View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.04 - Rhythmbox not working

Just tried to open Rhythmbox, and it wouldn't open up. Went to the terminal and typed 'rhythmbox' and received the message, "error while loading shared libraries: libtotem-plparser.so.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I then went into Synaptic Packet Manager, and I found that I already have "libtotem-plparser17" installed. There wasn't a "libtotem-plparser.so.12" in Synaptics.

Any ideas on how I can fix this problem?

Here's a temporary hackaround, tho as of yet, I'm not able to get the portable music players plugin to work.

Open a terminal

run this:

sudo cp /usr/lib/libtotem-plparser.so /usr/lib/libtotem-plparser.so.12

rhythmbox will at least run like this.

Again, not sure whether this will cause other problems. I've only been messing around with it for 10 minutes or so.

Do you know if there's a bug report open about this?

Thank you that worked.

Could you explain what occurred? I understood you copied the libtotem-plparser.so to the folder. But not sure what else happened.

Not that I know of, I don't know how to check though.

Basically it was looking for a non-existent file. What we did was copy a newer version of that file to the location it was looking for the older one. Although I'm peeved that I can't get my iPod working with it. :(

I tried your advice and get the error:

cp: cannot stat `/usr/lib/libtotem-plparser.so': No such file or directory

When I try to start in a terminal I get the error:

Any suggestions?

This is bizarre. My rhythmbox is working fine, so I decided to see what libraries it's using using, see if I could throw some light on it for you guys..

According to my installation the version of libtotem-plparser is as below -

libtotem-plparser.so.17 => /usr/lib/libtotem-plparser.so.17

Which suggests that your Rhythmbox is looking for the wrong version of the library.... Is your Ubuntu installation an upgrade from a previous release?

I did the online upgrade to 10.04, however, the file you list is in the folder you suggest. I still get the error I previously listed.
Maybe I should do a complete remove of Rhythmbox and re install it. What do you think?

Yes, try doing a reinstall of Rhythmbox - it certainly looks like the problem is with Rhythmbox itself, rather than another part of your system..

sudo apt-get purge rhythmbox
sudo apt-get update
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox rhythmbox-plugins

The dpkg and -f command shouldnt be necessary, but considering you are having issues with a package, I list them just to be safe. After you run these commands, ensure that rhythmbox is version 0.12.8. :)

I had tried to re-install through Synaptic Package Manager, with no luck. I have since removed it using Ubuntu Software Centre and then re-installing it, it now works!
Cheers for your help.

Reinstallation with Synaptics Package Manager worked for me.

Purge and re install via terminal worked for me as well.

Cheers
