    Last.fm Plugin (Possible) Fix

    Hey all,

    After experiencing a lack of last.fm post-age while listening with Audacious (as it seems many of you have), some googling revealed that the plugin itself has two dependencies: libcurl and libmusicbrainz. On Ubuntu, run a 'sudo aptitude install libcurl3-dev libmusicbrainz4-dev' in a terminal and you should notice your tracks being properly scrobbled (assuming you've enabled the plugin and entered your username and password in preferences).

    Cheers,
    \m/ike

    Then scratch musicbrainz; libcurl must've been the one that did it for me. No harm in having an extra library, I was just happy as hell it started working right ;].

  • Hey thanks for the tip! Only my system did seem to rely on Muicbrainz. I already had the other installed, and when I added the 'brainz it started to work.

  • Aargh! Installed both packages. Still nothing.

  • This is like magic or smth! Last night it just started working. Really wierd. : S

  • I contacted the help desk recently and they said a lot of people were complaining. Maybe it's not your system at all?

    Hope it keeps working!

    the last.fm servers have a tendency to go down a lot.

    When I install with pacman on Arch Linux It tells me to get musicbrainz as well as curl...
