my banshee doesn't start anymore. i tried to start it over the terminal just to see if something is broken but all the terminal gave me was this:

moere@SAMSUNG-NF110:~$ 

so i have no clue what to do. i already tried:

sudo apt-get purge banshee; sudo apt-get install banshee

and after that removing

~/.gconf/apps/banshee-1
~/.cache/banshee-1
~/.config/banshee-1

but nothing helped me out. muinshee is working fine ... any suggestions?

update: i tried using sudo banshee and it worked

`moere@SAMSUNG-NF110:~$ sudo banshee

but afterwards i tried it the "normal" way again and it resulted the same as in my first try using banshee in terminal. so it it's still broken.

Wow. I thought I was the only one to experience this problem. For me clearing ~/.cache/banshee-1 worked. –  RolandiXor Oct 8 '11 at 17:13
    
yes, i found some solutions 5 min. ago telling me to do this. But as you can see i already tried this and it changed nothing :( –  Monton0815 Oct 8 '11 at 17:15
    
I reported a bug on launchpad and on their bug tracker, and got no reply on either :/ –  RolandiXor Oct 8 '11 at 17:17
    
ok maybe this helps: running banshee in terminal using sudo worked ... after that i tried only banshee again and nothing happend again... –  Monton0815 Oct 8 '11 at 17:23
    
have you by any chance installed the ATI proprietary driver version 11.9? Cause I downloaded and installed that and banshee crash on start. In fact I don't think 11.9 is working at all, so i switched back to 11.8 and things worked fine. –  hansioux Oct 8 '11 at 17:47

What Monton0815 did worked for me:

  1. Log on as the Guest user
  2. Start Banshee
  3. Log out
  4. Log in to the user account where Banshee isn't working
  5. Start Banshee
  6. Happy Days
