    I hope there is a simple CD solution at LinuxForums!


    As a technology challenged old man ( getting fat on the Internet at wee hours of the morning ) I have a perplexing problem. In the daytime I can put a CD into the CD player on the other side of the room I'm in while my computer is booting up.

    However at 3:00AM I want to be able to put a CD into my HP a532x computer and plug in the headphones and listen to music that no one else will be disturbed by. I have a Banshee music player on my Suse 10 OS but I have to put the music into a music file and then look for it before Banshee will play it through the computer.

    What I need is a CD program that will play a CD right away with very few procedures. Does such a Linux software program exist somewhere? Thanks!!

    SoundJuicer can play from CD's. I'm sure many others can too, but that's what pops up when I put the CD in.

    Something like KsCD

    I am not doing something or doing something the wrong way because Banshee is still the only CD player that works.
    I think that because I use a Gnome desktop Amorok will not even open up.
    Soundjuicer opens but says the format is wrong.
    I need to learn more about Suse 10 and how I can get it to function.
    Thank you all for your input!

    Xmms

    I use Xmms. It has ability to play CD's. Since you're on Suse 10, you'll have to add audio codecs. As I remember KsCD is also on Suse. The only thing you'll have to do is to tell him in Preferences to play CD digitally (if your CD-drive isn't directly wired to the motherboard, like mine isn't)
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    Amarok runs quite happily on my GNOME and Xfce desktops. Well, I can't exactly say happily, since every once in a while it tends to fail to open mysteriously. You do need to have a lot of KDE stuff in order for it to run, though. QT, etc, etc.

    There's a couple ideas. I'm not sure about Suse, but I'm sure it has something similar to what I'm used to on Ubuntu: I can go to 'system/preferences/removable drives and media' and choose which software runs when a CD is inserted (also useful for iPods and flash drives). I'm not sure if this is a GNOME feature or an Ubuntu feature since this is the first distribution where I've used GNOME.

    GNOME comes with a cd player. Try using that.

    BTW, you're not trying to mount the cd are you? Music CD's don't need to be mounted.

    Do you receive any error messages? Is there anything else that signifies any problems?
