View Full Version : [SOLVED] Choosing Default Music Player for iPod (Rythmbox to Banshee)

January 12th, 2010, 12:37 PM
I recently installed Banshee and would like to set it as my default music player. Currently, when I plug in my iPod, Rythmbox auto loads and then Banshee cannot access the device. Is there a way to go about changing this setup so when I plug in the iPod, it's Banshee that loads it and not Rythmbox? Cheers.

*USING Ubuntu 9.10

1. Under System>>Preferred Applications>>Multimedia tab, select Banshee from dropdown list

2. In Nautilus>>Edit>>Preferences>>Media tab, make changes to media handling when they get connected.

Excellent! Thanks. I'll try that when I get home today.

I'm new to linux/ubuntu (hardy), and I was having this same issue - Mze's post did the trick - thanks. Still having trouble figuring out how to get banshee and my ipod (classic 80gb) to communicate. The ipod is mounted, but doesn't show up in banshee. Gotta be something simple here I'm missing.... any help is appreciated.
