Something GUI for newbies like me, please. Not everyone is as 1337 to be going CLI.

Bruce Hill 10-14-2005 02:22 PM

I don't know of anything GUI. The power lies in the command line interface.
You could create a new directory for testing, say /home/<username>/testing,
where you insert your username in <username> and give one a try. We don't
really know what you have, or what you want to do. Please, for learning some
about how to post, read How To Ask Questions The Smart Way ...

I don't know what a 1337 is, but I don't think I'm one. I've been using Slackware
for not quite 2 years, and I can use command line. Just backup your data, check
what it's going to do in a safe environment, and let her rip! If your data is safe,
the worst thing you can hurt is your pride. ;')

Have you tried Audacity?

FYI, 1337, means Leet, or elite.

If you are going to try to lecture someone, at least follow The Smart Way yourself. And using proper syntax would be a good idea. :rolleyes:

I have newbie experience. In other words, I am new in Linux, and I am not accustomed to CLI or doing things from console.

And I want to convert music multiple files at once using a GUI programme. As stated in the first 2 posts by me.

Was that so hard to understand?

I have bad experience with CLI, okay?

I tried mass renaming scripts with CLI, and I ended up overwriting other files in the process. Including overwritting the script that I ran.

I tried to install source packages, and it didn't work for me.

I cannot even get apt to install from the console.

Some people just don't like CLI or doing things the old school way.

Of course. That is the most popular convertor/editor for Linux.

But can't convert multiple files like I mentioned in the original post.
