    Default Problem running Songbird 1.0


    Hi, I am using openSuse 11.1 (KDE), which I really like. I would like
    to use Songbird. I can install it without any difficulty but when I go
    to run it, I get the bouncing icon for a while and then it stops without
    launching the application - any ideas? Many thanks, d

    Try to run it from terminal (i remember i had problems with Songbird
    because i didn't have some gstreamer packages, i'm not sure if it was
    fluendo mp3 but try this one but it's definitely something with
    gstreamer package missing)

    Thanks, yes, the problem is with gstreamer, though I am sure I have this
    installed. I use xine with Kaffeine so that I can watch tv, but need to
    associate songbird with gstreamer, but don't know how to do it. d

    Well i know KDE relies more on xine than gstreamer, what You need to do
    is to install every possible gstreamer package (good, base, bad and
    ugly, also try mp3 from fluendo and gstreamer). That should help.

    I remember having the same problem as You have. I'll try to install
    Songbird and look into it for Ya.
