View Full Version : [xubuntu] Banshee won't close - keeps popping back

August 11th, 2010, 02:00 PM
Hello, everyone.

I seem to be having a problem with Banshee. When I boot up, it automatically starts up, which seems innocent enough. However, I opened up Exaile (because Banshee had this problem of not recognizing spaces in some of my songs' filenames, replacing them with '%20'), and closed Banshee from its notifications icon. It closed, but about 3-5 seconds later its window pops up again. I used Ctrl+Q to quit, but it still came back after a few seconds. I've tried opening up a terminal and typing "killall banshee-1", but still, Banshee keeps coming back.

Even though I restart and not open Exaile, Banshee still keeps coming back when I try to kill it.

Now I'm wondering if Banshee doesn't want to let go and have me replace it with Exaile.

Any solutions and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am having the same problem here, but without using Exaile. If I run Banshee, I cannot kill it anymore. It comes back a couple of seconds after being closed.

Any hints?
