Exile won't run

Post by off220 »

my favourite player isn't working

Code: Select all

off220@lmde / $ exaile
INFO    : Loading Exaile
INFO    : Loading settings...

(exaile.py:27901): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: 
Trying to dispose object "sink", but it still has a parent "bin1".
You need to let the parent manage the object instead of unreffing the object directly.

    return ExtendedPixbuf(gtk.gdk.pixbuf_new_from_file(filename))
TypeError: pixbuf_new_from_file() argument 1 must be string, not None
Is there a way to fix it??
Happy LMDE user.

It has been a reported problem for LMDE. I don't believe there is a fix yet. If you do a quick search for "exaile" in the LMDE subforum, you'll see a couple threads detailing the same issues.

Yes, several users reported problems with Exaile in LMDE.

For now, I'm using Banshee.

Due to this bug, i replaced it with Guayadeque -surprisingly good.
Also Jajuk is a decent choice if you can deal with a power hungry application (java... :twisted: )
