Description of problem:
Nautilus reckons wordperfect files are application/wordperfect
because that's what shared-mime-info tells it. Abiword is registered
as application/x-wordperfect, so nothing happens
I don't see application/wordperfect on the IANA list
(http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/application/), so looks
like it should be application/x-wordperfect in shared-mime-info, but
then theres a new wrinkle. In March application/vnd.wordperfect was
added to the IANA list. So now it looks like shared-mime-info should
update the wordperfect type to be vnd.wordperfect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use nautilus to browse a dir with some wordperfect files in them,
type reported is application/wordperfect
caolanm->jrb: ping, is this a problematic issue after all ?
Yeah, but we should probably move the bug upstream.
