Description of problem:
I try to open the file hs.rm, there is a message that says this no
action is associated. There is a button "associate application" that I
click on which brings up a dialog box labeled "edit file type".
I try to associate with realplay, I click OK there is no error.
However if I click on hs.rm again I get the same error saying nothing
is associated with this file type. I again click on the associate
application button now inside it seems to still have the info I set
the last time but it does not seem to be using it. I changed the icon
just to see if that would have an effect. It also is saved but it does
not change the display inside nautilus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Change a file type association.
2. Open nautilus
3. Click on a file of the appropriate type.
Actual Results: Change has no effect on nautilus.
Expected Results: Nautilus should use the new program to launch the
associated application. The icon displayed in naulilus should match
the one selected in the edit file types dialog.
This is the generates-the-old-style-mimetype-config bug.
How to resolve it?
I am annoyed with it.
Fixed in fc3test2 and later.
