I'm still using good OLD Xmms for CD's and most all other music files. Working on new OpenBox after adding xmms-cdread and setting preferences - then play location /dev/cdrom1 (for me).
I used Synaptic to install Xmms & xmms-cdread
Opened xmms & clicked on the "O" on the left of what appears to be a skin representing sound system
Up popped a menue, the first item of which is "Preferences"- clicked on that
A list of Audio I/O pluggins is presented, I chose "CD Audio player 1.2.10"- pushed the "Configure" button
A dialogue popped up listing the following: "device= /dev/cdrom" & "directory= /mnt/cdrom"-- clicked a couple items that seemed appropriate: "play mode= digital" (also tried analog) and Volume control= CD-Rom drive"
Then clicked on "Check drive"--- received the following response:
Device /dev/cdrom OK
Disk has 12 tacks-
Total length= 65:58
Digital Audio Extraction test: OK
Failed to check directory /mnt/cdrom
Error: No such file or directory <CLOSE>
Not sure if I originally typed "/mnt/cdrom" or not-- but don't think so
It appears that the CDrom is recognized-- now just need to know what to put in there (& any other advice I might need to get Xmms running
Your help would be appreciated
