    Ryhytmbox "fingerprint" obtain song info functionality not working in 14.04

    The "fingerprint" functionality of the Rhythmbox LastFM plugin worked perfectly in 12.04. The installation instructions are here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/17198...t-in-rhythmbox

    I've followed these instructions in 14.04, just as I did in 12.04, to no avail. I'll note that I have a clean installation of Trusty Tahr, not an upgrade.

    Here is what i'm seeing when trying to enable to plugin: http://min.us/i/bg32LQJoiDiUX

    Does anyone currently have the "fingerprint" Rhythmbox plugin working in 14.04, or know of a alternative? I'm just trying to have Rhythmbox (or an equivalent) identify track automatically for songs and albums.

    update: I removed the Rhythmbox plugins and reinstalled using this repository http://xpressubuntu.wordpress.com/20...-the-easy-way/ with the same results

    I have to imagine others are having this problem as well. Identifying track information should be a pretty straight forward function. Always worked without any issues in 12.04. I'd be open to using another application if it ships default. I think Banshee also has/had this function standard.

    Or maybe the better question is, can anyone confirm that the LastFM plugin works for Rhythmbox in Trusty? Again, here is what I get, after installing the plugins as per here and here:

    I've also tried using Picard to fingerprint songs as detailed here http://musicbrainz.org/doc/AcoustID
    With that, I receive the following error:

    E: 140310312318784 11:29:17 Fingerprint calculator failed error = No such file or directory (0)

    I've got Python 2.7.6 and (i think) Python 3 installed as well. Not sure if the Picard error is stemming from the same problem that Rhythmbox is having. If not, disregard, I don't want to complicate this unnecessarily.
