Zen Micro Error using Gnomad2 and Fedora core5


OK, i installed gnomad2(and hotplug + libnjb) through the package manager provided with fedora. I then plugged in my MP3 player and started gnomad. As soon as i opened the program i got this error:

Could not open jukebox:
usb_set_configuration: Operation not permitted

should i try again as root, and if i should, how do i run the program as root? Thanks for your time.

Hi,

I kind of have the same problem

Code:
sean@mong:~$ gnomad2
usb_set_configuration: Operation not permitted
When running it as root:

Code:
mong:/home/sean# gnomad2
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
(gnomad2:14027): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
When i run gnomad through kde i get "No jukeboxes found on USB bus" when my zen touch is unpluged. When it's pluged in "Could not open jukebox"

Code:
sean@mong:~$ lsusb
Bus 004 Device 004: ID 041e:411b Creative Technology, Ltd Nomad Jukebox Zen Touch MP3 player
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0781:9393 SanDisk Corp.
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
My puter obviously sees the player, just will not work with any software

Running debian sarge BTW 2.6.8-2-386.

Please help, been at it for a few days now.
Cheers

Finally sorted the problem

I did this which i found on another site:

Create a new file /etc/hotplug/usb/nomad.usermap with the following:

Code:
# Creative Nomad Jukebox
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x0471  0x0222  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
# Creative Nomad Jukebox 2
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x041e  0x4100  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
# Creative Nomad Jukebox 3
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x041e  0x4101  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
# Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x041e  0x4108  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
# Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen USB 2.0
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x041e  0x410b  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
# Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen NX
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x041e  0x4109  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
# Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x041e  0x4110  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
# Dell Digital Jukebox
nomadjukebox    0x0000  0x041e  0x4111  0x0000  0x0000  0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00    0x00     0x00000000
Then, create a nomadjukebox file in the same directory with:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Lifts a plugged in nomad jukebox to user space and
# optionally runs a client program.
# Written by Linus Walleij 2004, based on the "usbcam"
# script by Nalin Dahyabhai.
DEVICEOWNER=root
DEVICEPERMS=0666
PROGRAM="cd ~; gnomad2 --display=localhost:0"

if [ "${ACTION}" = "add" ] && [ -f "${DEVICE}" ]
then
    # New code, using lock files instead of copying /dev/console permissions
    # This also works with non-gdm logins (e.g. on a virtual terminal)
    # Idea and code from Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com>
    if [ "x$DEVICEOWNER" = "xCONSOLE" ]
    then
        if [ -f /var/run/console.lock ]
        then
            DEVICEOWNER=`cat /var/run/console.lock`
        elif [ -f /var/lock/console.lock ]
        then
            DEVICEOWNER=`cat /var/lock/console.lock`
        else
            DEVICEOWNER=
        fi
    fi
    if [ -n "$DEVICEOWNER" ]
    then
        chmod 0000 "${DEVICE}"
        chown "${DEVICEOWNER}" "${DEVICE}"
        chmod "${DEVICEPERMS}" "${DEVICE}"
        # Then run an optional program - this does not work yet.
        # su "${CONSOLEOWNER}" -c "${PROGRAM}"
    fi
fi
Now chmod nomadjukebox to 775.

BTW - This is pinched from a linix site where the owner pinched it from somewhere else. I don't know how it works, but i know that you do not have to be root to run gnomad2 after doing this.

Working Solution for Ubuntu Dapper Creative Zen Microphoto 4GB USB MP3 MTP

I have spent absolutely ages searching for missing dependancies, going in circles with Gnomad, KZenExplorer abd MTPDude with missing dependancies, conflicting versions and more to boot. Finally I got desperate and "Googled" 'Zen creative ubuntu HELP!'. I came across this solution >>

ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=199250

Using the auto-installer script half way down the page it took less than 30 seconds to get my Creative Zen Microphoto MP3 player working. I recommend this to anyone with the following setup:
  • Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06
  • Creative Zen Microphoto 4GB

If you have been searching and have hit dead ends on other forums please do what I have done and reply to any live forums explaining the solution to this so than anyone else with this product doesn't get as frustrated as us!
