Hum, it’s strange, I can’t find this error of translation. :$ Is it really in the package « ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu » ?

Found ! In the package « ubiquity-slideshow-xubuntu ».

Actually, "fichiers multimédia" is correct as "multimédia" is already
a plural form.

However, it can be changed to "multimédias" to close the bug and avoid
new reports.

In my humble opinion, it would be better. ;)

Only you can write in the case entitled « Current French » ?

Yes I think it would be better too.

However, I am not sure to understand your question about "current french" ?

I meant : who can wrote in the case « Current French » ? Indeed, I only can propose a suggestion, not write in this case.

I also fixed the 'des vos fichiers' into 'de vos fichiers'.

However, there is another problem: the string is so long that it makes 2 lines and the last word is above the 1st line. We should find a shorter translation so that it fits in 1 line only.

What about "Profitez de votre multimédia" or "Profitez du multimédia" ?

It is not the only slide to have the 2 lines crossing problem. Why not asking for the size-font to be reduced and/or the line-height to be increased ?
Your shorter suggestion is good.
As the english is "Enjoy your media", the translation could be "Utilisez vos médias" as well.

The text under this title is refering to gmusicbrowser who can only play music. Perhaps we can avoid the use of "multimédia" here who is all kind of media (music, vidéos, photos, ...) and translate it differently like :
 - Devenez mélomane
 - Redécouvrez vos musiques

ok, i validated a short one. But there may be better. Please add your suggestions on : https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/+source/ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu/+pots/ubiquity-slideshow-xubuntu/fr/+translate?batch=10&show=all&search=profitez
We'll then choose the best one on the ubuntu-l10n-fr mailing-list.

@seb: i see you already reported Bug #985818

@yoboy : I thought exactly like you but in fact we should only translate the original text "Enjoy your media" because these tranlsations can be used in others contexts.
Maybe a good solution is to adapt the original text with the background : Listen to music!
