OpenSUSE :: How To Upgrade Banshee In 11.2

Jul 16, 2010

I am using Banshee 1.6 (beta 2) 1.5.1. I'm actually interested in is getting the Amazon mp3 extension to work, and I don't see this extension in my current version of Banshee. I tried to upgrade & ended up wiping my whole hard drive & had to re-install 11.2 but I'm sure that was my inexperience more than anything else.

I'm not sure of the proper procedure to upgrade any particular package on 11.2 actually. I just leave them alone & it works great. I could add the Banshee repo (which I have not done) but even if I uninstall 1.6 which I have now, and then re-install the newer app from the repo, it will not work. It says it installs properly (I know this from yesterday) but the program doesn't show up in the menu.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cannot Get Banshee To Rip CD To MP3 On 11.4

May 14, 2011

I'm using Opensuse 11.4 with Gnome 3 (magic!) and have installed Banshee which is always brilliant. However, though I'm pretty sure I've installed all the requisite codecs, I cannot get it to rip my CD's to MP3. The option is not in the drop down menu, only flac, ogg, wav, and wavpack are available. Usually there's the option to rip to MP3 to accompany those options. The odd thing is it's playing other MP3's I've already got just fine.

OpenSUSE :: Banshee 1.8.0 Not Showing Up After Install?

Oct 31, 2010

When I installed banshee 1.6.1 from the default repository it worked fine. But I wanted the newest version (1.8.0) for its new features and so I've tried both adding their (openSUSE 11.3) repository and doing it through yast and also installing it (for openSUSE 11.3) straight from their website with the "1-click install". Both of these methods did the exact same thing, just the latter added the repository for me (much simpler/lazier). Now, after installing banshee 1.8.0, it does not show up in the application launcher menu. So, I'm not sure how to open it and/or add it to the kickoff menu.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: How To Install Banshee

Dec 7, 2009

I want to install the latest version on my system, so I go to the Banshee download site, and do the install for SuSE 11.0. That brings up the Yast2 installer, which tries to do the install, but barfs with message something like "banshee-1-backend-engine-gtkstreamer-1-1.5.1-1.1.i586 required, uninstallable providers bansheexxxx [OpenSUSE_11.0],Conflict resolution: following actions will be done" with a long list of actions.So I click on "OK-Try Again", but it doesn't DO anything, just endlessly repeats the same message.Is there some way to bypass this, and get it to actually install?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Works Vrs. 1.6.1 In 11.3

Aug 10, 2010

I don't know, I couldn't get Banshee to work at all in 11.2... Something to do with Codecs, licensing, or related. I upgraded the system to 11.3 and then just dbl-clicked on a .wav and a .mp3 file. Big surprise - everything worked wonderfully, all with no further effort from me!

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee And High CPU Use In 11.4?

Mar 25, 2011

I'm using OpenSuse 11.4, and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed consistent high CPU utilization with banshee? By high CPU use I mean, when the application is running (whether it's idle, playing music, or scanning) CPU use on my machine is almost consistently at 100% (one core pegged).

Scanning my music library took hours ... like 3-4 hours to scan 9500 songs, and banshee was the only application running on my machine.

Rhythymbox doesn't suffer the same fate, scanning the same library took 5 minutes and CPU busy is less than 2% when it's running or playing music.

I'm running banshee 1.9.3, and I'd rather use it vs Rhythmbox.

OpenSUSE :: Banshee Doesn't Recognize Ipod?

Nov 14, 2009

I've just installed openSUSE 11.2 (with Gnome). Everything works fine except the Ipod support in Banshee (Ver. 1.6 Beta 2).

When I connect my Ipod Video 30GB to my Computer it is recognised in openSUSE and also a new Nautilus windows with the Ipod content is opened. But in Banshee there is no Ipod button or anything else which allows me to sync my music with Ipod.

I've already tried to delete the /home/{user}/.config/banshee-1 folder and installed the banshee-1-dmp-ipod package. The Ipod plugin (Ver. 1.0) is also installed in Banshee.

OpenSUSE :: Banshee - Edit The Track Information?

Sep 14, 2010

I'm using the default media player 'Banshee', and when I select multiple tracks to edit bulk information, ie Album Name or Genre, it's only changing the track I right click on, regardless of multiple being selected.Is this the default action for Banshee, and if so, is there a way to change multiple track information at once.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee KDE 11.2 - Cannot Add Radio Stations?

Nov 15, 2009

I just installed OpenSuse 11.2 KDE on my Macbook and try as I might, I cannot get used to Amarok. I like Banshee and it's simple interface, plus the way it handles radio stations and the like.

