Exaile won't open after install

I’m running 11.2 Gnome and I’ve installed Exaile and its now listed in Yast, but it won’t open. I rebooted and it still would not open.

What am I missing to get Exaile to work?

I had the same error. It looks like some script error on my 64 bit opensuse installation. It turns out the start script has some path errors. I opened in a text editor (as root user) this file: /usr/bin/exaile and made look like this:

 exec python /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/exaile/exaile.py  --datadir=/usr/share/exaile/data --startgui "$@"

Now exaile works rotfl!

Had the same problem with Exaile not start after install.
And i did the same as you did whith the Exaile script and now it works for me too lol!

glad to help. Have fun rotfl!


Did the same but when I try launch Exaile in konsole I get this error

INFO    : Loading Exaile
INFO    : Loading settings...
python: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/gst-0.10/gst/_gst.so: undefined symbol: gst_pad_link_check_get_type

Same error when launching Rhythmbox as well.

I forgot to add that I am using openSUSE 11.3 64bit with KDE. When I try to run Exaile as root I get this error

Sorry for bumping. I was searching solution in meanwhile, without results of course :frowning:

Sorry for the bump, but if people are still experiencing this problem, this might fix it…

A solution for this problem could be found here: Re: [packman] Miro 3.0.3: undefined symbol: gst_pad_link_check_get_type
(for me this fixed muzofan’s problem: Rhythmbox had the same error; make sure all the gstreamer sources are from packman and it works like a charm)

I had same problem when running exaile in a terminal
python: can’t open file ‘/usr/lib/exaile/exaile.py’: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I ran this to locate the file

rpm -ql exaile

When I located the path of my file /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/exaile/exaile.py

I open as root an editor

This was my old destination

exec python $EXAILE_PREFIX/lib/exaile/exaile.py --datadir=$EXAILE_PREFIX/share/exaile/data --startgui $@

I then changed it to

exec python $EXAILE_PREFIX/lib/python2.6/site-packages/exaile/exaile.py --datadir=$EXAILE_PREFIX/share/exaile/data --startgui $@

Exaile now works.
