Looking through the various comments, all appreciated, I decided just to test more CDs as most of mine are old. I found that some of them do get the data as expected.  But not the three I was originally testing with.

One of them is a Willie Nelson Christmas album. Really?

I will point out that all  three of the test CDs get data when played on a Windows PC using Windows Media Player and all three get data using Asunder on Peppermint. Asunder has the ability to specify the database source and the default is freedb.freedb.org. I don't know what Clementine uses but it's obviously not as complete as freedb. I looked in Clementine's various menus and could not find a place to change this as you can with Asunder.

Just now online I found this post...

https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/257753/can-clementine-music-player-fetch-cddb-freedb-data

It's three years old but enough that I think I will take this issue back to Clementine and see what they say,

So I would say this issue is solved in the sense that Peppermint is not the problem. Thanks for all your feedback.

I have been trying the Clementine music player - version 1.3.1 as installed from the Software Manager in Peppermint 10.

My problem is that the music data (artist - album - track titles - etc) are not being fetched from the internet. I confirmed on the Clementine forum that this should happen automatically.

It was suggested that I try installing the Asunder CD Ripper to see if it brings in this data. So I tried that and Asunder does get all that data correctly. So if Asunder can get it, why not Clementine? The person who responded to me on the Clementine forum uses Debian, and Clementine works fine fetching the music data, so it was suggested I bring this question here to see if it is a Peppermint problem.

Could someone who has Peppermint 10 and Clementine on a PC with a CD drive try this out and see what happens?

If anyone has any ideas about this, please let me know what to try.

I consider the autoplay problem to be solved.

I will start another topic to address the Clementine problem.

So what is a tag app? Are you saying I have to add something to get the data needed for Clementine, that it's not built in?

So the answer is no autoplay for the out of the box install but it can be added back. So I added it back and it works. Thanks

For music CDs it defaulted to vlc just as it did for DVDs, so I changed it to Clementine in the settings dialog. Clementine launches but it does not start playing. Are there arguments I need to add to make that happen?

I will mention that I have also been trying Linux Mint XFCE which already had that Removable Drives and Media item under settings. So I guess there's a difference of opinion about whether to include this autoplay option.

For now Peppermint is looking good but I need to do more testing. Also I picked Clementine for the music CDs because of its features, but for some reason the information about the artist and titles are not being received. Any ideas on this?

(The solution to my autoplay problem is in the second post - just below this one.)


Assuming autoplay is possible of course. I have installed Clementine for my music CDs and VLC player for my DVDs. I also ran the magic commands to make VLC play DVDs which it did not do after the initial download. At this point I can insert a CD or DVD, then open Clementine or VLC and manually get things to play. Now I would like Clementine to start automatically when I load a music CD, then start playing. Also, when I insert a DVD I would like VLC to start automatically and get to the initial menu.

Is this possible with Peppermint? If so, what do I need to do?
