Tagging Bug?
« on: October 24, 2012, 19:31:23 »
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and my music is located on a NAS device which is mounted in the default Ubuntu music folder. I am using Gmusicrowser 1.1.9.

When I do any tag related tasks in Gmusicbrowser I literally have to them do them twice every time. I have tried leaving more time after the edit but it simply doesn't write anything to the tag.

P.S. Been playing around some more and it seems the problem doesn't occur with MP3 files only with my FLACs.

I'm not aware of any bug that could cause that.
If you launch gmb from a terminal, it will print a line when writing tags, saying whether it re-write the whole file, or write the change in-place (it depends if there is enough place to write the tag or not). You could check to see if it happens only in one of the 2 cases.
Also after writing the tag, did you check if the timestamp of the file was modified, and if the file was different (do a checksum of the file with for example md5sum) ?

Thanks for your reply.

Had a look at your suggestions and found that when tagging "appears" to fail, nothing is written to the terminal, however, the time-stamp is updated. GMB doesn't give any indication in the GUI that the tag has been changed until I tell it to re-read the tag.

In a nutshell the tags in flac files are being written but most of the time the library isn't reflecting the changes until the tags are re-read.
