Description Christopher Aillon 2004-10-04 11:30:24 EDT
Description of problem:

rpm -e rhythmbox;
yum install xmms;

Open nautilus and click on an .ogg or .mp3 file, etc.  Nothing
happens.  We need to ship a .desktop file with xmms with the
appropriate MimeType entry.  See
Comment 1 Bryan W Clark 2004-10-04 11:42:09 EDT
It appears to already have the MIME types in the .desktop file...
probably isn't running the desktop-file-utils progs during install.


Since XMMS isn't part of our default install we should transition the
name over to Name=XMMS Audio Player, however we don't need translation
hunting us down for this one so it can probably wait.
Comment 2 Jef Spaleta 2004-10-12 00:18:29 EDT
hmmm i think the mime type list in the xmms desktop file might have a
syntax error. You might have to add application/ogg;  to get it to
show up in nautilus for oggs. 

i just installed xmms from the development tree
and the postinstall script does the call to 
update-desktop-database /usr/share/applications
and I see the Mime-type definition
xmms is not showing up in the right click menu in nautilus for ogg
files as a choice. Nor does it show up in the "Open With" tab of the
file propreties dialog.
It does show up in the wav files as a choice.

Here is a comparison between rhythmbox and xmms Mime types, you might
consider adding more than the application/ogg. I'm pretty sure xmms
can do flac as well even if it does take a plugin.



Comment 3 Colin Walters 2004-10-13 16:43:13 EDT
There were actually two bugs here:
1) missing application/ogg from the redhat-audio-player.desktop
2) xmms calling update-desktop-database /usr/share/applications
instead of update-desktop-database /usr/share/desktop-menu-patches

Both are fixed.
