For the life of me, I can not get Banshee to work with an iPod on FC12-x64. Mind you , I can browse over to the iPod's data directories and play music directly from the iPod. Banshee just does not recognize the iPod.
I recently installed Banshee and would like to set it as my default music player. Currently, when I plug in my iPod, Rythmbox auto loads and then Banshee cannot access the device. Is there a way to go about changing this setup so when I plug in the iPod, it's Banshee that loads it and not Rythmbox?
I am trying to connect my 2nd Gen Ipod to Xubuntu and import my music collection onto the Ipod. I am having real problems with this. Rhythm Box does not recognise the Ipod with the plug-in, I have tried Amarok, but each time I tried to open it, it just crashed, tried sending a bug report but that did not want to work. I have also tried Exaile with the Ipod plug-in but when you go to the device manager you can click on the Ipod but nothing happens. I have tried looking at the Exaile forums but this seems to be a problem for others as well. The Ipod mounts ok, now a bit stuck.
I recently got an iPod touch 2nd gen. I plugged it in and it immediately showed up in Rhythmbox. I dragged and dropped music files to the iPod icon listed under devices on the left hand pane. The files ARE on the iPod, I can confirm by finding them on the device in Nautilus. The problem is, they do not show up in the music library on the actual iPod. Did I miss something, or is there a step I must take to get them to show up in the iPod's music library so I can play them?
Bought an Ipod Touch 4th Gen today, and I can't get Ubuntu 10.04 to talk to it in a meaningful way. So far I've tried dling Mediamonkey and running it on Wine - no good. I successfully installed the latest itunes and can run it with Wine, but the ipod doesn't show up on the devices menu on the left. I can see an Ipod touch icon on my desktop and in nautilus, and I can drag files into the ipod via nautilus, but they don't show up on the ipod's music menu. There's an option to open the ipod w/ Rhythmbox, but when I do, it isn't there (in rhythmbox). I'd rather not resort to jailbreaking. I guess I wouldn't mind using virtualbox, but I don't have a copy of XP handy. Mediachest looks like garbage to me, and I don't know how to work it.
I have a first generation iPod Shuffle (yes, I know it's old) with 512 megabytes of space (feel free to laugh). I also have arch linux installed on my computer, with a music folder containing about 30 folders full of music. This totals to about 2 gigabytes of music.
What I want to do is: create a script that moves no more than 512 megabytes (it can be slightly under this amount, but NOT over) of random songs from my music folder (and it's subsequent artist/album folders) to a separate folder. I will then use gtkpod to move those random songs in the new folder to my iPod Shuffle.
At the moment I use Rhythmbox to acces my music and my iPod 5G. I would however like to use Banshee, but in Banshee all my iPod 5G-music is displayed under the video folder, while the music folder is empty. Any idea why?And also I have several albums with different artists on them, which gets spread out on i.e. 10 single albums even though they belong to the same album. This happens - as far as I can tell - after I've accessed the iPod from Rhythmbox (which is part of the reason why I wanna use Banshee).
I've had an awkward problem lately: every music player I use wants to instead of play music from my USB external hard drive, stream music from it. I have no idea why it suddenly started doing that. It may have been an accidental key-combo I pressed, thinking I had another window targeted and didn't bother pressing it again for my Totem music player. So I closed out of Totem in hopes that Rythmbox would work like totem used to. Well, it doesn't. It wants to stream music now.The problem with the streaming music is trivial, but here it is: I have a playlist with a little over 300 songs. I have Totem set to shuffle and repeat my music. Streaming music with it makes it just stop randomly after a few songs, and when I try to pause music and play it later it takes a good 30 seconds before it kicks back in at the beginning of the song.Like I always ask because I don't know enough to give back to the community yet, can anyone help me? Thanks.
I have an ipod classic 160gb, that I sync with my machine at home.
I use Linux at work, and want to just plug my ipod and just listen to the tracks, with all the playlists and such. I don't want to sync nothing, I just want to listen to the tracks as if I was using the ipod itself.
Why? Because this way I can use the usb port.
So, I don't want to manage my ipod in Linux, I just want to listen to the tracks on it in Linux, like it was a local library but it's instead in my ipod.
(I've tried gtkpod, it works to show my files, but I can't play, shuffle, etc. It would be interesting to have a complete audio software to handle everything like it was a local library)
I've been ripping my CDs to digital for about 10-12 years, and for about 8-10 years, all my new purchases of music have been in digital form. My favored method of organizing my stuff has been by using subdirectories code...
It seems that every music program that has the ability to manage your music collection wants to use MP3 tags to do so. I severely do not want that behavior. I would like to be able to automatically create a library based on pathnames.
Winamp cooperates with my directory structure, but Rhythmbox / Songbird / Exaile seem to be hard-coded to just read id3 tags and operate according to that.
