Songbird On Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

After upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) i noticed that Songbird is not running anymore. After starting from command-line there are some error messages related to gstreamer.


(songbird-bin:6139): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstrawparse.so': /usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstrawparse.so: undefined symbol: gst_video_format_new_caps_interlaced

I found a solution here.

Songbird ships with it’s own gstreamer codecs which conflict with the ones shipped with Karmic. All you need to do is to remove the gstreamer libs shipped with songbird:

cd /path/to/Songbird/lib/ && sudo rm -rf libgst*

Enjoy Songbird on Ubuntu 9.10!
