Description Dee-Ann LeBlanc 2004-09-17 09:41:30 UTC

Description of problem:
When I'm in Nautilus as a regular user, I expect that I should be able
to double-click an RPM, have it ask me for my root password, and have
the RPM install for me. Instead, what happens is that it opens File
Roller and tries to extract the RPM's contents. I don't know if this
is a bug or a feature but it's not very useful for a regular RPM.
Maybe for a SRC RPM as an option, but not a regular one. :)

This is in FC3T3candidate0908

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double-click Home icon to open home directory
2. Double-click Desktop icon 
3. Double-click Downloads icon
4. Double-click RPM file

Actual Results:  file roller opens the contents of the file, if it can
find any

Expected Results:  the RPM should install (or I should be asked for my
root password and then it should install)

This is very strange. I get this too, and system-install-packages
isn't even in the open with menu. But system-install-packages.desktop
is in mimeinfo file, and its even the default in the defaults.list!

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2004-09-21 15:48:55 UTC
This is because system-install-packages.desktop has onlyshowin=KDE.

This is not needed anymore. Gnome now supports NoDisplay=true.

Fixed in CVS, will be in the next build
