Description Chris Evans 2000-10-01 18:43:32 EDT
This occurs if I launch xmms from the GNOME main menu, OR if I launch xmms
from a launcher button (created from right-click on the GNOME main menu).

My loving hand-crafted playlist is nuked, and I am presented with an "Open
File" dialog.

Testing.. can I update this bug today?
Comment 2 Chris Evans 2000-10-02 14:33:46 EDT
Ah superb, I can.
Cause of vanishing playlist is the fact that xmms is launched with "xmms %u".
Chaning the launch command to just plain "xmms" and the problem is fixed.
However I guess the "%u" was there for a reason? If you don't have a playlist,
then the "Open File" dialog is useful to newbies, as it offers an easy entry

This will be fixed in 1.2.3-2, one way or another.
It's changed to %F.
Comment 4 Chris Evans 2000-10-18 18:32:40 EDT
What is the %F supposed to do?
I changed my xmms launcher to "xmms %F" and it still wastes the
playlist and shows the file dialog.
What am I missing?

Dunno. Someone else changed the desktop entry to that. ;)

I'll have to find out.
