comment Workaround for playing wav files
Default applications won't work for wav files. I used the properties->set as default method.

comment Ripping DVD movie to near lossless video and audio quality
Great answer. Does it partly reveal a problem with the question? It seems like this is exactly what the OP is asking, but if you did this, would it save any disk space? In that case, seems like the OP could just stick with iso.

comment Workaround for playing wav files
what evidence do you have that my problem has something to do with installing ubuntu-restricted-extras? i tried that solution and it didn't work. can you remove that so as not to lead others astray who are facing this known bug? Or am I misunderstanding what you are saying?

turns out I already had vlc installed for other reasons on my system and though I think of it as not lightweight (not sure why) when I actually set it to play by default for wav files it pops right up. so that solution worked for me. Sounds like Audacious would also work well.

cirosantilli, what I meant by "label" above is the latter--some text at a given position on the PDF.

Unfortunately you cannot use PDF Buddy to combine more than one PDF file.

The thing I didn't like was that you have to create an account (which I didn't do). I expected as much though from a freemium model which allows you to edit 3 documents for free a month. This is a great and easy solution for annotating an existing PDF or adding a signature.

comment How to Edit PDFs?
i just tried BDF Buddy and it seems to be great for simple manipulation of PDF similar to scenario 1 or for signing PDF documents. Unlike inkscape you don't get any access to the PDF elements. But most of the time that's probably more trouble than it's worth. The "white out" feature pdf buddy has is usually sufficient for removing things.
