    Get away from Windows BUT

    I cannot get CBT Nuggets to play on Ubuntu 10.10

    Some will respond ..use a virtual machine or Wine (which I could never get working for the life of me.)I do not want to use a virtual machine and install Windows on it, that would defeat the purpose of having Ubuntu. I'm trying to drop Windows period.

    I have looked up previous posts on here and followed the instructions and CBT Nuggets is still not able to play on my box. Someone please help.

    Also, what is the best program to use for ipod sync other than gtkpod?

    Everything else is working like a charm but I would really like to get CBT Nuggets to play.

    Thank you in advance.

    Welcome!

    I couldn't get any info about CBT nuggets, as far as I can see it is some sort of a "player" ... please be more elaborate on it, maybe some links?

    For the iPod thing, check out Clementine Music Player, I find it great!

    I added and installed the w32codecs and installed SMPlayer and it works but it seems intermittent. I tried it on Linux Mint and it works right after the install without adding additional codecs.

    As for playing music and syncing my ipod I really like Banshee now and got rid of clementine.

    I have made the full switch to Ubuntu 11.04 on my desktop after the slowness and another virus issue on my desktop, ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop and Lubuntu 11.04 on a older laptop.

    I do have a question though, how do I redirect /home/username/Videos to my external drive?

    I figured it out. Everything is setup and I'm good to go.

    Quite happy with the performance of my desktop now.
