    Unhappy banshee won't start

    New to ubuntu just getting used to a lot of stuff. Don't really know why but recently I can't open banshee. I have 12.04 and I tried running it in terminal and this is what I got!

    Re: banshee won't start

    Use those hash tags when you want to paste code, so it doesn't fill the whole screen.

    Also, when you're pasting output, be sure to paste your input. My guess is you tried to open banshee by using sudo. Don't do that.

    Re: banshee won't start

    Have you tried opening it up without using the Terminal?

    I simply went to Software centre, removed banshee, then reinstalled. It remembered all my settings.
