I have Ubuntu 13.10 with Rhythmbox set as the default music player, but when I double left-click a music file (all my files are wma) from my Music folder it launches Rhythmbox, but does not automatically play the file. All I get is the Rhythmbox Library page, with the green arrowhead and 'Not Playing'. I can play the/any file fine from within Rhythmbox. Why won't it automatically play the music file?
