Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456919
when a sound is selected with the file chooser in g-s-p, make sure to default to /usr/share/sounds if that dir exists

Summary says it all.
When you manage to say all that in the subject, it means it's too long.
But the problem is that we use XDG_DATA_DIRS. Which one of the directories
should we select? Or should we force using $(datadir)/sounds?
Since you add only /usr/share/sounds to the shortcuts list, not all
$XDG_DATA_DIRS/sound, it would seem logical to open the file chooser in that
The first part of XDG_DATA_DIRS perhaps?
I guess it would even be OK to hard code that to $(datadir)/sounds since if XDG_DATA_DIRS is not set (wich it usually is not) it would default to that dir anyway (plus /usr/share/local)
The default for g_get_system_data_dirs() is:
- when XDG_DATA_DIRS isn't set:
- when set, well, all bets are off.
I'd hard-code it to $(datadir)/sounds myself...
Yeah /usr/share/sounds is the only sane default.
Since that is the only place where a newly installed system will have sounds...

Set a default directory
We use whatever we managed to insert first as a shortcut folder for the default directory. Not tested.
Fixed in 188.8.131.52-6
