Description Nicola Soranzo 2006-06-07 13:38:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Actually the default application to open when an audio CD is inserted is totem
("totem %d", see /etc/gconf/schemas/gnome-volume-manager.schemas ), but totem
lacks the CDDB functionality. Also in comments to bug #188421 John Thacker says
that Totem is going to remove audio CD support, I don't know if that's true. The
alternative applications are:
1) gnome-cd ("gnome-cd --unique --play %d"), but the --play option doesn't seem
to work (neither the internal preference). In FC4 it was the default and worked
(just tested on an old machine)
2) rhythmbox, but it doesn't have a command line option to start playing a CD
3) sound-juicer ("sound-juicer -pd %d"), it works, but plays only the first
track, then stops (it's not a CD player!).
So I suggest to change the default to gnome-cd and investigate why it doesn't
start playing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In GNOME menu, go to Desktop -> Preferences -> Removable Drives and Media.
Under Multimedia -> Audio CD discs you can find "totem %d" (alternatively see
/etc/gconf/schemas/gnome-volume-manager.schemas ).
2. Insert an audio CD.
Actual results:
totem will start automatically, but track info won't be displayed.

Expected results:
A program with CDDB functionality should start.

This is fixed in F7 and probably also FC6, furthermore FC5 is going EOL, so I
close it as WONTFIX.
