[Bug 1499889] Re: gstreamer-codec-install: error: no such option: --interaction


This bug was fixed in the package sessioninstaller -

sessioninstaller (0.20+bzr150-0ubuntu2) wily; urgency=medium

  * New gstreamer codec install API passes the parameters --interaction
    --desktop-id and -startup-notification-id to us. We don't support them
    (yet), and should not error out but should ignore them instead. They are
    part of a new PackageKit API which is yet to be implmented but GStreamer
    calls us manually. (LP: #1499889)

Bug description:
  Attempting to play a mp3 file with Totem on the latest Wily daily
  build (from the USB stick).

  Totem opens but no playback start.
  On the terminal I got this:

  ** Message: Missing plugin: gstreamer|1.0|totem|MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder|decoder-audio/mpeg, mpegversion=(int)1, mpegaudioversion=(int)1, layer=(int)3, parsed=(boolean)true (MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder)
  Falling back to package information
  Usage: gstreamer-codec-install [options]

  gstreamer-codec-install: error: no such option: --interaction

  The wizard to install the missing codec actually fails to launch.

  The very same happen when attempting to play a video. Strangely
  enough, when the audio codec is supported but the video one is not,
  Totem starts to play the audio and just display a black rectangle
  instead of the actual video stream.
