Problem with Banshee installation


I'm running Slackware 14.2 x64. I'm trying to run banshee on my system and took following steps to install it:

1) Install slapt-get
2) Edit /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc and add
Code:
 SOURCE=http://schmatzler.de/my_slackbuilds/banshee/:OFFICIAL
3)
Code:
slapt-get --update
4)
Code:
slapt-get --install ORBit2 avahi banshee banshee-community-extensions boo cracklib dbus-sharp dbus-sharp-glib gdata-sharp geoclue gio-sharp gkeyfile-sharp gnome-disk-utility gstreamer1 gst-plugins-base1 gst-plugins-good1 gst-plugins-bad1 gst-plugins-ugly1 gst-libav1 gtk-sharp gtk-sharp-beans gudev-sharp lame libgdiplus libgpod-sharp libimobiledevice libpwquality libunique mono mono-addins mono-zeroconf soundtouch taglib-sharp taoframework usbmuxd webkitgtk
The package installs without any errors, but when I try to run it via command line, I get following error:
Code:

I googled about the exception but didn't get any helpful info I could work with.
Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

Looks like he doesn't recommend banshee anymore due to a lack of interest from the developer and that some aspects are broken. He suggests switching to rhythmbox.

He hasn't done any updates to the packages since summer of 2016, so it could be an issue with a Slackware update breaking something (although, this is not a frequent occurrence on stable releases of Slackware). Or it could be an issue with some of your currently installed 3rd-party packages conflicting with banshee or its dependencies.

Turns out I hadn't installed the 32 bit libraries on my system and it was what causing this error. After adding multilib capability Banshee starts without any errors.
