Thank you very much.
Out of curiosity, do you know if cozy audio player works with ubundu mate? If so, do you know how to install it? I tried but got errors when I tried.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I was wondering for outside a epub reader I would like to find a audio book audio player which keeps the place where you stopped at
Again, I sincerely thank you for your help.
