This is actually a very interesting observation that will affect any "generic recent files list" based on Zeitgeist.
My guess is that the Banshee history just describes all music playing activities as an event of typezg: UserActivity an a subject that is a nfo:FileDataObject and has interpretation nfo:Audio or something. What I believe is the "correct" behaviour for the music player is to: - When the user manually selects a song log as described above - When the music player automatically skips to the next song the manifestation type of the event should be zg:ScheduledActivity With this logging pattern the "generic recent files list" will only contain the songs you manually selected for playback which I think is "correct" FWIW :-) (and will make the Unity lenses work without modification (== less work for me yay!)) : The docs for zg:ScheduledActivity in fact reads: "An event that was directly triggered by some user initiated sequence of actions. For example a music player automatically changing to the next song in a playlist". ** Changed in: unity Assignee: (unassigned) => Mikkel Kamstrup Erlandsen (kamstrup) ** Changed in: unity Status: New => Confirmed -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Data-Sources. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/748120 Title: Enabling Zeitgeist data-logger in Banshee clutters the lenses Status in Banshee Music Player: Invalid Status in Unity: Confirmed Status in Zeitgeist Framework: New Status in Zeitgeist Data-Providers: New Bug description: Because I want my recently played songs to show up in, for example, the Synapse launcher, I enabled the Zeitgeist data logger extension in Banshee. However, due to this all my recently played songs show up under "recent files" in the files lens. Consequently, it becomes practically unusable. _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
