Importing a cd in rhythmbox does not work

Bug #78431 reported by Damiano Dallatana on 2007-01-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
rhythmbox (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

steps to reproduce:
1. insert an audio cd into your cd-drive
2. open rhythmbox
3. go to your cd on the left panel
4. select "copy in your library" (do not know whether it says like that, in Italian is "Copia nella libreria"
5. nothing happens...

looking from the terminal, as I try to copy the cd in the library, rhythmbox reports an error:
(rhythmbox:8341): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: RBLibrarySource impl_paste called when gconf keys unset

and when I open rhythmbox from the terminal, it says
(rhythmbox:8341): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to start mDNS browsing: Il servizion MDNS non è in esecuzione
(translated: the MDNS service is not in execution)

Version informations:
rhythmbox 0.9.6 on Ubuntu Edgy Eft 6.10, it-IT l10n.

Thank you for your bug. Could you run "rhythmbox -d" and note to the bug what is printed when you try to copy the CD?

"rhythmbox -d" should print a lot of thing, there is nothing else about the problem?

"rhythmbox -d" prints out too many things.
I just tried again saving everything on a .txt file.
The only strange thing I found that _could_ be related to this is:

[free_dbus_error] rb-generic-player-source.c:716: finding audio player udi: dbus error: No property info.capabilities on device with id /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_1106_571_ide_0_0

However, I attach a .tar.gz archive containing the whole log file (originally 1.8 MB). The only action I tried was opening the cd and trying to copy it...

(obviously, I am at your disposal for anything you could need...)

means that the library location is not set. We could certainly handle this
case better."

Does it work if you set a library directory?

Damiano Dallatana (damidalla) wrote :

yes, the only problem was the unset library directory.
So, it is not a bug. But it could be handled really better by rhythmbox!

Thank you very much indeed, sebastien! consider yourself hugged...
