Creative Zen V

Postby Andrew on Wed Jun 06, 2007 5:30 pm

I am able to use my Creative Zen V with Gnomad2 in Fiesty, but I am not able to in Cassandra. I have since made Cassandra my the only distribution on my computer, and I am trying to figure out why it worked before with Fiesty.

Oddly enough, with Cassandra the mp3 player does not seem to recognize being plugged in and is not seen by the Gnomad2.

Is there some backend change between Fiesty and Cassandra that might have caused this? Can I change anything?

Thanks!

So have you installed Gnomad2 onto Cassandra?

I am wondering what Libs are used by Gnomad2 and if your device is seen as a usb storage device or a PTP device like a camera.

to amuse me you could install f-spot, a photo tool, this should install the libs required for PTP devices.

worth a try anyway. :wink:

:D

for my creative zen vision:m i used libnjb and libmtp in combination with gnomad2. but you have to make some symlinks... gosh, it has been ages ago since i installed my zen (on kubuntu dapper that was)... It was difficult, but it worked... but i dont know the exact way anymore.

accidentally posted this at the toplevel. Try running gnomad2 as root (sudo gnomad2); if this succeeds, please reference http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3249 for the rule. If not, let me know- I have both a Zen Vision:M and a Zen V Plus working under this arrangement.
