(Yet another) rhythmbox problem


I can't get rhythmbox 0.7.1 or 0.7.2 to work. It will install without any error messages, but when I try to play a song I get two error messages "Device "/dev/dsp" does not exist" and "Could not pause playback".

I have tried using the xine and gstreamer back ends but I get the same error message in both cases. Reverting back to 0.6.10 makes the errors go away, but there are some key bug-fixes in 0.7.2 that I really want to take advantage of.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

When I run gstreamer-properties and change the default sink to ALSA, I get the
error message:

There is no element present to handle the stream's mime type application/x-id3.

Mindbender, that means you probably don't have the appropriate decoder for mp3 installed yet. My default install of Unbuntu did not have it. Just install the mad plugin that should fix it although you might just want to install all the plugins if you are a mediaphile.
