Re: [Banshee-List] Banshee does lyrics, too!

This is a frustrating problem that I've been trying to sort out.

Many distributions ship things broken-ish - putting in /usr/lib/{mozilla product}/. In your case it seems strange since you have the library symlinked from /usr/lib - the DLL loader should find it as long as it's in (and you've run ldconfig recently).

I've been tinkering around with a shell script that will attempt to locate the library and hardcode the path to it in your Wikipedia.dll.config file, but I haven't attached it in subversion. Basically what it would do is edit that last dllmap line in Wikipedia.dll.config to point to the full path to the proper library.

If you could try for me...edit that last line to say:
<dllmap dll="gtkembedmoz.dll" target="/usr/lib/"/>
and try it.  If this fails, try:
<dllmap dll="gtkembedmoz.dll" target="/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.13/"/> Of course, naturally, this will fail when you upgrade mozilla to a newer version, but it's worth a try.

Another thing is to check if your distribution knows any tricks - peek in the file /usr/lib/mono/gac/gecko-sharp/2.{whatever}/gecko-sharp.dll.config and see if it is anything fancy. That's where I got Wikipedia.dll.config from in the first place, so maybe it might point to some answers for you.

If you try any of this out, please send your testings to the mailing list to help me figure out how to better ship the plugin.

That's great news.

I'm having problems using banshee-wikipedia-plugin on my FedoraCore5
using mono 1.1.15-0.novell.

Exception is thrown saying is not found. But I have
this file in /usr/lib/ linked to
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.13/ So I don't know what's the
problem here.

Here is some more --debug info:

System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the
type initializer for Gecko.WebControl --->

Hey folks!

I'm happy to announce that I've (finally) merged a patch from David
Schneider to the Wikipedia plugin that gives it the ability to fetch
lyrics for the currently playing track.

You can grab a copy of it by checking out the PluginRepository[1] page.

You can see a full screenshot on my log[2]

Now, I need feedback.  This plugin needs a new name as it doesn't just
do Wikipedia queries anymore, and I'd like to see it extended to query
other services as well.  What would be a good name for this?  I'm open
to suggestions :)

The plugin will also now compile out of the box with Banshee CVS HEAD,
or 0.10.x

Also, if you have any good idea of other services that this plugin
could use to query for meta info, drop us all a reply!

Many thanks to David for his hard work on this plugin, you rock buddy.
