Maintaining one page instead of multiple posts. That just gets less confusing for me. Here’s the page
I started a script some weeks ago, when I bought my girlfriend an iRiver E10. It does the updating of the player. Here’s the script, along with a step-by-step guide. 1. Download pmplib and pmplibtools. This script has been tested with version 0.14. 2. Install it. I downloaded the rpm-packages and did: $ sudo alien pmplib*$ sudo dpkg -i pmplib* (That’s for a Debian-based system, like Ubuntu. You’ll figure it out!) That gave me deb-packages I could install by:
3. Make sure you have zenity installed (you probably do, if you use Gnome) 5. Put it in /usr/bin: $ sudo mv /whereever/you/put/it/e10update /usr/bin 6. Make sure the script is executable: $ sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/e10update 7. Run the script by simply: $ e10update 8. You might want to make a menu item for it. I used the mp3-player icon from the human icon set. Gotchas: Make sure your player is mounted as /media/E10. The script needs to be changed if it’s mounted elsewhere. There might be packages besides zenity and pmplib* that you need. Line breaks in the wrong place in this script will cause the script to die horribly. You should be able to figure this out by yourself.
