    HowTO : www.raaga.com with (k)ubuntu

    Hi,
    After months of windowing just to listen to songs from raaga.com, I finally got a Linux alternative. Though it is not a native Linux one, but works never the less.
    OK It is not an orignal idea by me, but a borrowed/stolen one. But being a nice thief ( Robinhood), I belive in sharing that idea with all.
    Here it goes ::

    Some sites like www.raaga.com do not work in spite of having the latest real player and the corresponding firefox plugins, even mplayer plugins do not work. I've tried my best, but there seems to be no way of getting them to work, so I had to use a workaround. Do this only if there are some sites which do not work, otherwise you should be all set.

    * Download and install wine. I am using the latest wine using
    deb http://wine.sourceforge.net/apt/ binary/

    * Run #wine. It will create default directories, etc.
    * Copy this file as your wine config file, i.e. save it as ~/.wine/config
    * Download the windows installer of firefox and install it by opening it with wine. Start it using wine (You may have to give a command like # wine /home/abhaysahai/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Mozilla\ Firefox/firefox.exe , and install realplayer (windows version) from www.real.com through it. (At the end of installation, real player hangs, but after restarting ( or kill the process associated with real player-- dont know kill, restart) , everything works ok for me).
    * Now this installation of firefox should be able to play all sorts of internet radios, etc. (At least, it plays raaga.com and smashits.com for me!)
    * If you find a better solution, Please do let me know!

    Want the orignal link -- yes it has more, actually much more info

    http://www.cs.cornell.edu/~scs49/ins...#destHeader164

    And yes even the sites like hsbc.co.in works with this trick.
    How was my version ( did u say coppied or lifted version ?? )

    Abhay
    Fiesty all the way

    Re: HowTO : www.raaga.com with (k)ubuntu

    Hi,
    nice work around. But doesnt it hog memory? and it involves installing FF twice. I used to get it done before, but now I keep getting this "Error: Methods not found" error for raaga and musicindiaonline.com, for both Opera and FF inspite of having mplayer, Realplayer and respectve plugins.

    thanks,
    Pavan

    Re: HowTO : www.raaga.com with (k)ubuntu

    The issue here is with firefox.
    I had success with raaga and other websites.

    I have downgrade firefox to 1.0.5 and realplayer to 10.0.1.450.

    Now every thing is working fine.
    Did this work for you.

    Hi,
    My first post, and may be off topic.
    After months of search, found http://www.hindisongs.net
    Song plays well in embedded player on my Kubuntu box without any problem.
    I have realplayer 10 installed, which I think is required.

    Re: HowTO : www.raaga.com with (k)ubuntu

    Hi,

    Finally, I can listen to raaga.com using Firefox 1.5 on a Dapper Drake box WITHOUT using Wine. Thanks to the same webpage mentioned earlier in the thread, http://www.cs.cornell.edu/~scs49/install_linux.html
    Although the instructions in that webpage is for Redhat, it works fine on Ubunto too.

    This is what I did:
    1- Downloaded the realplayer rpm mentioned in the above webpage. That realplayer package is built with gcc 3.4, which apparently makes the difference.
    2- Installed "rpm" package (using Synaptic),
    3- Issued the following commands:

    tar -jxvf RealPlayer-10.0.3-rc1-rhel4.src.rpm.tar.bz2
    rpm -ivh RealPlayer-10.0.3-rc1-rhel4.src.rpm
    mkdir realplayer
    cd realplayer
    tar -jxvf /usr/src/rpm/SOURCES/install.bz2

    (I tried using alien, but it did not work).

    4- Made a symlink: "ln -s realplayer/realplay /usr/bin/realplay" so that realplay is in the system path.

    5- Copied the new plugin files nphelix.so and nphelix.xpt (which are now in realplayer folder) to ~/.mozilla/plugins.

    5- Restart the firefox.

    Hope this helps!

    Exclamation Re: HowTO : www.raaga.com with (k)ubuntu


    OK FOLKS I MANAGED TO GET IT WORKING WITHOUT WINE OR DUPLICATES OR ADDITIONAL RESOURCES/FILE SPACES TAKEN UP...HERE IS HOW!!!!


    1) Please uninstall any exisiting RealPlayer you have installed in your system
    2)Print out this article as we need to close/exit your firefox while we install and configure.....

    So lets start....

    1) Uninstalled real player? Yes? Proceed to next step......

    2) Closed Firefox? yes? Proceed to next step......

    We need to ensure we have the basic codecs,,,
    So open up your terminal/console and type....

    3) sudo apt-get install alsa-oss

    No Problem?? Good Proceed To Step 4.....

    4) Go to http://www.real.com/linux and download the installer to your Desktop. It shoud be a .bin file (eg RealPlayer10GOLD.bin)


    Open the terminal and navigate to the file "RealPlayer10GOLD.bin". Type

    5) $ cd ~/Desktop

    Verify that the file is executable. If it isn't, type

    6) $ chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

    Run the installer by typing

    7) $ sudo ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

    Follow the prompts provided to finish installation.

    ** Note while Installing RealPlayer ...Take Note of your installation directory. I Installed into my home directory and maybe you could try installing to your home directory rather than to its default desktop.

    8) Finally, go to your installed directory. For example, if you installed to /home/XXX/RealPlayer , (Where XXX is the name of your directory) then from your terminal type

    sudo gedit /home/XXX/RealPlayer/realplay

    and changed line 73 from

    $REALPLAYBIN “$@”

    to

    aoss $REALPLAYBIN “$@”


    Save and exit....

    Now launch Firefox, go to Raaga.Com and Enjoy your top 10!!

    Cheers All!!!
