Bug Description

Binary package hint: liferea

If I enter 'totem --enqueue' for mp3 files, it works till I restart liferea. After restart it's only 'totem' without parameter.

I am using Ubuntu 10.04

Thank you for your bug report.

I have tried to reproduce it by trying the following on my 1004 system:
Installed liferea version:

I clicked on a blog entry with an attached link to an mp3 file
I right click on the file, select "Open Enclosure..." and enter "totem --enqueue"
I close the application
Restart the application
Select tools->preferences->enclosures and the entry mp3 | totem --enqueue is displayed correctly.

Could you please provide the lifrea version you are using and a more precise description of how to reproduce the bug.
Thank you!

I tried it the way you did and the bug didn't occoured (same version here). But if you edit an existing entry (Preferences) and add parameters they will disappear on the next restart of liferea.

Thanks for your work!

I can confirm that changes made to the enclosing via the preferences are not saved after program restart.

In my case the original entry was "totem --enqueue" and I could not via the preferences menu delete the "--enqueue" flag so that it would not show up after a program restart.
liferea version 1.6.2

On 1010 and liferea version 1.6.3 right clicking on mp3 attachment and selecting default enclosure program does not show up in the preferences either before or after program start.
