Essentially, the official answer is that you cannot. But, there is a workaround - you can use symlinks to trick Music into loading files from multiple folders. For example, you can create a folder in your external hard drive and then create a link to it in ~/Music. Noise will be none the wiser, and will show all of your music from multiple locations ...

Using the 'Keyboard' plug in System Settings it's possible to do this. System Settings --> Keyboard --> Shortcuts --> Media gives options to change the shortcuts for playing/pausing and other media functions. Just click the shortcut you want to change and press the desired key-combination.

By default, Music doesn't stop playing just because the window is closed. Very seldom will one actually want or need the window while Music is playing. In this way, Music is a bit of a service. There is an app that allows you fine grained control or you can control playback from the indicator or very passively from media keys, but the window is not required ...

In the bottom left corner of Music, you will see an icon that looks like two straight arrows on top of each other. If you click that icon, the arrows will cross. Your music will now be shuffled.

I found this solution for Ubuntu, which in theory should work in Freya too. First install some packages related to PulseAudio (a sound API used by elementary) by typing the following in a terminal: sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-raop pulseaudio-module-zeroconf paprefs Then start the PulseAudio preferences by typing paprefs and check the two ...

It doesn't do anything special or particularly complicated. It just checks if the genre of the song is the same as the name of one of the equalizer presets. You can see the code in Launchpad

First note that your music files must not be DRM protected then you need libavcodec-extra-53 codec. You can easily install it via terminal: sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra-53

Saving custom equalizer setting In noise version 0.3.1 there is an icon in the textfield where the name of the equalizer setting is displayed. With this icon ("arrow down") you can save your custom equalizer.

Yes it is possible. Right Click on the track you want to delete and select the last option asking to "Delete from library". Refer the first picture. A new Popup appears. The first option is to delete the music from the library and the pc, the second one is cancel option and the last one is your choice. It(last option) deletes the track only from the library....

I finally managed to figure it out. For anyone else who has been having trouble importing music into Noise, follow these steps: Open Noise settings Preferences Music Folder Location: (Default: Music) Then change the default location and it will begin loading from what was previously selected. In my case, I had all my music in the music folder which was ...

Well... You can flip that setting off. Or when it's on, you just stop it from the music/sound indicator on the top bar. That should work in theory and that's what I do but maybe someone else has a better idea.

2D and 3D CAD: Yes, I would recommend FreeCAD! MS Office: There are ways to use Microsoft Office with Linux but it runs really bad, have a look here. I would recommend using LibreOffice, it is faster, has a clean UI and works great on elementary! iPod Classic synchronizing: There are many music players for linux that list iPod support as a feature, like ...

Install mtpfs (If not installed), this will probably solve the issue. To install open terminal and run: sudo apt install mtpfs

I've had the same problem and found a workaround while going through the comment on the bug reports: Add your user account to the audio group by running sudo adduser user audio with user being your user account name.

You can delete the entire database in ~/.local/share/noise/ Noise will then re-scan everything. This is not an ideal solution, an option would be great.

Try sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras This should solve any missing codecs problem.

If you select an artist or album in the column view, and start playing music from there, playback does remain confined to the list you see in the view. Unfortunately, it looks like confining playback to an arbitrary playlist just isn't an option at the moment: https://bugs.launchpad.net/noise/+bug/1507047 Regarding the queue, I tried it and thought it ...

I know this is an old question, but I thought I'd answer in case someone found it useful. For just one album, the first option is always the "View in columns" mode. Select the album from the third top column and it'll stay confined to your choice. Same thing with artists/genres. The second one is as simple as using the searchbar. In any view, just type the ...

I found the workaround here: https://github.com/elementary/music/issues/391 It crashes on startup if an NTFS partition is mounted. I unmounted all network shares and it doesn't crash on startup for me anymore.

That bug/feature request is the way to go. In fact, one exists, so please subscribe to the bug report here for when the devs need help testing solutions. If you want to give the open source devs some extra incentive, try putting a developer bounty on the task. And of course, if you're interested in writing it yourself...

I found a way to fix it! You only need to edit the informations of all your m4a songs and delete the year and the compositors! It's a nuisance, but it worked for me... hope it helps!

cd /home/username/.local/share/noise/ and delete the Database(*.db) in this folder. After this step you can import your mp3 files again.

Theoretically, this should be regulated by one of the options in the settings dialogue, as I understand it. It has not been working for me, however and I have to re-scan the library manually every time I want Music to acknowledge a change I made.

Try in terminal : localectl set-locale "LANG=en_IN.utf8" localectl set-locale "LANGUAGE=en_IN.utf8" Check again your /etc/default/locale file matchs the changes. Check Lollypop runs without issues. Also: You can manually update your locales specs: sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales Notice your language format. It should be "en_IN.utf8" or "en_IN.UTF-8" (*)...

It's not just Noise (the music app) but YouTube videos, Spotify, and all system audio stops/pauses when the screen locks (or machine suspends). The easiest solution is to change the settings for when the screen turns off (turns to lock screen), which is set for 15 minutes by default in Settings > Power. I agree that system audio should continue in the ...

What worked for me was adding my user into the 'audio' group. This isn't necessarily a good idea for the reasons listed here, but for a single user system shouldn't be problematic. sudo usermod -a -G audio myusername

I had the same problem, it was indeed a matter of missing codecs for the open format files were imported. However I did not want to install ubuntu-restricted-extras since those included several plugins I'd rather not install right now as flash and java. I solved this by sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0 which installed a few libs and plugins.
