Description Carl Worth 2004-12-16 16:20:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

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):

How reproducible:

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
gnome-font-viewer so
   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

Additional info:

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...".
