Slackware :: (rhythmbox:15745): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Could Not Open Device /dev/radio0
Aug 8, 2010
we were watching Clint Eastwood in Pink Cadillac on DVD. Earlier, I had been checking out the streaming internet radio on my roommates Mint laptop using Rhythmbox, and found it to be pretty cool. Usually, if I stream any music, it's just from the CBC (like the U.S.'s NPR), so I just stream it directly from them, but all the stations on rhythmbox (there's a whack of them) got me interested. At the start of Pink Cadillac, I proposed myself a challenge: Could I manage to get rhythmbox (a GNOME application) to work on my Slack64 -current box, before the movie ended? There's probably (maybe?) a similar app that installs and works more natively on Slack, but that's not the point; I wanted to try installing rhythmbox in < 2 hrs. Well, I got it installed finally, *just* at the end of the movie credits, but it won't play! And sometimes it segfaults. So, I wonder if anyone has any tips about what I might be missing or whatever.
Here's what I typically get when I first start it up (though it starts & runs OK):
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".
(rhythmbox:15745): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_pixbuf_get_width: assertion `GDK_IS_PIXBUF (pixbuf)' failed
(rhythmbox:15745): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to grab media player keys: Could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.SettingsDaemon': no such name
Seems even on systems with some sort of 'natural' support for installing this thing, a lot of people are getting the same or very similar errors, but I haven't found a solution (obviously - I wouldn't be posting otherwise ) but people, myself included, have discovered that there doesn't seem to be a 100% accurate list of *required* dependencies for rhythmbox; it needs stuff that it doesn't tell you it needs.
EDIT: Disclaimer (just to cut the 'dependency-hell' arguments off at the pass, so to speak): This is just a fun experiment for me. I don't suggest Slackware newbies start trying to install <xyz Gnome application> into their Slackware boxes unless you want to spend HOURS fixing stuff like this, and you want to have fun doing it, and have it maybe bork your box up. And if you *do* decide to try it anyways, don't blame Slackware for giving you dependency hell. Gnome doesn't come with Slackware (here's the ChangeLog). I like Slackware exactly the way it is - it comes with more than enough apps to satisfy most people, all nicely working out of the box, so installing stuff like this is not really necessary - but I'm choosing to do this one anyway, and am not deterred by this "mess" of stuff.If this dependency stuff isn't your 'cup of tea', an 'automatically-dependency-resolving' distro might be better for you; I prefer to mess my machine up on my own, rather than let my package manager do it for me.
Whenever I plug my Zune in, Rhythmbox recognizes all the songs on it but when I doubleclick on a song to play it, the song doesn't play and Rhythmbox quits. Any suggestions on how to fix it? I'm running a Dell XPS 410 with 4GB RAM and a 1.75 GHz processor.Also, I imported a CD and it plays fine.
I'm using Ubuntu since some month and lovin it. Only one thing with Rhythmbox and my HTC mobile phone running Win mobile 6.1 is annoying: The mobile device is never recognised as a music player nor as a usb device so I can't load music via Rhythmbox. Ubuntu recognises it as umts-modem which I like and would like to maintain. But is there any way to load music on it at the same time? I've already tried different settings on the devices usb-to-pc settings menu, but this only switches on and off the modem functionality but doesn't make ubuntu recognise the device as usb or music player.
I think this started after upgrading to 10.10. Rhythmbox won't open for some reason. It opens up for a second and closes. I only tried it because Banshee wasn't playing any songs. When I try to open a song it just closes the whole program. A few programs won't open for me actually, at all, including Liferea Feed Reader which I installed recently.
I've encountered a very strange bug in Rhythmbox 0.12.8 on my Ubuntu 10.04 install. For some reason, anytime I have Rhythmbox running, all 3 LEDs on my Nostromo n52 gaming device blink, slightly faster than 1 blink per second (or a little over 60 Hz).The blinking does interfere with use of the n52. While the blinking occurs, only about half of my n52 keypresses get through.I guess Rhythmbox is sending signals via USB somehow. Anyone else noticed this bug?
I have Fedora 12 in my laptop. I can't open rhythmbox, totem movie player, nautilus etc. If I try to open through terminal, it reports that Warning: Unable to create "trees" RDF storage.Performance can be improved by upgrading librdf.I have installed all plugins for playing multimedia files.I searched for my problem but I could not find any solution. In addition to this I could not see any icons in GNOME desktop environment. If I try to open computer through PLACES in menu bar it reports that File Manager not responding.
I have a 1TB external HDD which I use to store my music library of roughly 40 gigs. Therefore I would normally import music directly from it to my Rhythmbox library while keeping everything stored on the removable drive. In recent versions of Rhythmbox this is no longer needed as the application integrates my external HDD into the side pane and lists the music automatically. This is great although when closing Rhythmbox and reopening it, the drive has to be scanned all over again. This is a huge pain when it has to scan through 40+ gigs of music.
