Ubuntu – Banshee won’t open


Hello, world.

My computer turned off while banshee was updating my music library. Now I can't open it. The error says: "found a fatal error. Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation."

Any clues?

Best Answer

Try removing ~/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db (~ means your home folder).
If you don't see the .config folder inside your home folder, press CTRL+H to make hidden files visible, and press CTRL+H again to make them invisible again when you're done.

~/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db is the SQLite database where Banshee stores your music library. When you remove it it will be created again when you start Banshee.
