With the help of some other on another forum I have managed to get Audio Cd's playing in Grip but can not get them playing in Xmms or KsCD (unless I run KsCD as root), KsCD crashes when I try to play a song, it comes up with the tracks and Artist info. Xmms will play MP3's ok, if I look at the Option|preferences|CD Audio Player config and click on Check Drive it says:The ?dev.. is ok, there are 18 tracks etc and the /media/... is ok, so it can see the CD ok. How do I make it play?
Go to options, then preferences then under the Audio I/O Plugins tab, select CD audio player. Hit configure, then under play mode, select digital audio extraction. That's how I do it. Hope this helped.
I found that if I run Gnome-cd directly (i.e automatically when I insert an Audio CD), it fails to play.
However, if I close that, open a Terminal window, SU to Root and then run Gnome-cd as Root, it plays.
Is there a way to make Gnome-cd run as Root directly please anyone, like a shell script to SU and then exec Gnome-cd perhaps?
Incidentally, when trying to get the CD-writer to work, I used chmod to change the permissions on the CD reader and Writers to 666. This fixed the CD Writing but Gnome-cd will still not play the Audio CDs.
I had this problem too. I updated udev, which took care of me having to constantly change the permissions on the CD drive for playing audio. After updating udev, I haven't had to change permissions (chmod).
I am really confused now. In KDE I turned off aRts and that seemed to fix alot of problems. In Gnome I can now play a CD using the CD player from the Sound&Multimedia menu. Grip is working fine. Xmms plays CD's if I show it where the CD is (ie like selecting MP3's) but will not automatically play a CD. I haven't tried K3b recently but I suspect I have to run that as su. I have managed to get sound running in Mythtv ok.
My biggest issue now is getting the Gnome mixer to stop defaulting all its settings when Gnome starts up.
udev is up to date. Permissions don't seem to be the problem.
