Runnnig Fedora22 Workstation, Gnome Music 3.16.2.

When I launch Gnome Music, it presents a blank window with 'No music found' splashed in the center! There is also a line that promises 'The contents of your music folder will appear here.'

Wierdest! There is gb of music in ~/Music folder and Rhythmbox and every other music player can see it and play it without any difficulty.

What is happening? How do I set it right?

Can you run gnome-music from a terminal and tell us what the (error)message is? Thanks.

I do have the same issue and posted a questions here. There are no answers yet. One thing you wanna make sure is that tracker (the indexer and search in Gnome) is properly working. can you find your music by typing an artist into gnome's search field?

@Florian I could not find music by typing artist in Gnome's search field. Gnome -> Settings -> Search -> Files -> Search Locations -> Music was off. I have just turned it on. Now I CAN find music from Gnome's search field. But Gnome Music's behaviour remains the same. 'No music found'

@deshmukh: I guess, I do have a similar/same issue in Fedora 21. Tracker can find music on my system (located in ~/Music) but gnome-music does not. Can you run Gnome Music by typing gnome-music into a terminal window and tell us what the output is?
