I can't get any music to play on Amorok...I plugged in my iPod and all the album covers, songs and all that are listed, but nothing will play! In fact nothing plays on Xmms or anything...currently a slackerAMD64 current...any ideas on how to get this working to listen to music? Also I have a digital camera and a web cam I can't seem to get working either! I am operating on an HP latop and everything else works but the most critical things....if I can't get them working , going to switch back to Debian!

First of all, welcome to the forum.

You will need to supply some information if you want us to help you resolve the problems you have.

Sound. What have you done to try and resolve the problem?

Digital cameras. Make and model. How are you connecting it to your system? What software have you tried?

Same questions for the web cam.

Open a command prompt, run the following commands as root user, and post the results for each command.

lspci This lists the devices on your pci bus, this is where a sound cards are, unless you have purchased an after market usb sound card.

Plug in your cameras, then run the command lsusb and post the results. This will show us what cameras you are dealing with.

Did you do s full install?

Also run the command lsmod and post the results. That will list the modules you have loaded.

As has already been said, check the groups assigned to your user with the 'groups' command. There is further information here. http://docs.slackware.com/slackware:...a_user_account

A default Slackware install does not include the gst-plugins-bad and gst-plugins-ugly packages needed for some audio file formats (e.g. mp3) http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/doc...n/plugins.html. The packages are available from SlackBuilds.org. http://slackbuilds.org/result/?search=gstreamer&sv=14.1

I've attached 2 screenshots listing the information you requested! I apologize for the lack of information to start. It has been an absolute chore to get Slack installed on this laptop I didn't realize you had to enable Legacy support in the bios.. Then after I got everything installed the mouse wouldn't work or "X" couldn't find a screen and just one thing after another! But the good news is all those issues have been resolved...now I need to get music to play and get my cameras to work under Xfce
I have tried Amorok, Xmms, Audacious, none of them will play music imported from my iPod, though the album covers and playlists and everything are listed. But hitting the play button nothing happens....don't even get error messages.

From the output of 'lsusb'.
The camera appears as ID 04b0:034f Nikon Corp.
The webcam appears as ID 05c8:036e Cheng Uei Precision Industry Co., Ltd (Foxlink)

The webcam is reported to work correctly when the user is a member of the video group. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=193009
I am not finding information quickly on the Nikon camera, but suspect it would work if the user is a member of the plugdev group. (Ditto for the PNY thumb drive and the wireless mouse).

It looks like you have the sound drivers loaded.

I have an older Nikon camera, I had to go into camera settings and change to MTP mode, to get mine to work with Digikam.

I would suggest you open a console and run the command groups, copy and paste the results here. Audio may be not working due to lack of groups for your user. You could also bring up a mixer and make sure you are not muted, and the volume is turned up.
