Howto. Copy disk as iso on hdd with k9copy and play with media player

Post#1 by francois » 21 Jan 2019, 00:32

With k9copy you can make a copy and play it as an iso that you have bought of a cd or dvd on your hdd.
K9Copy

There is a slackware package provided by ponce (64 bit):
http://ponce.cc/slackware/slackware64-1 ... 2ponce.txz

To play the iso copy.
http://go2linux.garron.me/mounting-ISO-images-in-Linux/

Provide a directory:

Code: Select all

mkdir /media/ISO
mount -t iso9660 -o loop image.iso /media/ISO

Usually this technique fails when the CD is an audio CD. I think to francois and many others that fact is quite obvious, I just wanted to add the info for folks who did not know that. Use a CD ripper to create ogg/vorbis or mp3's instead.

(And yes, technically an audio CD is not a ISO CD.)

I'm pretty sure francois is indeed referring to copying an audio disk/CD to an ISO file on the hdd.

You do know that a CDDA or commonly known as an Audio CD is not an ISO disk?

I know that Nero (including the Linux variant that was available for a time) was indeed able to copy an Audio CD into an nrg file (Nero's own ISO-like file format), but they had to add extra headers or else it would not work.
An Audio-CD differs compared to an ISO data CD or a Video-DVD (which is also not an ISO image) that it not only stores the audio data digitally, but it also stores information by having the music data pressed more or less "deep" into the layer of the CD. And that's the reason why a written at high speed Audio-CD often fails when played with non-PC-based Audio CD players, cause the "deepness" of the Audio-Data is usually not considered when writing an Audio-CD at high speed. [Creating an image prior writing is helping in this regard quite a bit] I am not sure if I am able to get the info about the technical stuff right, because no native tongue and such.

But it is ages ago since I last did such stuff, for more info about such things go to https://forum.doom9.org/ . This was and probably still is the best net resource when it comes to digital video, DVD or CDDA reading, writing and converting.

And no, I have not the time nor will to research all that CDDA magic again, if someone is interested do the research for yourself.

The rest I wrote below is why but since its not really necessary to know about since it just gives personal reasons, but no technical info or help about th thread's matter, I put it into a very small font.
I just had a operation on Monday (that was planned as ending part of the work trip I took, since I had to be at that place anyway, so i combined the work and the medical necessary treatment) and it will take some weeks till I am again at my usual level, so all I do is in RL and in my "online life" is being in energy savings mode, so to speak. Mentally and physically, since my body wants to use as many resources to heal the best and quickest it can, and I want to support my body in that the best I can by avoiding all unnecessary stress or unnecessary stuff of any kind, but that also means my usually favourite pastime, long hours in nature, is also not possible right now. :(

And no, currently not even laughter is the best medicine, since the the kind of operation that was, with the cutting open and such, gives me pain attacks at the stitched wound cause it is near the area you contract involuntarily when you laugh, or cough.
Cheers!

Hi francois,
under 4.0 Xfce the program k9copy does not work:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ k9copy
k9copy: error while loading shared libraries: libkdeui.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Which package should I additionally load?
Thank you

I hope this helps Kulle.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -s libkdeui.so.5

 ----------------------------- 
 Are you searching for a library file? 

libkdeui.so.5, it seems a library.
Would you like to find the package for it? [y/n]

 libkdeui.so.5  was found in   kdelibs-4.14.21-x86_64-1.txz

If kdelibs-4.14.21 is on an alien database there's nothing you can do at this point. If it's on a different database a bad mirror could be the cause and that can be resolved by changing the mirror's txt file or running sesm.sh. [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM

IIRC mariadb-10.0.38 is not listed in LIBS.TXT -- select a different version of mariadb.
( And because k9copy is a KDE / QT app you need a lot more to make it run in XFCE..)

I think you are mistaken on that. Neither the K9Copy article on wikipedia nor http://k9copy.sourceforge.net/ say its a KDE program.

Okay, both are not info that is listed like so on the page I quoted.

Why do they hide the info, the list with "Prerequisit" I quoted is so much smaller than the one you posted above.

I think you are correct, then, and I got mistaken by believing the info from http://k9copy.sourceforge.net/ =@

The link seem to point to a very old version.(1.0)

Translated quote from wikipedia (DE)
From version 2 K9Copy relies on KDE4.

Thank you for the informations.
But I stopped the action.
Creating k9copy for Xfce is too difficult for me; too many dependencies.

Suggestion: Set up a Porteus KDE just for this task. You could leave out stuff you not need, Like the browser, or when it comes in extra module, games, but me thinks KDE would more probably be one big module like all other standard Porteus DEs are, instead of several smaller ones.

Or, like donald found out, try out the 1.0 version that seems to be without KDE dependency, if the 1.0 k9copy is elaborate enough for your needs.
