I apologize if this is the wrong place for the question but I have an error whenever I attempt to start it. I am running the most current release of Fedora Core 1 and just installed it. I have updated everything with apt-get and Sound Juicer CD Ripper won't work. Everytime I execute it I get a
Error: Could not start Sound Juicer
Reason: The plugin necessary for CD access was not found.
Please consult the documentation for assistance.
I have googled for a solution and looked into the documentation and i am still at a loss as to what the error is.

Can you play music from your CD-ROM drive?

Are you sure you've got the cdparanoia plugin? It's supposed to be required for Sound Juicer looking at the Sound Juicer homepage (http://www.burtonini.com/blog/computers/sound-juicer?flav=xhtml). The cdparanoia plugin is supposed to, "extract audio from compact discs directly as data, with no analog step between, and writes the data to a file or pipe in WAV, AIFC, AIFC or raw 16 bit linear PCM."

I'd imagine thats the plugin you're after, so you can download the source here (http://www.xiph.org/paranoia/download/cdparanoia-III-alpha9.8.src.tgz) or visit the website here (http://www.xiph.org/paranoia/index.html).

I hope that helps :D

I had this error pop up as well. You need to have all GStreamer related packages installed since Sound Juicer is a Gtk/GStreamer based application. I think I remember needing the "gstreamer-plugins-extras" to fix the problem. Make sure you have all these packages installed:

[list]
gstreamer
gstreamer-plugins
gstreamer-plugins-extras
gstreamer-plugins-mp3
[/list:u]

You can get them at the FreshRPMS repository by adding this to your /etc/yum.conf:
[code:1]
[freshrpms-fc-1]
name=Fedora Project $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms
[/code:1]

I have a weird problem kind of related to this, I can't hear any music when I play CD's. On Windows I can just fine. And then, I can extract from the CD and then I can hear it just fine :shock:

Check your mixer settings by running `aumix` from the terminal and make sure none of the channels are muted. If you use ALSA sound drivers, run `alsamixer` instead.

Others things to check are:
[list]
Make sure your CDROM drive is being properly detected on boot by running `dmesg | grep ^hd` and looking for your CDROM drive.
Check by some slim chance the drive is not in the correct ownership. It should belong to user your username and group disk
Check the cable is properly attached from your Sound Card to your CDROM drive
[/list:u]

I had the exact same problem and just got it all up and working. First update your yum.conf (if you haven't already) like mhelios says below:

Then open up a console with root privileges and type: yum install gstreamer-plugins-extra-audio

To check for missing dependencies, instal yum-utils


yum install yum-utils


And then do the check:
