I read the first posts explaining the general problem.
But very confident sites like this here :http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/10/bans ... 0-released
Will tell me that will install Banshee 2.90. It doesn't,
Banshee is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded. (the 1 not upgraded is on purpose)
I'm still with Mint 17.1 MATE 64 bits. Haven't updated to 17.2 yet, I'll wait a little while before doing the upgrade.
I'm bamboozled, I'm able to install newer versions of stuff that isn't available through the basic repos
(the SVN version of kVIRC) for example, I compiled myself the 4.3.1 version, only sucks I can't do checkinstall with it and create a deb for it, I have to use cmake to build it, and I so detest anything requiring cmake when it comes time to compile something.
I built my own ffmpeg according to an excellent guide. Let's say not having a female partner anymore, and a stockpile of ADD meds made me want to learn learn learn for a couple years, came from afraid of linux to compiling, when required.Although compiling Banshee 2.9.0 is beyond my grasp, I get to a dead-end error where I have never been able to get any help, even on the #banshee chatroom where devs are present. Anyway..that's my issue, if you have Banshee 2.9.0 running, help me (no I'm not asking for an amd64banshee290.deb file, although that would be kind of awesome...Let's say I haven't seen Banshee correctly find the BPM of a song correctly since well, my first Linux install, Ubuntu 11.10, 12.04 didn't want to play nice with gnome classic so I switched to Mint afterwards, I think it was Mint 13 then. Alright, I said enough.
Anybody here has Banshee 2.90 running on LM17.1 MATE 64 bits?
