I have installed banshee, but during the installation something went wrong and now i am experiencing this:

balg@scorpion:~$ banshee

Unhandled Exception: System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'Banshee.ServiceStack.DBusServiceManager' from assembly 'Banshee.Services, Version=2.4.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.
[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'Banshee.ServiceStack.DBusServiceManager' from assembly 'Banshee.Services, Version=2.4.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.

I have tried to remove and purge banshee, delete the config files and then reinstall it, but it didn't help. Can anyone help me?

Thanks, balg

If you run banshee --debug from Terminal, it will provide more output that may help solve the problem. –  michaelms Jun 26 '12 at 12:06
    
Unfortunately i don't get more info with the --debug switch: balg@scorpion:~$ banshee --debug ** Running Mono with --debug ** Unhandled Exception: System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'Banshee.ServiceStack.DBusServiceManager' from assembly 'Banshee.Services, Version=2.4.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.

That's unfortunate. Try logging in as a guest and running Banshee -- that will conclusively rule out anything related to config files in your home folder. –  michaelms Jun 28 '12 at 11:46

I also experienced some non-starting incidents. You could try removing all the configuration stuff, which is stored in the folders /home/youruser/.config/banshee-1, /home/youruser/.gconf/apps/banshee-1

Once I removed them, banshee started without problems. However, I had to configure again some plugins like lastfm.

That's also where Banshee keeps its database of play counts, ratings, and playlists, so you might want to make a backup rather than removing it completely. –  michaelms Jun 26 '12 at 12:05
    
Thank you for the advice but i already tried that and that didn't help. :( –  balg Jun 27 '12 at 5:11
