Default MetaData / Audio Files Problems (Bug?)

7.10 gusty,(kubuntu) there seems to be something odd,
or a setting is not turn on.

Problem:
First--> when dragging a .flac file to the desktop it will display its
meta-data ( NO Problem ) However, it will not play (in preview mode) when
holding the mouse over the .flac. (BUT) put the .flac inside a folder,
on the desktop it plays and shows all metadata. ( Very ODD)

Why doesn't it play on the desktop ?

Second--> Have a external usb drive, that is mounted and contain .mp3,
.flac files, photos, and docs...and .pdf..etc (a backup drive).

Now, on that drive, when moving the mouse around and selecting,
a .pdf or doc, or photo The Metadata displays in a pop up windows,
just like it should... (However)... when select any .mp3 or flac, (audio)
the metadata Doesn't display at all, BUT, the music does play in preview mode.

I thought I saw a very quick flash of a pop window but.. it would not repeat,
for any audio file.

Is there a setting or is there a conflit going on somewhere on with
the playing of audio files on the desktop, and also, metadata being display
for audio files on a external usb drive ?

** Please note: Never had this problem in feisty 7.04 **
** Please note: have all preview setting on, with 50 meg preview file size **

TIA
Richard

Perhaps it won't play because the _file manager_ allows for "previews"
and you are not viewing the file on your desktop through the file
manager? Try opening up D3lphin (or whatever file manager you use),
then navigate to your desktop folder and see if it will preview for
you.

Andrew, that worked fine ( THANKS )
How about the issue with external usb drive, where the metadata is not being
display for ANY audio file ? ( BUT ) They will play just fine in preview
mode. Moving the mouse over them.
