    Smile Re: Totem crashes whenever i play mp3 files

    Why not just use Banshee (if in Gnome) or Amarok (if in KDE) to play your MP3 files? And really if you load both desktops (gnome and kde), you can play either application in either desktop. Did you know that not every program works in every desktop configuration and when you already have more than one option for playing MP3 files, I would stick with the ones that are known to work better. I don't really know anyone that recommends Totem for playing MP3 files as a general rule. This is just my opinion of course and others may disagree.

    Thank You,

    @ caf4926

    Installing the codecs did not help,guess there is no codec problem,the software itself may be buggy

    I tried preferences for one last time while making this post and turned off the "GOOM" Visual effect and viola it works now,no more crashes,I should have guessed this sooner.The player crashed only while playing audio files and not while playing video files like avi.

    Also the other visualizations are working well

    Thanks all for the replies,issue resolved

    @ caf4926's You are welcome.That was my intention.This is just the community atmosphere that i like with opensuse.This was absent when i was using windows.

    I had the reverse - I could play mp3 in totem but banshee crashed on start.
    I ended up taking the easy way and deleting all the hidden .g* files and everything worked on next login.

    @whych

    I have basic question about linux/openSUSE

    Can we safely delete all the hidden files under our /home/<UserName> folder whose name starts with a dot or "." without causing any complications other than losing application related setting.
    Is there any chance that these files will contain any library files ?

    The only real hidden user data files are te .evolution and .mozilla folders. You can safely delete all the .g* files and folders relating to gnome without a problem. All that happens is that the next time you login a new set of default files is loaded.
