    On which Linux platform the dbPoweramp CD ripper has been approved?

    On http://www.dbpoweramp.com/cd-ripper.htm one can read:

    "Compatibility: ... Linux supported through Wine."

    So it was tested and approved by Illustrate on at least one Linux platform resp. Linux distribution. Which one?

    Ubunutu, Debian are the main ones.

    Thanks for your fast answer.

    But could you please be more specific. What version of Ubuntu or Debian? Which version of Wine was used? Which "CD-ROM Communication" was selected in dBpoweramp?

    I tried really hard to get the dBpoweramp CD Ripper R14.2 (=CDGrab.exe) work under Linux. I tried Fedora 16/64 (Wine 1.3.35) with no success, the CD drive won't be recognized at all ("No CD Drive found").

    After your posting I tried Xubuntu 10.04/32 (Wine 1.2.2) and had only partial success. This is what I've done:

    1. Install Xubuntu 10.04/32
    2. Install Wine (apt-get install wine)
    3. Insert a data CD (This is a tip I have read in this forum.)
    4. Configure Wine (winecfg), auto detect drives
    5. Start the CD ripper (wine C:/.../CDGrab.exe)
    6. Eject the Data CD
    7. Insert an Audio CD
    8. Try to rip the Audio CD


    While the drive is recognized here (but only if a Data CD is inserted when starting the CD ripper) I'm not able to rip any audio CD. I tried the Communication settings "SCSI Pass Through (SPT)", "ASPI", "SCSI Pass Through Read (DB)", no change. This is the error message I get:
    Code:
    Error ripping to FLAC, 'Track 1' to 'C:\users\user\Eigene Musik\JJ72\JJ72\JJ72 - 01 - October Swimmer.flac'
       Unable to read CD, check CD disc (frame LBA 0  ripping 26 frames   track end LBA 15212)  [clRipperBurst::Rip]
    (I also tried Version R13.5 with the same result.)

    To make this long posting short: Could you please give me an more exact answer to my question so I can try it again with a version of Debian or Ubuntu (and Wine) you have tested successfully? This would be very kind.

    The option in CD ripper is not important (has to be default SCSI Passthrough), the important bit is setting Wine so the drives are passed as SCSI rather emulated, I forget now where the option is, perhaps search this forum for 'Wine'

    While searching this forum for "wine scsi" I have only found some postings of yours which suggests the same thing, but I did not get any idea where this setting of Wine could be found. It's not accessible using "Wine Configuration" resp. "winecfg". Furthermore I have searched the Internet about such setting, but with no result. Could you please help me with this?

    Furthermore I tried Xubuntu 10.04 with Wine 1.3.35 and Debian 6.0 ("Squeeze") with Wine 1.0.1. And I tried both of them on a different computer, too, but all my attempts have lead to the same result: I can make the CD drive visible to the CD Ripper with some tricks I have found on this forum, and the CD Ripper is able to identify the Audio CD correctly, but is not able to rip a single track.

    (I have tried all tricks I have found in this forum, too, no matter how pointless they seem, e.g. setting Wine to "Windows NT 4.0", do an entry in /etc/fstab for the CD drive etc.)

    This leads me to my original question: On which Linux platform the dBpoweramp CD Ripper R14.2 has been approved? Please give me a specific Linux distribution, a specific version of it, and a specific version of Wine where the CD Ripper should work. If I install exactly the same distribution and versions, I have a platform to start with investigating.

    But without this information I can only continue with try-and-error attempts, which is very time consuming and frustrating.

    in this new thread, two different users happen to support all the details of their setups with linux and wine and all works. see the details here:

    I know this thread, but unfortunately some details may be missing. For example one user uses Ubuntu 10.04 and Wine 1.3.x - I tried this combination (on two different computers), too, but failed. So maybe there is some extra setup needed to get this combination work? For example what about the SCSI setting Spoon is talking about?

    What I'm missing is a detailed description on how a user got the CD Ripper working with his version of Linux and Wine, so other user like me can benefit from that. (If I get it to work successfully, I would be glad to do such description, and if other users would do, too, we could build up some kind of database for making dBpoweramp working with Linux.)

    Re: On which Linux platform the dbPoweramp CD ripper has been approved?

    I just tried installing Ubuntu 10.04 instead of Xubuntu 10.04, just to see if this makes any difference. Unfortunately it does not, I'm still not able to rip tracks.

    Spoon, I begin to wonder why it's such a secret on which Linux platform dbPoweramp R14.2 has been approved. "Compatibility: ... Linux supported through Wine.", so you (or one of your testers) must have tried it at least with one Linux distribution. Which one, which version, and which version of Wine, the one from the default repositories (which is for example 1.0 on Debian and 1.2 on Ubuntu), or the one from the winehq.com repositories (means: 1.2 or 1.3)?

    And how do I setup "setting Wine so the drives are passed as SCSI rather emulated"?

    I would like to second this as I have been unable to get working on Ubuntu 12.04LTS and 13.04. I can use workaround to get CD drive recognised but I cannot get any album art at all.
    Linux users beware I guess. The statement over compatibility should be withdrawn or reworded to make it clear under what criteria DB works. If I am unable to get full functionality do I get discount/refund?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    We removed the statement about compatibility with Wine many months ago.

    I used this tread to set p Ripper under Mint 15 ( Ubuntu 13.04 ) and wine 1.4.1 I do get the cover and full metadata, no problem. Secure rip method works as well. Sometimes wine loses cd configuration, just go to wine config and do the drive autodetect (assuming that you added cdrom to /etc/fstab)

    Thanks that is obviously the right thing to do. However it certainly was there when I purchased initially and when I upgraded to multi-user. The question still remains on what criteria was your initial statement based on then perhaps I could get the software I have bought working properly or you could offer me a refund perhaps? Incidentally I was wrong earlier the CDS are not even being ripped adequately let alone the album art.
    Kind Regards,
    Paul

    A bit more.
    This is your response on another thread concerning Linux compatability issue in late August. The WINE statement was certainly there then, although as you say the testing was done 'many years ago' so I guess any criteria would be pointless now.
    I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to get this to work. I am happy to negotiate on refund but I certainly feel I should have the multi user element refunded as I cannot use this software outside of my Vitual windows enviroment so it is useless on my additional Linux pc and laptop.
    Kind Regards,
    Paul


    'Re: CD Ripper & WINE: Audio CDs not detected

    It was tested many years ago with Linux...and it worked 100%

    the trouble is, there are many different types of linux, if an earlier version works (on disc detection) but a later one does not, then that suggests it is the linux that has the problem, not only would dbpoweramp be affected, but every CD ripper running through wine.'

    Thanks. However does not resolve for me. But it has helped me set up EAC which does work fine and gets metadata which is quite peverse!
    I really do not have/am not prepared to devote any more hours to this.
    Grateful if you would consider refund for extended registeration. Windows is working fine.
    KInd Regards,
    Paul
