    Hover over a music file to play

    it.....was a function that was always present in Ubuntu

    it seems to have disappeared on Oneiric ; anyone knows how to bring it back


    should it be there by default? has it been canned?

    gnome3 is not longer using that, it's being replaced by an audio/video preview/player

    To see -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-sushi
    To use just highlight a file, audio or video, then press spacebar
    To get playback the codec must have support in gstreamer already installed, otherwise sushi will just do nothing

    thank you mc4 for the info here

    i fail to see how this improves anything it is cumbersome not like the arlier hover to play was so simple and fast


    i really wonder at times
