In a previous question here: Tell Banshee to add covers inside MP3 tags someone told me about the banshee-extension-albumartwriter extension. I am very interested in this extension, but unfortunately I am not able to get it working. Moreover, i want to knowwhen the extension process to the copy ? At file import time, sometimes in a loop every X minutes it checks for all albums, over ?

I installed it from here, I now see it in my banshee preferences, but even after enabling it through the checkbox I am not able to get cover.jpg files in my music directories.

I am running Banshee: Banshee 2.4.1 (2.4.1) according to banshee -version.

Any suggestions, ideas are welcome.

Thanks Manu

... apart from the obvious typo - perhaps you can explain further what the "code" actually does. Thanks. – fossfreedom Aug 25 '12 at 7:49
I already did that and it didn't solve the issue. – Manuel Selva Aug 29 '12 at 8:46
