Bug Description

Binary package hint: quodlibet

The Last.fm plugin of Quod Libet reports the following error in Karmic:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/quodlibet/plugins/events/lastfmsubmit.py", line 12, in <module>
    import lastfm.client, lastfm.marshaller
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/quodlibet/__init__.py", line 126, in import_ql
    old_import("quodlibet." + module, *args, **kwargs)
ImportError: No module named lastfm.client

The module referred to could be lastfmsubmitd which contains /usr/share/pyshared/lastfm/client.py but installing this package will set up a deamon to do last FM submission. It is not clear to me why the deamon is needed if the python interface should fix it all.

Installing lastfmsubmitd fixes the problem, but also enables a daemon to be started up which is not used.

This bug was posted because of confusion between the audioscrobbler plugin and the last.fm plugin.

The audioscrobbler plugin is probably obsolete as audioscrobbler moved to last.fm. It now seems that the only way to use last.fm with quodlibet, you need to install the submission deamon from lastfmsubmitd. This seems to force the use of a single system-wide user account for last.fm, which is nolonger set up from within quod-libet.

Changed in quodlibet (Ubuntu):
