Version 0.5 running in BoxPup 4.1.3 and it's working tip-top fine.

Only possible negatives I can see that might be fixed:
(a) The window size that appears isn't big enough to display all of the contents of the CD.

(b) When I drag the bottom right-hand corner to make the window bigger, it doesn't drag smoothly...
Instead it jumps in and out varying in size with the cursor only somewhere in the vicinity of the corner and quite far from it.

Love the simplicity. Very Happy

Using pCD right now. WOOHOOO! Very Happy

Just had a thought.
Would it be possible to make the highlighting of the track move to the track that is currently playing?
So that when you look at the display you see confirmation of the track now playing.

Oops, just noticed the name of the track currently playing is displayed above.
But the highlighting is noticed more [grabs the attention], so both would be good.
Especially if it said..."Track now playing" or some such.
Or would that reduce the beautiful simplicity?

Sorry, - not possible as afar as I know.

See...cat: usr/local/bin/defaultmediaplayer: no such file...

Might installing pCD have caused this?

By-the-way...
I notice that I can uninstall all versions of pCD [to reinstall with the updated version], BUT NOT pCD version 0.3 Sad

PostPosted: Mon 25 May 2009, 15:48    Post subject: Brief negative experience - Feedback  

I installed the latest version of pCD yesterday and it didn't work.

I launched from the command line and got the error msg others reported about not reading a disk. The program window just sat there with a msg reading the disk...

I am running Dingo.

The motivation for trying pCD was because of problems running a music CD with the other media player programs I had installed (VLC and gxine).

I had installed pmusic just prior to pCD and that one just crashed after displaying the contents of the CD.

I managed to change a setting in alsamixer, after which VLC worked if I rebooted and used it before trying any other media player program.

If I tried pCD or pmusic first, then tried to launch VLC, I got only mysterious chords instead of the actual words and music of the CD.

I was assisted in fixing the problem with gxine (wouldn't launch at all) by Beem (another thread with title gxine won't launch) and today, I have been able to play the CD without problems in both VLC and gxine. (playing fine in VLC after playing in gxine first).

I had removed both pCD and pmusic yesterday and VLC was still acting up (before fixing gxine today).

Hope that is useful.

Steve

Ok,

Something curious is going on here. pCD-0.6 is playing discs just fine, but there is some error it seems where in stead of track 1 being displayed as playing, track 11 is, where track 1 is actually playing, track 2 shows 12 and so on.

This did not happen in previous versions.

Sigmund, it would be helpful if PCD started by setting the CD reader speed to 1x or 2x (e.g.hdparm -E2 /dev/sdx). Faster produces nothing but more noise.

Otherwise, thank you! Puppy has missed a simple, dedicated CD player until now. Well done.

Sigmund,

I'm on my old box, the Dino, and things are looking quite good except for 1 thing.

Using pCD-0.7 playing the burnt disc I outlined in Pburn thread (Albert Collins, Robert Cray, Johnny Copeland, ..."Showdown!") the tracklist did not show Crying or Very sad , but that is the only bad.

I clicked "Rip CD" from the pCD gui and up came a dialog "Would you like to rip another disc?"...not quite right .. but good enough for me at the time so I went on...

The gui for Pcdripper appeared and I proceeded to enter my save directory and preferred format (on a n NTFS drive and mp3) and everything went without a hitch. It took 1 hour 15 minutes to completely rip the CD and now I am here posting while the ripped tracks play in Pmusic... with progress bar, and before I started Seamonkey to post, I swapped some tracks up and down to see if that worked ok on this old Dino.. and it did!

I am using spup from BK's woof with Seamonkey 2 Beta.... and it still works, I did have some stutter, but only when Seamonkey was loading. Seamonkey is a little slow ATM, but Pmusic is humming along quite well.

Even taking a screeny right now! ( a little stutter) Laughing

Mick
pCD could fail to read cddb information if disc is not 100%. The good part is that pcdripper made it...... While pCD uses icedax to connect to cddb, pcdripper uses cddb_query.

You are really working on your dino Cool
Sigmund

Yes Sigmund... that's good... (not sarcastic Smile )

In Upup now.. on the Dino... running Seamonkey (posting this Wink )... ripping disc ... ver "pCD-0.7".. and ... still nothing shows in pCD... yes it shows in "pcdripper"... I know I'm pushing things, but, the CD is playing perfectly with absolutely no stutter (while everything else is running) .. . I'm using about a 5 year old disc.. "Judas Priest".... "Rocka Rolla", remaster.

Is "icedax" worth it?

Yes Laughing , working on the Dino!

Cheers
