Recover your old playlists

If you updated your gogglesmm installation from version 12 to 13, you’ll see a very clean window and all your old playlists seem gone. Your playlists, however, are still sane. With a simple import script you can recover them easily and avoid extra work with importing your albums again.

Download import_gogglesmm12.py and run

unzip import_gogglesmm12.py_.zip
python2 import_gogglesmm12.py

If you don’t have python2 on your PATH, check your python version with python --version. Chances are that your python is yet version 2.x.

Your new database will be located in ~/.local/share/gogglesmm instead of ~/.gogglesmm.
