Software :: Amarok Editing Single File Tags?

Jun 17, 2010

I just began using amarok as a media player and I have a bunch of untagged files which show up in the local collection as Untitled -> Untitled, but since there are multiple files I can't see what they are, and I can't play them. If I go to edit it, it edits all the untitled files to whatever I set it to, because there's a bunch of untitled files. Is there a way for me to add tags to them in amarok one at a time?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Some Tags Are Not Shown In Amarok

Feb 3, 2010

For example, an mp3 file has all the tags filled - track number, year, genre, etc. But when in Amarok, some tags are not shown to me.Look at the attached screenshot, please. You see, when I look into track properties I can see that it HAS got a track number and a year. But it is not shown in playlist.

OpenSUSE :: Amarok 2.4 Id3v2.x Tags - Many Songs Missing From Collection

Jan 1, 2011

I am running KDE from the unstable repos and am having an issue with the Amarok included... output of rpm query on amarok


When I import my music folder into my amarok library I come up ~3000 songs short. When I load the same music folder into songbird 1.4 I am able to see the full library.

There appears to be no rhyme or reason to which songs' ID3 tags are not being read properly by Amarok and therefore are not appearing in my collection. I have tried removing my collection and rescanning, removing and re-installing amarok.. removing all amarok related folders from my .kde folders and reinstalling... yet I am still unable to get my full collection read by Amarok..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Amarok Wont Update Tags For Files In Collection

Feb 9, 2010

I have most of my music on my hard drive in one big "Music" folder, and in Amarok this is seen as the collection. Everything is imported, works fine.

Until i change the ID3 tags of a file/album. Amarok refuses to load the new tags, and keeps displaying the old tags.

I have over 200 GB of music in that folder, some of it is badly tagged. When i realize that, i retag the files with Musicbrainz. And unless i scan the entire collection again, the new tags wont be loaded. Needless to say i can't listen to the respective album/file for hours, as the rescanning of that whole folder takes at least one hour.

Fedora Security :: Reset The Root Password By Booting Into Single Usermode By Editing Grub

Apr 17, 2009

Being able to reset the root password by booting into single usermode by editing grub. This is a MAJOR flaw. I know it makes no real difference against internet bourne attacks, but even so I must say I found it shocking. The only way I've found to stop this is to encrypt the entire HDD, so noone could get into single user mode without first knowing the encryption key/password.

Ubuntu :: Amarok Upgrade - Export Lyrics From Amarok 1.4 And Import Them In Amarok 2?

May 17, 2010

For the last few releases, I've remained with Amarok 1.4, but now that I've deemed Amarok 2 stable enough, I've upgrade, however, the lyrics to my songs (which I put in a lot of effort in downloading), are not reflecting. Is there anyway to export lyrics from Amarok 1.4 and import them in Amarok 2?

Debian :: Wheezy 7.8 With Gnome 3.4.2 - How To Use File Tags

May 27, 2015

I'm using debian wheezy 7.8 with gnome 3.4.2.

In a random folder, if i right click on a random file for example a pdf file, i can see in the shortcut menu that appears the choice "tags". It is clear how i can create a new tag or associate an existing tag to a specific file.

My question is, how can i search for files that have a specific tag? For example if i have two files that i already gave them the tag "test", can i use some program and find that two files by using the tag "test"?

General :: Finding Unmodifiable Music File Tags?

Oct 17, 2010

I have some music files (.mp3 and .flac) which have unmodifiable tags: After I change the tags, they revert to their original values automatically. It's not related to access permissions (using Linux) as in a same directory, with the same permissions, some files have modifiable tags and other not. Is there such a thing as "protected" or "unmodifiable" tags? Are there solutions to force modification ?

Ubuntu :: Cssh Not Reading Cluster Tags From .csshrc File?

Feb 8, 2010

When using cssh, I define some cluster tags in my local .csshrc file. Other parameters seem to be picked up by cssh, but the tags are not.I have no /etc/clusters or /etc/csshrc files. I create a fresh, default .csshrc file and append a line like:myhost = frodoWhen executing "cssh myhost", I get: Can't call method "name" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/cssh line 988This is the same message I get if I make up some destination, like: "cssh doesnotexist". So it looks like rather than picking up the tag "myhost" from .csshrc, and translating the command to "cssh frodo", it does a dns lookup on myhost.I've tried making a /etc/csshrc file like this (but without the equal sign), but that doesn't work either. This is all on Ubuntu 9.10 with cssh version 273.

Ubuntu :: File Manager Than Can Organize By Tags - Like An Image Manage?

Oct 8, 2010

Over the years of working with both images (many) and other files (many more) it seems that it is easier to organize images. There are a variety of image software (digikam, gthumb, the new "shotwell") etc. Its easy to organize them with multiple references - date, multiple categories etc. This in fact makes it easy & efficient in our multi disciplinary world to access the same image for multiple needs.

