    Question solfege

    I've installed solfege through apt-get install but it just won't open. Here's the output in Terminal (which I can't figure out):

    Code:
    ~$ solfege
    Checking for gtkhtml2... ok
    Solfege will use fakesynth
    /usr/share/solfege/src/mainwin.py:436: GtkWarning: Refusing to add non-unique action '_Rhythm' to action group 'NotExit'
      self.m_action_groups['NotExit'].add_actions(actions)

    IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/crash/_usr_bin_solfege.1000.crash'
    
    Original exception was:

        sourcefile, lineno, func, code = traceback.extract_tb(sys.exc_info()[2])[0]
    IndexError: list index out of range
    Any workarounds?
    Much appreciated.

    Re: solfege

    I just replicated the same error, looks like you've found a genuine bug. Luckily it's already been filed at Launchpad (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ge/+bug/206093) and a workaround has been found:
    I was able to run SOLFEGE with a little trick :

    1) from the console, run solfege --no-sound :
    solfege starts (of course without sound)

    2) inside solfege, do :
    "file" "preferences" "sound setup"

    3) choose a midi setup that returns no error.
    the first choice : "no sound" is the easiest choice !
    On my system, i had to choose "use external midiplayer"

    5) than save the changes, and exit.

    6)Run solfege again from a console, from a desktop shortcut, or from a menu.

    7) Et voila ! No crash, sound activated, enjoy the music !

    I hope this helped!

    Re: solfege

    Okay, I understand to run solfege--no-sound. I thought the console was the terminal, so I typed in solfege--no-sound and the terminal says command not found. So, how do you run it without sound? Thanks.

    I bet you're forgetting the space between solfege and --no-sound.

    Re: solfege

    I cant get sound, dont know about tech issues and new to ubuntu, I downloaded Solfege but get this message;
    "Module not detected
    You should configure sound from the preferences window, and try to use an external midi player. Or try to recompile the program and check for error messages to see why the module is not built."
    then it doesnt 'play' anything.
    Like I said, Im not familiar even with where things are in ubuntu. Please help me with some simple instructions
    Cheers
