Description Will Shackleford 2004-01-03 13:52:20 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

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):

How reproducible:

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.
