Description of problem:
When on this system I cannot seem to browse .desktop files and make
them recognized as icons, they get a plain text association+icon, and
trying to open them gives you a dialog that the file isn't associated
with an action. (rough translation of the dialog)
On another system I have, it works, and I'm scratching my head
wondering what could be the cause here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. point nautilus at preferences:// or launch gnome-control-center
Actual Results: A listing of .desktop files that doesn't start.
Expected Results: A way to start the various capplets
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
This WORKSFORME in more recent releases. As mentioned above, FC2 is Fedora
Legacy (as is FC3) and this is not a security problem.
