Linux mint 15 mate audio preview bug

Postby fredmint on Sat Jul 13, 2013 1:23 pm

Hi,

I noticed a bug with audio preview when hoovering a mp3 file.
Music plays with totem audio preview but sometimes never stop even when no hoovering the file.
I must kill the totem audio preview process to stop it plays.

Have you noticed this ?

I have the same problem and haven't found a solution. The audio preview is a great idea. I would love to use it in presentations when I want to play a quick sound byte instantly. But I can't use it with this bug. So I have turned audio preview off for now. I don't think the problems is in Totem. I uninstalled Totem and use VLC. Same thing happens.

It seems to be a very old bug.
I found this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/240027

Marcrum, How did you turned audio preview off ?

You don't have to use terminal or uninstall something from synaptic to turn off the preview.
At first, I was confused with "THIS" preview thing'y in my first time using linux mint. (BTW, this is my 3rd time using linux mint :) )

You just have to fix the preview selection in caja/nautilus/file manager preference tab. I found this "Trick" incidenttally when I want to turn my main folder view to list mode. :D
Hope this answer could help you :)

Thanks for your help, but I switched to cinamon because of other issue with XFCE version, couldn't connect my bluetooth speaker, audio sink issue.
Mate seems to be less user friendly than cinamon.

was your bluetooth connection already detected and turned on when you try to connect it?

BTW, My bluetooth hardware detected when I started to install it in Windows. It seems my bluetooth hardware was turned off automatically by bios when it didn't get used in a long time.

Well, cinnamon is a fork of GTK3 which is the newest desktop environment Ubuntu (LinuxMint base) used while Mate was 1 version behind it :)
I actually get along with mate when in Mint 13 because cinnamon was laggy in my laptop. Everything change now in Mint 15, I became more like cinnamon than Mate :D (thanks to speed improvement in cinnamon) :D

Thank you, thank you, thank you ...
This worked like a charm on my Lenovo Ideapad P580 with new installation of Xubuntu 13.10

Didn't have Totem but used the removal command anyway, just in case something was installed in the background that I wasn't aware of. Did a sudo apt-get update after your 3 commands ... a reboot to make sure that everything "stuck" properly, and voila ... everything is now working across the board (all sound & video files) via VLC. I don't know why but for some reason Parole does not want to play the sound files that VLC has no problems with at all. I love Xubuntu, but I have to have Caja for my MP3 previews ... :D

PLEASE ... Don't respond to questions with meaningless or thoughtless comments!
PLEASE ... Help others, don't be lazy! Take a moment to mark your post SOLVED if you received a solution.
