So... I was having some trouble with Banshee and I decided to uninstall it. I tried to install it again but now when I click to open, Banshee doesn't open. I thought that the problem could be broken packages, or missing plugins, but it seems the problem isn't this. Does anybody know what to do? = /

Please try adding the Banshee's stable PPA:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa

Or from the unstable PPA:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/banshee-daily

Update the repositories:

 sudo apt-get update

NOTE: Please add only one PPA.

Next, please remove all banshee packages and configuration files:

sudo apt-get remove banshee* --purge

Install banshee:

 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install banshee && sudo apt-get upgrade
