Newbe here trying to learn Linux on Raspberry Pi 2B Jessie. While I can get the Front Center wave file to play with:
sudo aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
When I try to play my wave files I get one of two errors:
No such file or directory, or file not found, even though I am in the folder where the wave file resides and have verified with ls as well as verifying the path as
The service pulseaudio status results are:
pulseaudio.service Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory) Active: inactive (dead)
I just want to play the wave files in my folder continuously in a loop.
I installed mplayer when aplayer produced those errors. No change. What am I missing? Trying to associate the player to the .wave files was unsuccessful as well. This is sure different from Windows where I could do this in 10 seconds!
ls-la /home/pi total 222220 drwxr-xr-x 23 pi pi 4096 Apr 23 05:08 . drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Sep 24 2015 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 26460046 Feb 12 18:20 test 1.wav -rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 26460046 Feb 12 18:23 test 2.wav -rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 26460046 Apr 22 11:36 test 3.wav -rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 26460046 Oct 12 2015 test 4.wav
So researching file permissions I see these files as well as all files copied from a jump drive cannot be read. Does this mean all file permissions will have to be changed once copied onto the Pi? This also explains why the programs would not install. Is there a way to copy files and retain their permissions?
