Ubuntu 11.04- Rhythmbox and Banshee used to work ok, but today when either started up they both promptly appear to close down. The only difference is that this morning I had pugged my iPod into the machine, though I don't know if this is relevant. I removed both programs and reinstalled them- now Rhythmbox works, but Banshee still appears and then closes down, whether or not the iPod is pugged in (now suspect this is not part of the problem).
I seem to be having a problem with Banshee. When I boot up, it automatically starts up, which seems innocent enough. However, I opened up Exaile (because Banshee had this problem of not recognizing spaces in some of my songs' filenames, replacing them with '%20'), and closed Banshee from its notifications icon. It closed, but about 3-5 seconds later its window pops up again. I used Ctrl+Q to quit, but it still came back after a few seconds. I've tried opening up a terminal and typing "killall banshee-1", but still, Banshee keeps coming back. Even though I restart and not open Exaile, Banshee still keeps coming back when I try to kill it.
I just got a Samsung U5, and although I could drag and drop, it's not as good as syncing. I've tried using both rhythmbox and banshee to sync my music from a playlist. It only happens when I set it to MTP, that both programs tend to crash. If I set it to MCS none of them will even detect the device, but will both work fine as music players. So far, rhythmbox just freezes and won't let me do anything with the device. Banshee only syncs half of the music files and comes up with this error. LIBMTP_Send_Track_From_File_Descripto():subcall to LIBMTP_Send_FIle_From_File failed I've tried several times and it'll only add a couple of more songs.
I used Easy Tag to edit my songs' ID3 tags. Banshee reads them fine but Rhythmbox misreads them! For eg., blink 182, Blink 182, and Blink-182!!! Apparently it's because Easy Tag makes ID3v1 tags while Rhythmbox read ID3v4? That's SO stupid! What am I supposed to do now? I saw RB had a bug filed but it got closed because "it's not a problem with rhythmbox, it's a problem with ID3 tags." RB should be able to read them! That's ridiculous. So how do I fix the tags? As for Banshee, anyone else move from version 1.6 to 1.7.6? The new one crashes everytime I use it. It's simply awful. And this is supposed to lots of bugs fixed? It's the new stable version? What a joke! How do I fix this now? Or better yet, how to go back to version 1.6? ^ Never mind, I downgraded it. Still have the rhythmbox problem! I'm using Ubuntu Lucid 64 bit with Gnome. RB should be able to read them! That
This is more of a question for developers of rhythmbox DAAP support. I am using rhythmbox to remotely access music exported by mt-daapd server. It works fine. But it does not seem to close connections properly. This problem is very severe when you press "prev" button a few times. How to reproduce (this just one way):
1) Start playing a few songs (playlist or an album). 2) press "next" button a few times 3) then press "prev" a few times.
The playback might even pause for many seconds if you are not a LAN. Now check connections opened by Rhythmbox.. (netstat -n | grep 3689 on client). You will notice a lot of connections, and they stay for a very long time.. multiple hours. Let me know if anyone needs more info.
I have a dsi so all of my music in .m4a I have all the codecs/gstreamers packages installed and they are all from packman it's not my sound cause I can play them in vlc but in rhythm box it says that I do not have the proper codec to play the file. Any ideas? Also I'm on 11.2 latest updates.

Both Banshee and Rhythmbox crash, leaving a segmentation fault in the terminal, after playing a song for less than a second. I do manage to get some sound before they crash. This problem seems to have begun only a couple of days ago after doing an update. Unfortunately I was playing playing around with moving my music collection to an NFS share around the same time as the update so I can't be sure which action it was that broke music playback.
Because both Banshee and Rhythymbox are affected and showing identical behaviour I think the problem is gstreamer. Reinstalling everything I could find in synaptic related to gstreamer had no effect.
Some general information: - My music collection is in FLAC but other formats seem to cause the same behaviour. - Music from an NFS share or my external USB drive causes the same behaviour - VLC plays music from my NFS share without any problems - Removing ubuntu-one (as suggested in some posts) did not help - I'm using Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 x86
I've had no luck searching the interwebs for help thus far. Does anyone have any ideas?
