Scrapen "OFDb" lässt MediaElch abstüzen

Passwort, 27 days ago


Einen nicht gefundenen Film wollte ich nachscrapen (also die rote Wolke ganz links oben), als ich OFDb gewählt habe, läuft der Kreis nur noch und nichts passiert mehr. Kann zwar den Dialog schliessen und einen anderen Film anklicken, doch dann kommt immer noch das OFDB Menü und der laufende Kreis. Auch wenn ich ME beende und neu starte.

Wie kann ich das abbrechen? Nutze Linux Mint 18.3 64 Bit und MediaElch 2.4.2.


Danke & Gruss,

    Thanks, but this doesn't help me. I'm not using Windows like written.

    And if I search in /, I only get a CSS file.


    And why won't this problem be removed If I remove ME ans reinstall it?

    Yes, I have seen that you are a Linux user.
    That's why I put the second link.
    User archer96 uses Linux and speaks German.
    And he indicated the page with information about Linux.
    As I understand it, this page must be outdated, and the configuration files on Linux are no longer in the indicated folder.

    MediaElch stores its settings in the usual places depending on your OS:
        Linux: ~/.config/kvibes/MediaElch.conf

    Temporary files, caches and the internal database are also stored in the default storage locations depending on your OS:
        Linux: ~/.local/share/data/kvibes/MediaElch/

    I thought this would make it easier to solve your problem.
    As I am a Windows user, and I use the Portable MediaElch, I do not know how I can help more.

    Thanks, now I have found it and I could fix the problem.

    Great. Let me know if it worked.
    And, if possible, explain how you solved it.
    So other Linux users will be able to enjoy their experience.

    So, for other linux users, here where you can find the MediaElch configuration file:

    Ubuntu/Linux Mint
     - Config file: ~/.config/kvibes/MediaElch/MediaElch.conf
     - Temp. Images / Database: ~/.local/share/kvibes/MediaElch/

    I've pushed a fix for this to the MediaElch GitHub repository. See:

    It might take a while until Daniel releases a new version. But if he does, this bug will be fixed :-)


    Note that OFDb does not work. I've contacted the maintainer of through Facebook two weeks ago (because I couldn't find any eMail address on but I got no reply, yet.

    My bugfix has been merged and a new MediaElch version is now available in the latest nightly builds (for donators). :-)
    OFDb does not work, yet. But at least MediaElch does not crash anymore.

    In version     05.04.2018 10:02 ?

    Well, I hope so :-)
    At least on my Windows machine that I use for testing, MediaElch does not run into the infinite loop anymore (it does in version MediaElch-win-2017-26_11-11).

    So, yeah. It's not really a crash but the bug made MediaElch unusable unless one deletes the configuration files.
