    Banshee Won't Shut Down Properly

    Hello,

    Whenever I close Banshee by clicking the 'x' in the upper left-hand corner; the player moves to the next track and keeps on playing, just without a GUI. I had this problem in Rhythmbox as well. I'm also having the same problem with Software Center.

    It certainly looks like the UI/Window Manager is not always sending the application 'kill' signal to the running process. I'm currently using Gnome 2.x / Ubuntu Classic. I haven't tried this in Unity yet; but I suspect I will have the same problems there as well.

    Has anyone else had this problem; and is there a work-around???





    Thanks Hannibal

    Yeah, that is an odd bug (design?), if you pause first and click the x it will shut down.

    It used to be that you can click quit in the tray icon but there is no tray icon in Unity unless you whitelist the application.

    Thanks for your reply,

    Here's what I guess is happening. I think, based on the behavior I've observed, that the UI/Window manager 'is' probably sending "a" kill signal, but not the correct one with a high enough priority; so that the kill signal that gets sent get's interrupted by a process with a higher priority, and then just goes to sleep indefinitely. I think a way of checking this would be try it in a variety of window managers. That would either isolate the problem to a specific window manager; or point to the Linux kernel. I suspect this is not an Ubuntu problem per se... I've also read that historically the Linux kernel has been developed without the benefit of a versioning control system. I don't know if this is still the case; but if it is, it's a disaster waiting to happen....

    I have been noticing a higher level of CPU activity than normal and I attribute it to Banshee running in the background. I have to "kill" Banshee in order to stop it.

    Did any of you find a fix for this ?

    Or do I have to launch a terminal and do killall banshee everytime I want to close it :/

    This threads a bit old, probably should of been closed.
    Anyway this isn't an issue, purely design.

    If you close the window (X) while playing, RB, Banshee window will exit but the app will continue on, accessible from thru sound menu
    If you close the window (X) while paused the they will quit

    To quit while playing only "Quit" from the app menu will actually do so (or Ctrl+q
    "Quit" from the unity quicklist is mis-named, should be "Exit"
