audio convert

Postby lanrun » Tue Feb 19, 2008 10:31 am

I installed nautilus-script-audio-convert from the Synaptic Package manager, but I can't find the application on any menu afterwards. How can I run it?

Select an audio file, right click it, there it is.
You might have to restart nautilus for it to work though. (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace)

Trying to right click any flac file or mp3 file doesn't help; I don't get audio convert or nautilus as an alternative choice. I can choose xmms, vlc, kid3-qt, totem.... but not audio convert.

I had the same problem, but I found this on the Ubuntu forum:

Unfortunately, in Gutsy (at least on mine) it installs the script in /usr/share/nautilus-scripts/ConvertAudioFile but in order to be able to right click on an audio file and choose Scripts>ConvertAudioFile we need to have the script in the home directory in the .gnome2/nautilus-scripts directory.

So to get it there just:

Code: Select all

sudo cp /usr/share/nautilus-scripts/ConvertAudioFile ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts


Then, when I right-clicked on an audio file there was a 'scripts' entry in the menu. Convert away! :D

(Personally, I'm having a few converting issues, but I think something else is causing the problem. :( )
