XMMS quit a day ago, previously it had been working perfectly. The icon would just bounce and would not start. I did use the auto orphan command and thinking that kludged XMMS I uninstalled XMMS, did a shut down, then reinstalled upon start up using URPMI. I am using the distrib that came with the current version of Mandriva Free - 10.2 I believe. All to no avail - same problem.
Saturday AM I gave it one last try, same as above, used terminal ti start XMMS; it worked perfectly.
As the attached photo shows.
Error msg: Failed to load module "libcanberra-gtk-module.so": libcanberra-gtk-module.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I am assuming GTK is affiliated with Gnome OS. I am using KDE. I have had similar trouble with other versions of XMMS on older versions of Mandriva.
Any Ideas would be appreciated
Current Version Mandriva - Desktop 188.8.131.52-1mnb
is it possible you need to be in root to do this? it is worth a try.
I don't use Mandriva but when running into this type problem, the first thing I do is check and see if ANY version of the lib is present. Check in /usr/lib an /usr/local/lib or you could do:

What's interesting is, I run XMMS on several machines and none of them beg for this lib. Hope this helps...
ln -s libcanberra-gtk-module.so.0.0.4 libcanberra-gtk-module.so
Hi Bower - I rarely log in as root, with the exception of using terminal. Under normal conditions I *should* be able to click on the desktop icon and XMMS should start.
Thank You for your help!.

for a while, then it 'breaks' and will not start. I only run Mandriva and I've had this happen over previous versions of the OS; I guess it's time to try and find an answer. :)
