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.

  • Watch this highlight reel of iAlwaysSin's Alien Isolation livestreams!
    Last Thursday the newest member of the GOL Livestream Team, iAlwaysSin, completed her live playthrough of the extremely scary Alien Isolation. And, to commemorate this achievement (and all the deaths that occurred in the process) I decided to download and edit all the VODs together into a nice highlight reel. With my sarcastic remarks, of course.

Manjaro Linux: Reliable and Up to Date, Geekdom Optional

Regular readers can pretty much ignore this one. We’ll be back to cartoons, O’s baseball and the usual inanity soon, tomorrow in fact. I just wanted to revisit my dedication to Linux, prompted by a recent mixed bag of experiences that left me feeling even more positive about a relative newcomer to the distro scene: Manjaro. It all started a few days ago, when I decided to finally try to update the eight remaining Linux installs on my main desktop PC. I’ve been using Linux Mint (18.1 Cinnamon) as my daily driver for several months, originally in an attempt to keep my bandwidth usage to a reasonable level, and then due to inertia/lack of issues. I could have gone with my trusty Debian stable install, my go-to for years up till then, but I guess I was just getting bored. Read more
