iPod won't connect in exaile

won't connect to ipod

Postby donfrenchiano on Mon Aug 25, 2008 9:01 am
ive got exaile installed on gentoo linux and when i try to connect it to my ipod it spits this ouit in the terminal.

Exception in thread Thread-7:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/", line 486, in __bootstrap_inner
File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/", line 446, in run

File "/home/frenchy/.exaile/plugins/", line 448, in connect
setattr(song, item, getattr(track, item))
File "/usr/lib64/exaile/xl/media/", line 307, in set_title
self.set_tag('title', value)
File "/usr/lib64/exaile/xl/media/", line 222, in set_tag
self.tags[tag] = list(values)
File "/usr/lib64/exaile/xl/media/", line 218, in <genexpr>

File "/usr/lib64/exaile/xl/", line 148, in to_unicode
return unicode(x, default_encoding)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 7: ordinal not in range(128)

testing dbus service
^CTraceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib64/exaile/", line 138, in <module>

It works fine in amarok and automounts when i plug it in. Ive posted in the gentoo forum and in the exaile forum and know one has been able to help me.
any ideas?

me too

Hi all,

doralsoral did you find a solution to this?

I don't have an ipod, but when I try to import my music collection into exaile I get the same error "UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 " about 2000 times - once for every non-ascii character in a title. I'm using gentoo, and I have the unicode USE flag set and en_GB.utf-8 in locale.gen, env.d/02locale, etc.

Sorry to revive an old thread.


exaile, gentoo, python
