2017-06-02 07:06:24 -0500 asked a question Show both single-file pictures and lyrics metadata for mp3s

Hello, I have bought an mp3 album in which:

  • Every track has its own picture. They compose sort of a comics book.

image description

  • Every track has its own lyrics included in the metadata.

image description

Is there a way to configure Vlc or Rhytmbox to show both, while playing the tracks? Right now, I just see one picture (the first one) for all the songs (even opening a single file), and I don't seem able to find plugins for these kind of lyrics.

Or should I look for another Fedora software?

2016-12-12 16:43:22 -0500 commented answer Install VirtualBox on Fedora 25 (UEFI Secure Boot & Kernel Modules Signing)

I know: I had edited the question (also adding that reference). The fact is that I cannot complete the signing process, and I'm stuck: "when I get to the rebooting part (after using mokutil --import MOK.der), nothing happens, except for an error during boot suggesting to launch $ systemctl status akmods.service"

And yes, I do have a good reason to choose VirtualBox!

2016-12-10 11:03:45 -0500 commented question Install VirtualBox on Fedora 25 (UEFI Secure Boot & Kernel Modules Signing)

I found out the problem seems due to UEFI Secure Boot... But I'm still not out of it. The post has been updated.

2016-12-10 08:05:39 -0500 asked a question Install VirtualBox on Fedora 25 (UEFI Secure Boot & Kernel Modules Signing)

I have followed these guides to install VirtualBox on Fedora 25, in a system with UEFI Secure Boot:

https://www.if-not-true-then-false.co...

http://gorka.eguileor.com/vbox-vmware...

But when I get to the rebooting part (after using mokutil --import MOK.der), nothing happens, except for an error during boot:

[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
See 'systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service' for details.

If I give that command, this is the output:

Unit systemd-modules-load.service has begun starting up.

In the end, I still can't add the kernel module:

2015-04-07 15:17:16 -0500 commented answer Applications' Audio (again)

I forgot to write it, but you have correctly grasped that my issue probably started while switching between HDMI and speakers... I had discovered pavucontrol while trying to find a solution, but I didn't know about the Volume Mixer Extension: thanks for the tip.

2015-04-07 04:36:21 -0500 answered a question Applications' Audio (again)

Apparently, I've been able to fix it this way:

  • Set "autospawn=no" in ~/.pulse/client.conf permanently (do not remove the file or the line, or set it to "yes", as I did the previous time after it started to work)

  • Add a "pulseaudio.desktop" file in ~/.config/autostart with this content:

[Desktop Entry]

Name=pulseaudio

GenericName=Pulse

Comment=Start this up at login

Exec=/bin/pulseaudio

Terminal=False

Type=Application

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true

2015-04-01 11:11:13 -0500 asked a question Applications' Audio (again)

Hello, I'm having again the same issue addressed here:

https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques...

But this time the workaround I found previously is not helping anymore.

HDMI works fine, but the speakers' audio doesn't.

Could someone help me? Thanks

2015-03-30 07:51:44 -0500 commented answer What is causing this build error when building pike from an rpm?

Thanks a lot for looking at the SPEC!

This is the part of install.pike about Getopt: http://pastebin.com/yttMV7WE

But I guess it's too little information, and since I'm not a Pike developer, I should just ask them.

(Btw, I have the util-linux package, containing getop, correctly installed)

2015-03-29 08:50:13 -0500 asked a question What is causing this build error when building pike from an rpm?

Hello, I'm trying to "rpm-build -ba" a package (Pike) for Fedora 21, but I keep getting this error when the installation (%install of the SPEC file) starts:

"Bad exit status from
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.hI2V3W (%install)"

More precisely, as far as I can see, things start going badly after:

"Installing Pike in
/~/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/pike7.8-7.8.866-1.0.fc21.x86_64/usr,
please wait...

Could not resolve Getopt. (Perhaps the
installed pike tree has been moved.)
lib/master.pike:3406:
master()->main_resolv("Getopt",UNDEFINED)"

Here the SPEC file: http://pastebin.com/BFeNgL8g

I know there are RPMs for previous editions of Pike, but I'm doing a packaging for a school project (and hopefully learn something about packaging in general along the way).

Ideas? Thanks!

2015-03-27 06:55:35 -0500 answered a question Fedora 21, Applications' Audio

Nevermind... Fixed it.

I disabled the respawn (create ~/.pulse/client.conf and add "autospawn = no"), killed the process, logged out-in, re-enabled autospawn and then logged out-it one more time.

2015-03-27 06:30:06 -0500 asked a question Fedora 21, Applications' Audio

Hello, Starting from yesterday, I can't hear anymore sounds from any application (while I can testing the speakers), and I don't remember doing anything that could have caused the problem (also checking with sudo yum history).

Below I have attached the first lines of output from alsa-info.sh --no-upload

I have already tried killing and restarting pulseaudio, removing temp files (sudo rm -rf /tmp/pulse-*) and even "yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio" with a system reboot. The volume, checked from alsamixer, is fine. Any other ideas? Thank you.
