Rather than deleting all your banshee settings (and database) you can just clear your plugin settings by running

cp -R  ~/.config/banshee-1 ~/.config/banshee-1-backup
rm -rf ~/.config/banshee-1/addin-db-*

That also creates a backup... Just in case.


Banshee config files are in /home/yourname/.config/banshee-1. You can remove this folder to sre-enable default banshee config, but it will suppress your library, you will have to re-scan your disk once you launch Banshee.

  • Thx man :). Now Banshee runs correctly.

in the config.xml, edit the line with clutterflow in it to say 'false'.

I fixed the issue myself by just uninstalling clutterflow from Synaptic Package Manager, but I think editing the xml is probably a more elegant solution. I only just discovered the xml file now while trying to find a setting for the internet radio buffer.
