I'm using Banshee 188.8.131.52 and it's refusing to add my music.
I've tried choosing both "Import Local Folder" and "Import Local Files" and each way it'll show as though it's importing the files in the bottom left hand corner, but alas, it doesn't show up in my list of artists, or anywhere.
I've tried a COMPLETE removal of Banshee through synaptic, and reinstalled, but still no dice.
I ran Banshee through Sudo, and it's able to add the same files, and they show up. Yet, I don't like doing it this way, as all my other songs/settings are gone.
