http://forum.getnightingale.com/thread-491.html

We've had three reports from people with Kubuntu 10.4, Ubuntu 11.10 [my OS] and Ubuntu 12.04 where the Songbird does not see mp3 files when it scans and is unable to play OGG files.

When we try to get OGG files, we get the following errors:


(nightingale-bin:11452): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_object_ref: assertion `object != NULL' failed

(nightingale-bin:11452): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_set: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(nightingale-bin:11452): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_bin_add: assertion `GST_IS_ELEMENT (element)' failed


We all have gstreamer installed by default with the K/Ubuntu distro.

Here is a listing of all the gstreamer packages that come with

Ubuntu 11.10: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywor...ection=all

Ubuntu 10.04 (should be the same as Kubuntu 10.04): http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywor...ection=all

Ubuntu 12.04: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywor...ection=all


I'm thinking that there might be a descrepency between the packages, libraries or install locations of gstreamer that was used in the devellopment of Nightingale and the packages, libraries and install locations that Ubuntu have setup.

I'm putting up a poll on this thread where people with Ubuntu can confirm whether they are having this problem with nightingale or not.

I've used Debian/Ubuntu for the past 2 years or so, but I don't know if any of the developers use any Debian based OS. I'm going to see if I can get a build working in Ubuntu 12.04, but it'll have to wait until school gets out at the beginning of May. I personally am using Linux Mint 12 (32-bit) and LMDE (64-bit), which are based on Ubuntu 11.10 and Debian Wheezy/Sid and I have not had any problems, but I'll see if I can get Nightingale to work in Ubuntu 12.04, when I have some time. I can't promise that I'll solve the problem, but I promise to try my best.

I think I have figured it out...

Edit:
Was going to test on 32 bit ubuntu VM but I'm pretty confident this will work. Going to put in a pull request after this build finishes.

This issue is fixed at github, so this thread is [closed].

Please note that the issue is not fixed in current public release versions. Grab the ubuntu testing build instead.
