When I insert an audio CD (e.g., from an audio book), Ubuntu 16.04 (and also 14.04) wants to start RhythmBox. Starting to play, say Track N, it plays to the end of that track and then jumps (randomly?) to some other track which is not Track N+1. This leads to a rather discontinuous reading of the book or symphony.
I have tried some other players but without success:
1) Kaffeine does sort of work, sometimes, but you have to start each track (from the file browser showing Audio Disc files named TrackN.wav), but it plays only that track and then stops, necessitating going on to the next track by hand. Seems to be disc-dependent as to whether it plays or not.
2) Other options in the menu of Recommended Applications are Videos and WinAmp, but neither at all.
3) From the Software Center I also tried the CD Player and KsCD. After installation they do not show up in the Recommended Applications list. These apparently must be launched from the command line, but in any case don't play at all.
