Ubuntu :: Listen To Song It Opens VLC, But When Open Another Song It Opens Another New VLC Window?
Feb 27, 2010
As far as i know VLC is the best media player for linux bc it suppurts all file types. But there is one anoying problem - when i want to listen to song it opens VLC, but when i open another song it opens another new VLC window. And this problemug or whatever didnt apear in Windows version VLC player.
when i had windows and searched the music blogs there's links attached to the pages that let you download a song directly to your computer... with unbuntu, every time I click on these files it just opens up some visualizations in a new window while playing the song. anyone know how to change this?
My system boots, I login and am brought to my desktop. I click on the file system icon in the launcher to open a Nautilus window. The window opens, but is unresponsive (i.e., I can't move it, clicking on the icons does nothing, etc.). If I press the super key to get the dash and the press escape, the window becomes responsive again, just like normal.
If I open a folder in the window, the window becomes halfway unresponsive in that I can't move the window, but I can select more folders and toolbar icons. The top menu no longer appears at this point, and I can't access any of the system icons on the top right of the screen. Alt-F4 closes the window even if the close button doesn't work.As another example, suppose I open a Nautilus window and then a Chromium window. Both are immediately unresponsive. If I super-esc again, I can move the Chromium window around, and it seems to work normally. I can click on the Nautilus window, but it always stays greyed out. Even if I'm clicking on things in it, the Chromium window always has focus.
I had a similar experience to this with VLC and Chromium. After clicking around enough I eventually got it to the point where VLC apparently always had focus, but I couldn't access any of VLC's controls. Double clicking anywhere on the screen fullscreened the video, and that's all I could really do. Not even escape worked to bring it back.I can usually press super to get the dash and Alt-F2 to get a command prompt. Also Alt-Shift-T seems to usually work to bring up a working Terminal (at least one that accepts commands, even if I can't move the window).Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? The behavior is highly unpredictable and extremely frustrating. I should note that key commands don't always work, even though they seem to in my examples. So I don't think it's just a mouse issue.
I'm looking for some pointers on a method to "transfer" the song-playing from my laptop to my PC, both running ubuntu. The use case is: I'm home listening to some song on the laptop. Then I realize how crappy the speakers are. Here's what I do *now*:
1. Stop playback on the laptop 2. Get up, go to the PC, open the music player 3. Find the same song 4. Try to find the same point in the song 5. Stop playback on the laptop 6. Start playback on the PC (the PC has good speakers)
Of course now I'm dreaming of having a "button" I push that does all this all by itself. Can anyone give me some pointers?
I have seen when people click on an icon that is on the doc, it opens up a pop up window that has application you can click on. I have Cairo Dock. With it, I can add a shortcut menu and a Stack icon. From there,I can add applications, but they have a generic *.desktop icon. Is there any way to get the same Mac effect from Cairo Dock, or maybe even a shortcut to the applications folder in Ubuntu?By the way, can someone tell me the default path to the applications folder?"
In Pidgin browser preferences, it's set to open in new tabs. But when I click on a link in IM, it opens in a new window instead. Is this because I use Google Chrome in the Incognito (Private Browsing)?
The song book that we use at our church is rather pieced together, and I am looking for software that I can use to scan it all in, and set all the songs to the same font. The only thing I know of is Photoscore, but that is a little out of my budget. If you know of anything open source for Linux, that would be great.
I"m running 10.04 on a netbook. I switched my Java look and feel to Nimbus and now my java application opens with most of the buttons and window content missing. The main menu is there, but otherwise the main form is mostly blank. If I restart the application (not my computer) 2-3 times, the problem is resolved until the next time I have to launch the java app. I did not see this issue before changing the look & feel setting for Java. But the GTK l&F doesn't work for other reasons, so I was forced to make a change.
I'm running compiz and I know the blank windows in Java apps was a common problem a while back. I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is related to that old problem or is something different.
Thunderbird has been running on my Fedora 13. After a recent yum update, it opens a tiny window in the upper left corner of my screen, which I can enlarge manually. There are no contents in the window. I cannot see anything.
When I open an open office document from an NFS share it always opens as readonly. This was a problem I had on Arch linux and the fix was to change the locking options in the soffice script but I've tried that fix here and it doesn't work. I've seen a lot of discussions but they all go back to changing the locking options in soffice, has anyone got any alternative fixes or one that definitely works with locking?
