    Song Info and Song Lyrics (Erland Isaksson) plugins problem

    Hello.

    I continually get to the LMS web interface the following message at the bottom typical of any plugin update:

    Plugins have been updated - Restart Required (Song Info, Song Lyrics)

    However, after the restart, the message is always returned. If I go to the plugins page, and unclick to delete, the restart never removes them.

    How can I safely manually delete this plugin and either run without them, or reinstall cleanly?

    Thanks.

    P.S. Is this the best plugin for song lyrics in LMS ?

    yes, but how to get rid of it ?

    OK. I believe that. But, now that it is enabled on my system, how do I get rid of it? I have tried to disable it in the plugins menu/list, then restart the LMS, but it persists. It will not go away on my system. Is there a directory I can safely delete instead to get rid of it?

    fixed my own problem - in case others run into it, here is how

    I wandered over to here /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins and discovered that the directories for both SongLyrics and SongInfo were owned by root.root. Since all the other folders in this directory were owned by squeezeboxserver.nogroup, I chown to that from root.root. Then when I disabled and restarted, the plugins disappeared.

    How that ownership occurred is beyond me since I never run or change the LMS as root. Perhaps that is related to the plugin problems.

    Anyway, good luck and keep using LMS.

    Well solved.
    Have a look at Music and Artist info - https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...rmation-plugin , it is under active maintenance and enhancement. The opening post gives a good overview.
