Thread: Audacious will not start 64 bit os

  1. #1

    Default Audacious will not start 64 bit os

    openSUSE 11.3 KDE 4.4.4 64 bit
    Installed Audacious thru Yast2 using the Packman repository [ver 2.4.3-1.pm.1.1-x86_64].
    When I look in the start menu it shows up under Multimedia > Audio Player > Adacious.
    When I try to start Audacious, by either:
    1] clicking on the icon in the start menu
    2] starting it from terminal
    3] typing it from run command

    I can see the bouncing 'a' for Audacious
    It bounces for a few seconds and then disappears and then nothing more happens.
    What could I check to start solving this problem.
    I posted at the audacious forum, but they sent me back here,
    [we do not provide support for binary packages here, sorry. you will need to contact your vendor for support.]
    Google doesn't turn anything up.
    Thanks
    p.s.
    I am using Audacious on my 32 bit system [running openSUSE 11.3 KDE 4.4.4 ] and it works just fine.

    This is what happens when I try to start Audacious in terminal:

    Code:
    dabud@DBD64:~> Audacious
    If 'Audacious' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf Audacious
    dabud@DBD64:~> cnf Audacious
    Audacious: command not found                          
    dabud@DBD64:~> ./Audacious
    bash: ./Audacious: No such file or directory
    dabud@DBD64:~>
    I have tried both upper and Lower case for the 'A' in audacious.

    I am not aware of any other way to start a program in terminal, ./[program] or just type program name.
    Maybe I am doing it wrong?
    Maybe there is something that did not get installed that should have? [dependancy?]
    Is there a way to check that? [dependancies]

    Did you install it before or after the packman repos became broke or unavailable for anything up to a week from last Sunday @ 20:00 CET (see Announcement forum from Home page).?

    If it's missing dependencies, you may have to wait anyway until packman is restored.

    The command I think is
    Code:
    audacious2

    @caf4926 yes I did try lower case 'a' also.

    @consused It was installed before the 20th, but only by a couple of days. [18th]


    @ conram
    I tried 'audacious2' in terminal and it does start the player, with these error(?)s when I close it.
    Code:
    labud@linux-2pci:~> audacious2
    
    (audacious2:3954): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
    
    (audacious2:3954): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
    @everyone

    BUT,

    It still doesn't explain why I cannot start it from the 'START' menu

    OR

    How I would get to be my default .mp3 player

    I was simply using the terminal example to show that I could not start it anyway.
    I would prefer to start it from the START menu or better yet by double clicking on an .mp3 file.

    Thanks
