My Banshee Media Player just crashed, the window to force quit didn't appear, so I opened a terminal and typed "ps aux | grep banshee" to close it using the kill command. I got this output

daniel@Silex:~$ ps aux | grep banshee

As you can see in the 3082 line, the path says /usr/lib/banshee/Banshee.exe... I didn't knew I was backporting Wine to run banshee :S

Am I having a problem or it's meant to be (or appear) that way?

Interesting one!

I just started banshee to check what I would get in terminal and it is almost the same, except that I do not see the
--device-activate-play=/home/daniel/.gvfs/CDDA montado en sr0at the end of the first two lines, mine just has
--play-enqueuedI do get the "/usr/lib/banshee/banshee.exe" just like your output, and my banshee was playing perfectly as I ran the command. I presume from this that it is nothing to worry about and that the banshee.exe is a standard file of the app. Weird, I must admit.

I think, however, that it may be related to the apps that use mono, as the command
locate .exegave me this output

/usr/share/mono/MonoGetAssemblyName.exe ie. all applications that rely on mono as dependencies.

I see... thank gosh is not a big deal! :D

BTW you didn't see that output because I was trying to play a CD, that the mounting path that my drive has. :)

Thanks a lot for answering :)

Banshee is as native as any app written in, say, Python. It's got a .exe in the filename because Mono follows the recommendations in the ECMA335 specification it follows.
