K3B will not rip CD on Slack?
 
tried ripping a CD with k3b but the program did absolutely nothing when the function was chosen. Which strikes me as particularly poor user interaction, but that aside.

According to http://humanreadable.nfshost.com/jou...8/2008-034.htm and http://humanreadable.nfshost.com/sdeg/multimedia.htm the Slackware distribution has been crippled on purpose since a single maintainer (US based) cannot afford the potential legal cost in the US.

The aforementioned articles then proceed to list a gazillion of dependencies to be installed, after which k3b needs to be re-built on site. However, the articles date back to pre 13.0.

Is there an easier way? Yes I am aware of cdparanoia and oggenc, and they work fine. I would, however, prefer some comfort in the sense of defining file names and adding meta data according to track information, say, from cddb.

Or is this a totally unreasonable request in (almost) 2012?

kaudiocreator? grip2?

you can have a try also with dolphin ;)

http://www.gadgetweb.de/linux/cd-rip...cddb-data.html has a script that looks interesting - I may tinker with it a bit, as this is a problem that's bothered me in the past (I tend to use cdparanoia myself)

The first article also mentions the salix-codecs-installer,which might take care of your needs.

Martinus2u 12-27-2011 06:27 PM

ok, thanks for the suggestions.

The audiocd:// kioslave actually works very well, enabling Dolphin to rip on the fly. I am having some issues with the configuration, though, since I want a higher bitrate. Apparently configuration is via system settings -> multimedia, and I noticed some config files are updated in ~/.kde/share/config/kcmaudiocd*. The issues I mentioned are UI bugs and the fact that changes seem not to be taken. Maybe after a KDE restart.

Anyway, I shall continue to experiment. ;)

I found abcde to work well: abcde: Command Line Music CD Ripping for Linux

I received the tip in another thread at LQ.org: Methods to rip cds with Slackware and FLAC playback quality

But it may well be, that all you need are some codecs, if your source media are copy protected. I cannot comment on possible legal implications at your site.

Regards,

OK thanks, I have by now spent some time evaluating kaudiocreator and grip2. Both are a bit finnicky and need some time spent on the configuration, but will work eventually.

I shall mark this thread "solved", although i'm still a bit miffed about the k3b issue and the fact so much time needs to be spent on a staple computing task. ;)

we are talking audio CDs here, aren't we? I've been using k3b on Slackware for a number of years now. Have had no problems ripping audio CDs. If you want to rip to mp3, then you will need lame. Lame can be found on slackbuilds.org. Other open formats such as ogg-vorbis should rip straight from the box. Maybe you have permission problems - make sure you are in floppy, audio, video, cdrom, plugdev, power and netdev groups

Strange. I have lame, I have oggenc, I have flac, I also have cdparanoia, cdda2* and libdvd* for good measure. My user is in all the groups you mention. The block device has appropriate file permissions (root:cdrom 660). And yet the k3b function appears to be doing nothing (using the binary from the standard slackware package k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz).

Have you built k3b yourself? In that case the behaviour would be consistent with the first two links I posted.

I've never had to recompile k3b. I'm running Slakware64 current with alien's kde-4.7.4. The version of k3b is
Code:

k3b-2.0.2_20111028.git-x86_64-1alien
I think this is built the same as in Slackware repository. I'm also pretty sure it worked OK with 13.37. For comparison here are the permissions for /dev
Code:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvd -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvd0 -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvd1 -> sr1
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvdrw -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvdrw0 -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvdrw1 -> sr1
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvdwriter -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvdwriter0 -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root          3 Dec 29 10:45 dvdwriter1 -> sr1
.
.
brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom    11,  0 Dec 29 10:45 sr0
brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom    11,  1 Dec 29 10:45 sr1

I reckon that explains it.

I realize I'm doing necrophilia to a thread once created by myself, but I have to vent my anger that after so many years I have lost an hour again with this sh*t until I found my own thread from yonder years. Why oh why is it it so hard to rip a simple CD (for which I own all legal rights) under Slackware?

For posterity: Kaudiocreator does the trick.

GazL 08-09-2013 05:03 PM

cdda2wav, flac, easytag, is the way I've always done it. Never had a problem.

Asunder works nice and is intuitive.