Therefore I would like this feature disabled and removed from my side pane. It is not needed and causes quite a large annoyance. Either I want it removed or the ability to keep the index of music from the drive in Rhyrhmbox at all times. Achieving this would be fantastic and would switch me back to Rhythmbox. recently I have been using Exaile which I love but rhythmbox not working bugs me.
I synced my Music Folders on all my computers with rsync. Now when I open Rhythmbox it shows the mp3s as duplicated. So, every album will have two of track 1 and two of track 2 and so on except for the new records and files that were put into that computers Music Folder because they weren't there before.
So, obviously I am doing something wrong with the path of the files/folders because the rsync must be giving the same file different paths or tags or some such. I know from google searching that Rhythmbox will not display duplicates that are true duplicates.
So, short of simply deleting my music folder on every computer and then putting all of the songs back into it... is there anything I can do?
I should mention that the files/folders are not in reality duplicated. I checked both in the folders and also I opened a folder with VLC and it produced a list of tracks that was not duplicated. Its only Rhythmbox that shows them as duplicates.
I am talking about Rhythmbox on my Fedora 13 64 bit installation.
I used to be able to open the Rhythmbox window by just clicking the Rhythmbox icon in the notification area. Now in Lucid it brings up a menu (isn't that what right click is for??) and I have to select "Show Rhythmbox", and sometimes I accidentally click on "Quit" and I have to start Rhythmbox again. It's a real PITA. Is there any way to make it the way it was before? I've looked at the Rhythmbox options and can't find anything about it. (Why do GNOME applications always have barely any options?)
When I have an Audio CD inside my computer in the desktop there is an icon called "Sound disk". When I left click on it Nautilus opens. I would like Rhythmbox to open instead.
I've tried to change in /etc/gnome/defaults.list :
But the problem is still here.
NB: I only need to click once on the icons of the files to open them (I changed the preference of Nautilus). NB2: I have no problem with "Open with" in the context menu when right clicking. NB3: I have no problem when I insert an Audio CD: Rhythmbox opens automatically because I selected that option.
I have installed the Jack audio connection kit from [URL] The two listed dependencies, libsndfile and libsamplerate are installed and everything seemed to go well, except it's not listed in the KDE menus. But that's Ok. I can start it from /usr/bin/jackd But no I can't because I get these error messages:

I installed Squeeze without a DE. Then I installed gdm and rhythmbox, but rhythmbox won't even react to the Create CD button. I have the brasero-cdrkit and cdrdao packages installed for brasero to burn audio CD's which works perfectly. I have the rhythmbox-plugin-cdrecorder package installed too, but no go. The CD spins up, but no dialogs at all from rhythmbox
I cannot get Rhythymbox to recognize my external cd drive when I put a cd in. It used to do so & I was able to import my cd's this way. Now it simply does not find the cd at all. I have upgraded to F13 from F12, so could this be a reason?
I'm having sort of an odd problem trying to burn Cds through Rhythmbox on 9.10. Sometimes it has no problem burning the disc, but lately after I hit "burn" nothing happens and my fan starts running really loud. I think the disc just sits there spinning.
I can still burn discs using brasero, but it seems to be taking a lot longer than it should be. I'm hoping someone might have a quick fix for burning playlists straight from rhythmbox.
I'm using Audacious as my MP3 player, because I just can't take Rhythmbox any longer.I want to set Audacious as the default player for MP3s and Oggs, but I don't seem to be able to. When I open an audio file, it plays in MPlayer. There's an option in the GNOME context menu to open something with a certain programme, so I do that, and then you can choose the programme and tick a box to remember your choice. But the choice isn't remembered - audio still opens in MPlayer.
So then I went to the Default Programmes option in the GNOME Preferences Menu, expecting to find MPlayer as the default media player, but it's not, it's Rhythmbox, which never opens if you double-click on audio files.How do I sort this out and make it so I can set this from one place? It's a pretty big usability fail. How do I make a bug report about it?
I own a Sony NWZ-E345 MP3 player that used to be seen by Rhythmbox when running 9.10 with no issues. After enabling the plugin for MTP within Rhythmbox the player was seen at connection. However, after updating to 10.04 my MP3 player is not seen at all, even though MTP support is enabled under plugins. As a matter of fact none of the media players I installed can see my player and they all support MTP. I tried some other players as a troubleshooting step. I have confirmed that libmtp8 is installed via the repository. Has anyone encountered this as well? I suspect this may be an easy reply for someone. BTW, this occurs with two different machines and nothing has changed with my MP3 player.
I want to report a bug in rhythmbox. But apparently, it doesn't use launchpad, it uses Gnome Bug Tracker. But where is this located? I can't find Rhythmbox in bugzilla. Goggling for "gnome bug tracker" doesn't bring up anything useful.
I have been trialling Slack 13.1 on a spare 32b system for a couple of weeks, and today I took the plunge and put it on my main machine. I completely re-partitioned the drive (using the Slack disk) and installed Windows7 on one partition and Slack 13.1 on another. The install worked fine and I tested that it boots from LILO into both Windows and Slack perfectly. I then ran:
