Hello,

I am in the process of completely switching over from Windows to Ubuntu. I'm looking for a program that automatically names my CDs when inserted and ID3 tags them when ripped, like Windows Media Player.

Any suggestions???
Thanks!

I have always found grip to give me exellent results in both ripping quality and free-cddb naming and tagging of disks and songs.

I like abcde. It's quick and easy.

Thanks guys! abcde seems pretty cool. But is there a way I can change the text editor from nano to gedit when I have to edit CDDB info??

Try adding this to your .abcde.conf file:

EDITOR=/usr/bin/gedit

Nope. That didn't work. I think I still like it though. Just not too fond of Nano lol.

I'm gonna look for some more documentation on the program, but it looks really promising. Thanks again!

I made a guess as to where gedit might be since I don't have it, so it may be located elsewhere for you, or maybe it's not even named gedit:

whereis gedit
Maybe it needs single quotes:

EDITOR='/usr/bin/gedit'

Hi Tom:

Glad you liked the guide :-). abcde reads the $EDITOR variable and I believe that this is the easiest way to change to gedit. To alter this you could try:


$ gedit $HOME/.bashrc

and then add the following:


EDITOR=/usr/bin/gedit && export EDITOR

I tried this on my own system, where normally I use vim, and it worked well enough.

Just as a quick side note, with grip you do all of this from the GUI. In the panel under config -> Encoding you can set all the tag information.

Good luck !