For awhile now, I've been trying to set two global hotkeys to control my volume level in Banshee. Before anyone comes in here and says to use the Volume Up/Volume Down keybinds in gnome-keybinding-properties, that does not work. That controls the master volume. I'm looking for a global hotkeys that control JUST the application volume.I've been playing around now, and I think I might have found a way. Since 9.10, Pulseaudio is integrated and the default sound manager. It also allows controlling the application volume level. While changing the volume would be through Pulseaudio and not in the specific application, this would work.
My question is if there's a way to set a keybind to control a specific application's volume within Pulseaudio? Or even a way to set a keybind to the event that happens when a specific application's volume is turned up or down within Pulseaudio.
10.10 notice that when I shut down either Rhythmbox or Banshee the music keeps on playing. There are no icons on the top or bottom panels that I could right click and quit. At the moment I go System, Admin, System Monitor and kill the process - but this is surely not the way to shut down these apps. The Close box in these apps are not closing down the app.
Do anyone know how to replace rhythmbox with banshee on ubuntu 10.04.2? I just don't like the feel of the interface, and it feels cluttered to me. I'm going to install it, the latest version from the ppa, and I feel I want to remove rhythmbox from my computer, but I'm afraid that it will break some packages or destabilize my computer.
Lately I've been browsing through media players to use to listen to music and I really like the look and feel of both Rhythmbox and Banshee.Problem is, I'm used to the keyboard control scheme of iTunes, where the spacebar and left/right arrow keys control play, previous, and next song respectively. This isn't the case in either of these programs.I am aware of the gnome setting in System>Preferences>Appearance>Interface>Editable menu shortcuts. But I can't get the menu shortcuts to use the left/right arrow keys.My question is.. does anyone know of anyway to use the control scheme of iTunes as i described before in either of these two players? Either by editing the shortcuts or editing a configuration file associated with one of the players?
I have a Sansa mini-clip MP3 player. Now that I am using Ubuntu I wanted to totally redo my play lists. So using the Sansa menu, I formatted the MP3 player to start fresh. Then I opened Rythmbox and was going to import my MP3 files from my hard drive. Only problem is all of my MP3 files are grayed out on the import files menu. Then I installed Banshee and tried to import the MP3 files and they are grayed out in that program too.
why my MP3 files won't import into Rythmbox or Banshee?
I'm literally banging my head against my computer desk now, because i'm really frustrated about Banshee Or Rhythembox not putting all my songs onto the ipod. I have 930 songs, and they only put 303 songs onto the Ipod. I manually put them in, and still wont work. This is really upsetting. It used to work so perfectly in 10.04, but it's not workin in 10.10.
i am not real sure where to place this thread, so i will try here first. i have a Cowon S9 mp3 player that i like to plug into my computer and play music through Rhythmbox under Ubuntu. I have been trying other distros (OpenSuse 11.3 being my current distro). However when i plug in my mp3 player to my OpenSuse box, it doesn't show up in the side bar of Rhythmbox like in Ubuntu. I have shutdown my firewall, i compared the installed plugins under the OpenSuse Rhythmbox to those under Rhythmbox under Ubuntu and they are the same. i've tried Googleing my problem and have not found a solution. Either i am not entering the correct search terms, or NOBODY else is having the same problem i am. I have OpenSuse installed on both my laptop and my desktop and I have the same problem with both.
When my Iphone had the 4.2.1 firmware it mounted just fine with Ubuntu, OK sure it took a download of libimobiledevice1 and some other libraries but it worked, and sync'd just fine with Rhythmbox. But, as all manufacturers do, they have released a superior new OS for the phone which fixes all those annoying little bug. I have read from 4.3.2 they changed the itunes database version to an updated one. Now this is fine if you have a windows or mac machine running the latest version of itunes but if like all of us here you have an Ubuntu machine for a very valid reason... i.e you wanted a better operating system that wasnt going to cost the earth.
well, you are screwed as they have locked the third part access to the device's itunes library. I have followed long procedures trying to hack into the phone, modifying certain files, creating a hashfile and dropping this into a system folder to fool the phone into thinking it has the 4.2.1 database still but to no avail. Now my iphone is jailbroken, for the very same reasons as to why have an ubuntu machine, a good peice of hardware with good software that i can customise to run how i see fit, this error is the same with my friends non jaibroken phone and my wifes newly updated iopd..
