Hi citizen of BLAG

I am wondering what good good music organizer do we have? BLAG has gtkpod but I dont have an ipod and i dont know how to save its song list and not requery the directories every time it starts (or am I missing an option) (I like like its interface though just a bit slow when adding songs and you cant do anything while it adds the songs :x )


OK OK OK enough rant just a little on the edge here.

TIA

Hmm, well other than xmms, there isn't anything on the CD, IIRC... Try grabbing rhythmbox from the repo and see if it does what you're looking for.

Please enlighten me...

The computer at home is installed with BLAG 30K no Internet Connection. So I Installed Rhythmbox at the work computer and copied the RPM download at the cache.

Now when I install rhythmbox at home it displays a msg saying it cannot proccess mp3 files. But if I use xmms it can play the files without problems. Don't the audio programs uses the same libraries. Do I need the nonfree codecs for rhythmbox to work properly?

Darn!!

You don't need non-free codecs for rhythmbox. Perhaps some gnome-audio-* packages?

OK another question, is there a difference when I install software thru synaptic, than installing an RPM by double clicking it in nautilus? (except of course the automatic download that happens with synaptic).

Because thats what I did I copied the RPM file in the cache and used it to install in the home computer. Also I am very confused why xmms CAN play the files while rhythmbox cannot.


Rhythmbox at home says it doesnt have the plug-ins neccesssry to play the mp3 files.

I found it the package needed is

gstreamer-plugins-extra-audio


Problem Solved (I think) need to try it at home

I actually installed another computer here with BLAG just to test :twisted: How I wish Ihave those emulator thingies to make testing a snap

Yep, that sounds like a package that would fix it. :)

synaptic will automatically get needed dependecies, whereas just running rpm won't.
