Bug Description

* Impact
the keybinding in the menu are wrong

* Test case
open the rhythmbox control menu and look at the keybinding associated to play/pause, it should be "control-P", check that action actually works

* Regression potential
the change is only a label change in the menu, check that it matches the control

Thanks for reporting this issue and help in making Ubuntu better.

I have seen that in the last version of Rhythmbox Control-space is not stated in the help for this functinality, but Control P is (play/pause). So this seems to be deprecated and marking as invalid. Please mark the status back to "new" if you think this is still an issue.

Then the menu should reflect this new shortcut. Currently it is still indicating Ctrl+Space.

If this is not a bug, at least this is misinformation and the menu should be fixed.

For now I'll reopen the bug. Should I file a new one instead?

Yes, you are right, this looks like a bug in the menu entry.

summary: - CTRL+Space does not work to play/pause
+ Rhythmbox "Control" menu states that Control-Space controls play/pause,
+ but actually Control-P is the shortcut

I tried it, but it tells about an unsatisfied dependency:

gir1.2-rb-3.0

and it doesn't install.
