Bug Description

I couldn't find any duplicates, though bug 805938 is similar (where Totem was the default instead of Banshee on 11.10).

Simply put, Totem is once again the default music player in Precise instead of Rhythmbox. This can be seen in both the Unity dash and in the Default Applications category of System Settings.

This shows up both on my desktop's Alpha 1 install and the latest Precise daily build LiveUSB on my laptop.

This bug was fixed in the package desktop-file-utils - 0.18-1ubuntu2

desktop-file-utils (0.18-1ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/defaults.list:
    - set rhythmbox as the default music player rather than totem, that's what
      design suggested previous cycle and what most users want (lp: #903388)
    - replace some remaining f-spot default associations with shotwell
