I have the latest version of Ubuntu, but I still can't update the music on my ipod with rhythm box.So here is the deal. I put a handful of songs on my ipod using my windows computer at my parents house. Now, when I plug my iphone into my computer, the device shows up, and I am able to add and delete songs in rhythm box. The computer says it's working, and the ipod says its syncing, but once its done syncing, none of the old songs are deleted, and none of the new songs are added. Also, the old songs can't be played anymore. I've looked all around for a solution to this problem but no one can help.
lucid is running great. rhythmbox is doing a great job of syncing audio with my iphone. however, what is the best way to sync video? i've tried dragging and dropping video files from nautilus to the iphone icon in rhythmbox...but that doesn't seem to work.how to sync video?
Basically, I want to be able to cerate a playlist in Rythmbox and transfer it onto my iPhone.When I try to do this it looks like it syncs, but it never appears on my phone. Normal transferring of songs works fine. Is it possible to do this?I'm using Lucid and firmware v 3.1.3 on an iphone 2g.
My wife and I have: iPhone 16GB 3GS on iOS 4.2.1 (not jailbroken) iPhone 32GB 3GS on iOS 4.2.1 (not jailbroken) We're running Ubuntu 10.10 and syncing our phones with Rhythmbox 0.13.1. It's painfully slow and skips songs sometimes. For 1500 songs, it's taking up to 5 hours. This is insane. I updated my apt sources and can mount our phones just fine. Syncing slowly is the only issue. I've read a ton of other reads about iPods having this issue as well, but not only were those issues never resolved by I haven't seen one with the actual iPhone.
I recently installed ubuntu and noticed somewhere that it says "Now you can say ubuntu has iDevice support out of the box". Naturally i tried, resulting in a music library with all the album artwork mixed up. I've tried to sync a couple of times, even added the repository for libimobiledevice and searched for the newest version (said it was already installed). When trying to sync with banshee (or rythmbox), it says syncing on my screen and on my iphone's screen. After syncing, my iphone updates the library, no new music is discovered. I can also add that banshee discovers 100 extra songs on my iphone.
I have two computers. One has UNR installed and the other Karmic. I back up my home folder from Karmic monthly. Is there any reason why I could not just copy the home folder from Karmic over the UNR home folder to synchronize my computers? I wasn't sure if UNR might not like this idea...
I can sync my Motorola Droid using the USB cable without any problems but I don't always have the USB cable with me and I haven't been able to sync my Droid using bluetooth. My laptop can see the Droid and the Droid can see my computer but it says on my Droid "Paired but not connected". All I want to do is send files back and forth (tethering would be nice but I don't really need to be able to do that).
I can now (I'm really not sure why) send files from my laptop running Ubuntu 9.10 to my Droid but I can't send files from my Droid to my Laptop. Also when I try to "Browse file on device" I don't see any devices even when I select phone as device type.
Being tired of my FAT32 partitions on my 80GB Classic, I had it reformatted on a Macintosh to HFS+ (Mac-formatted) at the Apple Store. As per the abundance of threads online, I also had them disable journaling through the Mac's Disk Utility and it appeared it was ready for Ubuntu. I added the UUID to fstab to allow write privileges. Due to the issues I heard with getting it to mount in Banshee on 64-bit Karmic Koala, I used the killall -9 nautilus command and successfully got Banshee to read and mount the iPod. After syncing my iPod, I verified that the content successfully transferred as the disk was now showing a large portion of the drive in use (presumably from the new media). After disconnecting my iPod, from both Banshee and from Nautilus, the iPod presumably safely unmounts and disconnects giving me the okay to unplug it. Whether I unplug it or not, after the OK to Disconnect progress bar completes, the iPod freezes (showing the silver Apple logo). After a while, it seems to turn itself back on, but doesn't show any media on the device. In fact, when I select 'About', it shows 0GB used and 0GB free (strange!).
I've been to the Apple Store about three times to have them reformat it and start over as I keep thinking I'm doing something wrong along the way. The data seems to be ON the iPod as I can play it back through Banshee (and on GTKpod), but the iPod menu itself doesn't seem to recognize anything and I can't access the music through the iPod. I think the iPod database may be corrupted, but I don't understand why this is not corrected with a full restore and why I seem to be able to access the music through Ubuntu.
(P.s. I do NOT want to have to go back to a Windows-formatted, FAT32, iPod.)
(P.p.s. I changed the permissions to my user rather than the 99 or something it was before. Also, whenever I load the iPod in Banshee, it shows all the songs on the iPod.)
I just installed ubuntu 10.04 x64. I have installed it and set it up the way I like on my server, however I now have 3 terminals and a laptop to set it up on the exact same way. As a result Id like some advice on what can and cant be done and how. Preferably I am looking to use programs with GUIs. Thing the style of ubuntu one, software manager etc, not really too into the command line, or conf editing unless there is no other option.
