Description Toralf 2004-07-03 12:51:42 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
There is no open action for rpm files in the default setup. I'd expect
system-install-packages to be associate with rpms, of course. In fact,
that application isn't even selectable in "Edit file type" dialog, or
in "Open with" menu for rpm files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double click an rpm file
2. Right-click on file
3. Select "Open With" in context menu

Actual Results:
1) Popup with the text:

There is no action associated with
appears. I clicking "Associate Application" in that box, "Edit file
type" box for MIME type "application/x-rpm" is displayed - but it has
an empty "Default action:" list

2, 3) "Open with" menu contains only "An Application..."

Expected Results:  system-install-packages is started.

system-install-packages or "Install Packages" also mentioned in "Open
with" menu and in "Edit file type" for "application/x-rpm"

Additional info:

I really don't understand why the app isn't at least mentioned in
context menu and "Edit file type", since 
looks good to me.

The problem could be that I have /usr/share/gnome-vfs/gnome-vfs.keys
with a "shortlist" for rapplication/x-rpm that references
"redhat-install-packages", not "system-install-packages". I also
notice that gnome-mime-data, which installs this file, is still at
version 2.4.1 in the Fedora Core dist (where everything else GNOME is
version 2.6.0)
Comment 2 Toralf 2004-07-03 13:12:01 EDT
Right. I didn't notice earlier that this was registered already.
Sorry. Marking as duplicate...
