I've neither installed, nor upgraded, any packages for a couple of days, yet today Rhythmbox is reporting that it was 'unable to activate plugin Desktop Art.' It worked before I left the computer (at around 03:00), but when I restarted this afternoon it either couldn't or wouldn't.
I presume couldn't, I don't think my box actively resists my expectations. While I understand there could, potentially, be any number of reasons for this, I was wondering if there's a way to find out why it can't be activated? Or, of course, if anyone knows of a workaround to re-enable one of the few plug-ins I find to be essential.
Possibly this might be fixed by simply upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10, but I'd rather know what's happening now, than ignoring it and praying.
The only dependencies I could find are the following:
- python 2.5 (or higher), currently I have: 2.6.5,
- gnome-python-desktop, currently locating this package in Synaptic.
