Sansa Fuze, Works great with Ubuntu and Rythmbox

Filed under
Hardware

I purchased a Sansa Fuze 4gb music and video player for my wife this Christmas and thought I would comment on how it got along with Ubuntu 9.10.

would comment on how it got along with Ubuntu 9.10. All in all it was a breeze to use in this particular version of Linux. When it is connected via the usb port it can be set to auto start the Rythmbox application and is immediately listed in the left hand column and all it’s music is listed in the right column ready to be managed as needed. I found adding about 850 megabytes of music files (mixed .mp3 and .wma) to it took but a few minutes on my 2ghz system. It supports album art if your files are tagged correctly as well as some .jpg files I loaded onto it as a test. The device supports video playback and I would highly recommend any Ubuntu users to download an app called video4fuze.

Review: Ubuntu MATE 17.10

Ubuntu MATE 17.10 is a solid release with a few minor caveats about the Mutiny layout. The Traditional MATE layout is very nice, but Mutiny still needs some work. For users who want the classic GNOME 2 look-and-feel, Ubuntu MATE is an excellent choice. However, Unity users looking for a Unity-like experience should still give Ubuntu MATE with the Mutiny layout a try, but need to be aware that it does have some issues and it won't work exactly like Unity. The Contemporary layout is also an option for Unity users, but is even further removed from the Unity experience than Mutiny is. Read more
