashed.
When I downloaded the ISO file thru DAP it showed up as 699.44MB but when I completed the download onto my HDD (XP SP3 & NTFS) it shows up as 716,230KB (see below) with a result when I try to burn on to a CD. I get an error that the file is too large. Whats happening, is there a solution to this?
I have 4 primary partitions on my hard drive. One of these partitions has been divided into 3 logical partitions with some free space left over. The order is this: "swap", "/", "/home", and about 80GB of unallocated space. I want to incorporate that unallocated space into the home partition. I tried this by booting a live CD and starting GParted but it didn't give me the option to increase the size of my home partition or the primary partition as a whole. The only thing it would let me do is decrease the size of my home partition.
Finally i have installed ubuntu 10.10 on my home PC. Its working so so good i cant really imagine :-). At the time of partition due to my immaturity, i selected the size of '/' to be 10 Gb. Now i want to increase it without reinstalling ubuntu. Is there any safe way of doing it ? i did some research and came to know that Gparted might be of some help, but i will really be grateful if any of you can guide me.
the use of livecd for example, can i use liveusb instead ? i was thinking of making liveusb of centos 5.5.
I have installed ubuntu in my 500GB passport drive. The ubuntu partition size is 120GB. I want to increase the root partition size because i ran out of disk space for "/" I have installed Gparted and accidentally created new partition table. Then all my disk space turned into unallocated space. So, i immateriality rebooted my system. Then, I am not able to boot into the drive. Moreover it is not detecting in windows too. How to undone that "MISTAKE" ??
I copied 10.4 from a 20gig hd. onto an 80 gig hd with Clonezilla and now I can't get Gparted to expand the partition to include the 50 gig that is unallocated. Obviously I cloned the drive incorrectly.
I am very much new user of ubuntu and hardly know anything about linux. What is swap memory? I have dual boot system with windows7 and ubuntu 9.04. My hard disk size is 320GB and RAM is 4GB. Currently swap memory size is 4.3GB. Can I increase swap size? Will it have any advantage? How to do that?
I got back to my laptop after dinner and found a blank screen with one line of text saying something about running out of swap space - I tried all kinds of key combinations but nothing worked to bring the desktop back - eventually I pressed and held the power button to shut it down - I suppose this is Ubuntu's version of the "blue screen of death"?I went to System - Disk Utility to make a 2GB free space right after the swap space. Then I tried to make that 2GB free space a swap space partition but it came back with an error
I have a dual boot machine ( win 7 & Ubuntu 10.04 ) which is reporting insufficient space on the Linux partition. I boot up into gparted and reduce the size of the the preceding partition but when I try to increase the size of the following ( linux ) partition, it won't allow it. Attached is a screenshot of the gparted info screen.
I am trying to install Ubuntu via Wubi on a 120GB hard drive but the max installation size is only 30GB. I can NOT use a CD/DVD or USB to boot because I get an error 'BOOTMGR is missing press CTRL + ALT + Delete to restart' I'm currently on Windows 7 and have looked into fixing that error. I have tried using a Windows 7 recovery disc and followed some guides but I can't seem to fix it. So I am left with the only option of installing Ubuntu via Wubi but I want to use the entire hard drive, and not just 30GB. So what I'm asking is if there is a way to increase the size.
I have booted up in a Gparted system disk. I'm trying to use Gparted to resize my current linux partition. It sits on a one HDD with another Windows partition.I have delete the windows partition (626GB) and now want to resize my linux partition to use all this unallocated space. When trying to resize the linux partition (293GB) I am not able to do so. No space is shown to be available to use. I can only make the partition smaller. Can anyone think of why I won't be able to increase my linux partition to use this now unallocated space?
I have a server setup running VirtualBox and several Windows guests. I'm running the box headless and start the windows machines using
sudo vboxheadless -s "WinXP Pro SP3"&
via SSH session from my MacBookPro in terminal. I then connect to the Virtual Machines running MS Remote Desktop from the MacBookPro. All of this works perfectly except that I've run out of space on my partition for Virtual Machines and need to create a few more. I have plenty of room on the HDD but when first installing Ubuntu Server I only partitioned and formated about 1/4 of the drive. Is it possible to run a command in my SSH session at the command line to partition the unused portion of the HDD, format it, and expand my current partition into that space? Or, do I have to use something like gpartedlive, boot from the CD and do the partitioning?
