I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and clementine would not launch. I removed it, downloaded the most recent version, 1.1.1, and reinstalled it. It still does not launch. Please help. Thanks.

Here is the output from launching Clementine from the terminal:

  • Are you launching it from the launcher or the terminal? If you open a terminal (control + alt + t) and type clementine, you can paste the output here. – philshem Apr 18 '13 at 15:12

  • Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T).
  • Run the following command:

    rm -rf ~/.config/Clementine

    This will delete the configuration files of Clementine, which might have some corrupt or inappropriate content. Next time you launch it, clementine would reconfigure itself and would probably work properly.

  • Run clementine to check.

  • THAT WORKED!!!!! Thank you very, very much. Please explain what this did. – user72691 Apr 18 '13 at 19:11
