Since install of LinuxMint17, the use of Sound Juicer has been an overall, total failure. I've installed/uninstalled 3 or 4 times. When I 'reinstall", S.J. works fine for a bit, then gets buggy and ultimately crashes. Tried to use VLC, but it only wants to rip a song at-a-time (not entire CD). haven't messed with Brasero. #1. Can Sound Juicer be fixed? #2. How can I access Ubuntu Software Center? The reason being: I want to have options for other CD/DVD player/rippers, install "resticted extras" and have access to other programs not available by LM17 Softmare Mgr.
[HP2000-210 LinuxMint17 cinnamon 64bit]
I certainly hope I don't have to enter the "rant" forum!
Thanx for replying. OK, I did what you said but did so in this way: delightlylinux.wordpress.com/how-to-install-unbuntu-software-center-in-linux-mnt-17/. After doing so, when I open U.S.C. it comes up, then almost immediately vanishes???? Can you give me the "fix" for it? BTW, I like to use copy/paste from the keyboard and am not able to do so w/ LM17. What's going on? Three problems all at once where it had been operating good for 2 1/2 weeks.
The wiki noted it as a graphical front-end to the cdparanoia CD ripping library. Now there are some that want a step by step on that but think it over. It's unlikely that front ends fail but what they are using can fail. Look over the other packages.
And then again, the machine it's on looks like something we see in the shop a lot with folk griping about virus, failing apps and it's the same old story of canned air and heat sink compound work. There are a few that dig in their heels on the work so we thank them for considering our shop, close the bill and send them on their way. Sometimes they are back to get it done since they had other shops take them to the cleaners.
when you install the program from package manager or apt-get make sure to include all "recommends". Previously Mint did that, but without a hack it no longer does automatically, unless you tell it to each time. That's in the filters section of package manager.
Here's an informative thread on it.
In the info or man page you can find this concerning recommends.
All command line options may be set using the configuration file, the
descriptions indicate the configuration option to set. For boolean
options you can override the config file by using something like
-f-,--no-f, -f=no or several other variations.
Do not consider recommended packages as a dependency for
installing. Configuration Item: APT::Install-Recommends.
Consider suggested packages as a dependency for installing.
Configuration Item: APT::Install-Suggests.
Re-install packages that are already installed and at the newest
version. Configuration Item: APT::Get::ReInstall.
Here's the shorter help file, it doesn't mention recommends, so have to consult the man page on that command.

Description: Sophisticated CD/DVD burning application
K3b provides a comfortable user interface to perform most CD/DVD burning tasks. While the
experienced user can take influence in all steps of the burning process the beginner may find
comfort in the automatic settings and the reasonable k3b defaults which allow a quick start.
First of all, I appreciate all who've replied. To Bob: Care to elaborate on "canned air and heat sink compound"? OK, I've installed SJ via the terminal: follwing is a detailed step-by-step of ripping 9 CD's:
OK, I installed/launched SJ from terminal. First 2 "rips" ran the best/fastest I've ever had it run. 3rd rip: took a while "retrieving tracking list", but ripped . 4th rip: couldn't get it to open CD, had to "close" program/relaunch from terminal. Took awhile, but opened and ripped. 5th Cd rip: launched from "menu" and would not retrieve tracks-no rip. 5th CDrip- re-launched from terminal; took great deal of time to 'retreiving tracking list"; started ripping from 5.7x, -2.4x-4.2x-5.1x-5.7x-6x-6.3x-6.7x, then started ripping at regular speeds(anywhere from 8x to 10+ x) 6th CDrip- had to 'launch" from terminal twice: (first would not retrieve listing) same ripping pattern as above; i.e. started ripping very slow and slowly built to regular ripping speed) 7th CD rip; started ripping, then crashed; re-open from menu and started ripping @ 4x gradually to 6.3x, then back to 6x and again gradually rose to "regular" ripping speeds. 8thCD; started ripping @ 9.4x, slowly reverted to 8.7x and at end of rip(9 songs) was @ 8.9x 9th CD: (still launched from menu) started @ 8.8x stayed there till 4-5 song rip; then slowly rose to 9.6x by10th song (end of CD).
So, there it is. I know this was rather redundant, but I hope by showing a "step-by-step" it might provide something to someone who'll figure it out. Perhaps(?), it may run correctly now. Seems the last 2 rips were fairly stable.(?) Well, we'll see what happens when I get a few more CD's to rip. I really hope I don't have to come back here for an explanation and/or "fix:. Would welcome comments on this post!
Canned air use and replacing heat sink compound has many videos on YouTube. I can't duplicate those fine tutorials but once in a while a member will insist. At this point I think I have to write they need to take it to a shop counter and have it done?
Sorry about my thought about it not being Sound Juicer at all but the underlying tools it is calling or the hardware. Given the machine's creds it looks like the usual and the fact you are asking about how to use the common cleaning tool and compound leads me to believe it needs to be done even more.
I really like and use the K3b CD and DVD creator for ripping. I never had a problem.
About thermal paste and canned air => https://encrypted.google.com/#newwindow=1&q=how+to+change+thermal+paste+and+use+canned+air+for+computer+maintenance
that space may be a problem
the "df" command in terminal might give a clue
And they appear to be in some sub 4GB install, all bets are off. You win.

