Description James Laska 2005-02-08 08:24:25 EST
RPM nautilus-2.9.90-1

The new-ish nautilus "Open With" file properties tab presents what appears to be
a selectable radio option when no applications are yet associated with a file
type/extension.  For example, I downloaded a .patch file and wanted to associate
it to gvim.  The "Open With" screen has a radio button next to the text "No
applications selected."  Would it be better to display this text without the
radio button? 

Attaching screenshot to demonstrate.

Hmm. That looks very strange. I don't think that happens unless you have a
desktop file with that description added. If you select this and click on the
file, what does it open?

Also, take a look in  ~/.local/share/applications/ and see what it contains.

I am unable to select the radio button with the label "No applications
Selected".  If I dbl click on the file I am presented with a dialog titled
"Can't Display Location" - Couldn't display "/home/jlaska/Desktop/mailman.patch".


> Also, take a look in  ~/.local/share/applications/ and see what it contains.

$ find .local/ -type f -print -exec cat {} \;
.local/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache
[MIME Cache]

.local/share/applications/defaults.list
[Default Applications]
text/x-patch=(null)

If I remove the "text/x-patch=(null)" line from
$HOME/.local/share/applications/defaults.list .. and restart nautilus it comes
back.  I imagine it is scanning my Desktop and seeing that file and adding it to
he list?

NOTE: The same behavior can be reproduced if you create an empty file with an
unknown extension (for example: "test file.asdf").
