error about xine, when totem-backend ran
Last modified: 2008-04-11 08:18:52 EDT
Description of problem:
I've installed totem-gstreamer and I want to be sure, that totem will use it:
$ sudo totem-backend -b gstreamer
Error: The xine backend was not found! Please check your totem installation.
but totem-backend script seems to dislike gstreamer :) .
Jeremy, that's never a blocker. Just a bad error message, which should mention
that there's nothing to switch, as GStreamer is the only backend installed.

Stewart, could you please verify that the script still works as expected with
It should avoid confusing error messages when only one backend is installed.

Better error messages, support single-backend installs
I reorganized the script's logic a bit, in any case (root or non-root) sets
some variables, checks to make sure arguments are valid, then takes action. It
should work with single-backends, too.
Stewart, feel free to commit.
Thanks - I've commited, but not tagged/built... The final freeze was this
morning so unless we want to make an exception this will come as a zero-day update.
