Description Terry Griffin 2004-10-26 17:56:38 EDT
Description of problem:

Default operation of Konqueror for opening OpenOffice files is
to view them with the Archiving Tool instead of with OpenOffice.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create and save a text document with OpenOffice (.sxw file)
2. View directory containing the document using Konqueror
3. Click on the document
Actual results:

Document is opened with the KDE Archive Viewer. (Interesting
but hardly useful.)

Expected results:

Document is opened with OpenOffice.

Additional info:

The 'file' command identifies OpenOffice documents as zip files
which they apparently are at a high level. But somehow GNOME
gets around this little detail and does the right thing.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Konqueror in FC3 doesn't handle OpenOffice files correctly either, but
the symptoms are different. It doesn't mistake the files for Zip archives
as with FC2. In fact it doesn't associated the files with anything. Worse,
you can't permanently establish an association. If you right click on a file
to do an "Open With..." you can select an OpenOffice app such as OpenOffice
Calc, but for some reason the checkbox to permanently associate the file type
with an app is missing. So you have to respecify OpenOffice every time
you want to open the file. My current set of related FC3 packages is:

Works in FC5 (opens with appropriate openoffice app). Probably was a 
mimetype problem only.
