Description Tassilo Horn 2009-05-30 13:51:19 UTC
I use media-sound/quodlibet-2.0-r3 and installed some plugins:

root@thinkpad> paludis -q quodlibet-{notify,autorating,wikipedia,cddb}
* media-plugins/quodlibet-notify
    gentoo:                  3316(~) {:0} 
    installed:               3316* {:0} 
* media-plugins/quodlibet-autorating
    gentoo:                  3316(~) {:0} 
    installed:               3316* {:0} 
* media-plugins/quodlibet-wikipedia
    gentoo:                  3017(~) {:0} 
    installed:               3017* {:0} 
* media-plugins/quodlibet-cddb
    gentoo:                  3198(~) {:0} 
    installed:               3198* {:0} 

Unfortunately, none of them appears in the Music > Plugins.  They're installed in:

% ls -R /usr/share/quodlibet/

events  songsmenu

quodlibet-autorating-3316.pyc  quodlibet-notify-3316.pyc
quodlibet-autorating-3316.pyo  quodlibet-notify-3316.pyo

quodlibet-cddb-3198.pyc  quodlibet-wikipedia-3017.pyc
quodlibet-cddb-3198.pyo  quodlibet-wikipedia-3017.pyo

When I start quodlibet, there's no warning/error concerning plugins, too.

% quodlibet 
Initializing audio backend (xinebe)

  try: return old_import(module, *args, **kwargs)

The Help > Output Log viewer doesn't show what's broken, too...
Comment 1 Tassilo Horn 2009-05-30 14:10:46 UTC
It seems that quodlibet looks only in ~/.quodlibet/plugins, so one should symlink /usr/share/quodlibet/plugins.  Maybe the plugin ebuilds could tell the user to do so.

Another way would be to install the plugins like the quodlibet homepage states, e.g. svn co them to ~/.quodlibet/plugins.  I've done so and it works flawlessly.  So maybe there shouldn't be ebuilds for plugins at all.  Of course, then there's no dependency tracking, but on the other hand tracking each plugin separately is not too easy to maintain...

I've fixed all the plugins that media-plugins/quodlibet-* has in Portage. They all show up in Quod Libet now.

Oh yeah, wait like an hour before syncing.
Comment 4 Tassilo Horn 2009-05-30 16:45:32 UTC
Thanks for the quick fix, Samuli.
