    First questions

    First, using the RC1 distro installed on my hard drive, are the 3 plugins there? nCarInfo.py, nWeather.py and nGpsd.py? I did a find, and found nothing. Are they on the CD, or do I need to wait for LI2 next week?

    Second, how do I update the Audio Library? I have 4 directories with albums in each. The Library only finds the first directory, and the first album in that directory.

    Third, is there a way to stop the audio?

    I am an Ubuntu noob, coming from XP and Fedora, so excuse some obvious questions. A link would be as helpful, to save typing.

    Thanks.

    Jeff

    nCarInfo and nGpsd are nghost plugins so they are libncar.so and libngpsd.so in /usr/lib/nghost. They are enabled/disabled in your /etc/nghost/plugins.conf or ~/.nghost/plugins.conf file.

    nCarinfo is enabled by default. ngpsd was unstable during the last tests so it isn't enabled. nweather doesn't look like it's compiled into libnghost, which is why it probably isn't working. I'll file a bug and push an update to enable nweather. It's not likely to cause any regression since it runs out of process.

    Second, how do I update the Audio Library? I have 4 directories with albums in each. The Library only finds the first directory, and the first album in that directory.

    Third, is there a way to stop the audio?
    As long as your music is properly tagged and is put in ~/Music, nscan should find it. You do have to reboot for nscan to pick it up though (which is the sux, but hopefully we can fix that in an update).

    you can stop the audio by toggling the play button on the icepanel. (click music->play).

    Hope that helps. Thanks for the feedback!
