Description Daniel Malmgren 2004-08-20 17:08:08 UTC
Description of problem:
When double clicking a file in Nautilus or right clicking and choosing
"open" nothing happens.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double click a file (anything but a directory) in Nautilus
Actual results:
Nothing except a line in .xsession-errors:
/path/to/file: /path/to/file: cannot execute binary file

Expected results:
I expect Nautilus to to what I put in the settings

Additional info:
It's been like this since 2.6 -> 2.7 migration.
Right clicking files and choosing any of the "open with..."
alternatives works fine.

Does this still happen for you with latest rawhide?
There has been a lot of changes and fixes in this area.

Comment 2 Daniel Malmgren 2004-09-02 13:04:50 UTC
Yep. Exactly same result with latest of everything (nautilus 2.7.92-1).

Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2004-09-06 13:27:03 UTC
Very strange. I don't see this at all. I wonder what the difference
with your system is.
Can you try creating a new user?

Comment 4 Daniel Malmgren 2004-09-06 13:36:29 UTC
I later found this in gnome bugzilla. It has with permissions to do.
If the execute-flag is set, nautilus tries to execute it instead of
looking at the mime type. (thing is, mostly when I double click
something, it is a movie, and I've got all of my movies on FAT32,
leaving me little control over permissions)


Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2004-09-07 11:05:03 UTC
Ah, i see. That explains things. On FAT32 everything is +x.

Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2004-09-07 13:47:22 UTC
I got this fixed. Patch waiting for release-team approval.

Comment 7 Daniel Malmgren 2004-09-07 13:55:28 UTC
Well, you can make things not +x (using umask in fstab), problem is
then it's for entire partition and then all directories are non

Comment 8 Alexander Larsson 2004-09-10 11:01:27 UTC
Fix is upstream.

Comment 9 Alexander Larsson 2004-09-14 07:44:31 UTC
gnome-vfs2 2.8.0 has fix.
