I have an odd problem in Slackware 12 and xfce where only mplayer can play music cds. I am able to play audio cds perfectly as follows:
$ mplayer -cache 10000 -cdrom-device /dev/cdrom cdda://
But the media player audacious (Alt C) has the following message:
No PlayableCD found
No CD inserted, or inserted CD is not an audio CD.
I am also able to rip music cds using cdparanoia with no trouble.
Any thoughts on this one? I was thinking of installing another media player to test this out a little more and had my eye on orpheus as I am not into the big kde apps :-)
