XMMS runs differently with different users


I was messing around with a few things in xmms source code, and when i went to recompile i have this odd problem. Everything builds/installs fine, but when i run xmms under non root it runs the old version. if i do sudo xmms then it runs the version i want. anyone point me in the right direction as to why this is happening?

You may have it installed in two different path's or locations. Perform a search for xmms and it will probably show you two different locations, where one user may have it in one path, the other in another path. Maybe for instance

User1 is loading from /usr/bin/xmms
User2 is loading from /usr/local/bin/xmms

im sorry i wasnt clear enough. i can do this as non-root: /usr/bin/xmms or sudo /usr/bin/xmms and it gives me the messed up version. if i su root, and then run /usr/bin/xmms it gives me the right version, this is why i am so confused.

run this:
Code:
rm -rf ~/.xmms
logged in as the user for whom it is not working. It will delete any config settings and start you from scratch

bulliver << thanks much that fixed it. now i just wish i could figure out how in the hell i did that in the first place. i had actually been looking at the configs in the .xmms folder but i couldnt see what i had changed; guess i'll have to keep looking. Thanks!

No prob.

I was just wondering, what changes did you make to the source? Or were you just poking around?

i wanted to change the randomizing function. the one that shuffles your playlist. the current one sucks. i changed that and i wanted to change a bunch of hotkeys but i couldnt figure out where that part was. somehow i must of changed some of the configs i guess mistakingly b/c it was acting all crazy.
