Banshee encountered a fatal error

Post by 3lud13 »

OK some background I imported some music earlier today but didnt tell it to import it into a banshee folder just said leave it where it was which is on my windows partition in my itunes folder cause I have idevices which require itunes. Since then have shut down computer and went to load banshee up again and get the error below is the text which appears as Im still new it doesnt make much sense to me and searching places I cant seem to come up with anything the only option I get is close which doesnt work I have to end up force closing it as it wont respond regardless of how long I wait.

I encountered this problem as well but fixed it by uninstalling Banshee, then deleting the banshee-1 folder which is in the /home/.config folder and then re-installing banshee again.

Simply deleting the folder ~/.config/banshee-1 whislt banshee is not running should do the same thing, no need to uninstall and reinstall
