Description Tom Duffy 2004-11-01 12:04:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20041020 Epiphany/1.4.4

Description of problem:
Whenever somebody sends me a .doc from Solaris Mozilla 1.4
(User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.4)
Gecko/20040414), it sets the mime type of the attachment to
application/soffice which doesn't have a registered viewer in gnome by
default, so Evolution does not know how to open it (I have to save the
file to disk and open it manually).


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. receive email with attachment type application/soffice
2. try to open the attachment
3 [details]. nothing is associated, only "Save as" offered as choice

Actual Results:  Have to save file to disk and open manually

Expected Results:  Have option to launch in Openoffice.org

Looks more like an evolution issue than an oo.org one; reassigning to
me and setting component accordingly
Comment 2 Tom Duffy 2005-03-14 14:01:46 EST
Also, please add application/staroffice as this is also one that is sent.
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2005-08-18 00:29:28 EDT
Evolution should have an Open With.. option for mimetypes it doesn't recognise;
changing Summary field accordingly.
Comment 4 Tejas Dinkar 2005-08-19 00:38:10 EDT
not an x86_64 bug

It is also true with .wmv files, in firefox