I have my music sorted using directories so I don't want a library, tags and what not.What I want:
easily (recursively) add directories to playlist from my music root, not from library songs in playlist grouped by directories they reside in directories in playlist must be collapsible and rearrangable, option to collapse all but currently played folder being a nice bonus buttons/shortcuts for next/prev directory are a must shuffle songs within their directories, shuffle directories within playlist
Let me begin by saying that I'm a "casual user" of my computer (I'm a retiree who uses her 'machine' for email, looking up mostly useless info, & pretending to be a writer). However, migraines from beating my head on the keyboard in frustration over Windows eccentricities led me straight to Linux. Linux blows windows out of the water, IMO.
Except for Media Players. I have tried every one in Ubuntu's software catalog. Rhythmbox is the only one that works, & it doesn't work correctly. I use my computer as my primary music source, & have saved nearly 200 albums/CDs to it. I transferred my collection to a memory stick, then tried to transfer it to Ubuntu. Rhythmbox 'accepted' most but not all albums, but none of the downloaded music, & lists the songs in each album backwards. When I open an album, sometimes Rhythmbox plays them backwards, sometimes (rarely) 'frontwards', but usually, jumps around, plays a few of the numbers, then stops. Occasionally, it goes through the collection, playing one song from each collection.
I was able to transfer the entire collection to 'Listen' media player, but it doesn't actually play anything, & I never even got that far with any other player. I have a two year-old HP Compaq Presario desktop w/ 500GB, (300 to Ubuntu & the rest to The Dreaded Windows for some stuff I can't run on Linux). I began with running Ubuntu 10.04 on 'wubi', then installed it from a CD I burned from the Ubuntu site. Someone suggested I had screwed something up during downloading, so I got 10.04 on a CD (w/ "Ubuntu for Non-Geeks"), but had the same media player problems. Last month I upgraded to 10.10, but still have the same problems.
I have got a Cowon iAudio 9 music player and want to display the album art images of the albums on it. The player does support this feature but only when there is a *.jpg file inside of the album folder or the image is embedded into the music file itself (did not tried that).
At the moment I'm using banshee as music management software and I like it. The album art is downloaded automatically for each album and when the player is connected it is beeing recognized and I can drag & drop albums or single songs.
The only problem is that the album art is not transfered along with the albums. The player does support MTP and MSC usb connections and is mounted as removeable usb drive to the system (Ubuntu 10.10). I would be glad if there's a solution to do that with banshee but other software solutions are welcome too.
I want to sync music into my iPod and and put them in albums and have an artwork for every song. I tried rhythmbox but I don't know how to put the artwork on the songs. I tried Hipo iPod management tool and gtk iPod manager but it doesn't recognize the iPod. I also tried iTunes with wine but it doesn't recognize the iPod either. I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
I'm new to ubuntu and I was a little concerned the jump over would be a little complicated. I was happy to see that almost everything on my external hd worked perfectly and rhythmbox plays all of the music files I have. I attempted to add music to my ipod (8gb iTouch specifically). It seemed that none of the music would come up on the iPod, even though rhythmbox showed that the files were on there. After a little time (and if I did something other than wait, I'm unaware) the files popped up on my iPod. Later in the week, I tried to add more music, with similar problems. I've removed and added the files several times and allowed the iPod to fully sync, but they still won't come up. I don't understand why it would work sometimes and not other times.
I have two machines running ubuntu 10.10, one which acts as a media server to which i connect with the other (laptop) using ssh. All of the music is on the media server and I mount it with samba on the laptop.
I want to be able to manage music in my ipod (a very old one, probably G1 or G2) but I can't seem to make it work...
When I connect it to the laptop it looks ok, and the ipod is visible in Rhythmbox but I can't add music to the ipod, not sure why, maybe because all of my music is on the server and not local? If I try to sync the ipod and my library it says that there's not enough disk space since the library is far bigger than the capacity of my ipod.
When connected to the server, I mount the ipod but the Rhythmbox just don't display it. I checked in the plugins and the ipod support is enabled.
I have a 1st generation jailbroken iTouch running 1.1.4 software. I just installed ifuse and gtkpod on my Debian squeeze/sid system. After fiddling with things, including symlinking /var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control to /var/mobile/Media/iPod_Control and creating the Device/Sysinfo file under it with the firewire ID, gtkpod would recognize the iPod Touch and show me the songs. I deleted some, edited some tracks, and saved the changes to the iPod. I did forget to umount /mnt/itouch the first time, that may have been the problem; but I have umounted it each time thereafter, and gtkpod still seems to think it's successfully updating everything.
However, the Touch blithely asserts, when I hit Music: "No Content. You can download content from iTunes".Is there any hope, short of going back to iTunes and redoing everything under Windows? If it matters, the version of libgpod that was installed with gtkpod was libgpod4. Maybe I should downgrade to libgpod3?Further note: it's 8GB, so I put A623 for the model. And I do believe that is correct for the 1st generation iPod Touch 8GB.
