caja - no mp3 hover-preview

Post by a z » Sun Oct 21, 2012 9:30 am

on my laptop, caja does the mouse-hover-preview-mp3 thing beautifully. on my wife's dell inspiron 4010 laptop, not so much. the icon looks right when you hover, just no sound. i can open the same file in audacious or whatever, and it plays fine there. no other sound issues.

i should also mention, both our laptops are lubuntu 12.10 (with caja installed from maya repo).

checked alsamixer - nothing muted.

had my laptop sitting side-by-side with hers and (in synaptic) search/compared things like mpg, mp3, lame, gstreamer, etc, to install anything i might've missed on her machine. made everything identical...
any thoughts?

For support on lubuntu or MATE, perhaps visit their forums instead? This forum is for support on Linux Mint, which you aren't using :wink:
