I just moved up from 9.04 by doing a new install of Ubuntu 9.10, not an upgrade.

It appears that if I left click on a video using Konqueror as a file manager and then select OPEN WITH, none of the video players, including mplayer and VLC, etc., will successfully launch to play the movie. I see them appear on my launch bar for a while, then they abort.

However, if I use the same approach using Nautilus, everything works fine! The same movies with the same players work fine...

Does anyone have a fix or an idea how to investigate this?

Thanks! :p
