Ubuntu :: Music File Information Editing Doesn't Save
Apr 5, 2010
I have some japanese music files stored on a flash drive that the titles of which are in japanese originally. While in the flash drive, when I go to Properties -> Audio, the title is written in japanese. It does not allow me to edit the file, no matter what permissions I have on it, therefore I can't change the name to english. So, I tried Rhythmbox instead, and transfered the file there. I could change the name, however there is STILL a huge problem.
I have around 300 japanese music files, all of which have to be renamed into english.
I did all this for all of them in Rhythmbox, and clicked "quit" when I was done. When I came back to transfer the files to my MP3 player like usual, I opened Rhythmbox, and...
ALL OF THE FILES WERE STILL IN JAPANESE! It didn't save any of the work I did on editing them. But, I calmed down and thought "oh, you can save playlists! I am sure that if I save them on one, it will keep the edits!" I did this, and it saved nothing. It took me 2 hours to finish the renaming, just to find out that it can't save information edits at all.
In Document Viewer, I can click on the fields and type in them, but after spending about 2 hours writing descriptions of courses, I saved it and... it closed the document I was working on, and loading the document I saved resulted in empty fields that could no longer be edited at all - clicking on them did nothing - it looked like a blank form, except it was also broken.
Is there any way I can actually fill in this form...
I have a very basic problem. Whenever I click on About Me(System->Preferences), I cannot see any information editing window. However, the mouse pointer does show the system is budy doing something, nothing shows up and then the pointer returns to default as if the system is no longer busy. What can I do to change my personal info?
my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt
I am doing a Linux installation. I installed the system fine and am trying to change the vi /etc/hosts file. I have edited the file but am not sure how to save it. I have --INSERT-- showing at the bottom.
I want to be able to open a file (support for .mp3 and .ogg a must) and add effects, change pitch and tempo, add beats (either default or midi created), mix with other songs (or clips from), be able to change levels of the high/mid/low, alter gain and frequencies ... all that fun stuff.
programs I already have are:
MixXx LMMS (Linux MuliMedia Studio) mhWavedit -and- gAlan
And it doesn't seem that any of those have the features I am looking for. I am running Zorin OS 4 (ubuntu 11.04 based) and Dreamlinux 3.5 (debian- unsure which release) on a fujitsu lifebook 5 series - S6240 (it's kinda old 2005).
this is probably going to seem like quite an odd post, and something that most of you probably won't even be aware of, but it is something that affects me a lot, maybe cos im slightly ocd about how things are organised on my computer, but here goes:
when adding music to a music player, say banshee- which is my favourite ubuntu one, many of the tracks information are often 'auto corrected', im not sure how this is done, whether there is information stored on the file, or whether the player accesses a database on the internet, but basically this is not what i want, i want to be able to upload the files and change them from the state that they are when i upload them. can anyone else relate to this problem? or know of a solution..
the thing is, it is only about 20% of the files that are changed after uploading and i have no idea what the reason is for it, and its not restricted to banshee, it happens with just about all media players
I'm trying to set up my router, with tomato firmware, to save the bandwidth usage information. One of the 'save history' choices is "CIFS" ... I'm lost as to how to create this save area..anyone able to give me a link to a 'how to' ...or if you've done it, perhaps a step by step?
I'm having problems with Kstars and would like to know the proper place to post questions or if there is a forum just for the Kstars program. I can't find much info on the net. If I remember right it worked in Ubuntu 8 but I've upgraded to the latest and some options in Kstars are not working now. In a nutshell, some of the problems are:
1: Help not working. I get....Could not Launch the KDE help center: Could not find service 'khelpcenter' 2: In telescope wizard, there is no list of telescopes. 3: I cant save my telescope information under properties.
As I'm just learning this stuff, it could be a bug but not sure, so please point me in the right direction for help. I'm running dual boot on a HP laptop. Windows XP and Ubuntu. I have reformatted the drive and installed everything new for a clean slate.
