    Question Changing file associations to banshee for .ogg files

    Hi!

    I use 0penSuse 11.0 with gnome.

    I want to open .ogg-files by double-click with banshee (0.13.2).
    But when I click on them only banshee opens but does not play anything.
    I can start banshee first and than choose and open the .ogg out of banshee's menu - so banshee can pay ogg-files generally.
    (I can choose rhythmbox/vlc ect. instead of banshee but I like looking at big covers when the music plays...)

    So I think I have to alter the "open with" preferences (associations, bindings) with a right-click on a ogg-file and than choose not the "banshee"-icon but search the right program manually.
    What application/path do I have to choose
    to to open .ogg-files by double-click with banshee?
    Or what command do I have to type not only to start banshee but also to add the ogg-file to the banshee's playing-list?

    Thanks a lot,

    You want File associations which is under desktop settings and under Configure settings in Konqueror among other things.

    Thanks to john_hudson
    for your reply on yesterday evening/night.

    But under gnome I have (by default) installed Nautilus instead of Konqueror.

    In gnome's Nautilus you can change the "open with" preferences (associations, bindings) for all *.xy files with a right-click on a *.xy-file (like described). The problem had been that I could choose there the icon "banshee" for *.ogg files in that preferences but when I click on a *.ogg file only banshee opens but does not play anything.

    I had been asking for a command or a path to a program/database/lib ect. not only to run banshee but also to ad the double-clicked *.ogg file to the actual play list ("Local Queue") in order to play it. Maybe I can find the answer to that question in any/banshee's man-files.

    But thanks anyway: After I had been running a different profile and changed once the "Preferred Applications" for multimedia in the Control Center from totem to benshee (and maybe done something else I do not remember):
    Now (by miracle? ;-)) I can play .ogg-files with banshee (0.13.2) by double-clicking on them.

    Question Re: Changing file associations to banshee for .ogg files

    The problem is solved for me
    but I am still curious about the right command to ad a double-clicked file to banshee's actual playing list. (I want to lean a little bit more about linux/opensuse so I can solve the next problem not just by chance.)

    I could not find any manualpages or infosides belonging to banshee. Only this "--help"-file under the command line:
    "[...]banshee --help
    Usage: banshee [ options ... ]
    where options include:

    --enqueue <files> Files to enqueue, must be last argument specified
    --show Show window
    --hide Hide window
    --next Play next song
    --previous Play previous song
    --toggle-playing Toggle playing of current song
    --play Play current song
    --pause Pause current song
    --shutdown Shutdown Banshee
    --query-artist Get artist name for current playing song
    --query-album Get album name for current playing song
    --query-title Get track title for current playing song
    --query-genre Get track genre for current playing song
    --query-duration Get duration of current playing song in seconds
    --query-position Get position of current playing song in seconds
    --query-rating Get track rating for current playing song
    --set-rating Set track rating for current playing song
    --query-uri Get URI of current playing song
    --query-cover-uri Get URI of the album cover of current playing song
    --query-status Get player status (-1: Not loaded, 0: Paused, 1: Playing)
    --hide-field Do not display field name for --query-* results
    --help List available command line arguments
    --audio-cd <dev> Start Banshee and/or select source mapped to <device>
    --blank-cd <dev> Start Banshee and/or select source mapped to <device>
    --dap <dev> Start Banshee and/or select source mapped to <device>
    --no-source-change Do not change sources with --dap or --audio-cd
    --no-present Do not bring the player window to the foreground
    --version Show Banshee Version"

    To me "banshee --enqueue <files>" seems to be it but I still do not know how to specify the argument "<files>"
    as the double-clicked file.
    Maybe I should ask the question again in the banshee forum?
