Media player called: "Listen"

Hi

I have come across a media player called "listen" has anyone used it before or going to turn it into a pacman package?

I think it is upto version 0.4.2 at the moment.

It's a great music player big_smile  A real competitor to amaroK in terms of features.

I just wish I could find an xchat script for it  :idea:

Listen rocks!

Tried it yesterday and will stay with it

yeah i installed it too yesterday but it does not want to update my library when I add some folders to my music folder (even with update library  roll). Besides that it has no support for daap music sharing.
Me stick with rhythmbox-cvs for the moment.

I have the same problem; solution anyone? :?

Here's the console output I get when running Listen and immediately trying to add a 'kingsOfLeon' folder to the library:

OIL: ERROR liboiltest.c 368: oil_test_check_impl(): function fbCompositeSolid_nx8888mmx in class composite_over_argb_const_src failed check (1.67772e+07 > 100) outside=0

/mnt/silo200/tracks/kingsOfLeon
Nothing to add

It seems that 'No DBus support' is the problem, but I've got dbus installed...

Do you have a dbus session running, either with you wm or with the applications (dbus-launch listen) ?

My output is different, but the result is quite the same tongue

I tried that but no joy; I launch gnome with 'dbus-launch' anyway to get round related problems (if I don't then eg. Epiphany complains about not being able to find the 'message bus').

I'm determined to find out what's wrong, because this player looks like it's worth the trouble. If anyone resolves the problem, post it here, and I'll do likewise *goes off to investigate*.
