Re: [Banshee-List] Compilation Album Artist

For a compilation album you will see one album in the 'album browser' (which makes perfect sence :-). However, in the 'Track artist browser' you will stil see all the different Track artists for this one album (again, this is logical since the browser is about TRACK artists). For the moment, there is no 'Album Artist browser' in Banshee. A great GUI solution exists for this but is not implemented yet (Gabriel once made a mock up of it and if I find the time I will start working on it, don't expect anything very soon from me though ...)

Tick the check box ¨Compilation Album Artist¨ to enable the text box , and enter the name of the Artist (e.g. Various Artists) that you would like to see this track grouped by.  A whole album with this set would I imagine make the album appear in the Artists browser under the ¨Various Artists¨ artist.

However, as of 1.4.3 it doesn´t and therefore I assume that either my
understanding is wrong or there´s a bug.  What I see is that the Track
Artist still appears in the Artists Browers, and that the Album doesn´t
appear under ¨Various Artists¨.

Assuming I don´t know what I´m doing, can someone explain to me how this is
meant to work?

Sounds like you have it close to right.  Did you make sure that the
checkbox is ticked (and the same value entered) for all the tracks in
the album?
