Description Jim Cornette 2004-01-28 03:37:20 UTC

Description of problem:
When trying to open starthere.desktop, I get the following error.

There is no action associated with "starthere.desktop".

You can configure GNOME to associate applications with file types. Do
you want to associate an application with this file type now?

If I dragged the desktop to the panel and clicked, I get this error.

Cannot show start-here:/

Details: Unknown internal error while displaying this location.

If I open my home folder and look into the start-here:/// area, I see
three items that are all listed as application/x-desktop and none of
them open.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-mime-data-2.4.1-1
shared-mime-info-0.13-1 - gnome-mime-data-2.4.1-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on starthere.desktop
2. get error message
3.check properties
    

Actual Results:  1. and 2.- get this error
There is no action associated with "starthere.desktop".

You can configure GNOME to associate applications with file types. Do
you want to associate an application with this file type now

3. information says it is of MIME type application/x-desktop

Expected Results:  expected the start here icon to show applications,
preferences and sysconfig as folders.

Additional info:

This error started on about 1-23-04 after there were new updates added
to the mix. The menus and the starthere icon have been messed up ever
since.

Comment 1 Jim Cornette 2004-01-29 00:57:23 UTC
The association with the *.desktop files has been resolved in the
latest rawhide updates.

Thanks!
