banshee

Hi I’ve just installed banshee 1.6. But the problem is that I cant find it anywhere. It’s not in krunner, menu or terminal. Where it can be? thanks

how did you install it?

usually if installed by YaST/Zipper it will just be there…

in the menu > multimedia > audio player (or something like that)

did you get an error message while installing…

OH, i see 1.6 is not a normal openSUSE repo…i doubt i can help you…

tip of the day: if you want a stable, usable dependable system stick
to the normal repos…if, on the other hand you want to experiment
then go ahead…but, don’t expect everything to work right…

Ive installed it with yast, Ive also tried one-click-install, and there was no error.And its not there.

did you have banshee 1.4 before you started this?

very strange, open a terminal, type and enter these, one at a time:


banshee --version
which banshee
ls -hal /usr/bin/ba*
echo $PATH
cat /etc/SuSE-release
zypper lr -d

then you could copy/paste them into your reply

for last 3 months , I havent installed any banshee.

pison@linux-c21o:~> banshee --version
If 'banshee' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf banshee

sorry for the language Ano is YES, and Nie is NO

as far as i can see banshee is NOT installed!!

and WOW…i am surprised that your machine even boots…with all of
those repos enabled!!

i wonder if you are a professional beta software tester with many
years of Linux experience…OR if you overlooked the several
different places that it is recommended to … well, read here, for an
example:

IMPORTANT: Note repositories are in essence file servers on the
internet containing applications, drivers, codecs, … etc … in this
case, for openSUSE. and as a new user, when setting up your
repositories by following the guidance in that page, initially set up
only 4 repositories (repos). Just 4. No others. None! Those 4 are OSS,
Non-OSS, Update, and Packman. Likely the 1st three (OSS,Non-OSS, and
Update) are already in place and you only need to add Packman. Please
note that adding other repositories can cause compatibility problems.
You may add others when the time comes when you learn how to solve
problems that may arise from having others. Until then, stick to only
the 4 repositories. One may also have to briefly add other repos,
install an app, and then remove the repos (for example for installing
a graphic driver, or installing an updated alsa sound driver). Once
those 4 repos are setup, one can go to YaST > Software > Software
Management and change the “filter” to “search” and do searches for
specific applications for installation.

cite: http://tinyurl.com/ya9845m

so, can you “solve problems that may arise from having other” repos??

if you know what you are doing, and understand the problems associated
with ignoring the advice in the cite, and you WANT to live on the
bleeding edge then you need to say so, and NOT do what i’m about to
suggest–and if THAT is your decision then you need to get busy FIXING
your sharp edge system and figure out how to put banshee on it, otherwise:

then,. you need to open YaST and go in and disable all but the
following repos:

11 non-oss
14 packman
17 updates
25 oss

NOTE: i am not at all certain what you have installed and what may be
be uninstalled or broken by this procedure…so, proceed at your own risk:

then, open a terminal and do these, the following one at a time:

NOTE: some of these may take many minutes of downloading the correct
software for a stable 11.2 system…do NOT interrupt it once started,
let it run until the prompt reappears…


su -
zypper ref
zypper dup
zypper in banshee

if all went well, you should now find the banshee version tested for
openSUSE 11.2 installed (if that is 1.6 or not, i do not know) and in
your menu, where it should be…

good luck!!
