Rymthmbox extracting cd permission error

Post by kate »

Trying to use Rythmbox to rip cds is not working for me.
I put the cd in, it catches the id data and I hit extract and it says
"Error transferring track
Error creating directory: Permission denied"

What do I do?
Thanks...

Rip tracks from the CD into rhythmbox ?
--sometimes people express it both ways rip meaning from or to; your method is which ?

    If you import/rip audio CD, in Rhythmbox you cannot set up quality like for example VBR 256kbps. You have only deault 128kpps. Also you cannot rip individual tracks from CD, only all tracks :(
--It may not be able to do a track at a time sequence: Rhythmbox

I don't know where it is trying to write to,
--but you could try running it as root and see if it completes
  • alt F2
    gksu rythymbox
--or start the application from the terminal, checking messages as it runs or fails

It starts for me as a user account (logged in username)
--shows my playlist
--and in Edit>preferences>Music TAB, I am watching my /home/mintuserID/music directories

I have ryhthmbox 0.12 installed, default with mint 7 gloria
OK, worked for me, even if I select only one track it extracts them all..

The permissions I have for the system directories /usr/lib, /usr/share; being the most likely places where you might have failed with a permission error

Code: Select all

ls -l /usr/share/rhythmbox
total 32
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root  4096 2009-04-20 10:04 glade
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root  4096 2009-04-20 10:04 icons
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  8585 2009-04-07 19:52 playlists.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 11964 2009-04-07 19:52 rhythmbox-ui.xml
mintuserID ~ $ ls -l /usr/lib/rhythmbox
total 92
drwxr-xr-x 23 root root  4096 2009-04-20 10:04 plugins
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 84780 2009-04-07 19:52 rhythmbox-metadata
You can check via the nautilus file manager for your access to these directories,
  • /usr/share/rhythmbox
    --you need access the files (r-- read permission)
    /usr/lib/rhythmbox
    --you need access and execute (r-x read xecute (execute permission)

Well if it can really only do 128k then I don't really want to use it to rip anyway.
Thanks for your help!
