Ipod, audiobooks and "Remember the last position" troubles
Hello there folks,
well my latest problem seems to be ipod related :)

I listen to a lot of audiobooks on my ipod so I need a "bookmark" option, or "remember last position" option that Itunes have. I've tried Amarok, gtkpod and Rhythmbox but none of them seems to have that option Any ideas ?

On gtkpod 0.99.8

right click the song you want to rember playback position

on the general tab on the bottom (you may have to scroll down) there is a few checkboxes, select the one to Remember Playback Postion and optionally Skip when shuffling.

Can't wait to get home to try this out :)

Sadly I can't seem to find the place with checkboxes or Remember Playback Position :(

When i right click I get:

Now this is even with menu open so you can see what I see... Could you please explain it a bit closer?

It looks like you are using an older version. gtkpod 0.99.8 was the first version to have feature you are looking for. You will need to upgrade to that version.

BTW I forgot when you right click you will need to select Edit Track Details

Well it certainly says gtkpod 0.99.8 both on Help->About screen and in Synaptic Package Manager :/

I took another screenshot showing both About screen and the other tab from Right Click->Properties window...

Could you please take a screenshot of what you see so I can compare it and possibly contact the author of the software?

At this point all I can think of is that fedora breaks on most upgrades (mp3 support and such). I had to compile it myself. As you can see my screenshot looks quite different than yours.

I see thanks a lot mate, I'll try and see if I can solve this one somehow, perhaps its time for me to learn to compile stuff myself ;)
