I've just installed Rubyripper with Ubuntu 9.04 (because I couldn't handle with parametering bitrate in Sound Juicer).
It looks like good but I would have three more questions :
1) how do you parameter the bitrate for MP3 (the test with VLC I did renders me a file at 128 kb/s and in Nautilus it's 51 kbps !!!) Personnaly, I would like to rip at 160 kbps.
2) what is "cuesheet" and is it important ?
3) is it important to parameter "Cdrom offset" because I didn't find how to.
I'm very sorry for my poor english I hope you can manage with it (you know I'm french !!!).
Thanks for your answers...
I was able to follow your instructions the 2nd time I tried--
My first go did not work, but the 2nd time I used the CLI(terminal) command to 'extract here.' For some reason, it worked where the GUI command did not.
As a side benefit, I finally found out that, while Control C copies in the GUI environment, I need to use [Shift][Insert] to paste text into the terminal command line.
Good work, and thanks again!
Is there a way to have RubyRipper rip a CD as soon as you put it in the drive?
Pretty simple, a couple of ways.Is there a way to have RubyRipper rip a CD as soon as you put it in the drive?
You can have it run silently in the background or in a visible terminal
I prefer in the background but there are some limitations there.
Versions 0.5.6 and 0.5.7 have a bug that makes it not possible due to having the -a command not work as intended, this has been fixed in the git and should be in the next release. (0.5.5 works fine with -a
The other limitation is if the same output folder exists, that usually requires user interaction which causes the silent to fail.
( possibly there is a command line option for options 1 or 2, documentation is hard to find on rrip_cli (anyone ..?...........
Tracks to rip are 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
The output directory already exists. What would you like to do?
1) Auto rename the output directory
2) Overwrite the existing directory
3) Cancel the rip and eject the disc
Please enter the number of your choice: 
Basically set your preferences as desired in the gui and then use a small script as a auto run choice or default for audio cd's.
Edit: this may be a better command depending on rr version (the very latest uses -d, .deb below uses the -aCode:#!/bin/bash rrip_cli -a
for visible (again the deb below uses -a, latest git uses -d
I use a ~/bin so put script in there, the home folder would do. Then just put in an audio cd, hold down the shift button and in the pop up dropdown choose 'open with other application' and browse to your script ( on hardy you need another method to add to default /autorun choicesCode:#!/bin/bash gnome-terminal -e "rrip_cli -a"
It's possible that you could enter the command directly, I prefer to use and point to a script
here's a 0.6 beta that would be suitable for silent/background auto rips
This is a beta but should be fine
(r, click save link as is best way to dl
The gtk gui is currently broken in lucid, works fine from cli ( you can set it up in the gui, then use the cli to rip & encode
Edit: the gui now works in lucid though it does seem to take much longer to create the md5 and start next trackthan in karmic and earlier - from the cli no such delay
Note that if you happened to want to use this beta version and had previously installed from the above ppa - remove the ppa's rubyripper-gtk package first. The ppa split the cli (rubyripper) and gui (rubyripper-gtk) into 2 separate .deb's. The below beta includes both
Last edited by mc4man; April 26th, 2010 at 03:06 PM. Reason: don't mix ppa gtk .deb and beta 0.6b.2 deb - broken gui in lucid:: gui now works in lucid, though much slower
This is about set-up. Need help.
That's the default CD tray of the notebook. However I am using an external CD-DVD connected to a USB. Rubyripper does not detect it and I don't know how to enter it manually. Ubuntu auto-mounts the drive but whatever I enter in the rubyripper options, that does not work.Code:/dev/cdrom
A little help welcome
It may be /dev/cdrom1 or /dev/cdrom2, ect.I don't know how to enter it manually
with the usb drive connected run this and find out or just trial & error
Code:sudo lshw -C disk
did not work, the only thing that did was
BTW, I have installed the PPA link above and I don't have an icon in the applications nor a GUI (ALT + F2 rubyripper), only the cli (rrip_cli) how do you get the full GUI?Code:/dev/sr1
Rubyripper installed great for me, however it seems to be unable to process foreign language characters. Specifically I am ripping some of my Russian CD's and the information looks like this:
Artist = Áàñòà
Album = Áàñòà 1
Year = 2006
Genre = Hip-Hop
Tracks = 19
01 - Ðàç è íàâñåãäà
02 - Òàê ïëà÷åò âåñíà
Is that a known issue, or should I open a bug on it? The info in the CDDB database is correct. Looks like Rubyripper has problems with the text returned.
