    RhythmBox Annoyance (Codecs not found, pop-ups irritating)

    Everytime I open rhythmbox, I get a tone of these dialogues.
    When I click search on any of them, it never finds any of the codecs.
    I'm wondering how I can fix this, or at least turn off the notifications.
    It's quite annoying

    Try installing the ubuntu-restricted-extras package, or if you are using Kubuntu, install the kubuntu-restricted-extras

    ubuntu doesn't support those restricted formats such as .mp3. But download a file called "restricted extras" in Applications -> Add/Remove will solve your problem.

    Codec Problems? You can install Medibuntu. Let NixiePixel guide you through it.

    I get the error:

    Code:
    This application conflicts with other installed software. To install 'ubuntu-restricted-extras' the conflicting software must be removed first.
    
    Switch to the 'synaptic' package manager to resolve this conflict.

    Have you tried Medibuntu yet?

    Run this command in the terminal. If it asks you to say 'yes' to anything, do not, and post the output here.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install

    I see two easy solutions.

    Solution 1: Disable scanning the music library in Rhythmbox, and that will disable the messages, the only problem is whatever music needs the codecs will not play.

    Solution 2: Seems you have no conflicts. Open the Synaptic Package Manager and try to install Ubuntu-Restricted-Extras. That should enable all the gstreamer plugins.

    Do you have any non-music files in the library folder? I've had Rhythmbox try to search for codecs for files that aren't even music.
