After update of Gnome to 3.6 and Gstreamer, Miro no longer starts. Maybe there is a problem with policykit or consolekit removal.

Additional info:

More than one user is affected:

package versions:

gstreamer 1.0.2-1
gstreamer0.10 0.10.36-1

I have the same problem (using KDE).

I'm looking into this but haven't found yet why 'from _gst import *' just hangs...

Any idea what update (or set of updates) exactly cuased this?

Ronald, I received a very similar bug report about nauilus-sound-converter:  FS#32467

@Jan: Any idea?

Downgrading webkitgtk2 1.10.1-1 to libwebkit 1.8.3-1 solves the problem. I think it's probably caused because webkitgtk2 uses gstreamer 1.0, but miro uses gstreamer 0.10, and loading the two libraries in the same process causes conflict.

Okay, thanks for the pointer. I'll look into it if I can make some compat packages if I have more time.

I'm changing webkitgtk2 to use GStreamer 0.10 instead of 1.0. Reason behind this is the fact that applications still using GTK2 will probably also still use GStreamer 0.10 or the other way around.
So far the only package that makes an exception to this rule is Banshee, which we patched to compile with GStreamer 1.0.

Please try new webkitgtk2.

Miro works well with webkitgtk2 1.10.1-2.
