Ripping CDs' fails after previous success

Have an HP Pavilion with a DVD-RW and had success ripping CDs'. All of a sudden I'm unable to rip with Soundjuicer. When reading the disk, Soundjuicer is able to list the tracks, but will exit when I attempt to extract. When that task failed, I was able to view the CD and copy the wave files to a di...

Re: Gnome 3 Review

I do not like Gnome 3. Unable to configure it to my taste as with Gnome 2xx, why???

Re: No 5.1 Surround in Mint 12

Does Pulseaudio use alsa?
Is alsa installed in Mint 12?

The reason asking is, looking at installed programs, alsa and pulse are on my system. Could there be a confict problem with these two sound systems?

Re: No 5.1 Surround in Mint 12

Considering that Pulseaudio is being used, invoking alsamixer does not sound exactly like the way to go here... Try with pavucontrol instead. I used alsamixer as a last resort. I go to "Sound Settings" and select "...the device to configure". Choosing the "Settings" pr...

Re: Burning Bluray's in Mint 12

Well, it seems Kb3 does not handle bluray disks. Copies fine until the very end and gives an "input output" error...waisted every disk burnt by Kb3. Should I post the error log?
Having to rely on NeroLinux. Any ideas?

Burning Bluray's in Mint 12

Been using NeroLinux4 to burn Bluray's, but Nero has no plans to update it in the future, as there is no user support.
Is there any chance that Brasero, or any other Linux burning app, handle Bluray's in the near future?

Thanks for the replies vrkalak.
You are correct. By checking the subscribe box in the topic, it does not notify you. It must be selected in the options tab, when posting, that I overlooked!

Question on forum topic subscriptions. [Solved]

When subscribing to forum topics, does the forum e-mail members of new posts?
If so, it does not notify me.
I have "Subscriptions" and "Notify me when a reply is posted", checked.

Re: I need to introduce myself

If you have not tried it, give Openshot Video Editor a go. There is a thread about it in the Mint forums. It is not currently in Mint. It is in the repositories for Ubuntu and can be installed from the PPAs to Mint8. It will be included in Ubuntu 10.4, Lucid Lynx, and I therefore expect to see it i...

Re: VirtualBox Error in Linux Mint

I would suggest getting the Sun version as remoulder and beefstu suggested, but I think it's a better idea to add the repository than directly install the deb. If you add the repository you will get any available updates for Virtualbox, whereas with the deb you will have to manually find and downlo...
