Last.fm plugin on Rhythmbox 3.0.2: Fail!


The newest Rhythmbox comes without any plugin, zilch, cero.
So my beloved activity of scrobbling is on pause, at least from the lappie (still doing it at full blast on the Nexus 7, tho...).




Tried to install the plugin by hand, got the package here specifically this one.
Untarred the package and then...

Created the directories:

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension
sudo mkdir /usr/share/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension


And then copied the files:

cd ~/Desktop/rhythmbox-plugin-lastfm-extension_0.2.orig/lib
sudo cp * /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension/
cd ~/Desktop/rhythmbox-plugin-lastfm-extension_0.2.orig/share
sudo cp -R * /usr/share/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension/


But it failed... Will keep testing.

That plugin will note work with RB 3 - it needs a bit of love and attention to update it to Python 3 and RB 3 API standards

- project is here if you wish to fork and fix

Thanks, dangermouse!
Will take a look, but I don't have a lot of hope on myself to get things on the right direction.