Does this tell you anything significant? THANX
56 GB used, 14 GB available. I see plenty of room if the program is caching the rip correctly and then releasing when it goes to a different DVD to rip. Some software will hold the last rip on cache in case it's to be done again, but should dump when it's told to rip a different DVD. I would suspect the program causing the problem at this point. All I can say is k3b, use the small letters and find in package manager and give it a try. Be sure to let all recommends load with it too as outlined above, and maybe suggestions too.
So, we've determined it wasn't a "space" issue. And the fact that it did a 'decent" job of the last "rip", well, what do you think? Bob, want to weigh in? You're correct in stating we may have to wait until the next rip before determining anything. I'll check out K3b (once I find it), and would like to get UBu Sft. Cent. straightened out so I can use it. I would also like to check out RubyRipper, if I can find it! So, I hope we can get this bug worked out for I'm sick of fighting with this laptop/LM17 already. Might I ask: could you or anyone recommend a good tutorial on setting up partitions on a HDD. I don't like that the installer divided equal space to music and video. Anyways, THANX for all your help!! I've appreciated it.
Looking over the info I provided, just how did you determine the use/availability aspect of the HDD? Also, ripped 1 more CD today and it(SJ) seemed to work without flaw. I don't know what to say except that it's like takin' your car to the dealership when you detect a problem...when you get there, there problem disappears! Do you agree with or know of why Bob is insistent on cleaning the laptop to solve the problems? I'm not saying cleaning it isn't always a good step, but overheating is not (I'm almost certain) causing the strange problems I was having.

It says the file system currently booted aka root (which it reports first in order) is on device sda1, and the sizes are given in KB's sized blocks.
Size = 73,833,688 KB's
Available = 56,123,852 KB's
Used= 13,936,192 KB's
And the used part is 81% of the total space on the root / drive.
two other physical drives were 17.6 GB and sdc1 was definitely a 2GB size flashdrive.
there was other info, that first line is a descriptive header line and then you look at what's under the columns, easier maybe to put in a text file and make the columns wider.
Cleaning doesn't hurt if done right, only you can make that call for sure.
OK, now I see (said the blind). Thanks for explaining. OK, back to the aggravation. This morn. I started "ripping" again to see how it would perform. THIS IS FOR EVERYONE:
Opened from terminal (which I shouldn't have to be doing). 1st CD: took inordinate amount of time "retrieving tracking listing" ; ripped @ 2.3x to 7.4x 2nd CD: took inordinate amount of time "retrieving tracking listing" ripped@ 7.4x steadily regressed to 5.4x, then gradually back to 7.9x 3rd CD: From here on every CD took inordinate amount of time retrieving tracking listing ripped @ 7.4x to 5.3.x- steadily back to 8x. 4th CD: @8x to 6.7x back to 9.3x 5th CD:
9.3x gradually back to 6.7, then gradually back 8.4x 6th CD: 8.4 slowly back to 7.3, then back to 9.3x 7th CD: 9.3x back to 8.7 then quickly rose to 10.4x eventually climbing to 11.4 8th CD: @11.4x gradually back to 8.2x (over 9 songs).
Here is terminal readout: for the most part it read---unrecognized relation attribute: 'type-id' (over and over again) occasionally it would spit out; unrecognized release element unrecognized work element unrecognized track attribute: 'id'. On the 5 or 6th CD it spit out: (sound-juicer:3523) :GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_buffer_unmap: assertion 'GST_IS_BUFFER (buffer)' failed and (sound-juicer:3523) :GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_mini_object_unref: assertion 'mini_object !=NULL' failed So, here it is and here we go! Anyone got an idea of what's going on/ what I need to do to correct? This is getting on my nerves!!
