Couldn't display Examples/fables_01_01_aesop.spx

Bug #190489 reported by John McCabe-Dansted on 2008-02-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
totem (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs
Nominated for Hardy by Heikki Sankala

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

On the latest Hardy snapshot, Nautilus reports:

Couldn't display "/home/ubuntu/Desktop/Examples/fables_01_01_aesop.spx".
There is no application installed for this file type

Perhaps this example should be removed from the Ubuntu liveCD? (or speex support returned)

Bah, why does the bug that's 5 months older get marked as 'duplicate'? :)

Copying here the follow-up information from the other bug, then:

speex files should be played by totem, but in hardy the mime type of these files shows up as "audio/x-speex" and totem does not list this as a handled mime type in /usr/share/applications/totem.desktop.

Explicitly opening the .spx file with totem lets it play, as does adding audio/x-speex to the list in /usr/share/applications/totem.desktop and re-running update-desktop-database, so this is entirely a mime type association bug.
