Bug Description


sound-juicer doesn't work right when gvfs-cdda is crashing underneath

[Test case]

open sound-juicer
insert a cd with a CDTEXT entry with non-ascii text


I desperately need sound-juicer for cd ripping, and while it doesn't find the disc unless I open it in nautilus first, this crash happens often when I either start s-j after mounting it with nautilus or reread the disc contents from s-j.

Same problem for me.

I have this bug occurring, but it is caused by a particular CD, Ry Cooder's "Pull Up Some Dust". The CD has a CDTEXT entry, and it confuses things.

This seems related to bug #902573 , but I'm not sure if we should dupe them.

It is also in precise updated to 26.1.2012:

I have inserted a audio cd in DVD drive. The unity "what to do" dialog pops up and I select to open it with Rhythembox.
Just after rythembox comes up, the crash happends.

It is easy reproducible on just starting Rhythembox with insertet audio cd in drive.

This bug breaks sound-juicer - see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=663459 . I'd raise the priority on this one as sound-juicer is Gnome's default audio ripper and the only one i've found that supports MusicBrainz submitting.

Still happening for me - on precise. Just done an update - problem still here. Not able to rip two of my cds at all due to this issue.

I hit this in a different way on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit updated to 7.4.2012

After inserting a audio cd and starting rhythembox the crash happends also from there.


In respect that rhythembox is the substituent for banshee and one of the default progams for Ubuntu, this bug should be nominated for ubuntu12.04 serie.

I have this crash when trying to open an Audio CD in Rhythmbox in Ubuntu 12.04 amd64

Still happends with the latest updates 12.4.2012

Please raise importance to "critical"! This bug prevents several programs from reading Audio-CDs. What's the status on this? Upstream seems to consider this an issue with Ubuntu patches.

seems like a gvfs upstream issue, we don't patch gvfs-cdda in Ubuntu

Hendrik Knackstedt (hennekn) wrote :

Workaround for this: Use Banshee (instead of Rhythmbox) or RipOff (instead of Sound Juicer). They both work since they are using different software to read Audio-CDs.

Another Workaround: Switch off network connection before starting sound juicer.

The workaround from comment #20 doesn't work for me.

I just managed to rip a CD using sound juicer, which hasn't been possible on Ubuntu for at least a year. So far looks good for the proposed fix. I'll test with different CD's later if needed. Thanks!

  * fix-abort-with-cdtext-outside-ascii.patch:
    CD-Text doesn't specify encoding, but in practice some discs have
    strings with extended characters. Using those directly will make D-Bus
    choke with invalid data. Fixed by assuming latin-1.

Get this error in file manager (Nautilis) too if audio cd in tray. Music players can still access the cd through their own file browser. Pretty annoying bug though as it generates errors on every start up and access attempt.
