Audio Preview in Nautilus

Postby elbeto » Tue Oct 23, 2007 9:59 pm

To setup audio preview within gnome and nautilus you’ll want to install the following using your favorite package manager or command line:

sudo aptitude install mpg321 vorbis-tools

These simple packages should give you audio preview when you rest your mouse on an audio file. It should work for .mp3, .ogg, etc.

I think that this feature should be installed by default. It's very cool and useful!

Thanks for the tip. As for installed by default we struggle to get everything in one CD :lol:
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
