Banshee plays one track and closes

Post by mijasdave »

I had been running Banshee 1.5.1 for several months with no major problems until recently. For the last few days, the app will open and will play one track, then abruptly closes. I have just upgraded to Banshee 1.8.0 to see if that solved the problem but it is exactly the same, one track and closes. By the way, I'm running on Linux 8.
Thanks in advance
Elisa

Try to open banshee in terminal like:

banshee
nothing else. The joke is in that you could see&read the output info to get what it caused...

rm -rf ~/.cache/.banshee-1

Did you carefully followed those steps? It's strange to get such error msgs as you did... :?
Then I'd rather try to full uninstall, restart just X (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) and then install it again.

AFAIK the playlist shoud stay in the 'banshee.db.backup'. And u haven't backuped the playlist ? :roll:
BTW I have my playlists as external files (in my other partition) therefore I don't need care much about backups either :)

Power of hindsight is a wonderful thing but unfortunately is about as useless as a waterproof teabag. I don't keep my playlists backed-up on my external drive so i must rely on the wonderful power of my OS to do that for me. To be honest, i only had one additional playlist and don't use ratings so it's not a huge problem, anyway thanks people for your input, begin again.

If anyone arrives here looking for a Fix on Evolution Email "Malformed database etc" go to Ubuntu Forums and use "evolution malformed" that will take you to a fix.
