Hello to all nice developers and users of gtkpod,
since the purchase of my first ipod nano (12.2008) I'm a very content
user of gtkpod. Right now I'm on a LinuxMint "Julia" 64bit (based on
Till about two month ago I was sticking to the official version
(1.0.0-0ubuntu1) supplied by Ubuntu.
Since I was having trouble with the GUI (i.e. it was not possible to
keep the GUI fit on a single compiz cube-surface...) I finally decided
to deinstall the old gtkpod and install a compiled version of gtkpod2
using the git repository.
Everything went fine from the start: I was able to organize my music:
import new tracks, transfer them to the ipod, keep track with changed
playcounts and ratings, etc.
Two days ago it seems like a severe error has occured since I am no more
able to "update from file". I always get an error like "local filename
not available". When I look on the edit pane of my tracks the field "PC
File" usually holding the path to the music tracks is empty right now! I
achieved to import new tracks inside my lokal database and they are
recognized correctly but the connection to the rest of my music (> 18000
tracks...) is definetely lost!
This keeps me quite helpless, because I have got all the informations of
the local database (playlists, ratings, playcounts) but they are
orphaned with no connection to the actual tracks. In my despair I built
a second "new" local database in which I imported all my music again. In
fact the new database is updated by the connected ipod as it seems.
Is there a way to reestablish the connection to my "old" local database?
PS: Right now I removed the git version and installed the deb packages
provided by phantomjinx (thanks for that!)
Sorry for me being so talkative ;-)
