Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131670
"Preferred Applications" won't save Mailer preferences
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:20:10 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-default-applications-properties, all of a sudden, has decided
that Emacs is my preferred text editor, which had been 'Text Editor.'
It won't let me revert the change.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-default-applications-properties
2. Change preferred text editor from Emacs to Text Editor
3. Close gnome-default-applications-properties, saving changes
4. Start gnome-default-applications-properties again
Preferred text editor is Emacs
Preferred text editor is Text Editor
Poking around in gconf, I see:
Shouldn't I see something like 'text_editor/' here? Maybe the setting
is stored elsewhere...
When my i386 box is less wonky I'll see if I can reproduce it there.
Text editor changes the mime data, but the code has not been changed
to use the new mime type system.
In fact, it spews g_warning about using deprecated apis.
I've also realized that my browser and mailer are locked down as well.
Not my terminal, though.

Text editor and browser are back to normal. Mailer is still borked.

OK, it's either gotten worse or I've just started paying more attention. Things
that are broken now in gconf://desktop/gnome/url-handlers :
