New & Improved Last.FM Plugin For Banshee

Filed under
Software

An updated version of Banshee’s Last.FM plugin provides better scrobble support and “instant” now listening updates on Last.FM.

The current Last.FM plugin is prone to dropping scrobbles, not being able to update your Last.FM page instantly (has a delay of somewhere around 5-15 minutes) and, worse for me, it requires you to listen to 100% of a song in order to scrobble! Arrgh!

Thankfully this new one alleviates all of the above, scrobbling a track at the 50% point – ideal for those with big collections and not enough time.

Installing it, however, is not for the faint hearted or those scared of screwing up their Banshee install.

All of what i’m doing can be put right with a few commands, but it’s still best to be sure that you want to do this.

Ready? Let’s begin!

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

So basically Bradley Kuhn gave a talk at FOSDEM '17 about GPL enforcement and I was like, wow, it sucks how many companies and people think that enforcing the GPL is a bad idea. I mean, if you disagree with copyleft that's fine (though I personally would argue with that position), but then you should use a suitable license. Like MIT. The very idea that we shouldn't enforce the GPL just doesn't make sense to me because it suggests that the text of the license is watery and unimportant. I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important. It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
