Description Rainer Finke 2020-02-18 10:55:24 UTC
I have the issue that Elisa shows only the songs from one folder of my music library even after scanning the music folder multiple times and after removing and adding the library again. As I had in the past already trouble with Baloo, I disabled it. Then after starting Elisa my library showed up just fine.

1. Use default Plasma with Baloo enabled by default
2. Add and scan music library

- Music library is shown only partially

- Complete music library is available

Operating System: Arch Linux 
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.0
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.67.0
Qt Version: 5.14.1
Kernel Version: 5.5.4-arch1-1
Comment 1 Matthieu Gallien 2020-02-20 16:20:46 UTC
Indeed, if tracks are missing from Baloo index, this is a bug not in Elisa.

Anyway, let's add a way to workaround that directly in Elisa.

A under review branch is available with a fix for that bug.
