Good news... I was able to burn an Audio CD with my LG GP30 DVD burner.

Procedure:

Launch ...

Multimedia > PeasyDisc optical disk Tools

Drag a folder of wav audio files to open window.

Temp folder is inside /mnt/home/

The burn took only a couple of minutes ... GOOD!
__________________________________________

pburn program --> I had problems with burning an Audio CD. Maybe because
I was using a network share folder to hold my temp files.
I should try /mnt/home/ in future.

I was able to create an ISO file with pburn though.

D.S. : When I was at school the only digital anything was Morse code! More recently, when I want DAC I buy a little box or chip labelled DAC and look up the wiring diagramme on the InterWeb. Besides which, any electronics I've learnt has been self-taught on-the-hoof, i.e. with big holes.
Arizona is full of old folks like me, isn't it? And crooks trying to to fleece them?! Nice climate - done the Grand Canyon. But, why not just amend your profile? If you're sensitive about your exactly location you could just say N. America, although West Coast, East ditto, or, in your case, Mountain time. It helps threads like this one in particular to know when the discussion will continue.
Apart from that, you'll be wanting BarryK and R.ladder DAC.

In the city there are a lot of older. I live in the middle of nowhere in the desert.

And I am surprised that you did no know of RDAC's, as these have been comon with digital electronics since the 1960's, and the early smaller Mini Computers (smaller, as in it only takes one truck to move it to set up at a new location).

Though I understand the self taught part. I can not say that as I have atended to many uni courses, though I had already self taught myself most of the stuff they repeated at uni.

Sound is doing a lot better, though I have to reconfigure it every time I reboot, or swap OS's and back to Puppy.

5) no nano app



all Quirkies, and pups probably, have 'mp'.


Is there a way to launch mp when typing in console
Code:
nano file.txt


such as a link or wrapper.


mp file.txt

I found a possible error in Quirky Xerus

Procedure:

When right clicking on a music file there is 'Open With' menu item (see below)




When I chose pmusic it assumed the mp3 file was an internet radio station rather than
a music file. Also read my pmusic suggestion for more info

Hmmm, that seems like a pmusic bug. You will need to report that to zigbert.

Ha ha, I am all ready to go with Quirky 8.1 final, but cannot upload it to ibiblio.

I have posted to the forum at ibiblio.org:

https://answers.ibiblio.org/questions/1855/unable-to-login-to-server.html

Years ago, I had a direct email to someone at ibiblio.org, but he left. Now, we all have to go through this forum.

ally reminded me about archive.org, so I have created an account and uploaded Quirky 8.1:

https://archive.org/download/quirky-linux-pi2-sd-8gb-xerus-8.1

Here is the announcement:

https://ia801503.us.archive.org/14/items/quirky-linux-pi2-sd-8gb-xerus-8.1/release-xerus-8.1%2b.htm

Let me know if it downloads OK, before I announce elsewhere (like the Raspberry Pi forum).

Note, the devx pet is not uploaded. There are a few pets that I can't upload to ibiblio.org until uploading is fixed.

Don't use the older 8.0.98 devx, it has a serious bug.
Well, you can, and fix the bug manually after installing. /sbin/getty after installing the devx, is a zero-byte file, need to change it back to a symlink to /bin/busybox.

This is the "front page":

Downloading now, download speed is 384KB/s fairly decent speed for my connection.

@BarryK:
Are you still planning on adding a lite version??

No updated devx yet?

I was waiting to install devx till you gave us an update.

Well I guess I can continue to do my development on RISC OS, probably better that way anyway.

quirky pi2 8.1 mirrored.

download of the devx went wrong for me--nearly seven hundred megs from what was supposed to have been a 30k file (didn't mirror that one).

I just now did a test download:

Code:
# wget http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/armv7/packages/pet_packages-xerus/devx-8.1-xerus.pet



...199MB, downloaded OK, md5sum OK.

Code:
# md5sum devx-8.1-xerus.pet
3bef6c0865250159f942774edc66cd47  devx-8.1-xerus.pet


nluug hasn't yet got it. Usually they sync by now.
