    Song Previews No Longer Play With Mouse Hover

    Prior to upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10 - Oneiric 64-bit, I would be able to open my Music folder and hover my mouse over an MP3 file, as an example, and I could hear a preview of the song. Since upgrading from Natty to Oneiric, I have lost that capability.

    Songs play fine in a music player and I don't seem to have any other sound issues other than described above. Couldn't find anything specific to this issue. Does anyone have an idea of what this might be and is there a way to resolve this?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Thanks mc4man for the reply.

    I actually have gnome sushi installed as a workaround. I am hoping there is a fix so my system will work like it used to. I'm using the Unity desktop as my default.

    I did read that some Ubuntu Oneiric installations/upgrades turn off file previews by default, but mine are enabled to "Local Files Only" so that isn't the issue.

    I appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction or if a solution has been found.

    I have just updated to Oneiric and would love to have this feature back.
