Description Brad Smith 2004-12-16 17:41:20 UTC
Description of problem:
The docs (section 7.5 of "Nautilus File Manager" in Gnome's help)
mentions the File Types and Programs preferences panel, which does not
seem to exist anymore so the method that the current docs describe for
associating apps with file types does not seem to work. You can still
set app associations in a file's properties, but should there be a
more comprehensive tool there or do the docs need to be changed?

Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2006-11-08 11:41:44 UTC
No, the docs are just old. That panel went away long ago.
