XMMS Playlist not displaying tags correctly
« on: June 09, 2021, 10:00:13 PM »
I am using TC12.0 X86 frugal install. XMMS-1.2.11 installed to play ballroom music tracks. XMMS plays the music ok, but I cannot display the ID3 tags correctly.
Ctl-p opens Preferences, click on Title tab. In the Title Format field I set to display the track Title with %t, but the Playlist displays
a y with 2 dots above (ASCII 152) plus a vertical line with a half circle one side (ASCII 232) plus the 1st char of the filename.
I get the same faulty display with %p for Artist, %a for Album, %c for Comment.
What does work is %f displays filename; %e displays file extension; %F displays file path.
Leaving the Title format field blank displays the filename minus the extension.
In the attached screenshot:-
Track 1 is with %t specified.
Track 2 is with %f specified.
Track 3 is with %e specified.
Track 4 is with blank specified.
I would really like the %c to work as the Comment contains the type of dance the track is for.

Hi Richa Rd
Sounds like it might be a locale/font issue. See if this post has anything useful:

Hi Richa Rd
You could also try starting  xmms  from a terminal and see if any errors pop up while you use it.

Also, this looks relevant:

There curaga suggests installing  glibc_gconv.tcz.

Installing glibc_gconv.tcz fixed my problem. Playlist now displays perfectly.
Many thanks,
