gmbrc misses line to activate albuminfo-plugin

Bug Description

The default layout, Shimmer Desktop, uses the albuminfo plugin, but the tab for it remains empty by default because the plugin isn't activated.

The fix is simple, add the line "PLUGIN_ALBUMINFO: 1" here (after PLUGIN_ARTISTINFO: 1):

Tried to enable the plugin.

Gmb then became unresponsive to keyboard and mouse - had to kill it.

I've fixed the freezing problem in albuminfo, the fix is in git.
As to enabling the plugin by default, I'm not sure. You're welcome to do it in the ubuntu package as it uses the shimmer layouts by default. gmbrc.default is intended for distributions to set up the default they want.
I'll think about a smarter fix for layouts that want to use plugins that are not enabled.

I have successfully tested the patch just now in Saucy.
1) The plugin works as expected now
2) No more UI freezing

So the proposed path is to enable the plugin by default for Saucy (as it's part of our default layout) and re-think this implementation (see previous comment by Quentin) for 14.04.

Attaching better, more lintian-clean debdiff.

The attachment "debdiff with fixed gmbrc.default and updated plugin" seems to be a debdiff. The ubuntu-sponsors team has been subscribed to the bug report so that they can review and hopefully sponsor the debdiff. If the attachment isn't a patch, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are member of the ~ubuntu-sponsors, unsubscribe the team.

Here is another debdiff with less focus on lintian and a better description in the patch.

Hi Sean,

Your debdiff fails to apply for me:

asb@asb-laptop:~/Desktop/gmusicbrowser-1.1.10$ patch -p1 < ../gmb_v3.debdiff
patching file debian/patches/fix_albuminfo-plugin
patch: **** malformed patch at line 161: diff -Nru gmusicbrowser-1.1.10/debian/patches/series gmusicbrowser-1.1.10/debian/patches/series

Thanks for your work on this!

The patch is invalid indeed. Could you update it and add a link to the upstream change/commit/bug? Unsubscribing ubuntu-sponsors, please subscribe them back once you do that
