Re: Convert MP3 to M4R [SOLVED]

I went to the indicated link to download the appropriate version of wine (xenial main) but then found there were many more choices which I was clueless about. This is turning into more of a chore than it's worth to put a simple ringtone on my phone. A ringtone isn't that important. I think I'll leav...

Re: Convert MP3 to M4R [SOLVED]

I had no idea itunes could be installed through Wine. I have that already installed and will follow the instructions to install itunes per that second link. After downloading the 32-bit version of itunes, of course. Thanks for this and I'll get to it over the weekend. I'll post back after I've had a...

Re: Convert MP3 to M4R [SOLVED]

Thanks for the additional links. Nothing helpful there, though. From everything I can glean, itunes is the only way to get ringtones on or off, or even find them. itunes won't work in Linux that I know unless you install Windows on a virtual drive. It isn't worth all that effort.

Re: Convert MP3 to M4R [SOLVED]

OK, then. I changed the Linux firewall to allow incoming and that opened it up completely. I sent a ringtone to the phone and it went easily and quickly. Now, although it's on there, I have no idea where and neither does the phone. Thanks for the great guidance. Feem will certainly come in handy for...

I also tried using the hotspot on the phone but neither saw the other.

Re: Convert MP3 to M4R [SOLVED]

I installed Feem v4 on both the iphone and my laptop. The phone sees the laptop but the laptop doesn't see the phone. Also, the phone only sees the laptop if it's on wifi. I normally use a wired connection, which I would think would be as good as a wireless one or better. The phone is not visible to...

Re: Convert MP3 to M4R [SOLVED]

Well, that was more than I expected. My phone is an iphone 5S. I just got it connected. I think it has IOS 8 on it. I'd go for a newer one, but they're all just too huge. I like one that carries easily and doesn't feel like I'm running around with a book in my pocket. :lol I'll look into those appli...

Re: Convert MP3 to M4R

OK, then. I just created an m4r file from an mp3 with Audacity. I also did another one and shortened it some. So, that will do the trick. Many thanks. Now I just need to find a way to put the thing on my damned iphone. I copied it to my voice recording folder but the POS won't look there for it. I e...

Re: Convert MP3 to M4R

Thanks for the reply with the links in it. Before I proceed with anything, I like to know a little about what I am doing. I looked up aac and have an idea what it is. Is it basically the same as the M4R format? If so, I expect I could just rename the extension of an aac file and be in business. Is t...

Create Animated GIF [SOLVED]

I need to create an animated image file that cycles through two or three images in a closed loop. What software can I use for this?

I have Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit.

Thanks for any direction on this.

Re: Cell Phone Compatibility?

Thanks, I'll check the Moto Z series out. When I finally decide it will be for call/receive function and size (other than the Palm Phone, due to battery issues). I make and receive texts and calls plus take an occasional photo. I also use a corded headset. I don't need any aps beyond what it already...

Re: Cell Phone Compatibility?

Thank you for the replies. I intend to go look see about an Android. Verizon offers a wonderful little Palm phone now but the reviews say the battery life sucks or I'd think about one of those.
