View Full Version : [ubuntu] Rhythmbox Configuration

May 2nd, 2010, 04:59 PM
Hello All,

I was just wondering if it were possible to alter the behavior of Rhythmbox in the following way via the source code or more conveniently its config files. I am annoyed by Rb's habit of minimizing when I hit the close button. This seems like a potentially easy alteration, I just don't know where these files are located. I am running Lucid and it's default version of Rb 0.12.8

Thank You,

You can change the close/minimize behavior through gconf-editor.

Open a terminal and type in


Then browse to
apps -> rhythmbox -> plugins -> status-icon

Set status-icon-mode to 2

This should cause Rhythmbox to close completely when you press the close button.

Hope that helps.

Is this where I might be able to allow RB to edit and change track # and disc # from the properties window when selecting single and multiple tracks?
