That was caused by a missing dep on py3.6gobject, which in turn threw up a bunch of missing runtime *gir deps - I didn't think gnome-music would work out of the gnome desktop environment, so this had been missed.

gnome-music dep file updated

FYI: now gnome-music starts (sort of), shows a box, and can not be used alone; but still some libs missing
BTW, i never used gnome-music, just tried to see which is the offer...

As mentioned, this is most probably because it needs to be run in the gnome environment with various daemons auto-started by gnome-session - at least tracker, but possibly others...

The missing libs you show are optional.

If you're feeling adventurous, start the dbus daemon, run tracker-preferences, choose a music folder, save settings,  check the tracker daemons have started and you might see some music - you might also need to run xdg-user-dirs-update before tracker-preferences.

the important thing is that you had a look over it.
and maybe it can not run independently of gnome (full) environment.

this i tried, for fun only:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus status
dbus is running.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ xdg-user-dir
/home/tc
tc@box:~$ xdg-user-dirs-update

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ tracker-preferences

Ah - using tracker-preferences from tracker(1) would start the appropriate tracker daemons when the settings were saved (I use this on a piCore rygel streamer).

tracker2 does not contain tracker-preferences - I have not yet had to use it outside of the gnome environment, so I haven't figured out how to manually start things.

For completeness sake, in the gnome environment the following are autostarted:
Code: [Select]
$ ps aux | grep tracker
31415 tc       /usr/local/lib/tracker-2.0/tracker-miner-fs
31416 tc       /usr/local/lib/tracker-2.0/tracker-miner-apps
31418 tc       /usr/local/lib/tracker-2.0/tracker-extract
31439 tc       /usr/local/lib/tracker-2.0/tracker-store
..you then have to enable the file types to be indexed in Settings - Search - Preferences [Videos, Music, Documents, Downloads, Home, Pictures].

Then check things work:
Code: [Select]
$ tracker search -m
Files:
  file:///home/tc/Music/aayw.mp3
  file:///home/tc/Music/terminator.wav
  file:///home/tc/Music/Test_-_test1.mid
  file:///home/tc/Music/Video_Games.flac
..and then gnome music will find and play music tracks

I'll add tracker-miners to the gnome-music deps in case anybody wants to try to start tracker manually and mess with gsettings/dconf-editor to enable music file search.

Note ironically, the last time I checked,  at least one of gnome-{documents, music, photos, videos} will only "see" files found in $HOME/{Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos} regardless of where tracker finds appropriate files  :P