I would want to record/edit/save music from the microphone (convert a tape to CD). But. I start audacity, leave everything at default, record the music, and play back. It plays agonisingly slow. I can change the sample rate manually such that it sounds good, but this is just a guess (I could for example measure the recording time, and adjust the sample rate after that, such that the displayed time on the timeline fits this time). Why the hell do I need to do this? Why is the recording sample rate = playbe sample rate not producing correct output?
Ok so I am a total newbie at Ubuntu Linux and I'm having problems I don't know how to solve.
1.) Up until yesterday this wasn't a problem, but after a power outage while I was connected I am now unable to connect to the internet anymore as it says "Networking is disabled", how do i enable the "networking"?
2.) Another problem I am having is that I am not able to dim the screen in order to save power among other uses, I've looked around but haven't been able to find a solution, I am running ubuntu on a Gateway M-Series Laptop.
3.) Finally, since installing linux I have been unable to listen to music or any other sounds through headphones or speakers, when i connect something into the audio output, the outer speakers do shut off but no sound is emitted through the speakers/headphones, and yes i have tried multiple ones to make sure it wasn't the headphones or speakers.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome as my desktop enviroment. I used Wubi to install from my laptop's default OS, Vista. I keep most of my media on the Windows partition, mostly for ease of use - such as streaming a movie through my xbox etc I would like to know if there is a way to edit the Gnome 'places' menu to have Music, Pictures etc direct to my /host/users equivalent.
I've tried iptables save, iptables-save and iptables save active.
"iptables save" and "iptables save active" give me an invalid argument error. "iptables-save" isn't a valid command. "iptables --help" gives me a list of valid switches, none of which have to do with saving.
I have a dual-boot windows and Suse linux 11.1 setup. I can save and restore a linux image. Trying to save an image of Windows results in Partimage freezing at the "NTFS Information" window before the "save partition to image file." I have two SystemRescue CDs of versions 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 I have two computers one with Windows 2000 and one with Windows XP I have defragmented the partitions several times over. Users are told that use with "NTFS is experimantal". Several up-beat webpage tutorials also mention this but go on to say how marvellous it works for them. Naturally, such sites do not mention problems. This is the province of the forums. I have found nothing that relates to my problem though. Hence my post appealing for any guidance on offer.
Powersaving on my desktop is way to agressive, it behaves like a notebook. The monitor switches off after just 4 minutes.Disabling PowerDevill makes no difference. Editing energy profile settings doesn't help either.Is there another way to force these settings?
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 and from my id which has administrator rights, I am unable to save any files as well as unable to change the location in firefox. The firefox version is also in the snapshot as well as the options window. Is it that my profile has been corrupted or is there some bug in firefox.
For a long time, I haven't heard a startup sound from Ubuntu. I do hear the short staccato drum beat when the log in screen is displayed. However, the other longer startup music doesn't play. Not a very serious flaw but since I upgraded to ubuntu 10.04, I thought I'd like to have everything in perfect working order.
since ive installed 10.4 im quite taken by rythmbox which i didnt really discover before somehow but i have a problem with the store-plugin whenever i restart rythmbox it seems to be working fine, then i try to buy a song and then it says "connecting..." but then nothing happens, meaning it doesnt connect.i made an account but i dont find a problem-log
i've configured my laptop so i can use my domain account (active directory win 2003 DC) to logon to my machine. Now i'd like to browse and mount shares etc using my logon information. Now when i connect to a share with nautilus it tells me 'guest' can't log in and i need to re-enter my user info. This is a real pain since our passwords change often. Is there some way i can use PAM to authenticate? I've searched everywhere, but you only find info about the other way round (win->linux).
In the indicator-applet-complete, I want the date and day to be displayed with the time. I open the Time & Date Settings, tick off the appropriate boxes, and nothing changes. The same is true for the Bluetooth icon. I can't remove the bluetooth icon from the indicator applet.It seems like a general problem with the indicator applet in that it doesn't save my settings.
