A-L-M-O-S-T There!!! Digikam, KAudioCreator, system bell install problems
Hello folks!!! Am using '06 and it's great. Have found the core software that is important to me and short of two titles that continue to frustrate me, Linux is wonderful!
Both titles - Digikam and KaudioCreator WERE working great once upon a time but both suddenly quit working. Won't say they failed at the same time, nor can I tie their failure to an event or action that I took.
I can't install Digikam. I can install the library, can install the extras. I can even install the main program and run it from /usr/bin but sometimes I get limited useability (importing pics creates weird folder names like dates wholly unrelated to the pictures). Have removed it and tried again. No luck. No Urpmi errors. It never gets added to the menus either. Help! Great program, want it to work.
KAudioCreator is also dead. I can start it up and it will accomplish the CBBD lookup on a disc but once I tell it to encode it crashes bigtime. Mentions io-solve, cd-protocol problems. LAME is installed. Grip did work last time I tried it. I prefer the "automation" of KAudioCreator. Place disc in the drive, rips automatically, asks for the next one, and so on. Encodes as quickly as it can (I use 1 track at a time). Am encoding our CD collection for easy Amarok / PalmPilot MP3 player use.
Not sure what else to do. I have removed the software, deleted any related hidden folders in my home folder and reinstalled. Obviously either a related file is missing or corrupted but I don't know where to start.
I have a very good user understanding of the GUI and menus but my command line knowledge lacks much.
HELP! <griN!> Thanks to ALL that try to help!
