Songbird doesn't start because of GStreamer in Ubuntu 9.10

Songbird doesn't start because of GStreamer in Ubuntu 9.10

I have just upgraded my system to Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic). This has apparently broken Songbird. The fix I found on the web (removing libvisual-4.0-plugin, or so) does not work, since I do not have that package installed.

"They gave me a workaround:

For those of you having this problem: you should be able to keep gstreamer-python installed, but start songbird like this (from a terminal):
export LD_BIND_NOW=1
./songbird"

"After upgrading 9.04 to 9.10, Songbird stopped working for me, Network Manager was broken and a bunch of other minor issues.

I decided to make a clean 9.10 installation. Now all works perfect, Songbird works perfectly without any tweaks. So I recommend you to make clean install if possible."
