    Play app

    I typed on the Command line of terminal: sudo apt-get install play. The loading process started and then stopped saying it could not find play.
    I am using Ubuntu 12.10 with all the updates installed. I wanted to use play to play music from the Terminal. How do I secure this app. What repository do I download?
    The terminal gave me the actual command line so I was confused as to why it didn't work.

    Re: Play app

    Thank you for the assistance. I entered that at the command line and I am now able to use play. Unfortunately, it only seems to work with ogg. I have tried it with mp3 and m4a and it tells me that it won't work with those file extenders. But, it works great for ogg music files.

    If you install libsox-fmt-mp3 it should work.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libsox-fmt-mp3
    Edit: Or you could use mplayer in CLI too.

    Re: Play app

    I entered the command line you suggested to secure the mp3 but after it read the package list said that the value 'mp3' is invalid for APT:efault - Release as such a release is not
    available in the sources.


    Any more Ideas?

    Thank you again for your assistance!

    Try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libsox-fmt-mp3
    If there are errors please copy and paste all the terminal output here.

    aplay or mocp (sudo apt-get install moc). I'm not familiar with play.

    D'Oh! Yes, sox contains the program play.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sox

    Re: Play app

    To copy and paste in the terminal you need to use CTRL+SHIFT+c and CTRL+SHIFT+v.

    CTRL+c in the terminal means cancel.

    The usual method to copy and paste in the terminal is highlight for copy and middle-click for paste.
