Quick geektastic post. Under Ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx I can’t play audio CDs. When I put them into the drive, an error pops up every few seconds saying:
Unable to mount Audio Disc
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
Eventually I stumbled upon this bug and found a solution. I open Nautilus, Edit > Preferences > Media > Never prompt or start programs on media insertion. Bingo, now I can insert a CD and it will play. I don’t think it’ll work in Rhythmbox because that’s so tightly integrated with Gnome, but I was able to play the CD in VLC and presumably I’d be able to rip it in something equally unconnected to Gnome.
Glorious, now I can rip some of my 6 year old CDs I just found. Happy days. 🙂
Here’s a random picture from flickr for the non techy readers to enjoy…
