Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When starting up totem does not recognize url's at all. You need to re-tell what to open: dragging the film to totem or just with the menu.
If you're using KDE, go to konqueror's configuration -> File association and look for video types. Then, you'll need to change every video type, raising mplayer to top. Once done, you'll only need to click on video files to auto-open them with mplayer.
You need to add some info:
What are you using? KDE, gnome...?
Which program are you speaking about? konqueror, dolphin, system settings, ...?
It's not important at all which [x,k,\0,...]ubuntu you use.
I answered all that questions in my previous treats!!
error occurs: Location not found
I tried to fix that by editing the settings for removeable devices in the main menu (xfce menu). There you can specify a command that should be executed if a cd was inserted.
I tried the following commands:
Because of the error of Totem I installed audacious. Audacious starts but don't plays any music. Instead of playing music audacious opens the file browser where you can search for tracks. I have to cancel that window and press the plugin button "Add CD". Then music starts playing.
gmplayer works but is not as nice as audacious.
Back to my questions:
1. Why does Totem return the error: Location not found
I installed a standard xubuntu 8.04. Listening to music should be standard. Other users should have the same problem I think but didn't find any useful in the web.
2. Audacious should start playing music automatically after inserting a CD. Is that possible at all or do I have to press the plugin button "Add CD" every time.
If you miss any further information pls let me know!
VLC is a great media player. It is the one I usually use.
The thing is when you put a CD or DVD in a Xubuntu box totem starts up and gives an error. I have always just ignored it. I don't really use totem.
The thing is, I wanted to know WHY I was getting the error. As it turns out. It is a problem that has been there for at least a year, if not longer. The least I could do for open source, is post the fix for the problem.
I have the same problem with Movie Player when trying to play a DVD I get: "An error ocurred. Location not found" then I tried it on VLC and it does recognise the DVD just doesn't work, it doesn't play it.
