    [SOLVED] XMMS works for root but not for user


    I checked and verified I belong to the "audio" group.

    But command "xmms"=
    Code:
    Message: device: default
    Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
      serial 1494 error_code 8 request_code 72 minor_code 0
    Locking assertion failure.  Backtrace:

    Any help would be appreciated as I prefer XMMS to SMPlayer, the equalizer of which won't work on my system.

    How did you install it? Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling?

    XMMS works for root but not for user-- replaced with Audacious

    To install XMMS, I added its repository to sources.list and used apt. Yes, I uninstalled and reinstalled it several times, resulting in same problem. Anyway, it's OK now as I uninstalled XMMS and installed Audacious and now I'm a happy listener. Thanks.
