Rhythmbox menu does not recognize the player state

Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-application

 <mpt> Rhythmbox probably should have "Play"/"Pause" rather than "☐ Play"/"☑ Play" (as I said earlier to vish).

Similarly the menu always shows "Play" , but should rather change to
"Pause" when the player is playing.

Is this really an Indicator Application bug? Banshee has already implemented such a PlayPause button and that is working with Indicator Application without any problems. I reckon it's just a case of implementing it in the application itself.

@Sense : I'm not sure where it needs to be fixed... But when the app indicator is able to detect the player status and change the icon. Why cant it do the same update for the menu item?

Sense Egbert Hofstede (sense) wrote :

Vish: the application specifically notifies Indicator Application when its icon should be changed. It can either change its status to ATTENTION, which changes its icon to attention_icon, or it could change the icon with the set_icon() function.

Banshee itself changes the label and the icon of the PlayPause entry according to its status. I think Rhythmbox should do it self as well.

Here's what I did to test this:

1. Launch Rhythmbox.
2. Minimize Rhythmbox.
3. From the status menu, choose "Show Rhythmbox".
4. Bring another window in front of Rhythmbox.
5. From the status menu, choose "Show Rhythmbox".

What should happen:
3. Rhythmbox is unminimized and focused.
5. Rhythmbox is brought to the front and focused.

What actually happens:
3. Rhythmbox is unminimized but not focused.
5. Rhythmbox is brought to the front but not focused.

I don't think the label for the menu item should change.

Removed the show/hide part from the bug and updated the description with only the play/pause part which mpt mentioned on #ayatana.
