MP3 player - Rhythmbox
I currently use backtrack 4 pre final as my primary operating system at work. I have been attempting to load an mp3 player into backtrack for the past few days via the install manager, as well as through the terminal.
All of my music is located on a primary FAT32 partition on my hard drive, and would like to be able to play music locally from there.
Within ubuntu, the only application which i can play music located off of a seperate partition other than root is rhythmbox.
After attempting to install rhythmbox into backtrack, i seem to get some errors when downloading "gstreamer10.0-plugins-good" file. There are many other applications which i have downloaded via terminal with no issues.
I also attempted to download the application via the web and try using a make command, but this doesn't seem to work either..
Do you guys know how i would go about getting this file, or getting rhythmbox to work? Or maybe a different application which will be suitable of my needs?
any input is appeciated!
Good friend of the forums
try vlc it's a good player.
Audacious, xmms and amarok works goo too ! try
thanks for the replies guys, i attempted to load all of the players in which you advised. However, it seems that none of them worked They will all load fine and execute from the hard drive, but when try to load my music folder located on a separate partition, i get this error:
Unable to mount the volume 'SHARED'
Cannot obtain lock on /media/.hal-mtab
The partition is mounted ? Manually ?
It's maybe a permission problem...
Doesn't sound like the partition isn't mounted to me.
the partition in which i am trying to load the files off is a primary FAT32 file system created by gparted. All of my other operating systems have no problem mounting it, which is kind of strange. Do you guys think it could be because i manually installed backtrack via CLI (the ubiquity never worked for some reason..)?
This problem has been covered extensively in the newbie section as well as the bugs and fix section for BT4
