[Bug 4265] Launch music player shortcut is hardcoded in the sources

Public bug report changed:


I've been quite irritated by this bug, but found an easy work around until the player to launch gets configurable: create a symlink called "rhythmbox" to your favourite player in a directory situated before /usr/bin in your path.
For example:
ln -s /usr/bin/xmms /usr/local/bin/rhythmbox
did the trick for me as I have /usr/local/bin before /usr/bin in my path.

You can then use the "media" key to launch whatever you symlinked to.

Hope this helps,
