Audacious in Current

I am using KDE 4.5.1 (Although this issue persisted with 4.5 as well), Multilib and Slackware current as of 6th September (Issue has been present for me in most current releases since 10th August).

Audacious simply fails to load. I have tried recompiling, using older versions and even tried compiling the newer version 2.4.0 from the site but to no avail.

I really like the new XORG update since my laptop runs cooler and would rather fix audacious than revert xorg.


I fixed this my editing the .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/ to exec "audacious", not "audacious2 %U" and it works flawlessly now.