I have setup a vnc server using the "every imagineable server" thread which setups up VPN using xinetd. I have also installed Beesu and its associated scripts so I can easily open root privileged nautilus windows.
beesu works a treat on the actual display. However whilst vnc'd into the box I get prompted for my root password (which it accepts) but a nautilus window never opens. No errors, it just doesn't open.
since yesterday when I open up an explorer style window, say I browsed folders in Gnome for each folder it opens a new window. However; when I go to change it so it does it in the same window either through edit properties or system/preferences/file management it does not open and instead a bugzilla window opens as it crashes (taking my desktop with it until it refreshes)
I have Suse 11.4 and GNOME 2.32.1 When I click on Computer -> Places -> Home then VLC Media Player opens instead of the window with my home folder that should actually pop up. The same thing happens with all other icons in the Places tab.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 with Firefox 4.0.1. from the firefox ppa. If I want to open the folder of a downloaded file with the right-mouse-button menu, kid3-qt is opened and shows the folder. I already tried the following: Removed kid3-qt -> Dolphin opens the folder, kid3-qt reinstalled leads to the same behaviour as before Reinstalled Firefox -> no change Removed the .mozilla dir to create a new profile -> no change mimeapps.list in ~/.local/share/applications looks like this:
So I was fooling around with compiz settings manager and was trying to get the cube to rotate around, and by doing so I disabled some plugins (because I was prompted to do so) and now Unity is gone and everything opens in the upper left hand corner so much so that I can't move the window. It was pretty rash for me just to disable plugins,how to get everything back to normal.
I was trying to view a dvd on ubuntu (which works on windows) so I downloaded a few progams from the synapatic manager and software center - nothing made the dvd work but now when I go to "places" and "home folder" movie player opens and has a error message window that is at least 10 deep that says "could not open location; you might not have permission to open file." I can't get to home folder at all!Did I totally ruin Ubuntu? Is this fixable? I rebooted and that didn't help
I am trying to set up a simple script to automatically invoke streamripper to record my favourite radio shows. The script works fine in a terminal window (Konsole), but when scheduling this as a cron job (KCron via SystemSettings) a Konsole window pops up catching the streamripper output.
Now stramripper can behave with the --quiet option, and I set output redirects "> /dev/null 2>&1". Inside the script or on the command line of KCron.
sh myscript.txt >/dev/null 2>&1
...or just as the script without the "sh" command. Same result. Still the same annoying Konsole terminal window pops up, now with no other content than what Cron obviously generates at the end of the script execution:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- End of script execution. Type Enter or Ctrl+C to exit. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, the whole point of this cron scheduling was to avoid manual intervention and create the MP3 file of the radio show automatically. how to avoid the terminal window completely?
I'm having problems with vpnc on F12 that work fine on F10 and F11. On F12, I can connect and can do some activities, but so far I noticed the following (show-stopping) issues:Attempting to connect to an Oracle database using either sqlplus or TORa hangs and eventually times out. I tried both the 11G and 10G instant clients.Copying a file to the host via a smb:// mount in nautilus freezes. An empty file is created though. A rdesktop client opens a "black" window and goes no further. I attempted to downgrade vpnc on my F12 workstation from vpnc-0.5.3-4.fc12.x86_64 to vpnc-0.5.3-3.fc11.x86_64 to no avail. I also downgraded libgcrypt too and this didn't help either. Moreover, I upgraded these to the F13 rawhide version - still no luck.
I also confirmed on a F11 virtual machine that these work and that it doesn't work on 2 x64 and 1 x386 F12 machines. (The configuration and the host are the same in all cases.)
Phenom 9500+ quad core, 3GB RAM, Nvidia 8800GT: 260.19.36 driver.Installed the latest Boxee for Linux. Got my remote setup. Everything works except when I open a video it opens in a tiny box in the upper left hand corner of my monitor.Is there any way to get Boxee videos to play full-screen?
i used to edit the mp3 song details such as artist, title, song number details and the album art in windows, i edited the same in UBUNTU using the "easy tag" but the album art is not visible when i transfer the song to my NOKIA phone as well as the artist details are not available when i am playing the songs in windows machine.
program to edit the sing details in UBUNTU so the edited details are visible in phone as well as windows machine.
I'm cleaning up my music library and deleting duplicates and during that process I accidentally deleted the wrong song. Is there some way to undo this process? Banshee gave me no warning, and the trash is empty. I'm assuming there's a command I can use to recover the file, but as I'm a complete noob, I need some assistance.
I am looking for a utility that will allow me to add required metadata to my songs after importing from CD or whatever. I do not want something that will find the information online. I want to have total control over that including the ability to do global changes on songs as well as one by one changes.
Right now I am trying out Kid3-qt and Ex Falso but don't quite know if I am using them properly.
I also tried Sound Juicer but I am not sure if it is really tagging properly when importing audio CD's.
Any other recommendations, and/or videos on how to use these utilities?
