I would like to enqueue songs in Banshee from the file manager (LM13 Cinnamon), while it is playing. Is it possible?
If you had a .desktop file in your /user/share/applications that would execute Banshee's enqueue command (if such a thing exists), you could do the regular right-click->open with and choose that launcher. Don't know of a better way...
I made such a launcher (sort of) and pasted the contents here
. If you save it in a text file, give it a .desktop extension and put it in /user/share/applications, you'll be able to select it from the "open with" dialog. You can tweak the launcher yourself. You can make it start playing by adding --play to the Exec line etc. Type "banshee --help-all" in terminal to see the available commands. It's incredibly strange that there's 3 launchers for Banshee and none of them enqueues.

Depends on where you drop. Most of the window is not a valid drop target (go figure), but "Play Queue", for example, is.
I don't use Banshee at all*, so my answers could be horribly wrong
... I just checked what other players are doing and attempted to recreate the effect using Banshee.
Couldn't care less about players making that
much fuss about simply playing the damn file... I enjoy the simplicity of Qmmp instead. You have a play list, you click the song, it plays. No importing, no "now playing", no libraries, no huge window with millions of stuff.
