Bug Description

Binary package hint: banshee

With Banshee installed into a clean Karmic install, it just displays a little orange X icon next to mp3 files. It can play oggs with no problems so I presume this is because it doesn't have a plugin for this format. Unlike other Ubuntu programs, it doesn't give me a dialog to install the missing software.

Have you actually tried to click (or double click) on the song and then see if banshee shows any dialog? My banshee setup is not working otherwise I would have checked it myself.

Yes, I tried that. Nothing happened: no message, it just doesn't
play. I was hoping there would be a dialog at least telling me the
error, better yet leading into installation. In previous releases you
did get a dialog, and I think you got a new section in the sidebar
labelled 'errors'.
