Ubuntu 12.04 : some tags are ignored
I recently installed audacious 3.4.3 as an alternative to foobar2000.
Unfortunately, some fields aren't either recognized or not correctly displayed :
- Album title : the field isn't retrieved ; instead, audacious displays the folder containing the files
- Genre : not retrieved ; nothing is displayed
- Track number : not retrieved ; nothing is displayed.
All those fields exist and are correctly displayed by foobar2000. They are embedded within the wav files and are correctly displayed, for instance, with vlc.

- Category set to plugins/sndfile
- Status changed from New to Closed
- Target version set to 3.5.1
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
Fixed. Once upon a time, libsndfile didn't support those fields.

After some (heavy and deep) searches, I downloaded everything related to 3.5-1 and did as described there :
for both program and plugins.
After that, I could install the software using the package manager and it actually appears as every correctly installed application, but when I click onto its icon, nothing happens.
The manager reports installed version as 3.5-1, so I can't understand - unless 3.5-1 can't run on Ubuntu 12.04LTS ?
Can anyone give me some tip ?

I don't think the bug may be considered as solved - nor can it be closed.
After compiling 3.4.3 with the updated sndfile.c file, it still misbehaves :
1- The Genre field is now correctly dispayed, but not the Album, nor Track number. For the Album, it still displays the folder's name, and nothing is displayed as Track number.
2- One still can't modify anything from within the track properties box.
I thought it was a matter of Ubuntu version, so I upgraded to 14.04 after cleaning up everything related to Audacious and its plugins, but after compiling and installing again it still behaved the same.
So I cleaned up again and downloaded 3.5.1, but there again the bugs are there. And I can't even try to do anything myself, as the sndfile.c file is quite different from what it was in previous versions.
I'm quite sure it wouldn't change anything however, as I suspect there is some other file in cause there.
I am not a Linux expert - nor a programmer anymore, since I dropped basic in 1990 or so - so it takes me very long to achieve each step.
I know it's holliday and it may take long before you read this, but I hope this bugs can be solved some day.
