correct the plextor is problematic always giving "disk error" (even if the 2nd drive is empty)

could you add a selector for drive selection?

re: speed gnormalize has cdparanoia enable and yet still feels faster. I would always use it but shouldn't it be configurable?

Though I don't adjust frequency it seems to be an option available in other rippers

Audex

Utilities by marcomaniac 232 comments

I have 2 dvd/cd drives, the plextor (sata PX-755a) is problematic. The device manager sees the new cd and when I select the option of audex to extract, audex opens but it gives me "device error' but gnormalize has no issues seeing or ripping from the drive.

Ripping speed:
I'm seeing just under 6x for ripping and 26 -> 30x for encoding, this seems slow vrs what gnormalize rips at.
The cd reader is 48x (ata lite-on sohw-1693), shouldn't my ripping speed be higher?


thanks, really like the cover's being added to the tag

me thinks it's looking for g++ which should be /usr/bin/g++ BUT I'm guessing there's no g++ there though there might be a /usr/bin/g++-4.3, assuming the compiler rpm was installed.

PlayWolf

Plasma 4 Extensions by giucam 323 comments

I think was because I didn't like the font sizes being selected when 'resize fonts' was selected and that max size would give me some control. Using the scroll options alleviates this but then I'd like to be able to still the fonts used when scrolled (I think it's a kde thing, if it can be imagined you should be able to customize it)

As I use the plasmoid more the only change that I think is really needed is that the progress bar width appears fixed and and when narrow sized it takes too much of the available space. - Jan 16 2009
PlayWolf

Plasma 4 Extensions by giucam 323 comments

re: default ratio as long as it's changeable (I didn't know about holding ctrl - now only if I remember it) the default is arbitrary and the developer's choice

other suggestions:
- not sure about the need for % in progress bar, you could put the played/total time there instead
-add max font
-add font color
-add font selector
-option to keep the controls small, instead of expanding with the plasmoid (maybe 2nd set of long and narrow)

Anyhow I think it's a good reinterpretation of Kirocker and thank you for your work - Jan 16 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by giucam 323 comments

2 suggestions/requests

1) the progress bar vertical size is constant no matter the size of the desktop plasmoid, can it be narrowed as are the other parts when resized?

2) the size seems to be set at a fixed 1:1 ratio can there be selected ratios or the plasmoid ratio set as it is resized?

maybe dumb question but why is there no "unmount" or "safely remove" option? Is this because of how Linux hanldles this kind of media (ie - there is no buffering, everything is written immeadiatly so just removing it will not cause any data loss). - Oct 19 2008

Extract And Compress KDE4

Dolphin Service Menus by painkiller101 174 comments

when I used ark/kde4 to extract it from within Konqueror/kde4 there were no "scripts" directory created everything went into the same dir (no subs!).

using extract from Dolphin extracted it fine.

I did notice though that your service menu overwrote Dolphin's - I assume that's because theres only on set for all of kde4

KDE4-servicemenus

Dolphin Service Menus by cbouveyron 7 comments

I think you should add an additional line to include servicemenus installed in ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus as not all sm's may be installed globally

Also wouldn't installing them in /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus make them globally accessable? Or would there be an issue/conflict with kde3 and kde4 sm's?
