Caja sound preview won't quit

Postby 0x2620 » Sun Sep 10, 2017 1:50 pm

LMDE2, Mate, 64-bit.
Caja 1.18.3

I usually disable sound preview, but I didn't this time. I moused over a music file, causing the preview to start. It's been looping ever since.

in CAJA go to Edit > Preferences > Preview > Sound Files ... select never or local files which ever suits your system

Yeah I remembered to do that after it crashed, but the crash is the uh more interesting problem.

you can go into .config/pulse and DELETE everything except the presets folder if you have one then reboot. you can also go into .cache and also DELETE everything except the sessions folder and reboot

Why is pulseaudio the only process that's high priority?