However the same is not true for other files (od formats, pdfs etc etc) the only way we seem to be able to sort them is by what folders we make. Of course we can use meta search engines to find it by other keyword / dates etc. But it is not the same as being able to give multiple tags to a file and later being able to retrieve by that particular tag.So am wondering if such a file tagging / sorting and accessing "thingy" already exists and if so what is it. Or it is available and i don't know where to look.

Ubuntu :: Show File Names Instead Of Tags In Totem's Playlist?

Jul 20, 2011

Totem by default shows some sort of tags (if found) and not file names in the playlist. I don't like this, because I use Totem for video only and videos I get from the web usualy contains URLs and other such nonsense in the tags so I never know which file is which.

Can I somehow force Totem to always display file names?

Programming :: Using Key To Match Against Source.txt File To Add Xml Tags To Names In Perl

Jun 21, 2010

Using a list of names (over 4000 of them) painstakingly gleaned from the source file years ago for a database file, I want to match the names against the source file so that they can be updated with the tags <forename></forename> in the original source file.

I placed the list of names in @forenames (only posted a few of them here).

Perl script is:

I am able to get the name bracketed by the tags to appear on the console screen but don't know how to apply the output to the source file. Perhaps I need to do a match on the words then some kind of edit to surround the matching words with the xml tags? I'm a rank novice doing this as a labour of love for a friend.

Server :: Multiple File Pointers In A Single File?

Apr 20, 2011

I have files a, b, c and d. They're all relatively large and are served up by a static web server optimized for this purpose. I can get requests that look like this:


Each request is basically a request for a concatenation of the files in the order of the letters. The list of possible requests is finite, but large enough that disk space will run out very quickly and be very expensive if I create all possible files via concatenation.Is there a way to create a pointer file like abcd that is essentially a multi-file symlink that first points to a then to be then to c then to d? So if the contents of the files were as follows:

a: hello
b: there
c: whats

I have samsung laptop and there is a nasty program called samsung recovery solution that changes the active partition to Windows each time you enter it.

OpenSUSE :: Amarok 4.4.2 - How To Input File PATH

Apr 4, 2010

I upgraded my OpenSUSE 11.2 KDE 4.3.5.x to KDE 4.4.2 and am having a couple of issues. Not sure if I am just a bit stupid or impatient figuring them out or what... In Amarok, I used to be able to input or edit the path name under Files (i.e. Browse Local Harddrive for Content). This allowed me to quickly copy and paste a location from Dolphin / Konqueror etc. into and from Amarok for quick access across multiple applications (Especially when sorting out things). Somehow this is either missing (Not possible anymore) or I am to impatient or stupid figuring this out.

Fedora :: Editing A 26 Gigabyte Text File?

Jul 15, 2009

I did a pg_dump of our data warehouse, and it is 26 gigabytes. I wanted to load this data into a different database product (one that forked from Postgresql, so its syntax is very similar).I needed to change the syntax of the "COPY" command in the pg_dump output, remove references to "public", and change the table owner name. sed did these for me (albeit slowly). The output from pg_dump is a file called "pg-dump-output.sql".

pg_dump produces this:

General :: How To Get Color While Editing File Through SSH Session

Nov 25, 2010

I use cygwin on Windows7 to open a ssh session to my linux box. When I edit a file with vim, I don't have color, only kind of gray bold. I have colors when I do a ls into my ssh session. I have also colors when I edit files from a ssh session from my linux box to my linux box. I modified the shortcut on Window7 to run cygwin in 256 colors, no effect. Do I need to set an environment variable on my cygwin session ?
On Cygwin and On Fedora when "sshed" from Gygwin : TERM=cygwin

Ubuntu :: Kate Editing Java File?

Jan 30, 2011

I am a CS major and Iv'e been using vim with a custom rc file to do my editing... A professor suggested we can use kate with terminal for better speed so I thought I would give it a try. Unlike vim, geany, eclipse and others kate does not indent java code, for example after "{ <ENTER>" it should indent to the right 1 tab, but it does not, so I have to press <TAB> every time I go to new like, and I have to go back and forth for different statements...

This does not make things faster at all, Is this even possible? Any other editor suggestions that do not use GTK, but kde native Qt with terminal emulator?

General :: Any Way To Change Actual File Names Using Amarok?

Jan 9, 2010

I use amarok 2 and I have a lot of files that are titled "Track #.mp3", in Amarok I have changed them to see as the real songs but the actual files are still the same. Is there a way to change the actual file names using amarok to match the tags I have inside of amarok? The reason why I'd want to do this:

1. If my home folder becomes corrupt I don't have to redo 100's of songs (I have a backup but none the less
2. If I ever decide to use another program or if I'm in W7 using Windows Media Player classic it'd be nice to have it recognize the correct files without having to double up on the tag editing

If this isn't possible I'm going to wishlist it because I think it's functional and having a bunch of Track# files is a pain but impossible to get around when you have a lot of mix cd's.