Surely someone out there who has an ipod, iphone 3gs who are running 4.3.2 or higher has figured out how to fix this annoying "update" problem. The phone mounts fine and i can see a documents drive and the main iphone itself, so it is being recognised but im getting errors when trying ti access the phone in ANY linux media software... They all see the phone but cant recognise the database.
This is kind of a minor complaint, but nonetheless a problem that I'd like to see resolved. In Rhythmbox and Banshee, artist names that begin with the word "the" are filed under "T" instead of whatever letter comes after that. I'm used to using iTunes, which simply ignores the word "the" and files an artist name according to whatever letters come after "the". For example, songs by the artist named "The Beatles" are filed under "T" in both Rhythmbox and Banshee, whereas in iTunes they're filed under "B". Is there any way to change this?
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 Banshee for my music and video collection because it works and looks much better than Rhythmbox in my opinion. The only thing that refuses to work (correctly) is the audiobook-feature. I have all my audiobooks (different formats - m4b, mp3, ...) stored in a special folder. The subfolders have no distinct order, sometimes it is author/title, sometimes author - title/ and some books even are in my audiobooks root-folder. I have selected the audiobook folder in the banshee preferences but no audiobooks are shown in banshee. I tried changing the selected folder, changing the structure of the subfolders, but nothing helped. The only thing that worked was importing the audiobooks into the music library and take them to the audiobooks-section in banshee using drag&drop. But when I removed them from my music library, they were also removed from the audiobooks section. This can't be the right way, because in that casse the option to select the audiobooks-folder in the preferences would be useless. What is the right (intended) way to get audiobooks into banshee?
My music is stored on a NAS on my home network. I am trying to get Banshee to see my MP3's on the NAS. It looks like Banshee only will support local folders. So, is a sym link (symbolic link) in a local folder be the solution? If so, what's the syntax? I know the basic form is ln -s <dir 1> <dir 2>. Ubuntu's file browser sees the folder as 'smb://192.168.1.200/volume_1/level1/level2/level3/MP3's' I haven't had any success trying to create a sym link to the NAS folder.
Or, am I approaching this totally wrong and can Banshee support the NAS without a sym link?
I am new to linux and you guys do a great thing here.So thank you very much.I have lyme disease and cannot work so there is no way i can buy expensive software so thank you so much. I started with LMMS and audacity,then I figured jackaudio out(sort of)and started using hydrogen and ardour.I want to try other programs like rosegarden,muse,and the looping programs but I cannot find anything that explains how to use or a manual or anything,If it is in plain sight I am sorry.But if you could point me in the right direction i would be greatly happy!
Also I'm sure i am hardly,barely,not even almost reaching the full potential of Linux recording,is their anyone who9 could explain something that annoying?Sorry to be asking so much.I have been a musician and songwriter for over 20 years and due to my illness i never could quite record,but thanks to you guys my dreams are coming true!
I'm having a problem with banshee. It's doubling podcasts. Also it says that three different podcasts have the same size and length as each other(which they don't) Unfortunately I can't download to test them yet as my internets slow till midnight.
In screenshot 1 you can see the podcast doubled when viewing all podcasts. However when i go directly into the Desert island discs feed it only displays one, which is correct(screenshot two)
I'm cleaning up my music library and deleting duplicates and during that process I accidentally deleted the wrong song. Is there some way to undo this process? Banshee gave me no warning, and the trash is empty. I'm assuming there's a command I can use to recover the file, but as I'm a complete noob, I need some assistance.
after upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 banshee does not see my Ipod anymore, which is a nano video 3g one. Rhythmbox works though, gtkpod not. I thought I had to install libgpod-dev and libgpod2, but the second library is not available anymore in synaptic. I have installed libgpod4, libgpod-common, -dev.
so I'm enjoying the new Banshee grid list which is really great, but with just one problem. It displays multiple cover art, so I have a really lot of picture for just one album with various artists. I'd like there to be just one, can it be done?
