    Question Rhythmbox

    Hi guys,

    I'm having some problems with Rhythmbox. It crashes immediately after launch.

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling by

    sudo apt-get remove rhythmbox

    sudo apt-get install rhythmbox

    this did not have any impact on my problem.

    See what errors you get when you start it from the terminal with the command rhythmbox. That may help us to sort out the problem.

    Try removing your Rhythmbox settings directory....
    Code:
    rm -rf ~/.local/share/rhythmbox

    Also, you could start it in debug mode, i.e. in a terminal give the following command
    Code:
    rhythmbox -d

    I started it in terminal:

    rhythmbox

    and got:
    Floating point exception (core dumped)

    got a lot of gibberish, which I think is launch/start up files, ending with:

    rhythmbox

    Re: Rhythmbox

    One more thing guys, not even sure you'll read this after I marked it as solved;


    ~/.local/share/rhythmbox

    what is the full path to this?

    I was looking for it manually, but I can't find it.

    Nevermind, found it using:

    cd ~/.local/share/

    ls -d $PWD/*

    it is:

    /home/user/.local/share/rhythmbox

    ~ is an abreviation for /home/user. It can be used in any context, at least as far as I know.
