Open ROX to folder with MP3s. Right click and select "Add to Pmusic Playlsit". Nothing!

Open Pmusic tried to open a folder and have it play. Nothing again

Hmmm. yes the other player works. Hmmm. Anyone else having the same?


I have to say,something is definitely not right.
If I left click on an mp3,it opens in 'Pmusic'and plays ok.
If I do a right click on an mp3 and select 'Add to Pmusic playlist',it adds the mp3 but wont play.
At the bottom of the Pmusic GUI it says 'Source not detected'.

I should test the mplayer gxine differences.
Now in Snow Pup I do have Mplayer? And it
get off sync on some short music clips.
Maybe Gxine does not. But I have VLC too
and that one fall out of sync so maybe it is the clips being bad.

There are actually 2 different versions of mplayer nooby. The version in the plain update is the same as in 5.2.8 and in Polar Pup (I assume) using the ffmpeg libraries version 0.6. The version in the update with the multimedia upgrade is the newest version of mplayer using the libraries version 0.8.2. You could try both and see if you notice any difference.

Also, Lucid does not include gxine, but includes XineDVD. What that means is that it uses xine-ui instead of gxine. That is present mainly for playing DVD's but it will also play videos. My experience is that it does not play as many different kinds of video formats as mplayer (which is why we moved from gxine to mplayer in the original Lucid 5.0).

Dang, dang, dang. How did that stupid dang error message slip back in there?

To fix it, open /usr/share/applications/gnome-mplayer.desktop and find the line that says 'Exec=gnome-mplayer %U', delete the %U, and save.

Oh, it seems it didn't sneak back in--it has been that way the whole time Embarassed

Did some kind of audio loop repeat and never showed the movie.

That's why we have both gnome-mplayer and XineDVD Wink Gnome-mplayer should do the DVD menus better than it did, that is, if it does the DVD menus.

Bigpup, You could try opening gnome-mplayer then Edit -> Preferences and changing the Video Output to x11, to see if it will play that DVD right, but then it probably won't do the menus right..

A little later than planned.......was installing Xubuntu 11.10 on an old P3 (866 Mhz/512 Mb ram)........painfully slow install and pretty darn slow trying to use. Laughing

Lucid Puppy 5.2.8-002M, fresh manual frugal install on the Athlon XP box.All the basics good ootb as expected.

DVD in Xine DVD, no problems. Menus working,able to toggle to fullscreen and back. DVD in Gnome MPlayer working correctly too, no problem with the menus or fullscreen.Other than the silly error message. Smile Took care of that really quickly.

One problem:
Click on menu->multimedia->Gnome Mplayer
Get an error message and player.
Have to close error message window

Do not get error message if started by clicking on desktop play icon.

Have you tried Three-Headed Dog? It uses the same kernel as Slacko.

No. But my only USB3-capable PC has an Invidia video display (M210, IIRC), and I gather from your link that Three-Headed Dog won't work with Nvidia adapters.

In any case, I won't have another chance to test USB3 until the coming weekend.


Three-headed Dog should work fine with the default nv driver. What might not work is the proprietary nvidia drivers, but another report said they would work--but it should boot and run with the default driver.


As reported here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=576215#576215
I've had no problems with the Nvidia 96.43.19-k2.6.37.6-s driver on my Athlon XP box with an old card and the 275.09.07-k2.6.37.6-s driver on a couple of boxes with the 8400 GS cards.

goutam, Here is a version of lupu-528 that will load into ram on computers with only 256MB ram. It does this by putting the drivers into a separate file. Slacko works the same way. We had trouble with this arrangement early on in Lucid so we did not use it after that, but it works for my 256MB ram laptop.

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/lupu-528.002_for_256MB.iso

Testers wanted for this new version for 256 MB ram, and also wanted for testing updated ISO with and without the Multimedia Upgrade.

Thanks @Playdayz. I was hoping you could do this. You may want to move the announcement of these to the Opening Post on this thread. Thanks, in any event.

Very good test. No issues. Systems Report is attached.

@Playdayz - check PM
