Opening mp3 with GNOME file browser fails
Running Ubuntu 8.10
When I double click an mp3 in GNOME it loads Rhythmbox but doesn't open the file. If I double click it again in the file browser it loads it into Rhythmbox that is already open. So to play any mp3's I have to double click them twice to play. I couldn't figure out what causes it. Any ideas?
