$ mount /dev/sr0
Error reading bootsector: Input/output error
Failed to mount '/dev/sr0': Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

This error indicates a problem with the optical drive, or the medium in it.  If several different CD/DVDs show the same error, suspect hardware in the drive, cable or controller.

So it is an audio CD? Those don't have a a real file system on them, and need to be accessed using a media player or audio ripper.

So, is it an audio CD or what kind of data is in this disc?

Knoppix obviously uses gvfs or similar to show the audio tracks:

just saw VL64-7.2-STD-FINAL.iso   over test repo, but didn't hear   about release announcement   yet over forum.

should i wait for while (in case of further version  might  be coming as well)?

"FINAL" is in "final" internal testing, and will be announced when we are sure no new bugs have crept into the final ISO.

Can you slapt-get -u and slapt-get -i grip with untested enabled?  Just updated it to 3.5.1 and that should also fix the dep issue.

Not familiar with orage, would you please describe the steps you use to get to where you select a background?

Package grip 3.5.1 tests good. You should also install "vorbis-tools" with it, as it provides the default audio encoder "oggenc".

Orage

with the xfce desktop panels, one can right click on the panel and select  panel/ add new item.

the dialog appears with options, select orage panel clock, the clock appears on panel.

Right click on the orage panel clock and select properties.

the clock properties options at the top of the dialog include check boxs to toggle foreground and background color. with a color selector.

checking the background box should change the clocks background, and one should be able to select a color more closely matching the panel background.

I have the panel semi transparent and wallpaper color blends but the clock background remains the image of the default panel. When it works, one can more closely match the panel color and orage panel clock color.

at one time it was transparent but of late the background color is the only option to match the panels color.



will try grip again as suggested

Thanks very much

Thanks, don't think I would have found it on my own.  ;D

Looks like compositing has to be enabled in the window manager to unlock several of these options. XFCE users please chime in.
