    okay, now it's not playing anything. I'm thinking of doing a hard reinstall, see if that fixes it. But I want to make sure this is weird enough for that first.

    EDIT: D'oh. The speakers were uplugged. Posted too soon. But I'm still considering a fresh install because I can't rip to flac. I'm on 64-bit, if that makes any difference.

    What is that custom key in the screenshot? Try removing that.

    Also, can you play a flac file using gst-launch0.10?
    Code:
    gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=<filename> ! flacdec ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! pulsesink
    Oh, sorry, it's an encoding issue, not a decoding issue. :\

    That last one is a profile I created after the other one stopped working. I'm not sure how to delete the thing, but I deleted all its keys.

    Also, I can play flac files in Rhythmbox, but when I tried that command it gave me an error; maybe I typed it in wrong?

    Code:
    self@samadhi:~/Music/Sonny Rollins/Without a Song - The 9-11 Concert$ gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=<01\ -\ Without\ A\ Song.flac> ! flacdec ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! pulsesink
    ERROR: Pipeline doesn't want to pause.

    I just had this problem on Lucid Lynx, so I'll add my solution in case any one Googles this.

    Apparently Rhythmbox checks the following gconf setting to populate the list:

    system -> gstreamer -> 0.10 -> audio -> global -> profile_list

    In this list, cdlossless was missing. I have no idea how that happened (something about ejecting the CD while rhythmbox is ripping), but entering it back in there solved the problem.

    cdlossless is present on oneiric. How ever still no flac listed in rhythmbox.
