I have just installed PCLOS XFCE 2010.07 on an old Compaq deskpro PIII 600 with 512 Mb Ram.
It works beautifully so far except...I can't play audio cds.
When I insert a cd, the cd drive spins and the hard drive light flashes but nothing happens.
In the main menu I have Listen music player and Mixer. If I open Listen it appears not to be a CD player, just an audio file player. (?) I can't see any option to play CD.
In XFCE 4 settings manager under "removable drives and media" > "multimedia" under Audio Cd the option "play audio cd when inserted" is selected, under that is "command" and a box, in the box it says "totem %d".
In synaptic it appears totem is not installed.
1. I imagine this would be fixed by installing an audio CD player via synaptic, setting the audio cd setting to auto play the cd with whatever player I install. Is this right? any suggestions for an audio cd player that works well with xfce (& won't drag in heaps of Gnome or KDE stuff when installed) ?
2. Is this a "bug" or weakness with PCLOS XFCE 2010.07? It is a default install (I haven't tweaked anything) but it defaults to play audio cd's (and video cds and dvds) with a player which isn't included on the install CD? If so, should I report it somewhere?
