I placed the DVD in the player's window. Movie Player was installed earlier. When I am trying to play the DVD, it is shown as under. "An error occurred. Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file."
There is an option to play ..... video in totem. But i am unable to play any video. Error shows, "Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file.". I searched google, few suggestions are patches for ......py file, but there is no file named ......py in /usr/lib/totem/plugins/...../ folder.
I'm trying to figure out what in the world is going on with my sound in OpenSuSE. I put in a brand new Audigy chipset soundcard and finally got some sound to come out of the speakers. I used the guide here: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE. to fix the permissions on my sound and am able to get sound-test to play sounds as well as connect to the sound device in my vmware and play sounds. That being said, I have terrible sound quality coming out. There is a lot of static sound like white noise and the volume of the actual sound played is very low compared to the noise. The sounds also distort somewhat.
I have tried the pulse audio change in the tutorial above also and have been searching around google. The only problem that I saw similar was a person who fixed the problem by updating KDE. I don't have KDE, I'm using Afterstep.
After installing an external sound card, Im having some weird issues. The cards chipset is fully supported by suse, (CM8738) so I dont think thats the problem. Besides, I'm getting sound, but not in some applications. The system's sounds work just fine (login, logout themes) amarok plays without any problems, kaffeine, mplayer they all work flawlessly, in fact I can see the difference in quality between the onboard sound and my new card. However, no web browser is able to play any sound at all, firefox, opera or chrome, nothing,zip. Plus, vlc cant reproduce sound either, nor can smplayer.
I've tried switching channels on and off(muting)in kmixer and in alsamixer, on the console, with no results. I disabled the onboard audio on the bios before installing the new card, however my ati video card has integrated sound, which I cant disable.... I used to get this exact same problem randomly with the onboard sound, but I just had to go to kmixer and turn up the "pcm" channel volume, which was set to 0, and I had sound again on my browser. However this card's pcm channel is at max and turning it up or down affects the whole systems volume, not just the browser's. Is it better to just reinstall the sound system, if so how could I do that.
so I have vlc 1.0.4 and when I try to play .flv files they won't load and when I try to play .mp4 files they play but after 1 or 2 vidoes there is no sound at all. I can get sound form other applications such as amsn and ice weasel when it happens
I tried creating a virtual server in apache and it got created successfully. (I also added a zone in dns for that domain successfully) However, when I try opening that domain in my browser, I see a popup window which asks me what to do with "default" which is a php file type.
I dont see the index.php which should actually open. What do I do to make the php files display correctly?
I installed Fedora 12 recently. The Open multimedia installed by default does not play DVDs. It stops with the error " Totem cannot play this type of media (DVD) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from the disc. "
I just upgraded from the last LTS version to 10.04 Lucid Linux and Flash just totally sucks. I keep trying to watch videos at [URL] and the videos play for about 1 minutes then it locks up and gives me this error: "Unable to play the video specified:
rtmp:1935//streaming.ted.com/talks/dynamic/MichaelPollan_2007-high"I have followed all of suggestions in the "Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto" by ubuntu-freak and I'm still having major problems with Flash videos.
I have Ubuntu 9.04 and just installed Sound Converter. I am trying to convert a bunch of .ogg files to mp3 to play on my iPod and it's not working so well. In the Sound Converter options I have is set to convert to high quality mp3. I choose the folder that the files are in and after a moment (slow laptop) Sound Converter populates, I hit 'convert' and it shows that the conversion completes in two seconds. All that it did was create the new folder structure of artist/album but there is nothing in there. Not sure what I am missing. I used Sound Converter before and it worked fine.
I have Ubuntu 10.4 on 2 different machines. Both machines are having the same problem. When I put a DVD in, nothing happens. When I double click the drive icon under PLACES, nothing happens. Try to open with Totem, an error message comes up and says that an error has occurred and that I might not have permission to open it. However, when I try to check the permissions, it tells me that it cannot determine the permissions. What am I missing or forgetting to do?
I've been tasked with transferring a Python web server from a Debian box to a Fedora server for work. (I think) I've been able to transfer all required files but I'm unable to run the web server because whenever I make the HTTPServer call in the python file I get an error "Cannot assign Requested Address".
I've basically traced the issue back to the server being unable to open a socket on the requested port (8085 in this case). I've checked netstat and there are no processes running on that port (or any other one I've tried for that matter) so wondering if there's a system configuration I need to do to allow programs to bind to sockets. Is there a deny configuration set up somewhere I need to modify? Does this even make sense?
sound card is working well inside SuSE and everything is ok there. But when I install Windows 7 or XP inside Xen Virtualization software, I can't use sound card and Windows is unable to find any sound hardware.
I am not really new to ubuntu since I had it for time now I still don't know a lot about it since I was not really interested in exploring it and probably won't understand some of the terms used so go easy on me. Now, since I have upgraded to ubuntu 10.10 (maverick) (maybe even earlier since I haven't been using it much) I have not been able to open Software Center.
