14.04 and later I've checked the clementine 1.2.x dependencies and I can confirm it requires the gstreamer 0.10 plugins and since wma support is provided by the ffmpeg plugin you need to set up the following PPA to enable WMA support for 14.04 and later: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/gstffmpeg-keep sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0....

You can try to install the spotify plugin manually from the clementine repository. You should grab the last blob & libspotify.so files. 1) Close Clementine application. pkill clementine 2) Intall wget to download the plugin. sudo apt-get install wget For 32-bit 3) Create the folder structure for the plugin. mkdir -p -m 775 ~/.config/...

You need to install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, and possibly remove your ~/.gstreamer-0.10/ folder, which is in your user's directory

open your terminal and install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad and/or gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse. you can do that by sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse you can also use synaptic or software centre to install. hope that helps.

The user who maintains the PPA mentioned in those answers also has a PPA exclusively for gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg. So do: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/gstffmpeg-keep sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

I've upgraded Ubuntu to 13.04. XBMC also upgraded and now it sounds as bad as Clementine. Problem solved :-( But, wait! After delving more in the problem, it looks like the guilty is Pulse Audio, the newest Linux sound architecture that promised to solve all of your audio problems. After reading a lot and understanding a little, it looks like that ...

Met same problem in Ubuntu 11.10 with media buttons shortcuts. "Use Gnome's shortcut keys" didn't worked. So I just set to "Disabled" Gnome's shortcuts for those keys. This solved my problem.

Your issues seem to go beyond codec install as clementine should play wav without anything. In any event clementine uses gstreamer0.10 so make sure that these are installed: gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg (don't think the gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly is needed but you could install it) If there is still an issue then try deleting the ....

According to the bug report at https://github.com/clementine-player/clementine/issues/3593 a workaround is to uncheck Save statistics in file tags when possible. A fix was committed in July 2014 so upgrading to a newer version may help as well. If not, maybe download the latest bleeding-edge sources and build them (but be aware that they may contain new ...

On 14.04, clementine is still using the gstreamer0.10 plugins and since ape support is provided by the ffmpeg plugin you need to set up the following PPA to play ape files: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg I tested both vlc and clementine at the same time using this sample file (...

Quoted from Official site Dependencies for Ubuntu Precise (12.04)(if you use newer versions skip this step) New versions of Clementine require GStreamer 1.0 which wasn't included in Ubuntu 12.04. If you get errors installing Clementine you should add the GStreamer PPA as well: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gstreamer-developers/ppa You can download the ...

I've been able to press ctrl+alt+F1 to switch to a console. (By default you can choose to use F1-F6 for a console.) Then just log in and run: unity --replace That restarts all of unity, including the dash. Press ctrl+alt+F7 to get back to the desktop GUI.

There is currently no way to use another player besides banshee with the music lens. In order to have the music lens read from clementine, you would need to write a clementine scope. Help documentation for this is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Unity/Lenses#Creating_a_Scope. There is sample code available at lp:unity-lens-sample, and lp:unity-lens-...

first of all sorry for my English, regarding the icons... I think that those icons are in the original source (no binary) in the "data" folder (tiny-pause.png and tiny-start.png) You should download the source, here is the link: git clone https://github.com/clementine-player/Clementine.git && cd Clementine And here you have a little instructions ...

Create a playlist in Clementine. Then add the following commands into Startup Applications separately. clementine -y clementine -p

Looks like a typo; it should be sudo apt-get remove qt-at-spi This worked for me.

By the way, in my Ubuntu 14.04 (upgraded from 13.10) it seems that there is no apt-add-repository sudo apt-get install software-properties-common Now yes, you can install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg as #1 said: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

Set your player to MTP mode and attach it to your computer with the included USB cable. Open the file browser and then click on the icon for your player (mine says Philips). Once your in the window inside your player hit control h (Ctrl+H) (hold the control button and press the "H" key) to show your hidden files. Right click in the window and select the "...

I would strongly advise against disabling pulseaudio. I'm not sure what a solution for this could be without a little bit more to go on, but I myself tried a variety of "disable pulseaudio" fixes that caused me quite a few system issues. For me, the problem was fixed by tweaking my settings in "Sound" (accessible by typing in Sound via the Unity Launcher). ...

You can take a look at: http://shuffleos.com/4224/expand-scope-of-unity-music-lens-to-rhythmbox-clementine-and-guayadeque/ "You can install Rhythmbox, Clementine and Guayadeque scopes in Ubuntu 11.10 by running following commands in the terminal. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:markjtully/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install clementine-scope guayadeque-...

This cannot be done with smart playlists (yet). Although you can create your own smart playlists, all criteria only match directly to a song from your database. Any comparison between found songs or grouping of matching songs is not possible. At most you can edit the smart playlist for "never played" to order songs by album (of course only the not yet played ...

As I tought, the problem is indeed caused by special characters in the file name or the path. Changing this will solves the problem. A better solution would of course be to make clementine read the special characters correctly, but I haven't found out how to do this yet, maybe it's a bug. edit: I might be this bug. edit2: On second tought, I think it isn'...

That's bizarre. "Ta fête" or "Ta fête", a UTF-8 locale system should be able to open them fine without problems. I just installed Clementine on a fresh copy of Ubuntu 13.10 and test audio files play fine no matter how I altered their pathnames. I know this sounds stupid, but could you try checking your current locale by typing locale in the terminal? I ...

The best way to check if a port is open and listening for connections is using netstat as follows: netstat -ntlp | grep <port_no> so if you want to check if port no 5500 is open and listening for connections, so: netstat -ntlp | grep 5500 If the output is: tcp6 0 0 :::5050 :::* LISTEN - ...

I'd guess that at some point, files in your home directory became owned by root (because of misuse of sudo). Try chowning them back: sudo chown $USER:$USER ~ -R

Disabling Gnome's shortcut keys only works, if the shortcuts you want to use are not define by the Gnome shortcut system, because clementine cannot fetch the shortcuts. Therefore we have to deactivate the gnome shortcuts and go to gnome-control-center keyboard to the tab Shortcuts. There deactivate the shortcuts in Sound and Media which you like to control ...

I don't know about clementine, but both rhythmbox and banshee supports this kind of integration with a plugin. I don't use both banshee, rhythmbox or clementine but as far as I remember I think rhythmbox and banshee have instant messenger integration plugin in their preference. If you can't find it: here is status plugin for banshe here is status plugin ...

Once you create a playlist, select all the songs in the playlist, and right-click to select "Copy Device". I have no idea why it's so hidden. This guy clued me in -- at 6:14 he starts talking about Devices: gotbletu -- Clementine - Modern Music Player - Kubuntu 10.10

Open the preferences dialog box through tools menu. Click on "Music Library" in sidebar of preferences dialog box. Hare you can add more folders to your music library. Clementine will scan these folders on every startup for new songs and will add them automatically to your music library.
