    Exclamation Banshee opens when I open "Pictures" from menu

    So I click on the Ubuntu main menu and go to Places>Pictures and Banshee opens. If I go to any of the files, Banshee opens (whether minimized or not). If I click on "Computer" or anything other than a folder, it works fine...

    I'm not sure how to open a file in terminal or I could do that and give you the output.

    I have no idea why it suddenly started doing this. I might try reinstalling Banshee.

    I'm running 9.10 Karmic Koala right now.

    Update: I tried uninstalling Banshee, logging out, reinstalling, logging out and tried to open "Pictures" again. Same thing happened!

    type this in terminal /home/usr/Pictures/apicture.jpg

    replace apicture with the name of any picture you have and usr with your user name.

    see if banshee opens

    I tried it, this is what it gave:

    HTML Code:
    $ /home/ty/Pictures/Astronomy/Aurora.jpg
    bash: /home/ty/Pictures/Astronomy/Aurora.jpg: cannot execute binary file

    I've found a solution:

    Apparently it had been marked to open with Banshee. This fixed it though...I only had to do it with one folder and it takes care of the rest of those types.
