Thread: Playing ISO files, help, thanks.

    Default Re: Playing ISO files, help, thanks.

    I've chosen to extract the rpm file instead of running it, and after the extraction I got a new folder on the desktop, in which I can browse to the Acetoneiso2 bin file.
    I can use the program now, but when I mount the ISO file it does nothing, the Nugget itself doesnt come up or anything, in the options of the acetone program I choose VLC as the media player, but no luck anyway, still wont play it...

    What Desktop Environment are You running? GNOME or KDE? I think this is just a matter of adjusting autorun options.

    After some twiddling with VLC there is an option to play files with extensions that you say are on the CD. Open VLC, go to Media, then Open Disc then down there "Show more options" on left from Extra media click Browse and point it to the files on the disk.

    By the way, it's better to download VLC from the repo because it will download many necessary packages to decode the audio/video files. If you install from file you may miss many files which you'd need to watch the movies.

    P.S. You know, repo is there for a reason

    you are doing it ALL wrong..you are thinking Windows[tm], the OLD
    FASHIONED, labor intensive way...

    here there is (usually) no need to UNPACK compressed files...here you
    don't "go to that packman site", instead you go to (in this case)
    http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_Formats/11.1
    and follow your nose..

    in other cases you (and depending on which way you like best) add a
    software repository using either YaST or zypper, and then let one of
    THOSE do all the the rest of the work (by clicking on what you want in
    YaST or typing what you want in zypper)..

    READ man!
    http://forums.opensuse.org/install-b...ease-read.html

    which includes links IMPORTANT to your understanding of how we do it
    here--this will save you LOTS of time...because instead of asking here
    and getting a truncated (and possibly incorrect) answer you can
    actually read about, and do it the RIGHT way (or one of several right
    ways):

    Basic openSUSE concepts: for the Windows users migrating to openSUSE
    http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts

    Repositories - openSUSE-Community
    http://opensuse-community.org/Repositories

    soon you will be having lots of fun and lots less
    frustration...playing an iso should be drop dead simple...and, it will
    be once you stop trying to do it the WRONG way...well, maybe not wrong
    but certainly not the way that works here..

    ps: even when you are forced to download an RPM, still it is unneeded
    to "unpack" it, just right click on the file, select "Actions", select
    "Install with YaST", give root password....sit back and WATCH real
    innovation in process...

    Redmond *might* get as advanced in Windows 8...

    Man! You guys need to stop telling people that they are lousy drivers before they even get in the bloody car!!

    The guy is new, he doesn't understand ANYTHING about repos or .rpm files.

    Please, PLEASE, try to explain things as if the OP knows nothing. You were all new once, remember that?

    OK, to the OP:

    I have to go to work so can't write any more this morning, but if you have no luck during the day, I'll help you later on. Persevere, and don't be put off with all this nonsense, it's fairly easy to do what you want.

    Growbag, you're right. I and other people failed that he is new to this business

    I guess after installatio there should be a pop-up window explaining all the differences and how to do them or at least pointing them to an online tutorial.

    i did--or at least that was my intentnion!

    the problem is the answers he was getting was not helping BECAUSE he
    didn't have the background to use them..

    i provided LINKs to enough background to get him started...and,
    hopefully OFF the old download-a-zip-unpack-double-click-FINISHED
    mantra he was trying..

    it is REALLY easy...but, different from the way you are used
    to...sooner you read/learn how to do it here, the sooner you have more
    fun here..

    Playing iso images isn't all that complicated folks, xine can do it, mplayer can do it........

    xine dvd:/path/to/your/DVD/image.iso

    mplayer dvd://1 -dvd-device /path/to/your/DVD/image.iso

    Hi there, good afternoon.

    Well, first of all, many many thanks to everybody who is trying to help/helping me here.

    I must say I'm fairly new to Linux (apart from using RedHat 8 in the past for a bit), so I know I've got a lot to read/learn here, problem being I havent got much time for that at the moment, but I'll honestly try my best to make this work.

    Last night I got really frustrated (coming from a "Windows world" is something I was expecting to happen sooner rather than later...), but in the end I could install AcetoneISO from the Packman site, and it installed all codecs with it.
    I could then mount the ISO with ACetoneISO, and open it with Firefox, see the contents of it with all the links and everything, so that was a huge step forward for me
    Still, when I clicked the links on it to watch the actual videos, they wouldnt play, but I suppose that should be easier to fix, installing some more codecs or any tweaking within Firefox should solve that issue I hope, so I'm much happier now

    I have to reckon I dont know nothing about how this all works, Yast, rpm, tz, Repos... again, I've got a lot to read and learn
    I'll use the links you put here and start reading there, hopefuly I'll get a slight notion of how this all works soon, and start using it as my everyday OS.

    I'm at work at the moment, so I will try something else later on this evening, and again many thanks to you all for your help and patience
