Hi :)
Rhythmbox is supposed to be quite good.  I like Brasero too but i
think that is slightly different.  Brasero might let you make an iso
file on your hard-drive so that you have a back-up copy of the Cd/Dvd
and can play it as though it really is a Cd/Dvd.  The ultra latest
stuff tends to have some security to try to prevent it but their
security usually fails even without actually 'hacking' it (they mean

Continuing to assume these are Cd/Dvds that you own, have you tried
just playing them?  If you put the Cd/Dvd in and just double-slick on
it it should start just playing.  That pulls it into Rhythmbox (or
whatever) and that will probably let you copy or move the track to
another place, like your music folder.  

All this ripping and stuff sounds quite tiring and complicated.
Drag&drop or copy&paste might be easier.  I haven't read these links
but they look like reputable sources.  My fav is the 2nd link (i
actually did manage to read 'all the way through' that one)

Notice that Ubuntu has a lot of the same "support forums" that
LibreOffice has.  We have an AskLO and the proper forums are about to
go live any month now.  

We don't generally have much documentation on the official TDF or
LibreOffice websites (like this at the Rhythmbox site although there is
an Faq on 'ours'.  We tend to use a Wiki instead because it's easier
to update and more people updating it or rewording it helps capture
inspiration even from non-English speakers and then "smooth things
out" into better English later.   

There is another general Gnu&Linux forum at

It is off-topic for this emailing list but heck, why not just ask!
No harm done :)  We could probably help with soem Windows or Mac or
Android issues too tbh because when you start using Gnu&Linux you
learn a lot about other systems quite fast even if it's just from
other people showing off and trying to tell you why their system is
better (even tho it isn't, they all have pros and cons) Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] OT : good cd import software on linux

Hi all,

This is waaaaay of topic, but as there are many linux adepts over
here, I wonder what software you use to rip cd's to mp3. (or ogg
vorbis, but I prefer mp3 as that's supported on more hardware than

On windows, I used to use iTunes, which recognised (through cddb, or
whatever sony made it now) nearly all cd's, also the less common like
folk music (Bal O'Gadjo, Embrun,...) On ubuntu, those cd's are rarely

The final goal is to rate the songs with stars (or another symbol)
like in Itunes, and then be able to export a best-of to my collection
to my cell phone, tablet and/or usb-stick.

Are there some packages I should install to have those cd's
recognised, or what should I do?
