Description of problem:
After a fresh install of FC3, double-clicking on a font in the
fonts:/// view results in an error message dialog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 3
2. In nautilus, hit Ctrl-L and type fonts:///
3. Double click any icon
Actual Results: I get an error dialog of the form:
Can't Display Location
Couldn't display "fonts:///Bitstream%20Vera%20Sans".
Expected Results: 1) There should be a default association to
that a font preview is displayed.
2) Even in the absence of that, it should prompt me as to what
application I would like to use rather than just giving the error
gnome-font-viewer is in control-center. It needs to have the font
mimetypes in its desktop file.
I agree that the error message is a bit bad though, but you can open
it with "open with other application...".
This bug has been fixed in Fedora Core 4.
