Apparently, the root issue is rhythmbox does not implement the root mpris spec correctly. The Desktopentry prop on the root interface should contain the name of the desktopfile minus the .desktop suffix. Rhythmbox exposes the full path to the file.

same here. I noticed last week while patching rhythmbox that it no longer builds in natty because of that same plugin:

ayatana-plugin.c:8:26: fatal error: Indicate-0.2.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[4]: *** [ayatana-plugin.lo] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/tmp/buildd/rhythmbox-0.13.2/plugins/ayatana'

so i postponed what i was doing until the package is in a better shape.

This bug was fixed in the package rhythmbox - 0.13.2-0ubuntu4

rhythmbox (0.13.2-0ubuntu4) natty; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/24_report_desktopentry_correctly.patch: just report the
    base name of the .desktop file, and not its full path so rhythmbox
    correctly appears in the indicator-sound menu. (LP: #691556)

Hey, I still see this problem in Natty-final 7th of May...?

Should I switch the status back to 'unfixed' or something?
