    gnomad2


    hey all. i have a creative zen micro mp3 player, and i was told that the only way to sync it with linux was to use this application (gnomad2). however, when i plug my zen in to my comp, the program says that no jukeboxes were found on the usb bus. i can mount it manually because its "directory" (for lack of a better word) doesn't show up in /dev/. when i do lsusb this is what i get:

    Bus 005 Device 007: ID 041e:411e Creative Technology, Ltd

    anyone know how i can mount it and use it with gnomad2?


    thanks

    Are you talking about the hotplugging script? It's part of the tarball.

    Did you install libnjb? v2.1 was just released today with many bug fixes. Give that a try.

    i haven't installed it yet. when i do apt-get install libnjb it can't find the package, so i need to find it somewhere.

    what's a tarball? in the link it says to make a script and i was wondering how to?


    thanks

    In order to use Gnomad, you have to install libnjb first. The Creative series uses a propeitary format that has been reverse engineered using USB sniffers. Libnjb takes care of all the communication between the device and the computer, Gnomad is just a fancy GUI to maniplulate libnjb. Go here:

    http://libnjb.sourceforge.net/

    and get the Tarball (a tar ball is a tar.gz. The Tar part is collection of folders and the gz part means it's zipped). Untar it and read the README file. It will tell you how to install it, how to install hotplugging for it and how to use it.

    *EDIT* The script you're refering to is the hotplugging script, which takes control of the Nomad from the system and passes it to libnjb. It is included with libnjb. All you have to do is run it.

    apparently, libnjb is available for debian as libnjb0, and i already have it installed according to my system. where do i access the script to find the device?

    EDIT

    i executed the script by just entering the lines into a terminal one by one. when i got to the ./configure line, it said './configure && make && make install && ldconfig'.