Trying to openit through terminal gave me the following result: Code: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/software-center", line 90, in <module> app = SoftwareCenterApp(datadir, xapian_base_path, options, args) File "/usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/app.py", line 145, in __init__ self.history = get_apt_history() ..... raise ValueError, 'unknown locale: %s' % localename ValueError: unknown locale: sr_RS
When trying to copy my personal address to CouchDB I get this error: Unable to open address book. This address book cannot be opened. This either means that an incorrect URI was entered, or this server is unreachable. Detailed error message: Invalid source
I have been trying (since 10.04!) to sync my Evolution contacts. UbuntuOne seems to be the most promising way of doing that automatically, however, I completely fail at accomplishing this seemingly simple task. I have NEVER been able to successfully back up my address book to UbuntuOne. Note: all other sync works fine. It's just Evolution that is seemingly smarter than I am. Thing I have done to solve the issue:
- Upgraded from 10.04 to 11.04 - All three steps from this article: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOne/FA...olutionSyncing - Cuss and swear and roll my eyes, mutter a few unrepeatable curse words about Canonical and their mothers.
I had a memory stick problem over the weekend, and after correcting the problem, I decided to up grade from Linux Mint 9 to Linux Mint 10. All video and sound functions worked properly prior to changing to Linux Mint 10. Now I can not get any sound out of the speakers, from a CD or a digital file, and a video goes at super fast speed with no sound. I am new the Linux world but learning fast. Data CD's work correctly both in reading and burning new.
Well after messing with compiz Opacity I managed to make all panels and windows transparent. Only thing I see is desktop background and icons. Tried ctrl+although+f1 and running gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz Then a reboot. Same issue. Next ran metacity --replace I get: Windows manager error: Unable to open X display
i installed adobe flash player (install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz)on linux open suse 11.1. But it doesn't play vedio etc on you tube,it says that this is old version of flash player. I reinstalled it ,even then it says old version of flash player.
I used to be able to use the NFL game center on nfl.com to watch the play-by-play when I was using Fedora 10.Now that I am on Fedora 12 it no longer works. I am able to click into a game and see all the info but the play-by-play drive chart no longer displays anything. Does anyone out there know how to get this working?
After finally getting libptp2 to compile I find that ptpcam does not work. This has worked perfectly fine before with the same camera using Slackware 12.0, I am now using Slackware 13.1 and ptpcam will simply not work. The error is as follows:
x86_1# ptpcam -l Listing devices... bus/dev vendorID/prodID device model ERROR: Could not open session! Try to reset the camera.
I have tried to reset with "ptpcam -r", I have also tried to disconnect and reconnect the camera to the USB system, I have tried to reboot the computer, I have tried to use different versions of libptp2 -- all to no avail. The strace shows the issue is apparently a failed ioctl(), although I have no idea why it fails:
I have verified that the camera is working in Windows 7 on the same physical computer and I can see the camera from lsusb and dmesg output when I connect it to the USB system. This system is Slackware 13.1, Linux x86_1 188.8.131.52-smp #2 SMP Wed May 12 22:47:36 CDT 2010 i686 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux.
Sound can play but music can't in the game "second life" and I'm using it on ubuntu. I don't know how to fix the problem or where to begin and I had asked a tech in that game and they said it might have to do with the firewall, but wouldn't help me out because I wasn't premium. The first sentence is the problem.
I'm trying to update the drivers to NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.21.run (GeForce GT 220) but ran into several problems. I'm currently running Ubuntu 10.04. when running sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.21.run /var/log/nvidia-installer.log gives the following errors:
-> Uninstallation of existing driver: NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 (260.19.21) is complete. -> Searching for conflicting X files: ERROR: Unable to open '/usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglx.so' for reading (No such file or directory)
I've been using cyrus and sendmail together for a very very long time now. Just recently I upgraded to fedora 13 and now my virtual users can not send email from the /etc/sasldb2 passwords. I get in the /var/log/messages sendmail: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: Unknown error: Its weird that they can still log in and get email from imapd.conf
I even tried re-creating sasldb2 and sasldblistusers2 shows my two users 'one' that is also a local user account and the saslauthd authenticates when sending emails, but the virtual user 'two' can't send just only can log in to receive. /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd is set up as mech=pam. but I don't see how that would be relevant to this issue.
I've been using Linux for about a week, now, and yesterday I finally got my audio to work. Before shutting-down yesterday, I installed some more audio-plugins. When I started-up my computer today, there were errors in the console-text that appears while the Debian Linux OS is loading. When I got to the desktop, I tried to play music, but no sound came-out. So, I tried to uninstall the plugins I installed yesterday and restarted. I got similar errors in the console-text as earlier. When my desktop loaded, I still had no sound. I had several problems with the entire sound architecture of the computer. I made some more changes in the application-download-manager-thingy and restarted and I no longer got the errors at boot-time.
Unfortunately, I still have absolutely no sound, and it appears as if ALSA is effectively dead. My soundcards are Rocketfish (PCI) and Realtek HD Audio (Integrated). I got Realtek to work yesterday with OSS.
Another problem is that WINE doesn't work, with the exception of WINE's default programs. I've been trying to get this thing to work for at least four days now, and I've made absolutely no progress...
Also, after fighting with it for a few days, I finally managed to get the internet to work, but Linux still thinks that I'm offline. It's really weird. This one's not so much of a problem as it is annoying. In addition, if I click-on the network-manager-thingy, it says that none of my connections have ever been used. Odd.
