    No sound in Rythmbox while other players work fine...

    Why is that?
    What is it I can do to fix this and make Rythmbox play again?

    In general, sound works fine on my computer except for this program. I hope you won't tell me not to use it

    If you have Ubuntu 9.04,
    your Rhythmbox should have the default Pulse,
    as I remember.

    Try System -> Preferences -> Sound
    Change everything to Pulse

    I cannot say more exactly, because I have already removed
    this evil from all my boxes.

    What will work for sure is to install Pulse control.
    With this tool you can move the sound stream
    where you want with one click of the mouse.

    Delete all rhythmbox local configuration

    N.B you are lost everything of your playlist and library infos

    Delete These folders

    /home/yourname/.local/share/rhythmbox

    /home/yourname/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox

    /home/yourname/.cache/rhythmbox

    yourname =your username


    Then re-start rhythembox.... and check it
    --- I am what I am because of what we all are ----

    Yeap... It worked and now Rythmbox plays for good.
    I will have to check all the other programs to see if they still work, though
    I will be back if I face any problems and you can take this as .... a threat :lol
    Thanks anyway...

    Interesting solution!

    You may better type on terminal

    gconf-editor

    and fix the configuration.

    Or edit other files.

    And before deleting, you may better make a copy.
