Description Jef Spaleta 2005-03-07 23:51:03 EST
Description of problem: New default file format for oowriter (odt) doesn't seem to have a file association. As a result nautilus doesn't see oowriter as a default canditate to open odt files in oowriter. I'm hazy on how all this mime crap actually works so this might not be the right place to file. I see application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text in the writer.desktop file so I'm assuming that entry is suppose to do the deed and associate writer to odt files. Please instruct me on anything I need to specifically check on my rawhide install. I haven't checked the other oo apps yet with regard to whether the new opendocument fileformats are being associated correctly in gnome. I would assume they are also affected. openoffice.org-writer-1.9.82-1 -jef

caolanm->davidz: Can we add these new oasis standard mimetypes to shared-mime-info List at http://framework.openoffice.org/documentation/mimetypes/mimetypes.html
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2005-03-09 11:33:18 EST
This is also upstream bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2265 I've created a patch and added it there too. This patch will appear in shared-mime-info-0.15-11 in Rawhide.
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2005-03-09 11:37:06 EST
Btw, another bug is that Nautilus doesn't display the right icon - I believe that is a bug with the OO.o 1.9 desktop file.
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2005-03-09 12:24:31 EST
Actually, wrt what I said in comment 3, what needs to be done is teaching gnome-icon-theme about the icons for the new mime types, e.g. there needs to be gnome-mime-application-vnd.oasis.opendocument.text.png files and so forth. I suggest opening a bug against gnome-icon-theme to fix this.
