[SOLVED] Sonata (MPD Client) tag editing problems.

I'm not sure exactly when this happened, because I don't edit tags on a regular basis, but sometime in probably the past 2 weeks the Sonata client began glitching out when trying to edit tags on mp3s.  If you edit the tags they become a mix of random language fonts.  Could this be a config issue, or is it a bug in Sonata or one of its dependencies?   I'm really not sure how to tell.   I don't see any other issues in other apps.

Re: [SOLVED] Sonata (MPD Client) tag editing problems.

There is anojther thread here somewhere about the same issue, but with ncmpcpp editing tags changes them to Chinese. It sounds like a bug with the recent taglib update.

No problem. You could file the bug if it hasn't been opened already...

Re: [SOLVED] Sonata (MPD Client) tag editing problems.

I went to the project's page, and found their bug reports, and the developer for ncmpcpp filed a report a few days ago, and it has been confirmed by the developer for taglib, and he said it will be fixed in the next version.

Re: [SOLVED] Sonata (MPD Client) tag editing problems.

Sorry for bumping a solved thread, but could you provide a link to the bug report(s)? I've just been bitten by this bug, but I don't want to open a duplicate bug report if the developer is already aware of it. I looked on both the ncmpcpp and taglib bug trackers, but couldn't find anything with "Chinese" in the title. I'll keep looking, but if you could provide a link, that'd be helpful. Cheers.

Re: [SOLVED] Sonata (MPD Client) tag editing problems.

Ah that's it, cheers guys.

EDIT: And there's a couple of solutions too, brilliant. I'll recompile ncmpcpp before I do any more tag editing.
