Re: No FLAC support for ripping with mint-meta-codecs installed?

OK, with many views but no solution, I went back to looking through the forum and found another thread with a solution that worked: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=203664 Still seems strange that with the Mint codecs meta package installed, a Free Lossless Audio Codec would have been in...

[SOLVED] No FLAC support for ripping with mint-meta-codecs installed?

I have Mint 19.3 XFCE with all current updates and I'm trying to rip an audio CD to FLAC with Asunder. The mint-meta-codecs package is installed, but Asunder complains that the FLAC codec is not in its path. What's up, and what do I need to do to fix it? There is another post here about installing F...

Can't mount Google Drive

Used to use the following command to mount my GDrive in XFCE.

Code: Select all

google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/google-drive
Worked on Mint 19.1, but not on 19.3 Just seems to lock up the file manager.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

Frank.

Re: [Solved] USB 2.0 port will not work with USB 2.0 Mic

Well, it probably is a weird USB thing with this particular machine. It is an older machine, and it may have an earlier revision of USB 2.0 in the firmware. My two other newer machines don't have a problem with the Yotto mic. But that is not to say that the Yotto mic is fully plug-and-play compliant...

Re: USB 2.0 port will not work with USB 2.0 Mic

OK, sent the Yotto mic back, and got this instead: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07YTS5YYX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Works out of the box.

Re: USB 2.0 port will not work with USB 2.0 Mic

And didn't you say it also worked with other devices in the home? It works with both of my other two Linux boxes, but not on the one where I NEED it to work. Amazon has a similar product that claims Linux compatibility, but it is a bit more money. Oh well. I'll let you know how that one works out. ...

Re: USB 2.0 port will not work with USB 2.0 Mic

Yeah, 20.0 has the same issue on this machine. My next step I think is to send this microphone back and order a different brand.

But at least I now have an installation of 20.0 to play with. :-)

Re: USB 2.0 port will not work with USB 2.0 Mic

Yeah, me too!

I can always send this microphone back and get one that claims greater Linux compatibility.

Anyway, I'll try installing 20 first, as I really need to go that route eventually anyway.

Thanks again!

Frank.

Re: USB 2.0 port will not work with USB 2.0 Mic

I wonder if it is time to update to Mint 20 before I go down that route? This machine is my 'testbed' machine anyway, as it has a swappable system drive. I can do an install of Mint 20 on another drive in another drive caddy, and test it for a while before committing to it. I'm starting to think th...

Weird. How can it be 'busy'? But that might explain why it is not responding, no?

Re: USB 2.0 port will not work with USB 2.0 Mic

That means it was the webcam mic that was recording the other time that worked. I really didn't think that theory was right, so I tested it. I put a blanket over the C600 webcam, swung the Yotto mic WAY out of the way, and whispered right up against the Yotto mic. You were right. It was the C600 we...
