Last modified: 2008-07-26 02:11:00 EDT
Description of problem:
The Music applet crash
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add to panel
2. Choose Music Applet
Crash with this error,
The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_Music_Applet".
Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?
Adding the applet to panel
I am having the same problem with this version of gnome-applet-music after a
recent update of the packages. Note that the applet was working earlier after a
F7-F9 upgrade. I am guessing that one of the dependencies were updated in a way
that broke the applet?
The ~/.xsession-errors log is not very helpful:
** (gnome-panel:3274): WARNING **: panel-applet-frame.c:1285: failed to load
System exception: IDL:Bonobo/GeneralError:1.0 : Child process did not give an
error message, unknown failure occurred

I just noticed that gnome-applet-music was one of the packages updated, so, no,
it is probably not one of the dependencies but more likely the package itself.
Rhythmbox (my music player) was also updated. It is working fine by itself.
This bug is due to a packaging error.
I noticed that the difference between version 2.3.0-2.fc9 which did work and
version 2.3.1-1.fc9 which doesn't work is the location of the widgets.so file.
When you start /usr/libexec/music-applet on the command line, you get the message
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/libexec/music-applet", line 26, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/musicapplet/applet.py", line 38, in
ImportError: No module named widgets
and this is because in the older version widgets.so was colocated with the other
python files in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/musicapplet, whereas in the
newer, non-working version, the file is located all by itself in
/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/musicapplet where it can't be found since the
interpreter only looks in the directory where the rest of the python files are
located (which is still /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/musicapplet).
Thanks for the bug report and helping find the error so quickly. I'll try to get
this fixed ASAP.
I believe I have tracked this down to upstream BZR revision 187; and am running
some mock builds now to test it.
