Banshee – How to Make Banshee Re-Scan for Cover Art


I restored my banshee db as per this question. My music and listening history shows up as expected, but the cover art is missing, and Banshee won't scan for it. "Rescan music library" doesn't check for cover art. Neither does disabling/re-enabling the cover art plugin. I can't find an option to do this–is it possible?

Best Answer

The covers are stored in ~/.cache/media-art/ You might try renaming the folder to force Banshee downloading the covers again. I haven't tested the solution, so don't delete the folder alltogether.