I did install it using YaST and I am able to run it, but I am unable to add internet radio stations and also I am unable to play them (and other MP3 files) if I manually connect to the stream. As far as adding radio stations, I am unable to because the Genre box stays grayed out and the Save button stays grayed out because the Genre box has not been filled in (but I can't because it's grayed out). As far as playing MP3s, Banshee says I need a codec and when i click 'Search' for a suitable codec, it takes me to an OpenSuse download page with the decoder there but it's for OpenSuse 10.3, not 11.2.

These are probably simple problems with simple solutions but I can't seem to figure them out. Also, K3B says the MP3 Decoder is missing as well. I'm sure it is related to the Banshee problem too.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Banshee With 11.2 Gnome 2.28.0?

Dec 12, 2009

i have a fresh installation of opensuse 11.2 32-bit. my soundcard is terratec ewx 24-96. the card is detected in yast, and i can play test sound from the yast/sound panel. all volume sliders are set to maximum values (i have also double checked it in alsamixer).

i *can* hear the sound when doing this test from the gnome terminal:

speaker-test -dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

however to make this test work:

speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav

i had to remove the asound-pulse.conf file. after removing this file the second test (speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav) works. removing this file also solved the problem of missing sound in videos videos played in firefox. the original contents of the asound-pulse.conf file was:

pcm.pulse {
type pulse
}
ctl.pulse {

[code]....

the problem is i can't play any audio files (.wav or .mp3) in banshee.

i am sure the .wav file i use while testing is ok as i can play it with aplay.

when i try playing the .wav file, banshee does not complain about any missing codecs. the slider moves as the file is being played. i have also started banshee with the --debug option, but there were no errors in the output.

so my guess is that banshee is playing the files, it's just that it sends the data to the wrong device/channell or whatever it is.

all of the gstreamer packages i have installed are from the packman repository.

when i run gstreamer-properties, the only setting on the audio tab that gives me sound is: alsa (for the plugin) and default (for the device).

Dec 19, 2009

Hi! This is my first post here, I'm back to openSUSE since the last version I used 10.1 and I'm really enjoying using 11.2 so far .

Banshee (or totem) can't play mmsh streams. I have packman repositorie activated and have installed all gstreammer plugins plus ffmeg and ffmpeg related gstreamer plugins and libmms0.

I can play mp3, xvid and other formats, but these streams are the only thing that does not work.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Won't Play CDs With Video

Jun 25, 2010

I want to retain Banshee on my system. However, whenever I buy a CD that also contains video, it will not play the music or video. When I try to listen to the music, it simply puts a red cross against each track. Since combining video and music is VERY common, this means I have a whole host of CDs that will not play. MS media player and VLC have no problems with these, so how can I make Banshee play them?

And till now, I still unable to search for it, because there's still no sound or a little sound on both players.

I am running OpenSuse 11.3, I have Banshee 1.8.0 and I want to use it to manage my music but now it's crashing as it starts up. I had just moved all my music to the computer and banshee had just scanned it into the library and then it crashed, and now it crashes every time I try to run it.

OpenSUSE :: Banshee 1.5.2 Crashes On Selecting Import Media In 11.2

Jan 9, 2010

I'm running banshee 1.5.2 on opensuse 11.2 (x64) with KDE 4.3.1 release 6. Each time I select the Import Media option banshee simply crashes. I have reinstalled/upgraded banshee from scratch but still get the same issue. Here is what I see in the debug (banshee-1 --debug) log at the point of the crash.

OpenSUSE :: OS11.3 - Get Banshee / Rhythombox To Play M4a - Aac Or Similar?

Aug 2, 2010

Has anyone succeeded in coercing either banshee or rhythmbox to play "restricted" media? On my 11.3 install, I have all the packages from the "one-click" install that takes 49 clicks to find on the new wiki structure ... Playback works correctly in mplayer, gnome-mplayer, and smplayer. VLC works also, ... yawn ....

This is the third consecutive release [COLOR="rgb(0, 0, 0)"](AT BEST)[/COLOR] where this stuff is badly broken! By badly broken, I mean that installing all the needed software and codecs does not appear to be the only requirement. I was able to get it working in 11.1 and 11.2, but only via a hit and miss series of un-install the packages, reinstall one by one ... making offerings of fatty sheep ... reinstalling again .... performing the second part of the ring cycle for the neighbours cat ... remove the codecs again .... install again ... wow ... it's working ... set the entire system to ro ... sing for the cat again!

Does anyone have any insight as to why gstreamer is SOOOOOOO foobared in OpenSUSE? Can anyone articulate a series of steps that will actually get the desired result? BTW, getting this stuff working in FC13 is trivial. Add the fusion repo and install the codecs! I remember a better day in SuSE land when one added the packman repo and installed the codecs ...
