Description Jiri Cerny 2006-04-11 10:40:44 EDT
Description of problem: On FC5 system with all recent updates some pdf files are given mime type text/plain (as seen eg. in file properties in Nautilus). From observation, this problem appears only for PDF files that contain a lot of ASCII characters at the begining of the file. It has then influence on the right-click-menu entries, and on applications offered to open the file. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): shared-mime-info-0.17-1.fc5.1 gnome-vfs2-2.14.0-2 How reproducible: 1. Save e.g. file at http://ima.epfl.ch/~cerny/bad.pdf on local disk. 2. In nautilus right click on it -> properties type is Plain text document (modulo translation error from czech) I can attach the file if necessary, but it is rather big. Expected results: Type is application/pdf

Right, this issue has been around for a couple of weeks now, also on a current "rawhide" system ("shared-mime-info-0.17-2"). Occurs most of the time when a PDF file is opened from within a web browser ("epiphany" in my case). Once the file is saved to disk, it can be opened without problem, e.g. with "evince foo.pdf".
Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2006-06-23 04:00:24 EDT
Seems to be caused by this upstream bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6577 upping the priority of application/pdf to 60 in the /usr/share/mime/magic fixed this for me. This is probably a dupe of bug #193582.
Comment 3 Joachim Frieben 2006-06-23 08:04:02 EDT
I had posted a related report for the development tree, see Bug #190858. The issue is also solved by upgrading "shared-mime-info" to current "CVS", as I had pointed out in: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=190858#c6
Comment 4 Alex Lancaster 2006-06-29 11:56:24 EDT
Can this be closed as a duplicate of bug #193582? shared-mime-info-0.17-1.fc5.2 has been pushed for fc5 which fixes this.
Comment 5 Joachim Frieben 2006-06-29 13:21:40 EDT
This report should be closed as solved in "ERRATA". The Fedora development tree still has only the broken package.
