Rhythmbox don't respect GNOME lockdown features
Submitted by Luca Ferretti
A good GNOME-compliant application should respect basic lockdown features provided by GNOME Desktop.
You can find them under gconf:///desktop/gnome/lockdown directory.
By now, the only lockdown key related to Rhythmbox features is "disable_file_to_disk".
When this key is true, Rhythmbox should not save anything on disk; this will include:
- no "Save Playlist" feature
- no rip CD feature
- no podcasts download (maybe no podcast plugin at all?)
- no music shop download (maybe no music shop at all if you can't stream?)
- no album art and lyrics retrival (not sure about it)
- other ?
Of course you'll have a "gelded" player if this key is true, but note that it will be used only on special environment.
For example you could need to use Rhythmbox as a simple jukebox (play only available music files or radio stations). This also means that Rhythmbox should provide its own lockdown keys, for example a key to set enabled music sources (for example enable only Magnatune to create a music buying kiosk), or a key to prevent the addition of new radio stations or podcast's feeds. But this is stuff for another bug report.
