Help for Using Banshee and Solving Problems

Banshee is a community project, so we rely on each other to be helpful and document problems and their solutions. For Banshee to be able to grow and support a large number of users, it's important that we are clear, concise, and respectful of others and their time.


A list of frequently asked questions (and their answers). To find your answer quickly and to respect others' time by not repeating common issues, it's a good idea to check if your issue is in the FAQ.
