Description of problem:
gnome-cd does not display cddb information.
At least not until the cd player applet if first run, the gnome-cd
cddb works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: CDs would play but cddb info not displayed. First CD
attempted is somewhat obsure so I repeated with several top-selling discs.
Expected Results: cddb info displayed in player.
1) Running from command line gives the following:
** (gnome-cd:8812): WARNING **: Could not contact CDDB server
2) cddb works for sound-juicer and grip.
3) If I use grip on a CD, it saves the cddb file to ~/.cddb. If I then
open gnome-cd the cddb info is displayed and the same file appears in
~/.cddbslave (I'll be opening another bug for these to share a dir).
Sound juicer doesn't have this effect.
4) Looking for other cd apps to try, I added the cd player applet to
my panel. It doesn't display cddb info, but...
5) gnome-cd cddb info now works! Even if I put in a CD never
previously loaded on this PC.
And if you remove ~/.cddb it stops working again?
Sorry for the delay.
~/.cddb seems to be a grip only dir. I didn't have this dir as of step
5) above. ~/.cddbslave is relevant.
At one point last week I was deleting the .cddbslave directory and
having the problem. I had to use a 'fresh' cd and no ~/.cddbslave. But
sometimes this scenario did work. Always worked if .cddbslave present
and/or if the CD had been inserted previously.
So tonight I created some new user and inserted some new CD. Track
listing d/l successfully each time.
I considered it closed.
Thanks for the update.
