Thread: cannot open CD in sound-juicer

    Default cannot open CD in sound-juicer


    I am using openSUSE 11.4 with XFCE.

    Since I was struggeling with MP3 support for sound-juicer I installed proper gstreamer package (I think gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly-orig-addon)...
    I reinstalled sound-juicer and now can select MP3 format.

    Now I have different issue. My CD is mounted properly in XFCE, but is not visible in sound-juicer.

    When I try :

    sound-juicer cdda:///dev/sr0

    in terminal I get an error that sound-juicer cannot get access to 'dev/sr0'

    Surprisely when I type:

    vlc cdda:///dev/sr0

    VLC plays everything just fine!
    No problem at all
    Therefore I do not think it has anything to do with user rights. Here outcome from the command 'groups' :

    rafal@linux-resp:~> groups rafal
    rafal : users audio cdrom disk haldaemon pulse video

    when I log in in GNOME, I user right mouse click on CD and then select to open in sound-juicer. It works fine!
    But when I do the same as in XFCE (in terminal) I get he same error.
    I read something about gvfs which might have to do something with the problem, but I do not know what to do.

    what can be wrong?
    any suggestions ?

    thanks. I have installed aSunder and its really better (I can rip my CD's to APE and MP3 at once)

    Regarding sound-juicer I have discovered that

    (1) indeed CD is somehow not mounted. When I mount it (open CD content and see WAV files) then it works. This is logical, though why I do not need to do those steps for VLC. Does VLC mount CD whenever I try to use it? Before I reinstalled sound-juicer it behaves like VLC. When I started application, CD content was automatically loaded without opening CD in file manager

    (2) after CD was mounted the correct command is:
    sound-juicer cdda://sr0 its not the same as for VLC

    Music CDs can not be mounted. They can be read by special software, ripped,
    but never mounted, they do not contain a filesystem.

    Some software do something that looks like it mounts them. But they don't.
