Description D.S. Ljungmark 2004-06-15 13:14:26 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Comment 2 John Thacker 2006-04-22 20:52:51 UTC
This WORKSFORME in more recent releases.  As mentioned above, FC2 is Fedora
Legacy (as is FC3) and this is not a security problem.
