    Re: Where's Grip?

    I have Karmic 64-bit and grip is in my apt repository according to aptitude and according to me as I'm running it now.

    $ grip --version
    GNOME grip 3.3.1

    $ dpkg -l grip
    Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold
    | Status=Not/Inst/Cfg-files/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
    |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
    ||/ Name Version Description
    +++-==============-==============-============================================
    ii grip 3.3.1-16 GNOME-based CD-player/ripper/encoder
    will@moya:~/attachments$


    Anyway, when I tried to rip a CD is said it was doing it but nothing much happened and it finished in under 1 second.

    To make it work I changed the ripper from
    grip(cdparanoia)
    to
    cdparanoia

    and now it's working.

    Not sure if that's what other people experience, but that's my mileage.

    Interesting... do you hapeen to have the jaunty universe repo or a ppa enabled in your sources or maybe a grip package from jaunty in your apt archives. (or it was brought forward, ect.

    Cause it's nowhere to be seen in the ubuntu packages for karmic, lucid

    Re: Where's Grip?

    did not read all the replies but it is there


    http://nostatic.org/grip/

    and apparently no longer available


    but there are better software such as

    ripit

    install with sudo apt-get install ripit

    and run man ripit in the terminal to see the manual really easy to use




    pacpl sudo apt-get install pacpl to install

    and man pacpl for the manual



    cdparanoia is already there again man cdparanoia



    those are a lot of fun and EASY to use

    Re: Where's Grip?

    I upgraded from Jaunty - may be it got left behind on my machine then?

    /etc/apt/sources.list mentions only karmic, no jaunty repos.

    Anything else you'd like me to check?

    Re: Where's Grip?

    NEW:
    I created a ppa to "add" grip back into a repository as a pre-compiled module.
    Please try out this new method of fetching grip, and let me know how it works.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rapido/grip
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install grip
    OLD:
    I compiled grip from sources, which seemed to work just fine.

    To simplify, I have created a shell script to do the work:

    Code:
    wget http://www.shiftingheat.com/packages/ubuntu/karmic_install/grip_install.sh
    sh grip_install.sh
    For completeness, or if you would like to perform one step at a time, here is the code that he shell script contains:

    Code:
    # download grip 3.3.1 source
    wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/grip/grip/3.3.1/grip-3.3.1.tar.gz?use_mirror=superb-dca2
    
    # unpack
    tar -xzvf grip-3.3.1.tar.gz
    cd grip-3.3.1
    
    # get the dependencies
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libgnomeui-dev libvte-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
    
    # build and install
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    
    # install other useful libraries
    sudo apt-get install lame flac vorbis-tools
    Hope this helps others who wish to continue using grip.

    Re: Where's Grip?

    rapido that is impressive

    the program looks old-fashioned but is a cute way to use cdparanoia


    you obviously know your way round


    i posted this on cd ripping related topic

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1394814

    to do with a cd which does not perform through a program like grip



    any pointers for myself or anyone else in the same boat/?


    if you have the time


    and thanx for grip shan

    Re: Where's Grip?

    Rapido that is great. I really wanted to keep Grip - just because I have been using it for years
    However when I first tried it on my LinuxMint8 (Ubuntu9.10 based ) system, it got to 99% and hung - searching: lots of Get, Ign and Hit statements after grip-3.3.1/grip.desktop

    So I followed the step by step process that you usefully included and discovered that it was hanging at apt-get update. This is no doubt because there is some kind of confict between Mint8 and Ubuntu9.10 repos.
    So since mey system was already up to date, I simply skipped this step and continued, It works fine!

    One thing though is I want to encode in ogg but grip complains about missing executable for that (normally called oggenc). What is the official name for that, and/or where can I get it/ what is the path to it?
    I'm sure Ill be fully up and running shortly

    Thanks again

    Ps. I'll have to cross post in mint forums.........

    Spegru,

    You should be able to enable oggenc via the following:
    $ sudo apt-get install vorbis-tools

    I added this to the script above and tested it ( encoded to ogg ). Worked for me.

    As far as the hang at 99% during an apt-get update, I get that all the time. I believe it is independent of Mint8 as it happens on vanilla karmic. That step typically takes a couple of minutes. Not sure exactly why and would prefer to know the "hurry-up" ( if it exists ) for the repos update.
