This week, in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we have posted a review SoundConverter which is, in our opinion, the best and perhaps the most complete audio converter for Ubuntu. SoundConverter is very simple to install and after few minutes you will be able to freely “play” with your music library. SoundConverter plays: Ogg Vorbis, AAC, MP3, FLAC, WAV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, M4A, AC3, DTS, ALAC, MPC, Shorten, APE and writes: WAV, MP3, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis files. In the SoundConverter website you can also find some useful extra instructions about “how to enable mp3 output“. More in general, please don’t forget to take a look at the Ubuntu Documentation site to learn how to play restricted formats on your Feisty.
Today, in our Linux Page, we want talk again about bootable Linux on pendrives. This time we discovered that the guys from http://pendrivelinux.com/ released a new USB portable Linux: Ubuntu 6.10. We tried to use Ubuntu 7.04 instead 6.10 and… it works (in our test: Windows installation on 1GB pendrive)! As for Knoppix 5.1.0 (see our post on January 26, 2007) also this portable version of Ubuntu 7.04 is easy to be installed on a USB key and it’s full of interesting features. For the installation you have to carefully follow the instruction contained on the specific pendrivelinux pages (more instruction also available for installation using Linux). Please don’t be worried after the first reading because all the necessary steps are well explained and if you follow them it’s really not possible to make mistakes! Enjoy it!
