    Default Weird kaffeine problem


    I got small problem with Kaffeine. It doesn't want to run while
    previewing video files WITH kaffeine works without problems?? I have
    Packman repo active, downloaded w32 codecs and xine codecs. Kaffeine
    doesn't want to run from terminal. I have mplayer also and it works with
    no problems. I tried reinstalling kaffeine, didn't work. I tried
    removing config files kaffeinerc, didn't work. I don't know what to do
    anymore.

    Can you start kaffeine from a konsole, typing: ::kaffeine::
    and post here the errors that you get.

    Also, please provide the output of:
    ::rpm -q kaffeine
    rpm -qa xine
    rpm -qa ffmpeg0::

    Nothing happens when i type kaffeine in terminal, no errors nothing,
    just empty terminal after typing it.

    rpm -q kaffeine kaffeine-0.8.7-2.7

    rpm -qa xine gives no output

    rpm -qa ffmpeg0 gives no output

    I have ffmpeg installed.

    OK, I'm bad. ... I meant to type instead (asking you to post the
    output from):::
    rpm -qa | grep xine
    rpm -qa | grep ffmpeg:lease, can you type the above two
    lines and provide the output.

    Note, your kaffeine version is NOT packaged by Packman. This could be
    part (but not all) of your problem.

    rpm -qa | grep xine

    libxine1-codecs-1.1.15-44.pm.2
    libxine1-pulse-1.1.15-44.pm.2
    xinetd-2.3.14-129.35
    phonon-backend-xine-4.1.3-4.1
    libxine1-1.1.15-44.pm.2
    amarok-xine-1.4.10-100.pm.2
    libxine1-gnome-vfs-1.1.15-44.pm.2


    rpm -qa | grep ffmpeg

    ffmpeg-0.4.9.16240svn-20081219.pm.2021

    Looks like i have KDE backports kaffeine, that may give problems?
    What's the point of that repo if it gives so many problems omg...

    Repos such as KDE backports should be used VERY SPARINGLY. ONLY use if
    there is a specific app version that you ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE. The
    backports can cause problems (as you can see). So avoid them.

    If you look back over my posts, I recommend ONLY 4 repos: OSS, Non-OSS,
    Update, and Packman. IF one wishes to add more, they had better know
    what they are doing, and how to solve them, as problems can happen (as
    you have now learned).

    I disabled KDE community and backports repo, downgraded kaffeine and
    it's still not working, are there any logs i could look to see where the
    problem is?

    Should i delete some config folders or files in order for them to
    recreate when running kaffeine?

    I'm not at a linux pc right now, but there could be other files to
    remove (I'm guessing) other than just kaffeinerc. Do you look under
    .kde/share/apps (or something like that) for a kaffeine directory ? If
    there is such a "beast" rename it to kaffeine.bak and try to restart
    kafffeine.

    Are you certain you picked up the Packman kaffeine and not the
    Novell-SuSE-GmbH kaffeine in what you called a "downgrade" ?

    Well i ticked the packman version and made downgrading "update",
    confirmed i have this version by disabling packman repo and checking
    available versions and yes i have packman repo now but it looks like KDE
    backports repo made uite a mess leaving me with much more "upgraded"
    apps. Need to downgrade everything and i'll never touch KDE backports
    repo again