1. I installed all the software from software centre I like. Now I need the same software on the other computers. I know mint has mintbackup where it just exports and imports a list if installed software. I am looking for an ubuntu equivalent.
2. Firefox and Thunderbird add-ons. I install like 20 firefox and thunderbird add ons. sometimes I can't even keep track of them. There must be a way to sync them so that each computer I install ubuntu on I can simply import the list of mozilla add ons and have it auto download them.
3. Mail Contacts and Calender Syncing. I need to sync between my 3 ubuntu machines and my windows mobile 6.5 device for calender, email/phone/name contact lists. Email is taken care of by imap, but lightnings calender isnt and neither are the contacts. If I input a contact on my phone I want it to sync to the other computers I use.
4. Ubuntu one. I have /storage/workfolder in my root directory on my personal server. I want to be able to work on documents at work on my laptop and sync them so that when I get home, they are synced on the server without causing overwrite changes etc.
5. Desktop settings, icon themes, preferences from ubuntu tweak etc. I know this one is a bit more of a long shot, but it takes 20 minutes each computer, to set up the little maximize minimize buttons on the other side, set up cairo dock the way I like, install the icon theme and backgrounds I like. isnt there a way to back this up so it doesnt have to be done each time or so I can make my other computers the same?
Ubuntu one on my computer has stopped syncing sometime in the past week. It was working fine last week. I downloaded an album from the music store & it never showed up locally. I had to go to the website in Firefox to get the files.
In the UbuntuOne preferences it says it's connected. It shows my correct account information. Limit bandwidth usage is not checked. At the top it says "Synchronization in progress..." but it isn't doing anything. For the record, the u1sdtool output says code...
I just installed the Firefox add-on to sync my bookmarks between two machines, but it doesn't seem to be working. Is there another step I need to take besides checking the bookmark option and installing the Firefox add-on?
I disabled Xmarks and installed Firefox Sync. I tried Firefox Sync several times with no luck. I keep getting "Error While Syncing". When I check for further information, I get the message "Unable to Sync ... Unknown Error."
Xmarks still works fine but, as it is going to end soon, I would like to replace it.
this is the first app I have ever seen that *requires* the gnome key deamon (irritating thing that needs to be shot) but I'm trying to sync things on three systems and this just doesn't work. One system just stopped working.. no errors, nothing in /messages. The other two haven't synced a directory in months and I can't see any reason why not.Great idea but this app is a FAIL. Anyone doing this successfully through something else before I set up scripts and cron?
I have successfully registered to ubuntu one. The sync is working in the /home/lovo/Ubuntu One folder but I would like to sync my Picture folder, as it says in this picture there: When I click on this button, nothing is happening. Nothing appear neither in [URL]. Is folder sync working ?
This is some really weird issue. Whenever I plug in the iTouch, it plays that one connection sound twice, pretty close to eachother. The first time, on Rhythmbox, it shows up the iTouch. On the second tone, which is the same tone, it disappears. What's up with this?
I am getting an error when I try to boot my ubuntu 10.4 system (64 bit). Error:Kernel Panic- Not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0).I installed Sbackup and tried to create a backup of the home, var, usr/local folders. I started the backup and it ran for about 30 minutes then I got a message from the system that indicated that I was out of hard drive space, then the system froze. I restarted the system and then I got the above mentioned error.
I get this Kernel Panic when I start my PC once in a while. After a restart or two it boots normally. I have included a screenshot taken with my camera. Anybody have any idea what this is and how I can get rid of it?
I tried using gparted on a live cd to shrink a windows partition to make room for ubuntu. Then windows failed to boot. I deleted the entire disk and tried to install ubuntu 10.10. It seemed to install fine, but now when I start up I get
[ 0.869364] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
and a bunch of other stuff that doesn't look good. I saw some other posts about this error, and people are talking about lilo. I'm not sure what to do
I've used Ubuntu one for file syncing on my work and home computer (started on 10.10 only recently upgraded to 11.04, work is XP) and while it seems a tad slow in syncing it worked okay. Though I've used alternatives because they seem more responsive.
Well I've recently upgraded to 11.04 on my comp at home and installed 11.04 on my lappy (new install). Both are 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Thought I'd start using the other sync features and see how it fairs.
Well files appear to be okay (though I haven't tested it thoroughly yet), but I cannot get firefox bookmarks or tomboy to sync at all. I've searched through the forums but it appears to be only comments about it not working, I've yet to see anyone with a solution. I've checked out .cache/ubuntuone/log and all the syncdeamon exception logs are empty. I also just threw a file into the Ubuntu One folder and it synced damn fast. so it appears the only issues is with the bookmarks and notes.
